We spent 5 days there and it's the perfect place to stay.
Perfectly located on the beach, it is peaceful and one of the most quiet.
Great staff and manager.
The villas are wide, clean and were made up every day. The bathroom however was tiny, a bit dark. Beautiful garden, great pool. Cooking is tasty.
For sure not the best accomodation in asia, but for sure the best on this Island and of a great level indeed.
The Island in itself is great for a real break-up

The hotel is ok - not nearly as nice as we had anticipated, but ok. Breakfast was not as good as in many other hotels we've been to in Thailand.
We were also a bit unlucky, as swimming in the sea was not possible as the water was filled (really - filled!) with small jellyfish.
The island is as calm as promised. What surprised us, was that the hotels on the island are somehow touristic and the restaurants don't serve good original thai food. We stayed the earlier part of the vacation on one of Ko Lanta's more peaceful beaches and hoped to get back there the whole time we were at Ngai.

The hotel has lost it's charm over the years. It probably used to look beautiful 10 years ago but lack of maintenance makes the place look bad. Rooms are fine though, they are clean and comfortable. Food is ok and staff is friendly. For us it was overpriced though.

Koh Ngai is a amazing island though and we wouldn't have missed it for the world. The Thanya Resort could have looked better but it did not stop us from having a wonderful time on the island!

Beautifully located at the end of the beach, Thanya offers a relaxing atmosphere. We went on a Four Islands tour and decided then and there that we would stay a couple of nights at Koh Ngai.
We were picked up from our ferry by longtail boat and dropped off at the beach. At the reception we received drinks whilst going through the check-in process. We decided to splurge and get a Beachfront Villa, which was located about 15-20 meters from the beach. I'm guessing we got a family room of sorts since it had two double beds. Room was spotlessly clean and was kept so for the duration of our stay (3 nights). A small patio with two chairs and a table outside the room. Unfortunately the pathway to the restaurant went right outside of our room so there was not as much privacy as you'd might expect from a Beachfront Villa.

Not an unlimited amount of sunbeds available, but as long as you get up in time you should be able to get one. Pool and outdoor showers were great! Staff was very friendly and some spoke English, although most staff will greet you in English they don't actually speak any. Restaurant serves good thai food and some western food we didn't try. Also, they play the same CD of easy-listening western pop songs over and over again. There's a restaurant further up the beach that serves good food at lower prices. If you're heading there for dinner, remember to bring a flashlight as there's little to no lighting on the beach apart from the resorts. Also the sand on this particular beach can make it a tough walk.

Snorkeled by the beach one day and had to pay to rent a mask and fins, which honestly I think should have been included in the price.
This hotel really tries their best to make you feel at home, but throw out the western music and play some chill thai music in the restaurant instead and let the staff that doesn't speak English greet you in thai.

All in all it was a great stay and I would definitely stay here again!

We were here during the low season and it was amazing. We stayed at the beach front bungalow which included a hearty, delicious breakfast and had the long stretch of white sandy beach all to ourselves. For activities, ask H and he will hook you up with a day trip to Emerald cove, which must not be missed! A resort with excellent service and a very peaceful place, you could practically hear the waves crashing from your bedroom. Though the price is a little higher during the low season but my friends and I agreed that it was worth it.
