This larger hotel is a good choice for functions like conferences and weddings, as it provides a wide range of amenities and accommodation options to choose from. The resort offers 185 immaculate rooms and is pleasingly Thai in architectural character.
Unlike many larger hotels, the Rawi Warin is not built according to the concrete-block style of architecture, where dozens of rooms are located in every building. The Rawi Warin, by contrast, has over 40 buildings housing its 185 rooms, meaning that it escapes the charmless and monolithic feel of the region's other large hotels.
If you are looking for a large luxury hotel outside of Phuket, there is no finer choice than this one.
Some of these rooms are seafront and overlook the sea, others have a very small sea-view. The rooms with a good sea-view are, surprise surprise, the ones nerest the sea, contact us and we'll see if we can get you one.
Very private and well-appointed, these rooms make good honeymoon and couples’ choices. There are ground floor rooms, and rooms on the single floor above them, with the upstairs rooms benefiting from better sea-views.
These rooms are large and immaculately decorated. Connecting rooms are possible, so making this a good family accommodation choice. Some of these rooms are located a fair way from the resort’s pools and restaurants, so are not ideal for families with small children.
Others are closer to the pool, so better for families. Many couples prefer a room further away from the pool and restaurant, as the atmosphere is then quieter.
Large than the Deluxe rooms, these are a more opulent choice. You get a lot of luxury for your money in one of these units.
Sunset Pool Villa
The living room is in a separate pavilion to the master bedroom so, although an extra bed in the living room is possible, younger children may not like the lack of a connecting door direct to their parents’ bedroom.
The large pool terraces are completely private and offer far-reaching sunset views over the Andaman Sea. These villas are one of the best honeymoon choices on Lanta. Four of these units are situated on a headland a fair distance from the resort’s restaurants, so many couples make extensive use of room service. There are eight in total, the other four are situated down by the beach, which makes them more convenient for the access to the resort's amenities, but less private and quiet.
Ban Rawi Suite
Doubling up just about everything bar the front door, these villas have 2 ponds, 2 bedrooms and 2 pools. The villas are immaculate and decorated to a very high standard, but all that wooden paneling and the extra pool come at a price, making the Ban Rawi Suite an expensive option.
Why anyone would actually want 2 pools anyway is a mystery - many Lanta hotels have his’n’hers wash-basins, his’n’hers toilets, his’n’hers showers, even his’n’hers wardrobes, but what is the point of his’n’hers pools? The pools are infinity-edged so dangerous for toddlers.
Smaller than the Ban Rawi Suite, but still with the somewhat pointless second pool, these apartments are also not recommended for families with small children, for safety reasons.
