My husband and I stayed here for four nights on our honeymoon,
First impressions were wonderful - very helpful staff at reception.
Rooms - very small and lacked natural daylight.
There is no where to store your suitcases/bags and one small wardrobe in the bathroom for your clothes - we didn't bother unpacking!
The concept of the rooms are great but the practicality is not so good. In theory, you could have two sides of your room open to provide natural light when relaxing which would provide views of the lovely gardens or beach depending on the location of your room but in reality, there are a lot of flies that you do not want buzzing around in your room. I noticed that some rooms have had large glass windows put in them to replace the doors - this looked great as you get the views, natural light but no bugs!
The house keeping staff came into the room every date - late afternoon to put the mosquito net down around the bed - great way to stop any unwanted bites but a nuisance if you need to get up to the loo at ngiht!
Mosquito / insect repellent an absolute necessity at this resort.
Having said that - there's a lovely sound of birds and wildlife in the mornings on waking. A nice personal feel to the hotel with only 22 rooms. A fabulous lounge area with great chilled out music playing and free WiFi. Also some lovely cocktails - ? unique to Costa Lanta I think as I've never heard of some of them before.
Good selection at breakfast.
New Years Eve Party - wow! Costa Lanta really know how to throw a party. Canapes, three course meal on the beach, free flow of drinks, DJ, fireworks, lanterns to release on the beach after midnight - the full works! 4500 bahts sounded expensive initially for a NYE party in Thailand but it was worth every baht!
Very helpful and friendly staff throughout the hotel.
I would recommend this hotel for lots of reasons but don't expect a spacious room and perhaps request a room with glass rather than the wooden doors.
