We stayed here for just under a week, in a clean, though somewhat dated room (bamboo thatched walls, smelled a bit stale from the AC), with a nice clean functioning bathroom.
All rooms have a garden view except the beach villa (only 1 of those), and are split into broadly 2 groups: the newly renovated ones, and those which are a bit dated (we stayed in the latter and it was fine, but less so given the price). Booked via their website, with a price per night just around 2,000 THB. Breakfast was included, though it's western fare and sits in a buffet style setup from 7 to 10. Be sure to order fresh food if you come towards the end. The restaurant in the evening is good, though pricy compared with all other alternatives we saw on the beach and in saladan.
The resort is right on long beach, about 7-10min drive from Saladan main town (where boats arrive). Having been around the island on a motorbike we hired from the resort (300 THB per day which is also relatively expensive for Lanta), long beach is definitely one of the best beaches: good swimming depth, clean, scenic, with excellent facilities /food places etc..
All in all, it's a good place, albeit on the pricy side of things (rooms, food, bike rental all at the top end of price ranges). A
fter the first evening with dinner at the resort and breakfast the following day, we chose to eat our meals elsewhere for the remainder of the week. We mainly hung out at "somewhere else", a close by family-run operation on the beach. Looking at their upper end rooms with aircon, we would stay there if coming back to Lanta - as it's much better value.
