“Swedenville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2011

A hundred rooms and 99 of them occupied by Swedish travellers here on long vaccation escaping their winter. Many children with them. But Swedish people are nice (not very outgoing on average though) so we were very happy to be the only non-Swedes (Aussies). Great rooms, good breakfasts, magic restaurant on the beach, short walk to many other good restaurants along the beach, interesting long walk into town (or short cyclo ride) whre there are many other restaurants and shops, nice little pool (although pretty busy). This is a really good place to stay. The beach is excellent to swim in, safe, sandy, no sea lice or sea weed or jellyfish, warm. Food in the restaurant was superb and well priced and the service was also excellent. We had a queen size bed, a single bed and an extra bed on the floor to accommodate the 4 in our family. Family rooms exist but were booked out. Service at front desk fluctuated between average and good, depending on who was there. Highly recommend this place.

Stayed here for two nights after leaving our previous accomodation in Koh Lanta.

Loved it here. Yes the bungalows are basic (compared to where we had been staying), yes its full of europeans on holiday, but ignore that, and you have a great beach, full of wonderful bars and restaurants - got to Banana for food, and all the bars leading up to it for drinks. AMAZING.

Staff were very friendly, helping organise transfers to Krabi etc

Stay here if you want good accomodation in a good location.

We just came back from our 5th holidays in Thailand, this time went to Ko Lanta. The hotel we stayed the second week was Southern Lanta, which is just on the beach, with many good restaurants around. The management is really efficient, professional. The rooms are clean, not new but good value for money. The place is good for families with smaill children, as the swimming pool is not too deep.
Overall nice athmosphere, cozy place.

Nice location direct at the beach. Stayed for 6 days in superior garden view bungalow. Friendly staff. Nice beach . Despite low tide nice to swim. But something burned in the sea water, maybe very small jellyfishes or like said plangton. Not enough sunbeds. If you want to occupy sunbed, you should wake up at least at 6 a.m. Old furniture ant towels in bungalow. There was not anything from mosquitos in bungalow. There are a lot of Swedish families with children, therefore at 10 p.m. very silently.
