Lanta Marine Park View Resort
Ranked #64 of 84 Hotels in Ko Lanta
Reviewed 16 January 2013 via mobile

Ok so you might find the odd hair in the sink if you look hard enough but this place is pretty close to heaven. Yes the rooms are basic but the service is sweet, the atmosphere charming and friendly amongst the guests, the food fantastic and so cheap. Not a place for small children (lots of stairs). Books rooms in "a" row as they have a direct view of the beach...and what a view!

I have stayed at this resort before around 6 years ago, when it was a well managed business.
Now they have changed owner and i have to say that it is a shadow of it's former self.
Most of the bungalows are run down and in need of a repair. Our room was clean inside however the bathroom was still dirty when we arrived.
The service is a joke. We had to wait 45 mins for a fried rice dish which usually takes 5 mins to cook. Staff never come over to take orders, we had to go order with the only guy who could speak English.
In it's favour is the location and views which are fantastic.

I would recommend staying elsewhere around Kantiang bay for cheaper prices

Room Tip: Choose lower down the hill as there is less wind

The surrounding jungle
The snorkling possibilities
The extremety nice plateaus and terasses in the restaurent.

-little pricy.

You get what you pay for.
Budget option but slightly higher prices than other budget options due to prime location.

Location;
Beautiful views over very quiet and clean beach.
Secluded but not isolated.
Walking distance from small 7/11, a few shops and a couple of beach side restaurants.

Staff / service;
No issues and all queries dealt with swiftly and efficiently.
Couple of less enthusiastic staff which is rare for Thailand but not a huge issue.

Food;
As expected, not gourmet but no problems with it.

All services needed on offer; tour services, bike/car hire, food, internet.

Would highly recommend for a quiet get away that won't break the bank!

Friendly staff, comfortable room with a nice view from the rooms, monkeys coming time to time to see what you are doing. The hotel is located in far south of Koh Lanta, you are far from the busy corner of the island. All the necessary services are available near by (diving, snorkeling, bars, restaurants, massage)
Food at the resort is nice but quite spicy.

Well after reading the reviews I was dreading my holiday to the point I didn't want to go. Me and my OH were travelling to Koh Lanta to visit my dad who was at the time travelling across the world. When we arrived the staff were lovely but most of all to our shock the room was lovely! Nice big bed, lovely balcony we even adopted a cat for two weeks!!

The food was awesome the thai breakfast was a bit much on a morning so just had eggs and toast with fruit... no complaints!! We grabbed lunch here a couple of times and the burgers were yummy but the pad thai was to die for!!! And on top of all that they did the best pina coladas!

Koh Lanta was like heaven.... the people were friendly the beach was amazing the snorkelling was excellent. We went on an excursion and ended up seeing two baby sharks!!!

All I can say is dont always trust other peoples reviews because this was the best holidayI have ever had!!!!

We stayed at the Bamboo bungalows and had a great time. The hotel breakfast is good and the view from the restaurant terrace is amazing. Motorcycles are for rent at the hotel, this is really a must to go around the island. The national park is jus a 10 minutes drive away and is really nice if you like hiking and monkeys!
