My husband and I just returned from our Thailand vacation and the highlight of the entire trip was ko lanta. It was an amazing little island. The resort lets you rent a scooter for 300 baht which I definitely recommend. Also, don't miss out on the massages. Omg the massages are amazing!!! The cocktails at the bar and food are...

This is a lovely resort, very private and secluded once inside but right in the heart of Prae Ae with it's buzzy shops and restaurants and transport to Saladan - a really good location. The resort itself is very well run, with separate bungalows in beautiful grounds. There is a beach bar and cabanas, a lovely beach, and a restaurant...

Awesome for the way the Joe and his team looked after us. Awesome for the quality of the small, but very personable hotel. Awesome dinners after cocktails watching the sun set. Awesome location at the best end of Long Beach. I have no hesitation in recommending staying here.

This was the perfect place to come and relax! I'm one for quiet relaxing vacations so some my other stops in Thailand weren't ideal for me but Lanta Castaway and Koh Lanta was perfect. I like that the hotel is small, compared to other hotels I'd been staying at. The hotel is essentially one long pathway until the beach with...

Excellent situation in beautiful, well cared-for tropical gardens, situated right on a safe, child friendly beach but only 5 minutes walk from the little town. Accommodation attractive and we were looked after by very friendly and kind staff in all areas of the hotel. Delicious food, reasonably priced, with an attractive open-air restaurant and a wide selection on the menu....

What an amazing place. Lovely individual bungalows dotted throughout beautifully kept gardens, very friendly and helpful staff, stunning beach and the best shower we had in our 2.5 week trip to Thailand. Would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a relaxing slice of paradise.

I really liked the hotel and I do not know if in the island has some better. They arranged transportation from the port to the hotel, including the manager who was to greet me. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was very clean and the breakfast was very good. From the bar we can watch the sunset....

We stayed here for 5 nights for a bit more luxury and relaxation after travelling round a lot of Thailand. The whole place was stunning, made up by a variety of tropical plants and decorative pathways, as well as seeming very private from the main road. The beach was a stones throw away from the bungalows and there was always...

We had a wonderful stay here in one of the resort's Sea Breeze bungalows. The rooms were clean and equipped with everything you need. The sliding screen doors and ceiling fans were very a nice to have as well as the AC. Not only does the restaurant have amazing thai food, but they specialize in tex mex. Don't miss the...
