Baltimore, Maryland

We stayed here for 4 nights over New Years as part of a month tour of Thailand. In general we found that this hotel was the best value of all those we stayed in. Would stay here again.

Pros
Very cheap compared to alternatives
Outdoor shower was epic, especially at night looking up at the incredible stars.
Bed v comfortable and really quiet room (28)
Pool area and gym were very good
Staff were overall very kind and helpful

Cons
In the room, there is half an inch gap under the front sliding door and back door out to the shower / toilet. This means various bugs and weird/wonderful creatures can get in! We just blocked it up using a towel but could be easily addressed by the hotel if they fitted a brush/something to block out this gap. Not expensive to do. We had loads of ants on the floor of the room in two occasions that housekeeping managed to sort out.
No bin on the room - again not hard to fix but was pretty annoying.
Outside toilet may not be for everyone with all the bugs out there in the middle of the night!
Location - bit of a walk to the nice restaurants along a busy road with no pavement. You must visit restaurant Yawee!!
Breakfast had ants/flies on it, although was free so can’t complain too much!
Housekeeping took ages to do the room

Chawkacher Tropicana Koh Lanta is stunning!
Perfectly located within a few kilometers of their famous and gorgeous long beach, Pra Ae Beach had to be our favorite.
This resort has everything at a cut rate than you'll find anywhere else, full laundry facilities (250 THB for washed dried and folded clothes!), a gym, a large pool and a small "cold" pool for the very hot days.
Their breakfast buffet is amazing!!
I've never had pineapple pancakes before but I'll be trying to make them at home, they have all the other standard continental options (fruit, cereals, breads, salad etc.) plus the egg bar.
And that's not even the best part, the staff have to be the nicest people in Thailand. Period. They all act with a level of care that makes you think they own the resort.
Specifically Muay, (I hope I'm not butchering her name, as I dont know the correct spelling) she is always happy and smiling when greeting you, and theres always a suggestion for beautiful viewpoints, caves beaches, even a private beach that's a bit tough to find, but once you do the rewards are endless! She directed us to Old Lanta, got us a deal on our ride back to Krabi.
This resort has the whole package,they rent scooters too for cheaper than other places we've been too, didn't even want us to top up the gas when we brought them back!
I cant say enough about this resort, you have to experience it yourself!! If your not going to Koh Lanta while in Thailand, unfortunately you've made a mistake. Should you change your plans, Chawkacher Tropicana is the only place to stay, I would come back without thinking twice!

This a good choice for a family.

The hotel has comfortable rooms within small bungalows. The rooms are clean with modern AC units and the Wi-Fi is reasonable by Thai standards. My favorite feature was the outdoor bathrooms.

There is a decent sized swimming pool and even a laundry room and gym as well as a spacious restaurant area.
The hotel offers massages, but you do pay a premium compared to prices in the town or on the beach. This is the same if you book trips with the hotel. It is cheaper to book identical trio like four islands with the agents in the town.

The location is convenient along the main town road full of restaurants and small stores. A tuk-tuk will take you into the town for a small negotiated amount. Its only short walk to Relax Beach which is a lovely, non-spoilt spot with a small bar and beach massage.

We stayed at Chaw Ka Cher resort after much searching for the perfect spot on the island and we cannot recommend this place enough. The location is walking distance from beach and can very easily be reached via tuk tuk or scooter in minutes but is more secluded for peaceful stay.

The staff are so friendly and especially Moi ( like Muay Thai!) was extremely helpful in both recommendations and treating us like a local :)

The rooms were very clean, spacious as well as the pool area.

Breakfast was by far our best on the stay with very fresh natural food every morning.

Don't think twice, book now!

A quiet and secluded hotel. Rooms are spacious and clean with an open air bathroom. The breakfast is sufficient with continental as well as cooked foods. The Hotel lays on a shuttle bus to the nearest beach (5 mins away), leaving at 10am each morning, but would recommend hiring a car (300 Baht) or moped (150 Baht per day ) to get about as taxi's 300 baht + or tut tuts from 200 baht for a 5 min journey.
There are lots of secluded beaches if you're happy to travel around the island.
The old town is well worth a visit with it's quaint main street, and little bars / restaurants and shops build out over the water.

