Friendly smiling staff, prompt service and requests fulfilled happily. Our meals were generous, tasty and well presented. Our room was clean and spacious. Our shower had views of the pool our balcony overlooked and I loved hearing the birds singing away quietly in the mornings. We particularly enjoyed our half hour beach walk end to end each morning before one... More

A wonderful hotel. Our adjoining rooms were perfect. Immaculate, quiet and beautiful. The design of the hotel celebrates its location at the edge of the rain forest. There is greenery and dappled shade from the most beautiful plants and bananas ripening on the branch. The food is some of the best we have ever eaten and so much choice from... More

(fair sized queue at arrivals) check in was swift and luggage at the room within minutes. Had upgraded to a deluxe room. The room was large, very clean, lovely bathroom. Was slightly disappointed with... More

We stayed in the merlin for 5 night in December. It was place where you would go to relax. Not a lot of bars or restaurants in this part of kho lak which is why we went set in a forest and on the beach in a stunning area.

Stayed here for 10 days and altogether, the hotel grounds are quite nice and well looked after. Our room was comfortable and spacious, but what was really strange to us was the wardrobe placed inside the bathroom – quite impractically. We only had breakfast at the hotel (eating out is much cheaper and you get more authentic cuisine), which was... More

Just back from a 2 week holiday in Khao Lak Thailand staying at the Merlin Beach resort. We travelled from Larnaca, Cyprus via Dubai to Phuket. A lengthy stopover in Dubai but a hotel provided in Dubai by Emirates Airlines. Close to the airport with comfortable rooms and breakfast before the next leg of our journey. The Merlin Resort is...

A big thank you to All the staff @ the Merlin. We stayed here over Christmas & New Year 2014-15. We had the deluxe room and what a good choice this was. Having stayed at other merlin resorts, I would say the pool access rooms are not as good at this hotel. The staff spent three days preparing for New... More
