Baan KanTiang See Villa Resort (2 bedroom villas)
Ranked #6 of 84 Hotels in Ko Lanta
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 24, 2013

Baan Kantiang See: we've booked this place well in advance since we've planned to go to Lanta as first stop on our Thailand trip. This year we took our youngest member of the family (9 months) with us so we looked for a place where we could also cook our meals if needed (which we didn't :) except for some baby food) and have some extra space for all of us (3 adults, 4 yo and 9 months baby).
So we've covered pretty much everything we could. Well, except the weather. Imagine planning your vacation half a year in advance, flying from another part of the world and than complete washout:) We have experienced tropical depression comming from Malaysia that brought torrencial rain, winds and waves. So no boat trips, swimming in ocean etc.
Thankefuly we've rented a car so we could go to Baan Saladan and once in Old Lanta Town.
But this are the facts that we've embraced since we are traveling for years and we had our share of weather surprices. Regarding our stay at BKS we should only speak in superlatives. Rooms are spaceus, bathrooms beautiful, kitchen fully equipt and the terrace with the view on Kantiang Bay is amazing (despite the rain:). The villa was perfect for our family. The stuff is extremely helpful and friendly. You have enought food and drink option at Kantiang Bay (10-15 min walk) plus there's a 7/11 there also (great pancakes from a lady infront). You can order food to be delivered from nearby restaurant which is good and the prices are normal too, but order food when you are hungry because they never delivered when we asked them too. Always earlier (for example: we asked for food to be delivered at 7.30 p.m. because we were out, but the food was delivered sooner as it waited for us upon our arrival and it was cold).

Stayed: November 2013, traveled with family

We visited Ko Lanta in November.The weather was always good about 30 degrees C. Our Villa was clean and the view from our big terrace was amazing. The Staff at Baan Kantiang See are always friendly and smiling. They do everything that you have a nice stay.Ko Lanta has no mass tourism and that's really good.KanTiang has many good restaurants that you can see on tripadvisor. For example Phad Thai Rock n Roll, Drunken Sailor or you go upstairs in the Alama Restaurant and say Hello to my Friend Aof. He always has a cold beer for you. There is still so much to write but I have to stop. Otherwise I'll be right back.
I apologize if I had write errors. My english is not so good.

My partner and I just spent a few nights at Baan KanTiang See Villas in Kantiang Bay. We were so impressed with the friendly staff, Kitty in particular, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely visit again. The villa was incredibly spacious!! (ideal for 2 couples with their own separate parts of the villa) And our villa, the "Purple" one had the best views from the hotel of Kantiang Beach. Very close to town, only a 5 minute stroll away from Seven 11, pharmacies, and the highly recommended places of Mini Mouse (beauty parlour) and Drunken Sailors (cafe/restaurant). The hotel location was extremely peaceful and quiet, the villa was clean and we really liked the open rain shower - a nice touch. Lovely infinity pool with breathtaking views of the bay also. Room service is available and delivered within an hour as the hotel does not have a restaurant. Thanks for a memorable stay in Kantiang Bay!

Room Tip: Purple villa - best views from the hotel apparently.

We visited Koh Lanta for a family wedding in October. The weather was lovely, only one rainy evening. The Baan Kan Tiang See was fabulous, as others have commented, amazing view, spacious villa and great staff. It was very hard to leave! We hired a car and scooters during the stay as we had family staying at the Pimalai Resort and also at BKTS. This enabled us to get around easily. If you plan on cooking your meals in the villa there is more variety in fresh produce/groceries down at Ban Sala dan a half hour drive away. The shopping/markets were good there too. I would recommend Kan Tiang Bay for a quieter holiday. The nearby restaurants were exceptional, especially Same Same but Different. We also ate at Noon and the Seven Seas restaurant. All in all our family of four thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to visit again at some stage.

Room Tip: We stayed in Villa 8 (Green). This is the highest and most private villa as no one can see onto you...

We stayed here at the end of low season, it was fantastic! No surprises here, it is just like their website says it is. Our villa was clean, with an incredible deck and view. We spent a lot of hours out on that deck. Food delivery is available for a very reasonable price, and the food is very good. We were lucky enough to be there when breakfast started to be delivered, we ordered fruit and toast which was wonderful, lots of fresh watermelon and pineapple. The pool is really nice, saltwater and warm. Kitty on the front desk, and Metta the manager were both so good to us, they went out of their way to make sure that we had a wonderful stay. Both of them are very knowledgeable about Koh Lanta and were good enough to share their suggestions with us regarding day trips and places to eat. I can't emphasize enough what a great stay we had here, and I will be going back .

Room Tip: All the villas are the same, so they are all good.

Like other reviews the view is breathtaking and the service is fantastic. What I found the weakest point of BKT are there are no amenities: no cream bath, shampoo and conditioner, and hair dryer. So I have to buy all at Seven Eleven down the hill. If I have known it, I would bring mine. Also, they should improve the quality of cleanness. I found spider web in my bedroom. It would be also great if they could provide coffee machine and grounded coffee rather than instant coffee. Anyway, we had a good time there.

We stayed with friends for birthday celebration. From reservation to check-out everything was handled perfect. Thanks to Ploy for being so attentive to all our requests. Reception staff was very friendly and ready to help, always asked whether we need anything. Villas are huge wz very good bay view. Even from bedroom there is a seaview. Pool is clean and good located in the middle of resort. We ordered some food and it was quite delicious and at good price. I would reccomend that place to everyone who is looking for good, quite and relaxing holidays.
