Pimalai Resort & Spa

Pimalai Resort & Spa

Koh Lanta Yai|1.97km from city center
We have been coming to the Pimalai for 20 years and it never fails to deliver. We were lucky enough to spend 15 days at the resort this time, and it just seems to get better and better. Its hard to put your finger in what makes The Pimalai so unique. It has a genuine rustic Thai charm, combined with the efficiency of a well run Western hotel. The balance is perfect and never disappoints. It could be the stunning beach, the tranquil setting, the crystal clear waters, the fantastic food or the delicious cocktails at happy hour that make it so amazing, but I think it’s actually the incredible staff that really make you feel like you are one of the family, that really sets this place apart. The staff can not do enough for you. Even the gardeners (who work tirelessly to keep the grounds looking beautiful) stop to say hello when you walk past. There has been a change of guard since last year. The lovely French Manager Franck has handed over to the equally charming new French manager Brice. The transition has been seamless and the hotel is in safe hands. We managed to do a few things this time that we’ve never done before. I did a wonderful Thai cooking class with the head chef. What an experience. One I’d recommend to anyone. We also did a sunset snorkelling trip to Koh Ha. This was spectacular. The fish we saw were incredible, an the guys on the boat were so helpful. Then followed by a sunset cruise back to the hotel. Just WOW!! As always the food in the restaurants was delicious. I get the feeling that it’s only going to get better with the new food and beverage manager putting his mark on the menus. As always, we didn’t want to leave, and we can’t wait to get back.

Nirvana Beach Resort, Koh Lanta Sha Extra Plus

Koh Lanta Yai|4.1km from city center
I am grateful to the architects, you have made this hotel beautiful, especially the one-bedroom pool villa near the sea is beautiful! It gave us the first impression of luxury and shock! The most expensive room type in this hotel is unique on the same beach. In addition, even if you have a normal room type, you can enjoy the beautiful public pool. However, what does not match its expensive price is its service. In addition to the proprietress, other employees, including the hotel front desk and restaurant waiters, cannot communicate normally in English, resulting in many inconveniences in the check-in process. No matter what room type, even the villa pool room for four thousand one nights does not have any welcome fruit, or any other value-added services and small items to give you the feeling of ”VIP”. The cleaning service of the room is very untimely, and it is always embarrassing to clean when the guests are there! And the cleaning is sloppy, the table is not cleaned... In addition, the breakfast buffet is mainly for Westerners' bread and eggs, but there is no cheese, no cold cut meat, even jam, yogurt has a taste, I have seen other foreign customers disappointed eyes. When we asked if there was an Asian breakfast, the waiter told us: Sorry, no! Well...the constant breakfast for four days was a bit boring, and on the last day we had very stale bread...there was no freshly squeezed juice on the drink side, but fortunately the freshly ground coffee in the hotel was really good. In addition, although there is an employee on duty in the pool bar, the cocktail he made is really good, especially the taste recommended by the boss mango daiquira is amazing, which is better than the first five-star hotel on the island we went to later. Everyone must try it. In short, we still had a wonderful holiday in the hotel. After all, the mentality is very important when traveling. Every time I think about the price we paid, I feel that it is not worth it...

The hotel service is very good, they are very enthusiastic, and they greet us when they see people. My mother is allergic, so I helped my mother replace all the scented bedding. The room is very clean and tidy, and all the rooms can see the sea. I found that the sea view of the smallest villa room will be partially blocked, but the mountain better. My room is on the top, and my mother is in the first row facing the beach, with a good view. The hotel has a swimming pool and a restaurant. The environment is very quiet and beautiful. In a small bay, the waves are not big enough to go into the water. The food in the restaurant is very good and the price is not expensive. It is about the same price as I went to the Diamond Cliff Restaurant. We ate three meals in the hotel. The hotel has a car to send to all parts of the island, and each place has a price list. We chartered a car for half a day and four hours, 2,500 baht. Go to the beach 10 kilometers away, 400 baht one way, I think the price is also very good. You can call the hotel to pick it up at Saladan Pier. This is free, but it seems that it is not delivered. Horse * chicken needs to be reserved, very cheap, Thai massage technique is very good, only 600 baht per person for 50 minutes. And it feels very good to face the sea. The elder sister who massages is very careful and will observe your various expressions to pay attention to the severity. My dad gave an early tip of 100 baht, and actually gave him an extra 20 minutes.

