We had swimming pool access room fab! Spacious apartment all you need if self catering. Onsite cafe, some bars and restaurants near by also 7/11. Little food market just up the road, fresh fish, prawns veg etc cheap. Swimming pool gorgeous, well maintained, close to beach
Great space with direct walk out to beautiful pool!”
Really good location as we had close access to beach as well as road with stores and restaurants. Staff was great and helpful. Pool is large and beautiful and centerpiece of location.
Second year coming here”
This is a publicly run resort with privately owned apartments - therefore every single one was different. Last year we stayed in the normal 3 bedroom apartment and it was cheaper and better than the one we booked this year (Penthouse 2 bedroom with sea view (partially visible over the roofs of the houses in front of the sea haha)). The price seemed to be the same when we were booking this time round. Children playing early in the morning in the pool but the windows are quite good at blocking the noise. Very thin or no curtains which is disturbing in the morning with the light. There was no washing machine and various other helpful bits in the apartment like last year. top tip for groups- make sure that you request the room directly above reception (there is only 1). It has a huge balcony and even a rooftop private sunbathing area with views of the sea.
Thank you for the review and happy you came back for a second visit. Hope to see you back for a third.
Overall it was an good place to stay. The swim up balcony was an absolute must. The last 24 hours however we had literally no water pressure and no hotwater for over 36 hours. Long Beach is a bit of a hike but nothing that made it inconvenient. Finally, there is a fair amount of standing water around the resort so it is a must for them to smoak in order to keep the mesquitos away.
Thanks for the review. Sorry to hear about the lack off water pressure, was a shortage of water in the area as one off our water pumps broke down and sadly took a little time to fix. We do smoke the whole area of Sai Naam and Malee Beach twice a week to keep the mosquitos at a minimum,no standing water in our are this is just a precaution to keep mosquitos at a minimum. Warm welcome back!
Disappointing rude staff”
The apartment with pool access that we rented was lovely. The location is fabulous and the security staff on the gate were very friendly! We were not expecting to have to put down a deposit on arrival - not a huge issue but it would have been nice to know upfront. This might cause an issue for travellers on a budget. The most disappointing part of our stay were the staff (apart from the security guys). All the staff were rude, unhelpful and extremely unfriendly. This was a massive shock in Thailand. We will not stay here again when we visit Koh Lanta, which is a shame.
As good as I think”
Location is quite good, in the end of long beach, many restaurants and bars near by. walk to beach from your room only about 5~7 min. Staff are friendly and helpful. Facilities of the room are good, and room has space for more then 3 people, room on second floor has good view. highly recommend for family or couples for a relax vacation.
Thanks for staying with us and for your review. Warm welcome back!
Great place to stay, swim and eat”
Very spacious apartment by the pool. Beach near and easy to reach, turn left and find cheap cocktails at sunset. I got safe feeling all the time. Hotel restaurant is surprisingly good, enjoy very good pad thai. Apartments are clean and modern, but not new anymore. Doors should be renovated, but problems are minor.
Thanks for your review and we are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. Will take a look at all doors and see if the need to be renovated, thanks for telling us. Hope to see you back at Sai Naam.
Enjoyed our time at Sai Naam”
I stayed with two kids (4 & 5 years old) and they loved the pool. We had an apartment on ground floor with pool access. Staff is friendly and food in restaurant covered the family needs from pasta to kids and Thai food for myself. Location is in end of Long Beach, it’s a short walk to the ocean however you have to walk a bit on the beach/rocks as well before you can swim. It’s super close to 7-11 and many restaurants in the area. It’s whole of Lanta you can easily take a tuk tuk to other areas. I would definitely stay again when staying on Lanta.
Thank you for staying at Sai Naam and we are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. Warm welcome back.
Absolutely. Brilliant holiday apartments we have a townhouse house for two teenagers and two adults with lots of space very clean and full kitchen WiFi is brilliant and love that we have lots of balconies and step out to pool
Thanks for the nice review and warm welcome back to Sai Naam.
Having the pool access directly from the room was a great plus. We had a young baby that had to nap and during that time we could stay close whyle enjoying the pool. The location is great, lots of little local restaurants near by as well as tourist info dor tours and activities. Nearby massages right of the beach!
Thank you for the nice review. Warm welcome back to Sai Naam.
AMAZING! I loved this place!”
I loved this place! It is basically about 20 luxury apartments around a pool. But they are luxurious and the pool is GORGEOUS. Because they are all owned by expats it is luck whether you like the design because they are individually styles and furnished. We got a corner apartment which had 2 bedrooms and it was absolutely amazing!
