I had gone to the JW Marriott Khao Lak last year! And that's where I was proposed by my husband now :) Cannot every forget that place! Extremely relaxing! The staff is friendly and the food is great! The Spa is amazing too... Do not miss the fresh and chilled Coconut Water!

Our fourth visit to Khao Lak and our second visit to The Riverside. The staff and personal service is wonderful and how nice to be offered an a la carte breakfast with unlimited choice on the small private terrace overlooking the pool. The bedrooms are as good as anything you could wish for and the housekeeping standards are immaculate. If... More

The location of the hotel is remote which makes it a very peaceful place to relax but has the downside of being a bit detached from shops, bars and restaurants, other than the facilities at the nearby lovely beach where delicious local food is available. The hotel is small and, during our stay, far from full which enhanced the peaceful... More

I spent one night at the Riverside in January after a dive trip, and had a great stay. The service was informal yet impeccable - I felt like I was staying at a good friend's beach-side mansion. My room was spacious, good-as-new clean, bright and cheery. The hotel itself is situated beside an estuarine (not brackish or smelly though) stream... More

Very large rooms, good for sharing with kids, nice spacious bathroom and comfortable balcony overlooking great pool. Just a short walk down the path on you're on the beach. We had a great time, next time we'll stay longer!

We stayed here over the New year, what a lovely hotel. Peter and his staff are really friendly and welcoming. A small walk to a beautiful beach that has an array of nice restaurants and bars. Khao lak is a lovely destination and the hotel is perfect in its relaxed approach. Our room was simply stunning! Would definitely recommend it.... More

If you are searching for a quiet and peaceful location in an extraordinary calm atmosphere where you can heel and charge your batteries this is a great place to stay at. We very much appreciated the peacefulness and the location close to the beach. There... More

...that's seriously how I felt here! Two nights and three days of bliss. I originally booked this place because of the story told in other reviews... I felt for the family that owned the place, so thought I'd show a wee bit of support! How glad am I that I did! Clean, light, airy, spacious, divine rooms. Warm, welcoming, loving... More

loved the great pool, clean spacious rooms and fantastic made to order breakfast. Peter, the concierge is incredibly helpful. you are in good hands with all the questions you might have. the hotel has the feeling of a hidden gem, close to the hustle and bustle but peaceful and quiet.

We stayed overnight at the Khao Lak Riverside Resort and Spa after a week long live a board out in the Similans. Even though our stay was brief, we really loved our time there. Peter, the manager, was an excellent host and extremely attentive to our needs. We needed a taxi to the Phuket airport to catch a late morning... More
