We stayed for a week with our three young children age 5, 8 and 9 and loved the hotel. We were on a budget so knew we wouldn't be getting a five star experience, but we've stayed at five star hotels before and I don't believe we enjoyed our stay in Kaw Kwang any less. - Staff were lovely, really...

The location of the resort is the great advantage it has compared with all the other resorts in the area. We heard it was the first resort there and that explains it! There are some remodeled rooms that are nice but the ones we stayed were old, dirty, needed a lot of painting and their infrastructure was just before a... More

We stayed at the neighbor hotel, luxurious Crown Lanta, but found the restaurant prices way above normal. We found great food and bargain prices at the Kaw Kwang. We ate almost an entire meal there everyday. We had a wonderful time with the incredible staff. Made a lot of friends among them. We felt like family and had to leave... More

The view and the pool are beautiful however the hotel is quite dirty and unkempt. With bottles left around the breakfast was disappointing . The bungalows are shabby and bathroom dirty and in desperate need of a good paint. I've stayed in cheaper and better places whilst in koh lanta.

We booked this hotel for three nights, as our relaxing part of the holiday. We are so glad we booked this after the bustle and bustle of Bangkok and Phuket. We paid a bit extra for the delux sea view apartment, and it was definitely worth it! The rooms were huge with a beautiful front patio with deckchairs and a... More

This was our last stop in our holidays and we decided to treat ourselves with a nicer accommodation after all the backpacking. Well unfortunately the hotel doesn´t look at all as on the website, its old and not very taken care off. The staff was nice but with poor English (they got my food order wrong twice) and finally the... More

Rom seemed nice on the pictures but were not in reality. Dirty curtains and headboard of the bed was dirty. Mold on the sink and dead insekts inside the lamps. Very nasty. Overall outside of the hotel had moldy walls. Pool didn't have clean water. Overall this hotel needs a proper renovation. Never had such a tasteless "Pad Thai" from... More

We really like the location of this hotel as it'd close go town, the pier and obviously ocean front. The breakfast is pretty good overall and they had different things each day. We rented a scooter on site which was great. Staff were friendly and although bathroom was stinky and room was a bit outdated the pool is really nice... More
