My wife and I stayed at the Khaolak Bhandari from the 24th until the 30th of April 2014. I have to say it is such a beautifully maintained hotel. The buildings and rooms were lovely but the hotel gardens were just amazing. Every day the gardening team were out tidying and looking after the grounds and always with a smile and a hello. Our room was a Thai style Chalet which was very nice and with an amazing view of the gardens and the hills beyond. It was quite a view and especially when we had thunder and lightning one night when we could see the whole area light up all whilst sat in the comfort of our room. The staff at the hotel are also wonderful. Nothing is too much trouble, everyone says hello and with a big smile. A credit to the Hotel and themselves. I would certainly recommend the hotel if you are staying in Khao Lak.
