Where to stay in Ko Lanta

Most accommodations available in Ko Lanta sit on the west coast of the island. Close to the shore, you can find mid-range to expensive beach resorts and rental apartments. Expect to find less expensive rooms farther north and south along the coast, away from the main areas of development. The remoter areas also boast a few fine resorts with spas and private strips of coastline.
