“Great Stay In Ko lanta”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

We stayed in this resort end of July, it was low season and we get good price.The room lil bit old but we likes how they build the resort in Thai traditional setting. Pool was lovely, we enjoyed swim in both swimming pool. Beach was great with beautiful sandy beach and very suitable for the family with the young kid. The restaurant looked close but no worries there is a lot of restaurant in walking distance and also 7 eleven. Only 1 thing make me bored is the breakfast, they serve only few selection and same menu everyday. Maybe they can change the menu lil bit at least change the fruits that will make difference. But overall we enjoyed our staying in Royal Lanta and would come back :)

Room Tip: Rooms close to the beach will get more breeze

We got a great deal here and initially we were impressed. The resort looks lovely, the rooms are great and it's right on the beach. However after checking in and beginning to explore we realised that despite the reception team showing us where the restaurant is.... It's not actually open. The cafe. . The Sea cow is open. But the delicious pastries they advertise are certainly not available at the moment. We decided to eat there one night as in reception there was a fixed price Thai meal for two on offer. It looked great. We went into the Sea cow which we were told was acting as the restaurant when we enquired further. But they just said no to the fixed price meal. The meal advertised in the reception! No explanation. Just no. My husband ordered a cocktail. No again. No bar man. And the staff in the Sea Cow do not seem at all happy to be there. In fact as soon as we'd finished our meal they turned the lights out and brought us the bill. Not at all the Thai hospitality we had been used to elsewhere. It really felt like the resort was open just to take some money but they weren't making any effort for guests and it was my feeling that they shouldn't really be open. They certainly didn't create a good impression! At breakfast on our first morning despite being several tables available for us to sit at, they were all un cleared and very dirty. The staff were making little effort to make it a welcoming environment. Upon our check out two separate groups of people also checked out stating they were leaving a day early. I think the management here need to really consider how they treat low season guests.

Lovely, spacious chalets by the 3 km stretch of beautiful sandy beach. Walking distance to nearby shops and food stalls. Love the two swimming pools. Such helpful and friendly staff who tried to speak my language. The sunsets are heavenly. Can't get enough of the running along the long stretch of beach - always inviting me to run, especially when the tide is low.

It takes 2 ferry crossings to get here from Krabi airport and the journey took about 2 and half hours. The waiting to board the ferry is what took a long time. Luckily for us, it was off season, so not many tourists.

Stayed 3 nights during the low tourist season, so there were not many guests and it was so nicely quite and peaceful. This resort gave us a truly enjoyable stay. Keep it up!

Room Tip: No wifi in rooms, but rooms near the pools and cafe can be within wifi range available at the facili...

what can i say, we stopped here for 6 nights with out even booking room, so we took a chance they would have space, which they did!
omg! what a fab place it was as well, there were four of us staying in these lovely appartments, we had a choice of a bungalow but we chose the other instead, lovely four poster beds with the nets, lovely jacuzzi as well with a very spacious shower as well, we had our own pool as well as there was never anyone else about, we were two minutes from the beach so you could have lovely long walks along there, we were also given a free foot & reflexoligy massage which was just lovely, also we had a free meal in the resteraunt for two nights, the staff were lovely & friendly, some could speak little english!
the duty manager was so nice she spoke to us everyday at breakfast, was always happy to help with anything we asked for, lovely lady!
also the manager (sorry forgot his name) spoke perfect english so that was very helpful at times.
such a nice man too, the beach was so long & sandy and lovely to walk along in the hot sun.
i would deffinately recomend a stay here....

We stayed in a Family bungalow in February and enjoyed our stay! The room was spacious and quiet. We spent a lot of time by the bigger pool (because children loved that pool) and most of the time we were the only ones there despite of high season.

We had problems with sink and toilet, but hotel staff came to repair issues within few minutes from our request.

Breakfast was excellent with six different fresh fruits ans seaview.

One suggestion for management: we would like to have stayed in a family room with two separate bedrooms. I heard other families would have appreciated this option also. You have rooms for about 70 square meters, but they are all one space.

We stayed for 3 nights, and we enjoyed every minute of it. Warm welcome at reception and we absolutely loved our bungalow, right next to one of the pool areas and beach. We were lucky enough to have wifi access while in our room, but its good access in public areas in general. Location is great, staff is friendly and the food is delicious. They had their annual staff party April 26, as a tradition since 2001, so the staff is rewarded for their hard work, which in my opinion is a good sign.

Klao dang beach is beautiful and mellow, and perfect area to unwind. The Spa at the resort is excellent, and well worth the extra bahts.

I recommend this resort and would love to come back in the future.
