Can not beat the location! Private, large clean bungalows right on the beach with private patios. After 4 nights we wanted to extend our stay, but unfortunately they were booked, but Mr Pong made a point to drive us to his friends hotel down the street where they had room for us. Walkable distance to lots of restaurants and 7/11.... More

I have been coming to thailand for the past 10 years, and this was my 2nd visit to lanta and my first visit to Baan Rim Lay. This is the best place I have stayed in Thailand by a longshot. I stayed here from the 16th to 23rd december. This is not a resort as such, no reception pool or... More

We loved our stay here! The deluxe villa was huge and had everything we needed. The breakfast each morning was delightful. We also rented a motorbike from them which was so fun and just rode right from the hotel which led us to some beautiful beaches. We were sad to leave here. Also check out the reggae bar up the...

Well it doesn't get much better than this! A beachside Bunglalow for around £50/ night, a few minutes away from excellent resto (Yang Garden), excellent French cafe (Shanti Shanti), serving Illy coffee & French croissants, on a huge sandy west-facing beach with hardly anyone on it, with beach shack shacks, where you can enjoy a cocktail & watch the sunset....

One of the best budget hotels I have stayed at. The lovely couple who own and run the hotel work hard to make sure you are happy with everything. It is a small hotel. There is no pool or restaurant but who cares when you are right on the beach and surrounded by great bars and restaurants. Try Jai dees... More

I stayed 3 nights here, hoping to have longer but this B&B is like a microcosm of Koh Lanta: good and not so good. The good Mrs Yoong is very pleasant and her Muslim husband Mr Pong collected me from the ferry. On arrival I was offered an upgrade to the first row of rooms and I'm glad I took... More

We stayed one night in the luxery room right at the beach. We felt very welcome and when we saw the room we were surprised, it was so clean and brand new build! The sea view from your big bed is awesome. Seats inside and outside, big bathroom with good shower. Outside is also a shower. Airco and internet work... More
