Lanta Villa Resort
Ranked #46 of 84 Hotels in Ko Lanta
Reviewed 24 February 2013

Lanta Villa is located right on the beach of Klong Dao. The beach is nice, but the hotel does not have enough sun loungers... or they have; guests reserve them but do not use them for hours - oh those Swedes ;-)

The atmosphere at the hotel is really relaxing. Bungalows are basic and a little worn out but quite spacious. A restaurant is reasonably priced (which is not common in hotels) and Thai food was ok there. A staff was really friendly and helpful.

a Danish friend of mine who comes to Koh Lanta for several months each year
always stays at Lanta Villa; after visting him there many times & hanging out w/him,
in room, on the grounds, the beach, or just sitting on the spacious patio-
i can see why; this place- the grounds & location: truly beautiful
the staff is friendly (except w/pushy people, but that is the Thai way-
if people get rude, angry, demanding, Thai culture dictates that one turn away-
"jai yen yen" [keep a cool heart])
many of the guests i met there come to this resort every year
the rooms are clean, spacious, comfy, quiet, and well-maintained;
very good value for money
beautifully verdant (yet understated) grounds, prime location...
as is the case w/many beach resorts here, the food at the restaurant is so-so
(my friend always takes his meals w/the Thai staff- the REAL deal!!!)
but this is not a problem, as there are many good choices available
with a shaded 5 minute walk to the main road, plus quite good Don's Restaurant
a 5-minute walk south down Klong Dao beach

Room Tip: rooms near the beach are slightly bigger (&of course nicer view) but all the rooms are comfy...

Been staying at Lanta Villa several times often 3 - 4 weeks.
Always rent V1, the villa directly on the beach. Spacious room and bath. Big balcony facing the ocean and sunsets.
Good service from the mostly thinglish speaking staff. Cleanliness OK. Good Thai dishes and european ala carte breakfast in the restaurant.
Now I haven't been to Koh Lanta for a year or so, but I will definitely return to Lanta Villa next time.

Room Tip: V1 facing the beach. Dont leave your expensive shoes outside the room - cats, dogs or someone else...

Lanta Villa is a small, charming resort with a prime location right in the middle of Klong dao beach with roughly the same distance in both directions and a huge variety of restaurants and bars. It is very well planned with both swimming pool, restaurant and shaded green areas. A warm family atmosphere where the staff knows many of the guests since the previous visits.

Bungalows are basic but quite large and spacious, everything works and is very pleasant, but this resort would do well with some more love and care. Junk and left behind rubbish could remain for quite some time and for the room cleaning, we had some more to desire.
The restaurant had good Thai food and a simple but functional breakfast buffet.

Koh Lanta, and especially Klong Dao Beach, is truly family friendly. Calm, quiet and extremely relaxed. Even in high season when there are lots of tourists Koh Lanta retains the feeling of small-scale and organic growth where much business is operated by local Thais. Klong Dao is perfect for families with children, even for very young children, the beach is so shallow that it works well to run the buggy on the beach except for an hour just at high tide.

We had a really nice stay!

We have stayed here 9 times over the past 14 yrs. My wife comes here for 2weeks before me & we feel she is totally safe here without me as the owners & staff keep an eye on her for me. The rooms have always been clean & tidy, the pool is cleaned regularly, breakfast is ample for the price. The restaurant needs working on though, probably as there is so much choice near by in Saladan town, they seem to have given up trying to compete with those places. Over all for the price & location we think it is the best hotel on that strip of beach, & we are looking forward to returning in 2013.

Room Tip: rooms at the back are quiet.

After a horrendous night at Lanta Island Resort, this was a welcome change. The bungalows seemed like they had just been built and were huge inside. There is a TV, hot water, buffet breakfast included, and a nice pool for 1600 bhat.

We booked a beachfront bungalow on a nearby resort, but when we arrived it was far from the beach, second floor and very dirty.

A short walk down the beach we found Lanta Villas. It was heavenly to be met with a smile and a welcome. They helped us get a refund from the other place, sent a taxi for our bags and made us feel very welcome.

The bungalows are basic (but very good value) very clean and with nice touches, like folder towel animals and flowers on the bed.
Remember Klong Dao is a low-key relaxed beach for families and backpackers. If you want luxury resorts - find another beach!

Restaurant is nice and very helpful. I got the best vegetarian food here of all our trip.
Every evening they get fresh seafood and cook anything you like.

A nice surprise was the excellent language skills of the staff - best so far!
