There are many beach resorts on the island of Koh Samui and one of the finest and most luxurious is Anantara Bophut. It’s located midway along a particularly tranquil and picturesque stretch of beach on the island’s northern coast and is one of several properties in the Anantara chain, whose hotels and resorts are known for their excellent facilities, warm hospitality and high quality of accommodation. This luxury beachside resort has a wealth of activities for guests of all tastes and ages, not to mention beautifully landscaped gardens to explore.
Altogether there are 106 rooms at the resort and they’re split up into eight different categories, ranging from rooms with garden views, to beachfront suites that come with their own pool. All rooms and suites come with many convenient amenities such as tea and coffee making facilities, a minibar, an LCD TV, air conditioning and a beach bag. The accommodation is designed to let in copious amounts of natural light and all quarters boast pristine and modern Thai decor.
There are several dining venues at the resort. ‘High Tide’ offers a range of Thai cuisine for breakfast and dinner, with themed nights livening things up and both indoor and outdoor dining available. Australian cuisine is on the menu for lunch and dinner at ‘Full Moon’, which overlooks the infinity pool. ‘Ocean’s Edge’ serves cocktails by the sea, while ‘Eclipse Bar’ offers drinks and a lighter, more casual menu in a particularly relaxed setting. Private beachside dining can also be arranged.
There’s a great deal to do in and around the resort. For those looking to explore the wider area, there’s a very good selection of history excursions, trips to national parks, jungle expeditions and visits to local temples. Those wanting to stay on-site can make use of the many facilities, which include a fitness centre, library, full-service spa, infinity pool and tennis court. Yoga tuition, cocktail mixing, Thai boxing and fruit carving are also available, along with plenty of exciting water sports.
Children of all ages are welcome. Extra beds are available on request, although note that each type of room can only accommodate a maximum of one child. The Baan Ling Noi Children’s Club (Baan Ling Noi translates as ‘Little Monkey’) offers a broad range of age-appropriate activities for youngsters from 9am to 5pm every day of the week. Some of these include Thai origami, pizza making, towel animal folding, trampolining and sandcastle making. Activities are available for children between the ages of 4 and 10; those under the age of 4 can take part, so long as they have an adult or babysitter present with them.

Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
Kind regards, Carol

It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
Kind regards, John

Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
