After a six-month renovation absence, the Anatara Bophut Koh Samui Resort and Spa now has new and upgraded features. Already known as one of the most luxurious and well-appointed resorts in the serene Fisherman’s Cover area at Bo Phut Beach, the 106-key Anantara Bophut reopens with new and improved room and suite categories, upped to eight from six, including expanding enhancing the popular 80-square-meter Anantara Beachfront Pool Suites with new private 20-square-meter pools.
Other changes across the resort include transforming the Full Moon from an Italian eatery into a restaurant that specializes in local cuisine and chargrilled fusion dishes, and opening up the Eclipse Bar with a more welcoming, pub-like feel. The resort now boasts a brand new hospitality room for guests who arrive before check-in time or have a departing evening flight. Stay refreshed with the suite’s shower facilities and complimentary drinks and snacks while waiting.
Not everything is different at the Anantara Bophut Koh Samui though. The resort is still home to the award-winning Anantara Spa, a 3,100-square-meter space clad in elegant black slate and tranquil bamboo. Enjoy a treatment in one of the six private glass-enclosed pavillions that also have their own alfresco showers and terrazzo bathtubs big enough to fit two people.
