“Good value, quite comfortable, amazing view”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

Great place to unwind after two nights on Similan #4. Clean, comfortable, affordable, awesome view of the sea from our balcony. Not for people with any mobility issues... lots of steps from the road-level lobby down to the bungalows, and further down to the beach.

Did not try restaurant. Looked only modestly busy for breakfast. 100B for a songthaew ride into town, with lots of good eating options.

I stayed in the baan krating for 3 days with the wife and kids on a multi centre holiday and overall rated this hotel very highly. Each bungalow has modern facilities as well as nice furnishings and great service. Each bungalow also has a balcony that overlooks the calm beach. I booked a 15 night holiday with dreambookers.com travelling around Vietnam and Thailand visiting all the attractions and can honestly say that Khao Lak and the Baan Krating resort was one of the highlights of my holiday.

Four nights in a Deluxe Pavilion room (around AU$48 per night incl breakfast, taxes and service charge).

A very nice spacious room situated in jungle surroundings, with all conveniences and a fantastic view (probably the best of any hotel in Khao Lak) from the private secluded balcony overlooking the northern coastline. The room was clean, well maintained, and serviced by very friendly staff.

A little remote from the nearest shops and restaurants in Bang La On (around 5 mins by car), and probably too far for most people to walk on a regular basis … so, your own car (or the use of taxis) is recommended.

They advised they didn’t have off-street parking but that our car could be parked on-street under close observation by their 24 hr security guard … but on arrival, went out of their way to make space for us in their small off-street area.

Breakfast was a help-yourself buffet (as much as you could want) … with a fairly small western choice plus a couple of asian dishes … tasty, but it could get a little boring after 4 or 5 days. The coffee was good and was replenished as often as you wanted.

They do have an on-site restaurant, but other than breakfast, we didn’t see it being used (although there were very few rooms occupied). Also attached just down the hill, is the Muanlai Restaurant (see separate review)… whilst very basic in decore, the food was good and reasonably priced, the service was ok, with panoramic coastal views.

The only negative from our point of view … 88 steps from check-in to our rooms (and some rooms were more remote). Not a problem for those who enjoy a good work-out, but definitely a chore for us. We didn’t venture down to the rocks or waterfront as it was just too difficult.

Facilities: A small pool with sun loungers (although, not a lot of sun), reading room and library, public computer and free wi-fi internet.

Conclusion: A fairly good level of fitness is required to make the most of this hotel. If you are content to sit on your balcony, read a book, or chill-out and soak up the view you will probably love it.

We spend only one night there and we stayed in a deluxe room with the view on the sea.

Nothing was to complain except the hotel doesn't have a real beach. The beach in at the hotel front is very rocky and dangerous the swim in !

They don't have restaurant either so you need to go into town which is a couple of km away. If you are lucky the hotel staff can rent you their own motobike for 200 bath or you may need to call a taxi.

We were also quite disappointed by the breakfast which was just so so.

Appart all this we were happy to stay in this hotel.

About an hours drive north of Phuket (£40 ish) in a taxi from the airport, but shop around, cos it is possible to get cheaper than from the first person that approaches you.
Definately worth if it you have the funds; saves so much mucking around for a reasonable price.
Stunning location, just above a beach, altho not quite as directly on the waterfront as we were hoping for; it takes a couple of minutes to walk down the guided path thru the trees. (Altho there was another path closer that was cordoned off, no idea why.)
Walking along the beach is also the quickest way into the local town, which is beautifully not too developed yet, but has everything every calibre of tourist would need in such a place.
From the beach you can cut up thru the other hotels to get into this little town....its much quicker than doing it by road if you don`t have transport.
The service was very good, and courteous, as you would expect.
But altho I am very keen on picking up local language and making an effort, I found the lack of sometimes even basic knowledge of English, a bit frustrating.
Breakfast was fairly plentiful, and the restaurant where breakfast was served was of far superior quality in the evenings than the other restaurant along the path to the beach.
Our room was immaculate, spotless, unusual, spacious and comfortable, and we loved it so much. The balcony was huge, and brilliant for spotting local wildlife, and star-gazing.

Only had 3 nights, but we managed to squeeze in the trips to the Similan Islands and the elephant trek/jungle river tours...would highly recommend; ask at reception, but take cash.

Room Tip: Deluxe Pavilion Room/Hut 6 overlooking the beach (thru trees). Not overlooked by anyone.

After our liveaboard, we stayed here for a night. It was a great place to unwind after the dives. The balcony was very big, and the ocean view from our bed was very nice. We could even leave the front glass doors open at night. We slept so soundly with the waves below. No mosquitoes because there was a screen that kept out the bugs, but let in the waves sound and breeze.
The hotel was near some really good Thai massages along the beach. Highly recommend the massages. If you want to go shopping, take a short 2 minute taxi ride to Khao Lak center and shop with care... there were a LOT of things to buy!
Nice deluxe villas!
The only bad stuff I can think of was the awful smell that came out from the bathroom. However, once you put the towel over the drainage cover, everything was back to bliss.

Room Tip: Deluxe villas are much quieter than the ones nearer to the road. You hear just the waves.

We stayed here for two nights before boarding our liveaboard in Khao Lak. Beautiful location with sea views if you choose this type of accomodation. Cleanliness of room was great, bathroom clean, robes, flip flops, slippers, beach towels etc. Access to the beach is easy you can quite ways down the white sandy beaches.
Only note, it is not within Khao Lak which is 100 BHT taxi ride, but the views and access to the beach make it worth it! Also no in-room dining so if you want room service forget it.

Room Tip: If traveling in April make sure you get AC!
