More on Ko Lanta

La Laanta Hideaway is an intimate boutique resort that blends into the landscape at the centre of Ao Maipai.

Travelfish says:

Twenty polished concrete rooms with thatch roofs stand on either side of a footpath, backed by a forested slope. Most are freestanding villas along with a few rooms in duplexes, all with vaulted bamboo ceilings, tasteful art and accents of wood, silk and rattan.

You also get a cushy queen bed, air-con, TV, DVD player, fridge, coffee machine, safe and large hot-water bathroom with stained-glass sink. Interiors are quite consistent so we’d skip the pricey first-row rooms and settle for one a little further back. The larger villas bag you more space and daybeds on the terraces, but sea views are obstructed from all but a single first-row villa.

The resort’s focal point is a two-tiered swimming pool set beside a restaurant and bar. Cushioned loungers, umbrellas, massage salas and a volleyball net are included in a glorious beachfront. You can easily walk from here to Baan Phu Lae’s restaurant for a change of pace.
