We spent a fortnight here in April 'en famille' -2 adults and 2 teenagers. The hotel staff were lovely - very smiley and helpful. The rooms were spacious and clean, and, whilst the hotel is slightly labyrinthine (I got lost a few times!), it makes sense very quickly. The jungle rainforest features throughout the hotel and is well tended. The... More

The Khaolak Merlin was the third hotel we stayed in while on Honeymoon in Thailand. They went the extra mile to place flowers on our bed and in the bathtub (which was amazing btw) and made us feel special from the moment we arrived. The staff members were friendly and professional and the entire hotel was like a jungle maze... More

This hotel is like living in the wild.set in the middle of a tropical rainforest and the way the hotel rooms are set out with the design and the waterfalls that link the pools. It's like paradise. When we arrived we had the chance to be given a upgrade to a pool deluxe room (take if you can)cost a little... More

We had a week here after a few nights in Bangkok. It's about an hour away from Phuket Airport. Hotel is lovely, I'd definitely get a pool access room again as it's basically like having a private pool, especially coming here in low season as it's not packed out. We stayed B&B but had dinner a couple of times in... More

The Merlin is located in the southern part of Khao Lak and is in area with another 3 resorts along with a Soi with a number of local... More
