I don't really tend to make reviews of places, but this place made me want to. I want to because I want everyone else to have as great of an experience as I did.
Me and a friend were traveling in Thailand for a month. We had planned on spending two weeks down south, island hopping. Koh Lanta was the second place we went to and almost ended up being our last. We found Chill Out House through tripadvisor and really wanted to check it out. We had planned on staying 3 nights and ended up staying 11!
I don't really know what to say other than this place felt like home. I wasn't certain about it at first, because I'll admit, I didn't think I could hang living in a treehouse. I didn't think I could "rough it." All that stuff didn't matter after the first day. Everyone who works there is so welcoming and warm, there is a real sense of community there. You just felt like you were part of something, like this was YOUR home. I really grew quite fond of my little treehouse room and actually kind of miss it now. Everything is clean. The food is great. Get a shake in the morning from the cute little lady on the corner.
I didn't meet one person who didn't fall in love with Koh Lanta. And I know for a fact, anyone who was staying at Chill Out House was in love too. No one wanted to leave! So, if you're going to Koh Lanta, check it out. It's good for the soul.
