With a 4 year old and baby the family room with double bed and two singles was a great space.

Beutiful hotel & lovely staff”
We booked the Lanta residence for our first night on Koh Lanta and ended up staying for 6nights as it was so nice. The rooms are clean and spacious with balconies and ensuite bathrooms nad the hotel is beautiful. There is a rooftop pool which is perfect for a lazy day in the sun or a sunset swim at the end of a long day in the heat. Breakfast was included which was a bonus for us! All the food we had here was lovely and the staff could not have been friendlier. The hotel is on a quieter street but within walking distance of the pier for restaurants, shops and boat trips. The nicer beach is a bit of a walk but only a few mins on a scooter. You can hire a scooter at reception which will gives you the freedom to see explore the island (recommended!)- you can get round it all in a day. I would say that the location of this hotel is not ideal if you do not have your own transport to get around the rest of the island but for us it was perfect! Thanks to the staff and owners at the Lanta Residence for an enjoyable stay!
Booked 2 nights stayed for 5!!!”
We had a really nice stay at Lanta Residence which made it hard to leave! Good location, which doesn't matter so much in Lanta since a motorbike is cheap to rent and the best way to get around here. We rented motorbikes for a couple days from the hotel, it was a good price and had no problems or worries renting from them. It's laid back and I think is family run, always someone available at the front desk. Breakfast was really good. The rooftop pool was amazing and was always deserted so we had the place to ourselves most of the time! Rooms were spacious and cleaned daily with new towels and water. Bathrooms were awesome for Thailand (Separate shower which was my favourite part I think!). The only thing was we booked tours through them and after we found out we way over paid (by 1000 baht for one tour) so felt ripped off, so I wouldn't recommend booking tours or tickets through the hotel, but that was our fault for not looking around for a better price. All in all would recommend Lanta Residence to anyone!
we came back. that says it all”
my wife and i travelled in thailand and malaysia for 3 months. of all the places we liked the best, koh lanta ranks number one. this in part was due to the lanta residence. staff were great. we would walk to long beach every day,and the staff would pick us up every day. lotsa restaurants in the area. good and cheap. breakfast was always good. ac, internet, tv, and cheap beer in the lobby. we returned to the lanta residence to finish off our tour. enough said. great pool on the roof. thanks to kai and ugn, it was great.
Exceptional value in Koh Lanta ”
The Lanta Residence Boutique is by far one of the best accommodations on Koh Lanta in terms of money value. It is located 5-10min walk from the pier, which already saves you money because you do not need a taxi. The rooms are nice, clean, and quiet. Air conditioned, with balcony and nice bathrooms. It has a nice rooftop pool for cooling off in the morning or during the day. Additionally, there is a gym available including a treadmill for anyone wishing to maintain their fitness while away from home. They also rent scooters at a low rate. And didn't require any deposits or information from us as we are already guests at the property. The hotel itself was very quiet and seemed secluded even though it is in the middle of town. They were conducting minor renovations at the time of our stay, but the work was very quiet, in which case I can only imagine the hotel will be even better in the future. The staff was very friendly and I would definitely stay here again.
We loved our stay at Lanta Residence. We booked one of the larger rooms which had lots of space and storage. The breakfast is excellent, and the staff are very nice and helpful. We rented a scooter from the hotel and had no problems whatsoever. I highly recommend getting a scooter and touring around Lanta. The pool is on the roof and is a good place to relax in the evening taking a swim. I would definitely stay in Lanta Residence Boutique everytime I visit this island.
great hotel with everything you need”
lanta residence was all we needed in koh lanta. we booked for one night and ended up staying for 6! staff were very friendly, the buffet breakfast was great and the rooftop pool and all the extras meant that on some days we never had to leave. maybe 1/2 km to the nearest beach but close to saladan town were everyone seems to congregate at night. the hotel was very good at organising cheap travel and motorbikes.
Friendly and helpful staff, good access to city”
Lanta Residence was a nice place to stay. The pool was nice, and the included breakfast buffet was pretty good, with pancakes, cooked-to-order eggs, and pastries. The location is good, pretty close to town and several restaurants and bars. Nothing is outside your doorstep, though; it's about 10 minutes walking to anywhere. Beach is far - about 20 minutes walking. The staff here was phenominal. Our ferry to Koh Phi Phi was cancelled, and they helped us get rebooked, got us a room for an extra night, and also helped contact our hotel in Phi Phi. We would recommend staying there.
Helpful staff, great breakfast & clean room”
The staff was excellent as my wife was ill and they were very quick when I asked if a doctor could come to the hotel to see her they told me they would drive us to the clinic ASAP. They did this as part of their attentive service as the doctors office was about 4 kilometres away. They also have a very good breakfast and cook eggs to order for you daily, real bacon, lots of fruit, juices and fresh breads. We walked about 700 metres to the beach that faces where the boat channel was and laced on it one day as well as walking another 300 to 400 metres further to Klong Dao beach. If the walk is too far it is only a 50 baht Tuk Tuk ride back as all the Tuk tuks and vehicles have to use this road to leave the beach to get back onto the main north south highway on the island. Terrific location for dining as it is about 200 metres to the downtown area of shops and restaurants as we dined most evenings on the restaurants along the water.mthe pool on the 4 th floor had a shallow side for children and the building offers a view as it is the tallest building probably on the island. Great value for the money. We were,also upgrades to a deluxe room at check in and had a balcony and much larger space.
