We looked at quite a few different hotels on Koh Lanta and were so disappointed with what we saw.
A lot of places were like backpacker hotels, some were quite a walk from the beach and a couple were just not worth the prices they wanted considering it was September and low season.
So we decided to look at one more hotel and if that was not any good we would leave and go on to Trang.
Lucky we made that decision as the last hotel was Twin Bay Resort and it was amazing.
Twin Bay Resort is located on Kaw Kwang Beach at the northern end of the island and behind the hotel is Klong Dao Beach so you are surrounded by 2 beautiful bays.
As soon as we walked up to reception we knew we had found the perfect place to stay.
Reception staff were very friendly and helpful, the quoted price for a beach front bungalow was reduced to 2000 baht with breakfast and within minutes we were in our bungalow just metres from the water!
Twin Bay Resort has 3 pools and one is a beautiful infinity pool overlooking the beach and we spent many hours in there looking at the views and watching the locals play soccer.
Like I said before we were there in low season but everything at the hotel was still beautifully maintained, the restaurant and pool bar was also open. It was like our own private resort as there was only one other couple there at the time.
The restaurant at Twin Bay was also amazing, the food is up there with the best we have ever had anywhere, the presentation, taste, size of the meals and prices were fantastic. The chef came out to make sure everything was ok and he was such a lovely guy.
I took lots of photos of our meals and we ended up eating there a few times so message me for the link to see them.
About midnight on our first night I woke up to the sound of water so went outside to see what was happening, it was fantastic the tide was in and we were about 20 feet from the water.
Then the next morning a man stopped and asked if we were enjoying our stay, of course I had nothing but praise and it turns out he was the General Manager and offered to upgrade us, well I said no thanks we really loved the beach bungalow we were in!
I could go on and on about the Twin Bay Resort, we loved it there and can not fault the place at all. The beach was also very protected so perfect for swimming in the crystal clear water.
We will definitely be staying there again in 2010.
