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

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

On arrival we were welcomed into a large grand entrance and were promptly checked into our room by friendly reception staff. We followed the cheerful porter through the sprawling hotel, the grounds are full of flower and fauna which is home to some of the awesome "locals". The grounds are very pretty with a stream running right through to the... More

The food was excellent and the staff extremely friendly and very helpful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Khao Lak is a very beautiful resort with spectacular beaches which... More

This hotel is built on a hillside so lots of ramps and steps - definitely NOT for someone with walking difficulties but superb in every other way. A few minutes by bus south of Khao Lak and on a gorgeous sandy beach the main reception is large and cool. The Superior (= standard) rooms are quite big with comfortable beds,... More
