We stayed for 5 days at LaLaanta in the middle of our trip to Thailand and had a wonderful time. Whether you choose this place, depends on what you want from your holiday. It is quiet and at the very end of the island which for the last 15-20mins of the journey is via a dirt bumpy road and this has its pros and cons as it keeps the resort 'hideaway'- only a few others on the beautiful beach at one time but also means its too much hassle to go anywhere else in the evening. It did not bother us at all; the food was fantastic, fresh thai food and some comfort western food. If you want shops, nightlife, abundance of restaurants this place is not for you- personally we loved the simplicity of this place, managed to really chill out with lovely food, fantastic service and great cocktails. I imagine if we spent 2 weeks at LaLaanta then we would have found it too secluded but sandwiched between 2 more busier places in Thailand, Railay Bay and Ao Nang we found it perfect and did everything we wanted to do- diving, snorkelling, hired a moped and explored the island, even had a wonderful spa afternoon at the Pimalai which is just a few bays a long. If you do want to dive- go with scuba fish they are located on the south of the island so makes the trip much shorter and less hassle if diving at koh Ha. If you want 5* don’t stay at LaLaanta, as June said to us they are not trying to be a 5* resort but then they are definitely not 5* resort prices but do offer a comfortable and relaxed stay with 5* service. Thank-you to everyone at LaLaanta who made our stay perfect, its a testament to them that I am writing this review as I never review anywhere we stay. Abi and Ian
