“Great hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2013

very clean and beautiful rooms especially for the price. Klong Dao beach is just across the street. Great service, cold air conditioner, and breakfast is included. Nice infinity pool perched up on the second floor with great views of the ocean. Our first room smelled a bit like mold, so we were transferred to another room. No Problem!

Room Tip: try and get a room above the pool or above the reception area. rooms on the south end of the buildi...

We stayed at the Ananda Lanta for 11 nights, as we had pre paid prior to the stay - we travelled with another couple and when we arrived we were given adjacent rooms to the left of reception, on the ground floor - my friends immediately had a problem with their room, as it did not appear to have been cleaned and the surfaces were covered with small white insects - the receptionist arranged for the room to be cleaned, but I have to say the cleaning standards remained rather poor for our entire stay. It was also a bit hit and miss whether we were supplied with coffee etc each day, although our friends had no problem with this.
The first night we returned from our evening meal to find that our room smelt unbearably of drains- having holidayed in Thailand a few times previously I am used to this when out and about, but never in a hotel bedroom ! - It was overpowering - I complained about this and the following day both ourselves and our friends were moved to rooms on higher floors, where, although there was an occasional aroma, it was nothing like the smell in the first room.
We noticed that for the rest of our stay, people did not appear to stay in this room longer than an odd night, before being spotted in reception requesting a move.
The rooms are pleasant enough and the bathroom was good with a nice hot shower.
There was a light in the corner of the ceiling in the bedroom which was bright enough for applying make up.
Plenty of storage space - good sized balcony, but no privacy on them - luckily we had lovely neighbours.
Breakfast was fairly good, although there was not very much choice and food often ran out before the end of the breakfast service - we asked for bacon one morning, as it had run out and we were informed that the accountants only allow a set amount to be used - the yoghurt was very good and available most days - no real choice of fruit, same three varieties each day.
The staff were pleasant and the young man who cooked the eggs made every effort to do so to your taste.
There is no hotel bar and I think they are missing out on an opportunity there - it would be nice to have a meeting place at the hotel - the communal areas are very bare and unattractive.
The pool was lovely though and we did not have any problem getting sunbeds and brollies on the couple of occasions we used the pool.
The beach is a few minutes walk across the road and is beautiful - there are no sunbeds, but if you ask in the beach bars they will provide you with deckchairs and a brolly( as long as it is not too windy). You do need to purchase something from them. Our favorite one was the Easy bar and the food there was excellent and very reasonably priced - the staff were lovely and the loo's clean !
The Indian bar next to Easy was a great place for late night drinks on the beach and Pas ( the indian!) does a good fire dance.
For football and a late drink try the Cheeky Monkey bar on the main road, where Bannana, Natalie and the rest will make you feel very welcome - clean loo too! ( not to be confused with the fat monkey, although the food at the fat monkey and the surroundings were excellent and we were made very welcome)
Opposite the Cheeky Monkey Bar there is a helpful travel agency for booking ferries etc - we got a good price for the express ferry to Phuket, which included transport from the pier to Phuket airport - about 1,200 bht each.
Raan on the beach provided us with some lovely evening meals and the staff were very friendly.
Khlong Daow is very close to Saladan which has good shopping and plenty of eating places - we liked Coco's near the pier best, excellent food and extremely helpful people.

Room Tip: Avoid the ground floor - good sea view from 3rd floor

It's a pity you can only give Average or Very Good. I think this hotel would be in the "Good" range if there was such a rating. We (my husband and 10 year old daughter) had a pleasant enough stay for five nights in a huge, sparsely furnished room. The pool was lovely, but not really big enough if everybody in the place decided to have a swim. The breakfast was very simple, compared to other large hotels we have stayed in. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room had a balcony overlooking which provided a nice view of the pool and area in front of the hotel. It is a pretty 'tired' place, which is why the rates are good in high season, I guess. Our bathroom was smelly at times and the shower didn't have good drainage, which meant water went everywhere. It felt like the room was missing some furniture - perhaps some chairs and a table. We had one desk chair for the entire room. Wi-fi is really slow so we bought a happy tourist sim card that worked a lot faster. The hotel is close to restaurants on the beach but the best places to eat are right opposite - a laundry which serves delicious pad thai and a halal place with excellent spicy food. The air conditioning worked well or you could allow the room to have some fresh air by closing the mosquito mesh sliding doors. There are tuk tuk drivers at the bottom of the driveway ready to take you into Saladan or other places if you want to go elsewhere, otherwise it's a bit of a walk.

Ananda Lanta Resort—hidden 4* hotel
25/01/2012 – 30/01/2012
I have discovered this hotel from the reviews of other fellow travellers who were driving through Ko Lanta . It is a new building, very clean, away from the noise,25% cheaper than all hotels around. The rooms are exactly what you see on the picture, definitely 4* for the room, doesn’t have a the best pool or big bar or big restaurant, maybe that’s why officially the hotel is 3*, but who needs a big pool when 200 metres away is one of most beautiful beaches in all krabi province.
It’s perfect for couples and families, not so much for young lads looking for fun.
The breakfast is ok. Ask for higher level sea view room.
Be aware, as far as I know there is another Ananda hotel on the beach, maybe the same owner, but too noisy and overcrowded
I hope my review helps
Geno P

Room Tip: Ask for higher level sea view room

We were obviously the only guests in the low season and the price was accordingly low. The hotel was in spite of the lack of guests well managed, the great pool cleaned and the staff great. The breakfast was, understandably, not served, but there are good places to eat within walking distance. The only remaining question is - what to do there in the low season, apart from swiming in the pool? Almost all places are closed, especially on the beach. Same on the next 'long' beach ...

Room was beautiful, clean. Stuff very friendly, breakfast delicious. Because hotel wasn't full we got better room with sea view for the lower price. Everything was just perfect.

I had to request a up grade of room and was pleasantly surprised when we were given a room overlooking the pool. Rooms are clean with maid service daily. My only complaint was the breakfast very poor service, all food was left uncovered with flies landing on everthing.

Room Tip: Requst a room overlooking pool as our first room was not very good.
