“Super hotel with superb beach in front”
Reviewed 10 March 2012

Big Hotel superb with very nice beach directly in front. Hotel modern and really well maintained. Very good housekeeping. Good service at the reception except the fact that some people only speak thai but not really a problem. Good restaurant et perfect breakfast buffet. Lose to shopping areas. Nice pool and garden. Good value.

Managed to bag a sweet deal for 3 nights here as a treat between backpackers and guesthouses. Had a tiny bit of bother finding it as google maps had the location marked elsewhere from where I disembarked from the ferry but was very happy with what I found once I eventually arrived. It's extremely luxurious resort, the room I had was huge, enough floorspace for 3-4 more of the massive queensize bed that occupied it and a large terrace/balcony outside that overlooked the ocean, a great place to sit and watch the sunset over the bay. The bathroom was plush and modern and even had a bath! An actual bath! I haven't seen one of those since I started travelling!
The breakfast was plentiful and excellent, a wide choice from continental to a man making eggs and omletes to order.
The location was fine, big open pool/courtyard area with bar and a short 50 meter walk through some (admittedly scraggy looking) palms to a great little beach with a sandbar in front and a small island just out to see that couldn't have been more ideally placed. The clientele seemed to be mostly scandanavian families and russians so it's not got much atmosphere but the waterfront restaurants of Sala Dan (2 min walk) and the cool beach bars of Klong Dao (5 min tuk tuk) are where it's at in the locale.

Located right in the centre of Saladan but down it's own driveway so you're away from the main strip. Lovely refreshing juice on arrival and because we were early our rooms weren't ready but the staff gave us towels and allowed us to use the rest of the hotel and go to the beach.

The beach is about 20m from the pool area so you really couldn't be closer without sleeping in the water. We had a pool room, which we thought meant we could access the pool from our rooms but it turned out this just meant you can see the pool - I honestly wouldn't bother paying the extra next time unless it was only a small difference.

The rooms we stayed in in the new block were modern and nicely decorated with working A/C. The bed was comfy and we slept really well - no noise either. Cleanliness wasn't amazing though especially in the bathroom...an odd pubic hair here and there and someone's long head-hair on the shower wall. Not really major stuff but when you're not paying super-cheap prices you want it right, no?

Also the pool bar wasn't great as the two girls who work it during the day didn't seem to know their drinks as when we asked for 3 of the same drink, one came back blue and the other two red, yet they insisted the drinks were the same. Best thing going for this hotel is that there's a sand dune which is accessible between 11am-4pm every day that you wade through shallow water to get to and you can sunbathe on all day - however if you can find a cheaper place to stay you could always just walk to this part of the beach.

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.
