My boyfriend and I are backpackers at the moment and we had a horrible place in Phi Phi so when we decided to stay 5 days on Ko Lanta we wanted it to be a nice place and the Ananda Lanta most certainly was.
Are very crisp and clean with a built in aircon, private bathroom and a balcony that looks out onto the front of the hotel and I am pretty sure most of them have a bit of an ocean view. You get beach/pool towels as well as bath towels provided and the room is cleaned on a daily basis.
They were all very helpful, always saying good morning or good night and offered to carry my very heavy rucksack up the stairs to the room or from the car to the front desk.
Is an infinity pool and although there are only about 16 sun beds around the pool it was never packed and you could always find one free even at 2pm.
This is buffet style, and has eggs made to order (by a little guy on an egg station) sausages, toast, fruit, cereal and drinks.
Like most resorts in Ko Lanta there isn't a lot nearby other than a handful of restaurants and a few souvenir shops. The main shopping area is at the pier and restaurants are dotted all over at the different beach areas. We hired a scooter from the hotel for 250BHT a day and went all over trying different restaurants. You can walk to the main pier but it would take about 30 mins.
The beach is less than 100m away and you can take a short cut through the Adaman Resort and use their facilities as well as they are partner resorts but to be honest the Ananda is far better.
The only negative things I have to say about this place is no free wifi and what they charge for it is expensive even for Thailand. Although there were bars nearby that provided free wifi with a purchase of a drink etc. Secondly the shower pressure wasn't fabulous. This said we would both return to this place in a heartbeat!
