Anantara Resort Chiang Rai Thailand

by Ronario about Anantara Resort Chiang Rai

The refreshing chill of a Northern Thai sunrise shrouded in mountain mist. The rush of a longboat ride up the Mekong to Laos. The exhilaration of riding an elephant through bamboo jungle along the border of Burma. Unforgettable.

Hua Hin Hotels

by sarahreynold about Anantara and Marriott resorts

Hua Hin hotels include many top chains. The Anantara resort hotel and Marriott resort hotel are both owned by the Royal Gardens Group. They have both new health spas that are superb. The Marriott hotel in Hua Hin is closer to town than the Anantara. If you want some relaxing spa treatments these both have excellent reputations. Massage and spa treatments in a natural Thai setting. Both hotels are directly on the beach at Hua Hin. The twin hotels have Thai style design that is relaxing and comfortable. Treat yourself.

Amazing Mekong River Trip

by glasstech

early Monday morning on June 26th, 2006 we transfered from our stay at the Anantara resort to Chiang Khong on the Thai/Laos border. Here we crossed the Mekong river in a local shuttle boat. Once in Laos we met up with our local guide from Khiri Travel - Cham-Poo, who was an awesome and very knowledgable young man. Highly recommended. Once situated with our visas we headed off for our long boat which would take us to Pakbeng and on to Luang Prabang.

We had been unsure what to expect with the slow boat and were very pleasantly surprised. We had a traditional slow boat to our selves. Well, Ok, there was the captain, his boat boy, the lady that owned the boat with her children and a couple of friends. The boat could have held 60 easily. What a deal and what a great time of year to travel. Our journey along the Mekong was so relaxing. Comfy seats, great service, great views. It was brilliant and a part of our trip that I was most apprehensive about, but did not need to be. At the end of our first day on the river we stopped at Pakbeng Lodge - Pakbeng. The exterior was fancy, the people friendly, the food and the lao-lao were most acceptable. The rooms were very basic, but the nights rest was great.

Back on the river the next day we had a short trip to Luang Prabang. Along the way we stopped at the Pak Ou caves, a site of more tan 3,000 Buddha images. After that we visited a local village of Ban Sang hai where they produce their local whiskey. I gues we had rented the boat for ourselves? other boats passing by were most jealous. perhaps that was the package we bought. Very worth while. See photos.

A treasure to experience and enjoy in its rustic elegance

Beautiful hotel with excellent service!
Staying at the Anantara Golden Triangle is being in another - very exotic and pleasant - world. The hotel in itself reminded us of some kind of temple or fort. It was luxsurious, yet rustic. The service was fantastic and the manager and his staff were very interested in their guest´s well being. The rooms were very nice, the garden and surroundings beautiful. The hotel sponsores an elephant project and keeps its own elephants in a nice camp where guests can take elephant trekking tours. The pool is beautiful; in the evenings musicians play their music sitting on a stool in the pool = unforgettable. The tours provided by the hotel are top class; you will get guides who are superb! (Don´t miss going to Burma & Laos in one day!) We did all this with two young children who loved it! One of the kids also had a ride on a water buffalo one morning. A stay at this hotel is personal, classy, serene, free of the usual tourist touch and very recommendable!

We will be back...this next time with the kids!

We just returned from a 2 1/2 week trip thru Thailand,
starting with a beautiful week in Phuket...we then drove with our guide from Chiang Mai through the hills to Anantara, where we were thrilled with the beautiful setting, views, and wonderful food!! We were out most of the day, but loved coming back for a wonderful dinner and ambiance, just relaxing by the beautiful pool, a great end to a busy day. The staff was friendly, over the top!! We had a suite that tops the Four Seasons....Three nights, not enough..We'll be back, the elephants are calling!! It was one of the highlights of our trip! Thanks so much...

Beautiful

by A TripAdvisor Member

We stayed here for 4 days as part of our honeymoon, it wasn't long enough. Beautiful & rustic - such a special hotel. There is such a wide variety of activities & trips you could spend weeks here. Everything about the place just makes you relax & forget all your troubles. Take an elephant trek or why not try your hand at Thai Cooking. 2 good restaurants and not far from the local village if you want to try something different. The only fault I thought the hotel had was that it didn't have a good shop to provide some of the basic necessities. We ran out of sun lotion and they couldn't help us (there was none in the village either!).

So in summary. Do not miss this place but bring sun lotion!

Superb

by TripAdvisor Member sheiling

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights as part of a four stop tour of Thailand for our honeymoon. All the hotels we stayed in were excellent, but this clearly stood out as the best - probably the best hotel we've ever stayed in. My only frustration is that we just didn't have time to take advantage of everything on offer - I'd have loved to do the elephant mahout training, and my wife wanted to do the cookery course, but there just wasn't time.

Everything about the hotel was superb - room, pool, restaurant, service etc were all beautiful, but what really sticks in the memory are the grounds. It was wonderful just to wander - fantastic variety with stunning plants and trees, and beautiful views - and of course the odd elephant.

If you're thinking of staying here then do - but make sure you give yourself enough time to really appreciate it.

