We loved Anda Lanta resort and would highly recommend it – as long as you like to be away from it all in a quiet and open space, and can eat at the same place consistently without getting bored.
The thing to know is that it’s about half an hour from the Koh Lanta pier south to get to Anda Lanta. Then you need to hire a scooter or car if you want to get out by yourself or pay 100 Baht each way for the hotel car to take you to a local restaurant.
The beach is stunning and there are only a few other places with guests to have to share it with. It was delightful to go for a post breakfast beach walk and be one of about 8 people on the sand. So swimming into the sea was like being a special guest of the sea spirit who invites you to be his precious inhabitant. (Sorry to wax so poetic but it was just lovely and unique!)
The pool was lovely too, with two smaller pools for little children so the adults could swim with pleasure.
My husband and I had a Cottage in the garden towards the back. The room was large and dark and peaceful – you couldn’t hear a noise during the night once the geckos had said goodnight.
The bed was luxurious and the bathroom and fittings were fine. The TV didn’t work but we didn’t go there to watch TV.
We thought some of the rooms at the front would have been exposed to constant people walking past and looking at them so we were happy to be up the back.
The wireless internet was off ,more than on, but actually worked best in the room where you need it.
The breakfast was a terrific buffet – especially compared with other places we stayed where we paid a lot more. The staff are happy and helpful. We ate our first lunch in the resort but then ate at the “Take It Easy Bar” to the left up the beach which had a great seafood barbeque most nights. The “Sunset Bar” at the far left of the beach was cute and the sunset view great but the food was just ok.
We got the resort car to take us out to dinner at the “Same Same But Different” restaurant over the hill and up the road. Wished we hadn’t! They were booked out but had lost our booking. The service was really bad all up.
We scootered back into the main town our second day so that we could book for our dives with Dive And Relax which is an excellent dive centre which has its office at Castaways Resort. As we walked through the small and close together cottages at Castaways we were very glad to know we had our spacious Anda Lanta resort to return to. We were even gladder when we saw how crowded their beach was and how shallow the water at low tide. The Anda Lanta Cove always had enough water to get immersed into.
We highly recommend Anda Lanta and would be happy to return!
