First of all I just want to what a amazing time my friends and I had in this resort. The staff at this hotel really go out of their way to make sure that you have the most relaxing and care free experience possible. From the moment you sit down at the breakfast table to walking back to your room getting ready for bed, you will see warm welcoming smiles from every staff member. By the end of our 5 days stay, we were refered to by our names. Can't get more personal than that. Most places we go to, I don't think any of the staff will know our names. The personal attention to detail is impressive. One particular person that is worth mentioning/ highlighting, is Tony, who is the general manager there. This guys knows all the best places to go to, whether for relaxation, adventure or food. He practically planned and reserved everything for us. If we did not know how to order certain dishes, he would call up the restaurant and tell the manager there to reserve the dishes for us. I remember on one occasion, a couple tried to stay a few more nights at the hotel but couldn't because the resort was fully booked. So Tony arranged for them to stay at a beautiful island resort and confirmed all the bookings and transportation for them.
The rooms were immaculate, spacious and cosy. Just take a look at the photos.
If you are looking for a romantic getaway or just a fun and relaxing time with friends or a family holiday, that is away from the busy tourist areas like phuket, then Khao Lak is the place to go, and the Orchid Beach resort is the place to stay in.
I also recommend going island hoping to Similian Islands. The beaches were amazing. Sands that resemble flour. It's paradise. I would recommend going with Fanastic Similian Islands tour. Had such a memoriable experience.
