Lanta Cottage Hotel review

Accommodation: Lanta Cottage Hotel

It is located at Sala Dan, Ko Lanta District, Krabi 81150 Thailand. We had our first getaway here after the travel ban was lifted. Businesses had just started to open, and the entire place felt like it had just woke up from a keep slumber. Going into Lanta Cottage, you’ll see untrimmed plants, dried leaves all over the place, padlocked sheds, and dusty receiving/canteen area.

Room

Nothing fancy about the room, it’s air conditioned and pretty spacious. There’s a mini kitchenette with sink. Plates and utensils are also provided. It’s a family room with one double bed and a bunk bed. Both are pretty hard on the back. But at least they’re not rickety. Please take a look at Lanta Cottage in the video at 4.25.

  • Other room amenities include a flat screen TV, a fridge, a wooden wardrobe, and towels.
  • Complimentaries are the usual coffee and tea, bottled water, and toiletries.

Bathroom

I’m personally not so fond of the bathroom. It is large but the design is not so well-thought of. The toilet is placed very near the wall that you won’t be able to sit well. The bidette spray is placed at the left side of the toilet cramped up in between the toilet and the wall. It’s just way too uncomfortable. It’s not so clean too.

WIFI Connection

Wifi connection is important these days more than ever. Due to the pandemic, several jobs have transitioned online. And we are one of them. However, to our great dismay, this hotel’s Wifi connection had been severed by the provider. We didn’t want to complain thinking it might be an aftermath of the lockdown.

The Pool

Pool is life for our children. They love to hang out by the pool, and have been trying to learn swimming. This hotel’s pool is one of its strength. Kid’s pool is 2.5ft deep, pretty safe even for toddlers. Adult’s pool is 4.5ft deep. Although, not so clean, but we’ve seen worst than it.

Breakfast

Lanta cottage has restaurant area, but didn’t offer breakfast during this time. So we ended up eating in this restaurant overlooking the Bamboo beach. Please watch the video to see what I mean.

Parking Lot

There was no designated parking area. Cars can be parked on any vacant lot any where around the hotel area.

Clientele

Lanta Cottage may be preferred by families or group of friends who prefer to cook or bring their own food. And it could also be a nice choice those who opt for a budget-friendly accomodation.

Price

We booked Lanta Cottage for a little over 60USD, definitely cheap. If you don’t mind a few inconveniences here and there, then, it’s a good choice.

Although it wasn’t what I expected, we were just thankful to be out of the house and enjoy the outdoor. We hope Lanta Cottage can bounced back to its feet.

Empowered Kids Corner: Aspiring Chef

Unexpectedly my daughter, Summer, is very much interested in cooking and baking. My husband and I are hardly the average cooks. But boy how we love food. Anyway, there are times when we cook something  that we learned from our parents, but nothing fancy – veggy nuggets, fruitshakes, or some some exotic flower snacks.  It is something for our family to consume. It isn’t worth bragging about to friends on get-together or worth sharing to my readers.   The same goes to our kitchen.  If I am to describe it, well, it’s dull, boring, and functional. So I am really a bit surprised as to why and how my daughter has become so interested in cooking.  Whatever the reasons behind, one thing is clear, we should never let the opportunity to develop this interest pass.

How did I manage to help my daughter considering the facts that I have limited cooking or baking skills and our kitchen is ill-equipped? This is what I did, and I hope to continue doing.

 

1.  I searched for easy to cook and no-bake recipes. I found this no-sugar recipe, easy, and it has only 6 ingredients from The Frugal Farm Wife (http://frugalfarmwife.com/article/healthy-no-bake-cookies/). Check out her blog for the recipe or you may watch Summer’s Slide.

2. I tried it myself, more than once, to familiarize the procedure and experience it myself.  There are things that one is able to impart well if she has got the experience of doing it herself.

3.  I let her experience bit by bit.  She started just helping out – gathering the ingredients and putting them on the table, beating, stirring, pouring, and measuring.

4.  Then, I let her do it on her on.  The ingredients, measurement, and procedure are written on a white board for her to read and follow.

 

Watch her here

Is there any other way I could help Summer develop her interest in cooking and baking? Your ideas are deeply appreciated. Please feel free to share them on the comment section below.

Introducing the NEW Educents Marketplace

Introducing the NEW Educents Marketplace

I just received an email from the founders of Educents, Kate and Kaitlyn, with some really exciting news. Until today, Educents was a website for parents and educators to take advantage of daily deals. But those deals expired… And there were only 50 deals available at once… I wanted saving money to be even EASIER. Kate and Kaitlyn agreed. So they created the new Educents Marketplace. It’s even easier to discover affordable educational resources that make learning FUN!
