“Perfect for chillout and sunsets”
Reviewed 17 February 2014 via mobile

We stayed for 5 nights after reading other reviews and they were all right in it being absolutely perfect to relax and enjoy Thailand the way it should be. Whole place was spotlessly clean, all pretty new with lovely rooms. Pool was awsome, especially sitting in it having a beer at the pool bar. Only 50m walk to the beach where you could watch perfect sunsets with cocktails in beach bars and wander down the beach to eat at other restaurants for a change. Saying that, the restaurant there was the best food we had on Lanta for sure. Can't think of any cons tbh!
The owner is Irish and really friendly, giving great advice on anything needed.

We delighted you enjoyed your stay with us. The diving is something that Koh Lanta does very well and we're glad that our recommendation worked out so well for you.

My partner and I stayed here for 4 nights in January. And like nearly every other reviewer, we loved it. Conor and Sai are perfect hosts who make every effort to ensure your stay is comfortable and relaxing. The rooms are spacious, the air conditioning worked a treat and each bungalow has a small front deck from which you can take in the beautiful garden surroundings. It is located at the quiet end of Long Beach, which suited us fine. There are enough dining options nearby (including the resort restaurant which is very good; as is the Moonwalk Restaurant and Bar 5 mins along the beach) or you can hire a scooter and explore options further afield. Being a small island, Koh Lanta’s traffic is not too threatening so scooter hire is highly recommended. And let Conor and Sai arrange it for you. Sure, it might cost a couple of dollars extra, but for simplicity and reliability, highly worth it.

Thank you Conor and Sai. We sincerely hope it isn’t too long before we see you again.

It's great to get such a positive review from experienced travellers. We are only in our first season and the feedback is very important to us. You seemed to be very relaxed and we get a lot of satisfaction from seeing guests make the most of Soontreeya and the area. Hope to see you again in the near future.

As a frequent return traveller to Koh Lanta this has to be one, if not the nicest and value for money resort I have stayed at. Great location being only one minutes walk from Long beach. Super friendly staff and lovely gardens are key things this resort offers. I can also highly recomend trying out the "everything burger" at the restaurant, you won't be disappointed ................

We have travelled to ko lanta before and stayed near the national park, which was lovely but remote ...this time we wanted to stay near the town and I think we picked well.

Soontreeya is a small resort with on site restaurant, pool and 12 villas. Conor and Sai were great, organising everything we needed, restaurant bookings, day trips and ferry return trips.

The villas are clean, tidy and lots of room for 2 people- the semi outdoor bathroom and air con was wonderful. The food on site was great with a good choice of local and western dishes- the "everything burger"for 350 baht was outstanding, also try the massaman curry.

While at Soontreeya we enjoyed actives such as
diving
swimming at long beach
massages at Don ya spa (on the main road- $11 aus for 1 hour and they have aircon)
4island trip
Quad biking ( becareful, i had a little accident and hurt myself)
Just chilling by the pool.

Conor and Sai, thanks for a sensational time and best of luck with the business... You are doing a super job and we hope to be back soon!!!

You guys certainly packed everything in during your stay. It's great to see guests making the most of what Koh Lanta has to offer. Your review is much appreciated and hopefully we will see you again at Soontreeya in the not too distant future. Hope you're not baking in the heat down in Oz!

My wife and I stayed on Koh Lanta for 6 nights during our 2 week honeymoon and Soontreeya was more than we could ever asked for. It is in such a perfect spot at the end of Long Beach - 2 minute walk to get a massage and the Korner Bar or Reggae Bar if you are looking for late evening fun and drinking, 5 minute walk to some great restaurants and hangouts on the beach, and a 5 minute walk to the main road with some great restaurants and bars (including Red Snapper and the Irish Embassy). The grounds are very clean and nice as is the pool and bar area. The fish meal I had at the bar was one of the best I had during my entire two weeks throughout Thailand. All the rooms were recently renovated and they are very nice, clean, and well maintained. The beds are incredibly soft and comfy and my wife said that it is probably the comfiest she has ever slept on. To top everything off, Conor and Sa are the best and we wholeheartedly consider them our friends after our stay. They will help set up a trip, tour, rental, etc. for you and go out of their way to make sure you are happy and comfortable. We recommend Soontreeya to any type of traveller looking for a great time in Koh Lanta. We will return soon and I just hope Sa is ready for a rematch in pool :)

What a great review. We really enjoyed your company and it's great to hear that you made the most of what Koh Lanta has to offer. I don't think it will be too long before we meet up again whether it's here at Soontreeya. Chicago or even Ireland. Best of luck in the future to you both....you deserve it. Thanks again.

We enjoyed our stay at Soontreya and meeting Conor and Sai. We felt very welcome and it was nice to feel part of their family. The room we had was very clean, it had a TV and a fridge and the bathroom was very clean and looked like it had been updated recently. Breakfast was also very nice. The beach is only a few minutes walk and we used the bar at the bottom of the road which is also very friendly. I felt the price we paid was fair, although the price does go up in peak season. I would stay at Soontreya again and would like to thanks Conor and Sai for such a comfortable stay - hello to the lovely cats!

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.
