This is my third time staying at Srilanta and I'm only 32 years old! I love the place for a number of reasons.
It is extremely good value for money - you have 4 star facilities but with 3 star prices. Each room is a bespoke bungalow and feels extremely authentic, rustic and serene. There is a 4 poster bed in each room, which adds to the romance and the bathrooms seem to have been renovated this year. The accommodation is therefore relatively basic but that is the whole charm of Srilanta for those who are bored of identikit hotels which could be in any beach resort. The bungalows are on a beautiful path up a steep hill (request a lower bungalow if you struggle physically) and I think they all have a mezzanine / balcony - some even have a bath on the balcony.
The first time we visited Srilanta, we were worried about the location but it is absolutely perfect. It feels like you have your own private beach but just 50m to the right, there are dozens of bars and restaurants along the beach. They cannot be heard from the hotel, so you have the best of both worlds - plenty of choice but with the air of privacy you would want from a beach holiday. As a general rule of thumb, all the food in this part of Thailand is wonderful and the cocktails are a little bit hit and miss! Lucky fish restaurant one or two down from SriLanta is particularly good and the local kids put on a fire juggling show.
The spa is fantastic but you have cheaper options along the beach. Try Miami Massage which has a small hut on the beach - having a sunset massage there is bliss and also very cheap!!
Koh Lanta town is worth 3 hours of your time if you want to buy some fake sunglasses and other nik naks, otherwise definitely try the four island boat tour and the elephant treks are also a lot of fun.
I would recommend Srilanta to anybody. The staff are attentive and friendly and the infinity pool, sun loungers, restaurant and spa are all of a much better quality than the price suggests.
Enjoy!

Room Tip: If you struggle with steep hills, then request a lower room - it's a struggle, especially when i...

We stayed here for 6 nights after moving out of the awful lanta palm beach and were very happy with our choice. The bungalows itselfs are nice and we felt comfy staying in them which was good as it was raining for most of our stay. As they are situated in the tropucal garden you cannot expect them to be as sterile as a european hotel so there will be ants and other insects around. Unfortunately there was a bit of a leak from the heavy rain and we felt that the staff was a bit overwhelmed by requests at that time so it was not dealt with during our stay.
The restaurant was good although the breakfast buffet could use a bit of a spice up and the drinks are rather pricy. The pool and beach are lovely and the nice staff will help you if you need anything. We would stay there again would especially recommend it if you are seeking a place to relax.

I stayed at Sri Lanta in November 2013 and in November 2004. Obviously being a beach front resort, the weather can play havoc with any property, but in the 9 years since my return, the resort is truly in need of some tender loving care. The staff at Sri Lanta was lovely and very accommodating. The food, while pricey compared to the beach offerings, is prepared expertly and you are given a large amount of choices.

What I was surprised about during this stay was that the rooms feel old, outdated and were definitely not clean. Because the resort was almost fully booked, I was accommodated in a beach front house. As a solo traveler, I felt a bit unsafe in this 2-bedroom ground level house that was cut off from the resort, but completely open to the beach front. Additionally it seemed as if the house had not be cleaned in months. Spiderwebs occupied various parts of the bathroom. The trash can was full of someone else's trash and the blinds in some of the rooms had been broken and sloppily repaired. The air conditioner remote in the main bedroom was broken so there was no temperature adjustment available and I had to stand on the bed to turn it off and on.

Overall I had a pleasant stay and the common areas at Sri Lanta are what you should consider for this property. The beautiful pool, stunning beach front access, the lounge chairs and umbrellas. If you're not planning on spending much time in your room, as I did not, then the location is something to consider.

I stayed there for 5 nights in November and loved the place. Public areas of the hotel are stunning and evening yoga classes facing sunset gives sun salutation its true meaning. Food is very nice, rooms are big and clean with AC and deco is nice and sober. I had a room with a lovely view and a balcony. The spa is set outdoors in the garden and you get a truly relaxing experience. I went there on my own after the girlfriend I was supposed to come with had an emergency. The staff made me feel very welcome and everyone was very friendly and really got out of their way to make my stay very special. Muay- the lady at the desk- even mailed me back the glasses and book I forgot in the room after I left- try that one in Europe !!!!!
So yes I agree with the other reviewers it is slightly pricier than your average resort in Thailand but the service definitely makes it worth the extra money but as a lady travelling on my own, it felt like a real treat

The public areas of the hotel are very nice. Even though it rained for four days during our stay (everyone said this was very odd for mid november) we didn't get cabin fever because we were able to camp out in the covered open air areas. Great full breakfast every morning. Pool is very nice but very small. Lots of seating along the beach which is a stones throw from the main reception area. Rooms were fine. We started in one room much further up the hill and then asked to be moved to a closer room which they accommodated for us on the second day. Rooms have AC (at least both of the one we stayed in did), but when you take a key with you the power goes off in the unit. In our first room, the mini fridge also turned off, but in our second room the mini fridge was on a dedicated circuit. Beds in both rooms were quite firm, especially by American standards. Two free bottles of water everyday. Nice big shower, but not a lot of hot water, as there is a small electric water heater for each shower to control temperature. good happy hour at the beachside bar. Had dinner at the restaurant once, it was nothing special. Ate out for dinners the rest of the trip.

Overall we really liked the experience here, but it is more on the rustic side. If it hadn't have been raining so much we probably would have spent most of our time lounging in their beach area.

Room Tip: The rooms are separate private "cabins" outfitted with bed, tv, mini fridge, AC, bathroom...

Last year we were here during Christmas. The hotel is really expensive for Thailand prices and if you have a cose look, everything is almost broken and dirty. We had booked this room 6 months up front and still we had the worst cottage without view, because it was placed directly next to the other home. After changing to a new home the personel were so unfriendly to us.The restaurant employees where not friendly and helpful and after we decided to check out after 2 nights, suddenly our trip to Koh Rock was cancelled as well. Mandatory Christmas dinner for 130EUR per person was terrible. Don't go here. Terrible and sad Christmas!
