Having had a bad night staying locally my friend and I were desperate to move, we stumbled upon this place by chance. The bungalows are right on the beach, clean modern and spacious, we were surprised by the excellent quality of the finish inside.Mr and Mrs Pong are warm and welcoming, they helped us organise an island tour and a...

I should thank owners of this small family held hotel for their hospitality and nice food they cooked for us for breakfast. The rooms are simple, but nice and clean. We do not like use air conditioning at night and asked for fan, that was promptly provided for us. If you choose to stay at on of the front line... More

My boyfriend and I have been traveling around Thailand and booking hotels in advance. We decided to find a hotel in Ko Lanta when we arrived as the hotels online didn't seem to fit exactly what we were looking for. This is a family run hotel and as we arrived at reception we did not know what to expect because... More

AMAZING! We can't wait to come back! We could not be happier with our choice to stay here it is located beach front on one of the nicest beaches in Ko Lanta (Klong Nin Beach). We stayed in room B1 which has the bed facing the ocean which was the best way to wake up - all the rooms face... More

The situation of this hotel is wonderful, just on the waterfront: the beach is peaceful and so beautiful at the sunset! There are many restaurants and bars nearby and everything you need to have an easy life. The staff was very friendly and we appreciated Mr Pong coming to get us at the pier. The room was spacious, clean and... More

My partner and I just spent 7 days here. It was such a lovely quiet place to stay yet it's in a great location surrounded by just enough restaurants and bars to keep you busy. Its far enough away from the busier north end of Koh Lanta yet close enough to the secluded beaches and parks etc. The owners, Mr... More

The Baan Rim Lay in my and my wife's opinion is by far the best hotel on the best island in Thailand. We booked a Deluxe beachfront room and didn't want to leave. Open the door and there's the beach with our own reserved loungers. The sunset was brilliant and beautiful each evening. Great restaurants and amenities were within an... More

First some background this is not a five star resort - it comprises 7 bungalows beachside. No pool, restaurant, concierge, gym, etc. Owners speak limited English. There are two categories of room - deluxe rooms are the 3 bigger rooms and the superior/standard rooms are more cosy. It's located towards the South of the island so relatively far from the... More

This hotel was a great find. It only had 10 rooms and no reception or bar but the location overlooking the beach was to die for. The best rooms were the deluxe rooms which were large and finished to a high standard and very clean. The balcony area overlooked the beach and Mr Pong the owner served your breakfast there... More
