“Will be back!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2012 via mobile

Just returned from an amazing week at the Beyond.

It was the most relaxing week ever!

The villas are spacious, immaculate and well thought out. For example there are plug sockets next to the bed (which so many hotels fail to have), complimentary bottled water delivered daily and fresh pool towels delivered to the rooms directly rather than ridiculous voucher/deposit schemes. We upgraded to the Premier villa and loved the day bed and extra touches.

The pool area is amazing. Beautifully landscaped and a very impressive array of pools. The fixed position sunbeds initially took getting used to but by day two I loved them. For serious sunbathers a second type of sunbed was also available. Plenty of sunbeds available regardless if you have a holiday lie in.

This was our fourth time to the Thailand and the beach by the Beyond surpasses everything else we have seen! Wonderful beach and the Beyond has the best spot on it.

Some language barriers with team in the bar and restaurant, however, the smiles and friendliness of the Beyond Team make up for any difficulties! Their English million times better than my Thai so can't grumble!

We loved the restaurants on the beach near the hotel. The best ones were at the end of the beach past the Le Meriden and the first one past the wooden bridge. The one nearest the hotel was the least friendly with only average food.

Food and drink in the hotel good. Enjoyed the Happy 90 mins 1700 onwards, especially in the swim up bar.

Loved the fact the hotel was adult only and really good mix of nationalities.

This is a really special hotel. Having stayed with rival hotel groups in Thailand (Banyan Tree Phuket and Sala Samui), the Beyond Khao Lak is the one I will return to. Thanks for an amazing stay!

We stayed at Beyond Resort Khao Lak for one week in December 2012 with a group attending a retreat. What a great choice the organiser of the retreat made! My husband daughter and I had the best holiday ever.
We had previously travelled throughout Thailand but never to Khao Lak so this was new adventure. The staff are beautiful Thai people, friendly, gentle, helpful and always had a smile. Though English is not their first language, they made a real effort to understand us and make our holiday especially memorable. The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable.
The pools, gardens and facilities were exceptionally well maintained and the atmosphere was magic. We returned home with photos from around the resort which our family thought were postcards. Each afternoon we had drinks on the beach, while the magnificent sunsets took our breath away!
We will never forget the restaurant meals. We love Thai food and the chef at Beyond Resrt has to be congratulated as this was the best ever. Pad Thai at the beach restaurant and green chicken curry at Siam.....it is worth returning just to experience these dishes again.
During our stay all guests were invited to celebrate the resorts 1st birthday with a cocktail party on the beach. It was a double celebration as it was also the Kings birthday and we were given the opportunity to participate in releasing 'Thai' balloons. What a beautiful and unforgetable experience. The sight of 365 glowing balloons sailing through the night sky!
We would especially like to thank the manager, Robert, who went out of his way to help my daughter organise delivery of a purchase from a store in Kao Lak back to the resort. We met Robert many times around the resort during our stay.His attention to detail and friendly interaction with staff and guests ensure this resort is efficiently and effectively managed.
Another highlight of our week was the cooking class. Special thanks to Nan, Prawit Tawilpol (head chef) and the other kitchen staff. Our cooking experience was exciting, fun and very memorable. I hope to create those beautiful Thai meals at home and impress family and friends with my new culinary skills!
Did I mention the relaxing massages and treatments at the spa or by the pool? WOW!
I cannot recommend this resort highly enough. Everything was perfect.

Room Tip: All rooms are perfect!

Dear Heather and family,

Thanks for your great review of our Resort. Being the winner of the " Luxury Hotel Award 2012" for best new Costal resort, we try every effort to match the award with the actual experience in the Hotel.
It was such a pleasure having you and the participants of the Beyond Success group with us, i trust the fun was equally shared between you and our side...
We sincerely hope that the word in Australia will be spread a bit, and we are looking forward to welcome many " Aussi's " in the near future. Again , too bad Qantas and Flight Center are not yet on-board here, but i guess its a question of time and demand.
Cooking fun at BRKL; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0-EUoSROpVs

We have just returned home from the most wonderful, relaxing & rejuvenating week at Beyond Resort Khaolak. A little over an hour from Phuket, it is nestled in a quiet, peaceful area away from the madding crowds. The resort has around 150 individual villas, all air conditioned, extremely spacious and beautifully appointed. The staff couldn't have been more help and the food was absolutely amazing, no matter where we ate. The pools and entertaining area all overlook the clean, serene beach - very very inviting. Everyone loved the services provided by the spa with many re-booking for further treatments after their initial experiences.
The resort celebrated its first birthday while we were there which also coincided with the King's birthday. All guests were invited to a special celebration of both where we enjoyed a cocktail function and had the delightful pleasure of being involved in a special Thai tradition of sending off about 365 small paper hot air balloons. It was quite an emotional experience and very touching watching them take off on mass into the night. Thank you for the chance to have this experience. Although we had seen a few set off down the beach over our evenings there, the mass experience was something very special.
It was our participation in a conference held here that originally took us to this place and I have to say the staff went well beyond all our expectations to ensure that every person felt welcome and that every need was met. Nothing was too much trouble and they went well out of their way to ensure that our experience was well above our expectations. In fact we all loved it so much, for the first time we are aware of, the company has re-booked their annual event to return here next year and most of the attendees have already re-booked too.
We live a very hectic life at home and the slow pace of life here was exactly what we needed to refresh ourselves. Although just disappearing into the resort was so inviting there was also many other options to take tours, etc if we wished. I also took a cooking class within the resort which I couldn't recommend more. Not only did we have a lot of fun learning with the resort's head chef and his team, but we also got to enjoy all we cooked in the setting of the Siam restaurant - more food than we could possibly eat and, under the watchful eye of our teachers, almost as good as what they would have cooked for us. Very highly recommend this experience.
Thank you to both you Robert and all of your team for making our stay so enjoyable. We have had a wonderful time and everything was so much more than we expected with the exception of the bill which was a delightful surprise when it came time to leave. Thank you for having us and we greatly looking forward to coming back to visit you all again next year.

