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... More

Mango House is on a more laid back time schedule. you're still around everything you need (shopping, restaurants, the pier, etc) however you still feel like you are in your own little paradise, surrounded by local culture. This makes for a truly unique experience of Little Koh Lanta. The rooms are on stilts right over the ocean, nothing better than... More

Me and my partner stayed at Mango House villas and we enjoyed our weekend tremendously. The 180 degree view from our villa was amazing. The sunrise was truly spectacular. Old Town is a great location for exploring Thai culture. There are several good Thai restaurants and coffee shops in town. It's also a great step-off point for exploring the local... More

this was our best holiday ever as Thailand lovers! if you're looking for a genuine holiday experience in the middle of an authentic fisher village, this is the place. when you're open to meet locals, you might find here some new friends. from the first moment, it felt like our second home. the construction of the house (and yes, i...

This place more than exceeded my expectations. It's not for everybody because it is a little rustic. But what it has is charm. I love being right on the water. I spent most of my time in the hammock on the deck. I found Duane to be very helpful every step of the way. The house was clean and better... More

Now, I know there are some people who will think that any poor review of the mango house is simply because it's not a "resort" or "modern". That could not be farther from the truth. We WANTED an authentic experience and house. What we DIDNT want was to be insulted and hassled. Yes, it was disorganized upon arrival/check in, but... More

This group of so called "professional well-traveled" women were the rudest, most self-important group of Americans to ever stay at Mango House. It is explained very clearly when the booking is made that final payment is due when the guests check in. They basically ignored my request for payment or several days until I was fed up and demanded payment.... More

I must say, I am WELL aware that I will not get a positive or appropriate response from the owner of this water house based on other comments left by guests - and I am doing it any way! We gave him ample opportunity to discuss any issues with us face to face in order to avoid such a response.... More

I am not sure where to even begin with our experience of this terrible place! So I am going to just start from the beginning. Me and six of my girl friends reserved the Mango House. Upon arrival we stood and waited outside for almost an hour until someone arrived to unlock the Villas. There was no clear direction on... More

Stayed here for 4 nights. Nice views but you don't get any sun on the balcony after 9am. No maid service at all - toilet paper bucket got pretty full to overflowing, no change of towels, bed sheets, etc. it got pretty smelly. Bed was a bag a springs, very cheap and nasty. It gets quite noisy at night with... More

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
