We stayed at Ancient Realm during low season this. Year. David is amazing. The nicest kind of person. Helpful, and knowledgeable. The rooms are clean and more than adequate, with a TV and air-con. The restaurant was good, though they are redoing it, so it should be even better. And early morning rice soup is a must on the porch.... More

Ancient realms resort and spa felt like its own little world on an island that really feels like its own little world. Koh Lanta is an incredible place that deserves to be a part of any Thailand itinerary. The island has something for everyone and is not overrun by tourists like many islands in southern thailand. You dont have to... More

Pro's: - Decent room - Good fresh breakfast whenever you want - Kantiang bay, nice big beach which never gets crowded, cool hippie-ish bar (the why not bar) - Hospitality and good services from David, and the dog Georgie made us feel like home. Con's: - All I can think of is the aircon which is quite weak as it... More

We booked to stay here for a week in August with our 4yrs old daughter. The resort is fine, lacking a little maintenance here and there, but generally ok. However, when we got there we were charged the price of a full extra bed at 300 baht per night extra for pir daughter, which is weird because we picked a... More

I went on a solo holiday just to get some peace and quiet. That is just what I got here. Breakfast was included everyday and it was tasty. The room was spacious enough for four, even though it was just me. Great balcony for reading, studying, or chatting with friends. I can say it is a little slice of heaven... More

Ancient Realm Resort is a hidden gem - not only for it's beautiful location on Kantiang Bay, but because of it's amazing hosts - David, Glenn and their doggie - Georgi. Our accommodations were very comfortable, we could walk to a very secluded beach, could walk and enjoy a friendly & safe neighborhood. This is the best place we have... More

Ive spend a week in this hotel, whereas the location of it is perfect (~60 m from the nice and traquil beach) the hotel itself has lost its glory. The humid air makes that the smell of rotten fruit and penetrating sweat lingers outside, there was a 1 cm layer of dust and hair on the desk, at least 10... More

Stayed here during low season and compared to the other places in the area, this one a whole £2 over my budget, shone through! Helpful and friendly staff, good selection of breakfast included, the finishes in the room were very welcoming and relaxing and the owners have a gorgeous staffie called Georgie - lovely company!

We had moved down from Klong Kong bay, and stayed for four nights in the Ancient Realm in Kantieng Bay. It is a really lovely little place. It's built in an oriental style, with plants everywhere, a small pool, and an incredibly sweet English staffie, Georgie. The rooms are decked out with a bamboo four-poster bed, and towels made into... More