Room Tip: They're all fantastic so don't worry. However, if you want something extra special, there ar...

Dear Carolyn,

Thanks for your great response. It was so much fun having your group with us, we can't wait to have you back in 2013. It's just too bad that the "BIG" boys in Australia, Flight Center and Qantas Holidays are not (yet) adding the resort in their portfolio, but i trust once the people in charge take a day or 2 break here, we will be on top of their best selling hotels in the region in no time.
Again thanks for your visit, management and staff are proud to read your comments.

very best regards from all of us

beyond resort really was a fantastic holiday,we upgraded to a palm villa,which was close to the pool and beach,also we were given daily fruit and newspapers, the room was very large and comfortable.
We also enjoyed the complimentary outdoor massages and being invited to the cocktail party,s,where we met the manager of the resort Robert,who we would like to say a very special thankyou to for making our wedding anniversary very memorable by having cake and champagne delivered to our room. The staff in the resort are all very pleasant and hardworking,especially Bump and Ardy at the pool bar who tried to teach us to speak Thai,also Nong by the poolside, who looked after our belongings when it rained,we would also like to mention Kwang on the reception for all her assistance.Keep up the standards and we will be back to stay in paradise

Room Tip: choose room 1309 near pool and beach,palm villa

Dear Chaucerclan,

Grateful for your response. Room 1309, by the way, is a Palm Villa "Premier", our first upgrade level from the Palm Villas and only bookable through the hotel this year. Happy to see that your Wedding Anniversary will be one to be remembered. I can assure you of the same standard of service also in our sister property, the Beyond Resort Krabi. Maybe a fifty-fifty stay the next time, minimum 5 nights in each hotel and we offer the 2 hour ride between the hotels for free too.
Anyway it was fun to have you here and hopefully back soon again in one of the properties of the Kata Group

All the best for the festive days ahead

From Moscow with Love! :-)
Many thanks for your reply and information on your stay and nice to get a response from Russia too, even though we have only very little Russian customers.
Regarding the Management cocktail, we invite all our guests to join this event at least once, let them meet the management, bring up issues and meet other guests. Palm Villa Premier and the Pool Villa guests, nevertheless, have a standing invitation to all cocktails.
Anyway, glad to see that you have enjoyed your stay, hope to have yopu back soon again

First impressions were fantastic, long driveway with large open spaces and imposing reception. Amazing resort, all outside areas were beautifully manicured! Rooms were superb, single storey detached villas, housekeeping service was impeccable. Breakfast was 5*, service and choices in restaurants and bars was first class (good steady supply of gin and tonic!). All the staff were genuinely friendly, helpful, very efficient and a pleasure to be with, they really added to the holiday enjoyment. The resort spa was fantastic value with a great range of treatments, which again was first class. The pools and loungers provided a perfect restful day in beautiful surroundings right on the beach, which was also immaculate. The local area, market and town provided a real Thai experience, the hotel provides efficient good value transport to and from. Overall Beyond resort has set a standard for us that will be difficult to better.

Room Tip: All rooms are great, but if you can, treat yourself to a beach side pool villa - they are incredible...

Dear Mark and Emily,

Thank you for your great response. Indeed the pool villas at the beach are somewhat spectacular and still in a very fair value for money relation compared to our "BIG" name brand competitors.
I am happy to see that your stay was enjoyful A-Z and we hope to be able to welcoming you back in the not too distant future.

Very nice Hotel, spacious and well designed villas (rooms), excellent food, marvellous beach.Staff is very friendly and efficient although communication is not always easy. You mostly notice only after a while wether they have understood or not. To understand their English can sometimes be some sort of challenge but goodwill on both sides leads you to the desired results. Once understood, requests are carried out promptly and efficiently. I liked the rather hard mattress, my wife did not. We particularly liked the local food section on the breakfast buffet, and the espresso. At the time of our stay nearly 100% of the guests were couples. Of all sexes. We appreciated the quietness of the place - no animation and no discotheque. We booked partly because of the prerequisite "minimum age 18" - so it said on the Internet - and hoped for silence. This was nearly 90% fulfilled. Exception was a rather noisy Italian child, the only one in the entire resort. And the strange singers in the bar in the evening - should get some musical training, perhaps. Really fantastic is the 8km sandy beach, clean and very nice for long walks. And with its cheap but good restaurants and massage spots. Altogether a great vacation. 2 Things I did not understand: you hardly can keep the room maid from exchanging the towels every day, in spite of the announcement in the room that towels will be changed only if left on the floor (no environmental concerns in Thailand?). And why are all prices in the hotel subject to add-ons of 10% ("Service") and 7% ("tax") whereas outside the hotel you do not find this strange habit? Moreover, the "Dertour"-folder in the lobby suggests that the "service"-Charge does not necesarily reach the employees...

Dear Ul99,

many thanks for your lovely comments. First of all, I am very sorry about the unexpected child in the hotel, this is our first year of operating child free and some previous committments will see a kid here or there. Another minus was the singer at our @Beach restaurant, really not great and she is no longer with us now. But i am very happy to see that your overall experince was positive and you spend a couple of great days at the resort.
We hope to be able to welcoming you again, be that here or our sister property the Beyond Resort Krabi, another fantastic beach retreat.
