What to say about Hatzanda except excellent. We stayed for 7 nights and then booked another 3, as a testament to how much we enjoyed it. Mai and her team run a lovely hotel, backed by a fantastic customer service. The staff were all incredibly friendly and helpful, responding to any minor issues immediately. The hotel itself is excellent. As a family of 4 we had D106, and the bunk bed was perfect for our girls. The room was quiet, clean and comfortable. The patio is perfect for relaxing, and the pool is lovely, clean and great for the kids. The location on Khlong Khong beach is ideal; not directly on the beach perhaps, but in my opinion this didn’t detract from the hotel at all.
Koh Lanta in general is so laid back and slow-paced, and Hatzanda is no different. The hotel’s location is like Goldilocks’ porridge: not too close to Sala Dan, and not too far to feel removed. In fact it’s proximity to a 7-11 is great, and it’s a short walk to the bars and restaurants either on the beach or the main road.
The Hatzanda staff helped arrange scooter rentals and arrange island tours to Ko Haa/Ko Rok helpfully and easily. Oh, and the little restaurant is great for breakfasts; get the pancakes or Vietnamese eggs!
All in all we will always recommend Hatzanda. Our stay was faultless and can’t wait to return in the future, and Mai and the team are excellent at what they do.
