Kaw Kwang Beach Resort is one of the nicer places I've stayed at in Thailand. The bungalows are quite ok for what you pay. The restaurant was reasonably priced and the food good. The resort is clean and well maintained, the staff friendly and efficient. The sea here is quite shallow and is more sheltered from the waves at this... More

I've stayed at Kaw Kwang resort 3 times in the last 5 years, most recently in september this year, and have never had any problems. The staff were always very friendly and helpful, the service was fine, great food. Therefore I find the previous posters belligerent rant extraordinary! Sounds like he's had a spat with a waitress (could happen anywhere)... More

I am an American who has "lived" in Asia for half my life, my wife and I live in a large city in Thailand and needed to get away from the city for some peace and quiet. We picked Kaw Kwang because of its location and services offered, the idea of "American and Mexican" food helped as well. The "amenities"... More

We just came back from an incredible stay at Kaw Kwang Beach Resort during the Songkran holiday. We stayed for 4 nights and wished we had been able to stay longer. I would recommend this resort to anybody. My only regret is that I didn't discover it sooner!! What made is so fantastic? - located on what probably is the... More

We stayed here for three rest days on our round the world cycle trip. When we arrived there had been some confusion about our attempt to book online (Lesson: only book online if the dates are a week away, otherwise call!) but the staff spent some time on the computer rearranging things and we were still able to stay for...

We stayed here for 4 nights/3 days and could not wait to leave. To start with the rooms were so old and outdated, not to mention dirty - we had dirty old towels and bed linen on our arrival. The bathroom was disgusting and dirty with a leaking toilet. We also had some kind of creature in the roof which... More

This is a lovely place. The resort is at the very end of, I would say, the best beach on Koh Lanta. When the tide goes out, it goes out a long way, but unlike some other beaches on the Island, there are no rocks on this beach or in the sea so it's great for swimming and snorkeling. There... More

We have been in Kaw Kwang Beach resort the last week of February 2010. The location is ideal if you are looking for a quite and relaxing place to stay. We had a « beach bungalow ». They are not really on the beach but a 50m meters from it, facing it. The bungalow was ok if a little bit small and... More

Spacious bungalows, cleaned daily if requested (put the sign outside the door). Helpful staff, travel agent at the hotel (for booking island tours, ferry tickets, vans etc) Pool area nice, clean pool. Not enough sun loungers though. Clean beach, could be a long walk for a swim during low tide. Perfect for small children. Restaurant reasonably priced, good thai food.... More

Every year I get back from my travels and promise to make an entry in Trip Advisor but never get around, but this time I've got to tell you all about a 10 out of 10 experience! Hidden at the end of Klong Doa Beach in Koh Lanta Thailand is Kaw Kwang Beach Resort. The place and staff are amazing.... More
