Wonderfully relaxing A review of Anantara Si Kao Resort & Spa
We have just returned from spending Christmas and New Year at the Amari Trang and have had a wonderful time! The hotel is extremely quiet and relaxing and the staff cannot do enough to help you. Their English is fairly limited but they always have a smile on their face and if you ask them to do something, once they have understood, then it is done almost immediately for you.
The restaurants are excellent and offer a wide variety of choice and although it is not as cheap as eating out, the quality of the food is much better and there is little to see outside the hotel.
The beach was ok but you can't swim in the sea because it is far too shallow. Get the hotel boat over to Koh Kraden which takes about an hour and there the sea and the beach is beautiful. We hired a boat for the day and they took us to several snorkelling points and then to Koh Kraden for lunch. This is highly recommended and very good value for money.
The spa was also excellent and again very good value for money. On New Year's Day the girls from the spa came to the pool and gave a free message to everyone in order to help them recover from their hangover. This was a lovely touch as well as the cold towels and drinks that they brought you every day.
Be careful of mosquitoes as they are real problem. It is the only hotel that we have been to which provide you with a bottle of mosquito repellant with your drinks!
If you want to relax in peaceful and beautiful surroundings then this is the place for you!
