Best beach in Thailand ”
We booked the Deluxe Beach Front for 2 nights to spoil ourselves a bit. After being there for barely an hour we decided to extend our stay with another day =). Mr. Pong picked us up from the pier and our whole experience of Baan Rim Lay was just superb. They truly have something good going on and I hope it will stay that way. Our room was very spacious and extremely well furnished with everything you could hope for. There definitely was a level of luxury which you don't usual find at 'budget' accommodations in Thailand. Attention to detail and small things like a welcome drink makes all the difference to the experience. Our room had a terrace which overlooked the beach and we had our own private sun chairs and umbrella. Every room has it's own outdoor shower which is a nice touch. We did not have breakfast included so cannot comment but from what we saw it looked pretty good. Mr Pong rented us a scooter at a very good rate which we used to explore the island. Generally it does help if you have your own transport as everything is quite far apart and there is no public transport option except for tuk-tuks. PLENTY of beach side restaurants to choose from right next door so there's no reason to go to far - there's a 7-11 about 5 minutes walk away. Klong Nin is truly a gem and after seeing more of Lanta I think the beach there is one of the best in the area. I can only but strongly recommend Baan Rim Lay to any traveler.
Incredible staff, perfect location, beautiful view”
We had an incredible stay at the Baan Rim Lay Hotel. The location on Klong Nin beach is perfect for accessing both the liveliness to the north and the beautiful marine reserve to the south. The deluxe beach bungalow was great - very large, very clean, and very put-together. We had our own private porch with two lounge chairs, and the beach was 7 or 8 steps away, complete with two private beach chairs and umbrella. The beach is pristine, gorgeous sunsets, lined with lots of little restaurants and bars that blend into the trees. And the owner was incredibly accommodating and courteous - we had to make a trip to the hospital for a rabies vaccine because one of us had been bitten by a monkey on a different island, and the owner drove us there for free (20 min), waited an hour for us while we got the shots, and drove us back. So kind. We also rented a scooter from him for very cheap - great way to explore Lanta! We will definitely return if we are fortunate enough to be back in Thailand!
I am so thankful that we chose Baan Rim Lay. Personally I think that there is no point staying in a 5* hotel when you can have beach yard at your doorstep for much cheaper price. But then again, it's up to one's preference if they prefer luxury (pool and good breakfast). It is a family-run budget hotel; Mr Pong & Mrs Yoong cater all our needs during our stay. I love the fact that our Deluxe Beachfront room was so spacious and has completed set of room amenities. The bed was large and comfy. Every room comes with their own sunbeds so you don't have to share. It is situated at Klong Nin beach and also strategically located to restaurants, food markets, massage places and mini markets. My only regret is, I should stay here longer.
Me and my Thai girlfriend had an excellent stay at Baan Rim Lay. The service was just outstanding. Everything was very clean all the time. We had our private beach chairs provided by the hotel, so there was no hurry in the morning. The beach has been cleaned everyday by the owner. Restaurants and some bars are just nearby and you don't even have to wear shoes to get there because you can walk along the beach. Since Klong Nin Beach is a quiet place with a muslim majority, I can not recommend it for younger crowds, looking for fun and parties. There are mainly families and younger couples there. We will keep this place in good memory and hope to come back again soon.
Cozy place run by nice family”
This is the third time we visit Baan Rim Lay and we'll be back! Situated in the middle of the Klong Ning Beach this is the perfect place to charge the batteries. From the terraces outside the rooms you are only about 30 m from the water line. The rooms are very well taken care of every day by mrs Yoong. You find what you need in the rooms: AC, fridge, water boiler, hot water shower. Klong Nin isn't any place to party all night long , then you have to go somwhere else. No crowds on the beach. This is where to go if you want to have a recovering holiday. The owner, mr Pong, helps you with bookings for different tours, taxi to airport, hiring MC, etc.
amazing place to stay!”
Baan Rim Lay was an amazing experience. Very clean, quiet and great location in Koh Lanta. The beach front was beautiful and the water was nice to swim in. Mr Pong and his family who own the hotel are very helpful and kind. We rented a scooter from him for 3 days and toured the island. Restaurants around Baan Rim Lay are great too. Everything about the hotel and location is great. I highly recommend. We traveled and stayed in 5 different places in Thailand and 5 different hotels/cabana's and this was by far our favourite location and place to stay!
