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!

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!

Beyond expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three couples, grandparents, new parents with 7 month old baby, and newlyweds had the most unbelievable stay at the Laterns. The childless people went on excursions and the baby's parents got inhouse massages and walked to the beach. The house was in fantastic condition but it was really Sa, the most lovely housekeeper ( she's MUCH more than a housekeeper) she cooked restaurant style thai dishes each night, cleaned, grocery shopped, arranged excursions, massages etc etc - she really made the trip.

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.
