Nothing quite like it

What we say: 3 stars

When you notice the blow-up zebra next to the swimming pool's neo-classical statues, you know you're in a strange place. This resort bills itself as the end of the road, as it's at Ko Lanta's southeastern-most point. It's also the end of the line for any sense of style. Sleeping arrangements go from Tarzan-style treehouses, to old boats that have been named after international cities and made into rooms, to "cave rooms" that are set way up in the jungle and constructed entirely from stone. The boat room that we checked out was surprisingly stylish, with natural features, air-con, and garden bathroom. We've heard that the cave and tree rooms have issues with cleanliness. Outside things are decidedly zany with table soccer, darts and ping pong in a games room, and a mish-mash of animal statues, hanging driftwood, spirit houses and a billiards table that seems to be used only by the "staff". We were so distracted by all of the knick knacks that we hardly noticed the overpriced Nescafe. There's also a very rustic wooden pier that shoots over the water, and a nearby rocky beach where you can go for a swim. While this place is definitely worth stopping by just for the experience, the location is very isolated. The staff we met however were very friendly.
