Travel Blogs from Ko Lanta
There's just one word for koh lanta and that WOW!!!! We took the ferry from krabi to koh lanta what took 2 hours, then got a tuk tuk what's not like the tuk tuk up north these ones are a moped lol to our hotel where we are staying for 4 days just to relax as everyday we've moved about, the hotel is amazing and it's on the beach, the sun goes down …
Well here we are the last full day of relaxing so it's definitely a pool day, trying to top up our tans!!
Went for a Thai massage on the beach at sunset which was painful yet relaxing, they get you in some really odd positions and really dig there elbows in but it was an experience we had to have before we left this fabulous country.... …
We headed out on the moped to do a lap of the Island and soon realised how small this island is, it didn't take us long to reach the ferry port and biggest town on the island, a typical Thai town but without the hassle of people harassing you..also went to Ko Lanta town a lovely neat and tidy small seaside town with a great outlook across the sea, …
Another beautiful day so it's a pool day but first we jumped on a couple of push bikes and headed out around the area but the heat was getting to us so didn't get that far but we did end up at Auntie Moe's and they do the most amazing ice cream shakes...Mmmmm..
Love this massive infinity pool, think we really did save the best hotel til …
Time to say bye bye to the beautiful island of Phi Phi, we had a tractor transfer down the beach to a long tail boat that took us to a small ferry just off shore which then transferred us to a larger ferry waiting in the Phi Phi harbour which took us to Ko Lanta, then car transfer to the gorgeous Rawi Warin Resort took about 4 hrs in total so still …

Historical Traveler Reviews Rawi Warin Resort & Spa Ko Lanta
My family and I (2adults and 1 child) stayed at Rawi Warin over the newyear period for one week, when we arrived it looked truly amazing and we were totally blown away by the seaview pool villa, if you can afford it go for it as it is really worth it. Everything was spotless.
I got a fabulous deal and decided to "splurge" by Thai standards, and stay at the Rawi Warin. Let me start and say that I have truly never written a review, although we have traveled throughout Asia and North America quite thouroughly. I like things clean and prefer a nice beach, other than that I'm a "it'll be fine" sort of a traveler. Rawi Warin was probably one of the most beautiful resorts our family has ever stayed in. The grounds were gorgeous, the food ( especially the pasta) was outstanding, and the infinity pool with the view over the ocean was awesome.
Verschwenden Sie hier nicht Ihre Zeit
Grauenhaft überteuerte Zimmer und Essen. Winzige Villen. Nur ein einziges Restaurant war geöffnet, das Essen ging so eben noch in Ordnung aber es war sauteuer, vor allem für Thailand. Das Personal war sehr zuvorkommend aber nicht ausreichend ausgebildet. Die Anlagen waren noch nicht fertig gestellt. Für Kinder gab es gar nichts zu unternehmen. Der Strand war schäbig und steinig. Unser Pool ist 10mal besser als der Pool hier. Das Spa ist noch nicht fertig. Dazu kam noch die langweiligste Fahrt vom Flughafen Krabi (eine Strecke - 2 Stunden). Ein völlig nutzlos verschwendeter Urlaub.
Ein tolles Hotel, sehr geschätzt
Im Gegensatz zu Phuket ist Ko Lanta ein Ort, um die Ruhe Thailands zu geniessen. Ich habe hier gegen Ende April zwei Tage im Rawi Warin verbracht und war sehr beeindruckt. Das Spa war großartig - die Massage und der Service waren gut, im Vergleich zu anderen 5-Sterne Hotels in Thailand war es gar nicht teuer. Das Essen im Restaurant war sehr lecker und die Atmospäre in der Bar war schön. Das kleine Kino und das Musikzimmer waren tolle Unterhaltungsmöglichkeiten.
Ich fand, dass es rundherum ein ausgezeichnetes Hotel für diejenigen ist, die Privatsphäre und Entspannung zu schätzen wissen, egal, ob man hier mit dem Partner oder auch alleine hinkommt!
A gracious hotel to appreciate
Ko Lanta unlike Phuket is the best place to enjoy quietness in Thailand. I spent two nights in late April in Rawi Warin and was impressed with it. Spa was great - good massage and service, not expensive compared to other 5 star hotels in Thailand. Food in the restaurant was very delicious and the atmosphere of the bar was nice. The mini movie theather and music room was one of the features to find fun with. In general, I find it's an excellent hotel for those who enjoy private time, relaxation, no matter you come with your partner or even alone!
Avoid this hotel. It may be beautifully landscaped with luxurious Thai architecture and a fabulous infinity pool but Rawi Warin fails to deliver on so many key levels for a resort that purports to be at the top end of the market.
Don't waste your time
Terribly overpriced rooms & food. Tiny villas. Only one restaurant was open serving OK food at exorbitant prices considering its Thailand. Staff gracious but not trained. Facilities completely not ready. Absolutely nothing for kids to do. Scraggy beach with rocks. Our condominium pool is ten times better than theirs. Spa unfinished. Topped off by most boring 2-hr drive from Krabi Airport one-way. A complete waste of our holiday.
Dont go until its fully open
we were also here over xmas and would not waste your money again until the hotel is properly open - this is a soft opening and they really mean it......very painful vacation.....
My hubby and I stayed at Rawi Warin over xmas for 5 nights. We were the 8th guests staying in the hotel since openeing.
