Exotic Nature and Wildlife

Phuket has many wonderful exotic attractions for you and your family to enjoy together. Cruise through the winding jungle trails on the back of an elephant, where you will have a one of a kind opportunity to take in the natural splendour of the island including stunning views, exotic birds, and towering waterfalls.

Learn about the island and one of its native inhabitants, the gibbon, by visiting the Gibbon Conservation Centre, located in close proximity to the Bang Pae waterfall. This facility, which reintroduces these cheerful creatures back into the wild, will educate you on their progressive conservation techniques, and allow you to watch these agile creatures interacting in a natural environment.

Island Excursions

The south of Thailand is famously dotted with some of the most verdant and stunning islands in the world. Enjoy guided day trips to some of the best that Phuket has to offer.

Koh Phi Phi is an idyllic location for snorkelling and diving, featuring colourful active coral reefs and a variety of exotic sea life. In addition, the island is perfect for trying your hand at rock climbing and kayaking, or simply admiring the unique limestone rock formations from the pristine beach.

Also available, are tours of the exquisite Similan Islands. These majestic islands offer stunning views that are unique to this part of the globe. Swim with schools of fish and exotic sea creatures while snorkelling through one of the most preserved coral reefs in the world.

Something for Everyone

The perfect vacation has something for everyone to enjoy. Our Fun for All Ages programme does just that. Take advantage of the glistening sea with activities including sailing, wind surfing, and kayaking. Try your hand at traditional batik painting, loosen up with beginner Thai dance lessons, or catch a film from the pool on one of our ‘dive-in’ movie nights.

Spend your afternoon sampling the local street food delicacies in historic Phuket Town, admiring the Sino-Portuguese architecture, or shopping in the bustling market places. Grab a map from the concierge, and explore at your own pace.

Going on vacation doesn't mean taking a break from your personal health. Keep up your exercise routine and maintain your physique in our fully equipped gym. You can also request a personal trainer to guide you through your workout.

We've been staying with Anantara for the past 7 years and this is our second visit to this property and it's another home-run. Apart from a minor hiccup at the airport on arrival the welcome was great. Kids had their names spelled out on their beds with magnetic letters - who I made their way to the fridge. Staff from the kids club were there to welcome the kids back and comment on how much they've grown. Checkin done in the room is always a great touch. The 2 bedroom pool villa is massive and the pool is just perfect to laze by and in. Turtle Village across the road with an English pub showing all the sport, small supermarket and even Swensens ice creamery. Great family holiday .... Anantara you did it again!

We stayed in a 1-bedroom pool villa for 11 nights and cannot rate our experience highly enough. The villas are very spacious and well appointed and, in particular, are peaceful and very private. Breakfast is excellent, even by the high standards usually found in SE Asia. The staff, as a whole, are some of the best we have ever experienced; professional but very friendly. From the housekeepers and restaurant staff to the grounds keepers and front desk staff, they seem to genuinely enjoy their jobs. We would highly recommend this resort and look forward to returning next year! 



Me and my wife spent 4 days here and it was amazing, the people are very friendly and accommodating. the place is so beautiful and relaxing. the room we got was a 2 bedroom suite which was superb. very clean and well maintained.
