Koh Lanta Island
Thailand, West Coast and Islands
Info : Sri Lanta
Sri Lanta is located in beautiful hillside land on the south-western shores of Koh Lanta. The resort blends with the surrounding environment, and features a small pool, an excellent restaurant and plentiful living spaces. The beach in front is great for sunbathing, games and swimming. Popular with younger travellers and families, there is a definite element of fun at Sri Lanta.
It is a hotel of two halves – with main public areas on the beach side of the quiet coastal road and the majority of rooms inland on the other side of the road. The beach front area is distinctly smarter, well designed and well kempt, whilst the inland area around the rooms has a far more rustic, natural feel and is in parts much less well kept up.
The 48 thatched villas at Sri Lanta are built in an eco-friendly fashion and are set back in the hillside on the inland side with wooden floors, woven coconut branch walls and outdoor polished cement bathrooms. The rooms are split into three categories, and all are air-conditioned. The ‘Cottage’, is the standard room with inland views. ‘Veranda’ rooms have an additional balcony and mountain or garden view. Star Path villas are located at the highest point on the hillside and include veranda, gazebo and outdoor bathtub and sea-view. The rooms are rustic in style and finish. The best rooms are the 2 bedroom family suites on the beach front, which offer families a luxurious idyllic position from which to enjoy the fantastic beach and public areas of the hotel.
Despite the extremely comfortable public areas and decent quality of room, the overall style of Sri Lanta is more lounge than luxury, with the emphasis on relaxation and rest. Ambient music drifts gently from the system in the beach bar, cushions line the floors of the restaurant and living areas while the huge garden is lined with lazy sun-loungers. The staff at Sri Lanta are informal and the service can be slow in a typical island way, but it is very friendly.
The Sri Spa offers the usual range of massages, scrubs and therapies just a stones’ throw from the shore, many of them in an open-air setting.
The transfer from Krabi airport takes 1.5 to 2.5 hours depending on whether you use aa chartered speedboat or the standard ferry. Sri Lanta is well located for diving and snorkelling and great day trips can be organised to nearby islands. Jungle trekking, yoga, catamaran trips are also offered and the hotel has beach games for guests.
Superior - This is what we would describe as our standard category. These will be decent 3/4* hotels providing a really good level of service. We would generally expect them to be providing a little something extra, in terms of character, guest experience or facilities too.
