Lanta Bee Garden

Lanta Bee Garden

Straightforward but comfy

More on Ko Lanta

Lanta Bee Garden’s spacious, clean and functional budget rooms offer direct access to an upmarket beach. Here you can save some money while holding on to extras like air-con, hot water, fridge, TV and WiFi.

Travelfish says:

All but a lone beachfront room comes in either a two-floor building or a motel-style single-floor structure, all made of concrete and painted orange on either side of a sandy lane that cuts through from the main drag to the beach. Some of those set closest to the beach feature shocking red-and-pink paintjobs within, but colour schemes are downright dull in most rooms. Available with fan or air-con, each room sports chairs on a porch where you can chat with the neighbour.

It’s not a big place, drawing mostly couples and solo travellers of all ages who congregate at the restaurant or chill in one of the beachfront salas. Staff are efficient, though with more of a business-like attitude than at some places. While they jack rates for peak season, it’s good value for shoulder months and we’ve found rates negotiable if walking in to inquire.

Khlong Dao’s runner up in this price range would be the nearby Time For Lime Bungalows, which are set behind the eponymous cooking school, and the less reliable but more artistic rooms at Chaba Bungalows near the centre of the beach. If you don’t care about beach access, no shortage of budget guesthouses are found along the main drag throughout Khlong Dao.
