Our plan was to stay for 1 week at Fisherman's. But plans were meant to be changed are they not? So we found ourselves there for over 2 weeks, and quite frankly we would still be there except we had some firm dates and obligations on our itinerary that we could not change.
Kun and his band of merry men are what make Fisherman's so memorable. They are kind, genuine, funny, and very helpful. The food is excellent and we sampled almost all the menu and once it was seen what kind of foodies these crazy Canadians are, the chef and even the other guys working there created dishes for us to try. Even Kun's adorable father had dishes for us to try.
The bungalows are charming and the bathrooms are partially outdoors with plants in them and are functionable and eclectic. There is no hot water but the water was not cold, merely cool, and after being in the sun all day it was very refreshing.
There is a large TV in the outdoor chill area and you are able to play DVDs and watch movies there. You can rent motorbikes and tour the island a bit, which we did, but be careful some of the roads on the island are not all paved. We would also recommend the snorkeling trip to Koh Rok as it was very good.
Lastly, we recommend that you stroll up the beach and go to the second massage platform (has blue curtains) and get a fabulous massage while watching the surf and gloating what the poor saps back at home in the snow are doing.

What a great little place. Stayed in #2 for 4 nights. Had the best time relaxing, reading, chilling out and shopping. The staff are the best. Good guys who live to serve you. They also make some of the best food we had in Thailand and for free, let us watch how they made our food. They supplied everything we needed and treated us like friends. Stay here. Do it! You wont regret it. We would go back in heartbeat. Oh and Rent a scooter to check out this very large island. Very quiet place to unwind in Thailand.

*Sorry your trip to Phi Phi wasn't fun you 2. Wish would could have hung out longer!

Stayed there for 3 nights in November in the MantaRay Bungalow. Almost everything is said here so far and I can only confirm everything. Arriving there is kind of arriving home, you feel comfortable and "easy" from second one. I will definitely come back to enjoy the fabulous food, feelgood atmosphere and opportunity to relax. Kun and team: Many thanks from Martin & Andy

This place is a real gem. We stayed for five nights in November and had a wonderful time. Its true that the bungalows are nestled on not one of the better beaches on Ko Lanta as its rocky, bit for a couple of hundred baht and a 10 minute trip on a moped, you can be on one of Ko Lantas many gorgeous long beaches. The food is fab, the staff are really helfpful and friendly and the rooms are clean but basic. We left for 5 days for Phi Phi and lived to regret it!

When myself and my boyfriend arranged to come to Thailand as part of our GAP year travels, this was the kind of thing we expected. The place is on a quiet bend on Klong Khong beach, in the shade of dozens of palms and down a dirt road. This makes it a world of its own. We personally only stayed one night, but we would definately go back.
The bunglows are all individually made up, some on stilts, some with plaster walls, orther with reed walls. They all have a sea view and an outdoor bathroom. The toilets are all flush and the water sun warmed to the perfect tempreature [meaning if you want a hot shower, bathe in the evening]. We personally stayed in Snapperfish [no 3], and they put up 2 hammocks for us. None of the rooms have aircon, but they all have mossie nets and fans so you are safe if not a little sticky.
The beach it is on is quiet, but the sea is very warm, almost like a bath, and it is shallow and rocky so is very hard to swim in. The sunsets and sunrises were amazing.
The resturant they have there is probably the best food we have had so far in Thailand. Particularly try the bake potato and the Pad Thai. The cocktails and also really good and eveything is fairly priced.There is also a range of places to sit, on chairs, axe cushions, overlooking the beach or in the trees. Why eat anywhere else?!?
The family who own it are wonderful, caring and always looking to help. They can arrange diving, treks, anything you want. They dont however take cards so make sure you bring cash. The price for our room was 600 baht a night but I dont know how much this differs.
Overall we loved our unfortunately short stay and I would definately recommend it.

From the simple bungalows to the outdoor showers, everything is designed to slow you down to island life. The place is run to perfection by a group of friends who go out of their way to make you feel at home and relaxed. The only regret you have is the fact that you must leave Fisherman's Cottage.
