I and my hubby stayed at the tha lane bay villa for 5 nights from 3rd jan to 8th jan 2010 for our hooneymoon. Its a very beautiful place to stay at.. it is indeed a dream.. it is very well maintained and is very clean. rik n mon with their assistants do their best to keep you happy. it is them who make the stay very special. excellent food by mon n the assistants, boat trip to hong island, shopping, massage and elephant trekking arrangements by rik..
it is faaaarrrr better than is seen in the photographs..
n yah.. its remote but rik will drive you anywhere you want to go and pick you back up.. so no worries.. al you have to do is to ask rik to take you to happening places and he will do it for you.. :)
we visited ao nang a couple of times and tasted food at different places.. but believe me .. wat mon cooks is the best.. nothing can beat that.. :)
in al it was an awesome experience and we have already planned to visit it again.. :-)
