Mixed feelings

Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom

The view from the Anantara is undoubtedly breathtaking but surprisingly that isn’t what made the hotel stand out for me. Every single member of staff we met from the gardeners to management were a complete delight to meet and speak to. The chefs in the restaurant do a fantastic job and the food is exceptional. We stayed in a Deluxe Canyon View room & the sunsets are fantastic from there. The reason for the 4 stars is in-spite of the above is the feeling of disappointment. With views, treatment & accommodation being excellent I strongly advise anyone looking to book to avoid weekends. With the climate cooler, expats bring the family to the mountains which turns the feeling of tranquility into more of a crèche. The infinity pool is full of children jumping in and screaming, running around your subbed etc. It is the same during the meal times in the restaurant. While the hotel is quiet it would be nice it the option was offered to couples without children to use the villas with own pool so they can enjoy the tranquility/ relaxation they were expecting. Would I recommend you to visit? YES definitely, but avoid weekends if possible Would I return? Regrettably no. I had such high hopes but left feeling quite flat.

We enjoyed a lot their soap menu ! The hotel offered all the facilities imaginable in a remote location going from Spa to fitness to movie selection online. The hotel is dominating the valley leaving a wide open view for our eyes pleasure ! The international breakfast offers a nice selection of dishes same as the dinner time.