Cute Hotel in a Great Location”
We stayed at Baan Rim Lay for a week while enjoying the island of Koh Lanta. The location is amazing, literally 9 steps from the beach. Our terrace faced the beach and we enjoyed beautiful sunsets nightly. The beach at Rim Lay is gorgeous, white sand, and very uncrowded. Beach chairs and towels are provided, and you can just relax. The room was cute, clean, and well-maintained. The bed was super comfortable! They do not have a restaurant, but there are many right around with good food. The owner/staff were very friendly and helpful, we can't wait to go back!
Little piece of paradise”
We loved this place! The couple who owned it were so lovely. The friendly husband picked us up from the ferry and was trying so hard to help us with as much advice as possible on the way home. His wife was lovely too - very friendly! She apologised for our room being small but we loved it, it was a gorgeous little cottage (we were in one of the older style rooms). It was so clean, they take such great care and pride in their place, it was humbling to see how hard they work and how beautiful it all was. You walk down to the beach and each unit has its own loungers with umbrella and table. Compared to other places we stayed in, we were amazed at how everything you could possibly need is here. e.g. they have 2 massive umbrellas in the cupboard in case of rain, the personal loungers, loads of personal lines to hang your wet togs etc, hairdryer, loads of things that were very helpful. They have their own scooter for hire which was a lovely gold one too, we felt very flash driving it round! You get the scooter from when you hire it e.g. 10am until 10am the next day which is nice, you could go out the night that you have it to somewhere else for dinner or something rather than having to rush back. The beach is one of the best on lanta and is surrounded by lovely places to eat - spoiled for choice at good prices too. I recommend heading out the front door of Baan Rim Lay and turning right down the road - the 2 best places to eat are closeby in that direction (best prices, lovely owners and trendiest decor also - they have cool sand floors or you can even eat on the beach). Our stay was quiet, peaceful, and idyllic. Book for longer - we had 2 nights and were so sad to leave. They also dropped us back to the ferry no problems.
Very sweet resort with only 5 bungalows. We stayed at the Superior Beachfront Bungalow for 10 nights and loved it. It's small but very clean and has a huge comfortable bed. The owners are discreet and extremely helpful and nice. The location is great. Klong Nin is not only great for swimming but has the coolest beach restaurants as well. Baan Rim Lay is on the more quiet end but super close to all amenities. Highly recommended!
We didn't want to leave!”
We feel so lucky that we got to stay at Baan Rim Lay but it may have ruined us for other places in Ko Lanta. Once we arrived we decided to stay on the island but unfortunately this hotel was booked so we could not extend our stay and had to move. Mr. Pong takes great pride in his small hotel and it shows. You get breakfast delivered to your terrace every morning (at a time you decide the night before), the beds are the best we've had in Thailand (not rock hard, but not too soft either), the AC is wonderful and Mr. Pong can arrange anything you need from tours to transport to scooter rentals. There is no restaurant at the hotel, but there doesn't need to be. There are at least a dozen places to eat anywhere from a 10 second to 3 minute walk down the road. We had a beachfront bungalow which is worth every penny. We had our own lounge chairs overlooking the beach plus our own terrace if we wanted to stay out of the sun. If you're looking for something relaxing and low-key, this is the place. There is a 7-11 down the street as well as a pharmacy and several ATMs. We can't wait to go back...we just wish we didn't have to leave in the first place!
Great place at the beach”
It was a wonderful stay. Baan Rim Lay is a small place with only few houses(most of them directly at the beach) so you can really enjoy peaceful atmospehere of Koh Lanta and live for a few days at their island paradise. The staff is very helpful and keep the place clean and cozy, we've felt almost as like we've been cared about by friends. And care is the good word here, they really care about you and the whole place. The only thing that bothered us was the breakfast - you get the coupons for the restaurant which is next door - and we preferred other places to eat.
We Didn't Want to Leave - AMAZING!”
