The Anantara Experience was born in 2001, with the launch of the first Anantara Resort in Thailand's historic seaside resort enclave of Hua Hin. Since then, it has brought the Anantara Experience to Thailand's far northern Golden Triangle region, with the unique and world-renowned Anantara Elephant Camp experience, and to the island of Samui, offering an immersion in the rich culture of southern Thailand.
In 2006, the Anantara Experience went global, with the launch of Anantara Maldives, providing guests with the opportunity to live the fantasy of a truly remote desert island getaway. It further expanded its presence to destinations across Asia and the Middle East, including Vietnam, Bali, Phuket and Abu Dhabi.
