Spent 8 nights at the Shambhala in February 2014 with two friends. It was everything we'd hoped for: small and friendly, locally-owned with wonderful local staff, spotlessly clean, comfortable rooms, a small but perfectly formed pool area and fantastic restaurant right on the water's edge. This isn't the place for 5-star facilities, but if you want to ensure you actually... More

Stayed at this Thai family hotel from 19th Feb for 4 nights with my husband and 13 year old daughter. Had adjoining rooms overlooking the sea. The location is simply perfect if you just want to chill out and relax. Food at the hotel is excellent and everything including the beach is within a few steps. Walk left or right... More

Just spent 4 days in The Shambala Khao Lak. Everything I wanted it to be. It was 6 steps to the pool, 10 steps to the massage hut , 20 steps to the restaurant, and 25 to the beach. I don't think you can get any better than that! I stayed in the seaview villa. Opens to the sea and... More

The Shambhala is nice place for couples and families who want to relax and spend some time in the sun and sea. There is Bungalows, with seaview and gardenview ( seaview is way to go )Good location right at the beach, small pool, massages and the restaurant. Not too far from the main town. We will come back, if we... More

Khao Lak is the perfect beach holiday location, so much quieter than Phuket. It is a one hour taxi drive north of Phuket airport. Bang Niang beach is well located, and the Shambhala is a lovely hotel. Although the area is more expensive then Phuket it is a worthwhile extra expense. The staff are very nice people, relaxed, laid back... More

2/3 star hotel. Very basic accomodation. In need of a revamp. Good breakfast. Staff have limited english. Nice swimming pool but the v small area around it is in need of a good cleanup. On the beach front but 6foot up as the sea hits the hotel wall at high tide.

There are a few seperate cottages combined together as a hotel. The rooms are nice and clean and have full glass doors with a verandah outside. Some of the rooms are facing the beach and have a nice view. The staff is helpful and polite. The hotel is a 10 minute walk from the market. The breakfast area is beach... More

It was a bad choice, because of the policy of the staff. The management of the hotel support rude, disrespecting behaviour some of their guest. I had an argue with one of their guest who smoked near my family (I am pregnant and have 6 years old child) at sunbathing area, I asked him in polite way didn't smoke near... More

Just returned from 2 weeks at the Shambhala and we loved it. if you want a large 5 star impersonal resort don't come here, but if you want a small friendly laid back chilled out holiday this is the place. Its a small family run hotel, daughters run the hotel, daughters husband runs the bar and makes fabulous coffee, auntie's... More
