Kaw Kwang Beach Resort

Beautiful location within 2km of Saladan; though may be too isolated for some

Note: The following information and images have been provided by Kaw Kwang Beach Resort

Our resort is situated in a peaceful location for relaxing, at the end of a long curved beach apporixmately 1.5km from Saladan pier. There is also one secret small private beach behind the hill. There are 52 rooms, all within one minute's walk of the beach and sea.

We are the only resort on Klong Dao beach with a coral reef in front of it, meaning you can snorkel directly from the beach.

All rooms are furnished with a king-size bed or 2 twin beds and have fan or air-conditioning:
Kawkwang Modern: Beach Front with aircon, Satellite TV, Fridge, DVD player, Hot Shower
Deluxe room: Beach Front with aircon, Satellite TV, Fridge, Hot Shower
Family room: Second row (garden view) with aircon, Satellite TV, Fridge, DVD player, Hot Shower, one double bed and two single beds (separate bedrooms).
Superior room: Second row with aircon, Satellite TV, Fridge, Hot Shower
Standard aircon room: Second and third row with aircon, Satellite TV, Fridge, Hot Shower. Fan rooms, same but without air con.
Hotel View: Second floor with aircon, Satellite TV, Fridge, Hot Shower.

Our comment: Kaw Kwang Beach Resort calls itself "the first resort" in Koh Lanta, which we presume refers to its location at the island's top tip. This is perfect if you are seeking isolation (on an already quiet island); however if you plan to go out in the evenings, count on a 20 minute walk to go beyond the couple of bars and restaurants in the vicinity. It is right next to a rocky hillside, which means there is quite a bit of snorkeling and exploring to be done in the immediate area (though nothing spectacular); worth noting is that this same hill obscures the sunset visible almost everywhere else along this coast. There is a nice swimming pool, which is useful at low tide when the beach becomes unswimmable.
