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.

Fab holiday - stayed two weeks over Christmas and New Year
The staff at this hotel are wonderful. Everyone we met during our stay were a credit to the hotel. Very convenient for walking to shops and restaurants. When we arrived we were a little disappointed with our room. Three of us. Twelve year old son. The size of the room was plenty big enough but a little tired. Also not enough cupboard space for all our clothes for two weeks. Room seven two one. We looked at upgrading to a sea view villa. These are lovely for two people but too small for three, so we stayed where we were. Housekeeping very clean and tidy. The Xmas eve gala dinner and New Year's Eve celebrations were included with our booking through Kenwood travel. We just had to pay for drinks. The organisation and effort was very good. The ice sculptures for both those nights were lovely. Food I thought was very good, unlike a review I have just seen. Lovely little touches such as leaving gifts of a cd in your room Christmas Eve with favourite songs of their late great king. Also at new year, a book about the great king and family. Lots of Europeans at the hotel. My son would have preferred having friends from the uk to play with. He did meet one lad for a few days and they had fun but luck of the draw on that front. Gardens are kept well. Daily sightings of various sized lizards from one foot, two, three and four ft. Loads of carp in the ponds. Occasional fly by from a pair of eagles nesting in the hills. We all had an hour Thai massage and loved it. My son and husband tried the gym out. Equipment good. The staff at the gym and spa are like the rest of the staff at this hotel. Friendly and professional. My husband thought they could do activities by the pool but nothing like that here. Thoroughly enjoyed the hospitality. Note to management. Can't find the photos taken of guests on the Christmas and New Years nights, Please can you point me in the right direction. Would I recommend this hotel. Yes. We enjoyed our stay at this hotel and would recommend. About fifty eight steps to breakfast from reception, so if anyone with walking difficulties, then look elsewhere. Thank you for a wonderful stay.More
price does not reflect value, but enjoyable stay
this is a large, very well kept family resort and can consequently be quite noisy. we booked one of their villas which was very nicely equipped with enough storage space, excellent shower with great water pressure to boot, enough plugs to charge ipads and phones, comfortable beds and also very light with many windows, which you don't always get with thai interiors as teak furniture can be a bit gloomy, the best feature here are staff. they are friendly, approachable and very helpful. all our queries and problems were dealt with a smile and followed through nearly immediately. the downside for us came the breakfast which in typical thai style reflecting european food around 30 years ago, yoghurts marked plain have at least 15% sugar in them, the bread tastes of cardboard, the jam and the fluroscent liquid masquerading as orange juice have not seen any fruit in a very long time if ever. we had the compulsory new year buffet last night. it is eye-wateringly expensive. you can get a michelin starred meal in london for that price. this however was one of the better buffets we have had. the meat was freshly cooked and kept hot. highlights for us were the duck curry and the chicken with spinach. there was however no excuse for the deserts.the majority of which were unedable. the crowning glory came with a pink striped jelly like cubed affair, which literally tasted of nothing whatsover, not sweet not savoury, absolutely nothing. apart from that we never ate here as has been previously been mentioned the drinks are seriously overpriced, nearly triple in the case if cocktails. the spa in the resort is not cheap but the staff are very well trained and can't be faulted. i can thoroughly recommend that. also the gym is decently equipped with 2 of the latest running machines, lots if weights, some cross- trainers. the grounds are gorgeous and well kept. wifi can be patchy and is not existent in the breakfast area. we did enjoy our stay but don"t understand why the food is not up to standard and the for the prices charged the catering needs to be up to par.More
If you can, stay here
Spent one week at this hotel in December this year, a great week. This hotel is a true resort, with a fantastic breakfast, service at top level in all different hotel amenities and a great pool area. The only weak point is that the beach stretch is poor in front of the hotel (specially when high tide or windy days), there is no possibility to stretch out on the beach, but the sun chairs are located just at the beach front so we did not really mind. They had a lunch option for good price every day, good if you do not want to go away from the resort at lunch. We stayed in a bungalow, a luxury stay that we loved. We will definitely come back to this fantastic hotel!More
Unforgettable stay at this magnificent hotel
Staying at this hotel was a real delight. The staff speaks well English and after 2 weeks struggling all over Thailand with locals, it was good to finally get understood. We got upgraded with a sea view room it was really amazing. The food oh lord how great !! breakfast is heaven (real nutella and jif peanut butter :o), waffles, omelettes, banana bread... At night you have the choice to have whether buffet or a la carte and the meals a la carte are to die. Special mention for the waiter 'Zine' that provided a better service than in some fancy parisian luxurious hotels!!! The pool is so nice you are straight onto the beach. You have special covers (changed everyday) for the pool mattress with is so much more hygienic than in other hotel that just basically have the same one for years... The beds are so comfyyyyy This hotel is a MUST GO in KhaolakMore
