Fabulous holiday at the Lanterns

  • 5 of 5

The transfer from the airport was smooth, we arrived at the villa and where very impressed, it was clean and spacious, location was perfect 5 mins walk from the nearest beach with many restaurants and bars. We hired a motorbike to get supplies when needed. We travelled with 2 3 year old children they loved it the pool was perfect for them, would recommend this villa for families very peaceful and relaxing. The housekeeper was very good and did our cleaning and washing daily, she will also cook for you and help prepare meals. Can highly recommend this villa, we have friends that have booked already for next year. Dom

Breathtaking Villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from the most wonderful 10 days at The Lanterns Villa. Initially I was a little nervous booking a villa on line but having read the reviews decided to go for it.

From the start the communication from Adrian and Fiona was fantastic and the booking simple.

We were collected from the airport in a fabulous air conditioned taxi and arrived to a wonderful greeting from Khun Sa, the housekeeper, and the most delicious homemade supper. The villa is even more beautiful than it looks on the website and Khun Sa is the icing on the cake. She made such an incredible effort to make our holiday special and nothing was too much trouble, from booking taxis to making dinner reservations. Her breakfasts are legendary. The villa is a short walk from both Surin and Bang Tao beaches with plentiful restaurant within easy walking distance. We highly recommend Riverside and Tik.

We only hope that we will be able to return very soon.

A fantastic villa - what a great holiday!

  • 5 of 5

From the beginning the booking of the villa was seamless - both Fiona and Adrian were fantastic and were always in contact when required. When we arrived at the airport the transfer was waiting for us and the whole experience was smooth. We were greeted at the house by Khun Sa and given a tour of the villa. What a fantastic villa - 3 very large bedrooms all with ensuites. We loved that the living room and kitchen was separate to the bedrooms as it gave more privacy for everyone. Khun Sa made us breakfast every day and helped enormously with our two children. She is just fantastic.

Surin is fantasic - as is Bang Tao. Our favourite beach was Layan - absolutely stunning. We rented a car so it wasn't too hot for the kids being outside all the time and it was great to the explore the area. Lots of great restaurants and delivery available to the villa too.

The pictures on the website and also Home Away are very accurate and we were really happy with our stay! We hope to visit again!

A wonderful villa to retreat to.

  • 5 of 5

It was wonderful to say the least! We arrived early, 11:30am and the airport pick was smooth and easy. When we arrived Khun Sa greeted us with a beautiful smile and snacks and refreshments. It was a surprise to most of our party of where we were staying and they were all in shock. The fridge was stocked w/ cold drinks and snacks which was perfect as we just wanted to unpack and relax the fist day. Khun Sa ordered a wonderful local lunch that was set up just as we finished un packing. She cooked breakfast every morning and 1 wonderful meal we still talk of.

The villa was great. Private, very clean, quiet, safe and seated near walking distance beaches, food stands and restaurants. I started every day with a 7am swim and even enjoyed one is the rain.

The pictures on Homeaway/VRBO are really what you experience. No photo paint or fake shots. The lighting at night was beautiful.

Khun Sa was wonderful and such a BIG help. A "keeper" as we say to people that do their job well and go beyond the normal routine of helping.

We had a great time and Thank You All!!!

Beautifully appointed Villa for a family, with plenty of privacy

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start: booking was simple, communication with Fiona and Adrian was great. We kept in great communication leading up to our arrival. When we arrived at the airport (very late at night), our airport transfer was ready for us and Khun Sa was at the house, ready for us to arrive to show us around and to give us snacks. Khun Sa was wonderful. She made breakfast for us most days and fruit platters other days. She cooked dinner for us and gave us a lesson in Thai cooking. She kept the home immaculate. She also helped us with our laundry and helped us organize our tours. We went to Phi Phi Island as well as a canoe trip to Phang Nga Bay (John Gray tour, a highlight). Sa also gave us recommendations on where to eat and which beaches to go to. It turns out, Surin Beach, the closest beach to us, is one of the best beaches around. It is quiet and beautiful, unlike Patong Beach. My beach-loving teenagers loved the tranquility of Surin Beach. Bang Tao beach is also very nice. After a long day at the beach, we retreated to the serenity of the beautiful Villa and the great pool! It was so refreshing and fun to swim. It was fun to walk around, but then we decided to rent motor bikes. That was so much fun!! We were careful on the streets, but we had a blast on them. I wish I would have been brave enough to rent a car, but the traffic runs opposite to what I'm used to, so I settled on only a motor bike. We did, however, have a driver one day and went all over Phuket (Gibbon Rehab Center, Patong Beach, Karon viewpoint, Promthep Cape, and Old Town). It was so fun hanging out at the beach, eating at the local Thai restaurants as well as the more upscale places). There is something for everyone. Khun Sa made our Villa our home for the week, and we are eternally grateful for her (she has the cutest laugh I've ever heard and she is one of the sweetest people there is). She truly cares about you as if you were her own. We hope to be back one day.

