“Lovely staff and everything you need!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

A very nice place! We spend 6 nights at the resort, the first 7 days if a two week family vacation.

First if all a very friendly staff, but also nice pool, nice spa and the beach only 30 meters away. The hotel restaurant even served at the beach (and the pool).

Stayed December 2013

We stayed 2 nights there having a great deal via booking.com. For 1000B, this was just fantastic, very nice villa in a natural surrounding with an excellent pool and a great buffet breakfast. The size of the resort is very reasonable which makes it intimate and the staff is very nice. This is really a perfect place for people looking for peacful holidays not too close from the mass tourism action!
There is really no negative point. the owners have done everything perfectly. Just do not go there if you want to party, go out....

Room Tip: The cooconut villa are less expansive and to our mind better than the villas overlooking the lake

I recently visited Haadson Resort in Khao Lak with my mom and my boyfriend. We had 2 seperate villas, both equally stunning with great amenities including an outdoor shower, an extremely large and comfortable bed, and a cute balcony which overlooks the river, perfect to sit and have a drink whilst taking in the silence of nature.

The staff are all so friendly and welcoming and are available to assist with transport and other local information. They offer a shuttle service in to town to drop and collect you so that you can enjoy the shopping, spas and restaurants on offer.

There is a restaurant at the resort which offers a nice selection of food, we had the vegetable tempura to start with and it was fantastic! I would definitely recommend eating there. The breakfast selection was also very tasty!

The resort is located just meters from the beach, which is absolutely stunning. It was all October stormy skies when we were there but we could still appreciate the beauty - such an untouched and long beach!

All in I think I can speak for all 3 of us when I say we absolutely loved our stay at the resort, I would definitely stay there again.

If you are looking for a beautiful and quiet boutique style resort where you can escape the city and enjoy the sounds of nature, Haadson Resort is a must for you.

Other amenities on offer: beautiful swimming pool, day spa.

Room Tip: All rooms are stunning, but would try get a villa along the river.

The main perk of this place is its boutique nature. This is not one of the resorts for big families with activity groups, hence it is more quiet and relaxed. The fact that it is far away from other places is also a blessing for those looking to relax without tourists and shops and parties. That said, since it is far away from everything else, one needs to travel to get to places, other than the three small, local restaurants around. It would be great had it been beachfront, for better views. Still, rooms are clean, so are the bathrooms. A bit dated but absolutely ok. A decent 3 stars with a good breakfast option. One minus: the bicycles offered were in such deplorable state that I cannot believe they did not change them.

With a lovely beach right across a, not very wide and not very busy road (more of a beach path).
I had some reservations after reading the review saying that the resort had bad food, was over a road from the beach and taxi's were expensive. The food in the restaurant with both the International and Thai menu was so good that I was excited at every mealtime to try something else. We went to Black and Whites down the road and into Khao Lak and a few other resorts for food, but with Haadson atmosphere, setting and food was top notch and normal Thai prices.
We arrived at midnight they collected us from the airport and were waiting up with a lovely welcome for us. The lanterns in the trees were so beautiful and the peaceful setting meant we relaxed immediately.
We had a baby (toddling) and a 4 year old who both enjoyed it immensely. We never felt like we had to be quiet as all the staff and guests were really friendly and got to know our children, & played with them. The pool was perfect for us, beautiful setting and very shallow in shallow end, our little ones could easily paddle about.
The rooms were big enough for a cot and a small bed, looked good and worked well with the football pitch sized garden out from (with no steps) for our little ones to run around and explore the massive plants. We enjoyed cocktails on our patio once the little ones were in bed and it was lovely to sit and look out onto the gardens.
The Corner Sala (outdoor bit of the spa) worked well for us rather than the corner spa, we could book in last minute for a half hour back and head massage for only 250B
Taxis were 350-400 one way to Khao Lak and were easy to find.
Totally different feel to the rest of Khao Lak and Phuket. We will be back.

Room Tip: If you have Children a Coconut room on ground floor works well as they can run around outside whilst...

Read some bad reviews about how far away it is to khao lak and you pay London taxi fares to the centre of town. Also charging 190bht for a bottle of beer......RUBBISH. We wanted a relaxing hotel and we got that, a lovely place right on the beach...beer is. 90bht and the taxi cost 400bht ...the rooms are great and food is good.
