We arrived to Koh Lanta by ferry. There were lots of tuk-tuk drivers on the ferry trying to sell their service with higly overpriced! Luckily we didn't book a ride from them, because there was a free tuk-tuk ride provided by the hotel. So we got easily to the hotel, and while we were checking in the friendly staff gave us a welcome drink. Don't know what it was, ice tea perhaps, but the smell was much worse than the taste.
We got a nice room (#121) near the pool. And the hotel was so lovely! Nice little pathways squirming between the rooms (cottages) and palm trees. If possible, it got even nicer when the dark came and the lights went on. But the absolutely best part of this hotel is the restroom! Showering under the full moon and stars while crickets are singing, that is the memory I will always remember and get back to.
Breakfast was good, not so much choices than in other hotels but you could manage with that quite long. There were fruits, bread, cereals and yogurt for everyone, and you could also make an order from the list (its included in the room price). We had omelettes every mornign, it was ok. We also ate at this restaurant couple times, the food was ok.
The hotel is situated in a quite long walking distance from the markets and restaurants, and therefore its nicely quiet. We rented a scooter from the hotel for our stay, so we could easily drive to restaurants in the evening. It is cheaper if you book it for more than just one day.
We stayed here in december 2012 for five nights. Travelled as a one couple and one family with three children aged 3, 8 and 10 years.
