Was a little wary having read some of the previous reviews, but actually this was ok for the price. We had two rooms for our family. In fairness no one used the private pools as they were quite small although clean enough, and there was more sun on the main pool. We used it as a base but spent most... More

Located a short Tuk Tuk ride away from the ferry and main town. Tucked away from any noise and crowds yet a sort distance to the beach and Saladan town. We got a great deal, under half price and were amazed at the quality and size of the room that we got, a deluxe room. The staff, pool area and... More

I was staying alone for a few nights in January and a little nervous about being alone. However, the staff at Pilanta went above and beyond to make sure that I felt totally safe and happy during my stay. The hotel was clean and beautiful, but it is the staff that really makes this a special place. Every staff member... More

Koh Lanta has miles of beaches, which is why all the best hotels have beachfronts to die for. Pilanta Spa Resort is as if someone came late, with money, bought up a last remaining plot, not on a beach, and built as many rooms as they could. The spa idea is not bad, but it clearly doesn't operate as a... More

This hotel is really nice. We had a great room with big bathtub and our own pool. The location is walking distance to the beach, and 5 min drive to the center. They have a nice breakfast with lots of options. There is also a pool bar serving both drinks and meals. The people working here are really nice, helpful... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night in the middle of our honeymoon because we needed to be near Saladan after a day of diving. We chose the Pilanta after searching for a cheap resort -- it was US$90 after fees on Agoda, and given that price, it wasn't too bad. However, it's a shabby place. The staff... More

Lovely huge rooms, each with a little balcony and a little sitting room. We couldn't get the jacuzzi bath to work but didn't really bother us as the shower was good. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and a few spoke pretty good English- more than I expect in a foreign country. The location is a bit isolated... More

Pilanta Spa hotel is a great choice for families with small kids as the pool area is great and the service level is high. The rooms are modern and elegantly furbished. The location could be better as it's located a couple of kilometers from the beach but a pickup service is offered by the hotel.

This hotel is located near Saladan and is not very far from the beach. We stayed here during new years at high season however this hotel was overpriced and does not deserve the 4 star rating it gives itself. Pool is not inviting, the private pool in our room had stale water which smelled rotten for days. The Wi-Fi was... More
