Maya Bay Resort, Koh Lanta

Independent Review

Prices & Booking


The large rooms in this resort on Klong Dao beach are rather sparsely furnished, in a style that will not wow anybody, but that guests who don't like minimalism won't like. Most people feel that the urban minimalist style looks out of place in a Thai beach setting.

There is one piece of equipment that is present in the rooms on this resort, but in none of the room of the other 120 hotels (soon to be 200) on this site - a weighing scales. Unfortunately these scales don't seem to be calibrated beyond 80 kg, so they registered 'Error' when this writer stood on them.

"Or maybe I just ate a few too many coconut curries recently".

Visitors who need a set of weighing scales while on holiday should book this resort, but for most others, it's missable - not very good value for money, and decorated in very debatable taste.

The rooms' terraces and balconies offer no privacy from the occupants of neighbouring rooms. The resort is built on 2 floors, the upstairs units have the best sea-views, while the downstairs one offer pool access. Architecture is of course a matter of taste, and some guests will love the minimalism.

"Personally, I'd prefer a sojourn in Worwood Scrubs to a stay at this place".




This room type is smaller than the other 2, but this isn't a problem, as the other two types suffer from lots of wasted empty space. These is one Superior room that has a great sea-view, the others have no significant sea-viewe at all.
This room is the best in the resort, and is better than the more expensive Deluxe and Suite room types.



Not to be reccommended, except to those missing the office architecture back home.
They are comfortable, but as sterile as office waiting rooms, well - almost.



One of these 2 units is a good but expensive option for a family with small children. The downstairs unit is beachfront, and offers direct pool access, so parents can easily supervise their children without having to follow them around everywhere. The upstairs unit isn't so grear for families, but gets a better view.
