I returned from Koh Lanta last week after staying at Jai Dee Home for a couple of weeks.

Ever since getting back I've recommended Jai Dee Home to anybody who will listen!
I had such a great time and was made to feel at home by James + Kgung both of whom made an already idyllic surrounding very comfortable, relaxed and very, VERY tasty!

The atmosphere is chilled out with cool tunes after sunset, (and during sunset is happy hour at the bar!) just writing this review is reminding me of my 'happy place' in the hammock which I found myself daily.
The location is the place to be in terms of a beautiful beach, chilled out vibe, nice bars, GREAT massages (recommended by Kgung) all of which aren't too commercialized, cluttered and in your face, so perfect for what I consider an enjoyable holiday!
Koh Lanta has a party scene which is easily accessed for as and when you choose but it isn't slap bang on your door step for when you just want to chill, 5 min's walk from Jai Dee's is some great bars for when you want to get on it! James pointed me in all the right directions for a great night out, Mongs Bar host party's on a regular basis and is well worth a visit!

The 'Lovely Sarnies' well and truly lived up to their name and were sampled many times!
If you have a stomach for spicy food definitely try the 'southern curry' which was a challenge and at the same time,,, yummy!
Kgung is a great cook and very sweet, both her and James make sure you have a pleasant visit.
Other things to try on the menu,,, chicken wings soaked in rum,,, and the ice cream covered with rum with bananas is to die for!! Ohh and not forgetting a proper good 'ol English breakfast all of which are cheap as chips,, literally! (Depending on where you come from that is!).
Drinks are cheap and theirs lots of cocktails to sample!

We stayed in their room on the beach which had a hot shower, tv + dvd player and James has lots of DVD's which he was happy to lend me, the room was very comfortable and at a very good price.

Lots of activities can be arranged from a 'Otto's' which is a couple of doors down from Jai Dee's.

All in all I had such a lovely stay and can't wait to return next year.

Thank-you James and Kgung you lovely lovely people.

Good place to stop have some food and look for a room, James is very helpful and you might just get the chance stay in one of there rooms. The Jai-dee has people who return year after year just to sit and watch the sunset.

Have just come back from staying in Ko Lanta for 2 weeks at Jai Dee Home, having spent the last 12 years coming to Ko Lanta this fantastic guest house is definitely the place to be. Some great food with proper bread is fab, thai food to die for and of course that fantastic view of some of the most amazing sunsets while sipping my glass of vino is just perfect. Many thanks to J and K for making Jai and myself feel very comfortable and we are both so looking forward to returning next year.

We wanted to have a weddingceremony on Lanta and contacted Jai-Dee home and and they agreed to arrange it for us. And so they did:) We had our wedding party right on the lovely Klong nin beach with beatiful flowerarrangements and a munk who came and had a wedding ceremony for us. It was so romantic and perfect. And the food Khung had made for us was abslutely fantastic - the best we have ever tasted in Thailand during all the years !!! All arrangements were taken care of by Jai Dee´s, we just had to enjoy the evening - and it turned out to be even better than we had hoped for - a memory for life. A restaurant my wife and I really can recommend !

Great sandwiches to be had. Ingredients include real back bacon (a rarity in Thailand) and pork and herb sausages! Two reasons for any Brits abroad to drop in for breakfast or lunch.
