I'm a tall Swede who got lost on a trip to a tropical island in Southeast Asia, some six years ago. Have yet to find my way back to the cold.
The Studio was perfect for us, simple and stylish, with some nice extra details and mod-cons. We loved having meals sat outside the studio overlooking the lush woodland and the sea in the distance. Many special evenings were spent watching the sunset from the beautiful pool. The pool area and the studio were kept spotlessly clean. The house location is a little away from the busier parts of the island, which was a plus for us, it was lovely and peaceful but within 5 minutes on a scooter you were on the main road able to choose from many great restaurants the island has to offer.
A massive thank you to Eric and Nyang for making our holiday to Ko Lanta so special, they were very hospitable hosts and incredibly helpful by arranging our transfers to and from Krabi, and also our scooter hire. They were always contactable if we needed anything at all (which was much appreciated when my scooter wouldn't start one day!). They also recommended some of the best beaches and restaurants (personal favorites of ours, Sonya's and diamond Cliff).
I wouldn't hesitate recommending this place to anyone, Ko Lanta is beautiful, and Eric and Nyang's studio is an incredible place to enjoy it from. We will hopefully return for another holiday.

Great place! Nice studio located in a quiet part of the island but conveniently close to restaurants and beaches if you rent a scooter. Eric and Nyang are both friendly and helped us arrange a tour and recommended restaurants. We would definitely stay again if we return to Lanta.
To put it in a nutshell: AWESOME.
The stay at the guest studio at Lanta was the highlight at our Thailand trip. After a wild taxi ride up the hill we were quite nervous because of the situation of the accomodation. But as we noticed the gorgious view, we realized that we made the right decision in booking this accomodation. The scooter, which Eric arranged for us, was necessary during our stay and helped us to be flexible and mobile and so the distance between the guest studio and the restaurants or the beaches was absolutely no problem. Even if we didn't want to go out, the pool offered us a great possibility to spend some relaxing and calm hours at the accomodation.
The studio itself is spacious enough for two persons, very clean and well equiped. We really liked it to buy some fresh fruits and vegetable and enjoy our cooked meal outside with a view over the beauty of nature.
Apart from the nice guest studio we really appreciated Eric as a helpful and friendly host. He helped us by answering all our questions, booking a great snorkeling trip at Koh Rok, arranging a scooter and a transfer to the pier and welcoming us with some fresh water and fruits. All in all, we really recommend the guest studio and we hope that we'll come back one day.
It was great.
The room was a little small for us. we thought the pictures it was bigger or it seemed to us so.
Als other was beautiful. Niang and Eric are very helpful.
Thank for all
Thank you to Eric for a wonderful stay at koh lanta , the guest house is in A beautiful natural and peaceful location on a amazing island . We loved waking up to the sounds of birds singing and having our breakfast looking out over the rubber plantations with the sea in the distance . And of course the mesmerising sunsets enjoyed in the infinity pool . Are stay was made very comfortable buy a excellent host in Eric
Nice studio away from the main road and located right in the middle of a beautiful rubber tree plantation. Really peaceful and relaxing, maybe a little bit too much for us, for 6 nights, because even if we had a scooter, it was a long ride for a good restaurant in the totally black evening.
Eric was kind and helpful. He rented us a scooter for our arrival with no problem. Really appreciated! He spoke with us a lot even if he was very busy, and he always tried to do his best. It is a good person.
Nyang was really nice and smiling. She helped us with reservations for Tour, because it's not easy to have transportation with Tour, until the condo. Difficult to be well understood from the Thai people, to find the studio place.
So for us, it was a inconvenience because we felt less independant, but it was not a big problem. Eric employees were also helpful with Tuk-tuk transportation until the Pier.
The studio, the house, and the jungle view was beautiful. It was very clean. The dogs was sweet and the jungle sounds was really cool.
Missing things to the apartment to make it more pleasant (for example, soap and dish towels) kettle and a clothes dryer for the outside would really necessary.
Last thing, we had a mosquito infestation in the apartment, but it was an unusual situation. Eric didn't know about that, because we did not tell him before the end of our stay. So he told us he was going to do a treatment. Anyway, in the jungle we can expect a few bugs!
Overall, it was a nice stay in a beautiful location, surrounded by lush jungle, with good people.
there is just one word to say: AWESOME!
everything is great. eric and niang are the best hosts, very lovely and nice to have around!
the daily sunset is stunning, like on the pictures.
leaving this place was the worse moment of my trip!
hope to see that place and eric and niang again...
Our time in Lanta exceeded our expectations solely because of Erics generous and welcoming hospitality. The place is exactly as in the photos, the pool is awesome, it is extremely clean, and very quiet.
Eric was more than helpful with suggestions of where to go, what to see, even where to eat. We would absolutely stay here again.
Thank you for everything, Eric! See you soon!
Eric and Nyang made my week at their place an absolutely amazing one. The studio is gorgeous, nothing is missing and there are several lovely details. The infinity pool facing the sunset is just stunning, loved to stay in there when the sun goes down.
Furthermore I was lucky to got Nyangs scooter rented for the week and I felt like having the best scooter on the whole island.
Whenever I had any questions about anything, they were always there to help me out the best possible way and giving really great hints about where to go, where to eat and what to do.
And when there fell a bit of rain, Eric invited me to a few beers on the terrace with a great view.
100% recommended, I will definitely come back!
We absolutely loved our stay with Eric and Niang. They are the perfect hosts, extremely helpful without being intrusive. The apartment was spotless and well equipped. The location is about 1 kilometre from the main road, so totally peaceful and relaxing with views over a working rubber plantation to the ocean. Eric assisted us in hiring a small motorcycle which gave us the flexibility to explore the island..Highly recommended!!.
