We found this Resort on the Internet and what a super find. Its situated on a raised piece of land which fronts on to a beautiful white sandy beach and warm sea! The hotel is built in the traditional Thai style and consists of apartments and bungalows. The Resort had two restaurants (both outside) with a substantial menu - food... More

Khaolak Merlin Resort is lovely resort for a relaxing holiday. Stayed here with my wife and daughter in early October.Tropical gardens abound around the swimming pools. Please note that it is a 1 hour drive from Phuket International Airport. I don't know whether that due to the wet season, but the resort needs some decent maintenance undertaken for example: Outside... More

We stayed here with our 2 boys aged 5 & 7. If you want peace & quiet & don't mind trekking up & down steep steps a LOT them this is the place for you! It is built into a hill so is very spread out with no direct route around the resort. We didn't mind this but probably not... More

We came here in August and had a brilliant time. As it was during the rainy season (only one or two short tropical showers a day) there were few people in the hotel. Our room was immaculate, large and with a sunken bath. We had a balcony that looked out onto the gardens - I felt as though I was... More

We stayed here for eleven nights in August. Lovely natural setting and right on the beach. Great rock pools when the tide is out to forage around in and look for shells. Room was nice and clean with a pitched roof (upper floor). Not immaculate but mouldy grout around bath doesn't spoil my holiday. Food always quick and tasty. Reasonably... More

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
