Ko Lanta is a nice quiet island. There are not a lot of crazy parties but the beaches are really nice and quiet. The Narima resort is on the southern part of the island about 20-30 minutes outside the main town. They rent motorbikes at the hotel for 300 Baht a day and driving around the island is not as crazy as it is in Phuket or Bangkok.
The highlight is the staff, they really are there to help you with everything you need. The bungalows are comfortable but like everywhere in Thailand, one must become OK with ants. Don't leave any food or drinks open in your room! The shower/toilet are connected to the main bungalow but are open to the outdoors. It is a little rugged but not uncomfortable and the hot water worked great.
The food is good and reasonable priced. There is a great beach just a little north that has a LOVELY bar called Simple House that sits perched on a cliff. The view of sunset from there is amazing.
We found the hotel to be a good base for adventures around the island. It is also a short ferry ride to Phi Phi (avoid the tours and get a long-tail when you land on the island).
