Restaurants and Resorts on Koh Larn

If you come to Koh Larn you may discover that it would be nice to stay a few nights. I personally liked it so much that I ended up staying for two years, back in 2002-2004. Back then there were only a hand full of resorts on Koh Larn, and some of those didn't even have full time electricity. Most rooms lacked air conditioning and hot water as well, so much has changed since then. Now there are at least ten or twenty times the number of places to stay. Almost all rooms available on Koh Larn have both air conditioning and hot water these days. The number of restaurants has exploded in recent years and now many of them have wonderful ocean views.

Sea Beach Guest House of Koh Larn

Sea Beach Guest House

Sea Beach Guest House has three locations to choose from. One of them is only forty meters from the pier in Naban.

Rimtalay Resort sits along the shore facing Pattaya and Jomtien. Bungalow style rooms of large and small, there are also row style rooms. There is even a house for rent if you are in a group or just have that need for extra space. Ocean views from nice patios are especially nice in the evening. The drawback is the distance to the main village, but there is always transportation available.

Lareena Resort

Lareena Resort is just on the left as you are approaching  the island on the ferry.  A very well appointed resort, with tasteful decor in all rooms. If you want to be close to the village and have beautiful views of Jomtien then this is the place for you. People rave about the restaurants food and you don't have to be a guest to dine there. There are relax areas where you can lay back and read or socialize. All rooms have air con, hot water and free WIFI. This is the kind of place to that whispers relax. The only downside is the sound of the ferry boats coming and going, but this is only during the day, and really some people enjoy watching the boats come and go.

Xanadu Resort of Samae Beach, on Koh Larn, Pattaya Beach, Thailand

Xanadu Resort of Samae Beach

Located just a few steps from Samae Beach waters near the southern end. A very colorful place with rooms and exteriors painted in many bright contrasting colors. This is a great daytime place to be, the rooms are located just far enough to avoid the noise if you like to have an afternoon nap. Samae beach is well known for stunning sunsets so If you love beautiful sunsets then this is the place to be. There is dining on their beach view balcony where you can watch the sunset. You can then top the evening off in their beach side cocktail lounge. Xanadu has a small fleet of shuttles for free pick up and baggage handling from Naban pier. All rooms have safes and the rooms use secure electronic key card entry system. Security cameras are located on the grounds as well as security persons. The price per room is 2,500B includes breakfast, WIFI, and shuttle services. My advice is to book ahead using Agoda, Booking.com or Trip Adviser, especially on weekends and holidays.

Also available is an airconditioned conference hall that can accommodate 200 persons. Photo

The Light House

Located midway between Samae Beach and Naban Village. Artistically decorated each room has a different theme. Beautiful well kept grounds makes for a very relaxing experience.

Baan Rae of Koh Larn

Located half way between the main village and Samae Beach. Pretty basic furnishings but very clean and well kept, this isn’t a fancy place, that said the prices are not fancy either. Rooms start at 800B and this includes hot water and air con.  A small restaurant, again nothing fancy but then again nor are the prices. Free WIFI provided in common areas. If your on a budget then this is your best bang for the buck place to stay on Koh Larn.

WIFI available in common areas near the check in counter

Lomtalay of Tawaen Beach

Located near the north end of Tawaen Beach, just steps from the water. Tawaen Beach is by far the most popular beach on Koh Larn receiving around three thousand visitors a day.

I can recommend the Hard Tien resort at the very end of Tien Beach .. at 1,200 it was cheaper than some of the 'urban' concrete structures near Naban pier... and it gave direclty on the beach, although no wi-fi and a grumpy manager!


Dave also writes: another very good cheap option is Ao-Na Resort on 081 4445209 . It is close to Na-Ban pier on the hill road to Samae on the right ... it says 800 baht on the wall, and i got a motorbike included in this price, big room too!

Thank you for your feedback Dave, and if I am not mistaken those are the fishing boats at the north end of the beach, cleverly converted into rooms.
