After spending a week in Lanta we were expecting a typical resort with open green space, landscaped grounds and low rise buildings. Instead it's simply a large hotel building with a stylish foyer and a pool. It looks quite sterile from the outside but as a hotel the Buri Tara is very nice.
The rooms are new and tastefully decorated, the bathroom is exceptionally nice, and the bed comes with a duvet and pool towels. Above all it is very clean. The pool is surrounded by the hotel building so only gets sun for part of the day but is still very nice to lounge around.
The buffet breakfast is fantastic, great selection with eggs cooked to order. Otherwise we didn't eat at the restaurant, for our other meals we walked into Ao Nang. There's also a great outdoor area which has 2 or 3 thai restaurants that only open at night - cheap and tasty ! It's about 5min walk on the way to Ao Nang centre.
The location is ok, 50metres off the main road and a 10-15min walk to Ao Nang centre (or 20baht/person via tuk tuk). It's close to the beach however there aren't nice beaches in Ao Nang, it's a very picturesque area but the beach itself is muddy and not the best for swimming. We wanted to stay at Railay instead but Railay has limited accommodation options and more expensive. Instead we stayed in Buri Tara and took day trips to Railay/Pranang via long tail boats.
Tip: We found Pranang beach to be the best beach in Krabi. It's very busy but still very very beautiful. If you buy return ticket from Ao Nang the long tail will cost 100 each way, however if you buy the return trip separately from Pranang back to Ao Nang it costs 80 baht only. Warning: you will have to wade through water to get onto the long tail boat.
