Koh (island in Thai) Lanta Island is located in the Andaman Sea in the southern Thai province of Krabi. We are located near Malaysia. Koh Lanta is covered in jungle and is one of Thailand’s least developed islands. The population is roughly 90% Muslim and 10% Buddhist. This resort was built 15 years ago and is still owned by a wealthy Thai couple out of Bangkok. On call motorized buggies ply the hillside lanes picking up and delivering guests between their villas and the different pools, restaurants and beach.
Our villa is literally at the top of the resort, backing into the jungle. Monkeys spy down on us from the trees looking for food ops. Saw a 2 ft. long monitor lizard (they can grow to 6 ft.). Also saw a green tree snake off our deck.
