“no privacy and very noise over the late evening and morning”
Reviewed March 20, 2012

Everything is to find cheaper and better on the beach!

Take a tuk tuk and check it out many, many little resorts around "longer beach". We had a over night stay in the guest house which was ok, but simply the point that it was very, very noise the hold night and also in the early morning was a minus.
We moved because there was no possibility for relaxing in the private room area.
The building need asap repairs and you get the feeling the floor will collaps soon and not hold on.
Need to do something with the bath rooms and the hold complex.

Yes the dog is nice and friendly staff.... but check the beach!

First of all, thank you for your review. We are always appreciated a customer comment. However, I'm afraid that some of the point of view may be a little bit too exaggerate. Our guest house is basically away from the market even though it is located in the town. We provide the relax area in the front and the back next to the sea for people who seek the private time for relax and the front lounge is one of the most people favorite to hang out and enjoy exchange the travel experience with other travellers. The music is always Ambient Lounge and easy listening. Unfortunately, some guests might have seek the serenity place like beach quiet cast away and not many travellers who enjoy a little chit chat with others.

About the floor, we are old fashion house which built of wood. This house is the Chinese old classic style on the sea. Obviously, if you are looking for the new modern building, your demand will never match our accomodation. We always take the maintenance seriously and we could ensure that the floor will never fall down and strong enough to stay on.

Thank you very much. We hope that your review is one of the important feedback and we will take it to improve the accomodation.

Great value bungalows set close to the beach.. A nice swimming pool to use hwen the tide is out as then it is too rocky to swim; great a high tide though. You can get a fan room with hot shower, refrigerator nuce balcony in high season for 700 baht. A good deal at a busy time of year! AIR CON AVAILABLE ALSO.

The bar and restaurant are very affordable , lovely friendy staff throughout the resort...if they are full when you arrive they have more bungalows and a 2nd pool next door! Look for the guy holding up the sign when you get off the ferry for New Beach Bungalows....

We are so sorry to say this review is not for our guest house. We are not located in klong klong and we are not New Beach bungalows resort. Sorry I think this guy posted the review on the wrong place. We are Lanta Lantern Guest House on Saladan town of koh Lanta. By the way, we would definitely be glad if you could come over to stay with us for the next time. :) koh Lanta and us are always welcome everybody. Kob khun kha.

We stay in Lanta Lantern for two days and we loved it. The relaxing atmosphere with the shishas, the good music they play in the living room, the really nice owners and workers always ready to help you with some information or to talk to you about their culture... we could have stayed there for weeks
i really recommend this place to stay in ko lanta, especially if you want to be close to the pier and visit from here the rest of the islands.

I arrived in Ko Lanta without any bookings and just found Lanta Lantern by coincidence after walking around in Saladan for a while, and deciding to stay there, because of the inviting lounge and all the tasty shishas there. First I wanted to stay just a night or two, but it became more than a week in the end. Definitely the best guesthouse on the whole island! Say hello to Jill, the lovely playful dog, when you get there!
