“Lovely resort in paradise”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

This is a small resort with a few bungalows only which already provides a friendly atmosphere. The spot is near but not at the beach which is a small weak point. This is, however, counteracted by a clean and beautiful swimming pool extremely well maintained. The staff is very professional, dedicated and kind making your stay easy going and enjoyable. Highly recommended for a stay in Koh Lanta, especially if you plan to rent a motorcycle (or a car) to tour the island. There are many impressive beaches even in the low season where the waves are high and the sea is rough.

This place is amazing! The staff couldn't have been more helpful.we hired a scooter for a day for 200 baht,not only did they tell us good places to visit but when we decided to hire it out for a extra day they didn't charge us.they booked our ferry tickets too.very friendly and helpful, she's got a little girl who's also very cute and they spoke very good english! The staff alone could of been a winner for this place,everything else was a bonus and a brilliant one at that.The pool was like getting into a bath and we watched someone clean it every morning whilst eating our breakfast. Which was very organized, they bring u out a menu which has a varied amount of food ,what we tried was very nice,as well as toast,tea or coffee and fresh fruit!
The bungalows themselves were very tastefully designed and very clean! But the bed's. OMG they were the most comfortable beds ever.everywhere else we stayed it was like sleeping on bricks. These were heaven!
There's also a beach a short walk away where we watched the sunset each night.beautiful. couldn't have a better word to say about this place.feel in love with ko lanta and here!

My wife and I visited Soontreeya Resort in May of this year as part of our annual holiday to Thailand. We stayed 6 nights. Finding Soontreeya Resort was like finding an oasis in the oasis of Ko Lanta. A very relaxing and well run establishment with only 12 bungalows, all tastefully decorated and kitted out. Among other things our bungalow included were a flat screen television ( with satellite viewing ) small fridge , safe , western bathroom, and as others have mentioned, the most comfortable bed my wife and I have ever slept on..it was, truly outstanding. Outside our room was a small covered terrace with table and chairs , a great place to sit at the end of a busy day with a cold drink and contemplate the next days activities.The large swimming pool at Soontreeya was awesome and a welcome relief on a hot day. Even though the resort is only a stones throw from the ocean , we spent most of our time in and around the pool drinking pina coladas, chang beer, eating bar nibbles and relaxing on the sun loungers. The swim up bar was not operating at the time ( low season ) but I am sure it is a hit with everyone when it is.
Included in our tariff was breakfast , and again this place does it well. You get 7 or 8 choices from a menu including an american breakfast , muesli fruit and yoghurt , eggs and omelettes etc etc and fresh , fresh coffee. Service was brisk and attentive.
The small restaurant, seats about 30, also cooks delicious thai and european food which we sampled more than once and there were no complaints , fresh and tasty at reasonable prices.
Overall, this resort was the highlight of our trip to Thailand. Its not to big , it is clean and comfortable , more than affordable (remembering it was low season and prices were adjusted)
and close to everything you may need.
During our stay we got to know the owners very well , a lovely Irishman named Conor and his equally lovely Thai wife, Sa. With their staff, they all made us feel extremely welcome and I cannot speak highly enough of them , nothing was ever a problem.
We wished we had stayed longer..and next time we shall. Well done Soontreeya Boutique Resort.

We visited February 2014, a couple with a 2.5yr old child. We arrived in ko lanta and had transport prepared for us to take us to the accomodation. Stayed for a full 10 days. location was excellent, very central and it was very easy to explore the island. Connor and his team made us feel very welcome, and were very very helpful. They are genuinely friendly people, and will treat you as guests and friends. Food at the restaurant was good, however i still suggest that you explore the 'cheap' humble restaurants not frequently visited by tourists - they are always good. Resort is the right size, not too big, but you can still meet some people if you feel like - and it was very child friendly. Do explore the other beaches of the island, and dont forget to visit Relax bay just a short walk away from the resort. Will stay here again when i revisit Lanta! Regards, from Kenneth (Malta), Johanna and little Julian.

Stayed in this hotel just last month in April. It's a comfortable little boutique hotel with only 12 bungalows. The rooms are very nice and the beds are gigantic! There were three of us in the room and we never used the extra bed they gave us.
The breakfast was good as well. No buffet breakfast, you can choose from the menu - all kinds of eggs and bacon and muesli and so on.
The pool was a hot spot as well. We spent many days in and around it.
Only about 100 meters to the beach, although you can't really sunbathe in that section, you have to walk a bit.
Overall a very good hotel for both families, couples or a bunch of friends. Will surely recommend it to everyone.

I stayed in bungalow #5 for four nights. First, I must comment that outside of five-star hotels, the bed at the Soontreeya was the softest I have slept on in Asia. None of those typical hard Asian mattresses here. The room was well done and seemed to have been recently refurbished. I loved the color scheme and of course the towels folded into playful art is always a plus. In room safe, excellent aircon and good wifi.

The bathroom is typical of what you'll find in Southeast Asia in which the shower, sink and toilet are all in the same room without some kind of divide. I understand this is shocking for a lot of Westerners but trust me it's quite common in Southeast Asia. The bathroom itself was clean and the shower offered good pressure and a little electronic water heater device (again common in Southeast Asia).

The swimming pool was amazingly awesome. I spent more than a few hours at a lounge chair just chilling out. Breakfast is listed off of a standard menu. I picked the vegetarian option each day so that was my only basis of the food but it was quite good. Each morning during breakfast I saw an outside pool cleaner guy come visit and check the pool.

The staff are super helpful and friendly. Puii at the front desk was my main point of contact for booking a motorbike rental and several tours as well as an excellent tip for a great authentic Thai restaurant. The location is pretty good as it's off the main road and not too far to the beach (just passed the Korner Bar). There is a 7-11 just two minutes down the road via motorbike.

Power went out once, but came back on within a few minutes. Not the resort's fault but if you're a Westerner you probably won't be used to it. It's okay it will come back on in a few minutes.

The place is ran by a gentleman from Dublin and his wife. Overall an excellent stay. If I return to Koh Lanta I'd definitely stay here again and I've already highly recommended the place to my friends and family.
