The place itself is reasonably nice, quite rustic and not necessarily luxury. Quite far from the beach though and you have to fork out quite a bit to get private transport to the other side of the island. Nice if you wanna get away from the standard tourist accommodations though. The owner in our experience is a bit blunt and absent, except when it comes to the payment seems very impatient about that. Well, Fair enough. One more thing that doesn't seem to be very obvious from the website: only 1 bedroom has air-conditioning ! Not really what we expected. Wifi was not working either, owner was not around to report. Loved the hammock on the deck. Wouldn't go back though. After 2 nights we changed our accommodation to a lovely hotel at the other side of the island. Not our thing.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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
