After two weeks travelling around Thailand, we had chosen Ko Lanta as the place to rest. We chose the LaLaanta resort since we had read in a popular travellers' guide that it was the best place in the island. We also checked this website and we found that the opinions were in general very good. That is why I say... More

If you're after a 5 star anal enema with lots of subservient factotems then best not to even consider LaLaanta...or even Lanta for that matter. No...not even the island's so called "premier" resort (Pimmelkopf....sorry "Pimalai") is up to true international servant abuse. Similarly, if you are Swedish and have several spoilt brats with you, forget LaLaanta and stay with the... More

We have stayed here as a family (of 6) on three occasions. In 2011,12 and 13. The only reason we are not staying in 2014 is that we are going back to Canada to retrace our honeymoon for our 25th anniversary. All of the staff are wonderful - no exceptions. Chico always greets us like old friends and makes us... More

This place is phenomenal. Absolutely 100% amazing. Stayed for four days, and we regretted planning such a short stay as we were leaving. The staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating. The food was surprisingly good. We felt like we were staying with friends the whole time because they memorized our names and preferences and were so attentive and helpful. The... More

My husband and I stayed for 8 nights at the incredible Lalaanta Hideaway resort in March for our honeymoon. It was an absolutely perfect stay - I went in with high standards after getting told good things by a close friend, but all expectations were exceeded! As a honeymooners treat they gave us the beachfront room - and beautiful cocktails... More

Second time at LaLaanta and with two small children in tow, we knew that this time would be different. And for sure, our holiday was different but LaLaanta was still fantastic. We were greated by Chico when we arrived with a hug and this really set the tone for our holiday. It felt like coming to visit friends rather than... More

3 years later we came back and found that paradise still exists on the southernmost part of Koh Lanta. Much of the staff is still the same and equally happy as they were three years ago (a good sign that LaLaanta is a great place to work). This is nothing like a big 5 star resort, everything is better and... More

This was my first visit to Thailand and I was looking for a relaxed and easy-going atmosphere as it was my only holiday last year. And yes, LaLaanta was exactly what I was looking for. It's a piece of paradise on earth. The staff is nice, courteous and helpful. They don't speak english that well, but good enough to make... More

Seriously chilled out resort on the southern tip of this laid-back island, booked as the chill stop in an Andaman Sky holiday which also took in Ao Nang (busy but not crazy) and Phuket (we didn’t like this place much). Lanta was great, I’d go back again and stay at this resort in a flash if I could, . Things... More

Stayed in off season so most swimming done in the infinity pool, but still a few days at the beach. Service, food and accommodation are some of the best in my world travels. Great for couples who just need some R&R from the busy world. Definitely recommend LaLaanta Hideaway and cant wait to head back there soon.
