We were at this place for the 3rd time and as always it was a great stay with friends. Right on the beach and breezy bungalows. Great food and valueable drinks provided. Thanks to Kun, Lab and Bao for everything. See you soon my friends...

Our stay at the fisherman’s cottage was just perfect! Super friendly stuff, awesome food, clean cottages with a nice view and direct access to the beach. Enjoy the sunset while swingen right an the beach. You can directly rent a motorbike and explore beautiful Koh Lanta. They help you with just everything. Highly recommend to stay at this lovely place!

I spent a lovely 3 nights at Fishermans Cottage late february. The pictures available did not do it justice. Coming from the main road - it all really looks like nothing but from the moment you step onto their little slice of the Beach its perfect. If you are looking for a resort, this is not for you. If you are looking for charming rustic little bungalows, lovely welcoming staff, a nice garden , good simple food at an affordable price- this is your spot! We ( 3 of us) all took our own bungalows, mine was right on the lawn with sea view ( hammock provided ) across from the bar/restaurant. The rooms were spare , concrete with little private open air bathrooms in back with showers. Its very simple and cute - but we were all happy. If you are very early to bed- i might recommend getting one further from the bar as they play music till maybe 11 ish - didn't bother me at all. They have a nice simple tab system for residence at the bar - so you just pay up upon checkout. The staff are lovely and are around all day if you need a beer, but they basically leave you to chill. They have a wood platform under a large tree on the beach which is great for laying in the shade ( much needed on our time there) its not that big so you do end up meeting some of the other guests - which we enjoyed. This beach is very quiet we found (to our liking ) - also to note- because of the reef? at this beach its only really possible to swim around high tide maybe 3 or 4 hours- . I would LOVE to go back

Pros • Kun and Lap were very accommodating and work very hard to help plan events • Kun pays for excursions he coordinates for you then adds it to the check at discharge, wonderful to have a single bill at the end if the trip rather than lots of little expenses throughout the trip • Kun arranged for transport to and from Krabi-no hassle • Food was really good, try the No Name! • Kun is Eco focused, he will loan you a canvas bag for your stay to reduce plastic bags, also he doesn’t use plastic straws at the bar (if you really need a straw, he has bamboo straws for 40 baht that you can reuse…consider bringing these home as eco friendly-easy to pack souvenirs) • Really good use of space in the fun funky concrete bungalows, the shelf behind the bed and along one side was great for storing stuff. There are outlets at either side of the head of the bed, great to plug in a laptop a with a USB fan that you can take into the mosquito netting with you. • Huge (bigger than king sized) bed. • Mosquito net in great condition (remember to lower it in the afternoon though, otherwise you trap the buggies in with you) Cons • No air-conditioning, nights are hot. They provide a fan, but the mosquito netting blocks some of the wind. If you are from a cooler area or sleep hot this may be a show stopper for you. • No hot water heater. Expect cold showers. • No drinking water provided. This is the only hotel out of the 13 we’ve stayed at in Thailand that doesn’t provide daily drinking water. Kun is worried about eco issues, but by not providing water, we had to buy bottled water…a 5 gallon jug of drinking water that we can use to fill our water bottles would have been greatly appreciated • No maid service (none). Really not too big a deal except for the septic issue. If you expect me to throw my used toilet paper away rather than in the toilet, occasional removal of the garbage next to the toilet would be greatly appreciated. • Sparse linens. 1 flat sheet, 2 towels, and pillowcases were all that are offered. No hand towel, no rag, no other bed linens. With no maid service they get pretty stinky…we did figure out that any of the guys will exchange them if you ask (they will also take a full garbage bag). • No soap (or any other toiletries) provided. • Lap is a smoker and thinks nothing of lighting up and sitting down to visit. Sweet guy, but cigarette smoke is awful. • Bugs in the bungalow...bungalows open at the top & bathroom mean bugs get in (not just mosquitoes, but ridiculously large spiders and centipedes. Considerations • Bring (or buy) beach towels…you only get 2 towels for your bungalow so you won’t have anything for the beach. • Bring flashlights!!!!! Bugs WILL get in. Had several centipedes and one monster spider in the room…don’t want to step on that stuff bare footed in the dark!!! • Consider small USB fans with long enough cords that you can bring into the mosquito net with you. • ALL beds in Thailand are hard as rocks. If you have a bad back, consider bringing a camp mattress to soften beds. • You might think closer to the beach is better, but closer to the beach means closer to the bar. Bar usually closes around 11:00, so if you want to go to bed before that, you might experience some loud bar revelry that keeps you awake. Extra Info: • The 7-11 close to the hotel has great coffee and espresso drinks at a fraction of the cost of anywhere along the beach. • Amorn at Summer Leaf Lanta Massage (across from 7-11) is a FABULOUS massage therapist, the best out of all the massages I got in Thailand, give her a try. Thai oil was well worth the $$...and consider a 90 minute rather than 60...you will be glad you did!
