“Great hotel with lovely surroundings!”
Reviewed 24 November 2013 via mobile

We only stayed for 4 nights, and despite the rain it was a lovely hotel. The reception/ duty manager was very pleasant and couldn't do enough to help, including making a dinner reservation for us.

The hotel bars and restaurants are not cheap, but then with a hotel of this quality it's expected. The breakfast has a good selection and was all good quality. The reggae bar on the beach is worth a trip too for great views.

If staying here we would recommend hiring a car to explore the island as we managed to drive the entire place in a day which was great fun.

If looking for great dining check out either the Red Snapper (15mins drive) or L.Malade (5mins) as both were fantastic options and worth a trip!

This was my 4th hotel in Koh Lanta and overall the only bad one. I booked the pool access room for three days which was great. Unfortunately, hotel management was extremely poor. Having reception call me at 8am on my second day to confirm that I'm checking-out on my third day is a poor decision. There was also some dispute about what I had used from the minibar, but my request to see the list of charged items was inexplicably refused. There were other managerial problems that occurred during my stay which were unacceptable. The food was quite poor too.

Room Tip: Pool access room. Corner ones are the most private.

This is a great spot for a relaxing and quiet break from the world. We stayed for 5 nights in one of the deluxe suites which has a pool entry to itself. Heavenly. From the moment we arrived to a cool welcoming tea and a ride to the rooms, to the moment we left, we had a fabulous time.
The hotel is on a hilly and verdant site with amazing views on all sides of the Andaman sea. The hotel has two restaurants, where breakfast is served is on high (the Peak Restaurant) with amazing 360 degree views. The other restaurant has great views of the private beach.
The food at breakfast was superb (included in our cost) and very worth while getting.
The hotel has a gym which is well appointed with weights equipment and exercise things.
The staff, very welcoming and helpful. Everyone was so friendly.
Food/drinks, a little expensive, but the Ban Saladan town is 5 mins away by tuk-tuk and the food there is cheap and delicious, with a range of restaurants to choose from.
I would definitely go back. Brilliant place, great romantic break, the perfect place to bring your partner/wife.

Room Tip: Go for one of the rooms that has private entrance to the pool. 1122 I think is good.

Landed at pier and was transported to crown in about 10 mins, on arrival was handed a lovely ice cold drink then taken to our pool villa. Wow ! Amazing room with pool access . We went up to top pool to have some lunch with views over the beach it was lovely . We took the golf buggy it really is a hike. I walked it a couple of times in the heat and it killed me.
We hired a scooter from reception for 2 days it cost £9 a day which I later discovered I could have got for about £5 a day if I'd just gone to hotel next door. But we had a great time discovering lanta. We covered the entire island in a day, we went to elephants, waterfalls monkeys( wild mind you ) and a couple of beaches. The next day we went to bottom of Island and stopped at about 5 beaches on the way back and chilled out watching the sunset on the last one. Amazing 2 days and our favourite of the holiday .
The hotel was the most expensive of our holiday but it was the highlight and worth it. Saladan the nearest town has a couple of good restaurants . But shops shut at 9 pm ish . Overall koh lanta is lovely 3/4 days is enough to see everything but there's plenty of nice beaches to laze the days away on if your going for longer.

The hotel is on a beautiful side of koh lanta. Very peaceful and private. You have some great views and all rooms are located within a lush green environment. The reggae bar is fantastic. The private beach is nice but not very large. The staff is really friendly and helpful. On the downside: Prices of food and drinks are rather high but the free shuttle takes you to the nearby village. The spa and laundry service are way too expensive. WiFi connection can't handle Skype very well and we had to call the reception every day for a password. Due to the location, it's not suited for older or disabled travelers. Nevertheless, you will have a fantastic holiday in this hotel!

We got a low season deal and stayed in the lap of luxury. The food, service and environment was excellent. Sitting on the deck overlooking the beach at sunset will be a memory that will stick with me forever.

Sure the setting is nice and the location is on the water. But you have a far distance to walk to the beach from the hotel. I would reccommend renting a scooter but not from hotel who charges almost tripple standard rates. no breakfast included but I knew that, but for what I paid I felt it should be included.Wifi is stable and good and they let us use it free. No shower in the room, this annoys me at 100 euros a night come on. room was large but dated. They need to pick up there socks a little here.