A MUST!!!

by TripAdvisor Member gatorgirl123

JUST AMAZING.... I think from the other views you get the idea. This hotel will go down as a favorite of all times. The location is great.....how many times can you wake up and see three countries out your window! The people are great...and the elephants are well....cute!

You can go down to feed the elephants anytime you want (for free) just to say hi and give them some food... I do recommend going for a ride also! It was amazing!

Another must is the three country tour. We did it part of our package and just found Burhma amazing. You cross the border on foot with a guide and we were just amazed in the difference in the two countries. Good shopping there too!!! Make sure you bring enough Thai Baht with you! We wish we got more there it was so good!

anantara resort in hua hin,any reviews please!

by jaguar1964

can anyone tell me what anantara resort in hua hin is like also is it walking distance to town centre or taxi ride,if so how much?
first time visitors to thailand.

Re: anantara resort in hua hin,any reviews please!

by sarahreynold

The Anantara Resort is built very Thai in style, it has a lovely Mandara Spa. It is on the beach. It is too far to walk to town. Local tuk-tuks and taxis charge about 100 Baht (US 2.50) for the journey but I belive the Anantara also runs a frequent shuttle to and from town. There is not much around the Anantara, it takes about 5-7 minutes by road into town. In Hua Hin town there are markets, restaurants and bars, you can Elephant ride and take trips to the National Park, waterfalls etc. If you want any more specifics just ask, I go to Hua hin from Bangkok for the weekend quite often.

Forgot to mention it has an excellent reputation!

Hi
I am staying at the Anatara in June, i booked it after a lot of research. I work as a travel agent so have access to a lot of stuff that the public doesnt. It is described in the Gazetteer (The travel trade truth bible) as one of the most romantic and luxurious in asia.
If you want to get a feel for Hau Hin try this web site.
http://www.huahinafterdark.com and check out there forum. I believe that Anatara do a free shuttle to the town centre. Also you might want to have a look at the hotels own web site www.anatara.com
When are you traveling??? If it is before i go, then let me know what you thought of it.

Good Location for Complete Relaxation?

by saracen

Hi,

Can anyone recommend in Thailand a really relaxing break, maybe a spa type resort, preferably not surrounded by chaos but still reasonably close to a reasonably lively town - oh, and erring on the side of affordable luxury...?

Many thanks,
ndb.

RE: Good Location for Complete Relaxation?

by prikje

Hi ,


maybe Felix river Kwai hotel in Kanchanaburi is a idea.
http://www.felixhotels.com/riverkwai/
A 5 star hotel with very nice prices ;))
Its a 2 hours (first class) busdrive from Bangkok.

Nearby:
You can enjoy Thailands most beautiful national park : Erawan national park.
Off course also the bridge over the river Kwai and its attributes ...
The town nearby has a "boulevard" with lots of nice cafe's and restaurants with better food and prices than you'll find in bangkok.

enjoy your stay

Patrick

Hua Hin would seem to fit the bill. We are staying at the anantara resortr in a couple of weeks which just outside the town. have a look at www.anantara.com

RE: RE: Good Location for Complete Relaxation?

by saracen

Thanks guys - both suggestions are in parts of Thailand I have never visited before so I will definately check them out.

All the best,

Hi Randy,

That sounds like just the sort of place I am after - can you tell me the name of it please?

Cheers.

plea for help

by smiffy11family

hello, well my brain is in over-drive now trying to get the details right for this tour . I have more or less decided on 4 nights at Landmark hotel Bangkok, nice and central?, then fly to chaing Mai sheraton for 2 nights, then anantara in golden triangle for 5 nights prior to koh samui for 8. Now here is my dilemma, whether to pre book a tour that includes the trips chaing mai and golden circle or whether to just book the accomodation and arrange our tours when we get there. I am tempted by the latter as we have done this in Malaysia where you can hire a taxi for the day. How easy is it to do this from these resorts? Please help me decide, many thanks,

RE: plea for help

by globerover

It is definitively better to book such tours when you are there. You will always find professional tour agencies, or, much more convenient, if you are prepared to haggle with a taxi driver you can arrange your very personal tour.

Hiring a taxi for the day is a very common way for tourists to view the area, so all taxi drivers are prepared to do it.

RE: plea for help

by chiabh

hi lorraine...

just hire a car/van for the day when you are there... when i was in chiangmai last january, i just hire a car including driver for the day and it cost about 1000 bahts... no hassle, you just tell him where you want to go... i just show him photos of places that i wanted to visit...

regards.chia

RE: RE: plea for help

by smiffy11family

oh excellant for that, tell me in your experience then ,is it easy to visit the hill people this way or do the organised tours have special arrangements do you think? Thanks again,

RE: RE: plea for help

by chiabh

hi lorraine...

it would be better to join a tour if you want to visit the hill tribes and villages... and there are many inexpensive tours from chiangmai to these areas... chiangmai is quite central in this respect and transport facilities are good and comparatively cheap... if you have more than 2 persons, it would be cheaper and more flexible to hire a car with driver from a travel agent who can customise the tours (including visiting tribe villages) for you...

regards.chia
