“Remote and relaxing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

I stayed at the Beyond Resort with a conference group and found the whole experience at Khao Lak to be memorable. The atmosphere at this resort is very chill. The resort is spread out along a canal leading to the beach - which was magnificent - white sand and clean. The multi-level pools overlooking the beach were stunning. There were plenty of lounges by the pools and the beach, so relaxing out there was easy and an absolute pleasure. The weather was magnificent.
I ate all of my meals at the resort except one night and I found the food to be of high quality at all times. Drinks were also good value. The spa was lovely - I had a couple of massages and manicure/pedicure which was very good. The service staff here were faultless - very polite and attentive.
The room was gorgeous! More like a villa - it was spacious and elegant with a huge bathroom/dressing room. The shower and plumbing was first class due to the rooms being newly built after the tsunami destruction. The air-conditioning was excellent. The beds were very comfortable. All rooms have their own verandah with table and chairs and it was nice to sit outside and enjoy the tranquility at any time.
I would go back to this resort at any time and would not hesitate in recommending it to anyone wanting a tranquil relaxing holiday far from the bustling crowded city.

Hi Lee S,

Many thanks for your delayed review of the resort. Your group is about to come back this year again with even more participants for the coaching sessions. Great to see that you have enjoyed your stay here and I am sure with the signing up of many major Australian Tour Operators we will see many Aussi's throughout the year with us, enjoying an relaxing break at the beach

Again, many thanks

A very special stay made so enjoyable by friendly, helpful well trained staff, well priced, tasty food and superb accommodation. We spent a month in Vietnam and Thailand staying in six hand picked resorts and this was the best.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

+: location, friendly staff, nice property
-: no wifi (only for "better rooms") even in low season, lack of bottled water, no fruits in room, freeshuttle bus operates only few times per day, location (good for get away but can be boring after 7pm, overpriced food and drinks.
Recomendation would be - stay top 7 days but it is possible to find better stay in the area or closer in Phuket.
If this would be my stay on the first visit to Thailand then I would be really dissapointed, because it misses that Thai charm and magic. This stay is more formal and business oriented and it is not smooth as silk!

Dear tikiNicosia,

Many thanks for your third attempt to review the resort as the first 2 have been dismissed by Tripadvisor for breaching their guidelines. As you can see, writing a bit more polite and without insubordination helps to get featured.
Wifi is available for all rooms but for the basic room type at a cost of Bht. 400.- ( 10 Euro ) per stay ( be that 1 day or 3 weeks ). As of November 1. 2013 it will be free for all types and in all corners of the resort. The rates in the low season are so cheap already, we simply cannot add more free benefits into the deals. Fruits are served once upon arrival, correct, and the busses operate 5 times per day which is enough for most of our guests. Why do you expect all free of charge? After all, as you have noticed correctly, we run a business and not a charity organisation, and if you stay at a 4-5 star hotel, i think it is normal that the prices are a bit stiffer that in the street shop's were you enjoyed your dinners. Please compare egg to egg.

Again thank you very much to try so hard to make your voice heared.

I have to say, this resort is the best I have ever stayed at. The accommodation is roomy, clean and comfortable, not a hotel room at all, more a suite, we stayed in the premier palm villa, these are nearer to the pools, beach and beach bar/ restaurants, worth the upgrade cost.
The poolside and grounds are beautiful, plenty of sun beds for all. There is a swim up pool bar, this was closed for our visit as its low season, this is a shame, it would have been a nice addition.
Happy hour at the beachside bar is a must, stunning location to sit and have a cocktail or two.
Other reviews have stated that the food is expensive compared to the local restaurants, we eat at the resort every night, there was a Thai special menu on which the food was reasonably priced and delicious, also you have to compare like for like, the local restaurants I'm sure are good value, but can't been put in the same category. One night, a the resort put on a Thai buffet night with live local band, it was a great night, the food was wonderful.
The staff are outstanding, always a smile on there face, always attentive and friendly, other places in the world could learn a lot from them.
The one thing I must make clear is, this is a quiet resort, a place to come and relax and unwind, don't expect to be entertained, there are no jet ski's, loud music etc, personally this makes for a very tranquil place, I really hope it stays this way.
All in all, a very well run and thought out place, all credit to the management and its staff.

If you need a quality resort to drop out, relax and recharge, then look no further. Peaceful and tranquil best describes this property. The villas are fantastic, modern and spacious. The pool is beautiful and big and right on the beach. The three restaurants offer great food at fair prices. But it is the staff that impressed us most.....so attentive and friendly, they really are a credit to the resort.

We stayed at Beyond Resort Khaolak 07-17Jul13 and I have to say that if you can keep the hotel as it is today, we'll certainly keep on coming back again and again :)

I can warmly recommend this hotel, not too up scale, but still excellent yet cozy.
