Booked two nights initially and have now booked 5 more. This is a great place to stay in Khao Lak. Booked a garden view bungalow room in the courtyard section and was upgraded to a pool access room by the very friendly desk staff. No concerns about privacy, there are privacy sheers as well as darkening curtains for sleeping. Room... More

Stayed here for 5 weeks (May-June) as completed volunteer work in Khuk Kak. The staff is super friendly and most speak English. Our room had a good-sized balcony, which overlooked the pool. The location is great and only minutes to the sea. It's about 3kms to Nang Thong where there's loads of cheaper restaurants (than in Bang Niang) and also... More

Jennifer _and_ Erik - we do not agree! We have a re currently staying in a Courtyard bungalow and we are really liking it.We would DEFINITELY not stay in the seaside part. Here it is tropical and yet it is airy and cool (ish) on those very hot days. True - we have got a center of the garden path... More

First of all I need to point out, there are two different Fanari Resort in Khao Lak, Seaside and Courtyard. I definitely do NOT recommend courtyard, Seaside resort might on the other hand be good. We stayed at the Khao Lak Resort in Khao Lak prior to this place and Khao Lak resort was so much nicer. Fanari was a... More

Very good hotel with a perfect location. The wifi was so so, and did only work for about half our stay, but we used the free wifi on the beach bar (about three min walking from the hotel) were we spend our days. The location is perfect and it is quiet and nice during the night time. Also, the breakfast... More

Our second time at Fanari- just as good as our previous stay. We had adjoining bungalows in the courtyard area which we think is less crowded and overlooked than the main part of the hotel. Rooms are spacious and comfortable with efficient ac, fridge, good bathroom and private terrace. Breakfast ok- didn't have any other meals there as there are... More

We enjoyed our week at Fanari (seafront), although it was a big stretch for the budget. The room (a family apartment) was fabulous - spacious and comfortable with two bathrooms (though these were a bit cramped) and a living area. Daily room cleaning was thorough and they were generous in supplying drinking water (unlike other hotels we've visited in Thailand).... More

Me and my family booked the Fanari for a weeks stay! The staff was excellent, caring and friendly! Two pools, nice restaurant! It was quite quit, but we were there in between low and highseason. A few small things would be better, for ex... a waterheater, hairdryer, etc.. but now I´m just picky ;D It would gladly recommend this hotell!
