We booked this hotel because of the good reviews and were not disappointed. When we arrived at the hotel we were welcomed with flower necklaces and welcome drinks. This first impression is one that lasts: the staff is very, very friendly at this hotel.
The Chongfa is located a little outside of the "city center" of Khao Lak. However, if you want to see the town, the cheapest and easiest way is probably to take the rental bicycles which are available for free at the hotel and just ride into town (it is only a 10 minutes ride). However, there is no real need to go to Khao Lak since everything one needs is just around the corner of the hotel: shops, restaurants and the beach.
The hotel itself is beautifully designed with lots of water, trees and flowers. The rooms are spaceous, clean and well equipped. The pool area is really nice and you get towels to take to the beach as well. The breakfast has a wide variety of choices of fresh and tasty food which you can enjoy while watching the sun rise over the ocean. I had my birthday while staying at Chongfa and the staff really did a lot to make this day special with table and room decoration and even a cake.
After our first stay, we went on a liveaboard and filled out the feedback form which also included some minor criticism like not enough vegetarian food on the evening menu. When we came back after three days everything was fixed and we were told that every dish on the menu could be made vegetarian as well. We were very happy that our feedback had not only been read but also something had been done about it quickly - now that is outstanding service.
We really enjoyed our stay. The Chongfa is an oasis for relaxation to which we will definitely return if we ever come back to Khao Lak.
