“Not personal, terrible wifi, rooms need maintenance”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014 via mobile

We booked in advance, it's not cheap and you think you might expect 4 star service. Not the case. The wifi is either extremely slow or not working at all and not available in the rooms. Staff lacks the Thai friendliness.
Our bathroom flooded itself since the shower water gathered at the entrance. Breakfast is simple and ends at 10 am sharp. Wouldn't go back.

Stayed for a week in November 2013.
Good bungalows, good aircon, good bath - although hot showers was few and in between.
The restaurant was ok, good service. Breakfast buffet was OK. Really helpull staff, moped rental avaialble. 10 min drive from pier.
Beach was really nice.
If you are looking for party area, I would look further down the beach - around Klong nin. We were two frends travelling (around 30) and we did fint it abit too quiet.
But all in all a good hotel! Better for families than for friends perhaps..

I found it hard to evaluate options in Lanta because of the lack of consistent and frequent reviews here on TripAdvisor. Such was true for Nakara as well, but I'm glad we "took the risk" and booked here.

I agree that the rooms could probably use a little work, but I'm staying in the cheapest option and I'm still very satisfied. The value for your money is spot on (at least for what I'm used to as an American). The pool facilities are very nice, and everything overlooks the sea. The bar and restaurant prices are very reasonable as far as I'm concerned, but I do agree that the food isn't the best. It's OK, but it often isn't hot enough. No big deal though as there are plenty of tasty, affordable eating options along the beach.

Again, don't expect a "picture perfect" room, but for the price, it's more than worth any small imperfections. No issues with hot water as others have reported.

Wifi is a little weak at times, but you're at the beach, so I'm sure you'll survive.

Overall, would definitely recommend Nakara, especially if you are looking for something affordable that offers a taste of luxury. At worst, you're on a wonderful Lanta beach! It's very interesting though how quickly the scene changes on the Thailand islands the moment you move inland from the beach. Not quite the same.

Room Tip: Standard room is fine if you're on a budget. Otherwise, maybe take the next level up to increase...

My wife and I have visited destinations all over Thailand for the last eight years but had not been to Koh Lanta until February 2013. We chose this resort because of the reasonable price and its location on Long Beach. After staying there for a week we both agree that the facilities were more than adequate. The little cottages were basic but clean. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The pools were delightful. The beach was phenomenal. The breakfast and other purchased meals were delicious. Motor scooters were available for rent and we explored many beautiful areas - especially Old Town. We agree that Koh Lanta is an fascinating island that we will visit again - and most likely we will stay at this same resort which helped us develop a positive impression of this "Swedish" destination.

Walked by the resort and asked if they had a family room. Got a really nice bungalow facing the beachfront. Since it's green season the resort was mostly empty and we had the decks and pool for our self. The room was good, but the beds were a little hard and the bathroom door was broken. We had large windows facing the beach and a pleasant veranda. The two pools was right next to us and we lounged at the deck facing the sea.
Breakefast was not included. We ate lunch there a couple of times and the food was ok and service good. We asked if a friend and her little son could visit us at the pool, but they have a strict policy that the pools are only for staying guests. I understand this for high season, but they could perhaps have made an exeption with an almost empty hotel?
We stayed four nights and would have stayed longer, but the last day they drained the big pool for cleaning. The pool will be closed for a month. Since the sea was to rough to swim in we needed a pool and didn't stay on.
Overall a good place to stay in green season, with few people around and relaxed atmosphere.

Room Tip: Bungalow 101 was very nice in low season, might be to noisy there in high season, beeing so close to...

I really liked this place, even though I felt it was a bit pricey. The rooms are very nicely appointed, with nice beds, and nice hardwoods used throughout.. Having said that, the use of the nice hardwoods makes the need for maintenance more apparent. It could use a bit more maintenance in certain areas. There was no wifi in the rooms, but was good at the lobby area. The main pool was nice, lots of young families enjoying the facilities. There are 2 pools on the property. Breakfast was buffet style, and very good, with a great selection of foods and fruits, juices, some local foods etc. The location is fantastic, on probably the best beach on Koh Lanta, well positioned to many dining/drinking choices. The staff were all very nice, and spoke english well. I found out that most of the staff was brought in from the Philippines! This place was quite charming really, with all the bells and whistles, if you have to be beachfront, I would recommend it.

After spending one horrendous night at Soontreeya bungalows, we booked in here and had a lovely relaxing time. There are issues like not enough sun loungers around pool and none on the beach. They say they are not allowed to use the beach but every other resort hotel along there have them?
Our de luxe room was clean and spacious with all the amenities we could have wanted. It needs a refurb soon but all in all it was a lovely place to stay and the beach is fabulous with no rocks to spoil it. Big buffet breakfast was great and we ate lunch there and the food was good.

Room Tip: The more you pay the better the room...
