We checked in to the Yama Resort for only one night, but wish we could have stayed longer. The hotel is a beautiful property off the beaten path in Khao Lak. It is set off the main road a little ways, about a 10 minutes walk back in the trees, which makes you feel like you have a bit of an escape. The rooms actually look like little cabins, which we thought was nice.
Fair warning, the people who run it do not speak a lot of English. It didn't really cause us any issues, check in went just fine, but if you require anything else it might be a little tricky. Upon check in, we were escorted to our room. The rooms are huge. Everything was clean and appeared to be fairly new or else very well maintained. The bathroom was a good size too and very modern. It also had a nice patio area with a cieling fan and seating, which was nice. We found with the size of the room, it did take a little while to cool off but it was a small detail. Although we didn't have the chance to enjoy it, the pool looked very nice. Breakfast was included with our rate and had many things to choose from, including a nice selection of hot food.
The hotel is a little ways from the main part of Khao Lak so just something to be aware of. It was a fairly inexpensive taxi ride into town. There are several shops and restaurants about a 10 minute walk from the property. It is up a dirt road, which can be a little dark at night but there is a guard on duty until pretty late. We walked up around midnight and he was still there so that made us feel a bit better. This has absolutely no bearing on the hotel itself, but just something to be aware of. I got food poisoning from eating at the resaurant that is directly across the street from the road you turn down to get to the hotel. The hotel is on a side road and there is a yellow sign indicating where to turn from the main street. It is an outdoor restaurant directly across the street so avoid that if possible. There are lots of other places to choose from.
Overall, if you are looking to be away from the touristy sections of town, this is the place.
