I had such high hopes for these ideally positioned beach huts. Another review pointed out that guests will have the pleasure of rats, mice and even snakes in your room. This may be the case, personally I didn't see any, my problem was more of a human one, or more specifically a terrifying, dollar- hungry pair of them, both female,...

We loved staying at River Sand. The ladies that run the place are absolute characters. The hotel is in a great location - right on the beach. It is located in the south-western end of the island on a beach called Klong Toab - which is quiet and away from the hustle and bustle of the northern end of the...

We did not stay at this place, but at the Rawi Warin resort 300 m to the North. However, we had lunch 3 times at River Sands and all three times were great. Fantastic location, not crowded, great good (& fantastic lemon shakes), and very nice and friendly staff speaking great English. Definitely worth a visit!

We stayed at lanta riversand for christmas and we enjoyed our stay. The resort could be a paradise if it would be kept better. Our boungalow was nice although it was one of the last ones without renovation. But the area around was a mess and kind of a dumping ground for old construction material. The beach is nice but...

We loved riversand. The bungalows were quaint and lovely to stay in. The patio restaurant overlooking the ocean brought guests from other accommodations. The staff were funny and engaging they do speak fluent English contrary to a previous comment. The atmosphere was relaxing and the beach is wonderful. You are staying in thatched huts with bamboo floors so you have...

The huts look nice on first sight - and the beach is very nice and calm. Sadly, the houses are designed to be very open - that means you might have rats, mice and even snakes in your room. Your bed is secured by a mosquito net, so if you dont mind those animals in your room and bathroom then...

We stayed there 2 nights and we enjoyed so much. Very simple accomodation but clean and comfortable. We felt like Robinson Crusoe in those bamboo huts.

Spent a week at the River Sand in a bungalow on the 3rd row. Large room, bathroom with cold water and wc, mosquito net and fan, hammok (150 bath for the duration of your stay) on the terras and a view on the "private" beach". The beds are a bit hard (but then again all beds I have had in...

Having loved our visit in 2009 we were really looking forward to returning to Lanta River Sand bungalows on Koh Lanta. Despite emailing Nita the owner on four occasions and telephoning prior to our arrival as requested we were meet with blank looks when we arrived. We were horrified to find out they had not kept as promised a seafront...
