Solid family midranger

More on Ko Lanta

Twin Bay Resort’s name comes from its location on Laem Koh Kwang, a narrow isthmus set between two beaches: Ao Koh Kwang to the north and Haad Khlong Dao’s to the south.

This is a classic midrange resort in the Lanta archetype—not too big, staffed by locals, rooms that are clean and spacious yet utilitarian in a way that has stood up to decades of sand-covered kids.

Set in a second row of duplexes and freestanding bungalows overlooking Haad Khlong Dao, the concrete rooms come with tile floors, firm beds, air-con, fridges, TVs, safes, kettles, desks, mozzie nets and hot-water showers in clean tiled bathrooms. Beachfront rooms bag you a sea view from bed. A few rooms have an outlook to Ao Koh Kwang, but there’s a lane in between.

While we’d class the rooms as only okay, Twin Bay delivers in other areas that make this total package stand out from similar options on Khlong Dao. We dig the location within a 10-minute walk of Saladan and the busier part of Khlong Dao, but with an isolated feel on a rare stretch of the beach that has not seen much development. A good-size beachfront infinity pool doesn’t hurt either.
