We stayed at the Lanta Pavillion in mid-late June, which is definitely in Koh Lanta's low season. Low season in Lanta is VERY QUIET, so don't go to June, July, August if you like bustling beach resorts. But, if you want a bit of solitude with a loved one or your family, then low season is for you!
The rooms at Lanta Pavillion are of a high standard. Lovely big double bed, with crisp white bedding, good air con, wardrobe, dresser, TV, nice large bathroom with open plan shower area, plus a nice veranda at the front of each bungalow with tables and chairs.
The grounds are well kept, and there is a nice pool with a few sunloungers, and you are a stones throw from the beach. But the best bit is WE WERE THE ONLY ONES THERE! That, and our room was only 500 baht a night which is cheap for any island in Thailand for an aircon room.
The downside (if you want to call it that) is the beachside restaurant and tourist office is not open, but Joe who works there will help you with anything you need, from orientation on the island, to helpful hints on the good places to eat (which are still open), and booking tours.
There were three restaurants nearby. Bulan and Sonya do Thai food and breakfast at a reasonable price, and a good Greek restaurant which although was a bit expensive compared to the other two, did massive portions and made a nice change from Thai noodles/rice etc.
there's also a Seven Eleven store for all other bits and pieces.
If you get a motorbike (200baht from the hotel) there are plenty of other places on Lanta too. The roads are reasonable and very quiet, so good for novice scooter riders like ourselves.
All in all a great place to stay. Couldn't recommend it enough.
