We booked this hotel last year when it was top spot on the Trip Advisor ratings. Since then, it seems to have had its fair share of traumas. Firstly, Marcus, the owner, had a stroke, then the family had to get rid of the manager, Bruno, because he allegedly, drank too much and ran the hotel down. But now, Marcus's... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights, when we were evacuated from our live-aboard trip due to rough weather. Long story short, we arrived in Bang Niang around 18h and were both still feeling rather seasick and therefore just needed to get to a hotel as quick as possible. So whilst we had a... More

Our stay at Khao Lak Riverside Resort did not get off to the most auspicious start. Like a previous reviewer, we arrived late at night to find the resort locked and barred and in total darkness. We hammered, we called, we telephoned and finally roused a guest who was pleasant and sympathetic but who was unable to help further. After... More

We stayed here a couple of years ago when everything was superb; so we were a bit puzzled by our rather chaotic arrival, then sad to discover that Marcus (co-owner and organiser) has been recovering from a stroke. Shortly after we arrived Marcus' wife Ja took over the day to day running of the hotel, with support from Marcus (his... More

It is such a shame that this hotel is dropping down the trip advisor reviews as I am sure when it was number 1, it deserved it's position as it has a beautiful location, the rooms are modern but with some little Thai influence so you don't think you are anywhere in the world, the pool area is quiet and...

Booked a room at Khao Lak Riverside in August 2013 for our stay in Feb 2014. My boyfriend and I never actually ended up sleeping at this hotel. Let me tell you why. 3 weeks before leaving for our holiday I email and ask for a transfer (as their website states they can arrange). One week later, still no reply.... More

A wonderfully spacious hotel and grounds in the nicest possible location in front of the very best part of the beach - just wonderful! The hotel is run in a laid-back style by owners Bruno and Nam (DO get Nam to book your taxi....) and is provides all that you could wish for in a delightful location right by the... More

Just returned from Khao Lak and a 10 days stay in this hotel. Whilst the hotel rooms are beautifully clean and well-appointed, the resort itself a haven of tranquility and perfect for the superb beach, together with access to excellent beach restaurants and massage huts, it does NOT deserve the 5 star TripAdvisor rating it currently enjoys. The resort is... More

Chose this oasis of calm after reading positive reviews and we were not disappointed. What a glorious and peaceful place to recharge the batteries after 7 week trip. What a position to gaze at the sea and the river. Location wise, it's a short walk to the beginning of shops and bars etc., but take a torch as the last... More
