Anantara

PROFILE & PHILOSOPHY

logoFifteen years ago Anantara opened its doors in the royal seaside retreat of Hua Hin on the Gulf of Thailand. Since then the Anantara collection has grown into 35 luxury hotels in city, island and desert settings across Asia, the Middle East, the Indian Ocean and Africa. We are proud to have hosted some of your life’s most spectacular moments.

Our team shares your belief that life is a journey, and we take joy in helping you find inspiration in the authentic luxuries of each destination. Toast to romance. Celebrate together. Explore new horizons of experience. From the crystal waters of the Maldives to Dubai’s iconic islands, from the stone marvels of Angkor to the cliffs of Bali, from the cultural charms of Vietnam to African adventures, from the golden sands of Sri Lanka’s southern shore to the romance of Arabian sand dunes, Anantara invites you to get up close and personal with the places, people and stories that make each destination extraordinary. Begin your next unforgettable journey.

ANANTARA TODAY

Anantara has 3 brand pillars as below:
– Indigenous
We deliver the authentic, the original, the real deal –inside-out. We immerse ourselves and our guests in the locale to provide distinctive and locally-infused experiences. The charm of hidden treasures – a quirky street- side cafe with the best espresso, or the blissful seclusion of an unspoiled

– Expertise
Since 2001 we have used our local expertise to revive a sense of true excitement for modern luxury travellers. Today, we combine this energy with world-class luxury standards to create experiences for guests who look for the new and shun the beaten track.

– Authentic Luxury
We believe that modern luxury shouldn’t be cookie cutter or pretentious. Our approach has and always will be more organic, intuitive, accessible and non-formulaic. Premium touches with an energetic local spice, not faceless glamour. Luxury and service that feel natural and at ease with our surroundings, never stuffy.
