Came here several years ago and been coming back here ever since. My last visit only a few days ago was as wonderful as all the other times. The laid back, chilled out, and indeed funky athmosphere make this place a must. Enjoy together, either with the friendly staff or other travellers. The food is amazing! The rooms are relaxed...

Stayed here 6 days with my family and really liked it. The food is excellent - we had almost all our meals here and everything was really tasty. The rooms very nice, but we would have liked a little cleaning during our stay. We liked the outdoor bathroom - and got used to all the animals also using it ;-)...

The last time I stayed here was 4 years ago... not much has changed though the place is a little faded and worn now (as you'd expect). What I love about Where Else is the hand-made, hippy vibe... it feels like you're a castaway in a hotel made of dangling coconuts and coral. This place is definitely the coolest on...

I loved this place, but for the same price just a few feet down the beach you can stay in a much nicer place. Be it that I did stay at this place nearly 5 years ago, maybe it is much nicer now, however I just remember Rats running around everywhere, even in the rooms. It is Very Rustic however...

This place was highly recommended to us so we checked it out but were turned off by the bungalow style and we slept across the street in traditional style rooms at "Just Come" instead. However we spent most of our time here anyway eating and drinking and just hanging out. The internet is great so I was able to skype...

Very well put together bar on the beach. Lots of handmade seating and eating areas- even the menu was beautifully designed! Came for dinner and drinks (which were both delicious and great value) and would recommend as a must to anyone visiting koh lanta. Friendly staff and clientele and memorable evening.

Haven't found a similar place yet on any other island, this one has it's own vibe. The bamboo bungalows are all unique in design, built to amaze, decorated to feel like our own thai home, some even with bathrooms with a view of the sky. If you are afraid of insects and frogs, this might not be the best place...

We didnt actually stay here but 3 of our friends did so we spent a lot of time here drinking, eating and relaxing in hammocks, watching sunsets! Really chilled out place. Staff were always lovely and couldnt do enough for you. Food was delicious, we ate breakfast here almost everyday, the aladin will keep you going till dinner! And they...

I was traveling with a group of 8 people, so I made a reservation in advance. I only got a verbal confirmation, but it worked out perfectly. We arrived in the late afternoon, the staff gave us a warm welcome and the bungalows were ready. The rooms were clean, simple and decorated in a cute way. I mostly liked the...

I haven't seen any rats (yet), but no rat can ruin my stay at this amazingly layed back place. The huts are primitive, but full of atmosphere. We originally booked at Isara but we wanted more shade and more atmosphere and found it 50 meters from there. Super friendly and slightly crazy staff, good food and drinks, overall just a...
