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.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to Mango Houses – a collection of authentic, Chinese-style wooden pole houses that have been converted into stylish, over-the-sea villas and suites. Each of these vacation home rentals is located directly on the ocean in an old Chinese fishing village named Lanta Old Town on Ko Lanta Island in Krabi, Thailand.Lanta Old Town is located on the nature-rich, southeast coast of Koh Lanta, only 15 minutes away from the beaches and tourist areas on the west coast — yet far enough to allow the village to retain its traditional culture and charm. Mango House is also famous for its quality, western-style food, coffees and wines. ... more less
