Koh Lanta hotels and resorts

Koh Lanta is another popular island in the area and is preferred by many for its laid back atmosphere, great unspoilt environment and overall better value. In the height of the season it may be a better plan to spend your time here rather than competing with the masses for a decent hotel room in Ao Nang. The island has a good range of hotels and bungalows, with enough space to give most of them privacy. There tends to be a greater concentration towards the north of the West Coast, where the beaches are best. But the resorts to the south enjoy small private beaches.

Below, we recommend some hotels, resorts and guesthouses in Koh Lanta that offer good value for money in their category, or you can view the entire list and make instant reservation enquiries. The prices quoted after each review refer to the minimum charge for a double room during the high season (Nov 05 - Apr 06). If travelling during the off-season, be aware that most of Koh Lanta - perhaps including your resort - will be closed down.

Room rates will vary according to superior and deluxe options, as well as peak season charges. A single + beside the price indicates a deluxe room option, two ++ suggests suites are available and three +++ are reserved for ultimate luxury choices.