Perfect villa for family with teenage children

  • 5 of 5

This villa lives up to the beautiful images on the web. We all loved this place, our teenage children enjoyed the location as it was only a 10 minute walk to Surin and Bang Tao beaches (partly on a dirt track, but, this is not a problem) where they could swim, jet ski, hire a sail boat, get a massage, go to the beach club, buy some local food or snorkel. Sa cooked a delicious banquet for our family one evening, the perfect finish to a big day sightseeing at Phi Phi Island. You can't really say enough good about Sa, she is an incredible housekeeper, keeps the villa immaculate, prepared a beautiful fruit platter each morning (and made sure she found out our favourite fruit), assisted us with our washing and getting breakfast and general household duties that lighten the load so everyone gets to relax....our children loved her and wanted to take her home and so did I!. Sa's local knowledge was instrumental in us having a great time, we did plenty of sightseeing and with Sa helping to organise transfers, tickets etc this was just too easy. After hearing I loved the local breakfast food Sa proceeded to bring me some for breakfast from her local market....yum yum. Our family immersed itself in Surin eating the beautiful seafood from the restaurants on the beach, local massages (the spa at Surin Plaza is also great if you are wanting to relax away from the beach). The pool and outdoor gardens at the villa were such a pleasure to come back to after a busy day sightseeing. We would definitely come back.

Surin Beach and Bangtao Beach
Car: recommended

The Lanterns Villa is only a 10 minute stroll to both Surin Beach and Bangtao Beach. Surin Beach, with it's superb collection of shops, restaurants and luxury hotels is the most sophisticated beach on Phuket. Bangtao Beach is relaxed and easy-going with more of a local feel. Both have tourist amenities and facilities such as ATM, Car Hire, Taxis, Laundry, Shopping, Restaurants, etc. The Villa is conveniently located for all of Phuket's première golf courses. They are all less than 30 mins drive but Laguna is the nearest, only 5 mins from the door. Surin Village itself has excellent shopping outlets, local markets, wine retailers and spas.There is world class shopping in Patong and Phuket Town, 20-30 mins away. Some of Thailand's most famous National Parks are close by for kayaking, rafting, elephant trekking and long-tail boat trips. Finally, for scuba diving enthusiasts, some of the finest dive sites in the World await you, for day trips or longer, in the Andaman Sea.

Golf: Golf in Phuket is truly magnificent. Long famous for its unique marine life, pristine beaches and vibrant night-life, the exotic island of Phuket has now gained international recognition as being the golfing centre of Asia.

Golf is played all year round in Phuket and with a total of seven, 18-hole, tour-standard, golf courses within 30 minutes of the Lanterns Villa, you can play every day for a week and not play the same hole twice !

Golf in Thailand is a unique experience - you can make your round as relaxed or serious as you like while friendly, experienced, caddies guide you around the course. Whether you walk or take a golf cart (it is up to you), there are regular drink and snack 'rest stops' along the way.

The Lanterns Villa can arrange Golf packages with discounted green fees for all courses & days you would like to play. Transport to and from the course is provided. Please inform us if you are interested in the Golf packages when making your reservation.

Laguna Golf Club is only 5 minutes from the Villa, and all other courses are within easy reach - Blue Canyon (2 courses), Mission Hills, Loch Palm and Red Mountain, and Phuket Country Club.For more information on the golf available in Phuket, visit our web site (link is directly below this line), where you will find links to all the courses on the island.
