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:
Ao Thong Beach Restaurant
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.
