Having our own access to the pool was great. It was private, relaxing with views of the garden. The staff were very approachable, helpful and friendly.

9. Marina Hut Guest House
Room was very large, bed was large (queen I think), with good quality sheets and pillows. Fridge and kettle provided. Shampoo and liquid soap dispensers in the bathroom rather than those wasteful little bottles. Overall it was a great place and I actually ended up extending my stay ‘cause I wasn't ready to leave. Less than a minute walk from the beach and surrounded by restaurants, yet it is in a relatively chill part of Lanta and you can get large stretches of the beach to yourself. Nwani, South Korea
Guests have the option to choose fan or air-conditioned rooms, each of which has its own flat-screen cable TV, a refrigerator, and a private bathroom. The Guest House offers motorbike rentals to guests. A short walk is needed to get from Marina Hut Guest House to the beach.
