We visited in July, which is low season and stayed 11 nights. Positives: we got an interesting deal on a mobile device at the hotels website. ( not available on a laptop). Very good breakfast, great swimming pools, nice comfortable room. There are quite some good restaurants nearby. ( you don't have to take a taxi, all within walking distance).... More

We paid the extra to have a pool access room and it was well worth it. We walked straight out onto a little covered terrace and then one step down to our second terrace which was 15 cm deep in the water. The lounges could go on either terrace. Then we were in a 25 metre pool. About 6 pool... More

We love staying here! It was newly built. The staffs were nice and neat. The swimming pool was clean and big. Every room is connected to the water just like its name. The food here was just ok. We prefer eating out while we were in Khaolak because there were so many great places here.

We arrived this afternoon and the concierge was very welcoming he spoke very good English and all the staff were friendly and smiling. We booked a pool access room and as the hotel was made aware I would be writing a review on the hotel I was a little surprised to be placed at the very far rooms but thought... More

This stay was much anticipated as we had booked in 2015 when it was Monochrome Resort. This booking was subsequently cancelled on us when Katathani group took ownership and commenced renovations. We had booked a Bay Romance room. The standard Bay rooms, Romance rooms and the Grand Bay Suites are located in the Bay Wing, the original Monochrome 5 storey... More

We stayed here for 5 nights beginning of May. Good location. Our check in was quite okay, there was a few people checking in at the same time, we had to wait a little bit to be shown to our room, but we survived. We were given 2 keys for our room, which was good. We stayed in the Bay... More

We used the resort last weekend, for the first time for our Staff trip. Even though we were unlucky with the weather it did not hide the fact that the hotel performed wonderfully. They were extremely attentive and very professional in all they did. We were a large group with 1 or 2 demands which were met head on and... More

This was our 4th time to Khao Lak, but first time close to the town center itself. We have previously stayed at the JW Marriott (twice) and Sentido Graceland, and from a hotel perspective the Waters, while definitely not as good as the Marriott was a great option.. The hotel itself is quite new, but already some of the workmanship... More
