Homely beachside hideaway

More on Ko Lanta

Friendly Ko Lanta native Mr Pong owns a half-dozen spacious and well-equipped rooms at Baan Rim Lay opening direct to Khlong Nin beach via semi-private terraces, where he delivers breakfast to guests in the mornings.

Though the place doesn’t look like much from the road, the concrete-and-tile bungalows bag you a comfy bed, desk, fridge, TV, coffee/tea facilities, sitting areas inside and out, and wide windows for enjoying sea views from under the sheets. Large hot-water bathrooms are divided into three segments. Foldout sofas help to make these digs a top pick for families.

The small, easy-to-miss property sits near the northern end of Haad Khlong Nin, a good location within a short walk to the street food in Baan Khlong Tob along with several good beach bars.

Nearby La Paloma Lanta is a similarly well-equipped bed and breakfast type of place with rooms that fetch a bit more cash. It has a thick concrete wall along the beach, and we prefer how Baan Rim Lay’s rooms open directly to the sand.
