We stayed at Lanna for 7 nights in August 2013 and it was the most beautiful holiday we have ever had! All professional pictures here are true, this small resort with SPA is a paradise!
We have booked 1 bedroom suite and it was very good choice. The communication with hotel was very good, quick and we have got all, what they have promissed to us by the booking (earliest check-in, latest check-out, transfer from the airport, spa voucher, etc.)
Room was very clean and well equipped. The size is very comfortable for one couple, kitchen is also very well equipped with all, what you need.
Maybe some suggestions what could be improved is to add some small hooks for towels in bathroom and clothes horse for towels after coming from the pool or beach.
Position of hotel is very good, if you are not so much interested in the night life or beach life and you would like to enjoy peace and go out from the busy life during the year. It was the one, what we wanted, therefore we chose Lanna and our requirement was met 100%.
They offered shuttle bus to Bangrak beach every hour and to Chaweng beach four times a day and it is really good enough. You need to only book your seat in the bus and you can enjoy their service. Otherwise, you can also walk to Bangrak beach, it is rougly 5 minutes walking distance. There you can also find a convenient store to buy, what you need!
Hotel staff is very nice and ready to help you and fulfill all your requirements every time. They have also booked a trip for us with snorkeling on Koh Tao and Koh Nang Yuan by speedboat and it was also a very nice experience. On Friday´s evening they have also brought us to the Fishermann´s village, where is every Friday walking street and where you can find lot of shops and restaurant. After then they have picked up us 2 hours later and brought us back to the hotel.
What you need to try is their SPA garden, it is really an experience. Everything what you will choose, you will be not disappointed.
We have visited both beaches - Bangrak and Chaweng. Bangrak is more quiet, Chaveng is more busy. Be careful, on Bangrak beach you can find some sharp rocks directly in the sea (on the right side from main entrance to the beach) and my husband has cut his foot. So we had to visited the hospital and we were leaving Koh Samui with 9 stitches in his foot. Also here we have had a very good service, receptionist helped us to organize a transfer to the hospital and also recommended a good hospital.
3) RESTAURANT and BREAKFAST
Food in the restaurant is really delicious, we have tried lot of dishes from Thai and also from international cuisine and every time we have got, what we have expected.
In first days of our holiday we have got breakfast as combination of buffet and a la carte, later they have changed only to buffet breakfast and it was really a good decision from hotel management. It was more comfortable for guests and also for restaurant staff, they were not so busy and had so enough time to clean up tables and take care about the special requirements from their guests.
If you will order some drinks or foods during lunch or dinner, they are sometimes not quick, but you do not need to be in hurry, because you are on holiday. :-)
We need to only recommend this hotel and say thank you all Lanna´s team that we have had really a wonderful holiday! If we will visit Thailand again, I am sure, we will come back to Lanna!
Have a good time in Koh Samui!!!
