Koh Samui’s luxurious island hideaway – Anantara Lawana Koh Samui Resort is set to open its doors on July 1st. A lush oasis just steps from buzzing Chaweng Beach, the Anantara resort is welcoming guests once again with its signature hospitality, an emphasis on family experiences, new drinking and dining concepts and a raft of measures in place to ensure health and wellbeing of all guests.
The resort has been awarded the “Amazing Thailand Safety and Health Administration: SHA” certification from the Ministry of Tourism and Sports, and has been acknowledged as a “Lodging Facility with High Hygiene and Safety Standards” from the Department of Health and Ministry of Public Health. Guests stay with peace of mind thanks to measures including digital check-in, temperature checks, contactless greetings and luggage sanitisation upon arrival; enhanced cleaning schedules throughout the resort and high sanitisation levels in rooms, common areas and transport; guideline-compliant spacing in dining outlets, the gym and other areas.
With the reopening, the resort launches its brand new Kids’ Club, where younger guests will be entertained and delighted by a range of daily activities. As part of its commitment to the environment, Anantara Lawana will equip its new haven for little ones with PlanToys, a range of fun, creative and eco-friendly playthings. In a bid to build a sustainable world, PlanToys takes every stage of its production process into account in order to create truly sustainable play.
Keeping guests with kids in mind, the resort reopens with a new room category. The new Family Pool Villa offers a luxurious hideaway designed for two adults and two children. The private pool comes complete with floating rings and the dining sala beside the sundeck is perfect for family barbecues. Kids get a welcome pack filled with special activities and their own poolside tent, plus, there’s a Nintendo Switch on hand. Adults enjoy a little peace with four hours of babysitting when dining in one of the resort’s award-winning restaurants and under-12s eat free.
For a smooth and seamless experience, villa guests enjoy the attentive service of a dedicated Villa Host. Every villa across all categories comes with a private butler who is on hand for any request, taking care of every step of the stay, from check-in to check-out. This service is particularly well suited to guests looking to social distance in luxurious peace and privacy.
Food and drink remains an integral part of the Anantara Lawana experience and guests are welcomed back to Tree Tops Sky Dining & Bar to sample a new menu centred around the finest local ingredients. Michelin-trained Chef De Cuisine Jakov Orsulic uses his considerable talents to create gourmet delicacies from the island and the ocean. Meanwhile, refreshing drinks are served at Pool Bar, the newly redecorated poolside bar. In homage to Samui’s long history of sea fishing, dating back to its early Sino-Thai merchants, the bar’s new look includes artfully draped fishing nets and traditional oars adorning the walls. Pool Bar provides a shady haven for a cool drink or tasty sundowner with views of the ocean.

Additional perks include late check-out until 4.00 pm, 20% savings on food, drink and spa treatments, free accommodation and meals for kids under 12 and the freedom to change the booking date up to 24 hours prior to arrival.
