“Fabulous!”
Reviewed 3 March 2012

If you don't mind not being right on the beach (or if you want a little variation in where you stay while on Ko Lanta), I highly recommend this clean and quiet place just a short 5 minute walk to the beach. We loved this place, and Yuko, the owner of the place is super nice and happy to help you book anything you want, such as a scooter, which was clutch for getting out and exploring Ko Lanta!

This place only has maybe 4 or 5 rooms, which are individually built (so you don't share a wall with any one else). During high season, she also makes the largest "room" available, and this is pretty much a house that you have all to yourself--perfect for families or large groups of travelers. It has its own little pool, communal DVD library, and even a laptop you can borrow for the day (to upload photos for example). Everything was meticulously clean and the shrubs were well-manicured.

Our room was very well decorated, comfortable, clean, had a DVD player, and had air conditioning. This was such a welcome place to go to after staying at a different place without air conditioning on one of the hottest days of the year.

This was the second year running we have stayed at Escape Cabins and it was enjoyable as the first. Yuko is a great host and will help with any activity you want. We stayed in the cozy bungalow which is small but big enough for two people, the rooms are very clean and the rest of the staff always have a smile on their face.
Thanks again Yuko, maybe we will visit again.

He came from America, I came from Australia. A chance encounter turned into a planned adventure and Yuko's Escape Cabins made it all heavenly. Even before we arrived Yuko was so helpful with all our enquiries and this spirit continued throughout our romantic stay. From ideas on local food to arranging transportation our early morning requests were met with warm and friendly embrace. We were so keen to stay there that we were ok with two room changes during our week's stay - all three rooms were clean and chic and the Zen room was a perfect ending to a Zen-like encounter. Our stay was a wonderful adventure and the real beginning to our love, so we hold it as a special place in our hearts. Yuko was delightful and by the end of the stay we felt like we were leaving a friend. Great value...and a place we will be sure to return to one day!

Room Tip: The Zen room is lovely for a couple - spacious with kitchen, dining nook and a verandah.

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for 5 nights,the first 5 days of our 1month visit to Thailand.
It is one of the best places ive stayed in for this money.I had been to 4 trips to Thailand. All in all 8 months. We stayed in a Comfort Bungalow and had everything we needed.

I loved the garden and specially the pool. The place is quiet and clean. The lady who cleaned the room was really friendley and always had a smile.
We wanted to extend our stay but it was fully booked. Yuko,the owner is really sweet.
Yuko answers any questions that you have and arrange transports.

There is a short stroll to the beach,with a nice restaurant just down the road to the mainroad.

We coming back next year...See you then Yuko.

We stayed in one of the Comfort rooms for two weeks recently, and really can't fault the place. If you want peace and quiet, beautifully maintained surroundings and one of the cleanest rooms I've seen, then this is the place for you. Yuko is a lovely host and was very helpful with any questions we had. Our room was spacious, clean and cool, it was lovely to come back from the beach to take a dip in the pool. The cabins are in a quiet area of Long beach although there are 3 Thai and one western restaurants just as you come on to the main road. The beach is about a five minute walk away, and the busy end of Long beach (more bars & restaurants) is about 20 minutes walk along the main road, or a couple of minutes in a tuk-tuk.

The bed is one of the most comfortable I have slept in outside of my own! It was also nice to have a fridge and tea/coffee facilities, so you didn't have to rush out in the morning for the first coffee fix of the day!

I would recommend Escape Cabins to all travellers wanting to relax, being in the quiet area was a bonus for us, but the busier parts are only a few minutes away in a tuk-tuk. Saladan was about 5-7 minutes away in a tuk-tuk and if you like your seafood, a visit to Saladan to eat in the stilted restaurants on the pier is a must.

One other little tip would be, if you like a more relaxed area on the beach is to turn left when you reach the beach and head up to a shack called Focus. The staff were amazing, food was great and we had the best massages there. It's about a 15 minute walk once you are on the beach, but everyone needs that after tucking into lots of Thai food!!

I have to say that we truly loved this place. We stayed 4 nights in the Cozy and it was great. We had the best sleep there that we had in 4 weeks of traveling.

The whole place is so peaceful you truly appreciate the island.

Yuko is the best host!!! She can book any tour for you, arrange your transport, rent a scooter..whatever you need. The housekeeper was also very nice to us!

It's great to have a pool after spending the day under the scorching sun!

It's a short walk away from the beach and truly, we prefered that to being right on the beach because it's a much nicer setting and you would miss out on the peacefulness if it were elsewhere.

Also, there are great restaurants minutes away. The Tavern serves western food, the thai place right across the street (Kristana I believe) has AMAZING food..you must try it. We ate there almost every night.

There is also a mini market right by the main road if you should need anything. Drinks, snacks, or aloe vera for a sunburn.

Overall, we loved this place!!!!!!!!!! And we whole heartedly recommend it! :)

This superb accommodation lived up to everything written about it and more. The owner Yuko is an excellent host where every request was attended to within minutes. The accommodation itself was perfect for a young family and the pool much used. Cleaning was inclusive and laundry services cheap. Although there were self catering facilities, we only used this for breakfast given the number of good and cheap restaurants within walking distance.

The beach was only a five minuted walk and clearly the best strip on Long Beach. Saladan was only a ten minute tuk tuk ride away. Yuko is able to book any trip you wish to take and at the best prices going. All bookings we made lived up to expectations. we only wished we stayed longer than 11 nights. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: if you have a young family then go for the main cottage.
