Love this place!
Our first stay was in late 2014 and the villas were as good as new. Ian and Luk keep the villas in mint condition and we were surpriced to find that the villas still looked brand new 3 years later!
Luk and Ian can arrange for transport from the airport and any trips you might want to go on.
The staff are super helpfull and friendly.
I could not recommend the villas and staff more!
Go see for yourself - I promise you won’t regnet it!
We can’t wait for our next stay!
Beautiful villa with an amazing infinity pool. The views from the villa are equally gorgeous; Sunsets in the evening and star gazing at night from the pool.
The service was extremely good. Ian organised an airport pick up and drop off between Krabi and Koh Lanta. Luk took us around the villa and explained everything thoroughly. They provided a phone with Luk’s and Ian’s phone numbers, including a number for a taxi. Bau (taxi driver) was always available whenever we needed a ride to the town (around a 5 to 10 minute drive from the villa). The two ladies who work for Luk and Ian were also lovely. The villa was spotless!!
We organised a private long tail boat through Ian and it was the best decision ever!
Overall it was one of the best experiences we’ve had. A wonderful stay! Kulraya is a little hidden gem!
The villa certainley made an impression when we arrived it was simply beautiful with high spec interior throughout and the most amazing far reaching views down to the sea. As the villa sits facing west the sunsets were a sight to behold. The beautiful infinity pool allows you to gaze across the stunning landscape and really feel you are in paradise !
Luck & Ian are the Villa owners and whilst we met Ian a few times most of our dealings whilst staying were with Luk and she cannot do enough to make you stay a comfortable one. Throughout the stay at the villa you have the use of a pre loaded mobile phone in which you can call Luk or Ian when you are travelling around or to simply request or enquire about something.
The villa is set away up towards the jungle and sits very much on the edge of it so it may feel remote but you are really no distance from the local village and beaches or the busier town of Ban Saladan.
Ian & Luk have also come to an arrangement with a local Tuk Tuk driver, Mr Bow to be a sort of taxi service and his number is stored in the phone so you can call him pretty much any time to take you down to the beach or to the local restaurants or around the Island. Mr Bow is a lovely man, always happy to help and very reliable. You may be able to source a cheaper ride but we felt Mr Bow deserved our 'loyalty' and we therefore used him for our entire stay at Kulraya.
The women who daily bring your breakfast up to the villa and clean the villa are also very lovely people. The villa was cleaned to a very high standard and we daily had clean pool and bathroom towels. Also, if you ask for clean beach towels, again this is no problem at all.
We would love to think we will one day return to Kulraya asit really is a beautiful villa in an amazing setting, we have no hesitation to recommend this rental, you will not be disappointed.
We stayed for 2 nights in December and we was not disappointed! The villa was stunning in every way! The sea & sunset views are biblical! The pool is nice a big compared to some pool villas we looked at that offer effectively a oversized bath tub, here it was a swimming pool! The kitchen / lounge area is well furnished and beautifully decorated. It is a very open space and well lit as the front of the villa is windows & sliding doors to allow you to see the sea view at all times. It is the same with the master bedroom which if you sleep with the curtains open as we did ensures you wake up with a stunning sea view. The master bathroom is amazingly well designed with lots of space, a huge bath and a separate shower. There is a second bedroom and bathroom that we did not use as there was only the 2 of us.We can not speak highly enough of the owners (Ian, Luk & their son Loui)who are there when you need them but also offer ultimate privacy at the same time. There is a huge tv in the lounge are along with lots of tv and movies via a hard drive, the Wifi was good and reliable and there is a sound system along with indoor and out door speakers. There is a BBQ area and a vast selection of outdoor seating from dining table and chairs to sofas to sun loungers. All in all this is the ultimate pool villa! Whatever your budget make room in it for a stay here it will not disappoint!
Fantastic villa, huge infinity pool, amazing views, and quiet location, but still close to restaurants, bars etc. A must place to stay for a nice relaxing vacation. Very friendly staff and owners. We just came home from our third stay with Ian and Luk, and definitely not our last stay.
We were lucky enough to submerge ourselves in this tranquil villa for 7days. My partner and I were spoilt with outstanding views, incredible service and delicious food. Ian and Luk made our experience truly memorable with endless helpful advice, tips and arranging all our activities with ease! The stunning pictures attached only get so much better in person. Couldn't recommend this more highly.
The biggest thank you to Ian and Luk, this hidden jungle paradise has been truly unforgettable along with your incredible warm and loving nature, whoever are your next guests I'm already slightly jealous! Thank you!
This place was absolutely amazing. The views were glorious and the Villas are amazing. Ian and Luk are some of the kindest people I have ever met and helped with anything and everything. Want a massage up in the villa? Done. Dinner? brought up and set up for you in your Villa. They also provided amazing recommendations for activities and dining throughout the island.
If you stay here I'd recommend have a rental car or being comfortable driving a moped as it really is the only way to get around the island.
