We had originally booked our stay for 4 nights and had planned to head up to the Krabi area for 3 more nights before heading to Bangkok, but once we got here we developed a little crush on Lanta and knew we had to stay here instead. Of course Mr. Pong is fully booked so we had to find somewhere... More

Exceptional service and a beautiful and extremely convenient location! We spent 10 days here and loved it. Tons of cool beach restaurants nearby (don't bother wearing shoes!), 7eleven round the corner, massage places etc. However, its very quiet and at night we just heard the waves apart from the occasional music from a distance and the odd tuktuk passing by...

Baan Rim Lay is located at Klong Nin Beach. Very chilling atmosphere not to much crowded and absolutely worth to visit. Upon arrival we got a excellent hospitality. Family Pong make it feel like you're visiting friends instead of paying for a Accomodation. The rooms are very clean and housekeeping is doing a excellent job. Please be aware that basic... More

We stayed in b2 which is the deluxe and it was a lovely room, great size and is cleaned to a high standard daily. You choose your breakfast the night before and mr pong serves it to you on your private terrace at your chosen time. Mr and mrs pong are so friendly and helpful we booked trips through them... More

I visited Baan Rim Lay in Nov 2013. Imagine waking up in your apartment and with your eyes still partially closed walking down to a beach just few steps, having a quick swim in the sea and some breakfast. Without crowds(an I mean it, I had an impression that there is about 5 persons per 100 meters of the beach),... More

I initially booked this guest house but stupidly made the decision to cancel and stay at Baan Rabieng. Even though I didn't stay here one of my friends did. The location is stunning, right on the beach, with private sunbeds and umbrellas - which you will need in the heat of the day. You get the best views of the... More

Baan Rim Lay is right on Klong Nin Beach. When you wake up in the morning you walk out of your door and onto your terrace where your breakfast is served. Then you go down your steps and wander onto your bit of beach where you will find your own sun beds. At the end of the day you watch... More

We stayed at Baan Rim Lay for a week while enjoying the island of Koh Lanta. The location is amazing, literally 9 steps from the beach. Our terrace faced the beach and we enjoyed beautiful sunsets nightly. The beach at Rim Lay is gorgeous, white sand, and very uncrowded. Beach chairs and towels are provided, and you can just relax.... More

We stayed in this hotel in mid March for 4 nights. Really beautiful room with spacious and clean bathroom just on the beach. We enjoyed every evening beautiful sunset from our terrace. It takes around 15-20min from Saladan by taxi, a little longer by tuk-tuk. Owners is very nice and friendly. We really enjoyed our breakfast, what is served on... More

Hi, I deliberated on whether to write a review on this place because my wife and I want it all for ourselves! Baan Rim Lay is a very small (five room) boutique no frills hotel. The managers are the owners, having built the place over the past five years. It is centrally located on the beach amongst the Koh Lanta... More
