Having stayed at the Merlin Beach Resort at Tri Trang near Patong Phuket a number of times, in coming to Khao Lak I thought I would stick with a trusted hotel chain.

We stayed at the hotel for 7 nights and upgraded to a pool access room which is well worth it. The rooms are cleaned to a high standard.

And the coffee was good as well (which is not always the case in Thailand). The hotel is located in a green area (that’s why... More

We stayed with them in 2014, it was absolutely wonderful stay, quiet, beautiful, clean... the only minus was the food at the resort, not too good and quite expensive, but it was ok, since the village had quite few nice cafes :) *I loved that the pools were really clean, it was a joy to swim. *Also my 1,5 year...