Great place to stay”
We stayed in this hotel for a week. More or less very good experience. Breakfast was great, location as well, knowing Koh Lanta is an island easy to explore on motorbike. The hotel had that family spirit around... Maybe because receptionist/manager was always with her toddler, a husband was working there and a cute kitty was always running in a lobby. We were very satisfied with our choice at the end of the day and the price was considerably cheap. However there was one misunderstanding on the first day of our arrival. We booked a deluxe room and then we were told that actually it was a normal room (supposedly), however we got upgraded to family room. That wasn't really an upgrade because it was a room for 6 people, and it was worse than deluxe rooms. So knowing we had to stay there for a week, we spent our time to ask for what we booked. That included receptionist acting weird like she had no idea what we were asking for. At the end we had to call to Agoda's Thai representative and demand what we payed for. Fortunately everything was sorted out by receptionist/manager, since for the 2nd night and till the end of our visit she gave us the room we booked. To sum up apparently there wasn't a deluxe room available when we checked in, and a woman from Agoda (Thai) offered to return the money and wished a good luck in search for another hotel on the same evening.... So thanks to manager, she did the best to find the best solution in that situation.
Good, clean hotel with nice rooftop pool”
Lanta Residence is centrally located and the owners are friendly. They did overbook for the first night of our stay, however, and we had to move to another hotel for the first night. Apparently overbooking can be a problem for bookings through Agoda. They did all the organization for the replacement (and gave the option to receive money back with additional compensation, which we did not take), so it was ok. Not the chepest in Lanta, but fairly nice. If you're ready to pay the price then its fine, nothing to complain about this place.
Booked 2 nights, stayed for 7!”
I truly loved my time at this hotel. The breakfast buffet every morning was amazing, everyday they had a little something different. The rooftop pool was gorgeous and clean. The hotel is not close to a beach, but close to the main market centre where everyone comes on the evening. Koh Lanta is a great island for renting a motorbike and exploring so one ia beach is always within reach! The staff are really friendly and helpful and the rooms are large and clean. Book your tours elsewhere, but renting a motorbike through them is fine. Highly recommend this hotel. I will be staying here in the future!!
Pleasant hotel, great location for scuba diving”
This hotel is right in Saladan town which is the main (only really) town on Koh Lanta. You can rent a motorbike and get anywhere in lanta within a half an hour and it is really nice to drive around. My purpose for coming to Koh Lanta was for scuba diving and this hotels location was perfect. I could walk or take the motorbike 2 mins and I was at the dive shops. This is definite selling point when you need to be there at 7-7:30am. If you were to stay at Khlong nin or down longbeach you are looking at a vey early wakeup time. The owner of this hotel is exceptionally nice and very helpful. Normally I never would trust locals to organize travel or activities but she is genuine and will definitely help you out for a fair price. My only complaints were that the people next to me were noisy and the walls are thai-style (not insulated) so it was a little noisy. However I am the worst sleeper in the world so others may not have noticed. On the positive side, the bed is not thai style and is very soft. Something that is hard to find for under 100usd on Lanta (or anywhere in Thailand). I did wake up with a lot of bug bites and I don't know what they were from. I won't speculate since its a tropical island and I have no idea really.
Lanta Residence Boutique”
We loved our stay, If we ever go back to Koh Lanta would definitely stay at this hotel again. Very nice staff and very clean hotel. Nice breakfast. Big plus for hotel own transportation to nearby beaches.
Nice hotel, but far to the beach”
the lanta residence boutique is a nice hotel. the employees were helpful, the breakfast was good and the rooms were clean. we saw a lizard in our room (on the ceiling), but those are harmless and rather cute so no worries! only negative about this place was that it was rather far to the beach.
We loved this place”
We loved staying at this hotel, so much so we extended for a further 3 nights. It's family run and the staff couldn't do enough for you. It was located close to the market and close to many good restaurants. The roof top pool was amazing, comfy loungers, clean and so quiet. There was so much variety at breakfast and they would freshly cook pancakes/ omelettes and eggs for you. The hotel organised shuttle runs to the port and moped hire at very competitive prices. I would definitely stay there again if I returned to Lanta.
Perfect room. Staff organised us a moped with no deposit and didn't have to leave passport. Lovely restaurants just another 100 yards toward the beach. Walking distance to the Pier with luggage, so a great place for 1st / last night on Lanta. We ended up staying for our whole stay though as if you hire a moped, it doesn't really matter where you stay. Lovely pool with towels provided. There was some building work going on next door but only through the day so don't let it put you off.
Near shops and restaurants”
Lanta Residence is a nice place, and located near the shops and restaurants, so it is very convenient for dining and shopping. But it is a long way to the beaches that Koh Lanta is famous for - you will need to pay the tuk tuk mafia or drive a scooter every day to get to Long Beach or other really gorgeous ones down south. That said, they have a nice pool and it's a pleasant place in Saladan.
great hotel great staff”
We originally were going to spend 3 days in Koh Lanta, ended up staying a week. The pools really nice we were there everyday, the beach is pretty nice too, I liked it better than Koh Phi Phi
breakfast, staff and the burger next door.”
Our stay was really good! Had a burger to the right on the main street reaaaally tasty! And cheap! 50baht. The only negative thing is that you dont have a nice beach close to the hotel. We walked 2.1km for the nice beach klong dao. Saladan beach thats 500m away aint that nice... But we had an awsome stay and they drove us to klong dao beach!
best hotel in our trip to Thailand”
it's the best hotel in totally 5 we have stayed in our this trip. and we like Lanta very much, not so many people,good consumption price,nice and helpful people, really good seaside and really good motor-riding around the island. nice weekend market, and we will go there again!!! Hope you will have a really nice stay there. This hotel would be a really good choice!
