Staffanstorp, Sweden
Reviewed 7 December 2015

Good service and very friendly staff. Rooms and hotel area is nice and clean. One thing to note though is that the area is built on/around cliffs, which means that there are some stairs/slopes to walk to get to certain areas (eg breakfast restaurant). No problem for healthy people, and they do offer to give you a ride around the...

Crown Lanta R, Public Relations Manager at Crown Lanta Resort & Spa, responded to this review

Joakim - thanks for your review noting our terrain. The hotel property is spread across several steep hills, making for exceptional views but possibly some hearty climbs. The on-property buggies are a great way to experience the fantastic views and lush property without feeling like it's work - just dial 0 and it'll be there to take you 5 feet...

We stayed for 5 nights at the Crown Lanta. The hotel arranged a well organised collection from Krabi airport by minivan and speedboat. The resort is conveniently located for access to the town (Saladan) - a few minutes by taxi 50 Bhat per person or a 35 min walk. The resort has a small private beach, one evening we were...

Kirsty - pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. And you offer some great tips in your review re: mosquito spray and accessing Long Beach as well as Saladan. Thanks! I'm sorry to hear that reception did not offer you a buggy ride back to your rooms upon return to the hotel each day. We will be sure...

Stockholm, Stockholms Län, Sweden
Reviewed 4 December 2015

Stayed for 8 nights. Spacious rooms. We had an excellent room just by the pool area. Would recommend that rather than taking a room that had it's own pool as then you are quite far away from the beach and the main pool. This hotel is quite big and some distance between the reception and the beach (over a steep...

Kristina - thanks for your review and the room tip! You're right, if you want to be right in the action of the hotel, booking a room over the main pool, or in a sunset villa is the way to go. However, if you're more looking for a bit of privacy and a quieter pool I do recommend the Pool...

My girlfriend and I spent one week at this hotel. The location is well suited for people who are looking for some relaxing days on Lanta. The private beach is very rocky and small, but the hotel also has access to a more beautiful public beach. The pool area is outdated and should definitely receive a renovation soon. Sometimes there...

Thanks for your feedback and review. We definitely are able to offer the best of both worlds - the seclusion many seek while on vacation as well as the nearby access to outside restaurants, shopping, and nightlife. Our pool deck area is currently receiving a slow but steady renovation so as not to disrupt anyone's holiday, we hope for it...

Great place for relaxation, great environment and very polite and helpful staff. Great beach around the corner and we liked especially the Reggae bar and it's environment not to mention the great sunset that was visible from the bar. We liked it alot and would recommend it to anyone. The pool access rooms are great.

Great location, private beach, super clean and spacious rooms, good food, friendly staff, quiet and beautiful grounds.

We've spent 5 days in Crown Lanta resort, with our two sons (8 and 13 years old). Although the weather was not 100% OK, we did not get bored for a minute. Great breakfasts in the morning, a swim in the pool at noon, snorkling from the private beach in the afternoon. Mom and dad enjoyed the spa while our...

Based on previous reviews we expected better. Service was certainly in need of improvement in the restaurant. We only ate breakfast as this was enough to put you off for eating lunch or evening meal in the hotel. Poor service from several waiting staff though some were OK . It depended on who was serving you. The preparation of eggs...

This was not the first time visiting Thailand and for sure not the lasr. The staff at Crown Lanta were very friendly and in particular to our two small kids. Crown Lanta can be suitable both for a family visit and as well as a new married couple for a dinner at the private beach.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We invite you to experience the privacy and natural setting of our 4.5 star boutique resort. With our property stretching across 22 hectares of park-like land it boasts gentle hills alongside steep cliffs overlooking the sea, an intimate and private white sand beach, as well as access to the famous 3km long Klong Dao Beach. Throughout our 83 generously-sized rooms and villas you’ll get the feeling of Thai contemporary architecture meets gracious Thai hospitality. Relax beside one of our two resort pools, enjoy the tastes of Thailand at our on-site restaurants, and be pampered at our rejuvenating Infinity Spa. In the evenings, sit beachside at our Reggae Bar and enjoy a cocktail while experiencing one of the best shows on the island – the sunset. The island of Lanta is still regarded as a green paradise where you will find splendid scenery such as rugged tree-covered hills, mangroves, and nine white sandy beaches. In addition, the livelihoods of local fishermen continue to depend on the island and it’s surroundings; as you explore the island you will observe them continuing to work and celebrate their heritage. Our resort is ideally located, giving you the privacy of paradise, while also offering access to all the sights and sounds Koh Lanta has to offer. Crown Lanta has created lasting and vivid memories for guests worldwide, let us have a place in your heart as well. ... more   less
