Here is our pick of the best luxury villas with a view in Koh Lanta. We have selected these villas, many that are part of a hotel or a resort, by their view (obviously!) but also their overall experience including pools with a view, beach, private pools, bars with views and so on. The villas at the top of our list are our favourite.
The serene and culturally rich island of Koh Lanta can be found just a stone’s throw from Phi-Phi in Thailand. The island boats miles of peaceful, white sand, coral-fringed beaches, several notable dive spots, rugged tree-covered hills, mangroves and traditional villages. Koh Lanta is only an hour and a half from Krabi International airport. Stay in a luxury villa, just make sure it’s one with a view; read on for our guide to the Best Luxury Villas With A View In Koh Lanta…
