We stayed 3 nights at anantaya resort at the end of january as a family with our two kids (1 & 3 yo) and had a really nice time. The check in process was easy and smooth, the receptionist was very attentive to our needs. We stayed at a superior room and it was big enough for us, they even provided us with a babycot. The pool is big, there’s even a kids’ pool, and we saw some rooms have direct access to the pool. The staff is very helpful, friendly and always attentive to your needs. The food is outstanding, you have the option to sit inside or outside overlooking a pond with fish and the ocean. Its beautiful. The morning breakfast buffet stood out for us as they also have halal options available. The resort is away from the city very nice if you want to take time off to relax. There’s nothing much around however you can take a car or tuktuk to explore the city as it’s not too far. Unfortunately we couldn’t enjoy the sea as much our first day because the waves were too rough however the rest of the days it was better. Overall highly recommend this resort.

Amazing 10 days at Anantaya Resort & Spa
After our first 5 nights at the Anantaya Resort & Spa we were so satisfied with all, that we extended our stay for 4 nights more. The resort is just amazing. The rooms are spotless clean, huge and great equipped. We had a great view to the sea and the pool. The pool is the biggest one we've ever seen - wow! Also the beach is like the caribbean sea or the maldives. The food (we had breakfast and dinner) was delicious every day and the staff in the whole Resort (especially the waiters) were every time so friendly and courteous. Because we were sometimes the only guests (due the ongoing political situation in the country) we had the possibility to choose our own set-menu directly by the chef-cook and it was even so delicious! Also the management of the resort is very kind and fulfills every wish. The price/ performance ratio is just perfect. We enjoyed every minute at Anantaya Resort & Spa and can highly recommend it! Thanks for the great time - we hope to come back again!!! Christa & Stefan, Switzerland

Relaxing hotel with wonderful staff
We had a very enjoyable time while staying here and were warmly greeted by friendly staff from the moment we arrived. The rooms were very clean and furnished to a high standard, and if any issue came up the maintenance team resolved it quickly. Breakfast and dinner buffets were enjoyable, with a good selection available every day. The restaurant and kitchen is ran by a hardworking team of managers, waiters and chefs who will go out of there way to help (even if like us you arrive to dinner 10 minutes before the retainer closes - thank you!). We also had some great cocktails at the bar. The private beach is beautiful and the swimming pool was great too. The housekeeping washing and ironing service was quick and to an excellent standard. The room was quiet at night and we slept well. I might suggest that guests research local tour operators if looking to explore, book airport transfers, or book leisure activities as the hotel prices were significantly more expensive. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Pasikuda, and look forward to returning again!

The staff was really friendly and fixed every issue we had. Proximity to the beach is excellent and the pool was wonderful. If you want a sea front room, the I suggest you take rooms on the ground floor.

We stayed for 3 nights and had an excellent stay. The staff from check in up to the lifeguards were all friendly and provided excellent service. The food was plentiful and fresh and the staff were extremely helpful. The rooms were spotless. The gardens were well manicured and well laid out, the pool was great. Great stretch of beach although it was windy and a bit rough. My son loved that the staff off duty joined in to play volleyball every evening. Overall a great stay and would highly recommend this property for relaxed holiday. Only recommendation is if the beach could be cleaned up daily of all the plastic that gets washed ashore.
