This hotel has the coolest design I've ever seen. The whole resort is covered with connected pools! I understand why they named it Waters. I had a room with upper pool access but would definitely go for one with lower access if I booked again. Since there are quite a few different pools you are only sharing your giant pool...

Stayed for 6 nights in a pool access room. Room location was great, everything I had requested in a very quiet area at the end of the resort. Nice having pool access to move sunbed into the sun to sunbathe at although we had 3 days of constant rain which is pretty unusual. Bed in room was massive & very...

I have decided to book this place for 4 nights based on the rave reviews. When we first arrived, there were 3 gentlemen working at the desk and yet none of them welcomed here?" SO he asked for our passports with no smile. Instead one of them greeted us with this look on his face: "What are you doing here?"...

We had pool access room and it was so worth the price! This made our vacation so much easier because if you want to swim or take some sun you dont need to go to the beach everytime. Breakfast was so awesome and the restaurant was really good. Location of the hotel was very convinient.

We stayed at The Waters Khao Lak for 1 night while we were in Thailand in November. We were staying in the area in order to do a snorkeling trip to the Similan Islands. This was the perfect spot for us and we had an incredible time spending one day there. We got a pool access room, which was quite...

The Waters Khao Lak is by far one of the top hotels I stayed in during my Thailand holiday. Large rooms, very friendly and helpful staff, relaxing environment (adult-only hotel), gorgeous pools all around (plenty of sun-beds), delicious breakfast and the location is perfect (within walking distance to restaurants, the beach and the Bang Niang market). I extended my stay...

We visited the resort in January 16 when it was almost brand new/just refurbished. The resort looked great but had a few teething issues. The pools were lovely but there weren't enough sun loungers. Bar was very overpriced. Bay romance room did not have an uplift from the monochrome days - we loved the style but it was a bit...
