“Great Value”
Reviewed 22 November 2013

We loved our stay here - it was a refreshing change from some of our other guest houses.
Location is great, they've done a beautiful job with the garden and rooms.
David could not have been more helpful and really made our stay perfect.
2 minute walk to an absolutely stunning (and quiet!) beach.

The only slight issue is the 5am wake up call (next to a mosque), I couldn't sleep through it but in a way it added to the charm of Ancient Realm.

I would definitely stay again.

We had a brilliant time at ancient realm, originally booked for four nights and stayed for two weeks! David was extremely helpful and hospitable. The hotel is in a brilliant location, just a two second walk from some brilliant restaurant s and a two minute walk to the beach. Our only negative comment about this place is how rude the lady who served breakfast/cleaned was, she served us a different breakfast to everyone else and when trying to engage in conversation on simply say hello she would just roll her eyes. All in all it is a great place to stay and I would definitely recommend it!

We stayed at Ancient Realm for 4 nights this month and on the whole had a nice stay.

Good points - it's a relaxed environment with a nice pool, the owners are very friendly and the rooms were cleaned to a good standard.

Bad points - the staff were at times quite rude, especially the lady serving breakfast. It says that it has its own private beach but in fact it is a five minute walk to the beach. There is a mosque behind the accomodation so be prepared for a 5 am wake up call. You might sleep through it if you are a heavy sleeper.

Despite the bad points we still enjoyed our stay here.

We booked 3 nights but stayed for 5 and loved our time here. We then returned a few days later with family for a further two nights. The rooms are great, clean, well kept, fun décor, all necessary amenities, and some really cool extra's like the complementary basket with chocolate and a postcard etc... loved the pool and garden setting. Each room has it own veranda where you can have your breakfast if you choose. The owners were amazing went all out to make our stay relaxing and fun, Overall great value for money. The mosque didn't bother us after the first night and I certainly never smelt any cat pee.
Thanks Glen, David & staff for making our stay so memorable!

We only stayed for a night, but it was quite cute and clean. The owners were very friendly and helped booked our ferries back.

The resort is right near a mosque and if you are a light sleeper you will be woken up by the early morning prayer callout.

Overall, we didn't love Koh Lanta and found the beaches to be lacking compared to phi phi, but if you are heading to Koh Lanta, I would recommend this location.

The location of this resort is great, the bay is beautiful, just 2 min walk.
The resort itself is small and nice, but need some renovation in the rooms.
Swimming Pool is very small, for 2-3 people, we dont use it anyway.
The smell of cats pee in the garden.
So mixed feelings about this place.

Stayed for three nights in August

Location; kantiang bay, a few minutes walk from the beach, next to shops restaurants and convenient store, pharmacy. Laundry service and spa next door.

Facilities; small pool with sunbeds in pretty garden
with traditional Thai buildings- restaurant and bar. Very cosy and familiar setting, specially loved the calming lounge music playing in the garden at night while sitting in one of the restaurant bungalows, enjoying a tasty thai meal and drink, so relaxing. The owners are a charming Australian couple, at your service with anything I needed like arranging transport to the airport or excursions.

Restaurant; set breakfast included in price, simple and tasty. Service in restaurant is great, prices fair and the Thai food very tasty.

Rooms
Spacious rooms with large bed (on the hard side) fridge, bathroom and terrace. Simple yet Clean and comfy with all little details you could expect in a 5* hotel like complementary gift basket, beach and pool towels, bottle opener (often missing!) and free maps over the island.

Value
For 800baht per night in low season including breakfast, good location and excellent service , I'd say this is the best hotel deal in koh lanta. Definitely coming back.

Only negative is the proximity to the mosque , with the prayer call out at 5 am, bring your earplugs!
