Live the Thai life at a magical resort on Khao Lak Beach, overlooking the Andaman Sea, in southern Thailand. Greeting you like a Thai temple, Khaolak Laguna is designed in a classic style, with slanting roofs, white pillars, colorful floor tiles and oversized pottery in the semi-open lobby area. It backs onto the beautiful beach, so you can stroll through lush tropical gardens directly to the sands beyond – this is one of the most enviable locations in the region.
The experience here is supremely peaceful and relaxing. Numerous thatched and tiled shelters blend in seamlessly with the palms. Chalets, tucked away in the grounds, pay homage to local artistry and handicrafts. The Asian restaurant serves beautifully presented buffet breakfasts, and the Sundowner Terrace is the place to sip pre-dinner cocktails as the jewel-like sunset lights up the sea. The free-form swimming pool has a thatched swim-up bar, and a poolside massage or a visit to the Chiva Spa are just the thing to ease you further into chill-out mode. And, because this is a seaside paradise in every sense of the word, there are even offshore islands you can explore on a boat trip.
Traditional by design, each luxurious chalet features beautiful carved woodwork. Measuring in at nearly 600 square feet, spacious Siam chalets are scattered among the grounds and have verdant garden views from a private terrace.

How to Get There
We stay this hotel for 6 days. There is no variety of food for breakfast, we had almost same food everday. There is a lot of steps, if you have bad knee don't book this hotel. The hotel is on the beach with nice swimming pool and it is quite a nice hotel but we did not like it. At night there is outside dog coming inside the hotel premises, just be careful. Dog nearly bite us, we complain twice but management said they have informed the government to remove the dog but we don't know if the dog are still their. The upstairs room have only one curtain and we can see inside other room when it is open. There is no privacy in the upstairs room. We have mentioned this to the hotel and we just hope they will do something for this. The setting of the hotel is 4 star but improvement is required for food, safety of tourists, more privacy in room and staff should know more english.
Exceptionally spot for relaxing while in holiday receptions people are extremely helpful location was superb close to McDonald’s ready made stuff local product selling shop massage.
Is look like ever green place more exotic and natural please make sure aircon not noise otherwise everything was great.
This resort is a fabulous place to stay if you are looking for beautiful accommodation amidst stunning gardens at the beach. The wildlife you can see from your terrace range from large monitor lizards to little brown squirrels, minah birds and kingfishers.
The villa was spacious with a four poster bed and an enormous bathroom. It was kept spotlessly clean and the minibar stocked daily. The garden terrace was a fantastic place to sit and watch the wildlife or read a book while enjoying a beer.
Facilities were good with a lovely large pool overlooking the sea with an adjoining bar and restaurant. There was another large indoor bar with lovely oriental décor. Breakfast was great with a choice of thai or European food. The omelettes were delicious as was the selection of fresh fruit .
We were able to borrow bikes free of charge to explore the local area.
Location wise, I thought the resort was really well placed as we were just a minute away from the main street with all the bars and restaurants but it was completely peaceful.
It is easy to book trips picking you up and dropping you back off at the hotel and all staff are helpful and welcoming. I really cannot praise this place enough and would consider myself very lucky if I get the chance to return.
And couldn't get them to agree for a full cancellation.
The room is smaller than promised, the view is of your neighbours sitting on their balconies, very outdated, dirty beddings, dirty floor. Please see pictures before you book your holiday there
One of our last stays after a nice round-trip to relax. The hotel is a good high standard, I see that prices are around 50€ which is a good deal. In July however it is rain season so the weather fluctuate between sunshine and rain. In July the other coast is a better option and the sea is also wild. The food is a bit western priced but good quality. A nice place to stay during the day at the swimming pool near the beach.
