Location
This beach hotel is located on one of the most scenic islands in Thailand, surrounded by the Andaman Sea. Comprising beautiful white sand beaches and a myriad of small islands, Koh Lanta is fast becoming a destination of choice for those seeking a holiday away from the hustle and bustle of the big city.
Facilities
In keeping with the owner's philosophy of providing a total escape, this beach hotel is an oasis of barefoot elegance. Tucked away on a remote Thai island along a three-quarter-mile long white sand beach and surrounded by a lush tropical forest, the resort offers guests all the modern comforts, a selection of excellent restaurants, an abundance of water activities, and a spectacular sunset every evening. The establishment comprises a total of 48 accommodation units and welcomes its guests into a lobby with a hotel safe. On-site facilities include a hairdressing salon, Internet access (fees apply) and a laundry service. Guests arriving by car can leave their vehicles in the nearby car park and those wishing to explore the local surroundings can hire bikes from reception. The establishment also includes a life-size traditional Thai house as a museum so that guests can view the culture from a local Thai person's perspective. This is a resort experience that can only be found in Koh Lanta, Thailand.
Rooms
These bungalows are built in the traditional Thai architectural style. The hotel's goal is to provide its guests with maximum comfort while experiencing Thai culture. Each bungalow is built with high ceilings with hand-made ceramic tiled roofs. Ceramic tiles not only make each bungalow look different, but they are also the most effective way to keep the heat out of the bungalow. The bungalows come with en suite bathrooms with a shower, bath and hairdryer, and in-room amenities include king-size beds, satellite/cable TV, a kitchenette with a mini fridge and tea and coffee making facilities, and individually regulated air conditioning. Accommodation units also come with a private balcony or terrace.
Sports/Entertainment
Guests can enjoy a wide range of resort facilities, including dining and beach bar options. Two swimming pools can be found on site and they feature mountain and beach views. One of the pools is a designated children's swimming area. A full serviced Thai Spa and beauty salon is on hand to provide services ranging from manicures to massages (fees apply for the spa treatments and massages). Alternatively guests can enjoy a lazy day sipping the finest coffee on Koh Lanta and sampling a variety of freshly baked pastries at Sea Cow Bakery, right by the beach. Fees apply for the water sports, which include diving, sailing and canoeing. Guests can also play paddle tennis, go horse riding (fees apply), or visit the local sandy beach for a game of beach volleyball (fees apply).
