Amazing location over the water in a nice part of town
The afternoon we arrived the sea was very choppy, which made the first hour or so very exciting, strange to get used to and unforgettable really. The Mango Seafront Suites are beautiful old refurbished fishermen's shacks, made entirely of wood, with lovely smooth wooden floors and big cracks between the floorboards. If you want to see and hear the sea beneath your feet you won't be disappointed. The tide comes in and goes out and is a gentle, pleasant marker on the time of day; unless it's choppy and the sea is raging beneath your feet, in which case you're probably being conscious of not dropping anything small or valuable through the floorboards. The suites are located a few doors down from Fresh restaurant, which is fantastic, a lot of variety. There are lots of other little eateries and good places to shop in Old Lanta Town, including the best Thai-style, holta-neck dress shop ever. It's a very nice part of the world and the Mango Seafont Suites make it even more special with sweeping views of the bay and a big over-water balcony with chairs and a hammock to lose yourself in the view. A fantastic place to relax.
