Had a wonderful time at Lantana Galu with Tina and Thule on the yoga and fitness retreat. Very well planned and organised. The meal plan was ideal for the workouts and yoga with post-workout fresh veg+fruit juice blends to compliment the exercises. I would definitely attend again and would recommend to anyone in need for some much needed R&R and self-care!

We stayed at Lantana Galu for a month in Feb 2021 and it has been one of our best stays by the beach. We were apprehensive about staying for a month but Lantana came highly recommended and they surpassed our expectations. The apartment was spacious, well furnished and equipped and exceptionally well maintained and clean. The pools are lovely especially the beach front pool which has the most amazing view of the white sands. The staff, from the lovely manager Diana, to the reception, gardeners, restaurant and cleaners, are all so courteous, friendly and attentive. Our son especially enjoyed his daily banter with Edward at reception. Overall, our stay at Lantana was fantastic and we can’t wait to be back. Asante sana to all the team!!

We loved going to Lantana during out time in Galu. The view is immaculate the standards like no other and the service was great. This was one of my favorite hotels. However, the food was not up to scratch and I did regret ordering from here. The fruitti de mare pasta came out soggy, over cooked, lacked flavour and extremly watery . We were actually able to pour out the water onto a cup that had collected at the bottom of the pasta. The coffee, and deserts were well made and we liked the ice cream and apple crumble option. We were recommended that the cocktails were fantastic by a friend who had them a day before.....but when we went back the following day the bartender was unavailable so the waiter attempted at making it and my friend did not like it. I had an iced latte which was good. I would suggest to have flavours available for the coffee as there is nothing like sitting at this gorgeous restaurant overlooking the ocean and an incredible view enjoying your morning cup of coffee. Overall great hotel, but restaurant needs improvement for the prices it's subpar and overpriced. wouldn't mind the prices if it was actually good food.

As a family we really enjoyed our week stay at Lantana Galu Beach Hotel.The gardens around the villas are lovely to walk in or take photographs of numerous flowers, frogs, monkeys. The kids loved being at the pool that is very safe even for them to be on their own. They also have a baby pool. The beach is (very clean) a pristine white beach, with several options to snorkel. The villas and apartments are beautifully designed with an exquisite coastal look and all fully fitted with cutlery, crockery, and a washing machine. It feels like home away from home. If you are not up for cooking there is a chef that can be called in at a small fee and he or she makes a divine meal. Or you can eat at the Restaurant by the pool. Lantana is the perfect place to escape to especially after this Covid year. There is ample space for social distancing. Moreover the hotel follows strict protocols for everyone's safety regarding Corona. If you visit give yourself a minimum of 5 days to enjoy everything. Safe to go by road and avoid airport or ferry congestion. We called the hotel before to know the best route to the hotel. Enjoy your holiday there! We sure did!🤗

Dear Lorraine0419, Thank you so much for the amazing review. The Lantana family was greatly honored by your stay with us and we're glad you loved the lush gardens and even the "citers" that come with it. It's wonderful to read how the children enjoyed the pool and you all felt safe with the measures we have taken as well as the many possibilities of being in the same space with other holiday makers yet being able to keep social distance. The restaurant and private chef appreciate your kind sentiments and are happy to welcome you back at any time. We all look forward to your next visit and are very glad that you had a great time.
