A van with 12 riders is 400 THB/person/way. We now have one van booked for 12 riders departing from Patong Expat. We have opened a list for a second van so please adivse us ASAP if you want a seat. Payment of 800 baht (round trip) will be required in advance.

(One-way distance is 263km) After the Sarasin bridge continue toward Phang Nga and Krabi on Rt 402. (Approximately 5 km past the bridge stay in the RIGHT-HAND lane of the junction or you'll be headed to Khao Lak.) At approximately 10 km after the bridge merge into Rt 4 and you'll continue on Rt 4 eastward through Phang Nga past Krabi eventually turning RIGHT on Rt 4026 headed to Lanta Island. You must purchase your ferry ticket about 200 meters before the terminal, on the left. From the ferry onto Lanta Noi to the bridge across to Lanta Yai island is 5km. Midway along this distance make a LEFT (HHH) (There is a large overhead blue sign also and this is the main traffic flow). After the bridge at your first junction turn RIGHT (HHH). When entering Sala Dan town turn LEFT (HHH). About 3.3km before the resort you'll turn RIGHT (HHH) just past a Tesco/Lotus & 7/11 on your right. Note 1: From the bridge exit to the resort is 25km.

NOTE: For all meals other than Saturday evening everyone is asked to order their food directly from the menu. You will have a 10% discount on food.
