I drove up to Khao Lak to visit with some friends that were there for a week, but I stayed in another hotel. I was a walk in and this hotel gave me a better price than what was showing up in google searches without asking for it, the rooms are small cottages with lots of separation between them in... More

Located just across the road to the beach, the hotel is very easy to spot. The staffs and breakfast were very nice. The room (Deluxe with pool view) is bigger than what I thought. With big and clean pool, the stay is very enjoyable. The pier to Tachai & Similan Islands is 1 hour drive away

This hotel is lovely, lots of pools and gardens, close to the beach, and bars and restaurants. Breakfast is fabulous! My room initially smelled a bit musty, I think this was the air con. The biggest let down was the attitude of the staff, they didn't want to direct me to my room (the room numbers aren't sequential), they point... More

The best rooms in the Fanari hotel, Courtyard zone, are on the ground floor with pool access. Location of hotel is between the main shopping/dining area and the sea. Will need to walk further north to the beach as the beach near hotel is not accessible due to erosion. There 2 other Fanari resorts close by. One is on the... More

Average hotel with a small pool area. Another pool (with not-so-clean water) is near the bungalows. Distance to the nearest beach is about 100 m or more. Not exactly the best location if you want to enjoy the beach instead of pool. Breakfast was good (though little insects bothered us daily despite of the fans..) Have met friendlier hotel staff...

- If this review is read and helpful please tick 'YES' below to 'Helpful Review' I wish I knew the following when I selected this hotel: 1. It's way over priced for what it is compared to any hotel in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, USA, etc. Because the price of CAD$100 per night was too high for the room and... More

Weekend at Fanari resort was such a nice time. Nice and polite staff. Upon check in and additional 500 payed, we have got beach front room with spectacular view and straight acces to the sea. Nice moments in the evening on the veranda at the sunset. Quiet surroundings. There is not much more, I could wish for the money paid.... More
