“a totally hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013 for a stay in March 2013
1
person found this review helpful

this is the 2nd time we have stayed at escape cabins. It is absolutley fabulous. So peaceful yet the beach and restaurants are onlly 5 minutes walk away. There is only 7 cabins surrounding a beautiful pool. Yuko the owner is so helpful, she can arrange almost anything you want to do or just give you honest advice. We stay in the cozy cabin which is one bedroom and love it but there are larger cabins aswell. Iwould never stay anywhere else its just so relaxed and informal. We are just looking now to book our next trip. Its just a gem of a place and so is Yuko.

“An Oasis.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We stayed for over a month and what a great place only made better by the great staff and owner Yuko has built a fantastic place and team. . Very accommodating, helpful and a level of attention to detail that I don't think you would easily find on koh Lanta.

We stayed in the largest cabin with the mezzanine floor and had a lovely view to the pool. Our infant stayed upstairs and it was just great. It was very large and the high ceiling really made the place so spacious and we actually spent a lot of time indoors and then popped out to the pool or our patio.

We had a large kitchen and a storage room and a dining room.

We would have loved to stay longer but our visa expired. If we end up back in Koh Lanta another time we will certainly consider seriously staying at Escape.

Good - staff amazing. lovely cats.large space in cabin. kitchen. decor. poolside.

Bad - none.

Its not a larger hotel or resort, but a small boutique set of rooms and villas. You dont have a restaurant on site, but you really don't need one as within 2 mins you can be at approx 5 restaurants just down the driveway. Its nice as you get privacy, but also your not totally alone. We liked that as it felt secure.

“Perfect for the Backpacker Who Has Grown Up.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

.......and expects his Thai lodging to be more than a bungalow with a thin mattress and fan, but yearns for interactions more genuine than those to be had at a luxury hotel. Escape Cabins was an ideal blend between the at-home feel of bungalow lodging and the higher standards and amenities one finds in larger hotels. The cottage we stayed at was not only very clean and well-kept, but designed in a tasteful Asian style. The cottage was perfect for our family since there was a loft where our two boys could sleep, and a kitchen and dining area that freed us from having to eat out all the time. When tired, our boys watched movies and cartoons on the many cable channels of the television. The pool was just an a good size for playing and adequate size for exercise, but an ideal place for cooling off, playing, and socializing with the other guests. The grounds were charming and well maintained. But most importantly, the owner and staff looked after our needs with a sincerity that you do not find with the staff in crisp uniforms of luxury hotels. And if it is luxury that you want, then Escape Cabins may not be the place for you. Though clean, the bathroom is awkwardly designed so that water from the shower wets the toilet, and though the staff tries, it is hard to keep inhabitants of the surrounding lush greenery out. If you leave food on the floor, you will invite a steady stream of minuscule ants. But this did not bother us so much because everything else we wanted from our experience in Thailand we found at Escape Cabins--friendly people, beautiful surroundings, and a relaxing environment.

“A little piece of heaven......”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2012 for a stay in February 2012
1
person found this review helpful

This was our second visit to Escape Cabins and once again everything was perfect. The cottage is located in a beautiful and lush, green tropical garden which is very serene and peaceful. With a good sized swimming pool in the centre.

We opted for the Cottage this time which was wonderful, it had everything we needed and more, a huge living area, kitchen and dining area, storage area, good sized bathroom, mezanine (where our daughter slept and loved it!), a great deck poolside, your own PC and, best of all the most comfortable beds we've ever slept in, in Thailand! All rooms are cleaned daily and the beds changed regularly, it's so lovely to come home after a day out and everything is neat and tidy again.

To her credit, the host and owner Yuko has created a little piece of heaven here and nothing is too much trouble for her. I asked one morning if she may have a spare toaster we could use for breakfast and by lunch time Yuko had bought and delivered a new toaster! She organised a motorbike at a really good rate and a snorkelling trip to Koh Rok cheaper than we were quoted elsewhere - incidentally it's a great trip - our laundry was returned the same day, everything was effortless. She chatted away happily for hours with our daughter who kept saying "I want to go and sit with Yuko".

We love the location of Escape Cabins and actually like being off the beach, it's so much quiter than the beach resorts. Best of all for us is the food available really close by, there's a great selection of really good and authentic thai restaurants which are so cheap, but even better there's a great selection of street food right on your doorstep including, papaya salad and barbeque chicken, noodle soup and shrimp fritters Yummmmmy!

We have nothing but praise for Yuko and Escape Cabins and having just returned to the UK I'm ready to book again for next year.

Thanks again Yuko for making our holiday so great.
