Room

We stayed at room 83, on the eighth floor of the building. This super clean, non -smoking room is good for 2-3 occupants, the third being a child younger than 12. It has the usual amenities you’d find in other hotels but what sets this apartment apart from other below 100USD accommodations is the fully-functioning mini kitchen. It has a two-door fridge, a microwave, and a front-open washing machine.

It is also equipped with the following:

  • Coffee and coffee maker
  • Complimentary bottled water
  • Cupboards
  • Flat-screen TV with English channels
  • Wall-sized mirror
  • Built-in wardrobe
  • Mini terrace with clothes rack
  • Intercom
  • Towels
  • Toiletries
  • Hairdryer
  • Mini safe
  • Drawers

Bathroom

It is a OK. It’s super clean and comfortable. There’s warm water in both shower and tap. I, personally felt at home immediately using the bathroom. There are no weird stains on the walls and especially no mildew. The drain system is good, so water doesn’t pool around the toilet area unlike Ibis Phuket Patong Hotel.

WIFI

It is fast. Fast enough to stream videos from Youtube and other websites. There weren’t any hiccups logging in.

Parking

It is private and gated. So you could sleep sound in the evening knowing your car is safe in the garage.

Staff

They are friendly and speak English. They are quick to respond when we can’t get the washing machine to work.

Price

We stayed for two nights and paid 66 USD. If this isn’t a great deal, I don’t know what is then.

Overall

We love the room, the staff, and the location. We definitely recommend this.

Hotel Review: Phutara Lanta Resort Koh Lanta Krabi

Accomodation: Phutara Lanta Resort. The best family hotel we have gone to so far.

Location: 693 Moo 2, Saladan,  Koh Lanta Krabi 81150 Thailand
☎: +66980307182

 

Room: We stayed in one of the Two-Bedroom Luxury Poolside Suites on the second floor of a two-storey  duplex building.  The rooms are huge,  in fact the management allows a maximum of 4 adults and 2 children. It is super clean, tidy,  and well insulated; noise is inaudible even between the two bedrooms in the suite. It is well ventilated with separate air conditioning system for each bedroom.  There are several windows if you opt for fresh air, and a nice patio obscured by trees and vegetation in front. This lovely suite has several lighting options to choose from, big built-in closet,  two flat screen TVs, large wall mounted mirror,  lovely big bathroom, and a mini kitchen equipped with cupboards and standard sized sink. The huge king-sized bed is placed on a sturdy wooden built-in platform,  so the bed sits  firmly on it without rickety or creaking sound which was one of the weaknesses of Nadivana Serviced Apartments in Aonang Krabi.

Amenities: The usual room amenities are available like fridge,  hairdryer,  toiletries, electric kettle, and complimentary stuff;  tea,  coffee, and bottled water. But what really got me was the mini kitchen with sink and cupboards. This is the best family hotel we have gone to so far. It makes all the mommy stuff easy and comfortable.

Pool is big and clean. There’s a proper kid pool, 60 cm deep,  perfect for toddlers and young children.  The adult pool is 130 to 160 cm. deep,  perfect for not so good swimmer like us.😊 The pool is well maintained, we had a great time!

Wifi connection is excellent. We did pretty much everything; movie and video streaming, blogging, online games,  social media engagement. Hatzanda and Lanta Riviera Villa just lost the first spot of the strongest WiFi connection as Phutara’s Wifi connection is awesome. No glitch,  the connection was strong everywhere in the hotel premises and I mean every where. Even in the pool area and the parking lot the connection was great.

Restaurant is located at the second floor of the management building. It is small but clean, and has a nice view of the pool on one side and the lush greeneries on the other. Heavy wooden tables and chairs surround a dainty counter where food are served.

Food. The complimentary breakfast is basic, nothing fancy (like Wake Up Hotel in Aonang Krabi),  but tasty which includes fried rice,  stir-fry noodles,  sliced bread,  eggs,  pancakes,  iced tea, orange juice,  and brewed coffee. Food is freshly cooked,  nothing was re-cooked. They also serve lunch and dinner with varied menus like Indian,  Mexican,  European,  Thai,  Pizzas,  and Steaks. We were told that since it was low season, when we came, they won’t be serving dinner. It was not a problem for us but this may not sit well with other visitors.

Resort ground is elevated a few feet from road level, so one could actually get a pretty good view of Klong Khong beach from a far. It is studded with tall trees, flowers,  and tables and benches.  The ground is tidy, mowed, and flowers are trimmed. A good place to hang out for late afternoon tea or coffee, or have a nice read.

Parking is available onsite.  One in front of the hotel with camera and another behind (no CCTV cam).

Services. Phutara’s staff are friendly,  considerate, and they speak English. So communication is not a problem.

Price: $143 for two nights

Overall: 4.5/5 rating
