“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2009

Just got back from what can only be described as a wonderful holiday at this wonderful hotel.
Arrived there to find out that we were being given a free upgrade to a seaview deluxe bungalow. Check in was very quick. Got a lift with our luggage to the room which we were grateful for.

The bungalow was very comfortable and included everything you couls want.

The food in the hotel restaurant was very good and reasonable money wise. The drinks at the bar was also reasonable.

There was some work going on while we were there but it did not spoil our holiday at all.
The hotel was getting things ready for the start of the season.

After about 7 days we were told we was going to have to move rooms because they were doing some work in the ajoining bungalow and get this they moved us to a beachfront jacuzzi bungalow.

The staff were fantastic nothing was too much trouble even going to the shop and buying a thai BBQ pot for me to take home.

I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone and will definately be going back there again.

One more thing if you are into wildlife or birdwatching this place will be ideal I even managed to see a kingfisher while sitting round the pool.

We chose Khao Lak Resort after much research into almost all resorts at Khao Lak. Khao Lak resort turned out to be the one which gives you the most optimal mix of location, service, room ambience and cost. It was the only place without any major negative reviews by previous travellers. And it turned out to be a good choice.

The resort itself is quite huge and extremely well maintained. The staff was really courteous and polite with smiles all the way. We had booked a deluxe bungalow right besides the swimming pool and it sure was lovely. Khao Lak resort has a very "natural" theme and feel to it...lot of bamboo woodwork in the room which had a nice fragrance to it. Of course, the amenities were all there and the room service was quick and efficient. We ordered our meals the first night and it was very well presented and delicious.

We liked it very much over there since it was off season and there were no crowds in Khao Lak centre which is what we wanted. The only thing that got us disappointed a little was that the beach in front of the resort was a bit rocky and the sand was not that fine. But apart from this, the resort is an excellent place to stay - good ambience, good staff, good ambience, good service.

  • Liked — Cleanliness, good views, amenities, courteous and polite staff
  • Disliked — Sea view was obstructed a bit, but that was due to the bungalow type we had chosen.
