“Perfect Resort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Lovely garden setting around two pools and fronting a lovely beach (Sunset) which I personally thought much nicer than the more poplar beaches. Excellent location a 15min stroll to the restuarant at night or taxis wait outside and it was nice to be away a bit from the town. The hotel is very reasonably priced and their breakfast is of good quality and varied every day. Lovely staff and has a nice homely feel. We were the only english speaking people there as a lot of Germans, Austrians, Russians and Dutch people like this hotel but I expect this is the same for most of the hotels. Would certainly return here another time.

Room Tip: Maybe choose a room with mountain and pool view but upstairs as if you were on the ground floor you...

We stayed for 5 nights towards the end of October so it was still at low season rates - extremely good value.Friendly effecient staff. We had the superior room which faced in to lots of trees and was very comfortable. As it rained most afternoons the big balcony was really handy. Breakfast was good and so was lunch at a very reasonable price. The swimming pools and grounds are very well kept and it has a great sandy beach right in front. Its only a 15 minute walk to the village or 100bht so handy to pick up cheaper liquid supplies.
The only slight negative was that we were surprised at the amount of smoking in the restaurants by Europeans which has been illegal for ages in most western countries - we were careful selecting our table in the morning and sometimes moved when others started smoking, and one night at the outside restaurant actually left our table before ordering and went next door to the Palms Beach restaurant, and returned there another night for 2 good meals.
For a good view of the beach climb the steps at the end of the beach to the yellow Muanlai restaurant for a cheapbeer or local lunch. For a very good wood fired pizza try the Pinocchio managed by Samantha - an Italian - about 250 meters on the side road down to Mukdara resort - by taxi 150bht. This was our second time in this area and definitely will come back to the Bayfront.

Stayed for only 1 night while showing family the Khao Lak area.We usually stay at the Khoa Lak Palm Beach Resort next door, but were happy to try here, after many years of looking in from the beach.We had Seaview Bungalows which are very spacious and the bathroom had a lovely waterfall shower(no bath though).Gardens are well kept but not as tropical as next door.Staff were all very good.There were some minor worries with English translation but everyone was eager to help.Like most resorts in the area ,there is a large European,mainly German & Dutch,guest base.We had a lovely breakfast where the selection on the day was better than we were used to at Palm.The dinner that we had was superb( and very reasonably priced) in the lovely upstairs restaurant.Although short,we enjoyed our stay and now have made a difficult task for ourselves about where to choose for future holidays! Love the golden sand beach in this area..

Stayed at the Bayfront resort for 2 weeks from May 10th. Fantastic resort, great position tucked at the end of the bay. Rooms were great no expense spared the whole place felt it had been thought through, right down to the gardens, plants everywhere just seemed to be oozing quality.Pool areas were fantastic so relaxing looking back at jungle you could just forget all your troubles and chill. Staff were always very friendly, the restaurant manager was always very polite and chatty and made our stay even nicer.The food was excellent enjoyed every meal and more or less the same price as some of the restaurants in the village. Would I go back, absolutely, have been to Thailand on 8 other holidays to Phuket, Cha Am, Hua Hin, Koh Samui etc and I have to say this area is so laid back and relaxing that it has it all.

Our stay was over the Easter Holidays. Originally had booked for 1 week and were planning to change hotels for the 2nd but why change when you have it all!This was actually our second time at Bayfront and the resort was as good as we remembered it to be. The hotel grounds are filled with plants, it´s most beautiful,green, blossoming and very tidy. You will though meet lizards, frogs and butterflies on you way to hotel breakfast. Breakfast is good - plenty to choose from. You can eat healthy - fruit aso or a full meal Asian style.
We stayed at beachfront bungalow - also very clean and spacious with a rain shower and jacuzzi. And a huge bed, that however quite hard to my taste. The Khaolak beach right in front of the bungalow is a total dream, nothing compares with a morning swim at dawn.
There was a Tsunami alarm during our stay and though it was a bit scary at first as did not know for a while if there´s going to be a tsunami or not will have to express our huge admiration towards the Hotel Manager for a very calm and professional handling of that situation. The resort is build on a quite steep hill and therefor the upper part of it safe, also the jungle mountain is right across the street. We could have escaped to the mountains as well.
All in all, thanks to the friendly staff for a nice stay and a relaxing holiday, hope to see you again!

Room Tip: Due to the humid climate there might be a certain smell in some rooms, it´s good to check before set...

Stayed at the Bayfront resort in a beach front bungalow for 4 nights in October. Greeted by reception staff with a cold drink and facecloth, very welcome after our journey. Very spacious immaculate room with a double shower and Jacuzzi. Beach just a few metres away. Staff very friendly and eager to please. Gardens and pool area very well laid out and well kept. Food very high quality and plenty of variety. Hotel arranged our transfer to our next destination in the hotel minibus, the driver, Sonny, acted as the perfect tour guide, pointing out places of interest along the journey. Koh Lak town approximately 15 mins walk away but there were bars and other resorts along the beach so we never felt the need to go far. If you are looking for a peaceful beach front location in a well run, well kept hotel with friendly respectful staff, then this is the resort to visit. We will defiantly be returning and for longer next time.

Room Tip: Beach front bungalows are sheer luxury

I was lucky enough to have the beachfront room which was just fantastic. 10 meters to the beach from the room. The entire stay was relaxed and private.The grounds of the hotel were noticably well kept and groomed and the breackfast was very good. The staff just smiled and we never wanted for anything. A great getaway in the souther corner of Khaolak which is fronted by beach and surrounded by rainforest and mountains. We has a great time, relaxed and were nicely surprised with our good experience and will return.
