“Nice new resort in good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014 via mobile

Stayed here late February to meet up with friends who were staying here for nearly one month. Hotel is well situated for surrounding beaches and the town for evening entertainment. Only drawback was the hike to our room. Ours was situated at the top of the hill well away from the main reception and restaurant areas but the walk and steps kept us fit for the 4 days we stayed. Reception were very efficient and other staff appeared friendly. Would not hesitate to stay again and may well do so next February.

Dear Paul S,

Thank you for taking the time to review us. Your thoughts and comments are very important to us.

I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us. The Grand Deluxe Rooms are indeed located up the mountain but currently we are installing a lift to take some of the walk out of it.

We do hope we will get the opportunity to welcome you back in the not so distant future.

Kind Regards,

Ciaran McNeill

Myself and my husband stayed at this hotel for 7 nights at the end of April. We booked a Pool Access room and were very pleased with the room.
Upon check in we were greeted with a very welcome fruit cocktail as it was so hot and had been travelling for 14 hours.
We filled in a quick form and were then showed to our room and luggage arrived very quickly after.
Our room was lovely and modern and due to it being our honeymoon there was a bottle of bubbly and a bowl of fruit on arrival as well as a fab flower arrangement on the bed.
The bed was huge and the bathroom and shower were very good.
It was lovely to walk out onto the terrace and being able to dip straight into the pool
The grounds were very well maintained. The beach area by the hotel was ok but we preferred to walk about 10 minutes further along to the left as it was much nicer and there was also a great little beach bar where you could stop for a beer and lunch.
Breakfast was great with a big selection of foods.
The pools were lovely with the option of a larger pool or 3 smaller ones which were by the pool access rooms. The only thing is they are not cold enough! but this is just down to the weather and the constant heat!
We ate out every night and there are plenty of restaurants if you turn left out of the hotel and walk about 10 minutes to reach the main 'strip' we didn't have a bad meal the whole week and actually ate twice at Smile Restaurant as it was so nice but you do need to book in.
We did a trip locally which we got for half price due to it being the end of season to do an elephant trek and a kayak down the river. A full day trip and a great experience.

We thoroughly enjoyed our first week of our honeymoon in Khao Lak and would recommend to anyone wanting a chilled week with great food and a lovely beach with the option to do local trips. We would also recommend the Sensimar for couples as this is an adult only property which we were very grateful for for a peaceful week.

I stayed in the Sensimar Khao Lak Beachfront Resort earlier this year in Jan/Feb with my Boyfriend & Family.. I could honestly say there wasn't a single fault throughout our 2 week stay and I have never stayed in a more immaculate hotel in my whole life! The staff were so friendly & very helpful always smiling. The breakfast was great and there was plenty to keep you full until dinner time. The room was amazing, so comfortable, very very spacious and incredibly clean!! The pool was lovely, some mornings struggled to get a sun lounger which is obviously no fault to the hotels (maybe the overly keen guests) in which case we instead just enjoyed the beautiful beach (perks of being beachfront!) Our first trip to Thailand in which the hotel had such great impact in our holiday we have booked to return next year. Khao Lak was perfect for what we wanted in a holiday lots of great resturants, bars & wonderful tailors! Cannot wait to return in Feb 2015 :)

Dear Emily D,

Thank you for taking the time to review us on TripAdvisor.

I am delighted to see that both you and your boyfriend enjoyed your holiday here at Sensimar.

I am sorry to hear you had some problems getting a sunbed some mornings but that is something we definitely plan to rectify next season by adding to our sunbed numbers.

We are really looking forward to welcoming you back next February.

Kind Regards,

Ciaran McNeill

Stayed at this hotel for two weeks in June (low season so low occupancy). This hotel is in a great location, very well managed and with excellent friendly staff. We dined at the hotel twice, once in each of the restaurants. The food was delicious and some of the best we had in the area. The price was also very competitive. The hotel has a great gym, if you are that way inclined, with modern equipment. We had a pool access room which was spacious and extremely clean. There is a sliding door at the back of your room which leads onto a patio and the pool. The patio comfortably fits two sun lounges, a table and two chairs. This area is in the shade all day. The hotel also has a 'mini-mart' if you need soft drink or run out of other basic items. We had a couple of cocktails at the beach bar at sunset - very nice! The staff at the front counter were very helpful and organised taxis at basically the same price as you would get in the street. Across the road there is a great cocktail bar with 100 Baht cocktails and other very good restaurants. All in all, a great holiday. Thank you to everyone at the Sensimar!

Room Tip: You will love the pool access rooms.

Third trip to Sensimar and perfect as always. Ciaran, the wonderful Ann and ALL the staff make this resort a pleasure to visit. Celebrated a wedding anniversary with a ten night stay in a deluxe beachfront bungalow. AMAZING!!! A calm oasis. Daily massages on the beach were a highlight closely followed by pre-dinner cocktails by the pool (thank you Jac and Pray) Enjoyed several dinners at the restaurant and found the food to be exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble. Ann helped us book a trip with Khao Lak Land Discovery to Phang Nga Bay and Hong Island. A wonderful experience
I can't recommend Sensimar highly enough.

This resort certainly ticks all the boxes. The rooms are well designed and everything that you require is either fitted or supplied. Previous reviews outlined the need for WiFi access to all areas this has been done and free. The staff at the resort take great pride in ensuring that your stay is totally worry free. I must make special mention of the Kulinarium restaurant, during our stay we dined there most nights the food was excellent however what topped it off was the excellent service from Joo and Kung, always friendly welcoming and very good at there jobs. This resort is well positioned and only a six minute walk to Khoalak centre. Great cocktail bar across the road. The prices at the resort are on par with the restaurant s outside but the food and presentation is better. I would certainly book a pool access room - spacious with good sized balcony with sun lounges and table and chairs. The resort has one of the best gyms that I have seen in any resort. Modern equipment and free weights.

Room Tip: Pool access room definitely...

My husband and I have just spent 12 nights at the Sensimar in a pool access room during Apr/May. When I asked my husband what he didn't like about the place, he just looked at me blankly. Now when we were there it was the beginning of low season so not too many people around, which was perfect. The things I loved......this is the first time we've stayed in an over 18's resort and I loved it !!!!!! The bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept in in Thailand and the pillows were divine. Our room was large and spacious and unlike most resorts, there were plenty of places to store luggage once you'd unpacked. The bar fridge was huge with a big freezer for making ice cubes and having the option to have it stocked or not is a great idea. The bathroom was lovely with bath and shower and a separate toilet. And the cupboard had at least 20 coat hangers, most resorts don't have nearly enough, small thing I know, but this resort seems to have thought of the little things. The air conditioner was very quiet if you turned off the fans (in air con unit) at night. Breakfast was great, plenty of choice, we ate at the main restaurant and had lunch at the beach bar a couple of times and found the prices very reasonable. I especially loved the 3 dogs down at the beach and so did a lot of the other guests, they enjoyed a pat and a scratch and would meet and greet people as they arrived for a swim. The only minor negative I have is that the pools around the pool access rooms do get a bit warm by the afternoon so we would go over to the main pool or the beach. Overall an excellent stay. Thank you.
