Reviews Summary

Powered by AI
Moracea by Khao Lak Resort is celebrated for its serene atmosphere and picturesque beachfront setting, despite some warnings about the steep hillside location. Travelers commend the resort for its clean rooms and attentive staff, though some feel the rooms could benefit from modern updates and maintenance. While the quality of food and range of pools are highlights, guests suggest there's room for improvement in amenity variety and sunbed cleanliness. Many guests recommend avoiding half or full board options, citing better value at nearby eateries.

The Moracea is a really nice and well-kept hotel. We had a bungalow that was really modern and inviting. The breakfast also had a very good selection. The location of the hotel is very good. The only negative point was that some of the loungers were reserved very early.

Dear Chris M, I hope you have a safe flight home now. Thank you very much for choosing us to be your special memory of holiday in Khaolak. It's very glad to hear from you, Chris. Thank you again for your promise that you will post reviews for us. It's so happy to see you great feedback. In the part about sun loungers, we realized that too difficult to handle. However, we have more beach bags for spare on every day as well. We are looking forward to see you at Moracea by Khaolak Resort on your next vacation. Please bring your friends or family here. Have a great day!. Best regards, Chayanit Chusuwan (Oil) Resident Manager

Had a 5 day stay at the Moracea. Couldn't fault a thing. We stayed b&b and found a number of good restaurants a 10 minute walk away. Taxis were cheap and plenty of them if you want to go to the night Market or elsewhere. The staff were amazing, nothing too much trouble. We had a small issue with an alarm going off just after midnight, a maintenance person was down in less than 5 minutes and sorted it straight away. We were warned about the gradients and steps but found them not as bad as we had heard. There is also a buggy to take you wherever you want day and night. We would definitely stay at this hotel again.

We can highly recommend the Moracea. This was our first time in Khao Lak and the resort was excellent. The room was well equipped and comfortable, albeit the bed was very firm (but that is usually the case throughout Asia anyway and I was fine with it after a couple of nights). The restaurants are excellent, with delicious food and the staff very professional and definitely hard working! The facilities at the resort were excellent. The day spa in particular was a stand out and very highly recommended. We stayed in February and whilst the resort was quite busy, we found the pools and restaurants and other facilities were always available when we wanted them. The gym is much better than other resorts I have stayed at and nicely air-conditioned. The resort is set in the hillside, so there are many steps and steep pathways/roads to walk up (might not need to use the gym!), which may be challenging for anyone who is not fit or has mobility limitations, however, the staff do have vehicles to collect you and take you where you need to go, including to the restaurants and reception etc. The location was perfect for beach walks and very easy to get a taxi (reception called them), to go into Khao Lak centre. Overall, we had a fantastic relaxing stay and would happily return.

Lovely time at this resort. So relaxing laying by the pool. Just a shame people put towels out very early in the morning to mind loungers. Food was great with lots of choice. Will definitely return agai soon.

So we stayed in this resort for 5 nights and although it wasn’t major disappointment it wasn’t wow either. First of all, nothing luxurious about this resort as they claim in marketing materials. Maybe the nature and how it is situated within the jungle, but the rest is average 3* hotel lacking attitude with somehow distant staff. Food was terrible especially from a la carte restaurants. Both lunch and dinners were below average. Complimentary Thai dinner was below any critique, something not to remember for long. Beach was stony and not so pleasant. In the morning it was very hard to get a sun-bed. Honestly for a hotel the claims to be “luxurious” this shouldn’t have been an issue. Yet it was and very annoying. General clientele of this establishment - AI tourists from Germany and UK (most likely purchased their stay through travel agent), and unless you are retiree I suggest you think twice before booking with them.

Wonderful first night in Thailand. After a long day of travel from london to Phuket via Bangkok, we needed a good start to decompress. Moracea and their wonderful zeavola bungalow by the beach was a fab start. Beautiful clean room and a choice of multiple bars and restaurants with good prices for drinks and food. Albeit we only stayed one night as a transit hotel to Khao Sok we were sad we weren’t staying for longer.

Superb holiday, beautiful location, fantastic helpful staff, my wife and I stayed in a poolside bungalow which was exceptional, and on par with beach bungalow in Maldives. We were all inclusive and very pleasantly surprised to see lunch and dinner was a la carte, only breakfast was buffet style. The food was out of this world, with plenty of choice. Cleanliness top class, very enjoyable holiday

We stayed here for four nights last week & unfortunately it’s not the 5* luxury hotel that we thought we’d booked. It was by far our most expensive beach stay and to put into price comparison, it was only £25 cheaper a night to stay here than at the Shangri- La in Bangkok. We arrived to our room, the building looked like it was falling apart / in desperate need of a repair and our room was mouldy and smelt damp. We spoke to reception who luckily upgraded us to a Jasmine Bungalow late the next day but unfortunately that room still smelt damp. The staff when I initially complained weren’t very polite and asked me what I’d like them to do about the room, but eventually the team upgraded us & compensated us slightly. I wouldn’t recommend staying at this hotel, unless you have a really good deal! The pools are lovely and the beach is great (there is a beach bar just a couple minutes from the hotel) but the quality of the rooms and the yellow parts of the hotel were really disappointing for the money we spent! Also, the town of Khao Lak is on a four lane busy road which feels a shame. Overall, we enjoyed the pools, the beach, beach bar a few minutes from the hotel and the sunset but wouldn’t stay again or recommend anyone else to.

Really enjoyed our stay at the Moracea. It was so relaxing. We had a swim up room around the butterfly pool, which was lovely. Beautifully decorated and lots of space. We were bed and breakfast. The breakfast was really good, with plenty of choice to suit anyone. We only ate at the hotel on one night, food was delicious. The hotel is on a pretty, picturesque stretch of beach. The only issue was sunbed reservation. We are early risers and would be on the beach by 8.00 most mornings, but even at that time most of the beds had towels on them. However, this didn't spoil our stay and there is plenty of beach to put a towel on.
