LANTA SUNNY HOUSE
Koh Lanta Location Lanta Sunny House's location just 2 minutes from the beaches of Koh Lanta and the Pra-Ae Village makes it the perfect base for exploring the island's attractions. Ideally situated in the growing Southern Thailand province of Krabi, Koh Lanta has been converted from an 80's backpacker haunt into a new hotspot in South East Asia. And while budget travelers still find ample space to cool their heels, Lanta has gone up-market in the past few years with new four and five star resorts dotting its picturesque 40 kilometers of Andaman Sea coastline. The island's proximity to Phuket, Phi Phi, Krabi and even Bangkok, makes it a great holiday alternative to other crowded and commercial tropical island destinations.
Koh Lanta is actually made of two islands; Koh Lanta Noi and Koh Lanta Yai. Koh Lanta Noi is the smaller of the two islands and doesn't have tourist facilities. Visitors traveling by road from the mainland travel across the smaller island on the way to the resorts on Koh Lanta Yai.
Historically, Koh Lanta Yai played a major role as a safe-haven port for traders from Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia. Originally, Si Raya (known today as Lanta Old town) on the east coast, acted as the port and commercial center for the island and provided safe harbor for Arabic and Chinese trading vessels sailing between the larger ports of Phuket, Penang and Singapore. Today, Old Town is a small sleepy village with 100 year-old shacks and shop-houses built on stilts over the water. Nowadays, Ban Saladan on the northern tip of the island is the business and commercial center where most visitors arrive on the island.
Koh Lanta Yai is a long thin island running north-south; approximately 32 km long by 6 km wide. It has a very diverse cultural mix with Thai-Muslim, Thai-Chinese and the original Sea Gypsies, all having lived on the island in harmony for hundreds of years. The west coast, Lanta Sunny House’s location, faces the Andaman Sea with a string of great white-sand beaches and offers most unforgettable sunsets.
Koh Lanta Yai has something for everyone - families, backpackers, and upscale travelers - each of whom can select their own particular style of island life. It has a beach, a resort, and activities to suit all tastes. Koh Lanta Yai is also the location of Lanta Sunny House, an affordable retreat that offers cozy accommodations and an array of leisurely diversions.
