“Excellent bar and rooms. Great atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2010

I booked this place on the basis of a magazine ad from Ao Nang. A prompt email reply from Nikki quoted me fantastic rates for a bungalow. Neng and Alessio met me at the pier in their wonderful tuk-tuk and smoothly transported me to one of the most fantastic places it's been my privilege to stay. It's great here.

The rooms are very simple - think bed and mosquito net. There's a shared bathroom unless you stay in one of the bungalows with ensuite. ( Who needs a roof on a bathroom anyway) so it's the very antithesis of the luxurious and expensive tourist hotels. The beach is the same though and I'd defy any place to be as welcoming and helpful.

There's a constant stream of like minded people through the door to use the bar facilities so there's always conversation and laughs. The decor is exceptional.

Downsides? Not so good for children or if you don't like dogs.

I've stayed about four nights in Chill Out House on Koh Lanta. This was the first time in Thailand, where I could just lean back and enjoy! The Stuff is friendly, trustful and helps you out with anything you need. The place itself is already worth a visit, so at least pay them a visit and have a beer or two there. (made of driftwood and bamboo and espeacially nive at night because of a lot of lamps and very tasteful music).
Cheers, Julia

One of the most characterful bars on the island, entirely handcrafted from beach materials. Nikki and Neng were fantastic hosts offering cheap beers and rooms that bring back childhood dreams of sleeping in cozy tree houses.

Would definitely recommend you stop by !

5 minutes walking distance from the beautiful 'long beach.' This place is amazing for backpackers. The owner, Neng is just a great host. He'll take you on his famous Kayaking tours or bbq you some amazing barracuda or jackfish. Even if you don't stay the bar is an amazing place to hang out, a good start to a big night on lanta or the perfect last stop.

The rooms are very basic, but what more do you need apart from a mattress, mosquito net and ceiling fan?

The whole place has been custom built by Neng and guaranteed you'll have the most amazing shower in thailand. A must stay if you're ever in Ko Lanta!
