We had booked a room at this hotel for our stay at Koh Lanta, believing this was a beach front facility. Maybe we didn´t study the information good enough, but this is a "backyard"-hotel. We think they have done a great job with the place and it looks very good to be what it is, but with our 2 girls of 2 and 4 years we really wanted a place closer to the beach. That been said; the beach is only a very short walk away. The closest beach is very rocky, so it is a 15 minute walk to were the beach is suitable for swimming.
Our room was a 2 bedroom one (the biggest of the hotel). The room was really dark without windows letting any daylight through. Apparently there is a mosque pretty close which is somewhat disturbing in the morning.
We really want to express our gratitude to the staff. Thank you so much for your service! We had done a mistake booking this hotel and had paid everything upfront. However the managers at Ancient Realm were very understanding and were willing to refund our payment. The money has been wired back to us and we thank you for being so understanding and service minded. Our vacation turned out fantastic. Our advice is to not book ahead when traveling in Thailand, or at least don´t book more than a night or two. We traveled at high season, but availability was not a problem at all.
