Beautiful grounds but make sure you know what you are getting

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

The resort is lovely with wonderful gardens, pool and absolutely fabulous employees all looking to make your stay perfect. Saifon was our villa host and she was fantastic - helping to sort everything out and booking our trips. We ate a couple of times in Sea Fire Salt which was very good and the rest of the time we had room service as the kids liked the menus. The quality was overall excellent. The 2 bed pool pavilion is very spacious and perfect to lounge around in when it was raining too much to go out. I loved the outside shower off the bathroom. We had the cookery lesson - that was great although it wasn't always easy understanding the chef. We cooked 4 courses so actually you can spread that over 2 meals (we had 2 dishes delivered to the room) making it more economic. I feel confident enough to recreate the dishes again at home. As part of that we choose to add on the morning trip to the market. DO NOT choose this - it is a waste of time and money and i'm quite surprised that Anantara thinks this is a quality worthwhile experience - we got to the market so late that lots of stands were empty or covered and it didn't really feel terribly interesting. Also it wasn't to choose the ingredients for the lesson so what is the point really? Be aware that the beach here is not really swimming friendly with strong currents and potentially big waves - in fact there are no loungers on the beach which is a bit of an indication. Whilst beautiful and empty do not expect to be laying out on it. The pool does back on to the beach. I'll be honest i have been to much better hotel pools and this one could really do with a bit of maintenance - many of the beds in the shallow pool were missing parasols although the stands were there. After our first morning at the pool we did not bother going back. Finally when we booked the form said "Mai Khao Phuket Villas" and gave us 2 choices - it turned out the one we chose was in the vacation club - this wasn't made clear and to be honest the environment is not really the same even though it is just across the road from the hotel. The reception area resembled a bus station everyday with hoards of "vacation club" people arriving and leaving and just behind the villas are blocks of flats. The upside is you get more space in the villa and a kitchen. I'm not saying it is bad - just beware what you are getting - if you are a family it is near the kids club so a good idea, if you are a couple on honeymoon i would avoid it. But the real problem is that twice we were approached to go and "learn" about the vacation club benefits and in exchange for an hour of our time we would get 6000 baht. Frankly we were there for 4 days so didn't want to waste precious time whatever the financial compensation but in any case why would we want to invest in that coming from where we do? The first time the person understood and let it go immediately but the second time it was very sneakily done outside a shop and the guy wouldn't take no for an answer. It all felt very Costa del Sol circa 1980 - not exactly the up market experience that Anantara tries to portray. Management really needs to address this - without it i would probably have given them a 5/5 mark.

Thailand vacation

Champaign, Illinois

The rooms were spacious. The bathrooms clean and up to date. The beds were comfortable. The spa was excellent but very expensive and the did not have specific spa options that were in the spa menu (facial, etc.) It is very kid friendly and the staff were friendly and accommodating.
