It is a Small World!


Us and some previous guests at the Noel Gallagher Gig
Every now and again, Nick and I, go to see bands in Bangkok. Bangkok is a great place to see big bands, because the gigs are smaller, the VIP section is cheaper and you get really close to the band.

This week, we went to see Noel Gallagher's Flying Birds, before going in to the gig, we sat at a table just outside and had a beer or two! A lovely couple asked if they could sit next to us as they were the only seats available. Of course we said yes, and the Thai lady, who spoke wonderful English introduced us to her Japanese boyfriend.

As we chatted more, we discovered they had been to Lanta, so we asked where. She could not remember the name but showed us a picture...... Of our gardens!!!! Turns out we met 3 years earlier. 

Check out how close we got to Noel.

He's Back!

Our first ever booking when we took over Mook Lanta Eco Resort, was from Christian, who was already a longtime repeat guest at the resort.

Since then, he has returned twice a year, every year. Loved by our staff and by many Thais and expats on the island, you truly know the high season has started when he arrives.

Luckily we took his demand for the bar to be expanded seriously, because it was his first question when we met him!
