However, the staff were slow with drinks orders and on our 1st day the bar was completely closed without explanation!! Also, if you rent motorbikes from the... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here during low season in early May 2016. We got our room for very cheap, and were blown away by the modern yet earthy feel to the room. Beautiful huge window with lush green view, and a pool that we pretty much had to ourselves. Don't get me wrong we would never have been able... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in March and initially booked a room in the treetop/inland area. We were situated right at the top of the hill and my girlfriend was fearing the worst when we got to the room. The bad feeling wasn't abated by the dark, stodgy room - the foliage occludes the sunlight getting into the room.... More

Moonlight Exotic is a little off the beaten path, but wow, what a great place to stay in Koh Lanta.

Lovely quiet escape - just sad we didn't have more time here. The staff was friendly and we hired a scooter to go to the beach for supper on the beach. Really beautiful. The language barrier was a bit stronger than in other parts of Thailand. Buffet breakfast was great and the rooms had lovely aircon and bathrooms.

We stayed here for a week. Ko Lanta is definitely more low-key and peaceful than other parts of the islands of Thailand. Moonlight was nice, we stayed at the part when you first enter the hotel. It has a cute private pool and is very updated and modern. The room was actually perfect and each one had its own private... More
