We stayed in the third row (800thb a night) and the bungalow was just amazing. Beautifully made out of bamboo and wood. Bathroom is seperated from sleeping room by a selfmade shell curtain. The bed was huge and very compfy and the mosquito net was needed, due to no glass windows but that was nice as we could hear the... More

This place we found through Lanta River Sand Resort and although the criticism about the friendlyness of the owners were not good, we decided to go there and it was no disappointment at all.The place, we stayed at a Lanta River Sand Resort was really nice and "clean" what you can expect from an "environmental friendly" home. Means you can... More

This was meant to be the relaxing part of our trip but failed to meet our expectations in so many ways. We had paid way over the worth of the room for a beach front hut and when we arrived were given a room with the view of next door resorts massage room with the next door resort music playing...

Great atmosphere and beach. Quiet location. If you have a problem sleeping in an open bungalow, then do not book here. Nice, big comfortable beds with mosquito nets, cold water bathrooms and inviting porches with 2 hammocs and 2 big comfy chairs. Would definitely recommend this place, the staff were lovely and very accommodating.

I had such high hopes for these ideally positioned beach huts. Another review pointed out that guests will have the pleasure of rats, mice and even snakes in your room. This may be the case, personally I didn't see any, my problem was more of a human one, or more specifically a terrifying, dollar- hungry pair of them, both female,... More

We loved staying at River Sand. The ladies that run the place are absolute characters. The hotel is in a great location - right on the beach. It is located in the south-western end of the island on a beach called Klong Toab - which is quiet and away from the hustle and bustle of the northern end of the... More

We did not stay at this place, but at the Rawi Warin resort 300 m to the North. However, we had lunch 3 times at River Sands and all three times were great. Fantastic location, not crowded, great good (& fantastic lemon shakes), and very nice and friendly staff speaking great English. Definitely worth a visit!

We stayed at lanta riversand for christmas and we enjoyed our stay. The resort could be a paradise if it would be kept better. Our boungalow was nice although it was one of the last ones without renovation. But the area around was a mess and kind of a dumping ground for old construction material. The beach is nice but...

We loved riversand. The bungalows were quaint and lovely to stay in. The patio restaurant overlooking the ocean brought guests from other accommodations. The staff were funny and engaging they do speak fluent English contrary to a previous comment. The atmosphere was relaxing and the beach is wonderful. You are staying in thatched huts with bamboo floors so you have... More
