Ranis Lodge is a truly unique and magical place; the result of a dream that formed during our lifelong career in luxury hotels all over the world and the vision to create a a resort destination that is incredibly genuine, a warm reflection of local culture and lifestyle paired with features and amenities for today’s Global Nomads.
Welcome to our home.
We spent our lives in hotels and as fabulous a luxurious room can be, we never felt it is the right place to truly relax; to spend a week or two switching off from the world.
It is nice to have that little extra space, to have a separate bedroom to allow your partner to sleep in, to have a kitchen to be able to prepare a light snack when you feel like it, to have the privacy of a large terrace and your own garden.
All of our 5 villas are free-standing and fully self-contained; ideally suited for a long weekend as well as for an extended vacation. The contemporary design respects simplicity and functionality without compromise on luxury and comfort; providing a genuine sense of place was one of our key goals in the design process.
The villa’s location guarantees a wonderful view over an abundance of paddy fields as well as the blue waters that are surrounding the outlaying islands.
All our villas offer air condition in the bedrooms and ceiling fans in bedroom, living room and veranda.
Each villa is about 50square meter (or 550sf) and feature bedroom, living room with integrated kitchen, bathrooms with indoor/outdoor shower and a large veranda overlooking rice paddies and the Andaman Sea.
And being hoteliers, we not only provide the amenities of a hotel (shampoo, soap, purified water, high quality linen and terry) and distraction from the abundant nature in the form of Satellite TV and free Wifi; we also stock the kitchen with appliances, utensils, chinaware and essential food stuff.
Ranis Lodge is a far cry from typical vacation rentals on the islands, we tried our best to create a true intimate resort feel.
The infinity pool offers ample space for sunbathing and relaxing whilst gazing over the tree top canopy down to the paddies; borrow a book from our in-house ‘library’ and swing away in one of our hammocks and cozy corners which are dotted throughout the resort. The abundance of bird species and the occasional monkeys will undoubtedly keep you entertained.
Eat, drink and relax
Ranis Lodge would not be complete without our own little Al Fresco eatery-
We utilize the lands of Ranis Lodge to plant our own fruits, vegetables and herb which are incorporated in our cooking. Furthermore, we also keep a large flock of native chickens that provide us with a constant supply of freshly laid eggs for your breakfast.
While breakfast at The Balai is included in the stay at Ranis Lodge, you can choose if you want to join us for dinner and we select the freshest ingredients available on the local market.
The menu is a reflection of our journeys and can be tailor made to your tastes and desires.
The Balai is open every day for breakfast and 4-5 days for dinner.

Другие важные подробности

The natural setting of Ranis Lodge comes with visits from local wildlife. Whilst there is no danger at all, we urge our guests not to feed any wildlife. Monkeys are always on the lookout for something to eat, but at this point they are too shy to come in close contact with humans. Our desire is to keep it that way to protect both your belongings and the animal. Should monkeys get accustomed to people and enter the villas, we will have no choice but contacting the villagers to eliminate them.

We are a family of three who enjoy the simple things in life: travelling, meeting people, cooking and relaxing at home. Hosting guests in hotels used to be our profession for over twenty five years. It has now turned into welcoming guests at Ranis Lodge. Our daughter has inherited our passion for hospitality and is blossoming to be quite a host at a young age. We keep a flock of chickens and a cat at our rural hillside location. Our fruit trees are still young and we hope to share them with you in a few years time. We would love the opportunity to welcome you to our home.
