Oaks Hotels & Resorts and Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas are both proudly owned by the Minor Hotel Group Ltd. Because of our unique relationship with Anantara, we are proud to introduce to you, our customers, this exceptional company.
In Sanskrit, the word Anantara means 'without end' and evokes the freedom, movement and harmony that are the spirit of the Anantara Experience.
Each Anantara Resort provides a very different experience which is a unique voyage of discovery and inspiration. The resorts draw on the strength from the rich cultural traditions, historic heritage and natural beauty of its destination.
In 2001 the Anantara Experience was born, when the first Anantara Resort was launched in the historic Thailand seaside resort of Hua Hin. They believed they could bring their guests closer to Thailand’s rich culture and history by surrounding them with the atmosphere of a traditional Thai village.
Each Anantara resort offers guests a range of experiences which will immerse them in the culture of Thailand. Examples may be cooking classes, fruit carving demonstrations, visits to a weekly floating market and instruction in the traditional martial art of Muay Thai.
From its successful beginning, the Anantara Experience has now been taken to Thailand's far northern Golden Triangle region where guests can experience the unique and world-renowned Anantara Elephant Camp. The island of Samui also is an area where guests can become involved and experience the rich culture of southern Thailand.
In 2006, the Anantara Experience went global with the launch of Anantara Maldives. Opening in this stunning part of the world, this resort allows guests the opportunity to live out the fantasy of a truly remote desert island getaway.
Inspired by this success and the wonderful feedback Anantara received from their guests worldwide, Anantara are now proud to be able to bring its unique brand of laid-back luxury, intuitive service and sense of discovery to many more stunning destinations across Asia and the Middle East, including Vietnam, Bali, Phuket and Abu Dhabi.
