Phra Ae Village

Phra Ae Village & Long Beach
Koh Lanta is not a large island, but with over 18 beaches people often struggle to decide which beach is for them. We believe that Phra Ae village, located on Long Beach, offers something for everyone all within walking distance from the resort.

Mook Lanta Eco Resort is nestled between the village (on the main road) and the beach, both being less than 90 metres away. We also benefit from being located in a dip between the two, which means the noise of the road and parties on the beach or in the village don't keep us awake.
Late on a Saturday, it is Korner Bar Night
From reception, we have a small path to the most southerly end of Long Beach. Long Beach is over 3km long, and never feels busy, so you can always find a secluded spot for sunbathing and you are never far away from a bar or a restaurant. The first bar you arrive at. Korner Bar is located here and is the only place to be late on a Saturday night. Further along is Pangea Bar, where you can enjoy sunset cocktails and their  'Deep Sunday' parties.

Phra Ae Village offers plenty of shopping options, with 7-11 for the basics, The Living Room for Bakery products, Tourist shops for swimwear, inflatables etc and the very popular, OK Salon for haircuts.
There are plenty of activities within the village; Lanta Animal Welfare, the number 1 activity according to TripAdvisor, is just outside the main village and offers tours every hour and the opportunity to walk a dog or two or just cuddle a kitty in Kitty City. Lanta Paintball, offer Paintball in their purpose built war zone, a climbing wall, slacklining and a beautiful beer garden if you just want to sit and watch. Dive and Relax are located in the heart of the village and offer speedboat diving from the beach.

There are around 30 restaurants in Phra Ae village, offering romantic dinners (Red Snapper), family friendly dining (Patty's Secret Garden) and also street food around 7/11.

If you a planning a night out, then head to the northerly end of the village where for food you have the wonderful 'May's Kitchen' with delicious thai food and sumptuous BBQ, Kindee for modern Thai food.

Then move to Joker Bar, just next door, for an excellent next stop for a cocktail or two. Then, depending on the day of the week choose from Irish Embassy Bar, for quiz night and entertainment (singers, games and parties), Funky Monkey for some Karaoke and Mojo's for some late night parties.
