Kaw Kwang Beach Resort
Ranked #46 of 85 Hotels in Ko Lanta
Reviewed 24 January 2013 via mobile

We booked the cozy hill room for two nights and it was more than enough. The cozy hill rooms are a lot cheaper than the other rooms and you could really notice that. Besides that it was up in the hill, the surrounding was nothing special, the room had mold and cockroaches. And when we told the reception about the cockroaches and ask for some bugspray, they just gave it to us and seemed they were not caring at all. The swimming pool looks nice, but has it sharp edges and you cant see the difference between the lower en deeper parts (for children). If you're not a big spender, the service isn't that great. There are a lot of people hanging around en not really working. Overall we didnt like it all!

We booked a one week stay here. If we had known what this place is like we never would have come here. Maybe for a two nights is okay but not for a longer time. Hotel is really worn down and everything is dirty. Staff smokes sigarettes while people eat breakfast and cleaning bungalows only means making bed and changing new towels. Bathroom was dirty and there was cockroaches. Place is really out of date!

The reviews for this hotel were so varied, we were a little concerned about what we would find, however we were very happy with the 'bang for our buck'. Wonderfully quiet and relaxed, excellent breakfast (although they could keep the hot food warmer), beautiful pool area and the rooms were very clean. Yes, the place could do with some renovation but its functional and very comfortable. Staff all very helpful and polite, could not fault them. Expensive to get to town (THB50 per person) but hiring a vehicle would solve that problem. Restaurant meals very good and as to be expected, a little on the high side, however the service is good and the view is great!

It's a good hotel a bit run down, the bungalows are comfy but the bathrooms are mediocre, very old and need redoing. The swimming pool is great!! and the staff are friendly especialy OOY who is very nice and genuine. Very close to Ban saladan and activities, you can rent a scooter easily at reception or tuk tuk. I strongly recommend this place!

Room Tip: Very quite place, good rooms and great swimming pool

Staff not very friendly, food in the restaurant not eatable, pool full of sharp edges, far from everything (not in a good way...), and the room... We changed room because of moldy smell, got a room that was slightly better, but the whole family ended up sick (this after traveling for 5 weeks without sickness). Lots of other hotels that offer better location, same price but a a lot higher standards. Other guests had the same complaints.

Stayed here at the start of our trip in Thailand.beach lovely,pool nice but very tired and needs a lot of work as its v run down.
It was low season and it was just me and my boyfriend and another couple staying.woke up to find a man going through my bag in the room.he escaped with my bag with money and passports.absolute nightmare. We went to find security guard who was asleep.somehow he nor the other one who were maybe 10metres from our bungalow didn't hear us screaming.very strange.somehow the robber knew exactly how to break in the window and where everything was in the room......
The owner told us same thing happened in same bungalow a few yrs ago and asked would we stay another night to try catch the robber!
The minimum i expect from a place is to be safe and we just weren't there and we have our suspicions.

This was my first trip to koh lanta and we chose this place by chance, they have the friendliest staff, amazing large pool facing the beach, if you r looking for quiet relaxed time its the place for u, although a bit far from the village and u need tuk tuk or bike which is managable.
They have cute bungalows facing the beach and overall it was so great we extended our stay for 5 extra nights, great price.
Just remeber everything around this village is dead from 8 pm ;)
