Lovely villa, ideal for groups.

  • 4 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: 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.

Excellent Stay.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Fantastic Experience

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Lanterns Villa was wonderful, from the excellent service to the beautiful pool and garden, we enjoyed and created memorable moments in this stunningly beautiful, well-maintained villa. Beyond the beauty of the property, we couldn't have hoped for a better experience with the help received from Khun Sa and the connection made with her graciousness and kindness. She went out of her way to ensure an enjoyable experience for us, from buying delicious papaya salad and fried chicken with sticky rice upon our arrival to preparing breakfast. The hospitality truly enhanced our experience. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for an tranquil escape.

Fantastic villa and hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Our holiday was a special treat for our family – 2 adults and 4 children.

The experience of staying at the Lanterns was out of this world – wonderful.

Booking online was easy and although apprehensive about our big trip, all worries were soon taken away from the moment we landed in Phuket.

Transfer to and from the airport was organised by Fiona and Adrian, we were welcomed at The Lanterns by Khun Sa and our stay was just amazing.

It is a beautiful villa, very safe and we were extremely well catered and cared for by the brilliant Khun Sa. She was our angel who provided as much as you wanted – gorgeous food, arrangement of car hire, did our laundry etc. We never had to ask for anything – everything was done `as if by magic’ – making our stay so happy, relaxed and luxurious.

The villa is extremely well maintained, very comfortable and such a treat that you could spend all your days there, but we chose to hire a car and explore the beauty of the island and experience the culture and kindness of the people. Nearest beaches are a 10 minute walk and there are plenty of local places to eat and drink.

We absolutely loved our time here and would love to return one day – especially if Khun Sa is part of the package!

Great too that you got to venture out and explore the beauty of Phuket and the beaches nearby.

Beautiful Villa + Khun Sa Makes This Unbeatable

  • 5 of 5

This villa is as beautiful as you see in the photos but the housekeeper (much more than that - super-talented chef and caring soul) Khun Sa makes this villa unforgettable. Anything Thai, Khun Sa can cook and will go out of her way to get the ingredients (gorgeous large prawns!), she made sure we were stocked up on beer and water, provided gifts for family and friends, washed clothes and tidied up after us all week long. Sa is an angel and The Lanterns is heaven. We would love to return tomorrow!
