We've been to Lanta no less than 7 times over 8 years!! We've watched it change from a backpackers hideaway to a family island, and it still retains most of its beauty and charm! It is more touristy now, with the tailors and souvenir shops like Phuket, but it's still a wonderful place to visit!
We've stayed at LD, Arrow and Funky during this visits, all if which have been for 3 weeks at a time and my boyfriend stayed at Arrow for 3 months in 2005! We keep going back to Funky because its reasonably priced, the garden bungalows are large and they are quiet. We never choose the aircon ones, the fan is fine. They also have hot water and a big fridge. The beds are typical of Thailand, they are hard, but we like that! The rooms are cleaned regularly, the cleaners live at the end of the row of bungalows. If you feel your room needs a clean, or you want new towels, go and ask them, they don't bite! They come along with a trolley and empty the bins every morning and sweep the steps to the bungalow.
The restaurant isn't the greatest, we always eat at Somewhere Else, but for their rooms, they are cheap and good! You will be treated as you treat them, worth remembering!!
