“Nice resort, shame about the amplified music nearby”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2014

This is a pretty little resort, located right on the beach. Rooms were a good size, very clean and well equipped and even the furthest back are just a couple of minutes from the beach. The service from the manager and staff was really good. However, the downside was as in the title of this review - all was quiet during the day, then about 10/11pm the amplified music from nearby bars would start up and go on until 2, 3 and in one case 5, am. A shame for this resort as presumably they have no control over it, but it did change the atmosphere somewhat. Not sure who was enjoying this music either as most people we saw around the resort, and Koh Lanta, were middle aged couples or families. However, we did stay 23rd, 24th and 25th December, so maybe it was a Christmas special and we were just unlucky with the timing.

Me and my boyfriend spent about 10days in koh lanta at sea sand sun hotel and absolutely loved the place.. The hotel is comprised of number of separate bungalows/villas and is actually fairly small in size, but I think that's what makes it so homey and cozy.. Couldn't wish for the better place to spend Xmas..
The only negative points about the place - the pool wasn't very clean and rather cloudy, although someone was cleaning it every day.. And couple nights through our stay we couldn't sleep till very late cuz of bars around cracking the base to the maximum.. So you couldn't really hear the music, but the vibrating surroundings were very annoying..

Upon arrival we didn't get the king size bed, but 2 double ones instead, which was quite disappointing, even though the manager said she'd move us in couple days once the room becomes available.. However after staying 1 night in our bungalow we decided not to move.. It was away from the front area, so much quiter and secluded.. The room itself was great. So much space to throw all our stuff around, shelves, safe.. Beds were very comfortable.. There was 2 beach type lounge chairs on the porch that you could read, FaceTime or just laze in when you are not on the beach.. Room was spotlessly cleaned every day.
The beach itself was about 1min walking from our bungalow.. Had everything you need - lounges, huge beach towels (provided in the room), even big leafy tree if you want to sit in the shade:)
Extra words should be said about breakfast and massage place! Breakfast was amazing! There is 3 choices of breakfast style, all 3 come with very fresh fruit (watermelon and pineapple), and we even saw guests ordering pancakes (not on the menu).. The massage is the best place on the beach.. Very clean, all 3 masseuses are very professional and super friendly.. And you get a nice cup of tea with honey and ginger at the end.. We went for a massage every single day and never got tired of it
If our visa didn't run out and hotel wasn't fully booked for the next 2 weeks, we would've definitely stayed longer.. You really feel as a part of the family here, everyone know you and all staff is super friendly and ready 24/7 to make sure you are 100% happy.. When we were leaving, the owner herself took us to the airport and arranged for us to be picked up once we returned to Thailand, even though we stayed at different place this time.. Wonderful experience.. I would definitely come back to sea sand sun when visiting koh lanta..
The beach (Klong Khong) is excellent place as well.. All restaurants along the beach have lanterns, so the whole strip is illuminated at night and is very pretty in a cozy way.. Majority of restorants play nice relaxing music.. Majority have fire shows..
Also excellent place for snorkeling.. We saw several lobsters, huge puffer fish, numerous smaller fishes and even found a tiny octopus wondering on the rocks in the evening when tide was out. All in all it's a great place for a relaxing with family/kids..

Room Tip: For me rooms away from the pool area were a bit more private and quite..
