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 hotel is absolutely beautiful and spotlessly clean. The staff are extremely helpful and always happy to assist wherever possible. The grounds are immaculately kept and the beach is fabulous. The only issue, which is the world over is that the drinks and food are much more expensive than you'll find elsewhere. There are lots of activities for you to choose from and the hotel acts as an agent on behalf of some of the tours that you can do. They don't charge you extra for booking through them, the commission must be taken directly with the tour organiser. I assume this as we booked a trip directly with the tour operator and found out after that our hotel were selling the same trip with the same company for the same price. There are two styles of room a Siam Chalet Room and detached Bungalows. We had a Siam chalet room to start, but upgraded to a bungalow the next day because we fancied a bit more space. It was a great move!! Overall great value hotel. I'd certainly consider going back. More
Beautiful place - great service!
We spent two weeks at this wonderful hotel. Our third time in Khao Lak but the first time at this hotel. We arrived early in the morning on New Years Eve, and we knew normal check-in time was at 2 o'clock so we were pleasantly surprized getting access to all of our 3 rooms before 10 o'clock. The service at this hotel is top notch. When our youngest daughter got food poisoning (NOT from the hotel, but from a restaurant up the street) we got help calling the doctor as well as receiving phone calls from the straff asking how we were doing and if there was anything we needed. The beach and the pool area is also wonderful, clean and spacious, with plenty of sun beds. The only problem is people reserving the (best) sunbeds by the beach before 7 without anyone staying. I'm totally ok with people holding a few sunbeds while waiting for the rest of the family, but just leaving towels early and not returning until after breakfast is not ok. Every hotel that has these problems should take a look at Ramada Khao Lak, as they have solved this by having a person in charge of sunbeds and pool towels. But there are so many other positive things with this hotel that this won't effect my rating of this place! The breakfast is awesome, plenty of choices for everyone and also wonderfully situated with great views. One of the girls at the omelette station was particularly friendly and service minded, asking how to say good morning in different languages and then remembering and greeting people in their language. She also managed to remember what each and everyone of us wanted on our omelettes (and they were all different). Impressive! The New Years Eve Gala was fantastic, with great entertainment and superb food with so many different dishes to chose from that we were unable to try everything, we were too full! :) The beach restaurant (Sundowners) had good food and some really great smoothies. We also tried out their room service, which was very good (and fast). The rooms were really nice and clean, alot bigger than we had expected and with comfortable beds and pillows. The location is perfect, just a couple of minutes walk to most stores and restaurants (there are a few right across the street). To sum it up - This is a really great place that we will happily return to again! More
worth a visit...
stayed here Dec/Jan 2017. lovely hotel.. staff are very friendly and nice. Reception staff very efficient and good english...but not so friendly. Traditional Thai feel here.. more so than other hotels in the area we stayed in. Food generally good in the main hotel restaurant which is based at the sea front and near the pool and beach. most drinks available in the bars.. but as always very expensive in the hotels.. cheaper outside. The breakfast is very disappointing from a quality and variety point.. worst we've had in Thailand. Pool is not great.. we've had better. the beach area is clean and nice compared to other parts of Thailand. Sea is quite rough and beware of jelly fish..! the villas are much nicer.. nearer the restaurant and beach. We upgraded to one of these as the rooms weren't great. the hotel is within walking distance of main town area.. but the taxis are cheap... so why sweat it out in that heat..! lots of lovely restaurants in the town area and some new ones this year.. food is generally good in all the restaurants.. they are making a big effort here. we particularly like Spinach further up the town. .. but we didn't rate the restaurants across the road from the hotel. Thailand weather is hit and miss this time of year. we had a lot of heavy rainfall and for some hours after the rain the humidity was a bit unbearable at times... and the mosquitos were rampant... beware if you're allergic to these things.. I got some nasty bites... bring lots of antihistamines.. and any other medications you need... the pharmacies here are more like health stores.. they don't have any of the medications you would see in Europe. the mosquito sprays we used didn't work and we tried a number of them..!! Overall we enjoyed our stay here... but probably wouldn't go back to this hotel... we heard from people we met there that the Sarojin hotel is superiour.. so will most likely check that one out next time we're back in these parts. We also stayed in the Marriott hotel for New Year celebrations... that was really good.. we wrote a separate review, My husband and son scuba dive and they believe that its better here in these parts than in other areas of Thailand.. so thats what keep bringing us back here.. Didn't bother with any of the tours... or elephant trekking... did those last time.. once is enough.!.. ..More
