“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2014

We have recently returned from our holiday at This resort. It was a fabulous holiday. We had a voucher and all aspects of the voucher were honoured. We dad have to use more than one of the massage vouchers for our massages but that was OK. The food was excellent. The staff were very helpful. Our villa was great right next to the pools. The tour guide at the resort was very friendly and helpful when booking our tours. Khaolak was some distance from the airport, about an hour and a half drive. But there is a village about 15 mins from the resort which is quite big and has markets which are good. The deal we got to stay at this resort was excellent.

Room Tip: Try to get the premium villas. Ours was 1306 and an excellent room.

We've just experienced 7 amazing days at Beyond in Khao Lak. The facilities are all that you would expect of a 5 star resort. but what really made our stay so unforgettable, was the attention given to us by the wonderful staff. We'd really like to thank Pai, Alma, Eddie, Youi, and Oil in particular. You made us feel so welcome, and your smiles were always a highlight of our day. Many thanks also to the very talented band who entertained the guests with their wide repertoire of songs. Hopefully. we will catch up again in two years time !

I previously submitted a review questioning Beyond Resorts marketing with a Sea View which manager Robert asked me to check. I have done so on my return home and agree there is no direct statement of sea views, but an implication, so am happy to withdraw my comment.
I will take issue however, with the dispute of my comment re watching TV only from the bed.
Our room, 1408, did not have two lounge chairs and the only place to view the TV was from the bed. I will not add further comments as it may be taken as sour grapes. I am a great believer in trip advisor and I only use it to pass constructive comments.

Dear CraigHW,

Murphys Law really.... When we build the resort we had 4 different mock-up villas done. 1408 was one of them with the TV in the middle of the room but can be turned around, allowing to sit on the balcony, on the small chairs and table behind the TV or in the bed when watching. You are correct, in this room are no 2 Sofa chairs and lounge table.
Thank you also for clearing the sea-view dispute, again for others who read this, we do not offer sea view except in the frontage 1 and 2 Bedroom Pool Villas.
Also our new Elite Villas with Jacuzzi or private pool come with 100% privacy but no sea view.

Whishing you a great day

We purchased 8 night package thru Luxury Escapes with a Palm Villa. We arrived in Phuket at 9pm at night. Our driver who picked us up was very friendly and a very good driver. Even though it was dark, he pointed out interesting places to us. The resort words cannot express how wonderful it was. Breakfast each morning was amazing. There were so many choices. We had 8 massages at the Spa. The ladies were fantastic, I didn't realise I had so many aching parts to my back. They actually fixed my shoulder which I had problems with for over 12 months. Carsten the tour guide for Eco Khaolak was very good. There is plenty to do we went for a walk up to the waterfall and passed a rubber plantation on the way. We also had the Thai Set menu at Siam Restaurant, and it was divine. Loved the soup, I thought I was in heaven, best soup I have every tasted. The Seafood set was at the Beach restaurant and we couldn't fault it. Fish was beautifully cooked and very fresh. Our Villa was at the top close to reception, but the walk was ok. We could have upgraded closer to the facilities, but we were quite happy with what we had. Rooms were very clean and spacious. Staff at the resort were fantastic, nothing was a problem. They were friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend,

Room Tip: If you want to be closer to facilites, select a Premier Palm Villa.

Dear Carol B,

Many thanks for your fantastic review of the resort. We are delighted to read that your holiday with us was a throughout positive experience. Room choice... yes indeed a bit difficult here, Premier near the pool and beach, Pool Villas directly at the beach, Palm Villa a bit back but quiet Elite villas 100% private with wall around and available with Jacuzzi or with Private pool.... so much choice so little holidays.. :-)

Looking forward to have you back soon

Great holiday, resort, pools, beach and villas. We went to r & r, and that is what we did.
Lovely beaches and staff. Ventured out for 1/2 day Elephant ride and river wash. Probably best tour been on in years. Boyd & his team were great from Ecotours.
Will defiantly return.

We have just returned from an amazing 10 night stay at Beyond Resort, want to be back there now instead of cold raining Perth. From the minute we arrived it felt so relaxing, peaceful and a little bit like paradise. We stayed in the premier palm villa and had about a 30 second walk to the beach, we could hear the waves breaking from our room. The staff are lovely, so friendly, the room is kept very clean. We had a 20% VIP voucher which really cut down the cost of everything at the hotel. Happy hour twice a day meant 40% of cocktails, etc., really great value. We did the elephant ride, bath and waterfall tour what an experience, not to be missed! If you are looking for a quiet, tranquil atmosphere away from all the hustle and bustle of everyday this is definitely the place to stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 1303, good privacy and close to the beach

We stayed for 8 nights at the end of April. This was our first holiday together without our children and because of this we were attracted to the idea of an adults only resort. This resort did not disappoint us. Due to an injury I made a request for a centrally located premiere villa and my request was granted with courtesy and great consideration. Our villa looked out across the entertainment marquee where the theme nights are held and we had a small view of the beach bar and ocean beyond. Our villa was lovely and spacious. What we most appreciated was the privacy our villa afforded us. The free mini bar consisting of soft drink and beer was more than we could consume in a day and the fruit platter daily was a nice touch. We found that between breakfast and the fruit in the afternoon we were incapable of eating lunch. Which was a shame as the beach bar offered some tempting specials each day. I loved being able to go for a quick swim and then go back to the front porch of the villa to lie in the sun. My husband used the gym daily and seemed happy enough. We had a poolside massage each day. Both the lovely ladies, Pime and Oy (I think I have that right) at the poolside appreciated my injury and treated me with great care. I was surprised at their ability to quickly ascertain the issue and come up with a plan to treat the area despite my limited Thai speaking skills and their understandably limited English. After 7 days of their treatment I felt the best I have in a long time and for that alone the trip to Beyond was well worth it. We met Robert the GM at the cocktail night. He was very much the raconteur and had a great vegemite "drive" running which amused everyone staying from Australia (basically he persuaded guests to bring a large jar of Vegemite with them and would reimburse them the cost as Vegemite is not available in Thailand and desired at breakfast by the large numbers of Australians staying). I thought this was very inventive, thoughtful and for that alone I would have given 5 stars! The funniest part was that at the time we left he had enough Vegemite to feed a large Australian city indefinitely. We would stay here again without hesitation.
