Koh Lanta is a “very laid back", natural island that has not been too spoilt yet! Hire our neighbor's long tail boat and spend an incredible day snorkeling around deserted islands, buy your fish from a local fisherman for a beach barbecue.
Visit the mysterious mangroves with all its wild life, monkeys, buzzards and all sorts of wild orchids.
Eat delicious cheap food at the numerous surrounding village restaurants.
Take a trip to the West coast, just 15 minutes away by car or scooter , long sandy beaches, restaurants , hotels and bars, a total contrast to the East coast.
To access Lanta you can take a boat from Phuket or Krabi, ( 2 or 4 hours), or by road with the minibus; this option takes more time as you have two ferries to take.
There are ATM machines everywhere, also car and scooter hire, (which is a must to visit), the local “Tuk Tuks" are dangerous and you have to push them up hills! When driving in Thailand you have no priority, just give way!
I hope I have given you an idea of the island and a desire to come.
Nothing is off limits within reason, you can even smoke on deck!
Interaction with Guests
You will be in touch with Charlotte who lives on the island on the West coast. She will answer all your questions, arrange keys upon arrival and be on call if you have any problems.
They all go to bed early so you are alone on deck with the most incredible sky of stars, and not a noise.
In March you have the' Lanta Lanta Festival' when the whole island turns out to party, eat and drink. There are many musical events, Thai and European, and it is great fun to meet the local people.
There are 'Tuk tuks', a sort of carriage constructed on a motor scooter, very unbalanced and risky.
If you know how to ride a scooter , this is the best bet! It is not expensive, but drive with caution, there are many obstacles, ducks, chickens, children, tourists, even elephants, and lots of holes!
