Where Is Klong Klong Beach On Koh Lanta?
As Klong Khong Beach is smaller than neighbouring Klong Nin, it is not that developed with a handful of hotels and restaurants. (See our Best Klong Khong Restaurants guide for more info). If you need more variety, a quick tuk tuk ride to Klong Nin provides lots more options on Klong Nin Beach itself, and there are also many places to eat along on the main road too. It’s also a short taxi or motorbike ride from Klong Khong over to Lanta Old Town, just over the other side of Koh Lanta, which has some beautiful old Thai wooden houses and several seaside restaurants and bars to enjoy.
How To Get To Arthaya Villa
If you are arriving at Krabi Airport or Phuket Airport booking an Express transfer will allow you to transfer quickly, safely and direct. Our driver will be waiting for you upon arrival at the arrivals gate with your name on a plaque then its a combination of minivan and speedboat travel direct to the villa. If you arrive very late at night the speedboat may not be operating, however you can normally still arrive on Koh Lanta the same day by using the Private Minivan service.
If you are already in Thailand you can also be picked up from your hotel, with a time that suits you best and safely transferred directly to the Villa by using the Express Transfers from popular areas like Ao Nang, Krabi Town, or Phuket these areas are also serviced by using the Private minivan.

Arthaya Villa is located near Klong Khong Beach which is a very friendly, relaxed beach area and takes no more than 10 minutes to walk to. Along the beach you will find many established beach bars and restaurants how ever along the road side it is not as developed as other areas with only a handful of Thai restaurants, convenience stores and coffee shops.
Places To Eat And Drink Near To Arthaya Villa
Turn left along the main road and walk 5 mins you will have a 7 eleven 24 hour convenience store. There are fresh fruit and vegetable stores located here also and opposite the road you will enjoy the Meeting Point Restaurant where the Massaman Curry is very good. A little further along the roadside on the left side is a small Thai Seafood restaurant is called Lod Yao here the food is excellent – highly recommended is Goong Tod Kratiam Prik Thai (Shrimp fried with garlic and pepper) Lard Nar Talay (large noodles in gravy with seafood). There’s also the Kunda Anti Pop Cafe vegetarian restaurant serving great crepes, breads, turkish coffee and above all a great place to hang out with great hosts. Neng Restaurant and Bula Restaurant sit at the bottom of Klong Khong road which is opposite a 7 Eleven 24 hour convenience store. On the right side along the road there’s Peak Cafe serving nice coffee and sandwiches, and try Sonya Restaurant.
On the Klong Khong Beach all the resorts have their own restaurants. The Riviera resort has a very tropical feel to it with the restaurant on the beach. I would suggest also head to Fishermans Cottage which is situated behind the 7 Eleven, here the food is always amazing and presented nicely. For drinks the best places to hang out are the Sound Shack, Feeling Bar, Chocolate Bar and Fishermans Cottage, however there are many more beach bars to choose from, you only have to walk along the beach. See more recommendations for places to eat on Klong Khong.

How To Travel Around Koh Lanta From Villa Arthaya
You will find many enjoyable things close to the villa with in easy walking distance. However Koh Lanta is quite a big island, around 35 km long, so for a stay of more than a couple of days renting a car, motorbike or tuk tuk would be advised. You can hire them on daily or weekly basis and Nick, the villa manager, will be happy to help and organise these rentals for you when you arrive on Koh Lanta.
If you are not comfortable with a bike or car then you can easily travel back and forth on Koh Lanta by using the local tuk tuk drivers. However even after negotiating a good price this option does start to become expensive as each ride is charged per person. To find a tuk tuk driver just wait next to the road and wave one down. When you are in Saladan Village, the main Koh Lanta shopping area, there are many tuk-tuks waiting on the main road, near to the 7-11. If there is a group of you or it’s late at night, it’s probably best to call a taxi instead – see our page on Taxis, Tuk Tuks and Hiring Motorbikes on Koh Lanta for phone numbers and more info.
Things To Do On Koh Lanta
Whether you are travelling with friends, a romantic couple or a family with small children Koh Lanta offers many activities for you to enjoy. Take a day kayaking, enjoy time at the monkey school or squirm at the snake show. Go deep sea fishing in the day for Marlin and Barracuda or at night you can fish for squid. A Golf driving range is at hand to keep your swing in or try something new like yoga, paddle boarding or windsurfing if the winds are right.
If you really want to get in to the culture you can enjoy an evening watching Muay Thai in one of three Koh Lanta stadiums or get your tongue around the language with a Thai for beginners class. Koh Lanta also offers amazing natural beauty with two caves to explore and a national park full of virgin rainforest with wild monkeys, not forgetting a waterfall in the green season and a butterfly farm.
