This is our second time back at Beyond Resort and our sixth time back in Phuket. The resort is really beautiful, even more beautiful the second time: it was like we slipped straight back into the relaxed state we left in in 2012. We arrived in the reception foyer after a day travelling to find the Resort Manager Robert and the Client Services Manager Danielle waiting for us because they had made it their business to know what time we were arriving. They even took the time to sit with us, give us fresh fruit and a drink to cool off while our check in was handled and our bags whisked away to our rooms.

Our villa was very well maintained, twice the size of any we had previously stayed at in Phuket, clean, light and modern with very comfortable beds and light, luxurious linen. The facilities at the resort are maintained to the same high standard, with a gym, luxurious spa, beautiful restaurant and great beach bar and cafe. The food was fabulous with plenty of variety in all the restaurant menus and great service by the staff.

One of the other things that I love about this resort is that is an adults only resort. Last time we took a group away for a conference we had more than 60 kids in and around the pool area. At Beyond Resort the pool area is so peaceful, no kids splashing and running around spoiling the relaxing atmosphere for our clients who are with us for time to unwind and reflect on their year and to get rested and ready for the next one.

The level of care is such that when we arrived at the Beach Cafe the first night the staff remembered us from last year, and we arrived at breakfast the next morning to find more staff who not only remembered us, they remembered what we drank for breakfast and who had their coffee before and after their food. I was stunned at this level of service.

The management team treated our clients as well as they treated us. Nothing was too much trouble and they got to know our clients personally as well.

With such awesome service, stunning surrounds the Beyond Resort Khaolak is well and truly 'beyond' any other we have stayed at - we look forward to our return next year.

Our second visit, even better than last year. The pool area is as good as it gets, and the ocean is just 30 meters away.

The food is very good, and has been varied among styles over the week. The rooms are also very nice, and the staff is just super friendly and helpful.

For a romantic and luxurious paradise fantasy getaway, this is the place!

I love the Beyond Resort in Khaolak!

Every year I take a group of clients away on a high end seminar. These are our VIP clients so it is really important that the holiday is spectacular. We have never been to the same resort twice until we discovered Beyond Resort. This is the second year in a row we have been and we are so glad we went again. We are even going to take two groups next year it is so good!

The resort is beautiful, the rooms are spacious and stunning, the food incredible and the service is of the highest level. They even remembered how I have my coffee 12 months after I was last there!
Robert and his team at Beyond take such great care of us that we can't wait to go back!! We are even designing a second trip for each year so that we can come back sooner!!! The amenities and service at the resort for normal guests are wonderful but they are also excellent for our conference. Nothing is too much trouble for the team and they are so gracious and helpful.

This is a business trip for us and the resort and their team make us look good to our clients. It doesn't get better than that. As a business decision we must go back because they make us look so good!! I recommend the Beyond Resort Khaolak to anyone who wants a first class holiday.

Such a beautiful resort and second time back, just as beautiful as I remembered it from our previous visit 12 months ago. The service was once again, second to none. Thank-you to all concerned for taking such good care of us from room service, to restaurant service, front desk, pool/beach restaurant and bar, spa and even the grounds staff. All were polite, friendly and courteous.
So much to enjoy but I have to say, being able to enjoy such stunning sunsets while sipping cocktails at the pool bar or beach bar is difficult to beat. Either way you're right on the beach where it all happens with uninterrupted views.
Thank-you all for your hospitality. Would not hesitate to return for a third visit.

What Can I say about this Resort? – It has been a WONDERFUL holidays.

You might see different opinions and I specially would like to comments about the language barrier. This is Thailand and you will be in a resort on the middle of a rainforest, which is exactly what we wanted. You get the peace and tranquillity of this. If you want proper English speakers you can go to Phuket or to any other high luxury class resort ( which will have really high rates for a western standard) but you will not feel the Thai “spell”, I could communicate with EVERY SINGLE PERSON on the resort, who were always happy to help and very VERY helpful. No issue with the food nor the staff. I could say that this has been a wonderful stay and all thank to the wonderful, smiley and peace people around there.

We are definitely coming back to Thailand to any of the kata resort around the south of Thailand.

Thanks, THANKS A LOT… 11 out of 10 

We have had a fantastic holiday and conference for the second year in a row. Food and service level was magnificent. Accommodation first class, roomy and comfortable. Smiling and welcoming staff abound. A brilliant way to rest from the rigours of the world and refresh. Thank you for an unforgettable experience. Can't wait to be back.

This is our second stay at this property, the first being 12 months ago. Once again we were joined by about 40 other Aussies attending a conference at this venue and again we were blown away by how well we were all looked after. Set right on the beach, turquoise waters to the horizon, this relaxing 18+ resort met every requirement of our group whether business or pleasure.
A little over an hour's drive from Phuket, it is away from the hustle and bustle and is a very relaxing environment, something we very much appreciated as an escape from our hectic daily lives. The spa is something to rave about offering an array of delightful experiences to help us unwind and certainly inspired more than one visit.
The villas are large, spacious and very comfortable with well running air-con which creates a relaxing escape from the heat of the day. We initially found our bed a little hard but a quick request to reception had a bed topper supplied. TIP: Some of the staff don't have a great command of languages other than Thai so ensure you go directly to reception where they will be quick to sort out any challenges you might have. Once they understood what we wanted they simply could not do enough to help us.
Our experiences were quite broad spectrum from business to a relaxing few days on our own and we were unable to fault the service in anyway. Some of our group had special dietary needs and others simply wanted to try something not really on the menu and the kitchen staff did their best to fulfil all our requests.
The beach bar was a great hangout whether with the group or on our own. We found great relaxation sitting on the beachfront with a drink and enjoying the entertainment with an especially wonderful band who played most nights we were there although we were also spoilt with a polynesian evening too. The King's birthday was celebrated also as well as Loy Krathong where we took part in a ceremony floating our krathongs in the pool and sending paper hot air balloons skyward in a beautiful arc toward the moon.
Overall, Beyond Resort Khaolak has once again surpassed all our expectations. A welcome treat away from home, we arrived tired and stressed and are going home refreshed and rejuvenated. If you're looking for a haven to reconnect to your soul this is the place to do it.
Thank you again Robert,to you and your team, for taking care of us all so well once again.

Room Tip: Every room here is large, spacious, comfortable and private with excellent air-con to combat steamy...
