One of the owners/touts approached us as we boarded the ferry to Koh Lanta from Koh Phi Phi Don. The woman was the first to approach us (this will happen to you ALOT), and we walked away with a 1 night stay for 700 baht....3 people in an A/C bungalow with a porch and two beds. Not a bad deal so I figured I had made a huge mistake.
However, we were pleasantly surprised by this place. There was a free pick-up to the hotel when we arrived and about 20-25 minutes later we were on Khlong Khong Beach. The only negative about this place is the location. While on the beach and in the central part of the island's populated west coast, the beach itself is not much to look at and probably not something you're going to want to jump in. Actually, the beach was littered with trash right in front of the hotel restaurant.
The room itself was fairly nice all things considered. Clean. Had a TV, but it didn't work. Decent enough bathroom. OK beds. Nice porch with a couple chairs. Quiet.
Crappy beach problem aside, this was a great home base for our other Koh Lanta activities. Just rent a 200-250 baht motorbike for the day and have fun exploring the rest of the island....highly recommend taking a couple hours to grab lunch on the eastern part of the island and visiting the "hammock house" to buy yourself or someone else an incredibly nice hammock. we also really really enjoyed Ao Kantiang beach.....thought it was the nicest beach on the island and very very few people on it. schweet.
