“Delicious Thai food at restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

We did not stay at their hotel but we had dinner in their restaurant. The hotel is next to the pier. The extensive menu was primarily Thai food with a nice selection of beverages. We ordered a carafe of red wine and 3 Thai dishes. The wine and food was delicious. We highly recommend the Lareena restaurant. There are not many decent sit-down restuarants near the pier.

We stayed at Lareena for three nights and, although the rooms are basic, we had a fabulous time... There is a huge era in which to relax outside of your room, with the choice of lay out day beds, cubby hole seating and hammocks... Plus the food was amazing, in fact some of the best we have had in Thailand yet... Really fresh, cooked to order and full of flavour!
We had our two year old with us and could not rate the staff highly enough for occupying her and playing with her :-)
We will be back soon x

I came here for a couple of days stay with friends from Pattaya. It is a complete contrast, no bars, a few restaurants but a very active 7-11.

The hotel is easy to find being right next to the ferry wharf. Whilst this does mean you can here the ferry horn, I did not find this overbearing or infact unpleasant. I quite enjoyed watching everyone busily going about their lives whilst I reclined on the very comfortable day bed on my balcony.

The room I had came with direct sea views and made a very pleasant location for evening drinks and chats.

The bed is large and very confortable, loved being able to hear the waves from my room.

No mini-bar, but a full fridge and the 7-11 just outside the hotel door.

The hotel has a very relaxed atmosphere, much like the island itself and I quickly slowed into the way of life.

Breakfast is standard American cooked fresh for you and entirely adequate.

Would I come again - in a shot, great place to relax and to get out of the hustle of Pattaya.

Room Tip: The suites have 180 degrees of sea views.

We stayed at the Lareena Resort for 4 nights in the middle of 3 suites having thatched walls separating our patio/balcony from the other two suites. The decor is indeed funky as another reviewer noted though not my particular style.
On the positive side, the room was bright and large and the air conditioner cooled it efficiently, Room cleaning was efficient when requested. There were multiple seating options in the room so it felt very spacious though it was just the two of us. The refrigerator, though small, worked well as did the Internet and shower. The American breakfast was just ok, including two eggs, the usual hot dogs, a few pieces of bacon and a couple of slices of toast.
On the negative side, the floor of our suite was a patchwork of indoor/outdoor carpeting with edges that keep separating and turning up at the corners. Paint was fading in several places and, in particular, the bathroom needs a redo. Though our balcony was large, half of it was affected by the air conditioner turning the already hot air outside even hotter and limiting seating options outside.
We didn't particularly mind the sound of the ferry boats or speedboats though you are right there at the dock for all to see and vice versa.
My wife is Thai so I am not sure if that affected our interactions with the staff at all. We/she had not problems getting what we requested though they did seem to just sort of hang around most of the time rather than even trying to look busy,
I am not sure we would stay at this resort again and almost certainly won't be back on Koh Larn anyway. Much of the island suffers from overexposure with dirty, crowded beaches though there are a few quiet ones that should be sought out (e.g., Ta Yai) though even these are not as clean as they could be with a little effort. Likewise, avoid the scenic viewpoint that charges 10 Baht just to get a clear view - and pretty good whiff - of the island's dump.

Room Tip: Our middle suite seemed like the best location. We enjoyed the view across to Pattaya and the privac...

- The location is accessible from one of the piers in Koh Larn.
- Staffs are friendly
- Food tastes ok
- The ambiance of the place in the evening is relaxing
- The room we stayed in has a balcony overlooking the beach/pier. It is colorfully designed but the tables, TV and bed are not properly arranged.
- The bed is comfortable with clean and soft bed linens.
- The best disappointment is the bathroom.

Over priced shanty of a hotel, dirty, red felt for carpets, crumbling bathroom, no wifi, no mini bar, no nothing except a view of the sea interrupted by the blaring sounds of the ferries horns arriving and departing

Go somewhere else on the island of Koh Larn, even the beach would be better than this hovel of a hotel

We stayed only one night at Lareena resort. The resort is right on the water, decorated in a funky/Thai style with comfortable outside seating, restaurant, bar, and open lobby. The room was unusually huge. The bathroom was roomy and clean. They gave us good quality towels. We spent quite some time on the water terrace watching sunrise. I wasn't impressed with breakfast - eggs, white bread, a slice of bacon, two sausages, and coffee. But the location, the ease of getting to the island from Pattaya, the welcoming atmosphere were the winning factors. The resort provides free wifi (working!). There are plenty of little places to eat. You can hire tuk-tuk to get to quite beaches away from tourists - just ask at the front desk. I wish we stayed longer. Will be back if I visit the island again.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room to get better views in the morning.
