I can honestly say that my wife and I were a bit skeptical the days leading up to our arrival to Sri Lanta as the latest reviews appeared to be somewhat negative. When we arrived we were blown away by Sri Lanta's pure beauty and serenity.
From the moment we arrived we were in heaven. Great and friendly check-in and the check-in area is very open and inviting that you can already see you going to have a great time.
I can admit that our room was a quite a steep walk up the hill, but we thankfully managed and were grateful that our bags were taken up for us. The veranda room is beautiful and quaint and really makes you feel like you are in a jungle like paradise. Loved the four poster bed and doors opening onto the veranda - only complaint is that the air conditioner is very weak and could only be turned on when you are in the room, so when you would arrive to the room after a hot day on the beach our room feels like a sauna. It would then take about 2 hours for the room to moderately cool down. We then decided to remove our key from the key tag which allows the air con to stay on while we were away.
Breakfast was phenomenal - great variety and fantastic crumpets, oh how I miss those crumpets.
The pool area is very nice and we really enjoyed the pool. There are a lot of loungers but not sure if there is enough for all resort residents - I would suggest adding some more by the pool and modifying the umbrellas so they can be adjusted to move with the sun.
The beach is serene and relaxing, clean water and a nice stretch of beach for good walks. Not necessarily the most beautiful beach in Thailand, as it isn't that beautiful tropical blue colour but it is clean, warm, calm and you can still see through the water.
Great drinks and cocktails and we loved the daily happy hour. We really enjoyed the meals at the restaurant especially their appetizers and loved that drinks and food was served to us while relaxing on the beach.
We tried out several spa treatments and the atmosphere was wonderfully relaxing and beautiful. We enjoyed it but was not our best in Thailand.
Overall we loved our stay in Sri Lanta, from our experience in Ko Lanta it appeared to be one of the best in Lanta. Would definately recommend the hotel any day.
