We stayed eight nights at The Sands by Kathatani. Our room was on the top floor, (3rd) and we had views out to the infinity pool and ocean through palms and trees. We could see down to the pool directly below which was accessible mainly for people who had poolside rooms. There were two other pools- the Joy and the... More

We LOVED The Sands. My husband and I have just returned from our stay with our nearly 2 year old. Quite simply, I can't fault The Sands. What really makes it stand out though, and what made it special for us, is the people. The staff are outstanding. From reception, to cleaners, to the restaurants - we had an amazing... More

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights in late December with our 3 yo and 3 month old boys along with my parents and mother and father in law. The Good: The hotel was very accommodating in putting all our rooms together. We had a sick child and the hotel located 2 different doctors for us and they... More

Where do I start? Booked a pool view junior suite using Luxury Escapes for 11 nights. 15 minutes in the room and the fascia came away from the bathroom bench and almost broke my foot. Not the best welcome at midnight after a long flight. But we were quickly moved to a new suite and it looked good. Apart from... More

We have just spent a week here and it was fantastic. There were ten of us, a family group of six adults and four children, aged from 7 to 13. The family rooms are lovely and the swimming pools are excellent. We all had at least one massage, including the children, both at the Spa and at the massage area... More

We stayed at The Sands in April 2015. I would recommend The Sands to anyone. We were very impressed with the daily housekeeping, the room attendants did a fantastic job. There are a lot of activities that you can join in if you choose, everything from yoga, Thai language lessons, gym, aqua aerobics just to name a few and they... More

Having been recommended to stay here we had high expectations and this resort exceeded those expectations. The location is superb, being 5mins from the main road through Khao Lak which has plenty of places to eat. The rooms are spotless and kept that way by the staff, the only slight moan being that the air-conditioning is a bit noisy. The... More

I am always amazed at some of the reviews I read on Tripadvisor and wonder if we could have possibly stayed at the same hotel and interacted with the same staff. We had a wonderful time at the Sands Khao Lak. The rooms were modern and clean and the daily cleaning was to a high standard. The setting and location... More
