Lanta Cottage Hotel review

Accommodation: Lanta Cottage Hotel

It is located at Sala Dan, Ko Lanta District, Krabi 81150 Thailand. We had our first getaway here after the travel ban was lifted. Businesses had just started to open, and the entire place felt like it had just woke up from a keep slumber. Going into Lanta Cottage, you’ll see untrimmed plants, dried leaves all over the place, padlocked sheds, and dusty receiving/canteen area.

Room

Nothing fancy about the room, it’s air conditioned and pretty spacious. There’s a mini kitchenette with sink. Plates and utensils are also provided. It’s a family room with one double bed and a bunk bed. Both are pretty hard on the back. But at least they’re not rickety. Please take a look at Lanta Cottage in the video at 4.25.

  • Other room amenities include a flat screen TV, a fridge, a wooden wardrobe, and towels.
  • Complimentaries are the usual coffee and tea, bottled water, and toiletries.

Bathroom

I’m personally not so fond of the bathroom. It is large but the design is not so well-thought of. The toilet is placed very near the wall that you won’t be able to sit well. The bidette spray is placed at the left side of the toilet cramped up in between the toilet and the wall. It’s just way too uncomfortable. It’s not so clean too.

WIFI Connection

Wifi connection is important these days more than ever. Due to the pandemic, several jobs have transitioned online. And we are one of them. However, to our great dismay, this hotel’s Wifi connection had been severed by the provider. We didn’t want to complain thinking it might be an aftermath of the lockdown.

The Pool

Pool is life for our children. They love to hang out by the pool, and have been trying to learn swimming. This hotel’s pool is one of its strength. Kid’s pool is 2.5ft deep, pretty safe even for toddlers. Adult’s pool is 4.5ft deep. Although, not so clean, but we’ve seen worst than it.

Breakfast

Lanta cottage has restaurant area, but didn’t offer breakfast during this time. So we ended up eating in this restaurant overlooking the Bamboo beach. Please watch the video to see what I mean.

Parking Lot

There was no designated parking area. Cars can be parked on any vacant lot any where around the hotel area.

Clientele

Lanta Cottage may be preferred by families or group of friends who prefer to cook or bring their own food. And it could also be a nice choice those who opt for a budget-friendly accomodation.

Price

We booked Lanta Cottage for a little over 60USD, definitely cheap. If you don’t mind a few inconveniences here and there, then, it’s a good choice.

Although it wasn’t what I expected, we were just thankful to be out of the house and enjoy the outdoor. We hope Lanta Cottage can bounced back to its feet.

Watch English Movies in Hatyai Cineplex Central Festival

Hatyai Cineplex is a popular movie provider in Thailand. Two Cineplex theaters are found in Hatyai City, one at Central Festival and the other at Diana. There is also one in Songkhla Tesco Lotus, unlike those in Hatyai, this however shows English movies dubbed in Thai language ONLY. So foreigners from Songkhla, Sadao, Satun, and other nearby places have to travel to Hatyai to be able to watch movies in English soundtrack.

My family and I particularly love Hatyai Cineplex in Central Festival. This is our go to movie theater whenever there’s something we’d like to watch on the big screen. Recently we watched Avengers:Endgame, and I’d like to share with you our experience in a short video down below. For parents who will be watching a 3-hour long movie with children, you might want to check out how to watch without bathroom break.

Hatyai Cineplex Central Festival is big, grand, and clean. It is fully equipped with several machines for electronic ticket, as well as ticket booth for those who would like to walk-in and purchase a ticket.
There is a huge waiting lounge in and out of the cinema. You could comfortable chill out there while waiting. The ambience of the place is great, heavily carpeted-floor, colorful movie posters in glass frame outlined in equally vivid, bright, colorful lights. These frames are beautifully distributed on the walls and ceiling. We love the design.

Hatyai Cineplex has IMAX, which allows you to experience a movie in 4G. We’ve tried this out when we watched Batman vs Superman, which we regretted both the 4G experience and the movie itself. There are people who love 4G but it is definitely not for us. We were dizzy the whole time, and had a splitting headache after.


Anyways, the restrooms are clean. However I’d wish there’s one in between the theaters. You see the restrooms are situated at both ends of the hallway way, separated by 6 to 7 huge theaters. So it is a pretty long walk especially if you’re taking a bathroom break right in the middle of the movie.


Hatyai Cineplex is located on the top most floor of Central Festival Hatyai. If you are driving there, you could simple type in Hatyai Cineplex Central Festival in your GPS device or google map.
