“Living like the Thai”
Reviewed 28 December 2011

This is a very special location situated in the middle of the so called Old Village at the non-touristic east coast of Koh Lanta. We had the biggest bungalow which is very spacy with a huge veranda at the seaside with lots of privacy and incredible views. For those who can't stand the noise of the sea under your guesthouse standing on poles (or other noises early at morning from locals and/or from neighbors throughout the day) maybe not advisable because the house has openings everywhere under the ceiling for ventilation which even allows birds and innocent bats to fly through. We got used to that and liked it actually. And no need for airco because of this ventilation at all!

Tan the hostess is extremely friendly and helpful although we had some service problems at the start which were solved soon. And ask and you will always be helped in the best way. It is a pity that we were not able to meet Duane the owner (and partner of Tan) who was away for business all the time.

We stayed at Mango House in Feb 2010 and it was wonderful. Staff was so accommodating..we booked for a couple of night and wanted to stay for a week and Dwayne and his staff managed to find us rooms, even though it was during Festival. As for lack of AC? you are over the water..what do you even need AC for, you complainers? Must be from Europe...nothing is every good enough for you!! It's a fabulouse place and we are excited to be coming back this winter...just hope that they have space for us...the best place on Koh Lanta!!! Lynn and Murray

This is a wonderful place to stay, as it embodies what a trip to Thailand should be about: great Thai people (friendly, great service, no hassles), fantastic ocean (views + sleeping on top of the water!), and a lovely cultural Thai town -- best Thai food around located within walking distance. it also has just the right amount of western influence: Aussie Burgers and western breakfasts.

My husband and I stayed at the Mango House for 2+ weeks and had an absolutely amazing time! I loved how the water came under the house during high tide. The place was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The highlight of the house is the porch over the water with views of the outer islands. If you get up early you can catch a beautiful sunrise. We had a shared balcony, which turned out to be great because met some wonderful people during our stay. We stayed in a unit without aircon, but even thought the temp was in the 80's & 90's (F) we were never uncomfortable because of the constant sea breeze and many provided fans.

This is a great place to stay if you want to be away from the crowds on the other side of the island. This is definitely not the place to stay if you want to party into the night on the beach. Old town closes up pretty early and is very quiet at night. We rented a motorbike and could easily go to any of the beaches around the island in 20 min. The old town has some of the best and cheapest food that we had on the island. The Mango house staff is very nice and accommodating. Anything we needed they were able to provide. One of our first nights there, a thai staff members took us to the local Buddhist temple to see a ceremony. Also, the food at the Mango House restaurant is very good.

The owner, Duane, is great and very friendly. He even took us out one night where we met many local thais and expats. The Mango House is the perfect if you want a unique Thai island experience. The place is great, but it was the people that really made the experience special.

I have to say after reading the previous review i cannot believe that person is talking about the same place i stayed at. We stayed there mid December last year and i have nothing but treasured memories. The accommodation was clean and in the most romantic and peaceful setting, We ate our evening meal each night overlooking the sea in complete peace. The food was high quality and gorgeous. My son ate enormous banana pancakes each morning that he still makes reference to. The main thing about Mango House though was how friendly all the staff were and how out of there way everyone went to make us feel welcome. On one occasion we had a small emergency and the staff took me and my son on bikes to help. Not to mention the extra mile they went with everything for us and all without asking. I cannot recommend this place highly enough.
