The driveway and entrance is impressive but the receptionists did not give the famous Thai smile and just queried if we had a good flight. We had only come from Phuket so the next question was, did we need hand sanitizer! Usually, we are offered a welcome drink or a towel but nothing was offered. We were given a map...

Comes with a balcony with clothes rack (important for people who needs to dry their clothes after a day swimming or diving) and faces the lagoon housing koi fishes. The beach is just stones throw from the...

Plenty of air beds in the lovely grounds, but here's the catch. These sun beds were so uncomfortable, some guests bought air beds to act as mattresses, this really needs sorting. Hotel brilliant, staff always helpful and courteous. Khaolak itself was good, however, the mail road running through the town needs adressessing. The traffic speeds through, one set of traffic...
