Great position for the beach and sea views. Lots of restaurants nearby near the beach as well as their own with reasonably priced authentic Thai cooking.
We had great personal attention from all the staff and nothing was too much trouble.
Not a great choice in food but what they had was cooked to a high standard.
Only down factor was they only had a small pool but sea was great to swim in.
Neat, small (15 only ) bungalow style accom right on the beach, less touristy, 7/11, doctor, pharmacy 1 min away! Great pool, on the same beach as Pimalae resort so awesome location but not big shopping area if that's what you are after!! Ok for families, roomy rooms room 15 best, 1,2,3 Seaview also... Others around pool!! Cheers
Absolutely loved this resort. Wonderful villas staff and setting! Hill to the beach is pretty steep but there's a fantastic pool to cool off in when you get up there. The village has awesome restaurants and there's a lot to do on the island. Can't wait to go back.
I've got to be honest to say that the hotel may not be for everyone, esp people looking for an adrenaline rush, things to do and beautiful beaches. The distance of the hotel from the airport is also a surprise (the private car had to get on 2 ferries, total journey was about 2-3hrs).
If you are looking for a place to unwind, to spend time with your significant other, enjoy the gorgeous hotel facilities, the crazy view from the balcony and the room, then bingo, you've got it! The place is just too luxurious, extremely clean, modern and functional. It was sucha pleasure to just lounge around, reflect on life and let go. Ironically, the lack of much food choices meant there's not too much brainwork each day- in line with the sloth mentality for the holiday.
Activities-wise, there are the usual elephant rides, trekking and kayaking. One perk of going during the lull period-- the skies held up and we were the only ones on the tours!! The kayak ride around the mangrove swamps and caves were surreal, almost like a dream.
It was such a great trip, everything I was looking for.

I booked this hotel thinking that it would be luxurious, as it was almost double the price of the other (very nice) hotels during my trip. Sadly, the facilities are mediocre. I would be pleased to pay about 1/3 of what I paid for a room; but this hotel is way too expensive.
The room was spacious and had a nice bathroom. It all just felt very run down.
The staff was very helpful and friendly. They all seemed to speak English. The breakfast was made to order (but you could order as much as you wanted), which was very nice.
Unfortunately, there are no good restaurants on the strip of beach. The resort restaurant is good, but certainly too expensive. The restaurant next door was terrible--the absolute worst mango sticky rice I have ever had.
I was happy with the free kayaks and the cheap motorbikes. I would go back to Koh Lanta, but I wouldn't stay at Anda Lanta again.
