“Wonderful Vacations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

I will focus my review on things which are not mentioned so clearly in the other reviews. The Hotel is perfectly located. Actually it is directly boarding with Ramada Khao Lak Resort and Mukdara Beach Villa and Spa Resort. All 3 Hotels have directly a sandy beach in front of them. There are other hotels like the Congfa which are located directly at the sea but there is no beach so you have to climb stairs down to reach the ocean. Also within 2 minutes walk you reach the small village where you can find plenty of restaurants, Banks, ATM´s supermarkets and shops. Also 3 times in a week there is a market and it is really worth going there. The Hotel is very beautiful you have near to the beach the villas, afterwards you have 2 main buildings were the normal rooms are located and behind that buildings you have another building where the pool rooms are located. So this rooms are much more far away than the normal rooms. Also you have 2 pools one at the beach which is very beautiful and one for the pool rooms. We had a standard room and that room was perfect. It had a huge bathroom with a separated shower and a bathtub. Also the sleeping room was huge.The rooms were very clean and you had free internet (W-LAN). All personal was very friendly and service oriented. The restaurant was for my tasted a bit expensive. We had there 1 time dinner and the fish was cold. We complained and they took the fish to heat it up but until the hot fish came back the rest of the food was cold. I think here the restaurant should have a better escalation management. I would have expected that the whole dish would be replaced. Also I was very disappointed from the cocktail party. Actually there was only a non alcoholic and an a alcoholic one. Guest which had reserved for the buffet were allowed to sit in the restaurant the other ones had to stay next to the entrance. I felt not very welcomed. Beside of that I can only recommend that hotel.

We stayed here as a family of 5 for 10 nights. Its a lovely medium sized beach front hotel and what really made it for us were the pool access rooms we had. These are situated back from the beach area around their own pool and it was such a joy to be able to step out of our rooms straight into the cool water. The main pool area by the beach is also very attractive and we found the whole resort well looked after by an army of very smiley and friendly staff.

The bedrooms were well equipped and a decent size. The only downside being the king size beds which were rather hard. I did mention this at check out and they said we could have asked for a soft mattress top to try and alleviate it. I'll know next time!

Breakfasts were always good with a big range of both western and asian alternatives. The freshly cooked up omelettes a highlight. The hotel does make a good effort to offer daily bbqs and buffets in addition to the standard food menu and the satays and kebabs from the BBQ we had were delicious.

All the staff are so welcoming and friendly. I'd particularly give mention to Mickey who was always working hard to make sure we had all we wanted and also Jump who was my favourite smiley face.

We took a fantastic trip to go elephant trekking/bathing and this was well hosted by King who was our guide for the day. Not only did he drive us around, he was also very knowledgeable about the local area and was happy to take a detour to a couple of spots en route which were of interest to us

The are a good range of restaurants with a 10 min walking radius should you wish to dine out.

All in all an excellent choice for a relaxing beach front holiday.

We'd highly recommend La Flora

We stayed in this hotel at the end of our visit around Thailand and it was the perfect way to end our holiday. Staff were extremely attentive and couldn't do enough for us. A special mention to our tour guide King who was exceptional. Food and drink in the restaurant were lovely. This hotel epitomizes my idea of luxury. I would definitely return and recommend to family and friends.

I spent three nights at La Flora with my boyfriend, and it was the most precious memory for our trip in Thailand. Clean rooms and swimming pools, nice staff who always smiled at us, and a good restaurant which cooked fabulous meals. Maybe the two Asian faces were quite rare in Khao Lak, every time when we walked out, people in the street would say hi to us and show great kindness.

I really love the people in Khao Lak, and will especially thank Mickey from View 59 for his extraordinary service. We both regretted that we hadn't planned for more days at La Flora, and we decide to take our parents there on vacation next year.

Room Tip: I think a deluxe room is quite worth the price.

We stayed here for 12 nights on our honeymoon and it was amazing. The room we had (deluxe) was spacious and clean, with good air conditioning and fab views.

Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, in particular those in the restaurant which we had some lovely meals in. The location is to die for, the infinity pool right up to the beach and an easy walk into the local bars and restaurants.

We went on a great trip to phuket, we paid a little extra for a private tour and it was well worth the money. Our guide King added 2 extra stops to our schedule and was so friendly and knowledgable, we would definitely recommend this.

A must do at la flora is to try their cocktails! While we were there they had happy hour 4.30-6.30pm and 9.30-10.30pm which made them super cheap and they were delicious!

Overall a great experience, we would definitely recommend

We stayed here last November. The hotel is on a quiet road in Bang Niang, just outside of Khao Lak proper. Its situated on a wonderful sandy beach and sitting on sun loungers or at the bar was a wonderfully relaxing experience. Its easy to wander along the beach to local beach restaurants for lunch or a drink at a fraction of the hotel cost. The hotel food was good - a very good breakfast which meant you couldn't get bored on a two week stay,

We found all the staff to be friendly and helpful and the accommodation was of a good standard. You could find cheaper spas in town but it was fab and the free massage offered within 24 hours was wonderful.

We visited its sister site by the lake for a spot of relaxation - Thai massage and canoeing and were the only guests there. This was wonderful despite the mid afternoon thunder storm!
