“Just Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

My Husband and I had the most wonderful time at Beyond resort. We upgraded to a one
bedroom pool villa and we were not disappointed. The room was fantastic very clean and
we could not fault the staff very helpful and friendly especially " Fai she was outstanding."
We will certainly be retuning.

We have just returned from Thailand and had a great time. We upgraded to a 10 night stay . The driver was waiting for us at the airport and stopped to get us cold water for the trip up to Khao Lak. We found the staff to be extremely helpful and friendly. The beds were a bit hard but I had read other reviews and the suggestion was to ask the staff for a mattress topper which we did and it was perfect - we loved the king size beds! The villas were fantastic- so roomy and kept well cleaned by the staff! We received a fruit plate every day and it was lovely to try some of Thailand's local fruit. We did try MaMa;s beach Café - a short walk down the beach and the food was lovely. The staff were flexible with our 2 fee dinner vouchers and we could swap them for themed night dinners or meals at the beach café/bar. Our massage vouchers could also be used for cocktails. The Buffet breakfasts were filled with choices and the staff got to know what coffee we had in the morning and would make us one straight away! The pool had a swim up bar that was manned from about 11am and the staff would make us some icy fruit drinks to keep us cool! It was lovely to have a child free resort to relax in and would have to trouble recommending it to anyone! Our bar fridge was only a cooler and we found the drinks didn't stay very cold - but the staff gave us an ice bucket to put in there and that kept our drinks icy.
thankyou to all the staff at Beyond Resort for making our stay a memorable one! We will return and bring some other couples next time!

Room Tip: up grade to Premier Villa

My husband and I just returned from staying here. At first we were in a premier villa. The room was clean and very big. The bed however was very hard. The next day we walked along the beach and seen the waterfront two bedroom villa and went directly up to the office to request that room. We were not sorry that we did. The villa was very big, had two outdoor baths that you could fit a small family it lol. We received two fruit trays everyday, which was an awful lot as we could not possibly eat it and our bar fridge was filled daily. The staff was wonderful, friendly and very accommodating.
They organized our trips into town and any excursions. The food was terrific and plenty. We also did the Thai cooking course and was quite happy with the cleanliness of the kitchen and standards.
I really can't find any fault but you can tell it is a newer hotel and is growing and learning as it does.
Would we come back to this resort? Yes we would but not in the rainy season. We only had two really good days and didn't see the sunset once. No one can control the weather though. Oh there is one thing I could suggest, get some new entertainment. We had the same three people every night we were there. It kinda got to be a joke with the guest. They were really good, but not every night. And maybe some music at the pool bar would be good to. Thanks again for a very relaxing time.

Room Tip: Go for the two bedroom waterfront, it's worth the upgrade!!!

Dear Valerie W,

Many thanks for your review. Very happy to see that you had a good time here. I understand it take a bit of the fun if the weather does paly tricks, but I guess that is one chance one takes when booking in the rainy season. Saying that, rain is not really mandatory every day, we can have weeks of sunshine pure during this period as well. It's nature, one thing we will never learn to control but have to learn to live with it.
Thanks to our hard working sales team we kept the band on, sorry there is not really a budget for much more entertainment during this time of the year where most resorts running at loss\ but still try to make the guests stay as pleasant as possible.

Hope to have you back in high season and enjoy the beauty of Khaolak , including its spectacular sunsets

Yours sincerely

I have made sure that my comments match the star rating as I understand from reading feedback to previous reviews from Robert, the resort manager that this is a most necessary requirement.
The title of this review is "Average" and that really best sums up this resort. Rooms are clean and tidy with an adequate fit out but the beds are not satisfactory as they are of the style where 2 singles are pushed together to make a KS bed.
Service ranges from "good" in the main restaurant to "poor" at reception where staff don't appear to want to help out with your requests.
The pool area is "very good" with a nice pool and plenty of lounges for guests however service in this area if you want to get a drink or something to eat is "poor" as staffing levels are inadequate to take and receive requests.
In summary, average!

Room Tip: Rooms near the pool area preferred

thanks for your short but interesting review. I certainly know where to screw the knots a little tighter now and which departments are in for some extra training and motivation.

Again thank you

We have just returned from 8 nights on a Luxury Escapes voucher, upgrading to the premier villa. The resort is lovely and the rooms are beautiful as described by other reviewers. Just a couple of points to consider:
If you are non smokers as we are, recognise that a lot of the guests smoke, and in Thailand they do not enforce no smoking zones. Eg staff in the Beach Bar were happy to let guests smoke on the table next to us as we ate our lunch, despite the 'no smoking' sign on both tables. When we complained to the manager he explained the rules are "flexible" - meaning if you don't like the smoke you need to move (not the other way round).
Secondly, the meal vouchers do not entitle you to what is described in the Luxury Escapes offer. Eg the 'Taste of Thailand' dinner allows no choice and is simply a tray with rice and 3 tasting dishes. This was by far the worst meal we had on our holiday. Definite impression that those travelling on a voucher get lower quality.
Apart from these relatively minor downsides, we had a wonderful time at Beyond Resort. Loved the quiet child free atmosphere and the easy access to fantastic beach restaurants - a couple still open when we visited, highly recommend MaMas. Sunrise restaurant at the top of the drive also great and a fraction of the prices in the resort.

Room Tip: Worth upgrading to the premier villa

Dear JCL_11,

Many thanks for choosing to stay at the resort. I will have a chant with the chef regarding the Thai Menu, we have so far sold about 1000 of there dinners without any bad feedback. maybe they changed the menu? Anyway very sorry to hear that and I will look into it. I am nevertheless happy to see that overall you had a good 8 days with us here.

Best regards from Khaolak

Two weeks in the most beautiful resort i ever visited - totally perfect holiday.
I enjoyed relaxing at the pools and on the Beach. The accomodation in the Palm Villa was very comfortable, the service perfectly!

We spent 8 nights at Beyond Resort using the Luxury Escapes voucher. We travelled with another couple. We had a standard villa and our friends had upgraded to the premier villa. There was very very little difference between them apart from a few minor decorating touches. The only thing I wished we had in our standard villa was the dvd player as there were a few rainy afternoons.

The meals we had at the resort were very nice and there was ample choice for us. We ate quite a few meals at the local beach restaurants everyone else has mentioned and agree there is nothing that beats a great meal, super cheap beers and cocktails, sitting with your feet in the sand and looking at the sun setting over the water. Timing the walk along the beach front so the creek you walk through is not waist high is important.

The cooking class was great and you get to eat your meal afterwards.

The only things I would like to see changed is a bit of organised fun and games/music around the pool. Just because it's a no children resort doesn't mean everyone is on honeymoon or a pensioner. And while we enjoyed the trio a lot, it would have been better to have them alternating with a dj perhaps. Also the spa massage ladies weren't as nice as the ladies on the beach. The ambience of the spa was better but at times it felt like they were inflicting pain because they didn't really want to do the job. We ended up using our vouchers for cocktails instead of massages.

Room Tip: If you are using the Luxury Escapes 30min massage vouchers book in as many as you can in advance. I...
