I work, travel and live on Phuket and have done so for 5 years and had my family join me for a 2 week holiday, we decided to give them the ultimate experience and take them to one of Thailands little treasures KOH LANTA, we made no plans as we had been many times before, take the ferry get off at Saladan have a cold beer and make a few calls,on the ferry from Phi Phi, a pleasant Thai girl aintroduced her families properties showed some pics etc and we thought well lets do 1 night what harm could this do 1,200THB per room including breakfast not cheap but certainly not 5 star but okay, and if we are unsatisfied we can move on, on arrival, thoughts where what the !!, go to reception to be met with an aggressive male, handing or should I say throwing keys at me, shouting and pointing go that way room go that way room, a pleasant thai welcome where my thoughts, however go to room OM! this left nothing to the imagination, I was on the internet and called a few places and got another reservation for the following morning. We then head out for the evening and must say surrounding area was okay,the ajoining bar to Lanta Emerald, which I believe must be under different management and where welcoming and helpful, next morning on check out we ate breakfast whilst waiting on pick up and handed in keys, then got a demand for 800THB for breakfast which we where told was included when we paid on the ferry, same aggressive man used bad language to me when i told him breakfast was included, not realising i understood what he had just said to me and called me a black dog and farang idiot, my only words about the lanta Emerald bungalows is give is a big wide berth, would not recommend this to the Soi dogs for their strays to stay in.
we moved to the Koh Lanta Sea House Resort next morning, who gave us the most pleasant warm thai welcome, what you would expect in the Land of Smiles, and made the remainder of our stay on Lanta a very pleasant and memorable one.
