After spending 4 weeks travelling through SE Asia on a guided tour I booked 5 nights here with a friend looking for some relaxation, we certainly found it here. On arrival our room wasn't quite ready but we had some lunch and then told chalet was ready and our bags were already in the room, impressed! We had one of the 'normal' chalets (there are executive ones too), it was a lovely surprise on opening it up, very clean, amazing bed and good amenities. The bathroom is located outside which takes some getting used to, but nice and clean! The breakfast choice is great and the restaurant friendly staff. The pool really nice and clean. It's a short walk to long beach which is just beautiful! You come out at Lym's rice bowl, owned by the same family as the chalets, the food is great and owners very friendly (English excellent as they live some if the year in Birmingham!). The chalets are managed by son and daughter and this is the mum's restaurant! You can use the sun loungers here too. The office was very helpful booking us trips, we did 4 island snorkel tour which was fab. We also hired a moped from the hotel which was cheap and is a great way to see the island, only trouble was it had a flat tyre! We had it fixed and the manager had no hesitation in taking off the cost from the hire of the bike so not too much of a problem! Also after travelling I was looking for a computer to download my photos, there is a laptop in the coffee shop which is free, was great to sit there in interrupted and sort things!

If you're travelling on your own just a warning Ko Lanta is a quiet island, and lots of couples! However of all the islands I've visited in past few weeks (Krabi, Ko Phi Phi and Phuket) I would return to Ko Lanta and Long Beach Chalets in a heart beat, enjoy!

This place is so relaxing and in a beautiful garden setting. We stayed here for 6 nights and loved every minute of it. The beach is very close a 5 min walk at most and the pool area is great. Nice beach and lots of options to go to other beachs in the area, asked for staff advice and we went to a great little bay and restaurant about 30min drive away.

The ' Three Moms' restaurant serves up great food and there is also another restaurant on the beach also owed by the same people that is also nice.Breakfast is nice and many choices.
We booked a tour through the resort with Opal Tours to go snorkelling at Koh Rok island I would recommend doing this as it was a great day out.

The bungalows are very cozy and have a nice balcony and bean bags to sit on outside, very nice well kept lush garden setting.
Staff will help with any questions you have, cannot fault this place we will be back!

Stayed here for 5 days in November, what a lovely place so quiet and peaceful. Had chalet over looking the pool which was great. Room was a good size and was cleaned every day. Breakfast was included from "three mums" restaurant and there was a really good choice enough to satisfy everyone. Ate there once at night and the food was great. 2 minute walk to a lovely beach whichbwas very quiet when we were there.

Had several lunches at Lym's rice bowl food excellent, also had cookery lesson which was fab and free you just pay for the meal.

Hired scooter to get round island well worth it. Went on trip to 4 islands and did some snorkelling, all arranged by Poo. All in all a fab place to stay Poo and the Three mums really make it like home.

My husband and I stayed at Long Beach Chalet at the end of September/early October for a week and loved every minute of it. The owners have done a fantastic job of creating this boutique resort. The bungalows are spacious and comfortable, the pool area is nice and it's a short walk to the beach. They also have scooters which can be rented very cheaply for getting around the island. The massage place just over the road is amazing, and we would highly recommend all the little roadside restaurants. All in all it was a great stay and great value for money. We hope to go back next year.

Room Tip: The larger bungalows are well worth it.

Oooo where to start:-
Spent a week here beginning of November, we stayed in chalet B1 its balcony overlooked the pool, towards the beach, and the restaurant was just behind us, we paid 2200bht a night.

Poo very kindly sorted our transfer from the airport, but am afraid he didn't prove very helpful when it came to leaving and arranging ongoing arrangements to another island.

The chalets are clean, spacious, with mosquito net, with bean bags too if you wanted to sit on the balcony instead of the underneath cwtch. Plenty of space to store clothes, a semi-outdoor bathroom (but with that comes mozzy's and lots of ants). A great fridge which was stocked with 2 free bottles of water every day and was a god send in cooling/freezing other drinks to take to the beach. The air con however proved to be very noisy but was also kept awake by the traffic.

