They are very spacious but very dated too. Breakfast is ok but nothing special . The two pools are of a reasonable size but not always clean... More

(+)First,certain,the location.The restaurant-above average. (-)A too long road up here and a unrealistic price for what the resort offers.Breakfast poorly, without variation.Low speed chargeable WiFi.Bungalows in decay.Very ugly bathrooms.The toilet clogged.Blackouts.Rude receptioner.Maids,very few,clean in the afternoon,when you want to rest.Unexplained price difference between different bungalows class(see photos-the ugly toilet is the most expensive).The bathroom's black worm.(see photo)

My husband & I ate at the Southern Lanta restaurant a couple of times in our 8 day stay in Koh Lanta & can definitely recommend. We had great Thai food each time we are here with good service at a reasonable price. Green curry & yellow curry were particular favourites! We can definitely recommend for anyone looking for a...

We had to change hotel and arrived in Southern Lanta. Reception was very friendly and helped us in many ways. Breakfast was included in price. Nice, spacious and clean rooms. Comfortable swimming pool and next to the beach. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this hotel.

One of the largest resorts on the island. It is beautifully located at Klong Dhao Beach. There are mainly Swedes, many with children because of a Swedish school. It is close to Saladan. We are a family with 3 children. We have travelled all over the world and we have been in many places. We have been at Southern Lanta... More

It is not luxury, it is a bit worn but it is great value for the money, the service is perfect, the entire staff are smiling and very helpfull. The beach is great and very large so there is plenty of space for everybody.... More

We decided already at home that we will read books, relax and enjoy each other as we already been in Thailand many times - and that is what we have done, with some smaller trips with our motorbike The hotel is quiet...

I felt as an Asian I was not welcome to stay, this place is catered to white Europeans, mainly Swedish, staff are all Thai, I wonder why they are against Asians staying there, the location is good, right on the beach, that is the only good thing about it

Staying at the residence part I'm reviewing the restaurant and common areas only. Food is ok but attitude is sub par. A family having dinner in the restaurant had to pay for a dinner plate that their kid broke. At a family oriented place! Pool is not cleaned regularly enough and the water gets murky and cloudy in between. The... More
