We arrived here after our diving liveaboard and were shown to our garden villa. Having never been to Khao Lak before we were unsure what to expect. The villa was lovely with a spacious bedroom/sitting area and then a huge bathroom. The bathroom had a spa bath and separate walk in shower. The rooms needed a lick of paint and a few pictures would make them more welcoming. Room cleaning had to be requested as by tea time no one had been.
The hotel grounds however were in desperate need of tidying and the pool seriously needed cleaning. The hotel only has a few rooms but is right on the beach. Downside we found out was that there are no sunloungers on the beach and you are not allowed to take any on there. The loungers at the hotel were dirty and scattered all over the grounds. Breakfast was in the reception area and was good, there was a coffee machine there also and a selection of dvd's for use in the villas. Staff consisted of a young girl who seemed to run everything and a young guy who helped now and again. Sadly we encountered a huge tropical storm in the night and lost all power including air con and lighting and all water so we couldnt shower or use the wc. The bigger hotel had contingencies for this but as a small hotel Luckanawadee had to rely on others to fix the problem. Due to this we asked for a refund which we were given and we moved back down to Phuket where the storms hadnt hit.
The hotel could be a fabulous little boutique but it seems that the owners just dont care and leave one poor little girl to do everything. She was lovely and did everything she could to help.
Having seen around Khao Lak, we definitely prefer Phuket and would only stay in Khao Lak as a before and after liveaboard stopover.
