Okay basic accommodation with pool”
Don't expect any assistance from staff and you won't be dissapointed. Stinky toilet. Intermititent wifi. Same included breakast every day. Located on the beach, near to Town (100 b taxi ride.), near restaurants, nice pool.
All good "except" breakfast”
All good "except" breakfast, which is the same everyday for the-whole-7-days we stayed there. Food is not covered while lots flies flying around. We only had 3x breakfast in hotel, and for the rest of our stay, we just went somewhere else like Patty Secrets Garden or Cozy Breakfast which have much more descent and yummy breakfast. If you want to keep hotel breakfast, then eggs (omelette/scramble/fried) is probably the only descent option......
There was nothing to make this resort stand out. Rooms were okay, clean but boring and dated. Restaurant was overpriced. The whole property just feels dated. Plus, no motorbike rental or laundry services. At least it’s right on the beach.
Wonderful place - all you need!”
Iv'e stayed at Golden Bay Cottage af few times and i love this place. The staff is nice and very helpful, the resort area has something few other places have, it's cozy, beautiful and not to crowded. There is a natural comfortable distance between pool, garden for sunbathing, restaurant, beach ect.. Wonderful. The restaurant has gotten better and better, their food is really good and the location right on the beach really tops it of! The rooms are nice and you get value for money. Big thumbs up to Kong, a young man who seems to run the place on a daily base. This guy has service in his blood!! Helpful, comfortable, sweet and a 6th sense for being around every time you need help and knowing when to retreat and let the costumers relax... We loved this guy! For any negatives... the wifi is not extremely fast, this was primarily an issue for the kids :) The beds are not soft, but after a night or two of getting used to it, it actually did wonders for my back.
This was a return visit to Golden Bay. Obviously we like it! The location is perfect. The resort is well kept, and the rooms are very comfortable. There are a good number of loungers, but it can be challenging to find shade. The shade awnings around the pool look like a good idea, but they aren’t very effective. Still, this is an excellent resort. I hope we can stay again.
The staff at Golden Bay take Thai hospitality and friendliness to a whole new level! Everyone I interacted with from the owner down to every service staff were so kind and helpful, it made up for a bad experience I'd had coming in too late at the Krabi airport. This hotel was beautiful. The ONLY problem was that I could only find one outlet in my room. :) Bring a power cord and you'll be all set!
Beautiful setting, on the beach, great cocktails, everything you need in walking distance, staff were really lovely and attentive, great value for money! Sun lounger pads are a bit tired and not too nice to lie on, but besides those I could not fault the hotel at all :)
Someone likes staying hotel whole day would recomend this.
Beautiful place with fantastic ground and right on the clean beach. ”
The pool was great but it was difficult to decide whether to swim in the or the sea which was only steps away. Plenty of sunbeds around the pool and grounds. Great breakfast with enough choice to please most tastes. Only downside was that the beds were a little hard and there was no bar area to socialise, only a restaurant. Although there are plenty of bars on the beach.
Neat and tidy”
Koh Lanta is an island where you don't expect as vibrant as Phuket or Ao Nang. It is only resort and the beach. If you want some more restaurants and pubs, you have to go further down south. Golden Cottage is great small resort comparing with big big resorts nearby. Resort to the beach just one pace away. Breakfast far too simple convinced by attractive price. There is one restaurant called Triple Lanta ??? about 300m from Golden Cottage. You'll find the best Thai food ever. The owner was Mr. Prajuab. I booked the elephant ride and trekking, and ferry to Phi Phi Island there.
We liked it so much we kept extending our stay and wished we could have stayed longer! Great swimming beach (but quiet at night, definitely not the place for someone looking for a party beach). The pools too chlorine-y but the beach is so nice it's fine. Highly recommended!
Golden bay hotel is very very close to the beach. I booked an ocean view family room which is just located beside the beach. It's really awesome experience to watch the sunset in front of the house. I really didn't want to leave
Value for money”
I went on vacation with a colleague, and booked Golden Bay a month in advance. The 2 days there are definitely good value for money. The hotel located just by beach, and 5 min to main road by feet, so very quiet at night. Rooms only 1 min away from beach, swimming pool is quite big comparing to those in Aonang, the staff is also helpful. Will come back next year.
Well managed and on the beach!”
I found the staff very good..excellent.. during my stay, all of them contributing to a very successful NY eve party as well! Everything was well managed at the hotel and it was a pleasure to stay here.
I like this Hotel”
My room was just beside the seaside (I like it very much!) can see the low tide & high tide of the sea... my kids can run wild at the seaside because its not dangerous at all as the sea level at the seaside is not deep. Walk along the seaside to choose restaurants which you like, dinner and taking the nice wind... I thing i dont like which is infront of my room there are few rows of resting chairs where those people like to hanging out and take sunbathing the whole day long, once we opened our room's curtains people definitely will see through our room... Really dont like this point. please take note that this hotel check out time is 1130AM! staff will standby at your doorstep if you still not check out at that time (Dont like this point too), if i check out late you can charge me but please dont push me.
Great Location and Food”
The hotel located right beside the beach. The beach stretched more than 1KM and hotel is located in the middle with the finest sand. Restaurants and massage parlours are located along the beach. 7-11 is just 200m away and Ban Sala Dan is a 15-20 minutes walk. Room is clean comfortable. Breakfast is simple and acceptable. Dinner on the beach is a very great experience and the food is delicious with reasonable price. I definitely will stay in this hotel again.
Good value for money”
The view is great, Right at The beach. The rooms are very clean. Breakfast is good with a lot of options. First i had the basic room which was ok but needed Some renovation and the water pressure was terrible. Later upgraded to superior and that was much better. I think the staff especiall The girls at The reception could be more friendlier. One day one member of The staff was going around with my pasport copy showing it to guests who were at The swimmingpool like me he was joking and making fun of my picture or something. I told him that i didnt appreciate that and he kept doing it very strange and unprofessional to do that to a guest for no reason. Apart from this incident it was a good hotel. But The service can make it or break it.
Best of the Best”
Golden Bay Cottages was the best resort I stayed at during my entire trip to South East Asia. Value for money was off the charts. Rooms were clean and modern and had all the amenities you needed. Included breakfast. Pool was perfect and was right on the beach. I could not say enough about how relaxing and lovely this place was.
Booked for 2 nights, stayed for 8”
This Was a great place to stay for us. It was near the ferry port on the North side of the island so that was a cheap taxi ride to the cottages. This location is a bit far north on Klong Dao beach but there are plenty of great places to eat nearby and you can rent a scooter from Golden Bay for 200 baht per day (24hrs). The staff was friendly and the breakfast was good. Right on the beach for some nice sunsets. I would maybe travel elsewhere for lunch and dinner as there are awesome road side food places for cheaper. We didn't mind the drive down to the other beaches and to old town, they were fun adventures and I would say the scooter rental is a must as it gives you total freedom.
Staff and location were fantastic. ”
This hotel was quiet, secluded, and enjoyable. Proximity to the beach was perfect. Bars and restaurants right on the beach or take a short 5 minute walk to nearby shops and restaurants. Perfect place if you want a quiet friendly environment.
