Me and my family with two young kids (a 5 months and a 2year old) stayed 10 days at La Laanta in the beginning of January 2009. We're happy to recommend this place to anyone who's looking for a relaxing stay. If u are a party animal, maybe this is not the best place to stay.
First of all, thank u Patrick for helping us finding our sons teddy bear that we forgot. And also to find a Swedish traveller that could bring it back to Sweden so that our son now can go to sleep without missing his favourite. That's what I call service!
Back to LaLaanta. Even if it was fully booked and the staff had been really busy with guests over x-mas an new year we felt very well taken care off. First a big private car picked us up at the air port and the driver served us with both snacks and DVDs for the kids. The trip from Krabi air port takes a few hours so be prepared if u go with children.
At the arrival we were greeted by lovely friendly staff in a very relaxed and informal athmosphere. We stayed at one of the Horizon Gaze Villas and it was perfect for our family. Easily fitted a baby cot too.
The beach is just perfect and since LaLaanta is the last resort b4 the national park it was less tourists and hardly any beach vendors than u r used to see. The water was crystal clear and clean.
The food was good, (we've been living in Asia for 3 yrs so kid of picky) but maybe a bit too adjusted to please Europeans, not so spicy that means. We also tried the next door neighbours resturants and if u stay for a longer time it's a good alternetive to get som variation. And u don´t get ruined by eating at La Laanta - if the owners wanted to, they could have squeeze every penny of u, but they don't.
LaLaanta is a quiet place and moste of the guests that we met were couples, quite a few on their honney moon. I guess our family made some noice and some guests were a bit annoyed with the two year old running around, but the staff was just great with him.
They also helped us out when we needed to go to the hospital for a check up, no problems fixing transport and a driver.
Since both me and my husband likes jogging we went out early mornings for some run and u can find a track wherever u want, hardly any traffic and u met some monkeys and elephants. But it's almost too hot in January to be jogging.
Ok, now u go and try this place out!