Other than that the location is perfect, so its not on the beach but hey a few minutes and your there, the beach is lovely and clean, but for the first few days the sea was rough and the water was mainly cloudy from the recent wet weather. Its quite spread out on the beach as in no other places to stay immediately next door either side. A short walk on the beach and there are plenty of other places to eat/drink/stay or purchase things from a mini-mart. From the road side there is a mini mart not far and a small handful of places to eat near by. But for more bars/restaurants you need to head down the main road toward Lanta castaway (didn't really appeal to us to social down there as it was very busy in the evenings) - though there is also a 7/11 down that way. As we arrived at the start of high season, I was disappointed that it took nearly 7 days for any sun loungers to be brought out by Long beach and even then there was only two. We spent the week lying on the beach, whilst they supply you with beach towels which is a god send, lying on the beach means your more likely to be bitten by sand flies. Invest in cocunut oil... You might want to consider buying a double wicker beach mat.

The pool is lovely and clean, never very busy but was a welcome retreat when it was raining as we didn't want to be on the beach with our things getting wet. Would be helpful if the sun loungers had cushions as they are not very comfortable to spend the day lying on.

After a day on the beach, we would venture up to Lyms rice bowl (which is part of long beach chalets and run by the three sisters) most afternoons to have some beers and cocktails (happy hour 4-6pm 100bht) and watch the sunset. We spend many evenings speaking to two of the sisters and were such lovely and friendly people.

We had breakfast included with plenty of choice which is eaten at the three mums restaurant and one evening we did eat there, however was disappointed to received raw chicken satay. When we complained they just took it away, with no apology, not even a free drink - so must say we didn't eat there again. In the evenings we mainly ate on the beach, take a right as you leave long beach chalet and there are plenty of places to ear as opposed to the left.... to the right we went to funky fish, ate twice at thai cat - had no complaints. To the left we went to lanta castaway which was also nice food. One evening we walked along the main road towards lanta castaway (about 20mins) and found a tiny restaurant however the food wasn't that great so we stayed beach side for our evening meals. Be prepared if you have starters that they usually come out with you main as well.

Take a torch as its handy at night on the beach with all the coral and rocks which are scattered around. Also helpful on the main road too. If you are going at the end of rainy season take a brolly or a kagool as when it rains boy does it rain.

We survived on 1000bht a day, that included buying beers and snacks from the mini mart,though sometimes we did have lunch at lym's and afternoon beers and cocktails and an evening out with one or two beers. We missed our red wine, and managed to find a nice bottle in 7/11 as not all restaurants had it in stock evening though it was on the menu.

Can't advise on any trips as we didn't do any. We spent our second week at seasons bungalow on koh jum (review to follow).

In a nut shell whilst it was a lovely place to stay, I thought it was over priced in comparison to other places, especially as we were not even on the beach. Would I go back? in theory yes but in reality no, the world is to big and life is too short.

Enjoy your stay and any questions please ask. Sorry for such a long review.....

The Long Beach Chalet is a smaller place with really nice bungalows on poles. We did not have a very nice view from our bungalow, but the ones facing the pool must be the best. The room is nice and clean with a balcony and attached bathroom which is partly "outdoors". The decoration is modern and well kept. Below the house is a relax veranda where you can sit out in the evenings.
The staff is really very helpful and also assist in organising trips for you, taxi etc.
There are restaurants within the area and especially the beach restaurant was lovely.
The beach is only a few minutes walk from the bungalows and it is the most gorgeous beach ever! Various possibilities of how to spend your day in the sun or in the shade.
The pool was OK but the water not crystal clear which took the good impression from it. They could have worked more with the water quality.

Room Tip: Pick one with pool view

There is only one major problem you may encounter with this wonderful place - it's so good that booking may be a problem. Unlike big resorts, there are only slightly more than a dozen bungalows there - don't miss your chance!

P.S. And weekend BBQ at "Three Mums"... Grilled barracuda with black pepper... I'm gonna miss it so much!
