Taxi is best way, having gone across on ferry from Koh Lanta. I'm sure you will be able to get fixed up with one locally when you are there. Once off the ferry it will be about 3 and a half hours but a nice scenic drive.

Koh Lanta is an island connected to the mainland by ferry or by boat to/from Krabi mainland. It's then a drive up towards Phuket and then North to Khao Lak. Presumably you will be flying into Bangkok then onto Phuket then Koh Lanta? So you will need to return to Phuket airport from Khao Lak in order to return to Bangkok. Khao Lak to Phuket airport is just over an hour.

Travelling from Koh Lanta to Khao Lak:

1.

Car all the way from Koh Lanta to Khao Lak including two car ferries between Koh Lanta and the main land. One from Lanta yai to Lanta noi, and one from Lanta noi to the main land. The ferries are running all day, with just a few minuts crossing. You don`t even have to leave the car when crossing.

2.

Ferry from Koh Lanta to Phuket (via Phi-Phi, I think) and a car from Phuket to Khao Lak.

3.

Ferry from Koh Lanta to Krabi town (or Ao Nang) and a car from there to Khao Lak.

It is of course easiest to go by car all the way, but the combination of boat (ferry) and car is great if you want to see more of both the coast and main land.
