“Wonderful and accomodating”
Reviewed April 21, 2012

I stayed at the Lanta Thip House for about a week upon a friend's recommendation. The room was beautiful and clean, with a great view and the personal safe was an excellent touch. I had no issues with the staff, who were polite and accommodating throughout my whole stay. Thip helped me with all my questions about stuff on the island and arrangements that needed to be made. The beach was just a short drive away, easily accessible. If you're looking for a quiet relaxing spot, this is your place!

Thanks Thip!

This place is simply great! The staff is super friendly, the room is clean and spaceous, the Wifi was fast, the breakfast is yum yum and the location is superb if you have a scooter or car.(You can rent a scooter at the hotel) Its on the middle of the island and only five minutes away from Klong Nin beach which has some great restaurants and bars. We stayed here for two weeks and had the time of our lives. We are definitively coming back here!

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the street, not so much because of the noise, but for the view.

Most clean room I found on my trip to Thailand. The WiFi works great in the rooms, unlike in most hotels. The bed was great. Very silent room despite being turned to the main road. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is the only downside of this hotel, if you do not have a bike or car (you will have to walk a bit to the beach, and there's basically nothing around). If you do have one (which I recommend if you come to Koh Lanta), then it's a perfect place to stay (middle of Koh Lanta), five minutes from Klong Nin beach and a lot of restaurants and bars.

We picked Lanta Thip because of its great reviews. However, although the rooms were very nice and incredibly clean it is quite far away from anything! Close to some of the quieter beaches but with a scooter it's quite dangerous to go out for dinner on unlit roads at night with big pot holes! We just felt that it was too much to ride to the beach at day and then again at night for dinner. 7km to Long Beach.

It is pretty good value but you can stay on the beach for the same price or less! There are 14 rooms and it's good if you want to stay away from the beach scene in a b&b but it would be hassle to find food especially if you can't ride a scooter!

Plus points - illy coffee and twinings tea :)

Thip has an amazing guest house and truly makes you feel welcome all the time. Everything is so clean and well run. Our room was serviced daily with complimentary bottled water as an added bonus. Thip was a great resource for information and went out of her way to make arrangements for us. We also rented a motorbike from her that made it easy to explore the island and get to the different beaches. You can walk to the closest beach, but for better swimming we found having the motorbike a necessity. There was a room safe that was a nice bonus but felt like overkill for such a secure and well run guesthouse. We would come back and stay here again! Thanks Thip!

Our stay at Lanta Thip was top drawer. Having already stopped on the island moving from one hotel to another, we stopped at Lanta Thip. The hotel is clean, well lit, tastefully decorated and has everything you need. If it hasn't, then Thip will sort it out for you.
We had a spacious double room with air con and en suite. It was clean, well maintained and had nice furniture. We also had a balcony.
The hotel is a bit of a walk (20 mins)to nearby restaurants but the owner Thip hires out bikes for a good rate so access is no problem. Thip and her staff are the friendliest people you could ever wish to meet and will do anything to make you feel at home. They took the liberty of organising our transfer back to Krabi without any prompting.
The hotel is ideally situated for all Lanta has to offer and the majority of tours will do pick ups from the hotel anyway!
It's true what the sign in reception says, "arrive as customers, leave as friends". Great place!

Room Tip: Rooms on the west (back) offer a better view

We only booked one night but ended up staying for six. The staff was extremely helpful and accommodating. The rooms were clean and spacious, and the common areas are nice as well. Food in the restaurant was superb. We would stay again in a heartbeat.
