“nice place in Lanta”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2011

The Lanta Palm Beach Resort is a very nice place with a good restaurant.
When we arrived in Lanta we didn't know where to go. Then a hotel-picker was telling us, that if we come with him, we could take a look at the Resort's rooms, have a free transfer to the Resort and even if we don't like the place we still can deny to stay there.
So we were persuaded and drove with the guy.
Because we really get 2 rooms for 500 baht each, we stayed there for several nights and had a 2-houses bungalow which was very nice. You get towels, toilet paper and water every day, when they clean the rooms.
The Resort is located at Hat Phra Ae the backpacker beach and is directly at the seafront.
The restaurant has some good meals and especially the breakfast is worth it.
The staff at the reception is really nice and they also organize snorkel trips or you can book boat or bus tickets there.
We did both.
We did a snorkel trip to Ko Rok in the Nationalpark south of Lanta. Which was really great.
And we also booked the transfer to Ao Nang. As one of us didn't feel good on the day we already had booked the boat transfer, it was no problem to reschedule the trip to another day.
Also when we told them, that the waste pipe of our rooms were blocked somebody came immediately to fix it.
So you can really say that they are helpful and want you to have a great stay...
It was really a good place to stay

We ate there twice, and they tried to scam us twice!

First time the girl who took our money kept the change, whithout asking anything (she didn't even served us!). When we came back, she acted like she was surprised "oh you already paid??why you back??"

Second time, for breakfast, the guy who seems to be the manager charged me for a pot of chocolate instead of the cup I got (double price!). Fried rice was missing from the breakfast my boyfriend ordered but it was "normal, wrong menu, no fried rice in this one"...

Food is tasty, though.

We arrived in Koh Lanta with nothing booked and were swarmed by touts having had recognised this resort from some previous research we agreed to check it out and got a free taxi ride to the resort from the dock! The guy at the dock had told us 800 bat for an AC room but this price magically jumped up to 1500 bat when we arrived after saying no to the price and sticking to the original price we were shown to a bigger room for the original 800 bat!

The rooms were spacious pretty clean although bathroom smelt a little funny, it was generally good! We didn't realise until the 2nd day that u need to leave towels outside to get house keeping to come!

Staff were friendly-ish and attentive for Thai hosts however resort restaurant isn't great stick to Thai food if u eat here! Options for food on koh lanta aren't great generally speaking anyway!

All in all I would recommend for a quiet budget stay!

We decided to stay at this resort due to nice pictures seen in brochure and good price.
Well we got much less than expected...Actually in every cheap guesthouse you would get better value and service.
Our hut was in a nice place with a sea-view. Room was not bad except that we had to share our bed with ants...they were everywhere! Bed-sheet did not look very clean and fresh so we asked to change it. Bathroom run out and not very clean.
Next day we asked to bring a bottle of water which is complimentary and we were told we would get it with housekeeping. Well we did not get housekeeping and reminded about the water in the evening and then we were told that "housekeeping and water every second day"...
Finally next day housekeeper came to make up the room. Housekeeping was "very nice". She made up our bed and took away rubbish. Did not change towels. No toilet paper. And...no water!
A woman in reception promised to bring us WIFI password and Aircon remote. Guess if she did it. Yes, she forgot!
With some better service and maintenance it could be a very nice place for holiday. But owners do not seem to take care about it...

This was like walking onto the set of a horror film. We arrived and the reception was closed. The taxi driver who brought us had to run upstairs to get the Muslim family who ran it to come and help us. They very lazily showed us to a crap beach hut which was filthy and stained with a leaking toilet. We asked to move and the second hut stank, also unclean. Third time lucky? No....the window didn't shut and the lock was missing, bags of rubbish on the porch. The people running the place clearly didn't care at all whether we even stayed there or not (no wonder we didn't see a single other person there, it was deserted). There was litter all over the place -on the paths etc, it looked like it hadn't been used for about 10 years. I asked the woman for a map in reception - it took her 10 minutes to realise the one I was holding was of a completely different island even though I was telling her it had a different name. Then she declared that all the (dusty) maps were 'finished' and when I asked her where I could get one she suggested 'maybe next resort'. Naturally, we demanded a refund and our money was luckily transferred to a new place by the agent on the boat that we booked it with (booking with a very friendly woman called Wan on the boat from Phi Phi to Lanta is therefore NOT recommended!)
