The Anantara experience was born in 2001 with its first luxury property in Thailands historic seaside retreat of Hua Hin. From that day forward, the brand expanded throughout the world to cosmopolitan cities, lush islands, desert sands, heritage destinations, uncharted beaches and contemporary resort destinations. 

Today, Anantara's portfolio spans from Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Maldives, Mozambique, Oman, Portugal, Qatar, Sri Lanka, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, Vietnam and Zambia.

The brand's thoughtfully designed luxury hotels and resorts provide windows into the genuine modern character of each destination. Inside and outside each property, guests can engage with the places, people and stories that make the destination like nowhere else in the world.
