“Lovely Stay at Holiday Villa”
Reviewed 6 November 2011

We are a couple who stayed at Holiday with some friends and my parents - it was a great choice of accommodation and suited all of us. The weather wasn't perfect while we were in Lanta so the pool and pool area was ideal for lazing around, grabbing some food/drinks, playing table tennis etc. We didn't use the beach as much as we did on our previous stay on Lanta.

We stayed in their Deluxe Room (downstairs in bungalow with Junior Suite rooms above). The rooms are big and clean, the bathroom a little dated but it was ok. We had everything we needed and the resort and rooms were kept very clean. Our room was set in the hills at the end of the beach, only a few steps up so this wasn't a problem. The staff at the resort were friendly and helpful and the food at the restaurant was good and reasonably priced.

The resort is located right at the southern end of Klong Dao, away from the noise of the bars but only a 5 min walk along the beach to a good selection of places to eat and drink. You can't see the sunset at the far southern end of the beach so you need to walk 5 mins north to ....a good excuse to check out what Klong Dao has to offer.

The atmosphere in Lanta is lovely and the locals are so welcoming. Lanta is very small so it's easy to get around and check out the other beaches, either on a scooter or the tuk tuk style taxis that seem to easy to find.

Room Tip: If steps are going to be a problem, make this known when you book.

Helpfull and friendly staff.
Pool area could have been more clean and maintained and the garden as well.
Especially when travelling with children it is great to have a separate bedroom as you can get here in (all?) the bungalows.
We had a beach-side bungalow but for med this was more a sea-view. I expected to have nothing betwen our bungalow and the beach and therefor was a bit dissapointed.
Walk 100 meter on the beach to get better swimming-conditons becauae in front of the hotel there are boats and stones/rocks

The walk into reception speaks volumes - a run down, tired looking place. Stayed in a deluxe sweet, the bedroom is up to par with a large bed, sofa tv etc. But the bathroom wasn't as nice. Stains on the shower tiles and around the bath. The patio is simply concrete, and the gardens are badly maintained, there is just no care. Beach isn't great, mud like sand at there end, but take a walk further up and it gets a bit better. Staff are helpful and pleasant and the pools pretty good if you've got kids.

For me I won't be revisiting.

Velmi dobré ubytování , kousek od Long beache s výborným koupáním i za odliviu(cca 10 minut pěšky) a přimo na plží Klong Dao plné rušného života a plážových barů.Také do vesnice Saladan s restauracemi s mořskými specilaitami je to po pláži cca 30 minut volné chůze.

We had a fantastic two weeks at Holiday Villa. Our bungalow was spotless, and extremely spacious. We opted for a Garden Villa and we were delighted with our choice. My one tiny gripe would be that some of the colourful detailing on the outside of the bungalows was looking a little tired and were ready for a lick of paint, but this did not in any way spoil the place for us.
The resort is located right at the end of the beach so is very quiet. It is in fact next to a sea gyspy village, which was interesting to watch. The longtail boats are moored nearby and this added to the atmosphere.
The sea is clear blue and although there are some rocks in the water directly outside the resort, within 2 minutes walk up the beach the rocks disappear. Having said this you can swim directly outside the hotel as there aren't that many rocks and they are visible.
The restaurant and beach bar at the resort serve amazing thai food and also a good range of western food that my fussy 5 and half year old was very happy to eat. There are also numerous hotels along the beach of which were all gorgeous.
The pools are beautiful and kept clean. Both have slides for children, however one is shallow enough for children to stand in and the other has a deeper end. There are plenty of sun beds around the pools and enough shade and parasols for all. No need for anyone to get up before the crack of dawn to 'bag' a sun bed!!

To summarise, I would definately stay at Holiday Villa again. I have been to Koh Lanta 3 times in total and this is by far the nicest place I have stayed.

Thanks to everyone there.... See you soon.

We spend our first night on Lanta on Lanta Marine Park View Resort. We had reservations for six nights however ended up checking out after one night. Instead we found this place. Maybe not at cosy and exotic as Marine Park View Resort but soooooo much more comfort! The garden villa was spacey, the beds ok (twin beds put together though, don't get that) and the bathroom modern. The location on the southern part of the main beach was ok as we found Kantieng beach too deserted (and rocky). Here there was a bit more life, althogh not crowded at all (we were rather surprised by the empty beaches and restaurants).

We have a good stay for five nights. No frills, but clean and comfortable. Probably more suited for families (the hotel had a pool) or groups as the villas could accomodate at least four people.
