“A Complete Joy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

Lanta Thip House is wonderful place to stay in Koh Lanta. I extended my stay twice its a fantastic base. Yes as past reviewers have said its best if you hire a bike but Thip makes it all so easy she really go's the extra mile for all your needs.
She is an absolute joy. In fact all the staff are just great.
The rooms are spotless and actually I had a room at the front of the hotel which is much larger and more spacious than the back rooms and I was more than happy. If you are still trying to decide where to lay your head on this wonderful island of Koh Lanta choose Lanta Thip House you will not be disappointed.

We recently stayed at Thip House for 5 nights, we loved it so much we came back at a later date for 7 nights. Thip is the most warm person you are ever likely to meet. When we left for Koh Lipe after 5 nights she walked out with us to the pick up van and gave a hug goodbye and when we returned it was 'welcome home' and that is how our stay felt. The rooms are spotlessly clean and quiet, we had a room at the back.We hired a scooter from Thip and this worked very well as we enjoyed visiting different beaches, restaurants, view points etc. We ate a few times at Thip House and were never disappointed, try chef Oum's penang curry. Waitress Poi is very welcoming and friendly. Do check out the sunset at Kappa Klum a 10 minute walk away from Thip House.

Room Tip: We stayed at the back which was quiet and on the 3rd floor which gave us good views.

Clean and tidy hotel with a wonderful owner and kind staff! We stayed at Lanta Thip House for a week and I felt like I was at home for the whole time I was there. The owner is amazing. She is super friendly and always ready to help us for anything we needed. The food is quite good as well. Rooms are clean and comfortable. The beach is about 10 minute walk from the guesthouse. I highly recommend it!

Thip is the loveliest, most helpful lady, you could ever hope to meet. She is the driving force behind this place & runs it effortlessly with her handful of staff. The rooms are spotless, clean & a good size. We have rooms at the rear of the building which are so lovely & quiet. We love it so much, we've extended our stay twice! You do need a bike with the location but nowhere is too far & Thip has bikes to hire. She even leant us beach mats & umbrellas to take to the beach. If you're looking for a safe, quiet, trustworthy place to rest your head, this is the place!!

We had a great time at Lanta Thip House. We stayed here for four nights, went to Malaysia for a couple of days but missed Ko Lanta so much that we decided to go back and stay another six nights at Lanta Thip House. The staff is very friendly and made us feel welcome. The rooms are spacious, spotless clean with good beds. The second time we stayed here we got a room at the back, which has a big balcony and nice view.
The location good be better since the nearest restaurant is about 1 km away. The hotel has a restaurant as well though. We rented a scooter for our whole stay, which is possible at the Thip House for a reasonable price.

Room Tip: The rooms at the back (we stayed at the second floor) have big balconies, a nice view and are locate...

We stayed at Thip House for 3 nights and cannot think of one negative point. The rooms are fairly basic but are comfortable, spotlessly clean and have air-con. You really need a bike to get around as it is quite far from the beach but we rented a great bike from Thip and thoroughly enjoyed riding around the island. The best part of the hotel is definitely it's owner Thip. She is the loveliest lady you could ever meet. So friendly and helpful. Our bag broke and we asked to borrow a needle and thread but Thip very kindly insisted on mending it herself and did an amazing job! We really enjoyed our stay and hope to come back soon.

Decent room with nice balcony, but leaking fittings in the bathroom.
Nice selection of food for breakfast, and evening meals were very good.
Very friendly staff who helped us out a couple of times.
Location ok, tuk tusk to either end of the island a few of hundred bhat, and you can walk to klong kong beach in 10min.

Room Tip: All similar and all have balconys.
