I spent two weeks in the Palm Garden Resort Khao Lak. As many guests there I planned diving holidays (as See Beas diving center is directly on the ground of the resort), but due to a cold I had to skip diving and hence enjoyed more time in the resort.
The resort is not at the beach, but in a side street of the main road in Ban Bang Niang. Which makes it nice and quiet. The village with all its restaurants as well as the beach are in walking distance.
The resort has a beautiful garden with a very nice and large pool in the middle surrounded by nice and spatious bungalows. The pool is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the view of the adjacent hills as much as for a proper workout (25m lengths for all those who are serious about swimming). It's also fun to watch the dive classes from Sea Bees Diving do their practice in there.
The rooms are spacious, nicely equipped, in good shape and feature everything you need. Each room has a little terrace which is great to enjoy the garden view at night.
The whole team at the resort is super friendly and very attentive. The little restaurant features very nice food at a decent price.
Nevertheless it is worth to check out the abundance of restaurants in Ban Bang Niang. Ask the manager, she will be happy to give recommendations. Also check out Coconut Beach and White Sand Beach, Khao Lak Ram Nu National Park and the nice little hike to Small Sandy Beach.
Having checked out some other resorts in that area I want to say that Palm Garden Resort is not as fancy as some of the big resorts in Khao Lak, but if you prefer it more personal, private and cosy, it is the place to go. I will come back.
