Lanta Palm Beach Resort
Ranked #68 of 84 Hotels in Ko Lanta
Reviewed January 30, 2013 via mobile

Best thing about this place is that it is on the beach and in the middle of a lot of amenities. I would suggest checking out the hotels nearby before checking in here.

The rooms are a bit grubby and dilapidated, and the price reflects the beach front location, while hotels just behind have no less a nice location but are cheaper.

Bathrooms were pretty grim. We stayed first for 4 nights in a fan room and then 2 nights in air-con room. Both were grim. Wardrobes both stank so we didn't use them. Ants all over the place ... yes I know it's a tropical beach, but there are ways to reduce ant trails!

Staff friendly and helpful. Fresh water and toilet paper each day but no clean towels or bedding during 4 days in fan room.

I stayed here for four nights and I loved it. The location is great and everything's really clean and cosy (not noisy at all). The staff was helpful and the atmosphere there was relaxed. I would definitely stay there again!

Overall a good experience and a great value.

We visited at the very beginning of the tourist season. By the appearance of the room and resort it had been left untended since the end of last tourist season. Rather than use the off season to clean and do maintenance they started that process while starting high season. The first room was unacceptable-dirty, burnt out light, sink didn't work properly and the shower was weak. We found and tipped the cleaning woman 50 baht and once she was done it was much better. After the first night we requested an upgraded to a larger room and found it much nicer. Def recommend getting the larger rooms. The owners were pretty unhelpful when it came to changing the room and it took two days

In general it felt like the owners cared little about the resort which I find insane. They have a beautiful location and the bungalows are nice. The place just badly needs active management. I imagine the issue is that during most of high season they're full so it's easy to develop an complacent attitude.

All that being said, the beach is stunning and the bungalows are 50 meters off the beach. The restaurant on the beach is very good. When the days catch comes in they set up a grill station on the beach with the fresh seafood displayed on ice. We spent several evenings relaxing in their cabanas spending several hours drinking and eating while watching the sun set.

The resort is also in great location to experience the entire island.

While much of my review was negative I'll likely be back. You really can't beat the price, location or the beach. Just frustrating to see the owners not taking fairly simple steps to make their resort something really special.

Room Tip: Go with the more expensive rooms. We started with the 1000 baht room and upgrade to, I think, the 1...

Muslim family running the place could really care less. They were no where to be found most of the time at reception. The beach was really nice but I'd stay somewhere else. When we were trying to book a ferry to leave they were useless. Told us the ferry didn't run. We found out at the bar of the next resort that night that the ferry was indeed running and they made a reservation for us for the next day.

Skip this place as it is overpriced with very unfriendly, unhelpful staff.

On the best part of the best beach Long Beach)of Koh Lanta. The manky bathroom, lack of room safe, no tea/coffee/kettle or fridge, did not spoil our stay. 3om from the beach. Ate at the very cheap on site restaurant every night and did not have a bad meal. Cheapdrinks, fire show 3/4 nights a week.
Free beach cabanas, loungers 110tb, plenty of shade with the trees. Reception good for booking trips/ferries.
Furniture at the restaurant and bar rustic at best.
Would stay there again despite the manky bathroom.

Room Tip: Upgrade not worth it. Air con in cheaper rooms is ok

stayed here for 3 nights and got a good price of 800baht each and 700 for the last night. fan room which was ok really and not too hot. PROS.. right on the beach... nice little huts to seat four or more people along the beach, quiet area so plenty of room on the beach.
CONS--- lots of ants in the bathroom. lots of lizards but they didnt bother us! service wasnt brilliant there were a number of times we were left waiting for food drinks etc. also we kept being offered to go for a 'smoke' which i didnt like. but other than that they were friendly and not pushy about it. there were a lot of cats about in the food area etc which i think was off putting to some people. we did not get our room cleaned eveyday either which was a bit annoying due to the amount of ants in there it could have done with it!!
