Situated in the southern Thailand province of Krabi on the Andaman Sea, part of an archipelago of 52 Islands and a protected National Marine Park, Koh Lanta is the 4th largest Island in Thailand. Thanks to its abundance of trees, forests and stunning sandy beaches, Koh Lanta is considered to be a tropical paradise.
Koh Lanta has everything a visitor needs to enjoy a perfect stay, from exciting tours and activities, to the best in beach going and top notch amenities and experiences, including amazing restaurants, bars and shops, to keep both short- and long-term visitors entertained and comfortable. Dive world class sites, ride horses, visit deserted islands, learn to cook authentic Thai cuisine – the list of activities to experience on Koh Lanta is endless. It is only recently that Koh Lanta has started its serious path to develop from a sleepy enclave to a first-class tourist destination, and thanks to its relative vicinity to Krabi International Airport, Koh Lanta is today one of Thailand’s fastest growing tourist and vacation home destinations. In recent years infrastructure has been updated continuously, a first bridge has been built, and permission and funding have already been approved by Central Government for the start of the second permanent bridge linking the mainland to Ko Lanta Noi and Koh Lanta Yai, which will make the island completely accessible by road. The local government is learning from the mistakes made in other Thai resort regions like Phuket, Koh Samui and Pattaya, dedicated to mass-tourism, and it is committed to making of Koh Lanta the perfect idyll, one that is lately attracting the interest of foreign retired people who want to make of the island their retirement home away from home.
