Good For Families
Not my favourite...
I can't really recommend this place, mainly because of the ignorance of their management staff. Some of them were even quite rude.... Housekeeping wasn't their strong side either: the sheets in our room weren't changed and the whole rooms was full of sand.
If you stay in a room in the main building you'll need aircon. They do heat up!
On the other hand the restaurant & bar crew were nice and the food great.
Unique Quality: The beach there is one of the best on Ko Lanta.
Bungalows ranging from 100 bhat (low season) 200 high season, to 400 bhat high season, for large spacious brick bungalows with tiled floors and fans, all with great sea views.
Unique Quality: This place is pretty isolated and a 5 minute walk down to the beach. Most people who do stay on the beach do walk up every night for the spectacular sunset though, so whether you chose to stay on the beach or up here will make no difference, you'll still do the hill every day :-) It is worth staying up here if only for the friendliest family that you'll be living with though!! Lanta Marine is just 2 minutes walk downstairs with parties most evenings and also a great bar. On the beach is the Why Not bar - with very funky bar guys and they are really capable fire dancers too...
There is an internet cafe nearbye also, and a small Mart, but if you want to be near the city, this really isn't the place for you. Ko Lanta town (Ban Saladaan) is not a party place either and there is better clothes shopping etc on Pee Pee, Phuket and Ko Pha Ngan, so there isn't really any reason to be near town.

hi, we would like to catch ferrys on the following routes in the next couple of weeks
(we may want to go in either direction!)
could anyone tell me which of these ferries runs in june? Is there a link to timetables? If the ferry is not running, is it possible (or sensible) to do it by speedboat? Any ideas of prices would also be a great help. Thanks very much
RE: ferry questions
Hello Tony !
I was there 2 times, and there are always ferrys. I've seen only timetables at the beach, written by hand, but they are not really accurate :-))
Maybe you have to wait a little bit, but you are on holiday.
If you have a travelbook (the best is lonely planet), there are infos about ferrys.
But don't worry, i think there are a lot of ferrys the day long.
In my travelbook was an info, not to take the night-ferrys, because there are more thefts, because you are sleeping.
And speedboats are also possible. It's more expensive, but if you don't have enough time, its a good possibility.
I can look into my travelbook and tell you more tomorrow, if you need more infos.
RE: RE: ferry questions
Hi there. I will try and help on some of those routes:
phuket->phi-phi -that will be running for definate
phi-phi->lanta - not sure about this but i suppose it is possible by speedboat, but most people would go from krabi
lanta->koh mook - dont think there is an official route but many guesthouses - like kantiang bay view resort, ferry people there by longtail boat.
lanta->krabi - This wasnt running when i went last juen so I just got a minivan down there
krabi->phuket - this is likely but it is quite a way i think, and msot people would get a bus.

great, thanks very much for the info, a great help
