EDITOR’S INDEPENDENT REVIEW: This small, beautifully-designed beachfront hotel facing Kan Tiang Beach is unique on this island, the only place here with every room designed differently. And it’s done so attractively that we’ve included this in our list of Koh Lanta’s Top 6 Boutique Beach Resorts.

As our photos show, the resort’s three floors in yellow adobe finish blend nicely into coconut palms and lush gardens, barely visible form offshore. Tropical foliage wraps in and out of the balconies imparting an exceptionally natural and relaxing feel. And those balconies are among some of the friendliest ever seen, places that genuinely invite guests to come sit and relax – unlike so many stark hotel veranda’s that are simply not used.

The individual design of the rooms includes structural changes to bathrooms, entries and cupboards, different décor and wildly varied colour schemes, some bright others subdued. If a choice of rooms is available at check in, do go take a look first and choose.

The three floors keeps the structure well below the height of the coconuts, while the rooftop bar offers the opportunity to enjoy the especially attractive surrounds of Kan Tiang beach, bay and backing mountains. This of course, is an evening date, when both sun and temperature are falling.

Phra Nang Lanta has a small pool, again nicely crafted into gardens and lawns. From that it’s just a couple of paces to the sand of one of the most attractive beaches on Lanta. The swimming is great at high tide, though rocks are exposed at low, and guests then need walk a little down the beach to find a good sandy bottom. Perhaps Phra Nang Lanta’s only shortfall is the lack of big beach trees and shade right on the beach. Guests can walk next door for that however, where beautiful trees grow out of the sand and shade guests through the hottest hours.

For couples looking for a peaceful, attractive boutique hotel to spark a little romance, Phra Nang Lanta is among this island’s best opportunities.

ABOUT LANTALanta Island, known as a favorite place of travelers who love peace and want to escape the crowds, is a large island with a native community. Most beautiful beaches are on the west side of the Island.

Kantiang Bay lies towards the southern tip of Lanta Island and provides the last little hub of shops, restaurants, bars and cafes before entering the more sparsely populated on the deep south of the island. As you enter the bay, you are greeted by a kilometre of white sand beach and crystal clear waters, setting against a backdrop of a tropical rainforest reaching up into the hillside. Kantiang Bay is the best place to base yourself if you want to dive in some of the top dive sites in Thailand. With spectacular reefs, unmatched marine diversity and great visibility, Kantiang Bay offers you to get more chance to enjoy the relaxed and laid back atmosphere of island life.
