This review is seriously long overdue, as it was November 2012 that we visited for our honeymoon. Why has it taken so long to leave a review? Pure laziness on my behalf, haha. Where do I start? Everything from our luxury van pick up and private speedboat transfer was excellent. We stayed in a garden room, which was beautifully decorated... More

We had not booked this hotel prior to arrival, we were on the island and went online and drove there to check it out. Online gave price of 6300baht. When we went to reception the staff said 8400 baht min. for the same room, odd. Zero negotiation. They allowed us to leave and I said to my husband I am... More

Thank you very much for your review and the "Top Notch" comment. We put a lot of emphasize on the mosquito prevention at the resort, especially in such a tropical country like Thailand. The pest control comes twice a week spraying or fumigating (in turns) around the resort and you might have realized behind the door (door knob) the thick... More

We spent 3 days 2 nights at the resort. This is one of the best service we have experienced in Thailand. All staff are friendly and helpful. Hotel airport transfer by mini van is convenience. The Linger Longer spa is fantastic. The salt room spa is very relaxing. Great place for tranquilly calm and soothing holiday in Lanta Island.

We visited in low season, July, to this adult only hotel on Koh Lanta. They really make you welcome when you arrive and the service is excellent throughout the stay. Nice spa and yoga in mornings, right on the beach, and also has 2 swimming pools, jacuzzi and modern gym.

We stayed for a week in April 2016. We wanted to relax and recuperate...and this was the perfect location. The room was very nice. The pool area was excellent, as was the service. The food was good, as was the happy hour which takes place every night (and includes half-price drinks). One surprising aspect was the price. This resort offers... More
