“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013 via mobile

The hotel is on a beautiful side of koh lanta. Very peaceful and private. You have some great views and all rooms are located within a lush green environment. The reggae bar is fantastic. The private beach is nice but not very large. The staff is really friendly and helpful. On the downside: Prices of food and drinks are rather high but the free shuttle takes you to the nearby village. The spa and laundry service are way too expensive. WiFi connection can't handle Skype very well and we had to call the reception every day for a password. Due to the location, it's not suited for older or disabled travelers. Nevertheless, you will have a fantastic holiday in this hotel!

We got a low season deal and stayed in the lap of luxury. The food, service and environment was excellent. Sitting on the deck overlooking the beach at sunset will be a memory that will stick with me forever.

Sure the setting is nice and the location is on the water. But you have a far distance to walk to the beach from the hotel. I would reccommend renting a scooter but not from hotel who charges almost tripple standard rates. no breakfast included but I knew that, but for what I paid I felt it should be included.Wifi is stable and good and they let us use it free. No shower in the room, this annoys me at 100 euros a night come on. room was large but dated. They need to pick up there socks a little here.

Really enjoyed our stay here and the manager Run is amazing! We upgraded our stay to a pool villa and he did everything to make our stay so special! He had a bottle of sparkling wine sent to the room and was very friendly, as were the rest of the staff.
This resort is very hilly, but they offer a buggie service which is great and they are so quick to come get you!
There are a couple things that I think could be better..
The shower which is in the bath is quite difficult to get in and out of.. I nearly slipped a couple times...
The beds are very hard, I felt like I was sleeping on the floor!
There are so many trees blocking the sun in the pool villas, which made it hard to sunbathe! There is a big wooden structure over the sunbeds, which is unnecessary, so if this was removed, more sun would come into the villa.
There is no privacy in between each pool villa...

Apart from those little things, everything else was great!
There is a free shuttle to Saladan each day which is great, loads of Thai restaurants and stalls. There are no pubs, so if your looking for a drink then you need to get tut tut to Klong Dao.. We went to The Fat Monkey for dinner and drinks one night, great place! Food is delicious! The is also. The Cheeky Monkey Across the road which is good ;-)

Defo recommend renting a bike and exploring the island.. We went to the old town, view point, national park and then had lunch in the Diamond Cliff Beach Restaurant. View and food is great!

Then we came again. Second time this year.

Back to the best place we have been in Thailand. The service and the employees are 100% top. Its a joy to be there again.
Despite the fact that it was suppose to be the raining season, we had sun every day and it was hot.

The management in the hotel is very professional and they understand the needs for their guests. You feel welcome and well taken care of.

So we went for a 9 days relaxing vacation and the hotel delivered again.

We will for sure come back again.

Room Tip: Take the sea villa room. Its just so luxury and you spoil your self with the ocean sunset villa room

We had a fantastic holiday at the Crown Lanta Resort & Spa. The rooms were perfect. We had 2 rooms upstairs above the pool, which were interconnected via the balcony (very safe solid fence) & our 2 boys (11 & 13) thought this was pretty special & we felt safe & still had our privacy. The rooms were beautifully serviced (thankyou Dow), the frangipani on the bed was a lovely touch.The breakfast was awesome with a great variety for everyones taste & the lightest pancakes by Chet, complete with stunning sea views. Tek organised a truly lovely birthday surprise for my husband by the sea, with beautiful satin & bamboo gazebo, candles, gorgeous food & we were looked after by lovely staff, complete with firerworks, Thankyou Tek!. The boys loved the swim up bar & mocktails served at happy hour by the lovely bar staff, Pom & Meow & A. (apologies for any wrong spelling). All the staff were lovely but we especially loved Tum & Mam who really looked after us.
Ruun at reception was always cheerful & helpful & nothing a problem. Saladan was only a short ride away in the hotel shuttle. The resort had some designated free trips but we found 100baht cheap enough to pop in whenever we wanted & there were plenty of tuk tuks around to get a lift back whenever we wanted. The food at Crown Lanta was beautiful & we also loved to pop into Saladan at night & try out the different waterfront restaurants. The pancake stall (not really pancakes) on the street was amazing, try one with banana, coconut & condensed milk!!
The driver Reem, who transferred us to the airport was great, very helpful & great peronality.
The only thing I would say that wasn't great would be you need to be careful of the slippery tiles, especially with small children, also the deck was rotting in places & very slippery. They were working on the deck though, so that is good. On various trips to Australia I notice they use a non slip tile which is far less slippery than a normal tile.
Overall we loved our stay at Crown Lanta, we had ten days, another week would have been lovely. Thankyou to all the staff who are part of the holiday experience!!.
