The hotel is honestly gross! Sooo dirty I had to sleep in my own sheets and shower with shoes. Also the reception area is full of trash and animals and all the staff and their families lying all over the hotel. Bar was decent and beach was pretty(but there's many nice bars and beaches around ko Lanta) ko Lanta is...

The best thing going for this hotel is that it is the most reasonable hotel on the beach in Kantiang Bay, Koh Lanta. I stayed in a Garden View Bungalow. It was basic but spacious and did indeed have a very nice view of the garden. It was far enough away from the bar that it was quiet at night....

Rude, obnoxious, intimidating staff. We are two young girls travelling Thailand and have never been more disappointed. We were planning on staying here for 4 nights to relax ... The photos and description do not match this place and for the price we paid we could have stayed somewhere much nicer. We paid for a beachfront bungalow and we received...

Koh Lantas most visited and famous beach bar called the why not bar, with live band on the actual resort. Facilities; bar, restaurant and travel agency.

I had a great time staying here. The rooms were decent, insect free (a big plus after encountering six cockroaches at once in my bungalow in Railay!), and air conditioned. The resort is located right on the beach, and the restaurant is a wonderful place to enjoy some food while watching the waves. Nearby there are helpful businesses such as...

Kantiang Bay View Resort is located right by a wonderful beach. The room was ok, it somehow looked like it was "top of its class" 30 years ago.. The "Whats Up" bar lying next to it is super nice, with live music every night. Its indeed nice for relaxing after over-crowed Phi Phi! The staff is also helpful with renting...

We stayed in the most expensive rooms. The bungalows had just recently been built. They were very nice and upmarket with a big bed and big bathroom. Nice porch too. Having just been built though, there was not yet a pathway built to our rooms and since it was raining in Koh Lanta in our stay there, we had to...

Not a 5-star resort, but I enjoyed it there. You spend most of your time on the beach, in the beacg bar, on a boat or at the Drunken sailor at night, so the aircon room was fine for me. Spent hardly any time in it. Preferred Koh anta vibe to over-commercialised Phuket or over-crowded Phi Phi. Enjoyed the relaxing...

This place was really wonderful. It certainly had its negative aspects and you can find cheaper and nicer accommodations but the location is most desirable. The beach here is mesmerizing and I saw fireflies out on the beach at night. Kayaking out onto the andaman sea in the middle of the night was one of the most exciting parts of...

We stayed at the Kantiang Bay View resort in Jan 2013. We paid extra to get the Beach Bungalow (E1), but even with paying extra the room was quiet cheap. The resort location is great. A quiet resort with great views. The resort has "hosts" the Why Not bar, and has a restaurant. The restaurant food was OK - however...
