“Great Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

Stayed here for 4 nights after our usual place was fully booked. The bungalows are great spacious, with fans and air con. A nice seating area at the front of each bungalow with a hammock for lazing about. We stayed in M11 which was one of the new bungalows, great shower room with a waterfall shower, the shower rooms wouldn't be out of place in a 4 star hotel. Our room had mosquito screens over all the windows and doors, great mattresses on the beds also flat screen tv and a fridge. The rooms are kept very clean. The food in the restaurant was good, however the my friend didn't enjoy the English breakfast!
The bar area is quite lively with good music. The barmen Nit and Ching are great. We hired bikes at the restaurant and I had my laundry done too. The resort is a two minute walk to the beach, and there are some good restaurants within a five minute walk.
My only quibble was no tea and coffee making facilities in the room.

We stayed here for 5 nights in Jan 2014. Room was pretty basic although did have a/c TV & got water. We were paying THB2500 which I would say was slightly over priced for what you get. I believe a swimming pool is being built later this year. If they don't increase the room rate then I think that will be a fairer price. Place was clean. Food OK. Bar was quite lively and literally 300m from in my opinion the best stretch of long beach.

Stayed here recently whilst island hopping with a friend. We were only going to stay for 2 nights and extended to 4 as it was so great.

- Free pick up from the pier (look out for the guy holding up the Pearl Beach sign)
- Reasonably priced
- All staff LOVELY, welcoming and helpful especially when it came to organising trips and our onward travel
- About 2 minutes walk from one of the best beaches I've seen in Thailand (Long Beach)
- Our bungalow (A11) was simple, clean and spacious and each bungalow has a hammock outside
- Free WiFi (patchy the further away you get from the main building but on the whole fine)
- Food was great and very reasonably priced
- Quiet, relaxed and peaceful - you will not want to leave!

Thanks to all for a great visit and hope to see you again soon.

We had the fan bungalow, as it was cheaper, but we thought they were nicer, big wooden bungalows, large porch with chairs, hammock, drying stand. Rooms were big, clean, fan, mosquito net over the bed, table with mirror and stool, and a large en suite. Stayed for 5 nights, loved it, 30 second walk to the beach. Didn't eat there, but had drinks there, nice bar, friendly staff all over the resort. Would defo recommend, can't wait to go back. Also very helpful when we wanted info on where to go and things to do and they booked all our transport for us, cheaply too

Stayed at Pearl Beach by myself for 4 weeks while doing an intensive course Thai for beginners. AC Bungalow provided all I needed and is a very good value for the price. Location of the property is top! Near to the beach and central on Koh Lanta. For me also walking distance to the Language School. Staff very friendly and helpful. Bar is a fun place to hang out and therefore dangerous if you want to study. Had a very good time at the resort and can highly recommend this place. Kop kun maak krap khun A, khun Na, khun Michael and all staff. Will return.

We spent 5 days at Lanta Pearl and had a wonderfultime. The bungalow was clean, fresh towels and sheets every day. Staff were so much fun, friendly and welcoming. The food in the restaurant was great, plus fantastic cocktails! They also arranged an airport pickup and later a ferry drop-off for us when we (reluctantly) left. Cannot recommend enough!

Room Tip: Any of the M bungalows - these are the newer builds with air conditioning.

We spent a week at the Lanta Pearl Resort and loved it. From the moment we arrived until we checked out all the staff were warm & welcoming and did everything they could to make us feel comfortable. The atmosphere is very relaxed and we felt at home immediately. The bar & restaurant area is great for relaxing as there is lots of seating in individual little wooden huts and chilled-out music.

The food was great - much better than other places we tried on the island. I recommend the hot pan - for the spectacle as well as the taste.

We stayed in A/C bungalows, which were clean & had wifi, fridge (plus free water every day), TV, hot shower. We also used the pick up service from Krabi airport which, while more expensive than the public options, was worth it for us because we were met by our driver who drove us the 2.5 hours to the resort in a private a/c minivan.

We also booked a couple of excursions through the resort, which were very good.

The location is ideal - just a short taxi ride from the main port of Saladan and the beach is one minute's walk away. Despite reading that Ko Lanta gets busy over Xmas, our beach (Long Beach) was pretty quiet. We saw more people on the next beach up (Khlong Dao).

If we go back to Ko Lanta again, we will definitely stay at the Lanta Pearl Resort.
