Before I give the negative commands, I have to say the people there, apart from this useless girl who messed up the booking, are very nice. They tried to help.
Ok, so we were very happy to be able to find a place for everyone at the last minutes. We are there with my husbands parents and the kids. When we arrive, we were so upset to find out that there is no lift (Not mention in the website), and my father in laws had a broken leg. Then we are found out the room is very small, far from what they look like in the photos. My bad, I worked in this field, I should have know better. Then we have to argued that they are not giving us enough towels, we are there with kids...no, only the towels with those who paid. Then the baby cot that we paid for did not come with bed sheet, just plastic mat. I was really angry that they are so stingy, what kind of service is that? Anyway, they promised to upgrade us because someone already booked out room for the last 2 days. Then when the day came, they actually down graded us and wished that we would never found out. The room they transferred us to was much cheaper, not the "luxury" one they promised. I had to deal with the new staffs who is nice but did not know anything about it. And the bloody girl who doubled booking went on holiday.
Anyway, not for families, a bit far from the sea, too expensive for what they are, no idea about service.

Most of the area is still in the pure nature. If you drive along the road, you will see the sea on one side and the mountains on the other side. Koh Lanta can be such a good choice for a tourist as there are plenty activities such as snorkeling, diving, coral reef scuba, fishing tour, trekking or elephant trekking to water fall, mangrove forest tour, hot spring and emerald pond trip, daily boat trip to all around islands and cave, kayaking and sightseeing, Lanta old town and lifestyle visiting, and many more. Koh Lanta will never become over-crowded as it is a long island and it has more than 10 beaches and so the tourists and resorts spread along the coastline and do not squeeze in one place. We are sure that coming here will make you have the most fun and beautiful holiday. ... more less
