Lanta Residence & Spa
Travel Blogs from Ko Lanta
My days continued to be relaxing in the lazy island of Koh Lanta.
I filled my days with reading by the pool , strolls around the shops and dinners by the sea.
Now that I was alone I got to know a few people around the village.
The girl that makes jewelry that custom made an anklet for me, the old lady that always sits at the same bench …
... in a good way. The time flew past as we trundled ever so slowly up the road stopping at whichever bars we could find that were joining in and had massive barrels of water filled up ready for showering each other. It's a great festival and one I'm really glad we managed to catch at the right time with it being annual. Everyone seems to get involved and it's great to see families taking their kids out to get wet and spray each other and join in. It's completely different to New ...
... I imaj), assuring me that it would just make me feel relaxed, whereas it actually made me feel really dizzy and sick. I opted to leave the bar crawl early and head back to get some sleep, which again, didn't happen.
On the trip the next day the first stop was Monkey Beach, under the jurisdiction of semi vicious macaques. I decided to stay in the water as Amit had advised me he'd seen someone get too close and got bitten. It ...

A lot livelier, it was a nice change to be able to walk everywhere and not be hassled for a tuk tuk. Nice bungalow right on the beach with a perfect view and a good bar/restaurant that played good music.... Although we've heard a lot of bob and I'm sure they put it on for us! I did however feel foolishly unnerved by the tsunami references .... I totally get the memorial sight and the ...

FIrst of all do no be fooled i is not a spa. The hotel has a dated gym and a roofop swimming pool so can not really call themselves a spa. The pool is small but nice and the place is clean. It is a short walk from the centre in a quiet street. You can ren bikes (more expensive than other places ) and buy tickets. BE WARE DO NO BUY ANY TICKETS FROM THEM. My friends bough tickets to anoher island only to be left stranded mid way as their tickets were not valid and had to wait for hours for anoher bus and ofcourse pay a new ticket.
Then my other friend that was staying there too bought a ticket to take her all the way to her hotel only to again be stranded not reaching her hotel and having to pay for an expensive taxi ride ( when she paid extra in the first place in order to be taken sriaght to he hotel)
Final straw was them changing the price of my room for my last week ( after being there for 10 days already) demanding more money. The woman was extremelly rude and will no listen to me. I tried to explain it is not possible to tell me the price has changed on my last day and demand more money ( especially after there were so many of us in tha hotel for so long!!) I had to pay more in the end when i shouldnt have and all the arguing left me with a very bad experience and them being rude.
Also they make you pay for the electicity you use which add up on your bill and also can you trust their readings?
Just stay in a beach hut not there!!
