Lanta Sunny House
Ranked #55 of 240 Speciality Lodging in Ko Lanta
Reviewed 17 January 2011

Stayed for a week, bungalows plain but clean, bed comfortable. Set in a big garden (used to be a cashew nut orchard). The girls that run Sunny are sweet and their kids are cute, especially Bo. Food good too.

Good place for families and couples.

2 mins walk to the beach and 2 mins to Pra Ae Village.

I loved this easy-going place. If you want to be pampered at double the cost, go next door to Lanta Castaway. But if you don't mind a cold shower, Lanta Sunny bungalows offer everything you really need. Their fleet of motorbikes is dependable and cheap to rent, and the restaurant is good and a great place to meet people. You can't hear the surf from the bungalows, but the beach is just a 2 to 4-minute walk away.

500 baht during high season for a double-bed bungalow with fan and bathroom. Lots of families, couples, friends and solo travelers staying there.

This is a really nice little budget place run by a several (many!) sisters, some don't speak much English but they were good fun. Rooms good for the price, I had a huge double bed. Good food, all the usual Thai and western, plus some nice Indian dishes. ... It's about 100 metres from Long Beach and 2 minutes from Pra Ae village, which is small but has rest.-shops-bars-ATMs etc...... Long Beach really is long and even in high season seemed deserted. Beach bars, massage etc. Great sunsets...Good find.

Well.... I booked with Sawadee ,in February : large fan room for $ 795bht. Paid $900.00 bht deposit and the following month i was asked several times to pay the balance and i thought this was not the way sawadee operates I foolishly payed a total of $3000 bht in advance.
My arrival at Ko Lanta a smelly amount of garbage everywhere on the port and vicinities,.There were lot's of agents hassling to take to the hotels and offering free rides.
Well there were muslin women from the 'Sunny Lanta House'
I ask her how much for the large fan room ,she told me $300.bht! Can you believe I paid 2 months before same room more than double! Anyway I told her i had already booked and I just need a ride. she decline ,saying was only for last minute guests!
Well I got a Tuck-Tuck type ( paid 150bht)and went to the so CALLED "SUNNY LANTA HOUSE". Once there I could not believe the real dump it was! when I ask the reception about how come I was paying more then double they suddenly did not speak English. I believe no one spoke!
Anyway I got my room , a cabana full mosquitoes ,a big rat welcome us, there were big gaps on the floor and wall the mosquito net was full of wholes! I tried to overlook my unfortunate luck and walk to the beach. What a damp near a sewage lot's garbage around Not nice beach at all! the walk to the beach is a walk way behind some garbage and the grounds of this disgusting place is just horrible! I decide to look for another hotel near by and moved 2 hours after arriving! I was furious but try to ride my anger and ask for a refund . they looked at me like I was craze and laughed,!No one said a word , they just could not care...and pretend they did not understand me( maybe they did) they were very unfriendly , rude and I felt really not safe ......
I'm glad i move away to a better place for $1100bht with breakfast swimming pool ,nice room and nice garden in the same beach "long Beach".
Conclusion: I sent an e-mail to sawadee and they were surprise and promised to investigate and maybe not represent this dreadful damp! So they send me a full refund! I did not expect anything I thought my $100US was lost ......

I was offered a place in Sunny House by one of the agents that meets people off the ferry with a book of pictures. They offer free transportation to the resort which is great. They have a range of huts availble from bamboo (200 Baht), medium (300 Baht), medium with fan, mosquito net, separate bathroom (400 Baht) up to aircon chalets. Sunny is located a 1 minute walk from the beach (the walk is quite dark at night.)

The accommodation itself is fine, theres internet on-site (1 Baht pm) and 6 PC's. Theres also a lovely little restaurant and they also have a telly and selection DVD's so you watch some of theirs or your own. Theres no alcohol available but youre free to buy your own and consume it there. They also offer laundry service and transport into town.

So the location and huts themselves are good, but my one big gripe would be the staff. Only 1 girl spoke good English and the rest of the staff frequently laughed in my face or with each other when I tried to make enquiries about diving, ferries etc. Very very unprofessional and at times extremely rude.

So if you're looking for somewhere cheap, near the beach and with good bars and restaurants nearby then go for it, as long as you dont mind being ridiculed or laughed at if you need information or help from the staff.
