Thailand's Basil Fawlty
Reviewed 5 March, 2020
Arrived at the resort after a long trip from Patong Beach. Accommodation was the deluxe rooms with air conditioning. Room was clean and recently refurbished. Food was very nice. The day beds right on the beach were great and our favorite hang out. The majority of staff were pleasant and accommodating. Unfortunately the manager was akin to Basil Fawlty. Quite rude and abrupt. We requested to stay a further night at the same rate and was told no. His overall demeanour and attitude put a bit of a downer on the experience.
Excellent value for money and location

This is at the budget end of Koh Lanta, so don't expect a high end accommodation, but the cottages with air-con that I stayed in were clean, well maintained and in good condition.
The beach does have rocks, but you can swim at high tide, just use a pair of goggles so you can steer around them.
The restaurant and bar facilities are a bit worn, kind of hippy beach bar-style, but I think that is part of the places charm.
However, the service from the owners, the restaurant, bar and massage staff was excellent, and the main reason I gave 5*.
We had a great time, they were always friendly and fun, despite working long hours everyday. Always available and helpful.
Also hired mopeds through them, all hassle free.
My friend and I stayed solo in separate bungalows, but there were also couples and families.
You can work North up the beach to several good restaurants and bars. And some clubs on Long beach about 15 mins on bike or cab/tuk tuk.
There is a 7/11 in walking distance, and quite a few good restaurants on the Main Street.
Cloud 9, Lanta Sure, Patty's Secret Garden and Loro Loco (actually very good pizza) some good nearby recommendations.
All in all, I am very likely to book here again next time I visit Koh Lanta. And can recommend.
Perfect stay on Koh Lanta

We were staying in the hotel next door and moved to Lanta Family when we saw how spacious the grounds were and what good value it was. We had an AC room with a bunk bed for the kids and a double bed for us, and it was less than half the price of exactly the same room in the hotel next door.
The place is right on the beach, and there are nice gazebos to sit in and watch the amazing sunsets. Good restaurant too.
While on Ko Lanta my 4 year old son had an accident and the lady from Lanta Family was so helpful, she reacted fast and drove us back and forth to the clinic when it was a critical situation.
All in all I would highly recommend this place!
