This resortused to suffer from night-time noise on party nights, but this is no longer the case, as the noisy beach bar has moved to a new spot 200 metres away. Don't be put off by the tripadvisor reviews complaining about night-time noise, these reviews are out of date.
This modest yet comfortable resort is arguably the best budget establishment on the island.
Its pool isn’t huge, but it doesn’t need to be, as there are only a few rooms in this family-friendly and family-run resort. The resort’s Moonwalk Bar is one of Khlong Kong Beach’s friendly and low-key foci for fun.
Whilst the rustic architecture isn’t up to the superlative standard of that at the Where Else Resort or the Lanta Emerald, extensive and attractive use of driftwood has been made in the bar and restaurant areas, which overlook the beach.
The fab Ting Tong bar at the nearby Emerald resort is a livelier nightlife hot-spot than the Moonwalk's bar, but many people prefer the less smokey atmosphere in the Moonwalk's bar.
For those who like to party the odd night, but sometimes stay in and relax at a quieter resort, the Moonwalk is a great choice, as several of Lanta's best bars are within easy walking distance, but not too close by for comfort.
Whether you like concrete or bamboo bungalows, whether you're a couple, single, family or senior, the Moonwalk has a room to suit you.
If you're a fan of coconut trees you'll love the Moonwalk. None of the resorts on this stretch of Klong Kong beach has laid a finger or a chainsaw on any of the grove of lofty palm that tower above and all round the Moonwalk, donating welcome shade as well as considerably enhancing the atmosphere. The grove is particularly beautiful in a light breeze on a starry night, when the coconut palms sway with a stately grace that nonone can fail to appreciate, and are set against a backdrop of stars on an inky black clear sky.
A great spot to take in the atmosphere of the coconut tree grove is the resort's beachfront relaxation hut, which is covered in large cushions and where the only 'walls' are dangling lines of seashells. Guest can also enjoy the sound of the waves lapping the shore, and thoroughly relax - maybe after a couple of hours' indolence gives way to itchy feet, take a couple of steps, and jump in the pool.
Beachfront Deluxe Family Rooms
Whilst the decoration is a little garish and not in the best possible taste, the connecting rooms represent good value for money and are recommended for parents with older children.
On the right, there's an image of the interiors of both rooms. The second from the top image on this page was taken from the terrace of the pair closest to the beach.
The pair of rooms nearest the beach are a particularly good choice for families, as parents can supervise their children frolicking in the pool nearby, while comfortably lounging around on their sizeable terrace. Contact us to check if this pair is available.
These are an exellent choice for those for like an immaculate concrete bungalow (who wants those bugs that bamboo bungalows let in anyway?), but want to stay at a resort with rustic Thai architecture in the resort’s communal areas.
The bungalows’ balconies are on the small side, but are perfectly adequate for a shorter stay. They have air-con, attractive views of mature palm trees and are only a few metres from the beach.
For most people, the best ones are the ones closest to the beach, contact us and we'll be 99% likely to be able to get you, if you give us enough notice.
These bamboo rooms are the same as the Deluxe rooms, except that they have fans instead of air-con and are a little further from the beach.
They are modestly constructed, but are as spotless as the Superior rooms. They have larger balconies, and are a great choice for those who like a bamboo bungalow.
Most of these bungalows are slightly scruffy but still clean, but the two furthest from the beach are not recommended, as they are really rather ugly and situated in a grotty spot.
The above rates are net per room per night and inclusive of service charge and breakfast for 2 people.
