“Comfortable, clean, friendly, good value”
Reviewed 19 May 2014 via mobile

This resort was amazing. We loved it so much we ended up extending our stay from just one night to a total of 7 nights.

The resort is almost brand new. It was built 1.5yrs ago (as of May '14). As a result all the buildings and facilities are in great shape.

We had a bungalow (all the bungalows are identical in furnishings) which was cleaned every day to a very high standard. We received fresh bath towels and beach towels daily. The mattress was comfortable although was sat directly ontop of a concrete plinth rather than a box spring or wooden slats, this didn't bother us but could affect more sensitive sleepers. The AC in the bungalow worked really well and as a result we had some very good sleeps. The bathroom was fine, lots of space and the hot shower worked. It could have had more pressure but it did the job.

The other facilities in the resort were good too. A beautiful pool with a sea view, perfect for lounging in with a cocktail. A very nice restaurant with great seating areas including 3 double hammocks. The food was good but not the best we had in Koh Lanta. It was a little more expensive than roadside restaurants but still competitively priced considering the beach side location. There was a massage area and a dive shop on location. The dive shop was closed May-Oct. There was a small fleet of mopeds to rent and they were in great condition. No chance of a scam here.

We negotiated (in person) a 900B/night rate for the bungalow because we stayed in off-season for 7 nights. Compared to what we paid in other places we are pleased to have got this deal.

The surrounding area has two superb restaurants. Kwan's Kitchen was the best Thai food we ate in Thailand and also ran a cooking school. It was relatively cheap for the quality and run by the most adorable couple ever. Greek Tavern la Greca was about 500m down the road and also superb food at a reasonable price. Next door to Coco Lanta you will find Freedom Bar which is run by some very friendly locals who create a very hospitable atmosphere.

Perhaps the highlight of the whole stay were the staff at Coco Lanta. They were the friendliest Thai people we have ever met. And when you put that in the context of all the rest of Thai people you meet in Thailand you must realise that the staff at Coco Lanta really are something special. We LOVED them.

I felt comfortable instantly at Coco Lanta Resort. The room was modern, clean and had everything: coffeecooker, fridge and a safe. There is a swimming pool and the hotel is right at the beach where we could have a swim nearly anytime (sometimes the rocks are showing but there are sandy patches between the rocks). The girls at the lobby (Dream, Ed and Boo) were the most friendliest reception staff of our whole one month Lanta stay and had always a smile for us.

Kong Klong apart from Bamboo Bay Beach was our favorite beach on Koh Lanta we visited (we didn't see all of them). With all the bars and restaurants and the lovely beach I think the "vibes" were the best.

The rooms in Coco Lanta are not big (due to ecological reasons) and there is not a lot of shady places around the pool and beach. The Bungalows don't give you the ultimative tropical romantic feeling, having quite a bit of familys with kids around as well and the bungalows modern and close together, but more like you have everything what you need and therefore it is quite comfy and you just can relax.

The Thai food in the restaurant is good.

Booked a bungalow in the low season and got a great deal. The rooms are small but very efficient. Has everything you need. Plus, the beach vibes are so great and there's plenty to do so you don't really spend a lot of time in your room. The staff are super friendly and helpful. Clean comfortable lines and they take good care of you with whatever you need.

The food is decent but has resort prices. When you walk up to the street which is within minutes, mrs kwans restaurant is some of the best food in Thailand. I recommend the cooking class as well. Very easy & affordable.

A stones throw to to chill beach bars with great vibes. Freedom bar was frequented by us. Beach view, pool, great locals.

We stayed low season so there wasn't much open but it was perfect for us to chill out & relax.

I would definitely come back.

I've been to Thailand a few times on different types of budgets, and this is one of the better bungalow style resorts I've been to. Cute cement bungalows, clean, and perfectly sized for two. The restaurant / bar has incredibly friendly staff (like most come to expect in Thailand) and will help you plan your trips around the island. Great spot to come home to. No crazy frills, and there is no need for them. Perfect little pool, outdoor pool table, nice people, and a very fair price. What more could you ask for?

Room Tip: Get a bungalow. I heard a couple complaints about the new building, and why stay in a hotel style bu...

We are a young family with 3 children, 6, 4 and 8 months old. This resort was perfect for us! The rooms are small, but you spend so little time in the room that it really doesn't matter. The staff are excellent and really engaged with the children, especially the baby, making our stay stress free and relaxing. The restaurant is great and the food is excellent! I would highly recommend this resort to anyone travelling with kids.
