Lanta Pura Beach Resort
Ranked #65 of 157 Ko Lanta B&B and Inns
Reviewed 5 February 2012

I was looking to do some diving in Lanta and be near the dive shops and near a beach. Pura Lanta delivered on both. Pura Lanta has very nice rooms and sits right on the beach, not far from the pier. The location from that standpoitn and the availability of good seafood restaurants is perfect. The pool is a bit small and feels crowded as people are a bit on top of each other, but the beach is much more spread out and at low tide offers a great long walk along the beach.
The only major knock is that there can be a bit of a septic smell coming from the little canal that goes through the property.

Room Tip: Room facing the pool and west was perfect. More daylight and could see both the pool and beach from...

My wife and I stayed 3 nights in this hotel.
Most of the clients were dutch families or couple in their 60s

LOCATION
Strategic place, in the North of Koh Lanta
- 10 min walk to the main Ferry station (to Phi Phi and Phuket)
- 2 min walk to the Walker Market and many restaurants, bars, boutiques and supermarket
The beach is nice but dirty and there is a concrete barrier which spoils the view. 

ROOM
Big: 30m2
A little bit soundproof but It's a big complex: you hear people slamming their door and moving the big heavy chair in the room. 

SERVICE
The big weakness of this hotel: the service is bad (except for breakfast). The management is really lazy, deteriorating this hotel. 

Room Tip: Don't choose a room at the ground floor with swimming pool view: everyone can see you're roo...

stayed in the Lanta Pura Beach by default......mess up with a booking.
Reception staff very helpful and polite. Considering that we had real problems and they had to book us in a short notice.
Good rooms..t.v. safe , fridge, balcony.
central to saladan, the main hub of KOh Lanta.
Would stay again.
Again, well done to the staff.....
Breakfast was included in our stay...plenty of choice.

Room Tip: not sure...as we stayed because our preius booking in another hotel was over booked

Our stay here was pleasent! The staff didnt pick u up from the pier like everyone else has done on our trip but it wasnt very long atall. The hotel area is nice but maybe a little too open... We were forever being pestered by stray dogs. Its a quiet environment but was peaceful and relaxing. Some music and some proper menus( they give u photocopies of handwritten menus) wud defo spruce the place up, it kind of feels like its dying a slow death. Quite pricey too we paid 45 quid a night alot more then better places weve been too.

Modern well equipped rooms, excellent pool and grounds leading onto the beach, two minutes from a road packed with excellent seafood restaurants, and at low tide an expansive sand bank allows walks all the way to an island offshore. You couldn't be more central, dive shops, ferry pier, restaurants, all around. Many of the ground floor pool view rooms lead directly into the pool. But don't go in the middle of a storm, the rain and wind howls down the corridors! That they have to remedy!

Room Tip: Seaview excellent. Ground floor pool-view rooms lead into the pool.

I had booked via wwww.voyages-sncf.com (same as www.expedia.com) two nights in this hotel at the negociate price of 23 € (1000 THB) a night without fees ans taxes : 27 € a night (1200 THB)inclued VAT and fees. Normal price at the front desk will be 1400 THB at this (bad) low season -july. That's mean around 15% discount. I had a beautiful ans spacious room in the new building opened since Nov '10 with a very king size bed for only me! There is a bathroom with shower "a l'italienne". I had a view on the pool and on the sea at the second floor. There is an efficient A/C system, a wide screen flat TV with CNN and TV5MONDE ASIE and many other channels. Plus minibar with a coke at only 20 HB (0,50 €). I had a balcony too with a fan. There were only 3 occupied rooms in those days of musson season.It was my A/C join and shared van companions who occupied the 2 other rooms ! We were alone in the world ! It was very quit place. But in high season with 120 rooms it will be less quite. Staff there were very helpfull calm and speak very good english. One young woman take my heavy suitcase and put it my room in the second floor without elevator ! The breakfast was inclued (eggs, sausage, ham, coffee, orange juice, fruits, toasted bred, butter and jamm). In high season it is a buffet. You can join directly this hotel directly from the KRABI AIRPORT with join A/C Van for a price 2300THB (60€) if private or 250-330 THB P/P (around 7 €) for one van to share with up to 9 other people. You can ask for private transfert (2300 THB). The driver wait for you at the gate of the airport with a sign with your name and the name of this hotel. Or you can join from the SALATAN PIER from other places ; you have to walk only 300 meters. Beleive me : a good place.

This hotel is only a 5 minute walk from Saladan town centre. It has two pools (and a small kids pool) and an amazing private beach with shallow, calm waters. The private beach is the main selling point as it is idyllic, clean with clear water.

The staff are friendly and welcoming. The breakfast here is good; with a choice of american/ thai breakfast!

The only thing we did not have in the room was a kettle but one was provided upon request. all rooms are big and have balconies complete with ceiling fans where you can sit and enjoy the view.

Saladan itself is a little town with some nice restaurants and souvenir shops. There are also 2 supermarkets and plenty of agents that can help with arranging dive trips etc. there are not many bars however Klongdao Beach is only a short tuk-tuk ride away and has a some beachfront bars/restaurants.

This hotel is ideal for a peaceful getaway. There are some semi-tame dogs on the beach (they are quite friendly and non-threatening) but not for those who are dog-phobic!

Room Tip: Try the pineapple pancake at breakfast - it is yum
