Rent Condo in Ko Lanta - Suite in a complex - 750 sq ft / 69 sq m - Ground level
Welcome to our collection of authentic, Chinese-style wooden pole suites and villas that have been converted into stylish, over-the-sea rental homes. Each of our vacation units is located directly over the ocean in an old Chinese fishing village named Lanta Old Town on Koh Lanta Island in Krabi, Thailand.
This 70 sqm suite features a sea breeze and fan-cooled waterfront bedroom with a double and single bed. The bedroom looks over the private, seafront terrace which contains a low table, sitting pillows and two hammocks to enjoy the spectacular, uninterrupted views over the picturesque harbor.
Inside, this renovated and modernized pole house has vaulted ceilings and a fully functioning kitchen with breakfast nook, large fridge, 4-ring gas cooking hob, coffee machine, toaster and hot water dispenser. The unit’s western-style, bathroom leads onto the living room area decorated with comfortable seating, colorful art and free WiFi internet.
Lanta Old Town is located on the nature-rich, southeast coast of Koh Lanta, only 15 minutes away from the beaches and tourist areas on the west coast — yet far enough to allow the village to retain its traditional culture and charm.
The people in Old Town, originally the island’s main trading center, are fishermen families who have lived in the town for generations. The area is a study in cultural diversity with three distinct groups of people – the seas gypsy people of the Urak Lawoi clan, Thai Muslims and Thai Chinese – coexisting in harmony for over 200 years.
Today, the fishing village has taken on a ‘bohemian’ feel in the day when tourists from the other side come over to explore some of the island’s funkiest shops, restaurants, cafes and bars. The town has limited accommodations, but there are several villa rental options and a few bed and breakfasts. There is also now a small community of foreigners that call Old Town home and many visiting boats moor in the safe harbor.
The seaside homes – typically called Pole Houses – are built on stilts directly over the water and overlook an incredible harbor view and an array of small tropical islands in the near distance. The sunrises and sunsets are famous among locals in this sleepy late night town that hosts the annual Lanta Lanta Festival in March.
