Stayed here a few nights upon first arriving in Koh Lanta. Got a good deal on the room so not much to complain about. The beach is clean and huge, with some very good restaurants either side of the resort. Complimentary breakfast is basic and edible, just stay away from the meat products. Had some strange, tiny, red worms in... More

We stayed here in October 2014 which was low season after spending a few nights next door at Golden Bay Resort (see separate review). We were really impressed with Southern Lanta - initially booked only 2 nights and extended it to 7. We had 2 bungalows very close to the beach and in the front row closest too the pool... More

We stayed at the Southern Lanta Resort for 2 Nights. The rooms were very clean and the beach is very nice. And only a 1 minute walk away. There are great places to eat when you walk to the main street. ( the places right at the beach are a little more expensive) The staff was nice as well and... More

The resort itself was nice, with good access to the beach. Our room was close to some kind of still body of water so outside the bungalow it always had a faint smell of sewage. Breakfast was actually better than I expected for what is obviously a large operation. The staff were helpful when they had the time to be,... More

I was very disappointed with this "resort" as I paid seven times as much as the hostel I stayed at close by, and the facilities and room were lacking for how much I paid. I also woke up with over 50 bug bites on my legs, arms, and neck. When I notified the front desk staff about the problem, they... More

The hotel is located on the best part of the 3km long Klong Dao Beach. The beach consists of hard-packed sand, perfect for morning runs or for a morning walk with a stroller. The water is shallow and perfect for small children and there is a playground on the hotel amenities. The hotel itself consists of small bungalows, including comfortable... More

Stayed for one night. The resort is right on the beach so you have direct access to Klong Dao Beach. I was booked in a standard garden view bungalow which was fine. The room was fairly spacious & clean. The double bed was very firm & the pillows were fluffy. There was a safe in the room that can for... More

If you are looking for a very kid friendly resort on Koh Lanta, Southern Lanta is a good choice. Our superior garden bungalow was quite basic and overpriced but you pay for the location, awesome beach, the pool and playground. The breakfast buffet was great though service in General was a little impersonal. The resort was filled with mostly Swedes,... More

We last were in Southern Lanta during the 2004 tsunami and wondered how it had changed. We found the amenitis fine, the room comfortable, the rate cheap. It was full and very noisy and the breakfast was poor though the restaurant food was good. The negative for us was the staff, After 2 days we wree still asked evert 5... More
