Southern Lanta Resort

Ko Lanta is the perfect place to escape the crowds and nightlife and enjoy secluded beaches and lush mountains. We definitely recommend it to traveling couples! It is well known for its world class dive sites and for having the most blondes we have ever seen on one island (it is being increasingly colonized by Scandinavian expats).

Resort location: Ko Lanta, Krabi, Thailand’s third largest island (6kms wide, 30kms long).

The Resort

Southern Lanta Resort is green and lush and located right on the beach.

The buffet breakfast is complimentary with the room rate and has a wide variety of dishes.
We also enjoyed walking along the beach at night and eating at the neighbouring resorts.

The Room:

One of our favourite travel hacks is to find a great resort with pools, bars, beach views and other nice facilities, and then booking their cheapest “back garden” room. This way you still pay a low price but you get the same great facilities as the people who are paying triple your price!!

January 2013: We stayed in the Garden View Bungalow for 2200 Baht per room/ per night (Peak Season). The bungalow was nice and clean and had an ensuite bathroom with a hot shower, air-conditioning, a safe, double bed, and free wifi.
