This January, we went to Thailand for the fourth time, and to Ko lanta for the second time. We had booked two weeks in a delux bungalow, and loved it. Breakfast ok, poolbar menu a bit booring - but you have the beach with numerous restaurants and bars minutes away, so you have an option for lunch.
I have never experienced a soft bed in Thailand - no exception this time. And no surprise - you get used to it. This is how it is!
We experienced however a very friendly and serviceminded staff, and the bugalow was cleaned to our satisfaction every day. The pool- areea is great, especially if you travel with kids - as we did. But the best part: the bungalows are located so close to the bach, that you can walk barefoot down to the beach in the evening, and find the most beautiful sunset and the best restaurant on the beach - Thai Cat - just 100 metres away.
After two weeks at Lanta Resort, we had booked one week at Kata beach on Phuket - at Kata Poolside Resort. What a dissapointment!!!!! Kata beach was so over crowded, so busy and the room so depressing - that we packed our luggage after two nights - and went BACK to Lanta Resort for our last 5 days. This time we got a delux room with poolaccess - almost even better than the bungalow the previous two weeks!
The resort also had a kids club, with actvities in the morning, the middle of the day - and sometimes also in the early afternoon - wich is perfect if you travel with kids. Gives the partents som relaxing alone- time.
I can also recommend the massage - facilities on the resort, just by the pool. Nice and friendly ladies. A bit more expencive than similar massages on the beach - but worth it.
Tha reosrt is located on quite a big area, but kept clean and with well kept gardens with flowers and pathways, throughout the area and down to the beach.
We will go there again - no doubt!
