Lanta Pura Beach Resort
Ranked #93 of 159 Ko Lanta B&B and Inns
Reviewed March 8, 2013

I stayed here for four days in February. I knew that it was located very near the town which is what we wanted as it was close to the ferries to the other islands and the diving companies. It was much more expensive than the places we had stayed in the North at around 50 GBP per night. We arrived and a room was ready but it was a double and not the twin we had asked for. They corrected that and after about 1/2 an hour we went to our room. Nice rooms, good amount of space and good bathroom with a good shower. We got a room at the back of the hotel on the ground floor so no view but nice and quiet which suited us. Breakfast was OK, quite a lot of choice and included in the price. Sewage smell was sometimes not good but actually not so bad that it ruined our stay. Staff were friendly. Don't waste your time wondering around the town looking for a better deal from one of the tourist shops because we found that the one in the hotel was excellent and very helpful. Definitely hire your scooter from here, no need to surrender your passport like at some others.

Room Tip: Ask for a poolside room on the first floor or higher

For first I would like to say that I have spent a lot of time looking for hotel on Lanta and in the end we chose Lanta Pura Beach Resort. Location of hotel is close to the "city" which is great, but the beach is very poor.Hotel beach is dirty and you can not swim in the sea.
The room that we got had a look at the wall and was poorly maintained. Only if you went to the balcony in the distance you could saw swimming pool and the sea. However, since we were too tired to ask for another room, we remained in that one.
Another thing of which I remain surprised is the breakfast. Choice of dishes for breakfast, was very poor, so we did not know what to eat. The only bread that you get is the toast bread!
I have to commend the tourist agency that operates within the hotel. Employees are very friendly and the prices are comparable with other, only that here you're sure that you get what you booked.
If we come back to Lanta, we will not go to this hotel again.

If you like your hotel to smell of raw sewage, then this is the place to stay.
Arrived late with smiles and friendly staff, however a transfer had to be arranged with a local dive company. The hotel replied to only one of my 4 emails and provided me with a very expensive answer to get from the airport to the hotel. Whilst there are amble ways to get there on budget.
The room was clean, secure and safe however the view was of their bins and trees.
Breakfast was poor and outside, so the smell kinda left a bad taste in your mouth. The staff were very friendly and the travel team there were very good.
I will say the location is very good.
Lots of families and loud children. Beach is not good, compared to the other beautiful beach resorts. There is a chance that your room could be in an even worst part of the resort facing the beach toilets and showers. Please don't take this risk.

Avoid!

Room Tip: Stay on left side.

Great place to stay! Rooms are great and we loved lounging at one of the pools! Staff are not making too much effort to ensure a pleasant stay but the front office staff were very nice! The location is perfect but for the nicest beaches you have to rent a scooter and head south

After traveling from California with our 3 year old son we arrived to be welcomed by a very friendly staff. Unfortunately the room we booked was not the room we got. After we were told that they were booked for the week they proceeded to welcome new guests the next day.......about 20 young kids coming to party. We watched those young kids get the poolside rooms we got charged for!! So, I guess the positives of this place were the close proximity to town which included shops, restaurants, and scooter rentals. Also this place was VERY affordable and had clean grounds.

Room Tip: Make sure you look at your room before you get checked-in!!! Our poolside room was a jungle forest v...

We stayed here for a week in late January, having chosen it for its location near all the shops/restaurants so we'd have some variety in the evenings. Well we got that ...fine. But what we didn't expect was the "call to arms" from a school a few hundred metres away. Every morning about 7.15 the PA system would kick in with some sort of speech, shortly to be followed by the most annoying repetitive children's Thai song you can possibly imagine. So that's it folks, yr up for the day as this continues for around half an hour.
The pool area is crowded and the guests ( mainly Scandenavian ) follow the good old German tradition of towels on poolside loungers at the time of the call to arms ! Unfortunately the beach and sea adjacent are the poorest on this side of the island, but I have to say the other 6 or 7 beaches stretching south from here are absolutely fantastic. The first is a 20 minute walk from the hotel, or a 100 baht tuk-tuk ride..
The room we had was spacious but nothing special, the pillows were hard. The shower delivered very hot and then cool water on a 5 -10 second regular interval. The breakfast as others have described was average and everyone arrives more or less at the same time, due to the call to arms, so its a busy area breakfast and not leisurely as we would wish on our holidays. The nearby restaurants are excellent and good value in the main, so as we had only booked B+B we didn't try the hotel food for evening meals.
On the walk through to the beach you have to cross a smelly creek by foot-bridge, so this does not encourage you to swim in the sea close by.
In conclusion, not a place we'd stay at again, but Ko Lanta island is a definite must for our next visit to Thailand.

Room Tip: It might be quieter in the poolside rooms in the mornings...

location very good, cleaning poor, breakfast ok, you may get a room from the old hotel lanta all season resort (same owner). The room was smelling damp, dark and old-fashioned.
Wi Fi connection did not work properly ! Can be electric black outs !

Room Tip: even you pay for a better room, you (may) get a terrible one !
