Reviewed July 19, 2012

We booked all but one of the villas for our family for two weeks in April 2012 as we were getting married on the island and wanted somewhere where the family could all be together.

Escape Cabins was perfect. The villas suited families and couples alike. Everywhere was well maintained spotlessly tidy and we couldnt have asked for more. Everyone was happy.

Yuko and her team are fab, orgainsing trips, providing recommendations, sorting out scooters etc, and everyone was super friendly! We were also there when the Tsunami warnings went off, and despite not being onsite Yuko came up to the villas and made sure everyone was off to high ground, and kept us updated when everywhere was utter chaos.

There was a little shop at the end of the drive that had all the basics, and a great restaurant (Krua Kritsana) opposite serving Thai and English for those less adventurous. This place was always busy and it was easy to see why!

Dont hesitate to book your stay here!

Thanks for looking after us all so well Yuko!!!

Probably one of the most memorable places to stay we have ever had. Quiet, relaxing, clean and most of all extremely helpful and hospitable staff. During check in they mentioned they had free WIFI if I had a laptop. I told them my laptop had been stolen in Australia and unbelievably they lent me one of theirs for the duration of our stay. Tje value for money is simply amazing as my partner and I paiud around $40 AUS for 2 interconnecting rooms both with ensuite bathrooms. This place is an ideal chill out spot, complete with the islands best restaurant just over the road and some scooters to rent at recpetion if required. STAY HERE!

Room Tip: Our room was outstaning but I belive there are better rooms there :-)

We initially booked 2 nights at Escape Cabins, but only after half an hour we decided to book an extra night. Our room (bungalow) was very modern, clean and tastefully decorated. The bathroom is equipped according to western standards and every room has a fridge, water cooker, A/C, DVD and TV facilities (a collection of DVD's is available at the reception). Escape Cabins has a nice pool and you can rent scooters to explore the island. The owner and her staff are always available to give you advise and arrange practicalities. Across the road is mini-market and very good restaurant. In sum: a perfect place to stay and highly recommendable for those who are looking for a quiet place with a personal touch!

We were recommended Escape Cabins from a restaurant owner on Koh Phi Phi (Anna's - also highly recommended for delicious food). We arrived at Koh Lanta port being hassled by a number of touts wanting us to check out their 'quality' accommodation but decided to stick to our guns and hopped in a tuktuk to Escape Cabins. As soon as we arrived we were so glad we did. Yuko the owner was very nice and the setting for the cabins was lovely, with a well kept garden and great pool which, was really nice to jump into after rolling out of bed in the morning. We took a look round our cabin and instantly agreed that this was the nicest place we had stayed in after 6 weeks of traveling. They are very well designed with a stylish separate bathroom and bedroom. All the amenities were brand new and worked very well with aircon, fan, tv, dvd player (great to have a chilled night in), fridge and coffee making facilities in the room. The bed was ridiculously comfy which, made it hard to get up in the morning. The room was cleaned everyday and left spotless. Yuko helped us with all our wants, we hired a moped, booked trips and our transport onward through her and she was always available with a smile if we had any questions. All this was for an excellent rate on the room, we have paid much more for a hell of a lot less. It certainly helped us leave with very fond memories of Lanta, so many many thanks Yuko!

Chris and Kel, UK.

ps. this is the only place we have made an effort to review thus far in 2 months of traveling because we really felt we owed at least a review on tripadvisor for the excellent service we received!

Room Tip: All looked great and of similar quality

We stayed here for 6 weeks in April/May in Zen and the Cottage and loved it. The accomodation are fabulously maintained units varying in size and facilities. We thought the rates were very reasonable and with discounts for long stay very affordable. We were impressed by the professionalism shown by Yuko and her team. The friendliness and helpfulness shown by the staff made it a relaxed and very happy time. Aircon worked fabulously, wifi excellent and cable TV more than enough. Just off the main road with views of the hills, and a pool in landscaped gardens which gave a very peaceful ambience. Cleanliness of the resort was excellent and the choice of whether you wanted the room cleaned or not on a daily basis afforded the opportunity to be more ecofriendly. 5 minute walk to Long Beach, good cheap restaurants close by, plus tour operators and ATM. Hiring a moped through Escape Cabins was the best option to see the island under your own steam. Strongly recommended.

Room Tip: Zen or The Cottage for a little extra

We stopped at Escape Cabins for one week, after a week or so making our way down from Bangkok. It was easily our best accommodation of the entire holiday.

We were part of a larger party, ranging from 6 - 60 and escape cabins seemed to cater to all needs with a variety of villas, ranging from 1 bed 1 bath, to 2 floors 2/3 beds and kitchens.

They were all tastefully decorated in a contemporary style. Our flat had an immense double bed, a/c, satellite television, a cool little bathroom, the pool was perfect for a morning or evening dip, and 5 minutes to beach and two little towns, 30 seconds from a few shops and restaurants. The maids were polite, and efficient and oddly unobtrusive.

The best thing about Escape Cabins in Ryuko, she let us borrow her phone, and use her computer and printer to organize the last leg of our trip. She sorted us some scooters within minutes of us asking, gave frank and accurate of a variety of restaurants/beaches and things to do, and Koh Lanta in general. Oh and lent us DVDs.

Room Tip: Just ask Ryuko.

Escape Cabins is really great. My husband and I stayed here for about 3 weeks - in 2 separate cabins - Cozy and Living. Both apartments were excellent. We loved Cozy, the smaller one. Both were well furnished, very comfortable, incredibly clean (the women who cleaned were great). We used the pool quite a bit - and it was often not being used by anyone (but it all depends on who else is staying there). It's very close to the beach - but not too close as the Tsunami scare demonstrated. We found it to be a perfect location: very quiet, but also very close to beach and delicious and inexpensive food. And the DVD player, TV (and free selection of DVDs) all were great too. We went to other beaches and thought this one was one of the best - not a sterile, resort atmosphere, but friendly and beautiful and clean sand and water. We compared prices around the island and found this to be a great deal (even more so after hearing another hotel owner getting into heated fights with guests). Also, one of the most important aspects was Yuko, the owner. She is one of the best assets of the whole establishment. We have been traveling quite a bit and realize what a difference side by a manager/owner who is very organized, communicates well, and has integrity about her establishment. Also, her reecommendations and trips she organized at our request were excellent and organized well - which we see is rare. Not to mention, when there was a serious and scary tsunami warning, she was collected and thinking about her guests first. The others working there are great too - they and the quality of the apartments made our vacation really wonderful. we would recommend escape cabins in a heart beat and hope to return someday.
