I wouldn't stay here again. The rooms were a bit dark and old, felt a little dirty, and had a musky smell. The plunge pools are grown over by trees with no sun, and this back garden\plunge pool area isn't a very inviting place to spend time. The rooms had quite a few mosquitos. The power went out and the... More

Not on the beach and a little over built but worth the price. Nice pool and responsive staff. Helpful and friendly front desk and bar help. A short walk to watch sunset on the beach and easy to get to by tuk-tuk or motorbike. Showers were a bit cool and the spa tub was impossible to fill Private pool was... More

Hotel of middleclass, rooms where nice, but need some cleaning. Staff was very nice and help you very good. Breakfast not so special, but there was a very good restaurant in front of the hotel. Only open for dinner. The hotel is 5 min. with scooter to the centrum. A lot of shops, bars, restaurants and markets. The hotel is... More

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
