There are plenty of activities to choose from, including cookery classes, tennis and badminton, bicycle rides and traditional boat rides around the surrounding area. There is also a kids and teens club, a fitness centre and a 25-metre split level infinity pool with a separate children’s pool. Or for those looking to unwind and relax completely, there is daily yoga and meditation classes, and the iconic Anantara spa which specialises in the signature 2 ½ hour ultimate indulgence treatment.
