“Relaxing, beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2014

We stayed 8 nights earlier this year (March). We wanted a luxury resort & this was great. Set back from the main road which can be an issue if you want to leave the resort. Shuttles available limited times & could involve a fee. Taxis are available. Staff are great, very helpful all well spoken with great English. Our cabin was great, we did need to upgrade & pay a higher fee. The low cost rooms are set well back from this large resort & less amenities in the room. We were very happy with our upgrade. Pod Coffee machine (1 free rest at a cost) Also instant coffee & tea available with powdered milk. Bottled water provided, minibar, Magnificent Big bathroom. Shower gels & body lotions provided. Big room, well decorated, with TV area & couch, fresh fruit plate provided, very comfortable room. Out door area with lounges, table & Chairs. (was not available in our original room) There are bigger with pool and beach front access & more amenaties if you want to upgrade to another level. Staff are helpful, they will not recommend restaurants in the area. There are many good restaurants, plenty on the beach front to the right of the resort, good food & inexpensive. Massages in the same area great & inexpensive. The resort its self is amazing, at least 5 pools, two restaurants, Thai very good & Open air Seafood & International also very good. Breakfast dining area also great, inside & outside areas. Food selections are abundant, so many choices & a cook to order station. Changes daily. General Managers meet & greet cocktail party offered during your stay, Canapes & drinks, nice way to met some other travelers. Evening Entertainment was great. The resort has NO KIDS, very relaxing and refreshing as most are over 35+ . Never felt it was over crowded.The beach front is literally a step from the pool. Chairs, lounges & umbrellas freely available.WIFI to three devises. Convenience store on site (no fresh milk available). Arranged a transfer to the airport & it was hassle free, available at what ever time you want. (could be a fee involved, was included in or package.) The room didn't offer any information on resort offers or amenities, we had to ask what Entertainment was on, Spa availability, restaurant times ect, ect...specialty nights are only advertised at the resort bar. This is attached to the main restaurant, great variety & daily cocktails & coffee bar. Happy hour daily is great if you want to try fancy cocktails. Swim Pool bar is very convenient. Staff always available & extra staff around during happy hours. Overall this is a great resort if you are looking to relax. No Hawkers on the beach, (you can still shop on the beach in little outlets) but also no water sports. We spent our first week at a resort with all the sports & hawkers this was our choice for a relaxing week, pool. beach, sun, food, massages,cocktails & relaxing...Laundry service expensive in the resort. We used the laundry service at the first location right of the resort on the beach, very happy, clean, smelt great, folded & overnight service. Charge by the piece not the weight but very good. Highly recommend this resort. & surrounding beach areas.

Room Tip: Upgrade to rooms with garden settings, closer to pools & restaurants & more inclusions. wort...

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
