Baan Phu Lae Resort is a small and friendly beach resort offering traditional-style, beach-front bungalows with breathtaking sea views out over Bamboo Bay beach. You can choose a double or twin room with fan or air-conditioning. All rooms have en-suite bathrooms with toilet and shower. The name ‘Baan Phu Lae’ comes from ‘Baan’ meaning ‘Home’, ‘Phu’ meaning ‘Mountain’, and ‘Lae’ – ‘Beach’. Put together it becomes “home close to mountain and beach” which is exactly what it is.
They have a great little open-air restaurant which is quirky and cool in equal measures. Many an afternoon has been whiled away here drinking a beer or two, chatting and basking in the natural beauty of the nearby beach. The restaurant has a large menu and serves some fantastic Thai dishes which are cooked to perfection. There are also a few Western dishes but its the Thai food that really is lovely here.
There are some old style games including Connect Four, Scrabble and Backgammon available in the restaurant. Ban Phu Lae also offers their guests traditional Thai massage, taxi and boat transfers around Lanta Island, Thai cooking courses, motorbike rental, internet corner and a gift shop. They are also happy to arrange day trips for scuba diving, snorkeling, elephant trekking etc. Nothing is too much trouble for them.
PLUS – Inexpensive, yet tastefully and cheerfully decorated, simple beachfront bungalows (they are bright yellow) with charming, friendly and helpful staff. Great restaurant and bar located directly on the beach. The vibe at Baan Phu Lae Resort is a glimpse of island backpacker life as it was ten years ago – a chilled-out experience not to be missed.
MINUS – Very quiet location (although you could probably have a great party in the bar with the right mix of guests) and the road is fairy tricky to negotiate, especially after dark. The beach can be a little rocky at low tide.
