Initially booked somewhere else but the pool wasnt in use. Irritated and annoyed, we didnt stay and they reccommended this resort. We were sceptical due to reviews and thais do tend to lie to get a sale. This hotel even asked that we pay him to secure the booking at this hotel. Obviously we didnt pay him and agreed to... More

We have been making this resort our winter home for many many years. Great Family who run it, and the staff are second to none. Highly recommended. Food is very good and the chef will go out of his way to please your palate. All in all a fantastic place to relax.

We only stayed at this resort as the original booking we had was with Ocean View Resort and then we were moved to Kaw Kwang as Ocean View was being renovated. Resort was very quiet due to the low season which was fine, however the room was quite expensive compared to other properties in Koh Lanta in low season. Room... More

We regretted our booking already when we arrived. Hotel entrance and reception/restaurant all look very old and are in need of renovation. It's like arriving at someone's back yard. The hotel staff and gentleman at travel agency were all very kind and helpful. Other positive things were beautiful pool and nice green area by the beach. I didn't like the... More

the location was great, staff very friendly and helpful with anything from booking tours to getting extra pillows.Disappointed that bungalows did not have kettle to make hot drinks, as it was advertised with such. WI Fi is only available around reception area and difficult to connect to. The whole resort could do with a bit of maintenance but overall we... More

The location of the hotel, in front of a beautiful and calm beach, is its best asset. The pool is good and could be perfect if it had its lights on during the evening, at least during using hours. In general, the hotel lacks maintenance and it seems that it used to be a very decent place. Nowadays, however, it... More

This resort has seen better days. It would need some major renovations to bring it up to todays standards, starting with the bathroom which was very smelly, taps and shower malfunctioning, towels paper thin. No phone in room. Gardens around bungalow weedy and neglected. Pool was nice but had algae growing on the tiles. Buffet breakfast OK, but very basic... More
