Hotel's Favourite
Lovely facilities and friendly service. Loved the beach area, the water is so clear, we saw many fish. We thoroughly enjoyed having a villa with the pool. Just what we needed during this time. Beautiful sunrise and sunsets. Thanks for a fantastic stay. Thanks to Pravin for going out of his way to help us.

My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary on Banana Island - treating ourselves to the Spa package. From the moment of enquiring and making the booking, the staff of the resort were outstanding in service. We arrived on a Sunday and had the pleasure of having the island all to ourselves. Nic met us as we disembarked from the comfortable ferry ride. He was such a star enlightening us to all the activities on the island. We arrived on a day that the breakfast restaurant opened post covid restrictions. And Wow what a treat we got!! Sumira, the restaurant hostess provided such lovely special attention for our anniversary. All the staff were super pleasant and professional. The food was delicious and servings were enormous. We opted for the a la carte menu as the food voucher was sufficient to cover both our meals and drinks - and it was more than what was expected for breakfast. The golf cart then took us to the Q Lounge pool where we enjoyed the blissfully cool pool and photo sessions on to the beach that we had all to ourselves. The atmosphere and music and just that relaxed feeling was simply just perfect. After checking out the rest of the resort which was beautiful and so well kept... we proceeded to what must have been one of the best massages my husband and I have ever had. Meriem organised the timing perfectly, the spa was so cosy but our massage therapists deserves the highest recommendations!!! Estha and Sonum really did an outstanding job undoing the stress knotted in our bodies. Both hubby and I decided that we will definitely be back to have massages done by these two ladies. Thank you so much for an absolutely amazing spa treatment. Banana Island lives up to it's 5* accolade for outstanding service, professional and pleasant staff, amazing food and an absolutely blissful relaxing resort experience. Ps.. thanks to the pool guy who let us slide down the kid's water slides :)

‪I would like to commend Ms. Krystel and Ms. Maria from Guest Relations of Banana Island Anantara Hotel. I was considering an island getaway treat for my wife to surprise her on reaching a milestone in her life. So when I came across these 2 staffs, Ms. Krystel & Ms. Maria; they offered me the best view for our room and I inquired if there is a room setup for my surprise. Then they sent me the Special Occasion catalog. They assisted me in making the best choice of setup for my wife’s birthday. I asked them to make birthday greetings on the bed and also if they can give bouquet to my wife during our check in process as one of my surprises to her. During our check in at the Al Shyoukh Terminal, my wife got a surprise bouquet of flowers and she was very happy. When we entered our room, we were both amazed with the set up. The petals on the bed and bathtub was really beautiful as well as the view from our room. We were both thrilled by the complimentary dates and most specially the birthday cake and customized greetings on top. Honestly, I have high expectations about the room arrangements for surprising my wife because I really want everything to be smooth and perfect. And they didn’t fail in doing so but rather have exceeded my expectations. My wife was really surprised and happy. I would like to express how grateful I am to both Ms. Krystel & Ms. Maria for diligently assisting me. The room setup surprise in Banana island is a recommendable one!‬ ‪Moreover, I would like to commend Ms. Rose from Room Service. Every time we call the Room service she always answered quickly. When we spoke to Rose, she enlightened us about the setup and also the breakfast menu. Rose recommended us the best options for breakfast. She was very informative and delightful staff. She knows her job very well & we can really feel how she loves doing it. The food was served very appetizingly and instagrammable. As well as the taste is as delicious as it looks. They had come up with a great idea to have breakfast in bed for our own safety due to pandemic reasons and & we enjoyed the good quality of their food from Room Service. Our overall experience for breakfast in bed is a unique and remarkable one.‬ Kudos to all the wonderful staffs of Banana Island for making our stay a great experience! Keep up the excellent service!
