Klong Jark Bungalows
Ranked #72 of 217 Speciality Lodging in Ko Lanta
Reviewed 22 April 2010

We were completely taken by surprise after reading the first two positive reviews on this place because in our 3 months of travelling through South East Asia (Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam & Malaysia) Klong Jark Bungalows was the WORST accommodation we have ever stayed in. It was overpriced (1000 THB per night) and in shocking condition to say the least. The beachfront unit we stayed in was filthy & smelly, infested with ants and had bits of cardboard taped over holes in the wall in our bathroom. We found the place to be serviced by lazy, rude & disinterested staff except for one poor woman who seemed to be trying her best to make up for this. Whilst we were there we had no running water and soon found out from other guests that this had been a problem for 3 days with no one willing to take ownership of the problem. When a couple of the guests went to complain about the water situation the staff disappeared and those left suddenly couldn’t speak English anymore. This behaviour epitomised the attitude of the staff towards their guests. We were so desperate to leave we ended up booking two nights for more than double the price at the upmarket Anda Lanta further down the beach which was so much nicer! If you are headed to Klong Jark we would recommend staying at Anda-Lanta resort or else check out accommodation on the neighbouring bays. There is really no need to gamble with a stay at this awful place.

Call me conceited but I have visited a lot more of this type of bungalow-resorts and this one is simply not up to par, sure, it's sitting on a great location, but the staff is just dazed & uninterested (a gang of hooligans is what we called). Driving around you bungalow with a quad at night. Ha !
We payed 1200THB for a beachfront thatched bungalow w/fan. It looked like it was about to collapse. Very dirty and run-down, for this level of accomodation we payed 500 THB on any other Thai beach. (Even on Ko Kradan f.e.)
The food is just like the rest of the hotel : sloppy.

Best food in the bay is Anda Lanta resort, though pricey.
Best place to stay in the bay I would call Last Beach Resort.

Klong Jack Bungalows were my favorite place on my trip to Thailand! The bungalows are clean and basic simple, sat right next to a wonderful beach! A restaurant and a bar are part of the place and they offer extremely good food! All the people that work there were just friendly and if you want to you can join them playing volleyball at the beach in the evening...

Room Tip: Is een heel goede prijs voor 'waar' je logeert! Basic maar de omgeving is onbetaalbaar...
