I have just returned from a 17 day trip around Thailand with my wife and my parents, we are in our mid 30's and parents mid 60's. We stayed at Soontreeya from 17Dec for 3 days. It was a great retreat after 2 days in Bangkok and a plane and train journey. Conor & Sai were great hosts from the start! We arrived a few hours late in the evening, due to delays at the ferry. Sai booked us in promptly and Conor came and welcomed us which I thought was great, made my parents feel really relaxed. I have been to Koh Lanta before and could not get in the place we stayed previously as it was over booked. How glad we're we that we found Soontreeya after looking at the places to stay on TA. The beds are the most comfiest i have ever lied on! The place is great to relax and rewind, and the staff keep the place very clean and tidy. The food is very good also! Try the beef Penang and chicken satay, best food we had on Lanta. Sai and Conor also helped us to get to our next island, Koh Yao Yai, only a couple of boats run to Yai as it is a bit more remote. Conor could of organised us a taxi to the pier to get the speedboat but wanted to make sure we got there, so drove us himself at a cheaper price! Sai also booked our boat tickets, Conor drove us to Ao Nang and liaised with the boat company and left us ready to board. Both Conor and Sai deserve 10/10, if you are wondering whether to book, do it! You will not be dissappointed! We will defo return, the Gilligans, Manchester.

I've stayed in many guesthouses, hostels, and hotels around Thailand, and this easily has the most comfortable bed of them all! It's a quiet place, with only 12 bungalows. The owners are extremely friendly and are always ensuring that you're having a positive stay. The pool is clear and clean, and the walk to the beach is quite short. The complimentary breakfast was also delicious. I highly recommend this for an island getaway!

stayed here for one week with my boyfriend. It's a place where you get close with the staff and the owners.
the beds are really soft, so if you like that I would choose this place..thailand is famous for their hard beds ;)

I gladly recommend this place for people that wants some quiet holiday as family or couples.

Room Tip: room 8-12 to get a little bit further away from reception, restaurant and pool!

My friend and I just came back from a fantastic 10 day stay here. The owners Conor and Sai were great; very friendly, very helpful as indeed were all the staff. The place has recently been renovated to a very high standard. The bungalows were large, exceptionally light and clean and everything worked well; shower, air con, TV, fridge, Wifi etc etc. Lovely clean pool and eating/bar area. Huge breakfasts! Great bar! I would highly recommend it and want to go back right now.

I stayed at the Soontreeya in Lanta for 4 nights, and I can only say good and positive things about it. It is located just 100 m from the beach and there are plenty of restaurants and bars close by, although the hotel restaurant offers a variety of tasty Thai dishes at a competitive price, and comes also highly recommended.

The hotel is made up of 12 rooms, each with own bathroom (shower), AC, TV, and the most amazing king size bed ever. The rooms are clean, neat, comfortable and tastefully decorated. The surrounding garden is a pretty sight, and the pool is relaxing. Breakfast is good and well-prepared.

A big thank you goes to the owners who are always ready to greet you with a big smile on their faces, and to the staff who are friendly and helpful.

My friend and I had a wonderful experience with Conor and his family at Soontreeya. The bungalow was spacious, clean and filled with all the essentials (fresh towels, bottled water etc). Food on site was fantastic and within short walking distance there were a number of beach bars and an assortment of other restaurants.

My only criticism... we couldn't stay longer.

Stayed 5 nights. Soontreeya has only 12rooms. Every 2 rooms form a stone bungalow but have their own terrace in front with 2chiars and a table and a tap to clean your feet. Evereything is renovated in 2013 so it looks all new and fresh. Big room with lost of sockets, big bathroom and big and nice bed. Big swimmingpool with sunbeds, despite the resorts was during our stay fully booked it was never crowded in the restaurant or pool, so very relaxing. The breakfast is very nice because you could just order what you wan't (don't like egg every morning, so they had lovely slices of bread with Nutella and Peanutbutter instead for us :-) also tried the cocktails and they were delicious. Note: you can see the sea from the resort but its not seefront, the beach is not nice anyway because lots of trash and rocks if you want to go lay on the beach you probably want to rent a motorbike and drive to the nicer beaches. The swimmingpool makes it no big deal. Must stay the owners Irish-Thai couple are very thoughtful and helped us wonderfull in arranging a private fishing/snorkeltrip, rent a motorbike and ferrytickets to Ko Phi Phi

Room Tip: From the outside all 12rooms looked like the same size and interior and have same view.
