The property itself is quite nice. It is fairly large, has a nice beach location and appears to be towards the end of a major facelift. The bungalows appear very nice from the outside, however ours was the family bungalow closest to the ocean, and the inside seemed very outdated. We were there at the end of the high season,... More

The best thing with the resort is it's location, right on Klong Dao Beach. The service is very efficient, but not friendly. The staff is doing what they supoose to do and nothing more and without the smile on their face that we are used to see in Thailand. We ate at the restaurant the first night when we come... More

The resort is right on the beach and a great escape from the usual West Coast craziness of Thailand. The beach is basically empty with soft white sand and stretches for days. The resort is quite family orientated but for 3 young lads looking to relax a bit after many nights of Thailand partying it was ideal. Also one of... More

Our family (2 adults & 2 kids: 4 & 12 yo) has spent 5 nights in this hotel in January 2014. Location is very good, just on the Klong Dao fantastic beach, in only 1,5 km from Saladan city. Our room was family bungalow, not luxury at all, but actually with all needed equipment. Very simple room... Staff is friendly... More

The reviews of this place are pretty spot on. It is certainly not the most attractive resort on this particular stretch of beach but it is functional and ideal for families with small children. There are two swimming pools - one near the beach front where most of the family activity was focused and another at the back of the... More

This was our 5th visit to DR Lanta Bay Resort so for sure we like it. We stayed in a double bungalow and find them really comfortable, quiet and clean. They are functional rather than luxurious but at this price that is good value for money. The staff were friendlier this year and the service good. The resort is right... More

Very nice place to stay with the family. We where lucky to get one of the large family bungalows at the fron of the resort so we had both sea and pool view. The staff is helpful and very kind as well as the kitchen being very good. I would highly recommend DR Lanta to anyone going to Thailand and... More
