I had the pleasure of stubling across the Island of Lanta, or Koh Lanta, on a trip to Thailand. I thought I was in Paradise! The islanders were the most hopsitable you will find. While wandering the Island I came across Old Lanta, a quaint seaside town, and asked another traveller where to stay. She recommended Mango House. What a nice surprise. I was greeted with a warm smile and later had the chance to meet Duane, the owner. He was a fountain of information on where to go and what to see.
My room was built over the water on a pole house type building. The breeze off the water and the water lapping under my room was awesome. This place is a MUST stop. Forget tourist towns like Koh Samui or Phuket, if you want to get away and still have great service, hit Mango House!!!!!
- 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
