Literally couldn't believe my eyes when I saw a caged monkey look so distressed and scared. There was no food in the cage, a try of filthy water and a sign saying to donate. When we asked the man at the restaurant if he had any bananas we could buy to feed it he played dumb. My boyfriend and I... More

This is the kind of hotel that you would see in horror movies. Oddly enough, it's a beautiful setting in the remote southern tip of Lanta but you just get a strange and creepy vibe upon entering, kind of like walking through a dark alley late at night, or going to a haunted mansion. Whether it's the chained up monkey... More

On our tour over the island yesterday we saw 2 very sad and stressed looking monkeys, locked up alone in two cages. I enclosed three pictures. I dont understand why they have them locked up like that, they didnt seem like the kind they use for coconuts. Just as a small zoo-animal which just made the tourists who walked by... More

Why would a resort keep monkeys in cages that are depressingly small? Why keep them at all? In this day and age, doing such a thing can only be considered inexcusable. Do something about this. This is intolerable.

Stayed here as part of a group of about 4 couples just after New Years. As stated in other posts the manager is definitely a bit of a weirdo but we definitely didn't see the type of behaviour others have mentioned. We had one of the lower cave rooms which were clean and comfortable. A friend had the upper cave... More
