Thai Life Guesthouse Khao Lak
Ranked #15 of 52 Khao Lak B&B and Inns
Reviewed January 21, 2013

The rooms here are big and spotlessly clean and well looked after. They are cleaned every day.
The guesthouse is over a bar/restaurant but noise is not a problem. Accomodation wise there is all you could need though odd that not even a bar of soap is provided. The people who run Thai Life are also helpful.
There is no breakfast possible as the restaurant downstairs does not open until afternoons but a perfectly good Bistro across the road provides a good breakfast if you wish to buy one.
A rather strange feature is that in the mornings no-one appears to be around for check outs or anything else so you just leave the key in the door and go. Not a problem...but we have not encountered this before.
The only problem for us, and this is a personal thing, is that the guesthouse is, as the previous reviewer says, right in the middle of things in Bang Niang. This was not a plus for us as we prefer a quieter more scenic location but if that's what you want then this is great for you.
Overall a good place and decent value for money if you want a central location.

We had booked a superior room at the Thai Life for two nights before moving on within Khao Lak. The room was an apartment size with seating corner, kitchen and a second double bed in the attic. It was immaculate and great value for money. The Swiss owner is really friendly and helpful; and we liked the bar/restaurant downstairs. The guesthouse is very close to all amenities in Bang Niang, it is quite a walk down to the beach but the owner has a bar on Bang Niang Beach where you can use the sunbeds and have a lazy drink with your feet in the sand. The do not offer breakfast but there is enough choice close by. There is a market just behind the hotel which opens 3 times a week and is well worth a visit for a few clothes bargains, tasty street food and some quaint market bars (try Mr. Chay's Bar!).
We would definitely return to Thai Life and gladly stay a few nights longer.

I recently booked in to Thai Life on a recent arrival in Khao Lak and I wasn't disappointed. The room i was given was huge and immaculately presented. It was actually a shame that I wasn't staying around longer as I would have extended here for sure.
I met the owner when i checked in, a Swiss guy and he was very friendly. I also met some of the staff from the restaurant/bar downstairs, they were equally as welcoming.
The hotel was also very good value for the standard of the room i received.
