Ranked among the best beachfront properties in Thailand, the 293 luxury digs at the JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort & Spa give traditional Thai designs a remix. Guestrooms have dark hardwood floors and authentic Thai artwork hanging above beds draped in crisp white linens; some have private balconies. With its sleek reimagining of Thai stilt-house design, the open-plan property centers on an expansive, lagoon-style swimming pool (the longest in Southeast Asia), and some rooms have direct access. Six restaurants, including the standout Ta-Krai and the sushi and teppanyaki joint Sakura, provide sufficient Asian flavors to keep picky palates happy, while the Quan Spa has a handful of outdoor Thai sala for blissful meditation between treatments.

How to Get There
We are just back from 8 nights and we had the most wonderful time. The resort is absolutely beautiful and the staff are so friendly and attentive. The food is fresh and delicious and service was impeccable, with a special mention to Tha and Enzo. Thank you, you made our experience so personal and memorable. Couldn’t fault the JW Marriott, was a prefect holiday.
The resort was beautiful with the largest pool I've seen the facilities and restaurants top class the staff are excellent so friendly and helpful,your room had pool accesses (Fantastic ) the room was a large decorated beautifully with a full size bathroom and bath . For a 5 star resort it's very well priced great for a romantic getaway or families the staff are amazing with kids We stayed for 11 memorable days we had an awesome holiday and I will be rebooking next year .
We stayed for 8 nights at the JW Marriott hotel Khao Lak and had a wonderful and quiet time there. Check in was overwhelmingly friendly and we were guided to our room. The room had a good size with a large balcony, flat screen tv and and a bathroom with separate shower and bathtub with a good water pressure. Even the furniture of our room was a bit dated, it was kept in good condition and we liked the wooden floor a lot. A special thanks to the housekeeping. Not only that our room was kept clean and tidy all times, we got a new towel animal on our bed every day. The resort itself is really huge. We never saw a pool area of this size. It was really amazing. Most of the time we didn't even see other guests when we were at the pool. Breakfast was from outstanding quality and many dishes were prepared to order. We never get bored, even after 9 days. The crew already knew after 1 day what coffee we like. Very well done. We had dinner at the Italian restaurant twice and the same here, lovely people who always took good care of us and a stunning quality when it comes to the food and drinks. Same in the Lobby bar where we had every day a drink or two. All in all we were 100 percent satisfied with our really relaxing time at the Marriott and we have to say a big thank you to all of the crew, they made our stay a real special one. We will definitely come back.
JW Marriott is a lovely resort, everything you could need at hand. ideal for families and couples. There was a great kids club, gym, lovely coffee shop, fab pool. Only comment, it was quite expensive if you weren't all inclusive (we weren't). Only a handful of smaller restaurants within walking distance, which were very nice, and one supermarket. The Thai restaurants were reasonable, the Italian was expensive. The taxi fare from the resort to Khao Lak village was extortionate, but there was a reasonably priced shuttle bus from the hotel, which ran quite regular. The village was lovely - two markets, plenty of restaurants and shops. The beach location was lovely, but we had quite a bit of rain so felt a bit isolated. Breakfast was fab - anything you could wish for. All in all, a lovely resort, we went at the beginning of May and it was extremely rainy, but that's out of everybody's control! However, other people at nearby resorts had not had as much rain as we had, so possibly just the wrong location at the wrong time of year.
My wife and I have just returned from 10 days at this fantastic resort. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff and the facilities are first class. There will be extensive renovations commencing on the 20th May and going through until Sept 2019 with wing 1 to be completed this year. We would like to thank Mee who not only met us on our arrival but also came down to the Waterfront restaurant to catch up with us and saw us in the reception area on the morning of our departure. We had requested a room in the same wing as on a previous visit and this was arranged by Mee with a minimum of fuss. The room 3026 was in excellent condition and looked recently painted. The maintenance throughout the resort is excellent and there have been many small changes that make this resort a pleasure to visit. The food is of a high quality in all dining outlets and offers a good range. We would like to thank Nuch, Nat and Pooh in the Waterfront restaurant for there excellent smiling friendly service. The staff at the Czar Bar also provided great cocktails every night. A fantastic visit and we can't wait to return.
