Costa Lanta is situated on the best and most beautiful beach on the island. It’s beautifully designed. It offers excellent value for money. It has a stunning pool. The activity centre is very well run and very helpful.
“First-timers” would love it.
Seasoned travellers would see through the cracks.
Sadly, I suspect their owners have fallen “out of love” with this little jewel and left it to its own devices. When I visited 11 years ago it was clearly loved, fresh, hip and happening and very well maintained.
It’s still hip…but no longer fresh and no longer happening. It’s indeed very neglected, and knowing Thailand and its amazing ever-smiling-people, we got the distinct impression that the staff unfortunately seemed not to be very happy or motivated and they were not having fun at all…although they did try very hard to serve and to be correct, but very serious, without that Thai signature x-factor when it comes to people.
We stayed in a luxury beach front cottage, which is in fact not beach front, but behind the pool, behind the little mosquito infested river. Lovely large room with two huge floor-to-ceiling windows on either side of the bed…only privatised by two blinds on the outside of the patio on either side…so, if you have a bit of a voyeurism deep inside you, you would love this as people walking past your room would be able to see right onto your bed through the outside blinds on either side…I think we did give a poor man and his wife the fright of their lives…or fulfilled a secret fantasy…when they wanted to have a peek into our room one afternoon and saw us taking an afternoon “nap” ….in our defence, we did close all available blinds for privacy, but our “audience” still had a full clear view of the bed through the open spaces between the blinds…!
If you are young – or even young at heart - and on a budget - this is your best bet!
