In keeping with the owner's philosophy of providing a total escape, the Royal Lanta Resort is an oasis of barefoot elegance. Tucked away along a three quarter mile long white sand beach and surrounded by a lush tropical forest, the resort offers guests all the modern comforts, a selection of excellent restaurants, an abundance of water activities, and a spectacular sunset every evening.

At Royal Lanta Resort, the emphasis is on the rest, relaxation and personal comfort of each guest. Keeping in harmony with its natural setting, the menu features local seafood, fresh produce and juicy succulent fruits. Dine by candlelight under the stars on the elegant terrace overlooking the nearby islands.

Our bungalows at the Royal Lanta are built in the traditional Thai architectural style. Our goal is to provide our guest with maximum comfort while experiencing the Thai culture. Each bungalow is built with high ceilings with hand made ceramic tiled roofs. Ceramic tiles not only make each bungalow look apart, it is also the most effective way to keep the heat out of the bungalow. We've even built a life-size traditional Thai house as a museum for our guests to view the culture from a local Thai's perspective. This is a resort experience you can only find in Koh Lanta, Thailand

Our comment: Once Lanta's best high end resort, Royal Lanta still keeps pace admirably with its growing competition. The well manicured garden, glistening Thai roofs and discreet service make this a classic hotel, as opposed to a trendy, fashion-led place. Villas are tightly packed into the space, but the open beach front area along a nice stretch of Klong Dao make up for this. Suites are only worth the extra money if you are travelling with children and need the extra space; otherwise honeymooners should opt for the Royal Executive units, which are beachfront and have a large jacuzzi tub.
