Lanta Villa Resort: The middle of the beach!

We booked into this resort for 5 nights but ended up staying for 10.

Lanta Villa has lots of different bungalows, ranging from beachside, air-con ones to much cheaper, simpler rooms with fans. All rooms were bungalows with their own balconies. Ours was very clean and well looked after.

The resort is on the beach with quite a wide beach front area.

The staff in the restaurant are laid back and friendly. The Thai food there was lovely. They had a fresh fish selection every night which they'd BBQ for you.

Lanta Villa was a good place to stay - mid-range. It is on a really nice beach and it's near the main town, so it's handy if you are going to be going off on ferries or trips to the mainland - or if you want to go into Saladan for food or bars in the evenings.

There's a small pool there which looks much bigger in their hotel website photos!

Washing can be done nearby instead of at the hotel which is cheaper and there is an ATM and some mini-markets a short walk back up to the main road. Many other bars and restaurants very close to Lanta Villa so lots of variety. You can sit on the beach and watch the sun go down at most places around there.

We were happy with the place we stayed - everyone was friendly and helpful, they can arrange just about anything for you from ferries to other islands to days out to laundry.

The best thing about most places on Lanta Yai is going to be the sunset and the beach. You just can't beat sitting on the beach, having a drink and watching the sun setting over the Phi Phi islands.

New Bungalows: Tree house @ Ko Jum

I was only on Ko Jum for a few hours. My 'base' there was New Bungalows. There's quite a wide range of accomodation there ~ from the air-conditioned with full ensuite facilties to the really rustic with shared/common bathrooms.

I LOVE this treehouse. Its sooo cool :-) The only downside is that there are no toilets attached (obviously).

Uncle Jak's Steak house and Bungalow: 1st night on Ko Lanta

I was suppose to get a place over at Lanta Riviera Bungalows but the rooms there were completely blocked out that night. Instead, Lek, the guy from the resort sourced another place for me to spend the night. Hence, Uncle Jak's.

Bamboo house a little more basic than Lanta Riviera Bungalows.
