We stayed here for 2 very relaxing weeks and had a simply fabulous time. The cottage has a lovely swimming pool with loungers (towels are provided in your room). There is a nice grassy area (partially shaded too) for children to play in, and the beach is all of a 20 second walk away from the pool. The restaurant is... More

The day before we arrived in Koh Lanta, I had gotten very badly burnt in the sun and was suffering sunstroke, so we decided to choose a place where we could relax and enjoy the peace so I could recover. Golden Bay Cottages was absolutely perfect for this! We stayed for 3 nights and got a really good price. The... More

We ended up at Golden Bay Cottages after a night staying further down the island at Klongnin Beach. We called in to have breakfast & enquire about a room. The staff were very welcoming & helpful offering us a deluxe bungalow at a great low season rate. They even offered to get us a lift to go back & collect... More

I stayed here for 3 nights with my girlfriend we didn't have anything booked and we got a room straight away at a very good price as it's low season. The rooms are basic but everything you need and a good size also clean. The pool is lovely and the beach is really big but quiet this time of year.... More

We came here for 2 nights and stayed for a week. It was low season so we got a really good deal. The hotel is about 5 mins walk from street with a few bars and restaurants but some of these were closed as it was low season. The breakfast was good, buffet style. The pool is very nice with... More

We had two Bungalows one for myself and my husband and the other for my daughter which were attached. They were both nice and clean, cleaned daily, beach... More

We stayed in Golden Bay for 7 nights, and we find the price was good, about 10 euro a night in a double room, breakfast included. The staff is nice and helpful, and it's possible to rent a motorbike for 250 baht a day. Room and bathroom are clean and large, and towels changed everyday. The pool is very relaxing... More

We stayed 3 nights in the cheapest(?) concrete bungalows (with AC) at the back row. Payed 1000B/night, including breakfast. The bungalow was nice and clean with a fridge and two set of towels (beach towels included). Bungalow was cleaned on daily basis and we had new sheets and towels every time also. Only down side, being at the very last... More

We stayed at a standard bungalow behind the pool. I can not say the room was ideal, but after all it's the cheapest option, and you get what you pay for. The mattress was rock-hard; the bed sheets were changed every day and generally speaking were clean, but had stubborn stains a couple of times. Breakfast was average, without much... More

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. Go to... More
