About the property

Sitting In A Private Walled Garden, Enjoy Complimentary Welcome Pack

Enjoy a Complimentary Welcome Pack of Wine, Beer, Soft Drinks and Snacks.

Situated on a gentle hillside, 5-10 minutes walk from two of Lanta's best beaches, this 250+sqm hillside villa offers beautiful, panoramic, views of The Andaman Sea. A large, 1000sqm, private garden - with a private pool - makes our house a dream for families and couples alike.

Standing on it's own part of Phra Ae's lower hills, this property isn't surrounded by other houses built on top of each other. Space, privacy and tranquility are what The Levels provides in abundance.

The property was built in 2008 and decorated in a modern, but natural, style, with Teak hardwood floors and furnishings, a chef's kitchen and an open floor plan for entertaining groups. The master suite contains its own private bath with walk-in closet / dressing room. The bedrooms have super comfortable king beds, with en-suite bathrooms and direct terrace access through sliding doors.

About Chris and Gak

Gak and Chris lived in and worked out of Koh Lanta for 14 years thoroughly enjoying calling it our home. Now we would like to share it with you.

Having (amongst other things) spent the years producing corporate, promotional, videos for the hotel and leisure industry, we have been lucky enough to have stayed in some great places around the world - and have learnt a lot from them about high quality hospitality and resort-style servicing of customers.

We take great pride in our property and are responsive to any of our customer's needs. Since we have a locally based management team, we deal with our guests directly – from key exchanges, to repairs, and anything in between. Our property is fully furnished and has all the amenities of your home plus, maybe, more!

Chris and Gak purchased this villa in 2008

Why Chris and Gak chose Sala Dan

We built this house specifically to create the best of three worlds: proximity to the beach; sea views; quiet hillside away from the crowds. The swimming pool is large enough to enjoy and is specifically designed to relax and cool off in - we feel that a larger swimming would discourage people from exploring the amazing beaches that Lanta has to offer!

The property is fully provided for in a wonderful homely style. This isn't a cold, unwelcoming villa but a warm and inviting family home which you will love.

The large decking area upstairs is spacious and offers amazing sea views and starry nights and is also semi covered by an Australian sun shade.

What makes this villa unique

The views. The tranquility. The garden. The very large downstairs shaded area. The location.

The list goes on...!

Great Views and Fantstic Setting

  • 4 of 5

The setting of The Levels is fantastic with great sea views from the first floor and a nice private garden. Only five/ten minutes walk from the shops and some great restaurants.

The pump in the water well had failed before we arrived and the relief pump failed a few times over the stay which meant that we had no water at times and really bad pressure particularly in the shower when the water was working. However, the problems were always followed up quickly and hopefully the normal system will be reinstated soon.

The villa is well furnished inside although showing its age a little, but we had everything we needed (some more towels would be nice though as one bath towel each for six days is not really enough).

Given the fantastic views from the upstairs deck, it would be nice if the owner invested in some smart new furniture both for this deck and the pool below as the furniture is old and mismatched and there are no seat cushions etc. The downstairs steamers still have cushions, but these are old and quite grubby and the plastic recliners and upper deck seating have no seat cushions. Smart new furniture on the upper deck and new cushions for downstairs seating would help give the place back its wow factor. The pool could also do with being relined as the lining is getting quite stained and there is debris caught in the seams - the water is actually very clean, but it doesn't look inviting because of the black foliage debris at the bottom of the pool.

Overall, the villa is great value for money and we enjoyed our time in the area - some easy fixes would have made it really brilliant.

Owner's Response: Hi Margaret, thank you for you review. I am very glad that our management took care of the water challenges so quickly and effectively. The other feedback is noted and we are looking at some options. I am sorry that more towels weren't provided. Did you ask for additional towels as we have plenty to give to guests. Thanks again.

A great hideaway on a beautiful island

  • 4 of 5

The Levels is a little bit of privacy on the gorgeous island of Koh Lanta. There is plenty of space in this property - the upstairs terrace is perfect for relaxing in the shade and watching the sunset, and the area downstairs is great to relax for a spot of afternoon sun and a much needed dip in the pool.

