What a wonderful week here! Lotus paradise is so peaceful, perfect to relax! Wonderful view! The house is perfect, the garden beautiful - all is made with much love. The location is also very convenient- very calm but near to restaurants and shops. The host is very friendly and warmhearted, giving us great recommendations where to eat or what to visit. We will for sure come back- 1 week is definitively not enough to explore the beautiful island.
This place is wonderful, the views are to die for, and the location is clutch. Would never consider staying anywhere else on the island after staying here!
-Beautiful space perfect for a large group of people (13 in our group) with enough sleeping space and two kitchens that easily facilitate a happy stay
-Check out the fruit/food a little past the 7/11 for cheaper prices and more variety
-"Call Peter" restaurant was most delicious (opposite direction from 7/11), try the pomelo salad
Just returned home after seven lovely nights at Lotus Paradise Villa. Jimmy is an excellent host and offers great advice about the best beaches, places to eat, where to rent a motorbike and lots more. His ability to speak Thai is also a great advantage. The villa is in a great location on the west coast of the island, not far from the pier at Thong Sala and within walking distance of a nice beach and within a short drive of some really beautiful beaches. Our favourites were Haad Yao and Than Sadet. Also nearby were some good restaurants including the beach BBQ at Loyfa resort, just an easy walk, the Belgian Beer Bar, La Dolce Vita, L,Alcove, Taboon and Il Barracuda. In Thong Sala there are three large supermarkets if you decide to self-cater. What we really enjoyed doing was going out in the mornings and then spending the afternoon relaxing by the villa's pool. There are a couple of shady places to sit and a lovely covered area for alfresco eating. The views are sensational. There is also a small beach area (coral shoes needed) where we enjoyed a sundowner drink while watching some great sunsets. The villa is looked after by a couple of lovely ladies who are happy to do your laundry. There is a good stock of pots and pans, a gas hob and an American sized fridge/freezer. We would thoroughly recommend renting a motorbike as the island is definitely worth exploring. Thanks Jimmy for a great stay
This is an amazing place to stay, particularly if you are travelling as a group, possibly on a holiday with friends or family - the house holds up to 12 people, so it is perfect for catching up as a group, without any distractions! The views are amazing, the pool is great and the chill-out areas (of which there are many!) are awesome. Jimmy is super friendly and helpful with lots to tips for where to eat and what to do on the island. I will definitely be going back there and would recommend it to anyone, especially if you are travelling as a group (though even for a couple it would be amazing too!).
