Just a spot
Jul 2019
Its one of the few options you have to go when staying at that area. couple of souvenir shops, mart, local fruit stall, seafood restaurant. They bring in elephants at night so you can feed them at 100baht a plate.

Elephants being exploited
Apr 2019 • Couples
Had dinner nearby - two baby elephants kept out for hours earning baht in the shopping centre at night. Don't go. Would leave a bad review for the elephant 'home' nearby but they don't have a TripAdvisor page 😡

Don’t go !!! Was disgusted to see 2 baby elephants tied up to chairs very distressed making awfull noises ! This is not what people want to see anymore ! They were clearly in a lot of distress shaking and rocking !
Didn’t stay to eat or drink after seeing this it’s just some tacky shopping plaza

Stop with the Elephants!
Feb 2019 • Friends
Staying down the road and have passed by a couple of times in the evening. Was really sad to see on each occasion baby elephants with their handlers. I think they're advertising some sort of 'sanctuary and mainly stand outside the Fisherman restaurant but one hangs out in the plaza. It is NOT cool. They're only small, have chains around their necks and look super stressed. Please please please stop this cruelty. We heard other tourists at our hotel a few nights ago saying how cruel it was too and now we've seen for ourselves. They're so sweet but don't deserve to be kept like this for the sake of tourists

Doesn't offer much except for a farmer's fruit stall with a good variety of fresh local fruit and two restaurants

Nothing much
Jun 2018 • Friends
Give this a miss! Really nothing much here at all. A small manicure/hair salon but when asked if we could have a hair cut, they said they don’t do that!
The only gem was a small souvenir shop that had a good selection of floats and kids clothes so we managed to pick something up.
Seafood restaurant that didn’t look very interesting.

Quiet Shopping Mall
Apr 2018 • Family
Consists of a few shops, there is a seafood restaurant which is overpriced,a spa Serenity spa which is cheaper than the spa at Marriott & the Anantara, but still expensive compared to the spas at Patong. The convenience spa is cheaper than Turtlemart at Turtle Village. There is a fruits stall at entrance to Mai Khao Plaza which is not too expensive,you can get mangoes at 100 bahts a kilo, you get 3 mangoes for 1 kilo sure beat the price at Turtlemart which is 100 bahts for one miserable mango & its oh so sweet I bought 2 kilos

Overpriced and dull but still beats the Turtle Village nearby
Mar 2018 • Solo
The only positive thing about this place is that the supermarket offers better deals than the one in the nearby Turtle Village. Other than that, there is nothing much to do there. There is a very poorly stocked souvenir shop, couple of "boutiques" with seriously overpriced and tasteless bric-a-brac of very low value, an estate agent, and a couple of eateries/bars. I won't recommend eating there: the prices are ridiculously high while the food is below average. You'll be much better off if you opt for a beach shack meal (5-10 min walk from there maximum) - the shacks are right on the beach near Anantara and on the service road that leads to the Anantara's service entrance (a slip-road that starts right behind the Shell petrol station nearby). Food there is of much better quality and very decently priced. Overall, the Mai Khao Plaza is a dull, dusty, overpriced place with no character at all. That's the reason why it is always almost completely empty.