Lanta IL Mare Beach Resort
4.1/59 Reviews

Lanta IL Mare Beach Resort

Koh Lanta Yai|5.9km from city center
We stayed a week here (after a week in Phrae Ae at Thai House Beach Resort, and before a week in Kaw Kwang at Twin Bay. It was excellent value at £60/night with breakfast in high season). The room was well-equipped with wardrobe fridge, good aircon etc and a good shower, and a nice veranda; rooms were clean with towels and bedding changed daily. Sunbeds, mattresses, toys, beach towels and parasols were available for the beach and the small pool (a big plus). Reception staff were friendly, but 3 of the 4 restaurant and bar staff were often too busy chatting or on their phones, or just surly (our only criticism of the place), so we chose to eat elsewhere. The biggest plus of all is its location, and we preferred it to Phrae Ae (Long Beach). Klong Nin beach is 2.2 km long and Ilmare is at the very northern end by a little rocky headland and klong (small tidal stream), which is very pretty and interesting, with safe bathing (the beach to the south is straight sand until you reach the next headland). There are a few restaurants in the immediate vicinity, and an excellent German Bakery. Then 500 meters south of Ilmare (a 10 minute stroll along the beach or dusty road) is Horizon Road, a line of resorts, bars and restaurants (recommend Kansa for a relaxing time, Richey for a lively vibe, or Otto for western food in a relaxed setting). If you cross the bridge over the klong (or paddle at low tide) there is very friendly place called Klong Nuiy Seafood where the owners may provide a half-price taxi service (500 Baht return to Lanta Old Town). Beyond that is a beautiful little bay called Klong Toab where we often swam; it is dominated by the luxury Rawi Warin resort which picked arguably the best spot in Ko Lanta. It would be hard to find a anywhere better than Lanta Ilmare for the money.

We stayed in that resort for 3 night only. The hotel was really hidden from the main road where taxi left us. The ground of the hotel area looked a bit rough and could be kept better. The reception was kind of an open space. The receptionist called Chicko was very kind and helpful. We had to wait about one hour for our room to be ready so we had a little curry lunch and beer on their terrace with a beautiful sea view. The hotel consisted from many single huts. Our hut was placed quite in the back (No 303). There was a fresh and pleasant scent in the room. Whole interior was designed in the typical Thai style, quite modern, although looked tired. The little fridge, kettle and AC worked fine. We didn’t try tv. The bathroom was quite small and dark. It looked like an extension to our hut. The marks for the improvements were visible there too. The bed was a too soft for our liking and the bedsheets were not in good quality. There was a mosquito bed net, which was very handy. The cleaning could be better too. Our little front door terrace was great to have a morning coffee or an evening drink. Breakfast were served on the higher floor next to the reception. It was ok. We had few lunches there and one dinner. The setting was very authentic, bamboo everywhere, sand under your feet. We really like their curry. The prices were comparable with other restaurants or bars although there were nearly none in the close distance. You should have some transport if you wish to go a bit further to find some shop. The pool area was beautiful. It required a lot of cleaning every morning as it was surrounded by many palms and trees. The sea was lovely too. The beach had the most fine sand we have ever stand on. There were a lot of sun beds on the beach, made of bamboo but lots of them were broken. The hotel area was invaded by many monkeys. They were cute to observe and took a picture but some of them were quite vicious. We have seen a snake next to our hut one afternoon. We did go for a half day hike to Mu Ko Lanta national park to take some nice pictures. We were a bit disappointed by the natural track. There were no animals and it cost 200baht. To sum it up, the hotel was lovely, quiet and relaxing, away from craziness. Great unspoiled surroundings but there were few things to be updated.

This is the second time I went to Koh Lanta. It was discovered when I first went. This hotel is on the north side of the hotel. It was built on a mountain. The hotel we arrived at night, the driver was not very easy to find, the hotel name was inconspicuous, the room It is a small house with a balcony, the cat is very warm, the breakfast needs to order, the breakfast restaurant can see the sea, the beach is 500 meters away from the beach and the 711, the beach people in the north are very few, the children play very well. It is also very convenient to go out to sea. I went straight to the beach for 10 minutes, which is a hotel with a small amount of shower water and a very high cost performance.
Lanta Mansion
3.5/55 Reviews
Everyone who works there is very calm and friendly, and very sweet. Always asking how you are, and wishing you a good day on your way in and out, and if you need anything, to feel free to ask. The hotel is on the 2nd floor of a family run store, so you kind of walk through it or go through the back street to access the stairs right away. It's an unusual set up at first, but you get used to it. The rooms are not fancy, but we just wanted quick access to the beach, so it was perfect. Everyone is very helpful, and help you slow down and enjoy your time. I tried to be respectful of the common spaces as much as possible, especially during prayer times. At night, the doors are locked so you have to use the back entrance, which is ok, just leave your shoes on that side :) The view of the sunset from the balcony is really nice. My first time, but I really enjoyed it.

Vacation Village Phra Nang Lanta
3.9/526 Reviews
I really like the style of the hotel and it blends perfectly with the surrounding environment, similar to some domestic homestays. The facilities are a little bit old, but they have everything they should. The rooms are large and the balcony with sea view is very awkward. There are not many varieties of breakfast, but it is completely delicious. The semi-open restaurant and garden perfectly blend with the sea view, bringing a good dining mood, which is enough to offset the shortcomings of fewer varieties. The flame dance at the bar on the side is also a highlight, making the night more exciting. The only thing that is not tolerable is the problem of bath water. The water flow is often very small. When I came back from the beach and stood under the shower head. When the dripping water could not clean the sand on my body, my heart collapsed. I stood and waited for a few minutes. It took ten minutes for the water flow to return to normal levels to finish the bath. The sea and beaches of Kantian Bay are not as good as expected. I think the comments in the comments are a bit too much. After all, Thailand has many more beautiful beaches than here. In general, it is a wonderful experience for people like me who love to lie on the balcony or garden and enjoy leisure time.

The hotel is very beautiful, and I also saw a super beautiful sunset. I highly recommend this vacation. It is very quiet. There is also a horse and chicken to enjoy in the hotel. The hotel swimming pool is also very clean and hygienic.