The property is suffering a little with wear and tear in some of the outside areas but this did not affect the stay. We also had a hiccup with water when the property ran out but you have to accept that things in Thailand don't run as smoothly as in the UK. Once resolved (quickly) the rest of the stay was lovely.

The Levels is a 5 minute walk to the main strip where there are plenty of restaurants and mini marts to get what you need. And the beach is another few minutes from there.

If you like privacy, don't want to be overlooked, and a place with a sea view then I would recommend The Levels.

Very nice and quiet house, spacious, still easy walk to beach and restaurants

  • 4 of 5

We, couple 50 years, enjoyed it a lot. House is very spacious, nice small swimming pool to fresh up after being out in the heat.

Restaurants and beach are in easy walking distance.

Do not forget a flashlight during the night, the walk up to the house is dark and on a dirt road.

Everything was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Initially, we wanted to stay directly on the beach on a different part of the island, but we are so glad we ended up here and this beautiful home! It's a central location to Old Town/Lighthouse and the pier/downtown Lanta shopping and a five minute scooter ride to the Relax beach area. The home is equipped with everything you could possibly need and offers a very secluded feeling. Chris and Ben were wonderful to work with and were very responsive.

Keine Traumvilla

  • 1 of 5

Die Anlage sieht auf den Bildern deutlich neuer/besser aus, als es in Wirklichkeit der Fall ist. Die Villa war auf die Übergabe nicht vorbereitet und dem Anschein nach mehr als nur ein paar Tage nicht geputzt. Der Pool war schmutzig. Die kleine Küche im Außenbereich konnte man nicht benutzen, da dort der ganze Krempel abgestellt wurde. Der Müll der Vormieter wurde nicht weggeräumt, überall tote Tiere und zum Teil Vogelkot. Selbst eine Kakerlake war in der Villa. Wir mussten selber die Räume putzen, um überhaupt darin übernachten zu können. Es gab nur 4 Duschhandtücher in der Villa. Handtücher für das Abtrocknen der Hände – Fehlanzeige. Wir haben in der Villa nur eine Nacht übernachtet (anstatt 5 Tage) und sind am nächsten Tag ins Hotel gezogen!

Located on the southern tip of South Thailand's Krabi province, Koh Lanta is considered one of Thailand's last easily accessible islands for those seeking to truly escape from the high pace of normal working life. Your choice of transport for arrivals is extensive: speedboat; helicopter; bus; ferry; yacht, you can ensure that your holiday experience begins the moment you start traveling to The Levels.

Koh Lanta is a quiet, laid-back, island very different to other stereotypical, night-life-driven, areas of Thailand. Small bars with western-style nightlife provide options for a late night drink or dance - however, for those looking to party through the night, surrounded by hundreds of other ravers in big, noisy, nightlcubs or bars, Koh Lanta is not for you.

For the westerner who may be a little intimidated by Thai cuisine, the island already boasts restaurants feeding their guests with the finest European dishes. Local shops sell cheeses, hams and other western “oddities” and local bakers bake a choice of the finest different breads, fresh, every day.

The beaches of Lanta have a wonderfully, rustic, unspoilt feel to them. Some of the beaches have bars, restaurants and massage huts to spend money in and others have nothing but palm trees and natural shade to spend your time in.

Koh Lanta is a wonderful base for today’s grown-up backpacker of yesteryear. Kayaking, SCUBA diving, sailing, caving, trekking, snorkelling…. the list is endless and so is the number of islands in Koh Lanta’s archipelago…

To take a day trip off Lanta for the day guarantees some sights that for some may be the first of its kind: white sand beaches, dark tunnels through towering, limestone, cliff faces revealing hidden lagoons and beaches. Waterfalls rearing over the tops of rock faces, hot water bubbleing out of thermal springs and crystal clear rock pools developing in the shallow lowlands of local rainforests.

This is a region where every trip will reveal a new surprise and where you, your family and friends will want to come back again and again!
