We took our 3 teenagers for a five days holiday here and had a lovely to time with sun, swimming, cocktails and excellent service. The food selection was wide and varied with very little wait after ordering. We hired a scooter one day and also enjoyed eating at local eateries down the road. The staff were very friendly, always willing... More

The Pekarang Cape area is really peaceful and quiet with only a handful of resorts.The closest local restaurants and shops (6 restaurants , one minimarket, one tailor and 2 tour operators) are located 0,5 km from the Southsea. If you need more services (ATM, pharmacy...) you need to take a taxi to Khaolak center, where you also will find a... More

The resort is located on a quiet stretch of beach near Laem Pakarang (Pakarang Cape), at the most easterly point in Thailand. The beach is nice and long, but it's fairly shallow and low-tide goes out quite far. This makes swimming safe, though. Beach vendors provided F&B and massage at very competitive prices and this was a pleasant surprise. Rooms... More

nice hotel close to the beach. Nice staff and clean rooms with an amazing view of the beach. The hotel was bigger and better than we expected. the brakfast is ok but gets a little boring after a week. we recommend you to go to white sand beach which is quite close. Probably the best beach in khao lak.

Nice and cozy ambiance. Very clean and spacious beachfront room and the beach is just a stone throw away opposite the resort. A hidden gem to getaway from the busy crowd in Phuket. The staff are helpful and friendly, I arrived at 10am, earlier than my scheduled time and was able to check-in without having to wait till 2pm. Shuttle... More

If you like the sun, sand and sea but not the crowd like Patong beach, perhaps this resort would be ideal for you. Despite 1hr 30 min drive away from the airport, it bring you the peacefulness of the resort as well as the beach. The beachfront resort which allow you to do sun tanning and the sunset stroll with...

This is a lovely friendly and clean hotel. It isn't on the main khao lak strip of shops/restaurants but there is a cheap taxi rank right outside and hotel staff will also drive you for a modest fee. There are also some lovely little restaurants a short walk away for good local food at cheap prices. The hotel itself also... More

This hotel is not suitable for children or couples wanting a swinging time as it is 7 miles from Khao Lac where... More

A fabulous location on the best family beach in Kao Lak ...good rooms...nice pool, but the big downside was the food. The restaurant food is way overpriced , and extremely un-appealing. The room rate does not include breakfast, which was of very poor standard ...stale pastries, hot food that was cold, not enough variety and little local fruit .. it... More
