“Fourth visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

Just returned from our fourth stay at the Ramada. Stayed for the last 6 days of a multi-centre holiday to Cambodia & Thailand, to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary.To recognise this, the hotel had decorated our bed with a greeting made from petals, and flowers, as well as preparing the bath with orchid flowers, and surrounding with candles- all very sweet & romantic!
We love the Ramada, still as good as ever. Reasons we like it are:-
On a great stretch of beach, but close to many restaurants/mini marts/market.
Khaolak is a nice quiet/family friendly resort, not built up with high rise buildings or noisy clubs/bars, plus the Ramada is a nice size- not too big and sprawling.
Breakfasts are FABULOUS- cannot be beaten. so much choice!
All the staff are helpful and friendly, and it is obvious they are happy and proud to work at the Ramada.
Bicycles are available to use free of charge, and are of a very good standard.
On site Spa- enjoyed a facial whilst there- very professional & enjoyable.
Great place!

Very good hotel. It is 5-min walking distance from the street's bars, restaurants and massage parlours. The room and bathroom were quite big. Big verandah to laze and relax. The pool overlooks the sea and is perfect to spend the day relaxing in and around it. The restaurant is lovely for sunset drinks because it overlooks the sea! Menu prices are competitive with the other neighbouring restaurants and not as noisy. The breakfast buffet was very good with lots of variety. What stood out was the Eco friendliness of the hotel and it's amenities. Really appreciated that. Overall, preferred this hotel to

This was our second time at the Ramada Resort and Spa Hotel, i can recommend this Hotel and Resort if you are looking for a lovely relaxing holiday away from the more busy resorts of Phuket and Patong.The hotel is in a great location on the beautiful beach but within walking distant to plenty of Bars and Restaurants. From stepping into the Hotel to Leaving the staff cannot do enough for you,always pleasent and happy to help. Toh who runs the pool area is a great guy and an asset to this hotel always pleasent greats you everyday with a wonderful smile and makes sure your happy with your sunbeds umbrellas drinks etc. Bow and Nid at reception are extremely helpful. On our arrival we were upgraded to a beach front Villa which was a lovely surprise and if you were ever to stay in one you would not be disappointed fabulous to wake up draw the curtains back and see the ocean. After nine nights we had to move and we gor upgrarded again to a Villa with its own pool amazing !!!!!!!! Thankyou for looking after us Ramada.The hotel and gardens are well maintained and there is security on sight at all times. You have the use of free cycle hire,although given the heat you wont get far!!!!
Plenty of restaurants to recommend our Favourite being Raebang on the road out of our Hotel lovely food pleasant staff and very cheap. Green Pepper near the market is also excellent as is The Garden Restauarant. Plenty of trips available at a reasonable price and great massage huts on the beach. If you are looking for a place to unwind and recharge then Kho Lak is the place we will be back.

First impressions are very important to us and this left us all breathless from the warm welcome to the luxurious room to the stunning view. Nothing was too much effort from all the staff to ensure our stay was memorable - always smiling and ready to help. The breakfast was first class with every possible variation available and after breakfast making our way to the pool area where Toh and his team made sure we did not lift a finger to secure the desired beds and that plenty of fresh towels were at our disposal. The daily happy hours !! we're great value and we soon became regulars..
We cannot fault this hotel and deserve all the praise and a top rating - a definite recommend from us.

Room Tip: Deluxe Doubles facing the pool/ sea on the same level as the reception were perfect in every way

Me and my wife spent a lovely week in this resort during our honeymoon.
We chose a superior deluxe but just arrived they said us welcome and upgraded our room into an ocean's suite: so cool!
It was very comfortable:
wide room, clean and well equipped.
Jacuzzi in a separate room, very spacious!
Bedroom was nice.
We had a porch with two sun beds and a direct view of the sea.
Sweet and peaceful garden, swimming pool with bar, different kind of restaurants where you can choose among various kind of menu (thai, international, Seafood).

Breakfast was great, a dedicated waiter used to prepare us juice with fresh fruits.

It is not very close to the centre but just 400 mt far from the Market Where you can find all you want (also just cooked food)
Staff is qualified and helpful.

Negative aspect: sea is not like Phi Phi Island.

Recommended for relax!

Hi Federicopilenga

Great hotel, modern and clean rooms, beautiful beach and kindly staff! That's all you need to say about Ramada Khao Lak. Extra-Service: free bike-renting to explore the neighborhood with it's shops and restaurants. Note that most of them are closed in low season!

We visited in 2013 with our children and had a fabulous time. We decided to return in 2014, mainly so the kids could see the fabulous Toh and the pool bar team. We were not disappointed. The hotel was as beautiful and welcoming and the first time we visited. The pool was great, the food was amazing, and the room was comfortable. We were delighted to be welcomed with a "welcome home" message on the bed and to be recognised by many of the staff. The only disappointment was that the activities that were available last year (most beach football) were available this year. This was mostly to do with the extension of happy hour which interrupted time for the pool bar team to do activities.

Hi Vanessa

Thank you for your review and comments here on TA. I appreciate your feedback and it is wonderful to hear that you returned for a second time.
Some activities will be changed in terms of timings so to bypass the happy hour and if we have enough guests interested to join the activities ;-)

Our team hopes to welcome you back also for a third time,
