    You will not regret staying here one bitThis place is amazing. The best value hotel i've EVER stayed in my life. The rooms are modern and well designed, pretty much all of them have amazing views - easy to get a bike, and its located next to in my opinion one of the best best beaches in Lanta - Khlong Dao. Could not recommend this hotel any more!

    Nice hotel near the klong dao beachThis place is highly recommended. First of all, the location is so good. 5 minutes walk to Klong Dao beach, Seven Eleven is the 1-minute walk. Staff is so friendly and helpful. You can book transfer, tours here with a much better price. You booked the garden view room. The room is so much better compared to what we paid. Room is big, bed is big and comfortable. We also had an extra small bed, it may be for a kid.

    Great value!This is a great value and by far our favorite area on Ko Lanta. We stayed at two other places and definitely enjoyed here the most. WiFi was strong, staff was extremely helpful and the beach is just a short walk away with a lot of restaurants in the area to choose from. Also got discounted massages for staying here. We got two and the first massage was definitely better than the second (so kind of inconsistent). There isn’t much to the room but was more than we needed!

    Great value for money ”

    This place is great for the price. I stayed in 2 different rooms. 1st (purple door) was a superior upstairs. No view and a smelt a little bit like mould/mildew. Furniture a bit worn but useable and it was clean, as per photos and had everything you needed. Hot shower good pressure, fridge, a.c., Wi-Fi and a smart tv. Bed was ok pillows a little hard. Staff were friendly and helpful. Booked trips etc through them all well priced. 5 mins walk to beach, many places to eat nearby and a 7-11 etc. 2nd room was more modern- basic garden bungalow more powerful a.c. but t.v. was not set up with Wi-Fi as in previous room. A little noisier than prevuous room as you could hear the other guests and I guess I had Bigfoot nextdoor stomping around making the whole room shake all night. Highly recommend this place i would have happily stayed longer. Great massage downstairs too. 15% discount available and the staff are well trained and knowledgeable.

    The hotel is located 5 minutes walking from the beach. The street where it is located has restaurants, 7/11, and scooter rental shops. I had a bungalow that was very nice (and brand new I think): the room and the bathroom were very clean and the bed was very comfortable. The staff is very nice and friendly. The hotel has a massage salon that provides good massages.

Stay and explore the whole island it’s a great place to just chill out and enjoy the scenery/people. You will need the scooter to do so. Right next to 7/11. 10 minute walk to the beach.

    Very friendly staff with good value room”

    Staff was very friendly and was always smiling. Booked a mountain view room and it was good. Very clean but the bathroom has an open window that you cannot close. So a bit of advice is to keep your bathroom door closed at all times or else bugs will get in. There was one cockroach that flew into the bathroom during a storm. Other than that, very close to the beach, clean rooms, and friendly staff.

    This place is at a great location. The rooms were a little run down but they were cleaned every day. I did not get the room I booked but that was not a problem for me. The staff here are extremely nice and helpful. This hotel also sells tour packages which I received at a much cheaper price for staying at the hotel, also, massage service, scooter rental, and 7 eleven is right next door. If you are traveling on a budget this is a good place to stay.

    Nice hotel and serviceminded staff.”

    We booked one of the family bungalows but were upgraded to a room (blue door) because of failure with the toilet in the bungalow. The staff was very nice and did everything to make us happy. The room we got was very nice with a big balcony facing the mountains. The location is very good, close to the street (7/11 about a minute away) and about five minute walk to the beach. On the way to the beach is a small and a very good family owned restaurant (Jameji or something like that). The room was cleaned everyday and fresh towels left in the room.

    Enjoyed staying here, the room is large and good value for money! Location is good and very close to the beach but would still recommend hiring a motorbike to get around as Koh Lanta is large and restaurants/bars very spread out. The only issues we had were a few things broken in the bathroom. Wifi here was also good!

    Amazing place. Vous pouvez y aller les yeux fermés !”

    Advantages : Room super clean. Huge room. Balcony with view on the mountains (arround 10m2). Smart TV Samsung connected to internet with Netflix! This is maybe a detail but after a long day during a long travel this is super nice to be able to watch a good movie or serie. Internet super fast. Aircon super efficient and quiet. 2mn from 7/11 (really convenient) Less than 5 minutes from the beach. Team friendly. They propose also massages, rent scooter and travel agency. Negative points : I really don't find for this hotel. Just shame that during the low season nobody clean the beaches of this beautiful island. . Most of the ones we seen are dirty.
