“Perfect paradise escape ”
Reviewed 18 November 2013 via mobile

Me and my partner originally only booked 2 nights at the pavilion we ended up staying 5 and had to force ourselves to move on. We got a bargain deal on agoda for a beautiful bungalow in the resort. The room was completely spotless and the cleanest room I have stayed in during our travels around thailand. The rooms were cleaned and freshened up every day with fresh drinking water stocked in the fridge, new toiletries and towels. The staff here were incredibly kind, welcoming and extremely helpful always willing to go that extra mile to ensure you enjoy your stay. Breakfast in the hotel was delicious every morning, eating with a view of the beautiful white sandy beach. Swimming pool area again very clean and tidy, never crowded there's always a spare lounger. I cannot recommend this hotel or the island of koh lanta enough, it is without a doubt the best value for money stay we have had in thailand and the most relaxing experience. It's also in a fabulous location on Khlongkong with many options of restaurants and bars if you fancy dining outside of the hotel. A complete detox of the business and rush of everyday life, I would return in a heartbeat. Truly deserves this glowing review ! The hotel even located an important dental item I had left behind and ensured it made its way back to me for which I am also eternally grateful ! Book your stay in lanta at the pavilion you certainly will not regret it!!

We were here for 7 nights and it was a really wonderful holiday. The stuff was very nice, helpful, the food was excellent. The quiet place with lovely beach where we enjoyed sunsets and cocktails :). We rented a motorbike and traveled around the whole island, which was amazing. Ko Lanta is one of the most beautiful islands in Thailand and Lanta Pavilion Resort is good place to spend time. The only negative are the rocks in the water but we didn't mind.

its a quiet location , perfect for rest. Rooms are clean, bathroom not very clean but reasonable.
very slow services. We waited shuttle bus from ferry boat almost 1 hour but nothing , so we booked a tuk tuk.When we arrived at hotel, shuttle bus just came. It was frustrating.

Indeed Koh Lanta is a great place for rest. Everywhere you look and everything you do is laid back and relaxed and this is what attracts so many people here. Everything in Koh Lanta is slow and peaceful and I think this definitely reflects a little bit on the speed of service everywhere on the island. We will definitely try to improve the speed of our service without taking too much away from the island lifestyle.

Location is the only reason you should stay at Lanta Pavilion, the food is expensive and lacks quality, the rooms are average, but the location is stunning, which makes up for it. The staff were extremely helpful though

We are so happy that you enjoyed our beautiful location with picture perfect sun sets from the restaurant on the beach front. The friendly and helpful staff here always do everything they can to ensure you enjoy your stay with us so it was very nice of you co compliment on that. We do understand the restaurant is not always up to everybody's taste and now we have improved and redesigned our whole menu to include dishes of Thai, European, Mexican, Continental and many more. Also we have daily fresh seafood BBQ's on the beach in high season.

We stayed here a total of 3 nights. And the day before we left we had a day out and were gone for more than 6 hours - something the staff were aware of as they knew we had hired a motorbike to explore the island.

It wasn't until we were packing all our stuff up that we notice over hundreds of pounds of our stuff was missing included shoes, clothes, make up, jewellery and a watch. We emailed the manager and while he was very sympathetic he did nothing financially to rectify the situation. I thought he could at least refund the stay which was only £32 for 3 nights for both of as it was low season.

I can't tell you how humiliated me and my sister felt after we realised what had happened. We were two young girls backpacking around Thailand and this event ruined our stay here.

The staff are very dodgy looking don't speak English and all talk about you in front of you in another language then laugh in your face.

I feel the only way we can do justice by ourselves is making people aware of what happened to us and telling people not to stay.

DO NOT STAY HERE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE!

I am very sorry to hear something like this. It is very surprising as there has never been any theft before in the resorts history or that of any I know in Koh Lanta. The staff here are happy and polite and try their very best. They are not all able to speak good English so when there is a situation they feel uncomfortable or intimidated by they will talk in Thai, this is normal in Thailand but I can understand how you may have felt people were talking about you but I assure you this is not the case. I do not understand why somebody who has worked here for many years and had access to mobile phones, wallets, laptops and many other expensive items on a daily basis would risk there job for shoes and make up. I do not know if you have made a mistake or there is something more behind the story but it all does not make sense to me.

You don't come to the Islands of Southern Thailand for posh resort seclusion. You come to meet locals and fellow travellers, and you pick a spot that affords you access to everything the place has to offer. Well, this is it. Lanta Pavilion is cheaper than both (shall remain nameless) places next to it, and is superior in quality. The staff, if you take the time to get to know them, will take care of you in resort-like fashion. The bungalows are tidy, the food is great, the drinks are even better. Rent scooters from here, they're brand new. My friend got a flat on his scooter (he wasn't even on it at the time) on the other side of the island, and the staff was there in 10 minutes (!) with a new scooter. Can't beat the service. If you're lucky enough to be here on a full moon, M will whip around flaming things whilst you lounge on your triple-wide beachfront bamboo chaise lounge, cocktail in hand, with your friends listening to chillout music. It's a super-good place.

Room Tip: The bungalows with fans and not A/C are cheaper, and you really don't need A/C here with such a...

Originally booked for 3 nights but extended for another 5 nights! Joe the manager was very helpful and always willing to solve any problems. He gave us tons of suggestions of things to see and where to eat and booked tours and rides for us.

Our room (with a/c) was super clean. The last few places we have come across had some giant cockroaches but thankfully not here!!

Hot shower and super comfy bed. Great central location on the island, and the pavilion is right on the beach (although in the low season the beach isn't the best).

Since it's low season the restaurant is closed and so no free breakfast. But there are some great options all within walking distance.

Pool was great too!

Overall, amazing value for money and the best service from Joe!
Cleaning staff were also very friendly and lovely!

Definitely would stay here again.
