One chilled-out “resort”
Last Beach Resort was initially located on Ao Maipai and the owners kept the original name after moving to Khlong Jak—we guess "Second to Last Beach Resort" doesn’t have the same ring to it.
Lodgings come in two forms. Our choice would be one of two large wooden bungalows with high metal roofs, tinted windows, portable fans and soft beds with mozzie nets. Seashell collections join cold water in the stonewall bathrooms, and hoses are placed out front for splashing off the sand.
If these are full, settle into a smaller room in a wooden duplex with several windows, including some sporting blue-and-green stained glass, and attached bathroom. The value for both room types is excellent, and guests are encouraged to settle in for as long as they want, paying by the day.
A very laid-back crew of Thai guys runs the place and they put on barbecues and occasional parties in high season. By day you’ll find them and guests swinging in hammocks strung up in the bar and restaurant, which opens to the best beach on Lanta, in our opinion.
