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
Really relaxing and beautiful hotel, all staff were amazing. The room was very spacious and comfortable. The only bad thing I’d say is breakfast has limited options and eggs and omelettes were undercooked everyday. I would also say if you wanted to experience a Thai massage, go to one of the massage shops on the street as the spa in the hotel is very over priced. Other than that, we loved our stay here.
The Hotel was lovely, food in hotel was toooooooo expensive, which is such a shame. The staff were lovely and very helpful, pool area lovely and the views fantastic. My only disappointment was when the waves hit the decking it left a lot of debris ( plastic bottles, plastic waste, wood, sticks and other rubbish) on the decking, the staff did come out to clean it but we was shocked and disgusted when we seen them just brushing it back into the sea, surely we should be removing and disposing of this waste/
Very problematic! The place itself is NOT friendly for those who can't climb up and down lots of stairs.
Service was fine and the hotel looked really nice until you realize that the stair walking is quite a lot. NOT recommended for those that cannot climb too many stairs and those with leg problems.
We were ok with the stairs but then when the lights went out the first night, I thought it was a Thailand problem. But when it happened a second time and now a third time in a row, it's not at all acceptable.
Service was friendly but not knowledgeable. There are many other hotels very near and possibly much better than this hotel. Book those.
