I really want to write a lot about this place and hotel. Although we went there last June but did not have time to put this update. Location of this hotel is just amazing, we have selected the beach front suite. Do not go by the name of suite, as this is just a big room, but yes this is right on the beach. You can watch the sunset from your room only. There is a small patio outside the room where you can sit and you can spend many days just watching the sea and only the sea and just doing nothing. The room is a thai style room, bed is big enough and there is also a day bed, which you can make your child sleep at night. The pool is small but for us this was enough as we did not have to share this with anyone. At night you can hear the sea waves, the place is just amazing. They give free WiFi but only on the pool and reception area, this does not reach your room. For us this was not a problem at all.
The season when we went is low season, and that was so low, you hardly see anyone in the beach. You can walk long and long on the beach and no one would be around. We had been to many different places in southern Thailand, this is the most amazing experience we had. A hotel where you are the only guests, but this have not made their hospitality to us any less, in fact the hotel manager use to ask us if we need anything or if anything is that he can do for us. They have a shuttle to the Saladan town, but since we were the only guests, this shuttle got us any time we wanted. Most of the shops in the town was closed and very few tourist could be seen in the roads. But by a little walk in the back of the hotel there was a minimart and you could get all your necessity needs there. The food in the hotel is just good, we had dinners there since nothing was open after evening. Brkfast was served on a set menu, we have to keep in mind that we are the only guests and they can never arrange a buffet for us only.
If you are a fun loving person, this is not the place. If you are a quite and peace loving person, who just want to spend a very private time with their family only, this is JUST THE RIGHT PLACE. This is just a perfect peaceful holiday we have ever opted for, just nothing to do, and spend a lot of time together. There is no much things to do in Koh Lanta. Its just a quite island, you can make this all to yourself. We spend a week there and every moment we enjoy.
I would highly recommend this place to any peace loving person who wants to have the comfort of home on the lap of nature. If we go to Koh Lanta again, we are sure to stay here only. At the end, I want to thank the manager who really taken all the care to serve us the best.
