    Can’t recommend here enough!!! Cute and very clean, near to old town!! Amazing homely feel! Family who run it leave a book with loads of tips on how to make the most of your time there! Nice relaxed place to meet people in shared areas! Honestly...

    This was a lovely place to stay. My room had a balcony and it was simply but beautifully furnished. The coffee/breakfast bar downstairs is a great addition. The communal bathrooms were very clean. The manager, Ton, was great, nothing was too much...

    Really beautiful guesthouse, such a lovely building. Everything about the room was amazing. The balcony overlooking the sea with a hammock was especially nice. The staff were really helpful, they even provide a detailed book of everything to do on...

Company information

The guesthouse is run and owned by us, Mon and Maayan, and our little daughter Mili. Mon is Thai and Maayan is half Dutch, half Israeli. Our main concern is that you, as our guest, will have the most amazing time on our island. Our style is to get to know our guests and be around so we can attend to your every need. We will provide you with anything you need to know about the surrounding and the island, organize different services (like transportation, trips, massages) you might be interested in and offer you any other assistance you may need. Hospitality is our passion and you will feel part of the little family that we have created!

Property information

We are thrilled to host you in our new place that has just opened its doors. We have a very clear concept in our community guesthouse: Meet new friends and experience local life together. We offer our guests cosy, light and comfortable rooms and beautifully designed community areas with a kitchen, living room and a coffee shop. We are located in a little fisherman village called Lanta Old Town on the east coast of our stunning island Koh Lanta, where you can live with the locals and experience another, less touristy side of Thailand. The village is facing the sea and you will have the chance to enjoy amazing sunrises and views of the surrounding islands. In our little village you will experience real local village life, but with comfort and convenience, having all those facilities that make traveling fun and convenient, like restaurants, shops, massage and ATM's just around the corner. There are many things to do around our area, like cool boat trips, fishing, hikes, snorkeling, caves, cooking classes and so much more. Come and stay with us if you like the concept of sharing a home, meeting like-minded new friends and experiencing life in a local Thai village.

Neighbourhood information

Sweet Life is located in a little fisherman village called Lanta Old Town on the east coast of our beautiful island Koh Lanta. It is one of the last real authentic villages still found on the island. Most tourist accommodation is located on the West coast of the island, close to the beaches. But these days many people are looking for a more unique experience while traveling. Our neighborhood will offer you the most magnificent views (probably the best of the island), a taste of local life, where you can see fishermen go out to the sea, the best seafood restaurants, cute little handicraft shops and good proper coffee places. The neighborhood has the sea on one side, and mountains, rubber trees and jungle on the other.
