We selected the Countryside more on price than any prior knowledge of Khao Lak or extensive reading of other reviews.
We knew it was only 200m from the beach, down a narrow walkway. The sunset over the Andaman Sea awaits you there. It is also at the end of town commonly known as Khao Lak City! Hardly a city but plenty of choice when it comes to restaurants and bars and shops, which are only 10 minutes walk from the Countryside.
The nice thing we found about this hotel was how peaceful it was. Lovely gardens and pool area made for a relaxing stay. We booked a deluxe double room, but switched to a standard after a few days. This worked out as aside from the room size being hardly that different we had a nice upstairs balcony with a lovely view of the tropical canopy. Far nicer than the deluxe room we'd had.
The staff were always helpful and friendly. The breakfast included was Thai international, standard and reliable.
We'd certainly go back to the Countryside to stay. The only reason we give it 4 stars was due to the house Orchid restaurant. Its nice setting was however a bit pricey and the food not half as nice when compared with some restaurants we found very nearby.
