My mum, sister and I are staying in Koh Lanta for two nights in Feb 09. We have narrowed it down (like most others) to Layana or Pamalai. I've read that the best beaches (white sand/clear water) are in the south of Lanta which made us lean towards Pamalai. Then we learned that the entertainment is on Long beach (closer to Layana) and we would also be interested in checking this out on one ouf our nights. If we stayed at Pimalai, how long would it take us to get to Long beach in the evening?
I really don't know which resort to choose. Current reviews don't seem to be helping. It appears Layana is better value for money but the beach really looks grand down south. Is the beach just as nice near Layana?
Cheers in advance.
