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

We stayed here in two rooms at the end of january and we loved it so much, we were sad when it came to the point to leave. Wonderful bungalows right at the beach. The nicest owner Mr. Pong we ever met, and awsome breakfast on our terrasse every single day. Mr. Pong even took me for free to town... More

We liked Klong Nin beach a lot. Baan Rim Lay is probably the best value for money place you can stay. Mr. Pong provides you perfect service and helps you with all your questions. Furthermore we think that this is the best part of the beach! As normal in Thailand the walls are a little to thin and you can... More

We had a hard time choosing a place to stay in Koh Lanta because there are so many places. We rely pretty heavily on Trip Advisor for reviews and this one deserves its great rating. First of all, there are very few places right on the beach that actually have a patio looking straight onto the beach. Then on top... More
