Excellent staff, so helpful and friendly! When we were at Lakana, the boats to the mainland weren't going for days. The manager arranged a flight for us, just amazing. Beautiful restaurant and rooms right on the water! Would absolutely recommend!

We've enjoyed our stay in the Lakana Hotel. The staff is very friendly and the kitchen is excellent. The garden is a beautiful presentation of the local trees and flowers and the turtles where a pleasant surprise. The hotel is perfectly located with abreathtaking seaview

We stayed 5 nights at this wonderful hotel on October 2016. The bungalows in the garden are beautiful, the service is great and the food is amazing. The garden bungalows are a lot better than the over water once ( The over water bungalows don't have adjacent bathrooms ). The fish and seafood in the restaurant are exquisite

I stayed here in May 2016 for almost a week with family. Location is beautiful, the cottages over water are simple but functional, and you only hear the sound of the waves and the wind.

We really loved this place! The bungalows on the water are super cozy with the best view of the ocean you can imagine. Rova, the manager, is extremely helpful in arranging flights and other activities. The food is also delicious, ask for the special of the day! Highly recommended and the best prize in the area!
