We stayed at La Laanta for 12 nights in April. We decided on this resort , having read all the rave reviews on TA. We were not disappointed. The beach is beautiful and provides a spectacular vista with the green rain forest as a backdrop. The water is crystal clear and perfect for swimming. Our bungalow was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The food was great and the cocktails that Mackey made for us every night were ‘to die for’. However, as per previous reviews , what makes this resort special is the people that run it. Patrick, June, Tony and Kong were the perfect hosts. They really know how to look after their guests and are very attentive to all your needs. My one reservation when booking La Laanta was that it might be too remote and quiet for 12 nights, but we hired motorbikes and toured the island for a couple of days , went snorkelling to Koh Rok [ a must do] and went on walks to the National Marine park and to the other nearby beaches. We never felt the need to go anywhere else in the evening, as the restaurant food was great and the ambiance created by Patrick and Mackey along with our fellow tourists was all we needed. We had a wonderful evening to celebrate the Thai New Year [Songkran]. The owners provided a free barbecue with every type of seafood you could think of. As is the tradition for Songkran we were invited to join in the ‘water fights’ with all the Thai people, down from Bangkok for the New Year’s celebration. We all ended up at the end of the evening , in the swimming pool fully clothed being served drinks by Mackay.
To summarize If you want a resort for night clubbing / shopping stay away . La Laanta is perfect if you want a peaceful, relaxing, entertaining holiday with a bit of adventure thrown in. We wil definitely be back.
