Tucked away on Koh Lanta's west coast, on the scenic Klongnin Beach, SriLanta is a boutique resort offering charming villas in a tranquil tropical landscape. It has a large beachside pool and a spa.
Score from 269 reviews Very good
The layout was unusual with the bungalows spread over a large area but the transport in buggys was very efficient and I never had to wait more than a few minutes. The top pool was stunning and by far the better one.
I would not recommend it for a solo traveller unless you want real solitude for your break. The water was not the crystal blue I had been hoping for, more of a muddy turquoise. Careful what you wish for.... it was a very luxurious holiday but I found the delightful staff almost overly attentive. I would be asked 5 times or more at breakfast if there was anything I wanted.
loved everything about our stay. Staff and location fantastic.
Staff were excellent and spoke good English. The Spa is gorgeous and the service great. Perhaps a bit pricy.
Pool villa was superb.. The view fantastic
The staff are friendly but their english quit bad
Good service, quiet and relaxing. Recommend to do the pimalai spa. Also better to travel when low season.
The exclusivity and quality service. The beach and bay is one of the most beautiful one in Koh Lanta. The pool villa is spacious and sweet. Breakfast and the restaurant excellent. Spa fantastic. The private pick-up with cruise is a high-light. We enjoyed our stay and would like to go back.
Easily one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. The staff were so friendly and helpful, their customer service skills are outstanding. The food, rooms and activities are all great. The view takes your breath away and you soon find yourself never wanting to leave. The free airport transfer makes it accessible and is also an added bonus to your holiday. WIFI is easy to use and the signal is strong. Cleanliness is really good, they clean the room daily as well as sending in a staff member to pretty up your bed with flowers while you are out to dinner. Loved breakfast and all the restaurants. We visited in low season so other bars/restaurants on Koh Lanta for shut for the season but it didn't matter as we were more than happy to stay put. I haven't mentioned everything on this review there is just too much to compliment. Definitely go and see for yourself.
There were a few little things that I have emailed the hotel about for them to add to their fixes e.g. the wardrobe door kept popping open which would have been fine but it had an automatic light which wasn't welcome at 3am.
Verything i like and i happy there very good i like to be there again i come before in my honeymoon
Everything i like and i happy
The staff were attentive and friendly, the place is comfortable and the food is top quality in all 3 restaurants. The spa is also very relaxing and first class. One of the best holidays we have had.
I loved the surrounding of all the rooms and the spa. Absolutely beautiful with gorgeous clean beach to walk along. Staff were very friendly and rooms large and very comfortable. Wifi excellent.
Nothing really although when full might be too busy for my liking.
Good Food, Nice rooms
Ocean is not for snorkeling, nothing to see around the resort
Excelent location, great hotel.
A tad long transfer from airport
Liked everything about the resort.
The spa treatments were expensive.
Paradise..simply and utterly Paradise . there is no faults, no 'buts' ..except it was aabsolutely horrid to have to leave and to move to a new island and stay in a hotel that wasn't Pimalai.
overall, it was nice. the view in ther pool vila room was fantastic actually.
about the location, it was nice and peaceful however i think they shoul have had their own dock (pier) to anchor their own boat.
Perfect as always, I will keep coming back here time and again. It's such a great place to relax.
The location and view from the resort are breathtaking. If you are into diving - the dive sites off Koh Lanta are amazing - we saw a Whale Shark! I am told there are many Manta Rays as well. The service was impeccable. The staff was very attentive, responsive, and understanding. The resort has equipment for most water sports and also has a partnership with one of the best dive shops on the island - Scubafish. There is nothing I can complain about - everything was just perfect!
We enjoyed the exclusivity of this resort and the breathtaking views. The two pools were gorgeous.
The food in all the restaurants was lack luster considering it s such an exclusive and high end resort. We expected the food to be as spectacular as the resort. The bakery was excellent though.
-The pools! (ice water and fruit was a nice touch) -Pan, the waitron at the bottom pool -Super helpful & friendly staff -Frank: manager, extraordinaire -Quiet, incredible grounds and gardens -Huge rooms with all amenities and tech -Use hotel transfer where possible. Worth the extra cost. -Attention to detail in every area.
Beach restaurant food was pretty bland, and expensive.
- The staff are friendly and very helpful. One night my room had a problem with the air-conditioning. I had informed the hotel about the problem. Immediately the hotel offered a temporary room for the night so their technician could rectify the problem. - Nice ocean view and a peaceful location
- Since the hotel is located almost at the tip of the Koh Lanta Island, mobile phone coverage is not very stable (i.e. signal was not strong).
It was perfect for a beach wedding location, short walk down the beach from some fun bars and perfect for renting scooters everywhere else. Away from the maddening crowds because it's a bit pricier. The spa is phenomenal!
The jungle orchestra (crickets toads monkeys gechos etc.) literally come alive at night, so bring eat plugs with you if that sort of thing keeps you awake.
The Pimalai is magically delightful. The website does not convey how beautiful it is. The spa is amazing. The snorkeling trips were great. They even have paddle boards which was a great surprise for me. I would go back in a heartbeat.
Upper pool near the hill villas and the Seven Seas Restaurant. Magnificent view and very impressive architecture. Spectacular sunsets from the pool or Seven Seas balcony/bar. The more secluded beach compared to other resorts in Koh Lanta.
Reception desk not very friendly at check-in and difficult to understand English spoken by a certain individual (problem was not his fluency but his articulation). Widespread resort including several restaurants makes it difficult to keep attention to detail or a more customized service (e.g. compared to Layana where we also stayed).
Beautiful beach and the location close to Phi Phi and the beautiful Southern coast is nice.
Staff do not speak English and a lot of things didnt work like wi-fi, tv and so on. This is no more than an average resort. I would rather recommend Four Seasons or Ban Yang tree at Koh Samui for a really exceptional experience.
