If you're looking for a large villa to rent in a peaceful location near the beach then Temple Villa in Koh Lanta is the perfect place. Especially suited to more than 1 family sharing or groups, the villa is laid out over 3 floors and has 6 bedrooms (5 doubles and 1 triple) and 4 bathrooms.
The private infinity pool is elevated on the first floor with views over the Andaman Sea and nearby Kantiang Beach.
The villa sits tucked away on the end of the road in part of the small Oriental Residensea development of 7 villas. We also have a garden, huge terrace, poolside relaxation room and huge open plan kitchen and living area and covered parking. Children are welcome and whilst we don't advertise as a child-friendly villa this is simply because the accomodation with infinity pool, etc is not child-proof. We often holiday with our own children there and have cots, high chairs, toys and baby bath etc for those travelling with kids.
Situated at the top of a hill with a rainforest backdrop the views from the villa are stunning and we love sitting down for a glass of wine at sunset!
The nearest beach is Kantiang (location of the 5 star Pimalai resort). This beach is a 5 minute walk from the villa (downhill, 10 minutes to go back up the hill!) but if you hire a car you can pop down to the amazing deserted beaches in Southern Lanta in a really quick drive, or just head 1 min to the far end of Kantiang.
Restaurants: With new arrivals in Kantiang in the last year or so dining options are going upmarket (in Koh Lanta terms) - head to Pimalai Seven Seas for a special occasion, the simple thai beach place Same Same but Different for a rustic experience or for clifftop dining the excellent Houben (western food) or Noon Bar for healthy Thai and western food and a great cooking school. Diving and snorkelling is run from ScubaFish at Kantiang and the Pimalai spa offers luxury pampering, or if you prefer to relax village style, head to Arista Spa or Baan Spa.
Children are welcome at our villa and we have two young kids that we often holiday with, so limited kids supplies are provided (cot, high chair, plastic plates and cutlery, playmats, electric socket covers etc). However, the villa isn't childproof and we don't advertise it as such, please take care with small ones around the pool area (ungated) and on the terraces and staircases.
Temple House is our own personal holiday home and we love to share it, if you have any questions please get in touch with me.
From Bangkok fly to Krabi and the villa is approx 2 hours away via car transfer and car ferry. Note transfer times may be longer in peak season.
From Phuket: In high season take a ferry in 3 hours from Phuket to our villa, or drive in approx 4.5 hours
Car rental: We recommend Thai Rent A Car from Krabi airport if you prefer to drive as they have great rates and will give you freedom once in Lanta to explore!
Cleaning: The pool will be cleaned 3 times per week during your stay. The villa will be cleaned on check out. If you require extra cleaning please contact us as we can arrange for it on request
Electricity and Air Con: All bedrooms have air conditioning as well as the living room. The poolside room has a fan. Please use electricity responsibly and take care of the environment
Linen and Towels: House towels are provided but beach towels are limited. We have beach mats in our storage room that guests are welcome to use as well as a small beach umbrella.
Check in: 3pm
Check out: 10am
Our rep will be in Lanta to help you with anything that you need including transfers, tours and maintenance. Other than that we offer a hands off self catering holiday experience that we hope will allow you to truly relax and enjoy Thailand....Read more

“Peaceful and relaxing holiday in fantastic villa”
Left on 11/08/2010 for a stay in August 2010 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Nov 8, 2010Stayed Aug 2010
My wife and I had a wonderful holiday in this villa. We had spent a month travelling round China and wanted our final week away to be a nice, relaxing week in a fantastic villa and that's exactly what we got.
The view from the bedroom across the private pool and out to sea was absolutely lovely. The villa itself was great - spotlessly clean and nicely done up.
The villa is up on a hill looking out to sea and is close to the small 'town' nearby. There are various nice places to get food and drinks on the beach but we really fell in love with a place called Drunen Sailors. It had a really nice feel, the staff were friendly and we could plug back in to reality using their wifi. Also, the smoothies were delicious. We pretty much ended up going there every morning for breakfast and then again later in the evening to watch their nightly video.
Basically if you want a relaxing holiday in a fantastic villa in a lovely little island community then rent this villa. We had a great time.

Fantastic, comfortable, gorgeously decorated and in a stunning location, the villa is a perfect getaway. The view over the bay is so beautiful and the sunset is incredible - prepare to take thousands of photos.
The villa is really close to the village and an easy walk to all of the places to eat and drink, and the local food is delicious! Beautiful beaches, too.
