Hi are there yoga lessons at the hotel?

Do they have any entertainment for New Year’s Eve?
Even if there’s not, I’d recommend celebrating in the village at Siam Tumeric or heading into Khao Lak town by taxi... you’ll find nightlife in the latter.

Hi what is the weather like out there now?
I went in September and that’s the rainy season. Was actually quite nice for most of it with a few days where it rained all day. I have also been in April which is the sunny season. I think around now it will most likely be good weather most days. Don’t let it stop you going. Still amazing

"If you want to get exchange make sure that your bills are in mint condition. A tiny rip they will not take it for exchange"
"Make sure you are not next to the building work going on next door - we were in room 4138 and the noise never bothered us."
"Superior rooms are very spacious"
"Go for a deluxe room"
"Probably best to avoid the pool rooms which are next to the building work - but saying that the work wasn't too noisy at all."
