I'm going to try not to be too negative about the Sea life villa.
We have stayed in villas/appartments in loads of far flung places in the world, and I have to say, this was by far the most uncomfortable!
Yes, the villa is spacious and roomy. But the basic comfort needs were not met. The matresses on the beds were the hardest I have ever slept on. The sitting room furniture was hard and uncomfortable. Even the dining chairs were uncushioned! Little things that make all the difference.
There is a plumbing problem. If the downstairs toilet is flushed the wrong way, the water continues to pump and the pump eventually fails. If you leave the house, having forgotten., or not noticed, there will be no water for a few hours when you return. We had to wait for water quite often.
The final insult was the 'laundry bill'. In one week, a cleaner came once. Changed sheets, towels etc. Stuff that you expect to be included in the price. But we were presented with a bill for them! And the electrcity was added to the bill at the end. Which also, I have never experienced before.
The cooking equiptment provided was okay.
The location was up a hill from the main strip. Which isnt a problem if you're young and fit! But in the heat, a struggle!
All in all...would we come back? To Ko Lanta yes...to Sea Life Villa....no!
We stayed early July and had a wonderful time! Koh Lanta is a great island for a family and lots to do. I was with my husband and out two kids. The villa provided all the needs we wanted. Safe, Quiet and close to the beach. Nick, the manager was super friendly and very helpful. We rented a car from him and he organized our airport transfer.
Thank you so much for proving such a nice villa. It was clean, comfortable and so much fun for the kids. They loved it!
We will be back :-)
My husband and teenage son stayed in this villa in April 2014, we had a wonderful relaxing time and the manager was wonderful. He was very helpful, in telling us where to visit and sights to see. We enjoyed the near by village of Saladan. Many wonderful beaches around to check out! Beautiful views and we enjoyed cooling off in the splash pool.

This looks great on the internet,however do not be fooled.What it does not tell you is that you are overlooked by a block of other holiday rentals(within 15 meters of the rental) .when we arrived at the property it had not been cleaned,was filthy dirty and smelly. We had to drop our bags off and walk to the beach area and sit around for a couple of hours, which was not nice after traveling for over nearly 19 hours.When we got into the rental we found that ther was no hot water at the kitcheh sink,or at the wash basins in the batrooms.My friends (a couple) who were also staying with us were not happy at all,when doors to the bedroom and bathroom were sticking and had to be forced open,then during their first night the a.con broke down and we had to hunt around for batteries.Next morning my friends wife decided to prepare us breakfast. but when she got out the frying pan it was covered in grease, and the plates and cutlery were also dirty.It was then we noticed a bad smell and after a search found some rotting food under a cushion on the sofa.This was the final straw for my friends who moved into a hotel.We could no afford to follow suit, so my wife spent half a day cleaning the place!.When we checked out we were also presented with a laundry bill which was mentioned.All in all this property is tired,is a 10 min walk to anywhere and at night is not illuminated at all,please stay somewhere else.
