Me and my partner stayed at Mango House villas and we enjoyed our weekend tremendously. The 180 degree view from our villa was amazing. The sunrise was truly spectacular.
Old Town is a great location for exploring Thai culture. There are several good Thai restaurants and coffee shops in town. It's also a great step-off point for exploring the local islands--next time we will plan to stay longer so we have time to go boating.
The sandy beaches are on the other side of the island, where all the tourists are. We were quite happy to escape the crowds.

- Welcome to Mango Houses – a collection of authentic, Chinese-style wooden pole houses that have been converted into stylish, over-the-sea villas and suites. Each of these vacation home rentals is located directly on the ocean in an old Chinese fishing village named Lanta Old Town on Ko Lanta Island in Krabi, Thailand.Lanta Old Town is located on the nature-rich, southeast coast of Koh Lanta, only 15 minutes away from the beaches and tourist areas on the west coast — yet far enough to allow the village to retain its traditional culture and charm. Mango House is also famous for its quality, western-style food, coffees and wines. ... more less
