Good Days Lanta Beach Resort
Travel Blogs from Ko Lanta
David managed to run up the hill this morning, so I thought I better walk down to breakfast and back without our jeep. Wasn't too bad. Breakfast was lovely, couple of photos of the views from breakfast. Back to get ready for a day at the beach (sound familiar?).

Right on the beach. Beach is nice although you have to cross a stream to get to it - bit a problem it makes it fun. Staff friendly. Nice pool overlooking beach. Shops and restaurants nearby. Air con bungalow a little tired and doors not that secure but have safe box.
