“Brilliant little beach restaurant”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

We were recommended this little Gem. We had starters main courses 4 cocktails and water all for £20. Everything was cooked fresh and the owner was out chatting, as best he could, with us. Great sense of humour and we went back for the great curry.

“Great hospitality right on the beach”
Reviewed January 13, 2014 via mobile

Simple , well set out bungalows at great prices. Front yard is the beautiful long beach with great bars (ozone and pirate) and restaurants (Thai cat) within 5 mins walk along the beach. Simple tasty food, relaxed service but Mr Dang and Mr Tom will bend over backwards and nothing is a problem. Busy enough to have a great vibe, quiet enough to not be a constant party. We were there for a wedding, their first catered wedding and it was magic!

Mr Dang even managed to re route a local bus back to the airport from phuket with a forgotten bag.

Cheers

“Friendliest hosts and great value”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

We stumbled upon Somewhere Else on arrival on Koh Lanta, knowing we wanted to stay somewhere in the Long Beach area. The hut with a view of the beach was basic as we expected, and not very spacious, but comfortable enough and exceptionally good value, and even had a decent hot shower. The food at the restaurant was good quality, but it is the customer service that is over and above. Staff are very friendly, helpful and accommodating, and the place has little cabanas on the beach to which staff will serve your food and drinks. There were lots of families staying here, as well as couples, and all seemed to have a great time. We would definitely recommend for a budget stay or meal on the island.
