Koh Lanta Holidays

Dazzling Island Paradise

Soak up the carefree, laid-back 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 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.

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
