Fantastic Clean Bungalow with Amazing Food”

klein aber (sehr) fein...man fühlt sich zuhause!”
Small and very nice resort, everything very clean and new or well maintained. Good and quality TV-Selection for them who need this. Free beach-towels, free water, fast n stable WiFi. only 5 minutes to the nice beach with some nice and special bars, where u can find mind-enhancement easily😉. Can also rent motorbike from here without any passport-deposit, what always gives strange feels to me in thailand. Next ATM is 3 mins away. so, i also recommend 100%

We stayed here for 4 nights all I can say is that every good review you read is totally true, it's a total gem in koh lanta. Its close to the beach which is very nice especially when the sun goes down but also on the day, very cosy. The owners are very nice and helpful, they cooked food for us which was the most amazing food we've eaten so far in Thailand. I recommend renting a scooter from them for your stay if you wish to explore koh lanta. All in all worth every penny for your stay there!

Brilliant place to stay.”
We stayed in Thai Smile Bungalows for 2 nights and we wanted to stay even longer! Great location - just across the road from a lovely quiet beach. Dave the owner is very helpful and his wife Lek is an amazing chef. We had most of our meals here and we were totally spoilt by her cooking. The place is beautiful and it shows how much effort they've put into making it nice. The bungalow was a lovely place to come back to after a day at the beach, and the bed was really comfy. I'll definitely visit there again! Highly recommended for people who want to get away from it all!

Dave and Lek are the best hosts”
Dave and Lek were hospitable from beginning to end and the service really lends itself the good review. Dave booked everything we needed for us (transport there, back, a 4 island tour) and gave us ample objective opinions on beaches etc. The rooms were clean, warm water for showers, bungalow style, good air conditioning. Phenomenal especially for topping out at $130USD for 3 nights total! Dave apologized for it but unfortunately the jungle outside the beautiful terrace has been taken down in front of the beautiful terrace balconies outside the rooms. Away from beach but not long walk at all (across the road and through a path at a resort, probably 5 mins). Beach nearby is lovely with lots of restaurants and bars along it. Very tidal so be sure to visit in morning. Beautiful greenery and bamboo tables around hotel for Leks delicious food. Best pad Thai we had (and we had a lot). Wonderful friendly kitties on the grounds that belong to the owners— the one so aptly named concrete was my favorite. Atmosphere always welcoming, friendly, and attentive. Even as we were waiting to leave Dave and Lek brought us extra fresh fruit and bottled water for free and helped us with bags onto the truck. Book here for the little things!

Excellent in every way”
This was an awesome stay! Dave and his wife are just incredible caring and really go out of their way to help in any way they can! The food is incredible since Lek is an amazing chef. The little bungalows are super sweet and very clean, with a nice little garden connecting them. From the Bungalow to the beach is a 5 minute walk, crossing a road and you're there. Beautiful beach with a lot of bars etc. The perfect place to hang out and relax. Thanks to Dave and Lek this definetely wasn't our last stay, we will be back!

Worth Every Penny!! ”
Great place to stay. Good value for money. Dave is really helpful, booked a car and snorkelling trip for us no hassle. He is also great for any advice you need on exploring the island or just Thailand in general. His wife Lek is a great chef the food was delicious. Definitely worth eating here! The rooms are just what you need and are very clean! Beds are super comfy. The bungalows are in a good location, just set back from the main road so you don't hear the road traffic. Very tranquil. Also you can use the pool next door for 100 baht each which is good if you don't fancy the beach every day

This was our favorite place in our 3 weeks in Thailand. Dave and Lek are incredible and make you feel like home right away. Dave was so helpful in all of his advice of where to go. It was easy and inexpensive to rent scooters from him to tour around the island. Lek is a five star chef and all of our meals were so good! Highly recommend !

Hidden gem of beauty and hospitality and grace”
Dave and Lek have created a tiny piece of paradise amidst the hustle and bustle of tuk Tuks and tours on Koh Lanta Amidst a gorgeous garden created by lek you can sit in the shade outside your room and relax in the peace and quiet. Dave is a wealth of information that he tirelessly provides while also taking orders for food that lek cheerfully and skillfully prepares with ingredients fresh from the market each day. The dining area is perfectly situated in the shade of the garden and provides a pleasant opportunity to meet fellow travellers and share rave reviews of lek’s creations Stay here you won’t regret it. You can’t ask for a better combo than Dave a former guide and diver from Great Britain and lek a professionally trained Thai born chef Rooms are immaculate and modern and well kept Kudos to everyone at Thai smile They definitely give that extra something that makes your vacation special

Lured by good reviews”
The place consists of six bungalows and although the photos do not show it, is located on a small hill around 10 minutes walk to Klong Khong Beach. The garden is beautifully done up and it takes two/three looks to realize just how much work it is to keep the garden in this shape. Beautiful. That said, the "jungle" setting means very loud noises of "nature" at night like frogs creaking,, monkeys crying in the distance etc. If you are a light sleeper or you want total quiet at night, this place will disappoint you. Also, no mosquito nets on the windows or doors of the bungalows. So it becomes impossible to open the windows at night (if you want to avoid bugs sneaking in). It means you rely on air con and sleeping with air con on. We did not encounter any mosquitos. Air Con itself is strong and efficient to the point that it is too chilly. When you shower, you basically "flood" the whole toilet because there is no separation between shower area and toilet area to keep the water away.

The Place to Stay on Ko Lanta”
Thai Smile Bungalows are run by a very charming British/Thai couple. It is a small place with only a few bungalows, a bit hidden from the street and placed in a small but remarkable garden. It is not directly at the beach, but its only about 5 mins of walk. The host, Dave, is a great source of tips for things to do on the island – and always up for a chat. His wife runs the restaurant which you should by no means miss out. We ate her "daily specials" nearly every day and almost always regretted eating out. We will definitely visit again! Thanks for making our holiday awesome!

Dave and Lek are amazing hosts. The food that lek prepares for dinner at their resteraunt was 5 Star. The location perfect. The rooms beautiful. They also organized a car and driver for us to pick us up from Krabi and deliver us to Thai Smile which I highly reccoemend. You can just contact them through FB messenger and they are great at getting right back to you. The beach is across the street. The location is perfect and I highly recommend staying here!

The best place on Koh Lanta!”
Thai Smile Bungalows was a perfect place for us during our 4 night stay on Koh Lanta. Dave and Lek, the owners and hosts, took care of us in every way. Dave is the most incredibly kind and helpful person, and set us up with tips, maps and motor bikes for our whole stay. Lek, the brilliant woman who cooked for us, is a culinary genius and 5 star chef. We ordered “Lek’s Daily Specials” every night for dinner. She would pick up fresh seafood from the market each day and surprise us with the most amazing creations each night. Seriously, it’s the best food on the island and some of the best food we had in Thailand! The property is quaint, quiet, peaceful, and set in a beautiful garden. The rooms were spic and span clean, tidied up daily, and very modern and comfortable. We LOVED our stay at Thai Smile Bungalows, and are still raving about it to our friends. It’s a 5 minute walk to beautiful Khlong Kong Beach with perfect swimming at high tide and great bars. Don’t wait — book this place!

Where do we begin?! Me and my husband fell in love with Koh Lanta mainly because of this little gem of a place. Dave and Lek were such great hosts. Dave helps with everything you need, tours, scooter rent and advice on the whole of koh lanta. We still talk about Lek's food! best food in Thailand we would say. The bungalows were beautiful and clean and everything worked perfectly. We could relax and really enjoy our holiday. Can't wait to go back!!
