KKK resort is perfect for those couples or families who are looking for quiet location right on a beautiful beach. The bungalows closer to the beach look very nice although we stayed for three consecutive Saturday nights as a reprieve from our non-air conditioned home in Takuapa in a very affordable family room (3 children aged 13, 10, 8) in the main hotel because the bungalows are not large enough for family of 5. The room was spacious and comfortable although the bathroom was a bit tired. We found a great rate on Agoda. Apparently the end of their season before they close until November is the end of April so when we went over 3 weekends at the end of March the resort was becoming a ghost town, kind of eerie, and many of the amenities were shutting down for season (e.g., beach sunset bar, indoor spa, beach massage not actually part of resort but cheap and right next door on the private beach). The 3 pools were beautiful and seemingly well maintained. The grounds themselves were not superlative as walkways were allowed to be overgrown with weeds, etc. The restaurant was a bit on the expensive side (e.g., 300 baht for one person pizza) relative to food in Thailand and it was any great shakes but the selection was fine and it had great setting right on beach. The complimentary breakfast was fine with made to order omelettes, fresh fruit and fresh waffles, among other Thai selections but the bacon wasn't great. The tour arranging desk was very helpful, especially Aek, and offered very competitive rates (cheaper than other Khao Lak hotels even tho they use the same companies) on snorkelling tours to Similan Islands, etc. There were free volleyballs available for signout and free ping pong table and darts. The outdoor massage on the property was affordable (300 or 400 baht for one hour) and professional. We enjoyed the external massage huts on the beach too (before they closed on the second weekend) and they were a little more affordable (ie all 300 baht). Taxi from the pier to the resort and back are free upon check in and check out and is abougt 10 minutes. Otherwise going to the pier for dinner in evenings is 50 baht per person one way and leaving/going to island on longtail boat or ferry is 20 baht per person or 150 baht per car on fery which covers all people in car. Restaurants at pier are marginally cheaper and good quality we found. ALso going to Tsunami Memorial in Baan Naam Kem very close by is also worthy it and very sombre. Overall we obviously liked resort and thought it very good value which is why we went back for 3 consecutive weekends.