AMAZING! We can't wait to come back! We could not be happier with our choice to stay here it is located beach front on one of the nicest beaches in Ko Lanta (Klong Nin Beach). We stayed in room B1 which has the bed facing the ocean which was the best way to wake up - all the rooms face the ocean and have an incredible view. The rooms get cleaned every day and are very clean and decorated perfectly. Mr. and Mrs. Pong are the nicest people you will ever meet! Every morning between 8-10am they deliver breakfast of your choice to your front balcony everyday. The breakfast is amazing - coffee or tea, orange juice or pineapple juice, eggs, toast, sausage, or french toast or pancakes. So delicious. They will tell you markets to check out, places to eat, book tours and even confirm reservations for you. Mr.Pong even took my husband around on the moped so he could look at a restaurant menu and make a reservation. Tip: Stay Here!!!!! Food Tip: make a reservation at Yang restaurant (#1 restaurant on Ko Lanta) you will not be disappointed. Also, walk 3 doors down and eat & drink at blue moon - great pizza, glass noodles, and kiwi mojito
We loved this little resort”
if we should go to koh lanta again, we surely would book a room in baan rim lay resort.the owners are very friendly and we felt very comfortable. we even were picked up at the pier without charge. one can rent a scooter right n the resort. if the room is booked with breakfast, it´s served in a restaurant just a few meters down the beach.the breakfast is ok, but nothing special.
Perfect location. Verandah overlooking the beach. A few steps down onto the beach where we had our own loungers. Sunset every night right in front of us. Only niggle was that they were doing a spot of building work - ie getting a new upstairs room ready for the busy season - so the noise for a while on the first 4 days was a pain - wouldve been nice to have known about this beforehand. Also we probably paid too much to stay here - I saw other places along the beach for half the price - albeit not as smart looking. For breakfast you get vouchers for the restaurant next door. I didnt have a bad meal in the whole week after trying 7 different eateries along the beach - mostly eating fish. Klong Nin beach was really nice - quiet at the beginning of the dry season - I dont know if it gets too busy in high season.
perfect beach location , fantastic owner/ host”
Everything was perfect. The room was large and facing the sea. You can walk to bars and restaurants in a few minutes but the area is pretty quiet. The owner , Mr Pong, organized all our day trips and island hopping tours for us, as well as our transport to Railay Beach from Lanta. We hired great -condition scooters from Mr Pong for just 200 Baht per day and explored all over both Koh Lanta islands.. The room was big , with a nice big bathroom , comfortable bed and good air conditioner. We really enjoyed our stay here immensely.
You cannot ask for a better location on Koh Lanta. The beach is the nicest on the island and great for swimming. The room (B1) was beautiful and large. The view was spectacular! There are lots of restaurants within walking distance. We rented a scooter from Mr. Pong to explore the island. It is situated in the middle of the island so it was perfect for exploring. We also arranged a kayaking trip from them and it was the highlight of our trip! Staff are great and will help in any way possible. I would recommend this place to anyone!
Courteous and modest”
baan rim lae hotel consist of five rooms between a narrow road and the beach. we had a small room (appr 10 m2) with a bathroom and a seating area - cleaned well -, and reclining chairs on the beach (appr 5 m from our room). heavy breakers make bathing somewhat dangerous. at many other lanta beaches are sharp stones - there are just a few ones at khlong nin beach, but take care. breakfast was available at clean beach restaurant, appr 20 m from the hotel. the first day there was a modest, but sufficient buffet with corn flakes, different types of egg etc. the next day they changed: they served an american breakfast, a very modest one. we left hungry, but 7 eleven is close by.
SemiLuxury in a family hotel”
Hi there!, This hotel (extra clean, big room with anything u could expect, kettle with coffe and tea, complimentry water, several sets of towels, huge bed, satellite TV, private balcony just by the beach...) at this price (aprox 35 bucks in low s) it´s just very difficult to match. That being said, do not expect nice hotel sourroundings like gardens or swimming pools. Nor a restaurant. It´s just a great room, at a nice spot and run by a friendly family. If ever back to Lanta, I´ll go there 100%
Superb value for money”
This was a superb find. The hotel consisted of ten rooms located right on the beach. Breakfast was served to you individually on your balcony overlooking the sea. There were plenty of restaurants within walking distance the best of which was Yangs( closed on Tuesday's). The food here was more expensive but absolutely superb. Also close at hand are supermarkets and ATMs. The best rooms are the deluxe room and They are finished to a high standard and extremely clean. Mr Pong the owner gives fantastic customer service and does everything to ensure your stay is perfect. He can also organise trips and pick ups to and from Saladin Pier. I would strongly recommend this small but superb hotel for a stay on Lanta.
Super lille hotel/bungalow”
Et fantastisk lille sted, et ungt par driver resoneret og der bliver bare gjort meget for gæsterne, det er alle pengene værd, Klong Nin stranden er fantastisk, ren og lækker, sand bund ude i vandet
