I visted Krabi/Koh Lanta in January 2008. I booked this hotel whilst in Krabi and travelled by minibus/ferry arriving in Koh Lanta late afternoon. Travelling alone I decided I'd like a little comfort so opted to spend around 1,200 Baht per night (about £18). The travel agent in Krabi was struggling to find any accomodation available, she warned me that she had heard this place wasn't very nice but I felt a little desperate so told her to go ahead and book it for the full four nights that I would be spending on the island. That was the worst mistake. When I arrived and was taken to reception I was astounded to see how dirty and dinghy the whole place was, the pool was tiny and packed with topless teenagers. My horror worsened when I was shown to my room, it was disgusting, the pillow cases and sheets were stained, the toilet was broken and the whole room just damp and dirty. After about five minutes I decided I simply couldn't stay there, I went to reception to ask for a better room or some money back and the owner just said no, when I protested that he was charging me 1,200 Baht for what appeared to be a 600 Baht room he simply said he didn't care and sat down in his sun lounger. I insisted that the room was filfthy and the sheets were stained and I couldn't sleep in there etc but he just repeated that he didn't care and that was that. So, I didn't actually stay at this resort and I didn't get any money back either. I've learnt now in Thailand if you're traveling around you only need to book your first night and then invest some time visiting resorts in the area to see what you're getting for your money. Koh Lanta is a beautiful Island, it was everything I was hoping for unfortunatley Lanta New Beach Bungalows are not. The whole place has an unpleasant feel to it.
