Royal Lanta Resort and Spa

Check-in was ok even though the staff did not speak very clear English. Got an upgrade to the family pool side suite. Room was big and had a nice decor. Wooden floors and large bathroom plus balcony towards the pool. The lighting in the room was a bit poor though and there was only one bedstand reading lamp. Asked for another but didn't get one. The air conditioning worked but seemed to always be blowing at full power which kept to noise level high. Beds were comfortable and had all basic amenities including bath robs etc. Room also had a mini kitchen with microwave oven.

Hotel has two pools and a beach restaurant. There was a surprising amount of families with kids at the resort. Lots of Swedish families with kids. That's fine but at moments the kids took over the pool areas and felt like being in a kindergarden playground with kids yelling and playing around. The beach side was a bit more calm. The beach is fantastic and location of hotel good.

Generally, it's a good family hotel. However, its 15 years old and a bit worn out here and there. Staff was mostly friendly but some restaurant and reception staff did not speak good English and seemed a bit tired/unattentative. Mosquitos at sunset can be annoying so bring repellent.

Stayed here for 13 nights in a superior room, located amongst the palm trees in the older part of the resort.
Rooms were large, reasonably clean but the atmosphere in the rooms is dark and dreary. Furniture is old and should have been replaced at least 20 years ago. Sound proofing between rooms is virtually non existent, you can here every noise, even the person next yawning.
The wash basin is located in the lounge/ bedroom, which is very inconvenient and for some reason there is no extractor fan in the bathroom, only a roof vent.
The grounds are well kept, clean and tidy. Breakfast was good. Staff are helpful and polite.
Lots of places to eat and drink along the beach. This hotel is in a good location.
We used the spa twice and would highly recommend it, staff are professional and well trained.
Superior rooms in the original part of the hotel really let this resort down.

Room Tip: Do not choose garden superior rooms

We stayed 4 nights at the Royal Lanta by the end of October 2016. The place is lovely, the layout is ideal if you are looking for a chill out time. Our room was spacious, with a decking area at the front. The bathroom also big and comfortable. The room has lovely furniture, creating a local, enjoyable atmosphere.
Staff extremely friendly and attentive. Cleaners were really fast and efficient.
Two nice swimming pools, surrounded by well cared green areas. The hotel is beach front, there are plenty of restaurants both sides, we did not book breakfast due to the bad reviews. The restaurant was almost empty for breakfast and also for dinner.
We were lucky, as the room next to ours was empty until the last night. Then we realized that the walls were not sound proof at all. We could hear the next door people talking as if they were in our room.
We had a fantastic time at this place, this was our second time in Koh Lanta, it is ideal to spend a relaxing time, and also offers a variety of activities to do. We would recommend the Royal Lanta and for sure, would stay there again. We moved to another resort after 4 days, it was a pity we did not book this place for our 8 days in Koh Lanta.

We arrived excited after seeing the nice pictures on the internet.

Unfortunately, our room was not as expected. We had booked a Superior villa and although the villa/room looked nice, we immediately saw that this room needed some renovation.

There was mold on the ceiling in the bathroom, the fluorescent light in the bathroom was not working, the shower was cold, the shower head needed replacement and there was leakage damage in the room itself.

Due to the aforementioned, we asked the reception if we could get another room. The staff was courteous and were able to allocate us another room. Regrettably, it was a twin room and not a double as mentioned. And although this room looked a little bit better, this one also needs renovation.

Despite the old rooms, the resort itself is nice. It has a pretty view with a beautiful sunset. It's good they offer a 20 min complimentary massage, I wish it lasted longer.
Breakfast is okay, but please, please teach your staff some basic English. Four restaurant staff members didn't know what a boiled/cooked egg was!!
