        Amazing!”

        We were originally going to stay 3 nights at Shine Talay, but we fell in love with it and decided to stay a few nights longer. The staff are very friendly and accommodating, and the restaurant has great food! The bed is soft and comfortable, and the shower warm. The room overall was clean and a lovely place to sleep. It was so nice waking up to the sound of the ocean. Old town is small and sleepy, everything closes pretty early. However it is very easy to rent a scooter and go see the rest of the island. The staff was also very helpful with getting a taxi at a reasonable price when we wanted to head out for drinks one evening. Overall I would highly recommend this place to everyone!

        Little place tucked away in Old Lanta”

        The lady owner was very nice when we arrived and even gave us arrival drinks along with a map and information on everything in Koh Lanta. She recommended places to go and things to do with our 14 month baby. She would even give him bananas each day which he really enjoyed. She always had good advice on tours and such. The room that we stayed in was nice a cool when the a/c was running, they also have hot water for showers and give you free water bottles. However, the room needed to be cleaned much better as I understand it was old but the walls, floor and bathroom were not very clean. Also ants are a problem as they are in many places but they were in the bathroom as well. We also ran into a couple cockroaches a few different times during our stay. It looks like the shower water drains into the dirt below which goes straight to the ocean so that was a little disappointing. It's in a nice location on the water and it really is peaceful at night listening to the water and breakfast there is really good. So take a chance and stay there just remember it's a budget accommodation.

        Nice rustic charm. You get what you pay for so don't expect 5 star. Shine talay is clean and well situated on the water. It feels like you are on a boat as you hear the waves gently rock you to sleep. Friendly and helpful staff. Overall a value for money stay

        Highly recommended!!! Charming hotel in Old Town”

        Ambience, location, staff

        I cannot say enough good things about this place! I originally thought I would only stay one night but instantly extended once I arrived because I loved it so much. It's a beautiful old wooden house on stilts over the water so you get to hear the gentle waves outside and even under your floorboards. Staff was extremely helpful, provided free fresh juice when I arrived, let me borrow a bicycle for free, and they have a free shuttle service to/from Khlong Nin beach. The restaurant over the water is a beautiful spot to have dinner and also to watch the sunrise in the morning. Overall, one of my favorite places I've stayed in Thailand! And the price was a great value too, especially compared to other spots on Koh Lanta!

        Location, local people, pricing

        A very beautiful town and a very nice guesthouse. Very friendly staff! A nice get away from grouded beaches. Only minus was the fact that the town wakes up at 6am and you can hear everything through to the room. Though, earblugs are a must on every travel anyway so not a big problem.

        Stunning view”

        The view from the terrace, the staff and the cleanliness.

        We were made very welcome by the friendly staff. The room was clean and comfortable, the only downside was the lack of a window. A good nights sleep was guaranteed with the sea flowing under the stilted building. As we visited during the Laanta Lanta festival , the restaurant was too busy for us to eat there in the evenings, but we had a couple of great breakfasts looking over the stunning view from the deck. A truly memorable stay.
