“Very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014 via mobile

We stayed in an Oriental Villa for 11 nights in March 2014. We were very glad that we had chosen to stay in a villa as we had our own balcony and were able to enjoy the views - the main hotel didn't seem to have any views and seemed a bit claustrophobic. We were very lucky that by chance we had a sea view with our villa and were a 30 second walk from the beach. The villa was beautiful - spacious, airy and nicely decorated.
The hotel is in a good location in the centre of Khao Lak so you can easily walk out into town to the shops and numerous bars and restaurants.
The hotel has a beachfront restaurant serving lunch and dinner however we felt they missed a trick by not serving breakfast here as the views (and breeze) were wonderful. Breakfast is served in the centre of the resort and lacked atmosphere.
Whilst the food on site is good it is a lot more expensive than eating in the local restaurants - we found it to be at least 3 times more expensive to eat and drink in the hotel than in Khao Lak town centre. If eating out we would highly recommend:
Muanlai
The Orchid
Ao Thong Beach Restaurant
Bussaba
In all of these we enjoyed great Thai food for approx £10 - £20 for two (including drinks)

The staff in the hotel were all very nice and friendly.
The grounds are quite shady with lots of trees scattered around.
The pool in the hotel is lovely.
The beach that the hotel adjoins is lovely however we later discovered White Sand Beach some ten miles north of the hotel and this was out of this world. The sand was white and the water was stunning at this particular beach and the Ao Thong Beach Restaurant is also located here serving the best food we had all holiday.

A week spent in this hotel with my family, I am quite happy with it. We had a villa, which was just big enough to accomodate four persons, given that we spent most of the time outside our room. Reception fuctions a little better than rest of services, which I consider to bee of average quality. Cleanliness was good. Breakfast area is spread on several levels with many stairs to Climb every time you want to get something from the buffet. Staff serves coffee and tea, but not always without asking them. Breakfast buffet is the same every morning. For lunch and dinner the only option is poolside /seaside restaurant, with quitelimited menu and relatively high prices compared to restaurants outside the hotel.
The beach is very good, with fine sand and clean shallow water.
Pool area is beautiful and there were enough sunbeds, opposite to what has previously been written in Tripadvisor. It was hard to get any service to the pool area, waiters seemed to be hanging aroud the Bar instead of waiting guests at the pool.

Room Tip: The villas are better located than rooms. The villas with beachfront location seem to be the same as...

We had the most brilliant time at this resort. The accommodation and grounds are extremely good. There are several waterways full of fish around the bungalows. Breakfast was extremely good with plenty of variety and staff always had a smile. The stretch of beach is very pretty. We were only B&B as we like to try out the amazingly good beach and street restaurants. I would have said this is a 5 star except we had lunch in the hotel's beach restaurant once and it definitely didn't seem freshly cooked and was rather cold. This area is the best we have been to in Thailand. Enough to do but not at all spoilt.







The location is good as the restaurants and shops are 50 yards away.

We spent almost three weeks in the Laguna in January and would definitely stay again. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and the buildings in a traditional Thai style which we liked.You can step straight on to an amazing long beach which is clean and unspoiled. The food in the hotel is good and not overpriced, breakfast is substantial. We stayed in the Siam Chalet the room was huge and well furnished. All the staff are very friendly, polite and helpful. There is a lovely comfortable cocktail lounge that seems underused which is a shame, we enjoyed having a drink there before heading into the town [10 mins walk to many excellent restaurants] The spa is good and offers a wide range of treatments We slept really well because the bed was extremely comfortable unlike other Thai hotels where the beds were just too hard! A great time can't wait to come back.

Room Tip: We were happy with the Siam Chalet more privacy if you are upstairs.

This was my first time to Khaolak. Been to Phuket several times, but Khaolak is much quiete and peaceful!
For us, We have not much people on the beach line in front of the resort. The rooms are well cleaned but be careful with mosquitos when you open the door.
This resort have a handy craft center to support the victims of Tsunami. I do not know about other hotels, but I think this is very nice idea to do something what the hotel can do for local people.
I will visit again soon.

I booked a very basic room for the 24th & 25th of Dec after returning from a live-aboard dive trip - I needed some luxury for a few days. When I arrived at Laguna, someone messed up my reservation and there were no standard rooms available in the resort. The staff made some arrangements and showed me the way to a beach front villa. Santa Clause definitely came early in 2013 as the villa was 26,000 Bht per night. The villa was clean with a great shower. The staff was very helpful and friendly

The breakfast was really good caters for most diets. The coffee was the best I had on my 3 week stay in Thailand!!
The resort restaurant was a bit overpriced in my opinion, but I guess that is the price for eating at a restaurant on the beach.

I will return to Laguna on my next Khao Lak visit

This place is a gem! From start to finish it was wonderful staying here. When we arrived we were surprised to a room upgrade and got a bungalow which was a 30 second walk to the private beach.
The beach is lovely and clean and even though we were there a few days ago (i.e high season) it didnt seem overly crowded.
The staff there are all wonderful. So friendly and always with a solution. One receptionist in particular ( i think her name is Lao) was great with us-we had a problem with our next hotel and needed an extra night at this one which unfortunately was fully booked, she suggested a friend's hotel which was just down the road and took us there herself for us to check it out ourselves to see if it was ok. She was wonderful and really helped us out.

Just a few points:
-the room is comfortable - not luxury, but comfortable, you may spot minor signs of wear and tear.
-the fridge is really noisy
-the tv will be a retro one-meaning huge and grey and not in keeping with the room but we didnt really mind that (this is pnly in some of the rooms, not all)
-the air-con was either very cold or not on at all and i think they may not have changed the filters in a while as during our stay here both my boyfriend and I caught colds and allergic reactions, even though it was 35 degrees outside!! Its noisy as well.
These sound like petty things, but its just what I spotted and they didnt really ruin my stay.

All in all it was a great stay and i would definitely come back here and recommend to friends and family.
