Sun, sea and sand – the Khao Lak Laguna Resort is all about this winning combo, thanks to its beachfront plot.
The Khao Lak Laguna Resort is made for beach bums. It’s pretty much on the sand, so a dip in the ocean is just as easy as lounging by the pool.
This place goes all out with the traditional look – think intricate carvings, statues and pointed, tiled roofs. The rooms tag along with the theme, and are kitted out with Oriental wall art and dark-wood furniture.

The drive took an hour. at night time there was no traffic. the resort is located next to the beach. there are different rooms/villas with nice views. we stayed in the Siam room. comfortable spacious room. clean it was thoughtful to offer the menu at midnight after our arrival. roomservice is nice, good food.

Touch of Thai
Beautiful resort right on the beachfront. Big rooms and the best wifi I have found anywhere. Great food, gym, yoga, massage and tour desk etc. The only thing to keep in mind is that this resort has lots and lots of stairs/steps and also no disabled access into the pool (only pool ladders). We had a big group including some elderly people and they found that a little bit of a challenge. Very suitable for children and families. Wonderful staff. More
We have just spent 2 weeks at this wonderful hotel, travelling on an All Inclusive basis with Thomson. Having researched lots of hotels in Khao Lak, we couldn't have been more happier with our choice. It is in a perfect location, just 5 minutes walk into Khao Lak centre to all the shops etc, and in our opinion this hotel has the best part of the beach along this stretch. Yes, there are no sunbeds allowed on the actual beach, but we always managed to get one on the lovely decking by the pool, overlooking the sea. This is the nicest looking hotel along the beach, with a traditional Thai style. In fact, on two occasions people walking on the beach stopped and asked us the name of it!!!! We stayed in a Siam Chalet, which was huge, the only downside being the limited storage space and it was a little dark, but that's just a minor point. The grounds are immaculate and the staff can't do enough for you. We had lots of banter with the wonderful staff at this hotel, too many to mention and can't remember all their names!! Breakfast was served in the Oriental Restaurant, but lunch and dinner was down on the beach in the Sundowner Restaurant, with it's idyllic location, especially in the evening. Lunch is not a buffet but served from an extensive menu, with both Thai and western food, with great presentation. For evening meal, if the buffet was not to your liking, you could also choose from the al-la-carte menu (if you are AI please be aware that this IS included, which wasn't made clear to us within the first few days). We did two great trips over the two weeks with Khao Lak Vista Tours, half day elephant trekking and James Bond Island, (separate review), which were excellent and a highlight of the holiday. We also got a private taxi one evening into Phuket (around Â£100 for the 4 of us). Yes it was a long drive, around 2 hours, but we had visited Phuket some 9 years ago and couldn't believe how much it had changed since then, and not for the better in our opinion!!! Although there were not many other English guests at the hotel, the ones we did meet were such lovely people and great fun to be with. If you are thinking of holidaying in Khao Lak, if you book this hotel you will not be disappointed. Would definitely return in a heartbeat!!!!More

From the moment we arrived for our third visit to the lovely Laguna we were treated like royalty from the efficient check in to the tearful goodbyes. A good time was had at the Valentines buffet party at Sundowners.We were lucky to win second prize in the free draw, a coconut massage for two in the spa,highly recomended. All the staff from gardeners to pool boys to housekeeping etc are very cheerful and helpful, but special mention must go to the entire breakfast crew. Lots to do in the hotel but a bhart bus taxi to the market was a lot of fun and we enjoyed some excellent street food. The tour desk girls will organise trips, so rafting elephant treking and turtle conservation was on our list this time. A wonderful holiday hope we will be back soonMore

Review of hotel
KHao Lak Laguna is a perfectly situated hotel. Lovely grounds, pool and beautiful beach. Highlight for us was little extras like covers for the sunbeds and good quality parasols. No sunbeds and parasols allowed on Khao Lak beach. So always book hotels with beach front access. This is definitely the nicest hotel along this area. Even got lizards walking around the beautiful gardens. They are a pleasure to watch. Rooms are massive in Thai style. Only downside is there is very limited storage space for clothes. Breakfast and staff are lovely especially the omelette girl. We hope to be back next year. Would definitely recommend this hotel. P..s. There are lots of eateries out on the main highstreet. You can eat with confidence in all of them.More
