We had an unexpected 3 day stay here after our sailboat was shipwrecked on this Klong Dao beach in January 2017. Manager, Lily, who is an English -speaking Russian was one of the first on the beach with towels and offer of a room and food during high season. This freak storm had all of Koh Lanta without power, water...

Despite the language barriers, the staff were very helpful and made our stay pleasant. During our three night stay, we had almost all of our meals here because it was so good! Great wifi in the rooms.

Stayed here for 2 days with my partner, room was nice, but toilet had a little bit of nasty smell because there's no ventilation. Staff were very attentive and they helped us with our requests with no hesitation. Environment was nice but price of the rooms were pretty high.

Absolutely great! We stayed here 5 nights. People working here are fantastic and the cook at the restaurant - very talented! We tried many different dishes during our stay - they were all delicious. Best restaurant on the beach ;-) Only weak point: breakfast.

The rooms were just ok. Lumpy mattresses. A little buggy. The staff and restaurant were great. Mr. Noi was very accommodating. The location was great and convenient. It was low season so it was nice and quiet. Lots of places were closed but was happy the hotel's restaurant stayed open and the food was really good. Great yoga studio just...

We stayed in the connecting family rooms and they are huge! I loved the built in concrete platform for the bed and the counters. The decor is whimsical with statues of dinosaurs and sea creatures, adding to the appeal for kids is a little plastic slide that they put out on the beach every day. Staff are very friendly, particularly...

Simple and quirky bungalows. We stayed in the AC bungalows. Mr Noi and Nook took great care of us. Always ready to help out with anything. Nice beach. They have a couple beach chairs available and umbrellas. Nice sunset view with happy hour cocktails. Yummy restaurants nearby.

Paid higher than what other hotels were in the area after some good reviews. Was so disappointed. Hotel room was dated, grubby and was in major need of an upgrade. Hated it and was by far the worst hotel we stayed in whilst in Thailand. Only positive were the staff. The ones that spoke English were lovely and welcoming!

My stay in Koh Lanta at Cha-Ba bungalows has been one of the highlights of my Thailand trip. The whole place is arty and cool with delicious food and excellent beach-front location.

Extremely friendly staff, really chilled out relaxing environment right on the beach, they let us have happy hour about 4 hour after happy hour ended, didn't say a thing when we checked out an hour late because our taxi came at 1pm, can't wait to go back.

If you want quiet and peaceful, the the garden and Art Gallery is the place for you. We also have brand new beautiful beachfront bungalows with sea view.Or Studio bungalows that make you feel distinct with Garden view.Every bungalow is unique in it’s coloring and decorated with Art.

“We paid for a simple fan room bungalow which I think is the most budget option. Everything was completely fine, comfy bed with mosquito net. It was hot at night but we could have opted in with air-con if we wanted. Each bungalow is private, rustic and simple, painted cool colours and dark on the inside to keep the rooms cooler during the day”
