Lanta Sunny House

Reviewed 9 April 2013

My husband and I went to Thailand on our honeymoon and we decided to hop from one island to another. Tour agency in Ao Nang found this nice looking hotel with ok looking bungalows. It was February, busy season and last minute, so it wasn’t much available. As soon as we arrived we figured it’s not what we expected. Rooms are not clean, we found a few mouse droppings in the bathroom, beach is not too close, but the worst thing is staff. All of them are very rude, absolutely not pleasant, never smile, seems like they doing you a favor. We rented a bike from the owner, returning the bike was a worst memory. We forgot about the time and returned it later then we supposed to, the owner “very nice lady” yelled at us and charged double price, not ever considering our apologies. We were out there the next day, found a lot better place, where the owner let us stay in one of his best suites for the same place. By the way the bungalows where twice cheaper as well. I would not recommend Sunny House to anybody, awful place!

Room Tip: bad rooms, horrible staff

My partner and I had a very average stay at Sunny Lanta house made a whole lot better by their beautiful pool. Upon arrival, Wise the muslim owner is very lovely and friendly when she wants to be.

Our bungalow was quite nice, we paid 1000 baht per night for a double fan one, bit overpriced as most bungalows on Ko Lanta similar to this shouldnt be more than 400/500 baht but we paid extra purely for the pool. The room had warm water, balcony, mosquito net and a fan. The fan however was broken, the mozzy net didnt quite close and it felt quite hot and chlostrophobic. But it was still nice and the pool definitely made up for it. Very clean, not busy at all, jacuzzi sit down area, sun all day, elephant jets, it was really very lovely.

Unfortunately another negative point for Lanta Sunny was the food, which was absolutely awful. We ordered a club sandwich and a burger, whilst waiting for our food we heard a microwave beep which was the first worry. When it arrived, cannot quite explain but it tasted like plastic, services, micro'd, fatty food. The burger bun was tough to bite through, the meat was awful and the club sandwich cheese tasted like squeezy cheese. Very disappointed.... with a bit of love this place could be a gem as the rooms really are ok and fine to stay in and the pool is gorgeous.

We stayed in the aircon bungalow by the pool with our kids. A bit overpriced but we were here around christmas. Our family stayed in the fan huts without flushing toilet, quit sober. The restaurant serves good food at a good price. And the pool with sunbeds is attractive.
The owners should really do something with their sewing system. At raintime the whole place smells because the system overflows...

Just had a 3 night stay and really enjoyed the area. The room was average and good value for money in high season. Paid 1100baht with a non ac room with a hot shower. The pool area is lovely and a nice change from the beach. The food served in the hotel restaurant was very good and cheap too. The lady owner was a little stern however after a little time chatting was really friendly and spoke very good English. Motorbikes can be hired 200baht a day. Overall good value money and a good location on long beach.

We were initially pleased with Lanta Sunny Rooms...only 50 metres from Long Beach and relatively fair room prices. However, they are untrustworthy. We paid for 2 nights and they wrote a receipt. When we went to check out, they charged us double. We knew we had paid the full amount and demanded they checked their records. They claim they have no receipts for any customers staying there and therefore, no records of payment. In addition, they make huge commission on their ravel tickets. We paid 1,100 baht from Koh Lanta to Koh Phangan through them. After meeting various other travellers on the same route, we discovered they all paid 800 baht. We felt they exploited us in this way, deceivingly so, as they appear to be a sweet, family run business. Be wary and keep all dated receipts, should you choose to stay there.

We stayed here for 2 nights in April, and were happy with our decision. The hotel consists mainly of bungalows, well maintained with either fan or A/C depending on your budget/preference. The newly renovated swimming pool was beautiful, and the hotel is located approximately 5 mins (on foot) from the beach. Our only criticism was the colony of ants inhabiting our bathroom, but the staff quickly took care of that!
Overall, a nice clean family-run place, in a quiet location at reasonable prices.
