Perfect for Family Holidays
The villa is exactly as shown on the pictures, and i confirm the previous comments about the villa manager, Khun Sa, who helped us with everything: trip organisation (to khi Phi Phi and Elephant Ride), maintaining the house perfect and clean, cooking ( I highly recommend her: better than any other Thai restaurant!!!!), food shopping, etc...
We were 7 people in the house: grand parents, parents and 3 small kids. Everyone was happy. Being close to 2 difference beaches is great: you can go to one in the morning and the other one in the afternoon! The distance is definitely a walking distance, 10-15 minutes with small kids. On bangtao beach you can hire a boat (per hour), and go to a small island for snorkelling. easy with kids as well.
Surin beach is amazing for the sunset: sit in a restaurant and watch, or swim in a pink coloured sea!
About the pool for small kids: for sure you will need a 24h awareness, but once they understand the danger they are careful themselves (mine are 4,5, 3 and 1).
Communication with Fiona is also great, easy and fast. Thank you fiona!
The house is in a very safe area.
Thank you for your lovely review. We are so happy that you and your family found the stay at the villa so comfortable and enjoyed all the beach activities close by. We aim to be as family friendly as we can and you are welcome back anytime.
Wonderful stay in all aspects - highly recommended
The Lanterns is one of those places that I think as a family we will always talk about and look forward to hopefully staying at again in the future.
The only negative - we would've liked to stay longer.
The villa offers perfect tranquility and privacy and is immaculate in all respects. There is a level of attention to detail and comfort that the majority of home stays just don't have - fresh flowers in the rooms and on statues around the pool, beautiful fixtures and furnishings.
The pool, and areas for relaxing around it, are great - sun loungers, sala and a poolside table for eating at, if it's not too hot.
If that wasn't enough - then, as many reviews attest to, there is Khun Sa. She really is the icing on the cake and did everything she could to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. She welcomed us as if we had always know her and were arriving back home. She was extremely attentive yet discrete, preparing fresh amazing food, bringing us a coffee by the pool, and our children cold water or juice, and helping guide us and arranging a couple of things accordingly.
As others have done, we'd recommend eating dinner at home at least once. On the day we arrived, Khun Sa had prepared a wonderful lunch and for another day, we worked out a dinner menu with her that catered for both Adults spicy needs, as well as something not spicy for our children. Her and her cousin (I think), spent most of the day preparing something that was nothing short of a feast. There was some leftovers which served us well for a poolside lunch next day and as it appeared a little short, without asking, Khun Sa made some additional spring rolls.
The villa is almost equidistant to the two lovely beaches and certainly in walking distance even when hot, although we struggled to find the shortcut to Bangtao across the rough ground mentioned in the house guidebook. We were waved away from what we thought was the right direction but it was a holiday, so perhaps that was why? We took a tuktuk a couple of times and both drivers knew the location.
Fiona was very responsive and arranged the airport transfer which was very smooth. Khun Sa fixed up a couple of massages for us which we had in the sala, both of which were fabulous, even if our kids were noisy during it!
Oh, one other negative - the wonderful breakfasts prepared fresh every day, incl. an array of fresh tropical fruit and smoothies, are rather large!
We were very sad to leave and can only highly recommend The Lanterns.
Thank you for posting a wonderfully eloquent and thoughtful review of your stay at the villa. To receive such positive feedback is always hugely rewarding both to us owners and to our lovely Housekeeper Sa. Please stay longer next time, you will be welcomed back as a family with genuine affection.
Definitely au revoir
I hesitate to give The Lanterns a glowing review - because it'll mean it's fully booked next time we want to come!
Firstly the property - sumptuous. There a sense of space and tranquillity, it really is as nice as the photographs suggest. We had a few BBQ's with friends over and it's a lovely place to spend time.
Secondly the location – ideal. Peaceful whilst close to lovely beaches where cheap food and sunbeds are readily available. If you don't want to walk, then it's only 100Baht in a TukTuk -you are on holiday after all. Then at night, you can relax in the villa, one of the many low-key bars and restaurants or put on some glam rags and splash out on a night in one of the up market venues (eg. Palm Seaside). Then there's the whole Laguna area with a wonderful Golf course (quite a lot of water!) and Fri night market.
Finally Khun Sa - if this lovely lady could do more to make your holiday any better, I've yet to think if it.
Thank you for taking the time to write a wonderful review of your recent stay and for giving us such glowing feedback. We are thrilled that you enjoyed relaxing in and around the villa and got to spend time with your friends whilst you were there.
You are welcome back anytime.
Lovely villa, ideal for groups.
Really liked the villa. It was kept well and had everything we needed. The pool was lovely and warm. The lady who cleaned was lovely. Very friendly and helpful.
The middle bedroom would benefit from having a safe and full length mirror as compared to the other two rooms this one did feel less well equipped.
It was hard to find the villa with many taxi drivers needing to ask directions. This lead us to think that we were much further out than we actually were and as a result we spent a lot of money relying on taxis to get to the town and beach when in fact it is completely within walking distance.i think that could have been made clearer as we also found the taxis can charge anything they want.
Overall really good week at the villa. Some good places to eat and lovely beaches nearby and the little Sawsadee restaurant around the corner was our best find.
Thank you for your feedback and so glad that you had a good week at the villa and managed to find your bearings. I just checked with our villa manager and a map of the villa and how to get to the beaches and town was in the villa information file for reference. The exact location of the villa can also be found on it's HomeAway web page.
I never have been stay like this accommodation.
I and my friends were amazed and admired by the villa when we first entered there. The villa is same with the pictures. no exaggerated.
Fiona was very kind and replied quickly, and Khun sa offered excellent service to us. We hope to go again this villa, and miss here and Khun sa.
I strongly recommend to stay here.
Thank you Sohee. Come back soon!
If your search for a villa in Phuket has brought you to this page and your dates are available, then lucky you. Im the kind of person that researches, and researches, and then researches some more, my safety net is usually The Ritz Carlton. From my first contact with Fiona to our farewell with Khun Sa, everything was flawless. My only regret was not having stayed longer. Book with extreme confidence.
Thank you so much Carlos for your kind words and happy to hear that you had such a great experience. I know Sa would have loved for you guys to have stayed longer too. Come back soon!