Great hotel for family vacation”
we stayed at the sai naam from 25 - 27 october and would have loved to extend our stay. from the moment we arrived, we were treated to wonderful personal service. the staffs were gracious, friendly, charming and humorous, making it feel like we were staying with relatives. the house are large and well equipped. if you want to swim, the swimming pool is right at your backyard and the beach is a 5 mins walk.
Spacious and clean apartments”
this apartment is well maintained and extremely spacious and clean. i was impressed by the quality and decor with free wifi. the pool is nice and well maintained like the rest of the property. the air con was in every room in my apartment but each one is different. the staff were helpful and friendly. the location was ok, the beach that is closest isn't one you can use. there is some shops and places to eat close by. will need to hire a scooter to get around the island.
Nice resort with great pool”
We enjoyed our stay with our kids at the Sai Naam Lanta. The kids loved the pool and the direct access to the pool from our terrace. Friendly staff. Great places to eat in the neighborhood. Close walk to beautiful relax bay beach.
Hi Joanna, Thanks for your nice review and we are happy you enjoyed your stay at Sai Naam. Warm welcome back!
Nice Spot on koh lanta. Very nice Manager. Flexible in Mind and takes Good Care of guest needs. ”
Is Booked by Family with a lot of Childrens. They Love the Pool Every day. Not a Quiet Place. Beach in Front Rocky - Not for Swimming. 5 min Walk to long beach for Swimming. Front desk sometimes overloaded- gets unfriendly.
Thanks for the review. We do have lots of families staying with us and can be lots of kids in the pool during some periods of the day especially on the peak season. Same for our frontdesk sorry if the were overloaded but its a special period over the Christmas and New Years period and hard to get staff for those two weeks only. Warm welcome back to Sai Naam.
The rooms are at a very High level. Unfortunately there is No View to the sea - only the pool. The wifi is the worst quality I have experiensed on a hotel in Thailand. It could only sometimes download simple text mails and facebook couldnt be used properly. The were No TV signal - only you could watch CD’s. I was very disapointed that a so High level buildings and rooms and facilitees had so bad wifi and No TV signal. It is missing a Good management. The reception was incredible helpfull and friendly all the time. Thank you.
Thanks for the review. From the apartments on the second floor its a nice view of our big pool area and from the apartments on the third floor you have excellent seaview. Sorry about the week internet, been in contact with the owner of the apartment you stayed in and we will now install a router there with a fast fibre connection. Hope to see you back at Sai Naam.
Good value small hotel in Koh Lanta”
Pros: Spacious room with bedroom, bathroom, kitchenette, living area and patio with direct access to a lovely pool. Pretty good food in the hotel restaurant. Aong (member of staff) was incredibly helpful and tried to resolve all of our issues. •Cons: Requested early check in and was told it would be possible but wasn't checked in until 3.30pm as the the room wasn't ready. No toiletries, slippers or bathrobes provided and toilet rolls not restocked. Poor wifi but resolved on 3rd day as they contacted the provider to fix. Rented DVDs but DVD player did not work which was disappointing. Overall: Recommend but could be 5 stars if more attention was paid to the small details.
Hi Vanessa, Thanks you for the review and staying with us at Sai Naam Lanta. So sorry we couldn't get you early check in, was a really busy day and housekeeping worked as fast as they could. We been installing wifi thru fiber in almost every room but been some problem with TOT the provider which was solved after a couple of days. Once again thanks for the feedback we appreciate it. Warm welcome back!
Bad experianc in low season”
The reception was only open from 8AM to 3PM officially. The restaurant was clossed and the guest room was used as a messy storage room. We payed 2000 Bht as deposit for the room keys, When checking out we had a hard time to get back our deposit because the reception was closed even between 8 AM and 3PM. Except for the pool the place s at least in low seasons far from 4 starts. Worst experriance when booking 4 stars in Thailand for a long period.
Sai Naam again”
I had a lovely stay , staff were very helpful and kind, food was good and location was great. There were a few issues that I didn't like, my heavy bolt lock was broken and all the rooms had issues with ants but apart from that it was an amazing place.
Very nice stay there”
We booked a family room. It was very clean and nice view to the gardern in front beach. We liked the direct access to pool from our room. It tooks us ~2 hrs drive from airport,and the hotel pick-up charge from the airport is a bit expensive than booking private taxi online.
