“Fun hotel right on the best beach on Koh Lanta, plus a pool”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2013 via mobile

Our stay at Koh Lanta Nice Beach Resort has been a highlight for us among 5 months of traveling - and it was the people who made it so. Rooms are average - a little bit worn. Garden rooms (at back of property) are nicely spaced, whereas higher priced rooms near beach are jammed tightly together. Beach is gorgeous. Pool is decent enough. It was a tough decision rating the food - the included breakfast is very ordinary - we skipped it and ate elsewhere some mornings. But ordering lunch or dinner from the restaurant and the food was great!! At night the restaurant had a nice vibe going - busy enough, good beach music playing, dance show on Tuesday nights, and very-fun waitresses and serving staff who help lift the mood. The people make the place!! For the 100 feet difference in proximity to the beach, I don't think the breakfast or the pool area are good enough to support the price tag of the premium rooms. But the garden bungalows at the back are nicely set out and great value!

Centrally located on both Klong Nin beach and Koh Lanta we had a very pleasant stay in the garden cottages. Unlike most Thai beach islands the residents of Lanta are mostly Muslim and there have been some brakes put on tourism. No noisy disco bars or persistent beach vendors here, so perfect for families. The mostly Muslim staff were very friendly to us, helping with some trip planning and introducing us to their cute children, some of whom participated in the folk night's dancing.
The beach sand is squeaky wonderful and the water warm and clear. No rocks, sticks, weed or barnacles to deal with. At night there are some nice places down the beach to hear some acoustic live music..nothing raucous. You have to watch yourself in the water because the sun not only reflects from the waves but also the white sandy bottom - easy to burn quickly.
The pool was nice too, with a view to the restaurant and beach. We stayed across the road in the 'garden cottages' and I'm glad we did as it was pleasant to have your own little spot tucked back there. We would take breaks on our balcony to read and being a birder I enjoyed the activity in the trees. There is a morning call to prayer in the distance around 5am that I woke up to and my family didn't. It wouldn't last long. Next comes the bird trills at first light. Insect sound comes at dusk...so a good place for nature lovers. The cottages are side by side duplexes, so noise would be relative to who is staying next to you. It is nice to walk south on the beach as the sun starts to sink and find a place to enjoy it with others. Great having that west view. My wife enjoyed a 300 baht hour 'full' massage by the sea at our resort. The staff helped with my snorkel tour and exit arrangements. From the cabanas it is about a 15 minute walk back to the 7-11 and shops/ATM. we'd flag a motorcycle taxi if we were lazy or it was too hot. I would gladly return if I wanted a calm few beach days. As mentioned by others, a few new umbrellas and chairs would be a good idea for both pool and beach.

Room Tip: If you don't feel you have to be right by the pool with little kids, or next to the beach and re...

Stayed 2 nights on the otherside of the road, the shower area and bedroom are a bit tired. Nice and quiet at night away from the beach, although we could hear our attached neighbours a bit too clearly. We looked at upgrading to beachfront, but were not willing to pay an extra bht1500 per night! That said we found the staff very friendly and thoroughly enjoyed the food and atmosphere at the restaurant, I had the best pad thai at nice beach resort. "

We enjoyed our stay here

Positives
Great location- the beach is long white and clean with great swimming and nice clear water. Our room had a nice pool and beach view (superior).
Easy reach of many shops and restaurants but still quiet at night.
We ate several really nice meals here- fish barbeque, curry, pad thai.

Possible negatives
Some people may find the rooms basic, they were fine for us. In general the prices in the islands are higher than you pay elsewhere so don't expect any luxury. Still it was clean, and comfy beds, nice to have a fridge and kettle too.

Breakfast is not up to scratch and come early if you want to eat!

Room Tip: Worth the money for poolside/sea side

The area is nice but the hotel is pretty dingy

Go more south to find more beautiful beaches and better places to stay if you like a quiet beautiful beach experience

The bathroom has mold and they cleaned our room and left the door wide open so when we came back 3 hours later anyone could have gotten into our room.

Plenty of nicer hotels nearby to stay.

We were really disappointed and have never eaten so bad in Thailand before. The food was not warm, it was handed out in 2 minutes - so was it microwaved? Tasteless and dull. No service even though there were a huge staff. No, we are not going back. And frankly, there are so many nice places around nearby you can go to instead of this sloppy place.

Wonderful staff, fantastic location and beach.

The rooms are basic but you get what you pay for. It is not a 3-5* hotel so do not go expecting it to be. The room is clean and beds made every day if you wish. The shower isn't the most powerful but generally it's well kept.

The food in the restaurant is lovely and I would recommend Lanta Nice Beach to friends who would like a relaxing chilled out holiday.
