Lanta Coral Beach Resort

Lanta Coral Beach Resort

Keep it in mind for the quiet life

More on Ko Lanta

With rows of modest bungalows draped in greenery beside Khlong Hin beach on the way down to the far southern beaches, Coral Beach Resort has always struck us as a solid budget choice for seclusion seekers.

Travelfish says:

Rooms come in four flavours, starting with fan-cooled, cold-water bamboo huts topped by thatch roofs. Next come the older tile-floored concrete bungalows available with fan or air-con, and the addition of hot water in the bathrooms. All of the older bungalows are well worn but also cleaned regularly. The newest air-con rooms come in utilitarian concrete duplexes with fridges and TVs.

None of the rooms are too memorable and some could use an upgrade, but we like the shady grounds and the old Lanta style that extends into a cute dining terrace perched above the beach. Staffers live up to the “resort” label by offering massage, motorbike/kayak rental and tour/transport bookings.

Khlong Hin’s namesake rocks make Coral Resort’s beachfront feel private, but head south down this deceptively long beach to find out what privacy really feels like. Those not hiring a vehicle might get bored, as it’s two km from here to the closest clutch of restaurants in Khlong Nin.
