LaLaanta Hideaway Resort
Ranked #21 of 84 Hotels in Ko Lanta
Reviewed July 4, 2012

After 3 weeks of backpacking we wanted some relaxation and boy did we relax!
The road to the hotel was extremely muddy due to heavy rainfalls so we had to wait in the middle of the jungle for a 4x4 to pick us up but that just added to the adventurous feeling. Upon arrival our lovely host Watchiko welcomed us and apologized many times for the somewhat troubled journey and gave us a free dinner and cocktail before showing us our bungalow at the beach with a very stylish interior and bathroom.
To enable us to stay another day we were even offered free transport to Pukhet airport with their Jeep instead of time consuming public transport.

It is a true hideaway place in the midst of the jungle with dogs, cats and strange animal noises everywhere. All of the staff is extraordinarily nice and the food is just as great.
All in all a truly amazing stay and I can only recommend this place to anyone going to Lanta.

a really long overdue review. we had a great time, staff were genuine, welcoming, funny and helpful. We felt afterward that we'd travel to thailand again and just stay at lalaanta. The best bits i won't give away but good luck getting a scooter up the driveway after a storm!

We've spent 4 nights at the Lalaanta and liked it from the very first second on. The arranged airport pickup worked perfectly fine. From Krabi Airport down to the almost southernmost point of the island it's a good 2,5h drive including the two ferries.
The most remarkable stretch is the last 200m down to the resort which are actually rather steep and in pretty awful condition. We got stuck with our rental car once, but the friendly Lalaanta staff helped us out.
The positives:
- beautiful location right in the middle of the jungle.
- very tasty food
- even better drinks and cocktails
- two pools very close to the sea (cleaned daily)
- breakfast, we could choose from a list as much as we liked (eggs any style, fresh orange juice, fruit jogurt, fruit platter, toast, and the list goes on)
And finally: the Lalaanta staff. Everybody working there gives you the feeling of being part of a family. 'Chiko', the manager runs the place with a smile and as professionally as it gets. Even when we had to check out spontanously at night he was helpful, friendly and generous.
Downsides?
Well, the road to the Lalaanta is really a challenge. And if you're hypersensitive when it comes to creepy crawlers (like I am) think twice cause due to location in the jungle and the fact that there are small cracks between the doors and windows the bungalows are maybe not always 100 percent bug free. But hey, it's a tropical country,and rainy season takes its toll.
Bottom line:
It's great to know that a relaxed and heavenly place like the Lalaanta still exists in Thailand. Good luck to you all.

Room Tip: Sandcastle 101 is absolute beachfront and close to the pool.

I'm just back from my son's 3 day post-wedding celebration which was held at this gem of a resort. There were 28 guests which meant we took over the resort. The staff were very organised and professional, the food was excellent and the rooms were clean and very comfortable. The resort looked beautiful and the staff's joyful enthusiasm and sense of fun created the perfect atmosphere for the casual, loving celebration we wanted. Their readiness to help with flowers, manicures, massages a wonderful thai banquet on the beach made the ceremony perfect. We will definitely be back and I'm sure the other guests will agree that our LaLaanta wedding experience will be a hard act to follow.

This is a long overdue review! We went there Dec 2010. It was just the most wonderful experience ever. I have been to Thailand several times and this is the place you go if you want peace, serenity great food and a getaway with traditional but luxury accommodation. I'd love to go back there but it was on this holiday I found out I was pregnant so not sure its somewhere I would go with a baby. Everyone was just amazing and I couldn't be more positive. go go go!!

4 of us came to stay at the resort as the last part of our Thailand trip and this place is definitely the best value and the has the friendliest atmosphere of everywhere we went! Eveybody went out of their way to make us feel welcome, the rooms were clean and the food was excellent. Patrick the owner shared a taxi with us as we were on the same flight to Singapore and is a top guy, he even took us for lunch whilst we were waiting for our flight. We will be back!

Just back from a great 3nights at la laanta. Stayed here 2 years ago so wondered if it would be what we remembered. It was all that and more. Excellent facilities, a great menu and they cook to order for you if it's not on the menu.
The owner Patrick and his staff are great to deal with and we got the best service here.
Private beach with canoes and easily accessible day trips you'll find lots to do.
A very special unique hotel with first class service.
Cocktails are to die for too!
A great tip would be to break up your trip like we did with some days in the north of the island Klong dao and then some quiet time at la laanta.

Room Tip: The sand castle villas are a great choice
