5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2014

The fabulous owners and staff made me feel very welcome, completely relaxed and very safe. There are no english language issues here with the Owners being Irish (yep - a long way from home) and Thai. All the staff also spoke great english. There was plenty of recommendations for what to do - and lots of lazing by the amazing pool! To watch the fabulous sunsets from the beach there are a couple of lovely relaxed bars only a 30m very safe walk away. There are restaurants (other the the great one in the resort) a short 5 min walk away. The rooms were spacious with beds that were supportive but soft and comfortable - thank goodness (very different to other places). All in all a fabulous place with wonderful staff that will make you very relaxed!

Bungalows are nice and pool area was nice as well. One of the reasons we chose this resort is we saw the swim up bar in the pictures but it was never stocked or open so we weren't able to use it. One complaint I would have is the prices of the drinks and food on site. Would have been nice to have a pool day and sit around having drinks and lunch there but we just found their menu quite expensive. All and all decent place.

Thank you for your review.

We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us. With regard to restaurant pricing, we feel that it is appropriate given the standard of fare and the level of service that we offer. It is easy to find very cheap food in Thailand at street side locations etc. The relative costs and quality of the environment must be taken into consideration just as they would be when making similar comparisons in western countries. We use the best ingredients we can find as well as serving quality brands in our drinks. Our food is served offering western proportions.....things that can not always be said for other establishments.

We do, however, appreciate your input and will try to ensure that we achieve the correct balance in terms of our food and beverage pricing.

We stayed here for 16 nights and could not be happier for our stay. The service here is on the top! Friendly staff, clean rooms and tasty food! The pool area is comftable and probably one of the most coolest on the island since it has a pool bar! Everything is really near and you can book lots of trips from the resort. I highly recommend to visit Lanta animal wellfare, which is close to this resort and donate money for the good cause! Or just visit Time for lime restaurant to taste the exellent tasting menu there, and the profits go to the animal wellfare as well! Anyhow this resort is one of the best in the island for this price levels!! We highly recommend this lovely and peaceful resort to everyone!

It is very satisfying for us to receive such a nice review from our longer staying guests as it shows us that the longer people stay at Soontreeya, the more they appreciate what it has to offer. We hope you will come and stay with us again soon.....maybe on your anniversary!

My partner and I had an amazing weekend at Soontreeya Lanta and wished we could of stayed longer. The room is beautiful, clean, spacious and has a remote control for the lights in your room!! The hotel is located at the end of long beach (rocky part of the beach) but walk up and you can do some great beach bar hopping or have a massage on the beach. The owner and staff are very friendly and organised our pick up from Sala Dan pier, our scooter hire and transfers back to Krabi airport. They are also able to arrange tours for you. I will highly recommend this hotel to others.

Location:
The hotel is about a 15 minute scooter/car ride from Sala Dan or around 20-25 minutes on a Tuk Tuk. It is at the bottom of Long Beach, and it is a 1 minute stroll down to the water where there is a bar and massage facilities. We spent an evening walking up Long Beach and stopped at a lovely place for dinner. We had no issues with traffic/street noise as it is well off the main road. Its a really nicely tucked away spot.

Room:
The room is good. If we had stayed longer I really would have wanted for drawer space, but hanging room was suitable in the wardrobe. Room has a safe, TV, great air con and the softest bed I've slept in. Shower facilities are good. Toilet is regular flushing but paper is placed in a basket.

Facilities:
There is a pool which is perfectly sized and has a nice presentation. There is a swim up bar but it is never manned. At the pool is the dining area. Breakfast was included for us and it was tasty, although any alteration to the menu was met with some difficulty. We had a main there also and both were quite tasty. They have a good range of drinks and if you order it they will bring it to you in the pool. There is a lot of green grassed area to kick a ball or hang out on and there is a small shelter if you wanted to do some stretches or something. There isn't much other entertainment on site, but there is plenty around the island so that didn't bother us.

Staff:
Conor and Sa are a lovely couple who live on, own and run the premises. They are so relaxed, helpful and full of local tricks to help you out on your stay. They can organise tours, vehicle hire and practically anything else you need during your stay. They make you feel at home and very comfortable. Conor was helpful before we got there by answering questions via the email

Room Tip: Bungalows number from 1-12, 1 being the closest to reception, pool etc

Sa and conar are a lovely couple who go out of their way to make you welcome. The rooms are set in a lovely quiet relaxing garden setting only a few steps from the beach and not far at all to local restaurants along the road. The rooms are lovely and clean with a great outdoor seating area. The pool is really pretty and so warm to swim in it was heaven. Breakfast was first class you got a menu choice which was better for us than a buffet. Staff all go our of their way to be pleasant. We had booked three nights but straight away wished we had booked more, sadly for us they were full so we had to move on. It has a great location and was so relaxing we were sorry to move. The bed was so nice and comfortable. And the air con worked In a quiet way. We hired a bike from conar for 250 bhrt. Per day well worth it to see more of the island and the roads and other drivers were good. We didn't eat in the restaurant but if breakfast is anything to go by it would be good. Perhaps take a torch

Room Tip: All rooms are nice

We stayed here in January and I can say that this is a fantastic little resort with a lovely location close to the beach.
The bungalows are well kept and in a lovely and peaceful garden location, the pool is a great place to relax around and the food at the restaurant is of a very top quality.
The staff are all really nice and helpful (will rent mopeds etc for ypu) and credit to Conor and Sa for helping to make it such a fantastic stay.
If I were to return to Ko Lanta I wouldn't hesitate to stay again and would recommend to anyone planning in visiting.
