“Loved Mook Lanta”
Reviewed April 19, 2007

I stayed here with my Mum and loved it. Found it after a miserable night at Riviera, so it was also a huge relief. Stunning gardens, no beach front bungalows but the beach is about 2 minutes away it makes no difference. Right next to amazing massages nr the Sanctuary. Quiet
end of Long Beach.

Only thing is that at night I found it a bit scary walking across the
rocks to get to the busier end of Long Beach - which you have to if you a looking for anything a bit livelier, as you are a little cut
off from things here. But perfect as I was with my Mum and we were never disturbed at night. If i went back with friends I might want to be somewhere a little more lively.

Food is amazing, probably one of the best meals we had in Koh Lanta so visit the restaurant even if you dont stay here. It is cooked by a delightful friendly couple.

Manager sorts out everything you could possibly need. Its all very relaxed - you pay him for it all at the end of your stay.

Other reviews are correct, your rooms dont get cleaned every day - they could have been a bit more, but am sure they would if you asked.

Stayed February 2007

This was a pleasant resort overall with spacious rooms, fully functioning air-conditioning and a lovely terrace to each bungalow to look out onto the garden. The staff spoke decent english and were helpful. It's located within walking distance to good eating places and 2 of the hippest clubs (Earth Bar & Opium).

A few things to note though:
1. The open air toilet/bathroom might seem interesting but when you're using this at night, the light tends to attract insects of all sorts and unless you don't mind taking a shower with bugs and flying cockroaches, you should reconsider getting this resort.
2. The beach directly in front of the resort was rocky. You have to walk further north to get clear sandy beaches.
3. There is no beach bar here. You've to go to the neighbouring resort's bar, granted it's only a minute's walk away.
4. Towels aren't changed daily. But if you ask the staff for a new set, they'll willing give it to you.
5. The television occasionally switches itself off and there doesn't seem to be any hot water after midnight and in the early morning.

Overall, Mook Lanta was a good stay with fully working airconditioning, english TV channels and spacious rooms for more than a couple of luggages. The garden view is beautiful although all 12 bungalows seemed to be of the garden view variety. There weren't any beach front huts at all so don't try booking one of those, chances are you might just be paying for a bigger room without any view of the sea. The staff spoke decent english and was extremely helpful.

It costs abt 50 baht/person for a "tuktuk", or cab, from the pier to the resort.

There were a few little nitty gritties that could have been improved though. Firstly, if you like me, were seduced by the tropical idea of an open-air toilet/bathroom, think abt what your holiday schedule is like. If you're likely to return back to your resort late at night to take a shower, the light attracts quite a few bugs and if you're squeamish (as I am) abt insects and flying cockroaches joining you for a bath, perhaps this isn't the best resort. Also, the hot water heater didn't seem to work late at night and in the early morning. You aren't provided with a fresh change of towels daily, but if you ask the staff for these, they'll be glad to give you new sets. Also, I got the impression the sheets weren't changed daily, they were just made. The beach directly in front of the resort was full of rocks, be prepared to walk to another section of the beach if you want a sandy beach. Also there isn't a beach bar at the resort, you have to walk (a short distance) to the neighbouring marina resort's beach bar. If these don't bother you, then bya ll means, get Mook Lanta! It's within walking distance (abt 10-15 minutes) to quite a few good restaurants and 2 of the hippest clubs (Earth Bar & Opium).
