Lanta Sea House Resort
Ranked #28 of 84 Hotels in Ko Lanta
Reviewed March 24, 2014

I stayed here with my wife, 2 year old and 5 month old, plus two sets of grandparents in March 2014.

This was the second time I had stayed at Lanta Sea House, the first time was in 2009. On both occasions I stayed in the Deluxe Bungalow downstairs (Room 206) which has a king size bed and single bed and plenty of room for a travel cot which the hotel provides.

The Good:
Perfect location on stunning Klong Dao beach
Good quality and well priced food from the restaurant
Friendly Staff
Close to Saladan town which is well worth a visit at night for excellent sea food restaurants and low key night market.
Spacious rooms, promptly cleaned every morning
Very child friendly with plenty of toys supplied by the hotel

As English speakers we were a bit surprised at the number of Swedish holiday makers at the hotel and in Ko Lanta generally. We discovered many couples and families take months off during the Swedish winter to stay on a long term basis. It says a lot for the hotel that many of these families return year after year to Lanta Sea House. We met several lovely Swedish families but the place felt a bit dominated by large Swedish groups which made it a little less social for an English speaking family with kids.

I'd recommend this hotel to anyone looking for clean and spacious rooms at half the price of a resort.

The resort is in a perfect location but that is about it.
Except for a few new bungalows all the bungalows are old and outdated. Half of the premises is a construction site but it looks like nothing is finished. I think a few years ago the resort was beatifull but now it all looks very poor and a bit shabby. Not worth the money.
There are a lot of swedish old people and families that stay here for a longer time. They 'claim' all the sunbeds from 7 in the morning with there towells. Very annoiing. The hotel should do something about it.
Breakfast is very simple. The restaurant has no atmosphere.

This place is amazing and epitomizes how a family owned and operated business can excel. From the exceptional customer service, to the fantastic food and awesome location, I can see why there were guests there who were staying for months at a time and many of them return customers. All of the little extras were so much appreciated, let these guys recommend and book your activities, drivers, airport pickup, everything was excellent and a very reasonable price. I am telling my friends about this place and we are looking forward to returning.
Thank you very much to all of the team at Lanta Sea House, this is the best place that I have stayed at in multiple trips to Thailand.

Room Tip: The closer to the sea the better, next time I will be booking the best one right at the front.

Recently returned from a mini vacation at the Sea House and very pleased with our stay there. We stayed at one of the newly constructed bungalows which was very comfortable and clean. We ate at the restaurant almost everyday and tried many of the Thai menu options, all of which we very good. Personal favorite dish was the chicken with basil. The drinks were also very good. The staff was very friendly and was happy to answer all of our many questions. We booked a few island activities through the front desk which was very convenient. Only regrets was we didn't allow enough travel time to stay longer. We will definitely return again for an extended stay.

Thank you Lanta Sea House for making our first Thailand experience wonderful!

Room Tip: If booking van transportation from the Krabi airport to the resort, be sure to let the staff know wh...

This is the perfect place for a fantastic family holiday. Located right on the beach and I mean the best part of the beach and still extremely close to the city. The best thing is its so kids friendly. The pool area and surrounding right down to the beach is safe for the kids to explore.

We think the food here is as good as anywhere on the island and the staff simple amazing. Run by one family who couldn't do anymore for everyone.

The rooms are clean and nice size with many different types and prices. Not a luxury resort but incredible value on the beach.

Can't recommend enough. Contact them directly for room rates as prices are too high via travel agents but great deals can be had in person.

We have stayed several times and will be probably be back for longer stays with the kids in the Swedish schools that are on koh Lanta.

Room Tip: Contact them directly

The location and the beach are perfect there are sunloungers on the beach and by the pool and it was a great place to just relax for a few days. The rooms are fine a little old but the aircon worked fine and they were clean but basic. The pool was a little on the warm side and possibly a little small for the amount of guests but it was no problem as you had the sea right in front. They also have a lovely little disabled dog there called Kan-na who is very friendly and much part of the family
