Resort in Khaolak Beach, Phang-Nga, Thailand A golden beige ribbon of sand divides the blue water of Andaman Sea from lush green coconut groves and a belt of casuarina pines and other large trees hug the beach. The resort is picturesque and a heaven for those seeking peace, quiet and relaxing holidays. The resort is modern classic design with an Asian feel. The use of space and lighting created a relaxed ambiance, one of harmony with the surrounding nature. Thai craftsmanship is evident in the natural materials used in the furniture and decor. Nestled in the heart of Pakarang Beach/ Bangsak Beach/ Haadson Beach, The Grand Southsea Khaolak Beach Resort, is an ideal spot from which to discover Khaolak area in Phang-Nga province in Thailand. From here, guests can enjoy easy access to all that the lively city has to offer. No less exceptional is the hotel's easy access to the city's myriad attractions and landmarks, such as Khaolak Bus Station, Bangsak Beach or Lampi Waterfall etc.

Stayed for 9 nights in february -20. First the positive: +Location just next to the beach, rather quiet road in between though. The beach was easy to swim. Many good thai-restaurants nearby, especially The Memories -beach bar where you could sip cocktails and watch beautiful sunsets, decent food there also. Small minimart, laundry service and scooter rental in walking distance. Bang Niang village with lots of restaurants and night market about 10-15min scooter drive away. +Quite big and relaxed pool area with lots of sunbeds. + Rooms were spacious and clean. AC and WiFi were good (when they worked). + The staff was very friendly and helpful. ... and then the negative: - The resorts overall appearance was pretty worn out and in serious need of renovation. - Had repeating issues with our rooms AC. When we arrived on the first night the AC wasn´t cooling the room at all, just recycling the hot air. So we didn’t get much sleep cause it was so hot inside. The next they we notified the staff. First they said that the problem was that we had kept the balcony door open and because of this the AC didn´t work, even though the balcony door was closed for the night. As the problem persisted we notified the staff again, this time a repairman came, did something and the AC started working. About 6 days went well but then again the same problem came back. Again we contacted the staff, repairman came and fixed the problem. - The breakfast: during the first ~4 days we were served buffet style breakfast with ok choice of western and oriental dishes. Nothing fancy but ok to get your day started. Then suddenly the breakfast changed for some reason and for the rest of our stay we were served a kind of hybrid a la carte - buffet breakfast where you had to fill a order form to get eggs, cereals, cheese etc. served to your table, while toast, fruits, coffee and juices you would still get ”buffet style”. - Spotty service during breakfast: sometimes everything went well, but frequently breakfast items we ordered never came, boiled eggs ordered ”medium” sometimes came as if they hadn`t been cooked at all, and sometimes overcooked. Buffet frequently ran out of items like toast, juices and fruit etc even though the place wasn`t crowded at all. - Spotty WiFi: sometimes the WiFi worked excellently, but frequently it didn´t. In conclusion it was a ok stay and for the most part we enjoyed our time there, but probably wouldn`t stay again.

The hotel staff were very welcoming and the location was great - about 20 metres from a very quiet but beautiful beach. But the hotel itself needs a little care. It looks as though it has not been updated in recent seasons. There are main parts of the hotel closed off and not used. Events that don't run because too few guests and no free shuttles to Khao Lak centre. I would not class it is a 5 star hotel. Also, we booked a room only through a third party provider which was a mistake. The breakfast was not overly impressive but the hotel wanted to charge 550 baht per person per day to add it. This is astonishingly overpriced for what it was. Instead we ate breakfast at local restaurants for a tenth of the price although there are not very many alternatives close by.

We should just stop for a night, but decided to change plans, and booked here 5 days. Area was so near perfect than is possible: clean, long beach with so few people, that it feels like privat, and there is still all good sides of Mass-tourism (excellent Restaurants, good quality hotels and all services). ”Nightlife” is like smooth jazz and ocean waves with drinks, or some fire-show on beach, so this is a dream for ”old-farts” like us, who just like to relax and take it easy

I travelled to Thailand in 2016 with my at the time boyfriend and have to give this hotel, a well respected 5/5 rating. We went in May-June "monsoon season" but this was not the case, the weather was great with one or two occasions where it did rain. (apologies is there are any grammar errors, this was a quick type up) The hotel we came across was by total mistake online, we were due to stay somewhere else but hotels.com had been advertising a hotel that didn't exist anymore and so we were transferred here and I am so glad we did! We arrived after a long flight, in the late late hours of the night but the staff at the reception were on their feet at the door, the moment they saw our car. Waiting for us with warm hot towels to refresh and water. They took our luggage and swiftly checked us in, accommodating any request we wanted, such has food after the very long trip. The hotel from first view, driving in the dark, was fantastic! It was well maintained within the tropical trees and foilage of Khao Lak. Their are lots of decorative, cultural siginificant pieces of art and ornaments that really gave us the feeling of authenticity that the people here are very much locals and want us to be incorporated into the Thai culture. We were shown to our room and as two gay men, this can be an awkward one. Usually you would have the award moment of having to explain you want one bed and not two singles but the Thai people and culture are one of the most accepting in the world that I have come across. The staff did not question us for "two men need two single beds" they were polite, they showed us our fantastic beach view room, explained the various appliances including the much needed aircon and how to get their assistance if needed. We had an amazing room and we were thirsty, so had called in for some bottles of water to be delivered to the room, which came instantly! At this point we realised when the hospitality staff member explained, we were the ONLY PEOPLE IN THE HOTEL! It was out of season and the tourists were expected in a few weeks. We had the most amazing time, the restaurant was delicious, the pool was perfect temperature and the beach was around 30m. The rooms were cleaned daily and beds made, which we left tips to thank for. Food such as fruit and water were replenished and towels we requested were left for sustainable reasons, which they understood. The menu is great and local restaurants are a simple cheap tuk tuk 10 minutes away to the main road where the bars, local restaurants, shops and a great market for all the necessary things on a Thai visit. I have never experienced such a high level of hospitality, quality of care in a hotel and standard of quality of rooms. The staff were teaching us Thai and we were asking for tourist advice, we were recommended trips to the bond island, Phuket, khao Samui phi phi islands, Khao Lak national park and more...all of which they helped recommend very good prices with local travel and tourist businesses. I would go back here any day, every day of the year. If anyone has had a bad experience here, I can honestly say that it would shock me. 100000% The Grands Southsea is your best retreat or explorer trip!

Well what can I say? Please don’t believe all the good reviews! My husband & I have done lots of travelling in our 47years of marriage! We decided to go to Thailand to experience a different type of holiday which we were very much looking forward to! We are normally in a 4 or 5star hotel so know what to expect! Room was very basic! Shower was a concrete wall open to the room! The bed had a damp feeling think it was with the poor air conditioning! The headboard was all chipped & marked, the wardrobe didn’t even have a door just a curtain & at this point I thought this might be the standard for Thailand! I could go on & on! I thought well let’s see what it’s like in the daytime all I can say is it was not much better! Poor breakfast selection! The beds around the pool were nice but there were only about a dozen & obviously we arrived in the early hours of morning so didn’t go to breakfast until about 8.30am so that was us no beds left! So we decided to go for a walk along the beach which was beautiful! The hotel next door was only 4star but wow that’s what I had expected! The rooms were airy & well conditioned beautiful white bed linen breakfast was a joy to go to with such a large selection of food! Lots of sun beds & umbrellas for everyone! Staff were lovely & helpful! Will definitely go back to the APSARA IN KOA LAK Thank god we found it & ended up having an absolutely brilliant holiday! Thank you Mr Golf & staff! Apsara should be 5star!
