Bamboo Bay (Ao Mai Pai) is a lovely beach bordering the National Park and there are only three resorts so it gives you a secluded feel. We stayed for a week (longer than planned) and had one of the AC Bungalows at the front. The bungalow was renovated not long ago (the safe was pretty new) so everything was ok... More

We enjoyed our stay in Baan Phu Lae very much. Its one of the most romantic places I've been so far in Thailand. The rainforest is reaching right to the beach and there are only three hotels on this beach so far and beeing there in the green season we sometimes where the only people swimming in the sea or...

This place was our last in Ko Lanta and our favorite. It has been renovated, so don't listen to the old bad reviews. Nice owners, they do speak english and they help us to organize transport to Krabi. Although it is a bit more expensive that other places, it's worth it!

We've stayed at La Laanta Resort but preferred to eat at this place! The smoothies are DELICIOUS!! Full of fresh ingredients like lime, ginger etc. Our favourites: 'Sleeping Beauty' & 'Morning Sunshine'. We also loved the Thai red curry & the fried vegetables with tofu. Good atmosphere, nice background music and friendly staff. From the outside the yellow bungelows seemed... More

Just when I thought Thailand was overtouristed and you could not find paradise anymore here....I found it here at Baan Phue Lae! Perfect location, great spacious room, superb staff, excellent food and very child friendly! I loved it from the moment I arrived. The rooms were clean. It is a little out of the way but there are 3 or... More

We didn't actually stay here, we stayed next door at the very similar bamboo bay resort, but we came here nearly every day to their bar and restaurant. The food was tasty (their breakfast is especially good) and the beers and cocktails were good. But what really makes this a great bar to relax in are the staff. They're very... More

Located on the remotest beach on Koh Lanta the hotel has the most scenic surroundings on the island. There is only one other hotel on the beach, which also means very few tourists in sight. Although the hotel is at the rocky part of the beach, there is a sandy shore in a hundred meters distance. The hotel has a... More

Where do I start with this review....... From the moment we rounded the corner and saw the bay we were in love. This place is super relaxed, friendly, beautiful and is run by the best staff we found in Thailand. We booked it because of the brilliant reviews we read and we were not wrong to do so. My only...
