Soak up the carefree, laid-back atmosphere of Koh Lanta, a backpacker's haunt turned upscale hotspot.
Home to wonderful snorkelling and diving and Old Lanta Town, ideal for a step back in time, we love Koh Lanta because it dazzles, just as its Thai name indicates. Fall in love with the long stretches of white, coral-lined beaches fringed by lush mangroves and set against a backdrop of rugged mountains. Let the crystalline waters lap at your toes as you watch the sun sink over the ocean in a blazing splash of vibrant colours. Be sure to book a day tour to Koh Rok, a blindingly white beach so scenic, you won't believe your eyes.
