Description - Villa and Resort Facility:
The resort has a lush garden of 400 sqm with a 5 x 10 meter swimming pool that offers a panoramic view of the surrounding rain forest and mountains. The villa's total living area of 92 sqm comprises a spacious open floor for a living room, dinning area, fully equipped kitchen and bathroom on the ground floor, and an individually air-conditioned cozy loft that is best suited as bedroom for children due to its low ceiling. A king size bed placed on the ground floor as well as 2 single beds at the loft are all comfy beds of 5-star quality ensuring maximum comfort and a good nights sleep. The villa features a spacious room interior with high vaulted ceiling with floor-to-ceiling windows that garnish the in-room living with a picturesque scenery of tropical garden and mountain. The pool-front private deck is a perfect place to relax and read or enjoy outdoor dinning.
Location and the Beach:
The villa is peacefully nestled on a secluded land within a 5-minute short walk to Long Beach. Long beach is one of a few sandy beaches found on Koh Lanta and its shallow water is best suited for swimming. Many considers Long Beach as one of the best beaches on the island for the quietness and its 4km-long stretch that makes it never crowded even in the tourism peak season. Facing the west, the beach is just a perfect location for watching a spectacular sunset. Our location holds a perfect balance - it's close to the beach yet distant enough to avoid a mass on the beach. The villa is also conveniently located with an easy access to a variety of dinning options. There are 9 restaurants, for both Thai and western cuisine, located all within 3 minute on foot. Bars and restaurants on the beach are found within 5-10 minute walking distance. A mini-supermarket located next to the facility supplies items for day-to-day needs, fresh fruits and cooking ingredients including some imported products.
Housekeeping is provided daily at free of charge. Booking various activities, tours, transports and scooter/car rentals can be easily done by the tour-desk service available at the resort reception. Our receptionist speaks excellent English and has a full knowledge of the island to provide all kinds of information guests may need. The owner also lives at the resort and is available at all time.
We are just one-email away if any further information is required and look forward to hearing from our future guests!...Read more

We had a chance to stay in Escape Cabins and it was the best choice ever! The two floor apartament was beautiful and perfectly equipped, the swimming pool and the garden just fabulous. Every service recommended by Yuko was fantastic (restaurants, motorbikes rental, snorkeling trip) and she was very helpful. We already miss this place! If we ever come back to Koh Lanta we'll certainly stay there again! We could come back only FOR this place :)

This is the second time staying and reviewing for Escape Cabins in Koh Lanta. My first experience with Escape cabins completely surpassed any expectations I had for any type of accommodations while traveling. Recommended by a trusted friend, I quickly learned that small and hospitable businesses such as Escape cabins made my stay a memorable one, and made me want to return in the future.
Arranging my second stay at Escape, was even more easier than the first time as I referenced my name and when I stayed there last, Yuko immediately remembered me, which made it very easy to make arrangements. Yuko arranged something very quickly for me and it turned out to be the unit (cottage) I wanted to stay during my first visit. The hospitality and ease of organizing/booking was second nature to Yuko making it a very smooth transition so I could quickly begin to enjoy my stay.
The cottage unit is the largest of the 9 units and is suitable for families with children or with a group of friends. Everything that you could want from home had already been considered in the design and facilities available for the unit. A full kitchen a large bathroom and large living (indoor.outdoor) space is available. It simply was everything you wanted and needed in a place when traveling especially if you want to stay for a little while. It's much harder to travel around especially with a family and Escape offers an excellent tranquil space to relax and set up as home base while traveling or vacationing. The biggest advantage I found from the cottage is that it was a space large enough for more than 2 people, and that it was a space that you could quite easily be more than happy to relax with all the amenities from home and not feel like you need to be doing something. The feeling of staying in the cottage is far from being "stuck" in a hotel room with nothing to do and nothing to eat.

We stayed at Cottage, one of the villas at Escape Cabins. The service from owner Yuko was excellent - we were greeted on arrival, she immediately helped us plan our activities for the next few days, making recommendations based on the time and budget we had in mind. The place itself was very quiet - it's a very short walk in from the road, which did wonders at creating a peaceful environment - so no traffic sounds, just the wind blowing through the trees. Very sleep-inducing. :)
The villa was in excellent condition, very clean - it does get a bit warm in the day, but that's only because the sun really shines in Koh Lanta like every day is its last; all we needed to do was pop the aircon on for an hour or so before we intended to head to bed and the house got nice and cool. Standing fans were also thoughtfully provided. Indoor areas were spacious, excellent for just lounging about and watching TV; husband was of course very happy with the cable services (meaning football), I enjoyed the mini kitchen, which was small but well laid out with all we needed - gas stove, fridge, washing up area; perfect for cooking meals for a small family, or for simply slicing up fruits from the market.Pool was just a few metres away, and lounge chairs were provided for dripping off and just enjoying the mountain scenery.
Breakfast was provided via vouchers at a great restaurant just a couple of minutes' walk from the cabins; Kritsana was easily one of the better restaurants we had tried in Koh Lanta. Good Thai food, not too expensive, and clean with an open kitchen concept I really liked.
Also a 5-10 min walk to the beach - Long Beach, which was fantastically beautiful, white sand, rubbish free, lots of families around but not too overcrowded. Shallow waters great for swimming. All in all, it was a great spot to completely unwind; Yuko took care of things so all we needed to do was let the very laid back vibe of Koh Lanta seep in.

We stayed for over a month and what a great place only made better by the great staff and owner Yuko has built a fantastic place and team. . Very accommodating, helpful and a level of attention to detail that I don't think you would easily find on koh Lanta.
We stayed in the largest cabin with the mezzanine floor and had a lovely view to the pool. Our infant stayed upstairs and it was just great. It was very large and the high ceiling really made the place so spacious and we actually spent a lot of time indoors and then popped out to the pool or our patio.
We had a large kitchen and a storage room and a dining room.
We would have loved to stay longer but our visa expired. If we end up back in Koh Lanta another time we will certainly consider seriously staying at Escape.
Good - staff amazing. lovely cats.large space in cabin. kitchen. decor. poolside.
Bad - none.
Its not a larger hotel or resort, but a small boutique set of rooms and villas. You dont have a restaurant on site, but you really don't need one as within 2 mins you can be at approx 5 restaurants just down the driveway.

This place is perfect. Spacious, cool in every sense of the word. I/we (father, daughter and myself) simply can't fault the cottage. The living area has ample room with tv/dvd and audio tech. The kitching/dinner has everything you require.
Everything is very tasteful but unpretencious.

We stayed at Yuko's place for 3 months after having found it over internet. And YES you get what you see! The Cottage is very comfortable, with great service for the perfect host Yuko, and plenty of space. The kitchen is well equipped, even though we ended up just making breakfast there. Just across the street you find Krua Kritsana - so there is no meaning in cooking... Well Yuko, Dreamy Spa, cheap laundry and cleaning service (cleaning included), yoga with Mona and Krua Kritsana make your life very nice - a true holiday. At Escape Cabins you see the nice pool, and the beatuiful forrest/jungle, and also a piece of normal Thai life not far away. Everything is close, but also far away if you want some peace. Walking down to the beach, just crossing the road, and you enter what we realized is the best part of Long Beach. And you are not too far away from Relax Bay, which we enjoyed (yoga, restaurant and Shiva's eyes)! Our Thaimout at Escape Cabins was just what we were looking for!
