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

We stayed here Courtyard zone for 1500 bhat per day for 5 days. Good: close to "beach" Bad: 1. The beach at this location of Khao Lak isn't really anything you would want to spend any time at... 2. Do NOT trust the pictures on here. As mentioned before; fanari is 2 resorts. Maybe the other is recommendable? But that's... 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

Decent location. We stayed at the courtyard. Good value for the money. Short stroll to the beach. Close to restaurants, bars, etc.. Nice big pool. We left only because some people checked in with extremely noisy kids at the pool all day.. Reception had poor English skills but we could work it out. They really were good to us without... More

After reading good reviews about this Resort we decided to give it a try during our trip to Khao Lak, we were not disappointed. The hotel is situated quite close to the beach but not exactly by the seaside. A few minor niggles - WiFi did not work in our room, the drain in the bathroom was rather smelly, but... More

Such a happy moment at this hotel. Charming hotel with the friendly staff. Various choice for Breakfast. Hotel location is absoultely for real vacation.Nice beach and quiet corner. Cleanliness of the room is good. Bed is spacious .. Wifi is not available 1st day then 2nd day is available. Would be nice if hotel will provide soap in the room.

My wife and I stayed at the Fanari Courtyard for 10 days Oct/Nov, the resort is in a good Location, close to resturants, bars, and the Beach. The staff were friendly but lacked communicatons skills, it was difficult to get your message across but once you did they were very helpful. Our only complaint was the lighting in the room,...