Stayed here for twelve nights in January . Location isn't the best in our opinion you will need a car / bike to get around the island , there are a few restaurants within walking distance but much more choice in long beach . Rooms are a good size but lack storage ( single wardrobe , one drawer and two coat hangers ) also no tea / coffee making facilities although they did bring us a kettle & cups when asked. If you're a light sleeper be prepared to be woken at 5.40am every morning as the local mosque calls to prayer !! Pool area & gardens were very nice . Great breakfast selection & very friendly staff.

Our stay here was pleasant enough. Some of the hotel staff were friendly and smiling. The two members of staff behind their breakfast stations always looked like they didn't want to be there.
The breakfast was average. If you want to make sure you get a fair share of the 2 type of fruit, yoghurt or scrambled egg I suggest going early. We didn't eat at the restaurant as it shuts at 6pm and most of the time we were out anyway.
The rooms themselves were good, air con and mini fridge so you can put your drinks in etc and we were given 2 bottles of water a day by the hotel staff. However, if you are looking for a quiet stay there is some road noise from passing traffic.
The pool area is nice as long as you manage to get a sun bed. Unfortunately towards the end of our stay groups of people that were travelling together we found were putting towels on sunbeds leaving them and not returning for ages.
The hotel is equipped with a gym and massage service and laundry.
The hotel offers taxi and trip services. We hired a bike as it was cheaper than a taxi to get around.

Excellent Stay!

We booked in for 10 nights and it was an exceptional stay. The ladies at front desk and all the staff are so accommodating and welcoming.

We were given an upgrade to a pool room thanks to our long stay. Thank you!

The resort of 40 rooms is so lush and private. Very quiet end of town but walking distance to many great restaurants and beaches. A gym that is ok, but feels a little cramped. Some equipment needs to be repaired and upgraded. Breakfast was a nice selection of western and Thai. I would have liked to see more variety of fruit and the milk be kept on ice though.

The room was spacious and had nice amenities. The bed and pillows were great and very comfortable by North American standards. The outdoor bathroom we loved and had so much space. Mosquitoes not too much of a problem during February. Water pressure and hot water was excellent.

The only pool is perfect and heated slightly. I would say to add 2 more umbrellas. They had about 4 already. A large sala with padded mats to chill out on. Restaurant open until 6pm daily although we never ate there other than breakfast. Breakfast 730am - 10am daily.

Scooter rentals 250 baht per day was nice and we rented multiple times.

Three negatives were the TV is outdated (not smart tv and no hdmi input). We disconnected and put into the cupboard to have more space and power ports. Power ports in the room are limited and only two prong. Wifi is not that great as it is on one sharing network rather than each room.

I would come back here in a heartbeat! ❤️

Beautiful resort with nice bungalows. Swimming pool was great, self service laundry was very affordable and ideal and the scooter rental is also very affordable and great. The scooter rental comes with helmets for free which should be used, far too many people riding on the bumpy roads with no helmets. Location is a little far from main strips which is good for peace but means that it’s a bit of a walk (10 mins) to shops/restaurants. Beautiful Beach is a 5 minute walk and is beautiful. Breakfast was great, pancakes and French toast cooked fresh in front of you and good selection of yoghurt, fruit, cereal and some hot food. Bed was comfortable, air conditioning worked well although was unusually loud and outdoor bathroom was really aesthetic, although it’s not my personal preference to have the toilet outside. There were no tea/coffee facilities in the room and for some reason, there was no bin in the room. We had to create our own bin out of plastic bags. The doors into the room didn’t seal completely either, not a huge issue.

We LOVED our stay here in Koh Lanta at this boutique hotel for our last 5 nights in Thailand. The property is serene, quiet and beautiful. Waking up to the sounds of happy birds singing, private outside showers, the smell of flowers, crystal blue pool, delicious cocktails and the kindest and most helpful staff we met on our 3 weeks in Thailand! Highly recommend this very hospitable lovely resort close by to great food and beaches.

Air con was free. There is a good class at time for lime, at the south of Klong Dao. There is also one at Klong Nin that is supposed to be good. Just ask at the reception at Chaw Ka Cher. They are helpful.
