After deciding to leave Khao Sok early, we had a mini van collect us at 8am and drive us down to Krabi, this took around 3 hours and we had a short wait for our next van to Koh Lanta, the whole journey ended up taking around 7hours so we were pleased to arrive after 2 car ferries!
First impression on Koh Lanta was …
With our last minute decision to head south, we didn't really plan where we wanted to stay. Forgetting that it was almost New Year's Eve we arrived in Koh Lanta without a place to stay. Well, time may have been getting away from us, but everyone else seemed to remember and wanted to be on an island for a party.

If you're looking for something that's not a party on the beach then this is your place. Still only a minute's walk from the coast (and a nice quiet section at that). These resort is located in a wonderful garden area rich with frogs to sing you to sleep!
