La Laanta Hideaway Resort is located on Bamboo Beach (Ao Mai Pai) and is the very last resort on Ko Lanta, just before the National Park. It offers unrivalled privacy on the quietest and most private beach on the island. The resort boasts two beautiful swimming pools – an infinity pool with jacuzzi and a second pool right near the beach.
Each of the 20 villas are tastefully and individually decorated with paintings by local and Bangkok artists. All the villas are light, airy and spacious with spectacular beach (and sunset) views. Minimalist decor and first class materials blend perfectly with traditional Thai elements such as the wooden bed platform and plush cushions and textiles, to create a clean, comfortable yet castaway feel.
Each villa has its own private front porch and tented shelter, nestled in the shadow of the forest and spaced apart for privacy. The exteriors are designed in harmony with the rain forest using yellow, soft-earth tones for the walls and light-brown thatch for the roof.
Guests can dine in La Laanta’s Cast Away Restaurant, which offers a range of delicious Thai and Western food, fruit shakes, cocktails, beers and wine, or in the more informal surroundings of the beach side Ahoy Bar. Many guests comment that they rarely feel the need to venture away from the resort as the food, drinks and general friendly, chilled-out ambiance make it the perfect place to relax and unwind. During the day, the Cozy Lounge is a great place to surf the net whilst lazing on one of the stylish sofa beds and in the evening, you can enjoy your favourite drinks and listen to music at the bar ’til late.
PLUS – if your aim is to truly get away from it all and live that desert island dream for a week or so, then La Laanta Hideaway Resort is definitely for you. They haven’t put “hideaway” in the name for just any old reason. The beach can often feel like your own private playground and the views at sunset are absolutely stunning. The staff are super-friendly and can’t do enough for you. And as an added bonus in the evenings, often local “kratoy” friends or lady boys like to hang out at the Ahoy Bar, adding a touch of sparkle to the proceedings.
MINUS – if you do want to get around and about the island, unless you are prepared to rent a moped for the duration of your stay, you can feel a little bit isolated and taxi prices can be quite steep. Also, the beach can be somewhat rocky for swimming and a couple of guests have mentioned stubbed toes and the odd bruised knee.
La Laanta Accommodation Overview
This is the resort’s premiere accommodation and comprises five detached beachfront villas offering an unobstructed view of the beach (and sunset) from the private terrace or even from the comfortable king sized bed. All villas are large enough to add an extra bed if required and the room amenities include air-con, satellite TV, DVD player with free movies, WIFI, fridge, coffee machine, sofa, safety deposit box, hot and cold shower with bath tub and a high quality range of toiletries.
Sunset Splendour Villa
Four detached villas placed just behind the Sandcastle Villas offer a partial beach and sea view. Each villa is finished to the same high standard and all other amenities are identical as Sandcastle Villas.
Horizon Gaze Villa
Seven individual villas set slightly back under the canopy of the rain-forest, surrounded by lush tropical gardens for extra privacy. They offer twin or double bed arrangements and whilst slightly smaller than Sand Castle and Sunset Splendour villas, they can still comfortably fit an extra bed as needed. Amenities in Horizon Gaze Villas are almost identical to Sunset Splendour and Sandcastle, the only difference being the bathroom houses a shower without bath tub.
These four beautiful villas are similar and share the same amenities as Horizon Gaze except that they are adjoining and are not able to accommodate an extra bed. Note that there are no connecting doors between the villas. We recommended these villas for a group or family who wish to be close but retain privacy.
