This is a nice resort, directly located on the Andaman Sea and it really looks impressive with lots of plants, trees and the biggest pool I have ever seen. The staff is very kind but too bad that some of them don’t speak proper English but I think you see that a lot in Thailand. The rooms are nice with... More

I normally just read tripadvisor reviews but never actually comment. After an amazing stay at JW I feel compelled to write about it. Having stayed previously at the banyan tree, I can certainly say that this was better. Atmosphere, guests and staff were all made our 10 night stay great. This was put to the test when yesterday when there... More

Hotel is nice, getting a bit older and some renewal would be required. Pool is long, if you pick family pool access room, you can literally jump into the water from your terrace and swim across the resort (long route!). Beach is nice, sand, kayaks available. Breakfast is large and one of the richest I have ever seen. No need... More

Have just returned from a week at the jw Marriott khao lak. This is a great relaxing resort for families, probably a bit boring for others as the resort is away from town and not much happening other than activities organised by resort. The pool was amazing as most reviews state. We only ate at the resort Thai restaurant once... More

This place was amazing. We were picked up from the airport by there personal shuttle. This I highly reccommend as the hotel is more than an hour from the hotel. So get to the hotel and the staff was amazing, very friendly. Our room was right off the pool with access from our porch. The food was great and again... More

I enjoyed a 5 night stay at this wonderful hotel. The hotel boasts an amazing swimming pool which encompasses the whole grounds. I have never witnesses such an impressive pool of all the 5 star hotel I've stayed in around the world. The rooms are spacious and all have balconies. Breakfast is good and there are many restaurants in and... More

Even though it was quite a long drive from Phuket airport, but once we are settled in the memorable experience starts. We got upgraded to the pool access room 1018, within 15 mins of checking we found oursleves in a free flow pool. In the afternoon, I played tennis with a knocker at a reasonable price. Overall the hotel encourages... More

The staff were very helpful in getting us a room near friends and that met our needs. The lazy river is fantastic to swim around in but doesn't have any current so expect a small amount of effort from one pool bar to the other. The breakfast is open until 11 which is great to sleep in on the comfortable... More
