We’re a family of three (with one 9 months) staying at Lanta for three months. Sunset residence was our first stay and I must say it was way over our expectations. Why? Because the images on jojolanta.se didn’t really give the facilities justice – much better irl and then we also could relate more to the price, which is quite high being Lanta. Guess “price premium” would be the right expression here.
For us being a family the resort had everything we needed:
- Premium feel to the house itself (B5)
- Big terrace where we could hide form the sun daytime using a fan for the little one
- Probably the best pool at Lanta with great cleaning system (cleaned every day)
- Take away delivered right to the house to good prices
- Beach just nearby if you’d like
- Close to all restaurants at Kong Klong beach (recommending Green Chili)
All of the 12 houses have private owners. Some of the rent out their houses and others don’t. We met about five other families upon arrival, which was great of course due to being in the same situation having the same needs. Besides the families you had the owners, which was all nice except a newly arrived owner who recently had bought his house. Grumpy, unfriendly and didn’t really like families even though he and his entourage stayed up all nights partying. Well, guess you can’t have it all ;)
I really want to thanks Jörgen and Lynn, a couple who owns and stays at SR six months every year. They helped out big time and know everything there is to know about the Lanta and the nearby area. Always friendly and social without being “on you” all the time. Much appreciated.
So, all in all I highly recommend staying here if you have a family and/or just want to get away from the buzz at Long Beach for example. Perfect stay!
