Originally booked 6 nights, stayed 21! Conner and Sa and there staff were brilliant, very accommodating, helpful, always welcomed with a smile. Food excellent, rooms brilliant and a bed I would love to take home. Would recommend Soontreeya to singles, couples and families. Definitely a 5 star resort. All the jolly!

If like us, you have been seduced by the pictures for this hotel, think twice. The swimming pool is much smaller than it looks and pretty dirty and the rooms even though modern are not very functional. The access to the beach is not very easy or as close as told.
The shower is right in the middle of the bathroom with no separation with the rest (so if one takes a shower, the bathroom is flooded which ca be annoying) and there is no room to put your stuff (tooth brush, cream, etc) or to hang up wet towels. Finally, I got sick from the A/C in this room because it is turned right on the bed and blows icy air in your face all night long.

The personnel was very nice and helpful. We rented motorbikes from them and they also offered to make our trip arrangements. The breakfast is stunning. It's the only place in Thailand where I have had such great scrambled eggs.

Room Tip: Don't take room 1, it's the room right next to the parking lot and you might be woken up by...

Thank you for your review.
Your review contains a number of ‘firsts’ for us. It is the first time a guest has complained about the size of the swimming pool as well as describing it as ‘dirty’. It is also the first time our air conditioning is said to have been too cold.
Our pool is over 125m sq and we have just twelve rooms. If anything it is considered to be out of proportion but it means that the pool area is never too busy, even in peak season. It is one of the largest pools in the area. We employ a highly regarded swimming pool contractor who clean and maintain it every morning. In tropical climates rain can leave algae in pools which can make the water less clear than normal. This is not ‘dirt’ and is perfectly safe to swim in. When it does occur, we set up an external filtration system to clear it. This generally takes up to 24 hours. At no stage has our pool been anything other than slightly cloudy.
We reject the suggestion that our air conditioning made you ill. In any event there are temperature and directional controls on the unit which can be adjusted. If you were unable to do this yourself, a quick mention to reception would have solved the problem straight away but you chose to bring it up on Tripadvisor instead!
We do not accept your view that we are somehow trying to deceive our guests in to believing that our resort is better than it is, quite the opposite, in fact. Our approach is to under-promise and over-deliver to our guests. There are many photographs of our pool and resort taken by ourselves and our guests that, we are confident, show the resort as it is. Many of our guests have mentioned this to us.
We describe ourselves as a garden resort close to the sea. All of our descriptions of proximity to beaches bars, restaurants and other amenities are accurate and to suggest otherwise is incorrect.
You do make some minor points which we will take on board. This is our first season and we are striving to improve our service and facilities.
We are glad you enjoyed the breakfast and have passed on your compliments to our staff.

We arrived here after partying in phi phi island and couldn't ask for better!! The Irish owner Conor was fab,so friendly and anything we wanted to know we asked him, he let us have his bike for the day where we drove to all the other beaches he recommended, the national park and old town which was amazing! This was the only place we had washing done and it was done perfect although our whites weren't quite whites after but who cares! The room was amazing and the food in the restaurant was lovely the hotel was set up perfect and the bed!!! The best bed I have ever slept in I was asleep by 8pm the first night the bed is heaven!
Lovely hotel recommended to all!!!!

Room Tip: Bungalow number one was beautiful!

We have been for 2 nights in Soontreeya Lanta in February 14. The communication via Email before arrival with Connor was very friendly and very quick responding. He organised us the transfer from Saladan to Soontreeya Lanta. Everything was very smooth from the very beginning of our arrival. Connor and Sa has welcomed us so friendly from the first minute of our arrival.
The rooms are fantastic, very nice decorated with all the details for it. The bed is very comfy and i had my best 2 nights sleeps during our 4 weeks travel in Thailand :-)
The pool is very clean and very nice set up just next to the restaurant. For a nice swim on the beach you can walk a little a long side of long beach. It has less rocks, then in front of the resort side it self.

Conor and Sa are so very friendly and the work in a profesional way in their resort. They help with anything you need. They were assisting us to book the ferry tickets onto Koh Jum and the transfer again.

The restaurant is very cozy too and has a good variety in the menu card.

Since they also have a very cute little daughter it's also very child friendly and perfect for famlies.

We felt very comfortable during our stay with them and were sad to leave. We hope to come back and stay next time longer. If you travel during high season, it's good if you book early.
We were lucky to get a room for our 2 nights stay :-)

Thank you Conor and Sa again for a great stay in Koh Lanta and hope we'll see you all again.

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!
