Named as ‘Asia’s Most Romantic Resort’, Anantara Lawana Resort & Spa Samui is nestled on the quiet, pristine northern end of Chaweng Beach, one of Koh Samui’s most famous and longest beaches. Modern luxury in the style of the island’s original Chinese merchant settlers, the resort offers 122 spacious guest rooms and pool villas. Leisure facilities include a beachside infinity pool, an award-winning Anantara Spa, a fitness centre, whilst its exquisite restaurants include beachside Ocean Kiss and Tree Tops restaurant, the most romantic and exclusive dining journeys within the resort.

With its 14 acres of luxuriantly landscaped gardens and lagoon pools, Anantara Hua Hin Resort & Spa has received ‘Asia’s Leading Green Resort’.

Its renowned tropical gardens were the creation of globally acclaimed landscape designer Bill Bensley who describes the results as “biologically interesting by making five distinct sub-gardens; the white garden, the heliconia garden, the red garden, the palm garden and the yellow garden”.
