This place has to be recommended! The bungalows are clean, the staff is really really friendly, the restaurant is very good and one of the best things about it: the why not-bar is so close...best bar with the best staff on the island! The best fireshow-every night- and, also every night, very entertaining live music! For sure!!!! :-D The beach...

The arm pit of Kho Lanta. Bought a "bamboo bungalow, very clean ,on the beach" blind on the boat from Phi Phi. For 500b in low season I thought it must be good. In reality it was in a great location but was a rotten bamboo hut, visible bed bugs, lots of spiders, mossies etc. Upgraded to a indoor 600b...

So me and my boyfriend are also guilty of being tricked by the Phi Phi cat lady...after reading reviews we had a mild panic but in reality it's not that bad. The beach isn't amazing but it is incredibly quiet and relaxing. The room was alright, bed was fine but bathroom not clean at all! Food was actually really nice...

But afterwards we went on tripadvisor to check the hotel en we got scared! Luckily we could cancel the 2nd night but there was...

Liked: why not bar located next to the restaurant. Why not bar staff friendly and fun. Room was clean however smelt of that famous musty smell asia has in some accommodation. Bungalows were nice. Located on kantiang beach. Not the best beach ive seen. Disliked: absolutely nothing to do. All shops and restaurants close at 9pm or earlier. DO NOT...

We booked this hotel off the recommendation of the woman working at one of the little tourism centers on Phi Phi. She said the hotel was very nice with beachfront bungalows. She showed us pictures of our room in the brochure and they looked nice, so we prepaid, non-refundable, for 3 nights. When we arrived, nothing about this property looked...

Like many other reviewers, my husband and I were also duped by the Lanta lady on Phi Phi. We booked 3 nights and just about stayed two, we paid 1000 baht a night (for a sea view, which actually was a tree view) Rude staff, air con didn't work but leaked ants all over the bed!!

Nice and cute residence right on the beach and thr idea of sleeping in a bungalow only 10 metres from the sea might sound attractive but the staff did not clean once during our 3-night stay there. We had to ask for the bungalow to be cleaned and not sure whether the new towels were necessarily any cleaner! The bathroom...
