We can only give are warmest recommendations of Lanta loft, if you are looking for an apartment in koh lanta.
We stayed in apartment 3b at the third floor, overlooking the hill and with view to the sea and sunset. It is a modern/scandinavian style apartment, with all the amentities you need, 2 huge bedrooms with own bathrooms, a huge (living, cooking, eating) area and two large balconies. They can provide extra bedding if you are more than four people and the apartment can easily have 2 more without feeling crowdy. The apartment is serviced, everything was cleaned everyday, bedsheets (which was excellent) was changed every second day, towels everyday, beachtowels are provided in the reception. Theres a small but nice pool with sitting area, a small cafe/winebar, and security at night.
Lanta loft is situated at a hill top, 10-15 min walk from Long Beach. This may be a disadvantage for disabled people, but if you dont mind a short walk it will give you the peace and quietness which is hard to find.
Management was nothing more than magnificent, Dean - there Thai "do-it-all" guy was so lovely - he could be of assistence in any matter - car rental, tours, where to go, what to see, picking things up, driving you to town, even giving a short but fun introduction to fire dancing - he really made the stay perfect.
We were lucky to be there when two of the owners, Marc and Julie, was there, and they really made us feel at home as well. They always had the time for a chat, giving recommendations for eating out and all in all just very friendly and kind.
All in all this is the perfect home away from home...
