Koh Lanta Holidays

Soak up the carefree atmosphere of Koh Lanta. It used to be a backpacker's haunt, however, now it's more of an upscale hotspot where exclusivity is key.

Home to wonderful snorkelling and diving plus Old Lanta Town, Koh Lanta is ideal for a step back in time. Koh Lanta dazzles, just as it's 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.

Combine your stay in Koh Lanta with a few days in Krabi to visit the Klong Thom Hot Springs, or for more island life hop over to neighbouring Koh Yao Yai

Destination Highlights
  • Perfect for combining with Krabi
  • Superb diving and snorkelling
  • Sunset cruises
  • Koh Rok - considered one of the best beaches in Asia

Whilst most people will head to Koh Lanta for relaxation and the chance to truly unwind, there are things to see and do in the area if you're keen to explore.

  • Lanta Old Town

    Lanta Old Town is a charming little place with houses and shops built on stilts, perched above the sea. Teak wood-lined streets are home to a cosmopolitan mix of Thai-Buddhist, Thai Chinese, Thai Muslim and Chao-Lay (sea gypsies), giving the town a richly diverse atmosphere. Fishermen catch fresh seafood for you to eat at the numerous restaurants, and there is shopping at the many markets and small shops scattered along the main street.
