Stately palms tower overhead, donating welcome shade and an architypically Thai tropical feel to this lovely, but pricey resort.
One of the most family-friendly resorts on Koh Lanta, the Cha Da resort on Khlong Dao Beach also has one room type that is ideal for couples. The resort’s great taste and stylish décor will please parents, whilst the open spaces and two jumbo-sized pools will keep children happily busy for hours.
This resort is popular with families, and honeymooners may find that there are rather too many small children running around, unless they stay in one of the resort’s more secluded Diamond Villas (see below for more).
The pool bar enables parents to supervise their children in the most relaxed fashion possible, while further unwinding is available at the spa.
The prices here are a touch on the steep side, contact us for the best value options on Lanta - we know all the hotels intimately - not just the room types, but which the best room numbers for each type are.
Knowing this makes all the difference in choosing the best room for you, as it's often the case that, of all rooms in hotel of the same room type, there are a few that are way better than the rest, and as good as a more expensive room type.
The resort has a good reputation for food, both Western and Thai.
As the gardeners at the Cha Da are doing such an excellent job of keeping the flowers in bloom, we thought we'd add this little section of images, as a tribute to their skill and hard work. Don't go away, the room type reviews follow the images below.
Silver and Gold Suites
These suites are identical in layout. The Gold Suites are on the ground floor and have pool access terraces, whilst the Silver Suites are on floor above and have balconies.
The layout of these suites is far from ideal. The bedroom is situated at the back nearest the door, with the bathroom in the middle and a small TV lounge nearest the terrace or balcony, in which an extra bed can be placed.
The TV lounge is cramped and the layout means that the bedrooms are rather gloomy. Whilst these room types are not particularly highly recommended, children won’t care about the lack of light in the main bedroom, and will absolutely love the Gold Suite’s direct pool access.
These 2 bedroom apartments overlook one of the resort’s pools, so parents can supervise their children from their balconies.
They are an expensive and opulent option which are reasonable value for money considering the superlative standard of the rooms.
Huge and well-appointed, these suites have 2 bedrooms, with an extra bed possible in both bedrooms.
They are a great choice for families.
They can each accommodate up to 6 people, plus infants.
These villas are one of the best choices for honeymooners on Koh Lanta.
The partial sea-view is nothing to write home about, but these pool villas are beautifully decorated and fairly private.
They are located away from the pools and family accommodation so, whilst there are a few children running around, these villas are out of earshot of all the children in the pools.
