D.R. Lanta Bay Resort

This dependable beach front resort will not win style awards but is great value for families.

D.R. Lanta Bay Resort - swimming pool

D.R. Lanta Bay is one of Koh Lanta's most popular family resorts. Located on the golden crescent of Klong Dao and 2km from Saladan village, the resort offers local Thai-style (read: shiny bedcovers, garish tiles and curtains and orange wood furniture) rooms in a flower-filled garden. What the rooms lack in style, they make up for in cleanliness and size - there are many options for families and the presence of a swimming pool is another plus for those with children.

Accommodation is all fairly similar, with the exception of the new VIP rooms (on which more below) and is divided up into bungalows and two buildings. The decor in both is the same, as outlined above, but some of the bungalows are larger than others and accommodate a double and a single bed (Mini suite) and some 2 double beds (Family suite). The L-shaped Mini suites are also connecting, meaning up to six people (or even 8 with extra beds) can share one living space.

The air con building rooms are in the same style, though those on the upper floor have a balcony instead of a terrace. These are also available as inter-connecting rooms. Bathrooms are tiled throughout and offer western toilet and hot water shower (no separate enclosure). In all the rooms you will find dressing table and wardrobe; cable TV, fridge and air conditioning.

The new VIP rooms are located above the reception area next to the beach front and pool. They are very different in style, with black tile floors and an elaborate elephant mural above the bed. The TV is a large flat screen model. Bathrooms offer a separate shower enclosure, but otherwise facilities are the same as in the other rooms. The balcony of these rooms is sea facing and all 4 rooms come in inter-connecting pairs.

Resort facilities include a beach front restaurant and bar, offering room service; the usual ticketing and tour counter; laundry service; Thai massage area; overseas calls; car parking; and bike and car rental. There is 24 hour security on the premises and safety deposit boxes are available at reception.
