Cousin Resort has risen, not from the ashes, but from the rubble that was once Ban Bangniang Beach. The tsunami of 2014 totally devastated this area - the pool at Cousin Resort was used as the reference point to work out where every other resort or restaurant once stood. It is so peaceful lying by the pool outside our bungalow:... More

We stayed here for two nights after a live aboard. The positives are that the garden bungalow itself was very spacious: it had an outside seating area, inside table and chairs, separate bedroom, separate kitchenette with large fridge, toaster and kettle, and large if basic bathroom. The location is ok- about 5-10 mins to the beach (depending on how hot... More

As much as we liked the resort we were not delighted by our room. When my daughter booked she asked for a family bungalow, the owner said yes to this and then sneakily confirmed he had booked the family apartment without clarifying the difference. The difference was that we were up a flight of stone stairs over the staff quarters... More

We have stayed in very cheap and very expensive places in Thailand, and felt this place was excellent value for money. It is a 5 min walk from the beach and a large variety of restaurants, bars, shops and the market (mon, weds, sat) is within a 15 min walk. We booked 3 nights but ended up staying longer, and...

Only slept two nights here but would stay longer if possible. Good value for money, nice clean rooms, garden and pool. Friendly staff. The only downside is the restaurant, nothing special. I recommend that you go to the beach or take a taxi into town for dinner.

We have stayed every year since 2008 in the Cousin Resort so admit to being prejudiced in its favour. However, as we know Khao Lak so well we believe the resort still represents great value for money with its clean and comfortable accommodation with a variety of options for different party sizes; its lovely pool and decent restaurant; its location...

Bare bones room - not a picture on the walls, beige paint, weak ac. Yes it is lower priced and after booking I understand why. Maybe I got what I paid for and have to take it up a notch. But as they say "I only came to sleep in the room" (true) I got over the disappointment and concentrated... More

We spent three nights in this resort in Khao Lak and were very satisfied with our stay. The resort is well situated, just minutes walk from the beach and a little further from the town centre (but everything is in walking distance). The bungalows are spacious, clean and comfortable and the pool area is lovely. The owners were very friendly... More

Returning for our Christmas holiday after our stay in May. We were pleased again with the service and the location. There was a lot more staff obviously due to the busy season and the restaurant was open, but the resort never felt overcrowded and there was always spaces around the pool when we wanted a quiet day. We had a... More
