Baan Lanta Resort, Koh Lanta

Independent Review

Page Navigation
Prices & Booking


This well-designed and competently constructed resort is located at the northern tip of Kantiang beach, located on a hillside by the beach.

Kantiang is a gorgeous beach that was voted the best beach in Thailand by the Sunday Times in 2009. This resort is the best 3 star resort on the beach. Click here for more on Kantiang beach.

There is a little way to walk to get to the beach from the bungalows, but not far, and the views from the sea-view bungalows more than compensate the guest for the effort.
There is a pretty beach bar and restaurant, a smallish pool, an inexpensive spa, and the great Why Not bar, which plays live music every night during high season, is a short stroll along the beach.

This bar can be a bit too close for comfort on party nights, which happen once every month or so in high season.


People who are light sleepers are recommended to avoid the Sea-view Bungalows, which are nearer the bar, and to request one of the Deluxe Poolview Villas, which are furthest away from the beach and the bars.

While not the best value resort on Koh Lanta, the prices charged are reasonable for the standard of the rooms and the shared facilities provided.

Service standards and a bit hit-and-miss, so if you get upset easily by things like missing soap bars or slow towel delivery, you are advised to stay elsewhere.

The real draws for this resort are the stylish rooms and the great location, on Lanta's best beach. It is the only 3 star resort on Kantiang bay, except for the Phra Nang Inn, which is located right next to the Why Not bar, and is therefore not recommended due to nighttime noise.


Sea-view Bungalow

These Balinese-style bungalows are attractively designed and built mostly out of gleaming hardwood.
They have immaculate bathrooms, a comfy sofa and a pair of large Thai-style cushions in front of the TV & DVD player. The large and comfortable bed is decorated with s colourfull buth not garish throw, which donated a welcome splash of colour to the otherwise soft tones used in the decor.
The balconies contain 2 comfy loungers. The room with the best seaview is, surprise surprise, the one nearest the sea, contact us and we'll see if it's available for your dates


Deluxe Pool View

These are exactly the same as the Sea-view bungalows, minus the sea-view.
One of them does have a small but worthwhile sea-view, but the resort are considering re-classifying it as a Sea-view Bungalow, contact us and we'll see if it's still charged out as a Deluxe Pool View bungalow, and if it's available for your dates.
The bathrooms in this resort are stylishly designed and usually but not always spotlessly clean.



The above rates are net per room per night and inclusive of service charge and breakfast for 2 people.
