Not all of the accommodation units are readily accessible by wheel chair but most of the restaurants, libraries and other facilities may be reached by wheelchair. The paths within the resort, though steep in places, are also navigable. For more information contact our reservations department and indicate that you would like an accommodation unit that is easily accessed by wheelchair.
Can I smoke a cigarette/ cigar/ pipe in any of the resort’s restaurants??
The past 8 years the Thai government’s on-going reinforcement of smoke-free zones in public areas has required us to further restrict smoking in all our restaurants. The law says that Patrons are NOT allowed to smoke where food is served. Therefore, please note that smoking is not permitted in the Spice’ N Rice Thai restaurant and in our signature restaurant the Seven Seas restaurant; both restaurants have an outdoor terrace; for the smokers only a small section in each of these 2 restaurants has been allocated for those who wants to light up a cigarette.
Another outlet the Banyan Tree Poolside Café, adjacent to the large pool at the villa estate, also has an area allocated for smokers.
Rak Talay, by the beach, an all fresco restaurant, remains to this day – and this could change at any time - the only non-restricted area for smokers; though, one, as a matter of courtesy, should always ask guests at nearby tables if it is suitable for you to light up a cigarette. Thank you for your understanding.
There is a small but active market in the village of Baan Saladan at the northern tip of Koh Lanta. You can arrange for resort transportation to take you there. There are limited shopping available from May to October.
