“fabulous!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2014

what can i say, we stopped here for 6 nights with out even booking room, so we took a chance they would have space, which they did!
omg! what a fab place it was as well, there were four of us staying in these lovely appartments, we had a choice of a bungalow but we chose the other instead, lovely four poster beds with the nets, lovely jacuzzi as well with a very spacious shower as well, we had our own pool as well as there was never anyone else about, we were two minutes from the beach so you could have lovely long walks along there, we were also given a free foot & reflexoligy massage which was just lovely, also we had a free meal in the resteraunt for two nights, the staff were lovely & friendly, some could speak little english!
the duty manager was so nice she spoke to us everyday at breakfast, was always happy to help with anything we asked for, lovely lady!
also the manager (sorry forgot his name) spoke perfect english so that was very helpful at times.
such a nice man too, the beach was so long & sandy and lovely to walk along in the hot sun.
i would deffinately recomend a stay here....

We stayed in a Family bungalow in February and enjoyed our stay! The room was spacious and quiet. We spent a lot of time by the bigger pool (because children loved that pool) and most of the time we were the only ones there despite of high season.

We had problems with sink and toilet, but hotel staff came to repair issues within few minutes from our request.

Breakfast was excellent with six different fresh fruits ans seaview.

One suggestion for management: we would like to have stayed in a family room with two separate bedrooms. I heard other families would have appreciated this option also. You have rooms for about 70 square meters, but they are all one space.

We stayed for 3 nights, and we enjoyed every minute of it. Warm welcome at reception and we absolutely loved our bungalow, right next to one of the pool areas and beach. We were lucky enough to have wifi access while in our room, but its good access in public areas in general. Location is great, staff is friendly and the food is delicious. They had their annual staff party April 26, as a tradition since 2001, so the staff is rewarded for their hard work, which in my opinion is a good sign.

Klao dang beach is beautiful and mellow, and perfect area to unwind. The Spa at the resort is excellent, and well worth the extra bahts.

I recommend this resort and would love to come back in the future.

Good and express check ins. Good Grand delux rooms closest to the sea. Large and clean but needs some renovation. Use the mosquito net around the bed. Good swimming pools. Good beach. Breakfast ok, but not more. good location.Nice hotel, recommended.

Recently on a working trip in Ko Lanta with my family we stayed at the Royal Lanta in Klong Dao beach in the north part of the island. We had a larger room which was excellent for the kids to move around. We like the Thai style decoration and the wooden floors. The beds were comfortable and the quality of the room was very good and in good state.

Breakfast is served at the restaurant overlooking the beach which is nice, there are two swimming pool and the staff was friendly and helpful. There are loads of options for food and shopping in the area. The beach is long and great for kids as there are no big waves.

The only thing I found they could improve is have internet access from the rooms at the since the only places were you have a signal is at the common areas.

Great place for families in a beautiful island.

Room Tip: We had a deluxe room which was large and about 50 meters from the restaurant area and beach.

Lanta was all booked, the only hotel we could find for an evening is the Royal Lanta. Rooms very spacious but old and very dirty especially. Unqualified staff (the waiter could not find the number of the room that we had been assigned). At the reception demanded payment in advance. In the room there was no telephone to communicate with the front desk. CONNECTION interent only in public areas. Towels punctured and stained and the bathroom animal excrements: all the "modest" sum of 5,300 baht.

I read several reviews here and many seemed disapointed with the restaurant... We've just arrived here yesterday, so you could question our opinion. However, we got it booked with a total roundtrip and this is our last stay and actually we're supprised, in a positive way. The room is surely okay, bathroom looks like it's just been renovated and looks great! Breakfast was fine and yesterdays dinner (of local food) was delicious as well... Maybe some other reviewers tried the burgers and pasta? But the Green curry and Hot pan were absolutely great. I also read about people who said the beach is to far away if your close to the reception... Well if a two minute walk seems far to you... You should just go back sitting in front of the tellie eating crisps and doing nothing ;) Overall we think it's a good place in a beautiful enviroment with helpfull staff and close to the beach and some usefull shops!
