“Magical views; breathy, comfortable rooms”
Reviewed 23 May 2013

We stayed only one night at Lareena resort. The resort is right on the water, decorated in a funky/Thai style with comfortable outside seating, restaurant, bar, and open lobby. The room was unusually huge. The bathroom was roomy and clean. They gave us good quality towels. We spent quite some time on the water terrace watching sunrise. I wasn't impressed with breakfast - eggs, white bread, a slice of bacon, two sausages, and coffee. But the location, the ease of getting to the island from Pattaya, the welcoming atmosphere were the winning factors. The resort provides free wifi (working!). There are plenty of little places to eat. You can hire tuk-tuk to get to quite beaches away from tourists - just ask at the front desk. I wish we stayed longer. Will be back if I visit the island again.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room to get better views in the morning.

Room was nice and comfortable, clean, quite big, balcony with seaview. Very nice and quiet place, very lovely stuff, helpful and friendly. but would come back anytime. enjoyed the food, breakfast was served bit late, but no problem.
lovely hotel right on the waters edge, so relaxing. i traveled alone but would be so romantic to travel as a couple here. the soft lighting and loving music in the evenings amazing, takes you into a world you cant image book it today expericience for yourself. one thing i would say is this area is a couple area and not for the solo traveler really. would of been nice to be with a loved one.

40 mins from Bali Hai Pier to Koh Larn (Na Ban Pier). You will see nice colorful building next to Na Ban Pier, that's Lareena Resort

Stayed here for two nights. Got the best room with the best view (the corner room that has private terrace and directly face the pier).

The location is very close to Na Ban pier (3 mins by walk). We can watch the pier activites there (very nice for me), except the boat horn. 7 eleven is very near and it's very convenient.

To reach the beaches, you have to rent a scooter. 5-10 mins to reach the beaches.

It has nice restaurant with various menu and wonderful taste.

Well 2nd trip to Thailand and wanted to escape the hustle and bustle of Pattaya with my gf, so we went to Koh Larn. We saw this resort on the way in on the ferry and thought it looked very "quaint" and would love to stay there sometime.
Me and my gf were only enjoying Koh Larn for the day , but we did decide to bring our friends over next time and stay overnight. And boy I am glad we did.

We made reservations easily using the English phone number stated on website. Price was Extremely economical for the room we had. Check-in was painless. They even had scooters on site that we could rent for a very good price. New scooters too...:)

Our room was Very spacious with a big balcony with furnishings that were very relaxing. The canopy bed was nice and the bathroom served its purpose. What made this great was the outside relaxing ,eating area. They have sit down tables that are really comfortable with pillows and cushions. the food was great and the drinks were very reasonably priced.

i will definitely be back to this resort...

Room Tip: The 1st room on the left is huge with big balcony...

Getaway from Pattaya. Bali Hai peer in South Pattaya. Take the ferry and 40 minutes later you'll enter Lareena. Next to the peer, right behind the islands only 7 Eleven on the island. Lareena is well designed. Lovely colour- combninations
Great view on Pattaya/ Jomtien skyline, the sea and the peer.

Room Tip: Closer to the peer menas more noise. Sometimes at night the work goes on. Had a deluxe room. Spaciou...

we stayed at the Lareena Resort on Koh Larn, Thailand for 2 nights.
the word "resort" is an overstatement.
it is right next to the ferry pier, which makes it convenient until you hear the ferry horn go off every hour during peak travel. (starts at 6:30 AM.)
the rooms are decent, but there are mosquitoes. bring plenty of OFF.
there is AC and hot water.
the hotel is about 5-10 minute scooter or cab ride to any beach. i.e. there isn't any decent beach within walking distance.
the food at the resort, except for the breakfast (which was eggs and bacon) is very good and relatively cheap.

Room Tip: Don't stay unless you are ok with regular ferry horn.

After 4 nights in the crowded city of Pattaya, i spend one night on Koh Larn Island. It took me about 35minute on wooden boat to across the sea to reach Lareena Resort. My room is specious and beautiful, faced to the beach it was very romantic when it gets dark with decoration of it property and listen to the wave of the sea. Food at it restaurant (Hot pot Tom Yam sea Fish) was very delicious that served by Thai style. Convenience store is available for 24H. I would recommend this resort for young couple and family to stay here and I definitely came to this resort again.

Bravo Lareena, cheer..
