“Amazing Spa!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

I didn't have the pleasure of staying at this gem of a hotel but I was recommended to go to the spa but a friend. WOW! The Secret Garden Spa really is a secret with a beautiful garden setting, it is tucked away with no outside disturbance. I had the Herbal Compress Massage and The Golden Facial...I actually fell asleep! I couldn't recommend them both enough. The therapists we're amazing and I will definitely be going back. This hotel is Koh Samui's top secret!

Many thanks for your review and wonderful to hear that you chose to sample some of the great treatments on offer at our 'Secret Garden Spa...'

We currently have a promotion running in which guests who book stays of three nights or more directly on the reservation section of our website are being given a complimentary '1hr Traditional Thai Massage' to welcome them to the hotel with our very best wishes - and as a 'Thank you' for booking directly with us...

We very much look forward to welcoming you back sometime soon as a guest, so you can sample our gorgeous accommodation and restaurant as well as all the other elements we have to offer - and of course spend more time in our 'Secret Garden Spa...'

Thank you for visiting Lanna.

With very best wishes,

Spent three nights here and wish we could have stayed longer. The rooms are amazing. The Thai food at the restaurant was some of the best we had, and the service we got was second to none. We rented bikes, but they also offer transport to and from the central area of Chaweng at scheduled times, so if you're thinking of drinking that's the way to go, and there are plenty of cabs too. The pool and whole poolside area is perfect for lounging around, and they come by with little chilled glasses of watermelon juice which really hits the spot! It's an excellent hotel offering great value for money. 10/10 from us!

This trip to Thailand was our second visit in this beautiful country. We visited quite a lot areas in thailand and we had lots of very different hotels. The Lanna Samui Hotel was one the best hotels we ever had: large, white, cosy rooms with great beds, a nice bathroom, nice design, even in each detail. Alex and his great team offer the best service ever: discreet, helpful, always friendly, relaxed. The location of this hotel feels a bit isolated, but there a complimentary shuttle bus to different locations and beaches. It is also possible to take a walk of approx. 15-20 minutes to the next beach, with is nice to take a sun bath or swim but without options for snorkeling. But the very large pool, which is also perfect for little kids, offers a great opportunity to relax. You also can use the tuktuk or even bicycles to explore the area. The Lanna offers a free shuttle transfer from/to pier or airport, free wifi with really good quality and speed and a very good restaurant and one of the best fitness rooms we know. Thanks to Alex and his wonderful team! It was a pleasure to forget everyday day life and to relax completely...!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

We spent 17 nights traveling in top reviewed resorts and this was one of our favourites.

Rooms
With the exception of a bath the rooms are everything you could wish for.

Location
We loved the location -you are not directly on the beach but there is a complimentary shuttle twice daily to cheweng and to the Friday market at fishermans village. You can also get the complimentary tuk tuk anytime to the nearby beach.

Service
Alex and his team are wonderful . Nothing is too much trouble and the majority of staff will go out of there way to make your stay special

Other
All the good review are true - I read almost all of them before booking
If you you have longer than 10 nights- I would recommend splitting your trip between lanna and santhiya resort. This is a perfect balance!
The resort was at minimal occupancy - I would not want to stay here if more than 30 of the rooms were occupied. I do not like crowded pools and loungers and people almost on top of one another - based on the size this could be an issue and I would enquire about occupancy when I book again on the future.

Thanks again Alex and team

Lanna provides the ideal location for our guests to get the very best from their tropical island getaway, whether they'd like to relax by the pool, be rejuvenated at our 'Secret Garden Spa,' workout in the gym followed by a sauna and steam and a refreshing dip in the the pool, or simply lie back on the hydrotherapy beds and try to spot a cloud...! Or you could choose to take one of the fantastic day trip available and ride on elephants in the jungle or snorkel with tropical fish in the marine park... But remember, wherever you go and whatever you do, you always have one of our gorgeous suites to come back to...!

We very much look forward to welcoming you back sometime soon...!

Stayed there 4 nights in july 2014. Had a beautiful 2 bedroom suite, great beds. Alex and his team makes this place a travellers paradise. Only thing that is wrong with this place is the location, but they offer free tuk tuk any time a day down to a small beach in Bangrak village that is ok and a free shuttle 3 times a day to Chaweng. We also had had free trips with the Shuttle to The pier, airport and fishermans Village :) - We had a little problem with the airconditioner one night, but it got sorted out. Free refreshments during the day by the pool. Best service ever!
Next time we're in Samui, we are staying at Lanna for sure :) See you next time Alex!

Lanna samui without any hint of doubt was the best part of our honeymoon, they made our 2 days in Samui the best ones I could ever imagine! It's not well located but In my opinion you don't have to waste your time visiting chaweng or nothing because you're staying in paradise! The only bad thing that I have to say is about the high taxi fares that you'll have to pay from and to Lanna if you don't take their shuttle bus.

Stayed in Lanna was a wonderful surprise! I went to work in Samui for one week and stayed in several different resort and hotels, but Lanna is the only one that amazed me and made me make up my mind to go back again.

It is definitely not a big resort, the boutique modern style is why it attracts so much. Everything is pure white, walls, bricks are still well maintained after 1 and half year operating. One big swimming pool in the middle and a spacious dinning place beside, the glass roof brings in sun light make whole place fresh and bright. The room are decorating with white and linen, walking in will feel relaxing, comfy right the way. If people who are looking for rooms with cooking equipment during longstay, Lanna's room got everything from oven to pot to plates and forks.

It locates in Bophut, about 15 mins motorcycle to Chaweng. Unlike chaweng is a very commercialized area, Bophut got a nice laid back and natural feelings. The fisherman's village is only 5-7 mins motorcycle distance, driving alone the coast with sunset, stroll in the village and have nice dinner on the beach is highly recommended!

The staffs are kind and helpful, always come up with smile and ready to help. My motorcycle broke down in nowhere at 10:30 pm one night, I contacted the resort and they sent a staff to pick me up without hesitation. Thought it took a while to wait, still appreciated for what they did for me. Big Thanks to Alex, the manager, drove me to my clients after checkout, you and your team really doing a great job! I'm definitely going back soon!
