“A truely pleasant experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

We spent 9 days at Bhandari, the staff were brilliant, nothing was too much to ask, room was wonderful, nice and relaxing and can't recommend the spa highly enough. We will definitely be heading back. Its away from the Chaos of Phuket, yet still close enough to be able to head in for a day if you feel like it.

Bhandari Resort is lovey, very quiet. We would stay here again, it was just what we needed to unwind. The staff are very friendly an helpful. Easy to organise transport for day trips to Phuket from reception.

Four of us stayed at the Khao Lak resort last week. It was well located and the staff provided a great service. We would recommend this place for a relaxing stay and will definitely go back. There is a short 5 -10 minute walk to the local town. Do go to the white sands beach for swimming as the local beach has been eroded.

Room Tip: Go for a pool side room!

Nothing wrong with this hotel... just that the beach, approx. 100 meters away, wasn't clean (nor was the walk to the beach). We wouldn't go there for some days at the beach but there's nothing wrong with this hotel.

Room Tip: Good place for a stay when visiting several national parks but when you want to go to Kao Sok nation...

Thank you very much for your review and feedback on tripadvisor. Due to the beach in front of the hotel is public beach and now is monsoon season therefore the beach is not so nice during this period, however I will inform our gardener to take care the cleanliness of the beach more often.

Thank you very much for choosing us on your recent stay and we are looking forward to welcome you back again in the future

My wife and I came here for our belated honeymoon in November last year. We had picked this hotel due to it looking "thai" rather than just a generic anywhere in the world hotel.

On arrival we were greeted by the reception staff and given a lovely cold flannel and fruit juice. The bags were taken by the bellboy and we were escorted to the bungalow that we had booked.

The room was gorgeous with a separate bathroom. The shower is very basic but does the job so nothing at all to complain about.

The hotel is perfectly situated to get onto the main strip and the beach whilst still being far enough away to be beautifully peaceful.

The staff were amazing and could not do enough to help you. We especially liked Sak and Pond who were really friendly and helpful.

The pool is lovely and shade is available if wanted as it does get extremely hot. The food served at the Pool restaurant is good. We preferred the Thai meals such as the Pad Thai and it was not badly priced, although more expensive than going to eat out at the amazing beach restaurants.

Drinks out of the mini bar were well priced which was nice as you could sit outside with a beer and enjoy without having to worry about the cost.

We did not eat at the restaurant to the front of the hotel as we liked to get out and try the restaurants in the town and the food being cooked on the side of motorbikes (which I must say was some of the best food).

Overall we had a really good honeymoon although we did not get the best weather (we did go in November) but still had a great time.

Room Tip: It is definitely worth paying that little extra for a bungalow. They are not connected in any way to...

We stayed at the hotel in March,everyone at the hotel very friendly,people in the western world should really take a lesson from these people on giving a service. The pool was very relaxing,beach near by. We never ate at the restaurant at night but the breakfast was very good and plentiful. There is lots of places near by in the town only 5 minutes away. This was our first trip to Thailand and we are glad we chose Khao Lak,done elephant trekking and Similian Islands trip which was spectacular,highly recomend. We hope to return to Thailand very soon...
