We were more than happy to spend our Christmas break here. It's the kind of place to stay if you want peace and quiet, and aren't interested in adventures. We read, swam in the beautiful warm, clean waters, walked along the beach which went for miles, and did little else but unwind after a busy year. Christmas time means that... More

Just returned from a superb 10 day stay at this hotel. On arrival we did notice that it was extremely quiet, but being low season this was to be expected. Check-in was speedy, the bell boy showed us to our room and explained the controls. Room was wonderful and spacious with a sunken bath and a spacious walk-in shower. We... More

This is an absolutely lovely place to stay in Khao Lak. If you're looking for something with a bit of character you will love this place. It has a very rainforest/jungle-like atmosphere and beautiful grounds. You can spot wildlife pretty easily living in the grounds such as geckos, lizards and we saw a snake! The staff are wonderful. Incredibly friendly,... More

Lovely - My partner and I spent two weeks here back in the end of April – which is possible not the best time to go as some of the bars were closed and there were not many people around, we often were the only couple in the bars and restaurants. Hotel settings are gorgeous with a lot of trees... More

Just spent 10 nights at this hotel, the grounds were lovely, set in a forest, with grassy area near the sea.The hotel has lots of steps and ramps, and as been said not suitable for people with mobility problems. The rooms were spacious, with all amenities, except we only had one bar of soap, so had to remember to take... More

Just come home from a two week stay at the Khao Lak Merlin Resort. The hotel lives up to the previous ratings by other guests. Rooms are modern, spacious and have everything you need. Only a few appeared to have sea views but the rainforest setting and multiple swimming pools give a variety of positions and pleasant enough views. We... More

Stayed in a deluxe pool view room, triple share for three adults with kingbed plus a rollaway which was very comfortable. Large room with all the usual amenities expected for a hotel in this category. Spacious grounds with plenty of space for everyone whether families or couples. A few minutes walk from some shops and restaurants. Breakfast was the usual... More

Rooms very spacious, overlooking main pool and beach. Air con worked well and was quiet. 2 bottles of water every day plus fresh pool and bath towels. Very... More

Plenty of restaurants within 5-10 mins walk also a couple of small supermarkets. My only gripe was we left the cleaner 100+ baht each day and on our last day... More
