Just found this island &......

Hi all,

Just stumbled upon this island and would love to hear more.....

Looking for gorg resort & beach ( arnt we all .... ) we are a couple with a 7 yr old and like to walk out for lunches and dinners from time to time.

Looking at mid March.

Which is the best way to get there and thinking of moving to K Lanta next, is this doable ???

Thanks

The transport is quite easy as long as its daytime. Getting to Lanta (apart from a hire) is via Koh Yao Noi or going back to Phuket Town then ferry via Phi Phi.

No tagging of the pictures but...The photos at the top of this set are around "Elixir" in the southof Yai. Middle photo are Noi. Near the end of the set is "Betterview" in the north end of the island. There are a few more hotels around the island but we havn`t stayed in any others, yet. The whole island is very not touristy so it`s not so easy just to pop out for a meal, it`s more of a little hike sometimes.

Loved it and going back. (but we don`t have kids to entertain)

Stayed in both and a few days up in Koh Yao Noi. :-) both were great, but it was low season and Elixir felt big and empty, Betterview was just 5 rooms at the time felt more cosy. There should be more people around in March.

There are a few other hotels/resorts/hammocks on the island, I guess all of them have good and bad points depending on what your are after. The islands, unspoilt traditional Thai Muslim, are worth a visit, especially if the idea of Phuket turns you off.
