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.

Great Resort & Great Location
The grounds were immaculate and buildings and villas complimented the landscape. The pool was clean and there were ample daybeds for all guests. We were upgraded from a twin hotel room to a beach villa which was a lovely surprise. Our villa was spacious and had a great view of the ocean; all are close to the pool. The bathroom was a more traditional style and dark but due to dark tiles not lack of light. There were flyscreens on the doors which let the sea breeze in and allowed us to avoid continually using the air conditioner. The bed was at the end of its lifetime, soft, underwhelming and in need of replacement. The breakfast buffet was delicious: cereal, soup, pastries, fruit, eggs, cheese, deli meats, a few hot dishes and a kopi stand where fresh teas and local coffee are made to order. The staff were beautiful and seemed happy working at the resort. Location was also great, on the edge of town but less than 5 minutes walk from all recommended restaurants. Majority of guests were German and French.More
More puff than substance.
Beachside resort with imposing facade. Check in still asking for vouchers even when they have the online booking confirmation. More training needed here. Breakfast about average,plenty of choice and reasonable food. Service a bit patchy. Room is good ,comfortable bed. Seafront restaurant staff not on the ball. Poor service so I gave it a miss after one poor performance. Plenty of choice just across the road. All in all , overrated and overpriced and unless they smarten up their performance and offer a bit more service I see nothing special about Laguna.More
As a multiple visitor to Thailand, this was my first experience of the all inclusive package. Usually B&B. What can I add to the excellent reviews, previously posted. A hotel, with a good overall standard.The service, food and facilities are of a very high standard. Possibly the best staff, I have ever encountered. Unable to single out anyone for an exceptional service as they are all equally superb. If you are looking for a truly relaxing break, then look no further. Khao Lak Laguna is first class.More
First time to Thailand
Khoa Lak Laguna Resort 23 March - 7 April 2017 In our opinion, of the hotels we saw, this hotel is the best appointed in Khoa Lak , with exceptionally well maintained gardens and beach frontage. Sun loungers are good quality with cushions, parasols and fresh cushion covers daily. Two sets of beach towels are provided in your room, which you leave in the bath when you require clean towels. Also provided is a beach bag and two umbrellas for use during your stay. Wifi is patchy outside of reception but did work in our room, although at far end of the hotel beach, Sundowners and Oriental restaurants was constantly dropping out. All the staff without exception are very welcoming and attended to our needs. We would particularly like to thank Joy, Nownow, Hey and specially Euro and Sar. We would also like to thank Aew who cleaned our room during our stay. The Siam rooms are big, clean and well appointed, linen is changed on request and the room safe is big enough for SLR camera, iPads etc but not for a larger laptop. The bathroom is well equipped with large separate shower, bath with 2nd shower over and complementary shower gel, moisturiser, toothbrushes etc. The room mini bar is restocked daily with soft drinks, water and beer. The hotel has no lifts and hundreds of steps not a problem to us but could be a major issue for some. The beach is hard packed sand with some small stones and shells, however, beach shoes are not required and it's good for walking. The beach is very clean, gently shelved and no apparent strong current........ It's very much like a British beach. Leave your face mask and snorkel at home as there is nothing to see. Note; the waves are sometimes big but good fun. Around the hotel there is some wonderful wildlife, water monitor lizards, tilapia, frogs, skinks, birds and tree shrew's which look just like small brown squirrels. We were all inclusive. The food was either al a carte from a standard menu or daily varied buffet with Thai curries, prawns of all varieties, spring rolls, fish, grilled meats, noodles and the usual burgers, pizzas etc. Drinks included cocktails, some international and local spirits, beer etc. The overall feel of the hotel infrastructure rooms, beach front, spa, pool and gardens is upmarket and well presented with plenty of sun-loungers and a good beachfront drinks service. Hotel entertainment is 'low key' but odd ranging from Elvis tribute act when having a meal to piped US heavy metal and a tradition Thai band, all very uncoordinated in the Oriental restaurant? In the bar at night there is a piano player and a singer. None of it particularly to our taste but we were not looking for entertainment. Weather in late March / early April is hot 30+, however, most days it monsooned 'on and off' from circa 12:00 for 2 or 3 hours which at first is amusing but after 14 days becomes restrictive.... I guess this is what to expect in this part of the world. Unfortunately, the beach restaurant (Sundowners) was only open 3 times at night in 14 as no adequate provision for rainy conditions and needs to have more covered areas to be practical. My suggestion would be to move the bar to the adjacent massage area (why you need two round one pool is unclear to us) and turn the current bar to seating area. At lunch time, same issue, insufficient undercover space when it rained which was unfortunate and ruined to overall outdoor beach front experience. In the evening when Sundowners was washed out everything moved to the Oriental restaurant which was nice but not quite the same. Outside the hotel there are a number of restaurants which being all inclusive we did not try. There are shops which sell usual tourist stuff including clothing. There are a number of supermarkets which appear to be well stocked. Also there are shops who exchange currency. Would we come back to Thailand and this hotel...... yes but probably November to February which is apparently the dry season.More
