We have just spent 10 nights at Khao Lak Resort in Thailand and it's the best family holiday we have ever had. My husband, our two daughters, 18 and 19, and I, loved every minute of our stay and are sad to have had to leave yesterday afternoon. We had a bungalow by the pool and overlooking the sea, which offered everything we needed for our stay. We enjoyed trips elephant trekking, canoeing, to James Bond Island and to the local turtle conservation project. The only poor trip was to Phuket and we were thrilled to return to Khao Lak Resort after that. We did a cookery course at the resort, which was really good fun and offered value for money. We ate at the resort and also at a number of restaurants in Khao Lak village. There are many good local restaurants, including a rustic little restaurant just along the beach from the resort called Peter's Bar. You can also get a massage just next to this restaurant, which is excellent and great value. Everything about the resort is good, but I think what sets it apart is the friendliness of the staff. Without exception they were excellent and nothing was too much trouble. It really does make a massive difference to a holiday when you find this. It was low season and consequently everywhere was that much quieter, which we really enjoyed. I would certainly go back again in low season and would definitely choose Khao Lak Resort. The local markets are worth going to, and although we didn't get mopeds these were fairly cheap to hire and we think we would do this if we went again. Khao Lak area is an absolutely beautiful part of the world and feels extremely friendly and safe for all ages of people. We cannot recommend it enough: it's the best family holiday we have ever had by a long way. Our rating for the spa is because the spa was actually closed due to refurbishment work and treatments took place in a hotel room. These were good, but it would have been nice to visit the spa. Also, we didn't do any children's activities, so can't comment on these. All I can say is that all the children staying at the resort seemed very happy with the place. Thanks to all the staff there for making it so memorable.
