Average hotel, average breakfast and average service. There is nothing particularly bad or good to say about this place. Walk in to get a better room rate.Pool is quite nice and it is located right on the beach. Koh Lanta is quite dull, if you are a young traveller or couple go elsewhere as there is nothing around.

We stayed in a garden apartment in march. The resort is in a great location. 2 mins down the beach to ghe best cocktails we had in thailand. The rooms were great and cleaned daily. The resort has an excellent pool and the breakfast buffet was very good. The staff were very helpful. No complaints at all

We really enjoyed out stay. Nice, clean rooms. Sparkling pool. Friendly staff. Good breakfast included. Lovely beach. Great food at he restaurant. Nothing fancy here, pretty basic but very comfortable. Most guests were friendly French and Scandinavian couples. Lovely, long beach right in front. Convenient laundry next door. Rent a scooter from the resort and explore.

Location really at the last corner of the beach so little distance of walking along the beach to eat&night time. Stayed at cozy hill bungalow, but can not recommend. Air cod didnt work and saw several animals in the room: cockroaches etc. One day there was no water coming at all to shower or toilet. Friends stayed at standard room... More

after visiting many places, walking directly from the beach, I think this little resort matched all my expectations: 1) the place is not too big, with indipendent bungalows: means privacy and space 2) they have different type of bungalows: according to your pocket (the Ocean Suite directly on the beach is really exclusive) 3) the pool is good enough, do...

We took a pool front villa here after a disaster in Amantra resort. The villa was very clean and nicely decorated. There were a fridge, flat screen tv, safety box and hair drier just to mention few of the conveniences. We could also rent a scooter here so we didn't need to go elsewhere searching for it. We ate at... More

We stayed in the std bungalow which was absolutely fine and for the rate we paid we felt represented excellant value for money. The guests were in the... More

Right on the beach and not too far from all the shops etc if you want to walk into town (about 15 mins.) Lots of bars/restaurants on the beach though so most people just walk up and down the beach at night to find a place to eat. We had a deluxe bungalow which was spacious and well equipped right...

We returned for the first time since we were here during the 2004 tsunami. It hasnt really changed and ko Lanta is not too developed as we had feared it might be. Lots more Swedish tourists and restaurants/bars but Klong Dao is still fairly peaceful and very clean. Golden Bay is a friendly, peaceful place with good amenities and a... More
