We, a family of 4, kids aged 5 and 8, will travel to Ko Lanta and stay for about a week in january as part of our 2 month in SE Asia and rtw trip.
Can any of you recommend a family friendly guesthouse on an nice kiddie friendly beach?
We can max pay $40 a night. I have tried to contact Lanta Bee Garden several times but no reply. Is this place closed?
Thanks in advance
Hi Pia, my wife and I really enjoyed our stayed on Lanta for a week 18 odd months ago. We stayed at the Sayang Beach resort which I think from memory I did a review of.This was about 1800 baht- 2000 baht so not sure if that fits into your budget.
Sayang is on Long Beach which is the second beach down the west coast.I prefered this as it was a bit quieter than the main one a bit north.
The beach itself is very safe with a gentle slope. There were plenty of kids ranging from all ages and most parents seemed very relaxed about it all.
If you prefer something a bit more livlier at night very easy to catch a ride to the first beach.
One thing we noticed and really enjoyed is that the island is predominately Thai Muslim.While this meant a little less seafood then say Koh Chang etc,there was some fantastic curries and coffes etc.
All in all Inice balance for parents with kids.
