Baan Laanta Resort & Spa
Ranked #44 of 85 Hotels in Ko Lanta
Reviewed 14 March 2016

We spent 5 days at Baan Laanta and we didn't want to leave. The location is amazing if you are looking for calm and rejuvenating rest. The resort is located right next to a beautiful beach, which is not overpopulated, so you can have privacy and a lot of space. There are a lot of shops and places to eat on the street next to the resort, but you will rarely need to go there :) On the beach there are some rocky parts, so be careful with your feet or get around to find the clear sandy spots.

There are several very good places to eat on the beach - we tried Baan Laanta restaurant, the restaurant next to Why not bar and Same, same, but different at the far end of the beach. Same, same is definitely our favourite atmosphere-wise. Food was great in all three.

If you're looking for entertainment Why Not bar is the place - live music, interaction with the audience and amazing fire show at the beach in front of the bar, every night around 9:30 pm.

The resort itself is comfortable, great pool area. Spacious rooms and great beds. The bungalows are a bit old, which is visible, but they are still very good for the price. The staff is super helpful and cheerful, we felt welcomed and taken care of.

There is a bar in the resort, one next to it plus Why Not bar, so it might get a little noisy, especially if you have bungalow with a sea view. The good news is they all close around 12 o'clock, so you can sleep undisturbed. If you go to bed earlier, get ear plugs.

If you want a massage - go to the place next to Why Not bar. We were totally unimpressed with the quality of the massage at the resort studio.

Room Tip: For a quieter time, choose bungalow with garden view.

this is a small resort with beautiful bungalows. the most bungalows are around the pool, which was a very nice pool, with cool !! water, which was great for cooling down.
we stayded in a seaview bungallow, they are more expensive, but....in the evening it is not a pleasure sitting at your terrace because of the smell from the food/ bbq below.
there is alse a bar with playing music till 1100/1200 pm.
the bungalows were cleaned every day, and the breakfast was better than normal in thailand. the views from our bungalow were great, sea and mountains!
saying all of that...the bungalows are a bit pricy.

It was a really great hotel with nice bungalows with plenty of room for 3. The staff was really sweet even though their english wasn't too good. The breakfast was tasty. From the restaurant you can walk stright down on the beach. When the tide is low there is however a lot of rocks on the Beach. But the bay is so pretty (ekspecially from the bungalows with ocean-view) and the Vibe is relaxed.

This was our second visit to Kantiang Bay and this time we weren’t on a Pimilai budget even though it was amazing. We stayed for 4 nights having booked a sea view room and loved it.
The room was spacious, the beds really comfortable, stacks of towels. It was kept beautifully clean and with a great balcony somewhere to spend time chilling rather than just a place to sleep. Being picky on the room – the pillows were too thick for me.
The resort is 20 (ish) steep and uneven or steps up from the beach and has a great bar and restaurant with food reasonably priced and very tasty, and stacks of atmosphere in the bar. The rooms are all traditional Thai with either a sea view or around the pool, which had plenty of shade.
Overall we thought the resort represented great value, it’s a great setting to get to know some local folk as well as visitors, the hotel team were extremely helpful with transfers and requests and as it’s on our favourite beach , we are sure to return.
The one thing I wish the resort would invest in (and hence no 5 stars) is a few more loungers around the pool and on the beach – ideally ones with mattresses. If it’s a lounging on the beach holiday you’re after you may struggle to get a bed and even then it won’t be very comfortable.

Go for the great food, atmosphere at the bar and the perfect location end of the beach to step into the small town and to visit the bars and restaurants.

I didn't stay in the resort but the bar was a nice place to have a drink at the beginning of the long stretch of sandy beach that makes the Kantiang Bay. The Bartenders were a lot of fun and the company is chill but spirited. I'll be back.
