Koh Lanta restored my faith in Thailand as a get away beach destination. My recent experience of resorts in trashy Phuket & Samui confirmed that Cambodia is the place to go. That said, I’ll definitely go back to Koh Lanta and stay at the Southern Lanta.
This resort is on the beach with a pool and restaurant. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the price is reasonable. There are plenty of small beach front bars and restaurants immediately adjacent to the hotel so you have plenty of choice.
A reasonable buffet breakfast is included but the main town area is 5 mins in a tuc tuc where you will find decent restaurants and bars to suit all tastes.
We traveled to Koh Lanta so that my 10 year old could complete his PADI open water dive qualification. Check out Italian run Phoenix Dives ( reviewed separately ) if you’re into this. More
