Just come back from an 11 night stay here. If you are after a peaceful, quiet and relaxing holiday then this is the place. Khao Lak is a small town with plenty of restaurants ranging from little shacks to big eateries.
The hotel is stunning, still very new but never the less stunning. We had a pool access junior suite. Very modern with a great pool. There are plenty of sun beds to choose from and the pools are great!!
The hotel restaurants are very good a little samey but I think the staff more than make up for this, they just can't seem to do enough for you. We were half board so were able to spend our money outside of the hotel and put a little back into the community.
Can't comment on the hotel spa as we chose to go in to town for our massages, although the hotel massage girls were always busy!
You will need a good mozi spray but this is to be expected in a tropical country.
We loved The Sands it was a totally relaxing easy holiday. The only negative we had was that the drinks are a little pricey.
This is a stunning location and despite what other people have said about The Sands, it is well presented, modern, clean, friendly and a perfect place to relax.
I would like to say once more how great the staff are. For a very young, new staff they have all achieved an excellent work ethic!
