Kantiang Bay was the perfect location for us on Koh Lanta. We love the beach there and there are number of great cafe and restaurant options as well as a convenient store nearby. The room was spacious, had aircon, and was clean. It also overlooked the bay. The Why Not bar located downstairs has live music every night from around...

I stayed in one of the bamboo cabins in early October. It's cheap (300 Baht a night) but man, do not do this. The room was dirty and grimy, there was mold growing on the wall. The whole place smelled like urine (and from the way it sounded the toilets and sinks empty directly under the hut, so no surprise...

We (foolishly) booked one of the bungalows through a woman on koh phi phi who assured us they were wonderful. Terrible shock when we got there. The rain wasn't their fault, but we had to wade through water to get to our bungalow, which was dark, dingy, smelly and falling apart - it literally shook with every step you took!!...

The staff here are very relaxed. Don't expect them to run around after you like in the big hotels - but this is not a complaint. This is a family run business that goes at the pace of the island. We really enjoyed staying here. We had a week to settle in and take it easy. The food in he...

After staying at the nearby Baan Lanta Spa resort I decided to view the rooms at KBVR. The very friendly family who own the establishment were kind helpful and with a/c bungalow rooms at half the price a bargain. Rooms were clean staff very happy and helpful and the beach was 20 meters from my front door
