As long as you have a car or motorcycle it's great to stay there. We were there together with the parents of my boyfriend and even for the off-season we had a great price deal, which was better than the offer on budget-booking-sites on the web - just call there and ask what they can do with the price.

We travel around south of thailand for a month and we book on this hotel because we read a lot of good things so we decided to book here after we went to Khao Sok. But unfortunately we got disappointed because we expect for something good but its not. Communicating with the staff in this hotel are terribly bad. We... More

We have just returned from spending 11 wonderful days in Khao Lak staying at The Riverside. The staff (Ja, Peter, Kittiya, Arunsri & cleaning staff) were simply amazing and could not do enough to serve and help us. The room was spotless and cleaned every day. Breakfast (taken on a terrace overlooking the pool area) was a la carte, and... More

First of all let me tell you Khao Lak beach is simply superb. This area suffered a lot during Tsunami but now recovered. Sometimes in Dark you still fear that time!!! This place is awesome and must visit place. Khao lak is more of a Family Vacation destination and not like pattaya. This is decent place. Do visit national park... More

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
