We had to change hotel and arrived in Southern Lanta. Reception was very friendly and helped us in many ways. Breakfast was included in price. Nice, spacious and clean rooms. Comfortable swimming pool and next to the beach. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this hotel.

One of the largest resorts on the island. It is beautifully located at Klong Dhao Beach. There are mainly Swedes, many with children because of a Swedish school. It is close to Saladan. We are a family with 3 children. We have travelled all over the world and we have been in many places. We have been at Southern Lanta... More

We have just stayed for 17 days at Southern Lanta Resort, and it has been great. It is not luxury, it is a bit worn but it is great value for the money, the service is perfect, the entire staff are smiling and very helpfull. The beach is great and very large so there is plenty of space for everybody.... More

If you want to spend a couple of weeks doping nothing - this is the place to be! We decided already at home that we will read books, relax and enjoy each other as we already been in Thailand many times - and that is what we have done, with some smaller trips with our motorbike The hotel is quiet...

We are family with two kids and this resort we booked through agoda. First impression was positive, location is fantastic right on the beach, bungalow are clean and neat, breakfast relatively decent. We were staying for 4 days and that was maximum we recommend there. The place is big and crowded so if you are not early bird you will... More

I felt as an Asian I was not welcome to stay, this place is catered to white Europeans, mainly Swedish, staff are all Thai, I wonder why they are against Asians staying there, the location is good, right on the beach, that is the only good thing about it

Staying at the residence part I'm reviewing the restaurant and common areas only. Food is ok but attitude is sub par. A family having dinner in the restaurant had to pay for a dinner plate that their kid broke. At a family oriented place! Pool is not cleaned regularly enough and the water gets murky and cloudy in between. The... More

We did not stay at the resort, but ate here twice for dinner. We chose thai dishes that were delicious and we very much enjoyed them. Staff helpful and friendly, food arrived quickly. The eating area is very pretty, with lanterns and you can sit and watch the sea. The 2nd time there was a live singer, performing her own... More

We tried to book 2 bungalows and we called. Unfortunately, despite the fact that the Southern Lanta Resort was listed on Tripadvisor as a pet friendly structure, when we called they told us that pet are not allowed in this resort.

We went here to spend new years eve 2014. The resort is directly situated on the beach, which is nice. And the parc is well maintained. Cabins are basic but clean and have a nice veranda. Breakfast is good. It's crowded with Swedish families. It was mandatory for visitors who were staying in the hotel at new years eve to... More
