“A reliable place, that's it.”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

Lanta Thip House is ran by a very friendly family which takes care of the place very carefully. Reception is very nice and the services provided are good. Advice from staff on tours to do is also trustworthy.
The place, however, is not very close to the beach, so you need at least a motorbike (which is rented in the area at a high rate) and the standard non-aircon room is very basic and not so appealing, even though always extremely clean.

Room Tip: Aircon rooms are far better than non-aircon.

The Lanta Thip has great reviews for very good reasons.
Very friendly owners greet you on arrival, including their utterly adorable dog.
The house is spotless and very welcoming.
The only reason I have given them 4/5 is down to their location. There is nothing else there. Nearest 7/11 is over 1km away and the restaurants and bars are a bit further along with the beach. None of this is a problem if u hire a bike but it's something to consider.
And 1 final thing - I had a wonderful sleep as the bed was very comfortable.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not facing the main road. You may not get a balcony but you will get no road noise th...

The best rooms we ever had. Nice, and Clea. A very firendly welcoming staff. We could rent a motorcycle and go very easy to anywhere. We could always have the information we need and they would tell of many place we could go.
We recommand this place.

The unbelievably pleasing manner of the woman who runs this house I will not forget. She helped with words and deeds. She supported me by planning my further travels. You can rent motor scooter at this place and laundry is able too. The food is delicious and the coffee is yummy.
Best place to stay in Koh Lanta ;)

Room Tip: The room with two single bed is huge.

Stayed for 6 nights whilst diving off the island, two beaches were a short walk away, rooms spotlessly clean. Owner was really friendly and helpful, hired a scooter from her and when it started to rain she came running down the stairs with two macs to keep us dry! Food was tasty and reasonable and cheap mini bar in room. Really homely atmosphere.

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!
