Casa de La Flora
What We Love
- The Jetsetter rate includes a welcome drink, free drinks from the minibar and daily breakfast, sandwiches and a fruit plate
- Watching the sunset over the Andaman Sea from your villa's private plunge pool
- Khao Lak has the natural beauty of Phuket, without the crowds
What To Know
- Beach is on the skinny side, but still wide enough for loungers
- If you're looking for the traditional teak beach bungalow, you won't dig the modern design here
- Room service menu is a little disappointing
- Free WiFi
- Parking On Site
- Room Service
A vision in stone, concrete and glass, this minimalist design hotel stands out for its stark, angular and — unique in southern Thailand — postmodern Brutalist look. Aesthetics are paramount here, and every facet of the design serves not only to look sexy but to maximize the stunning ocean views. Glass-fronted cubic villas come with private plunge pools and polished wood verandas overlooking the Andaman Sea, creating a wonderful water symmetry.
Bed and Bath
The sharp angles and contemporary design continue in the 36 cube-shaped beachfront villas, which have floor-to-ceiling glass walls that offer stunning sea views. Despite the sharp lines, bedrooms are surprisingly comfortable, with plush mattresses dressed in clean white linens and piled high with plenty of pillows. Bathrooms have deep stone soaking tubs, ceramic sinks and dispensers full of botanical products.
The strip of golden sand is narrow here, but it is also mostly deserted — a welcome contrast to crowd-packed Phuket, a 90-minute drive to the south. The quality of the water is the same, however: clear, warm and calm, and Casa de La Flora has done an excellent job of blending into the natural environs – wood loungers are built right into the tasteful stone wall separating units from the sea. The house restaurant, La Aranya, serves a mixture of Thai and Western dishes in a chic lounge setting. The on-site spa offers a tantalizing lineup of traditional treatments and Thai massages.
How to Get There
Not long arrived. Took a gamble at the end of rainy season and it didnt pay off. Constant heavy rain and nothing to do at resort. Food and drinks overpriced for captive audience. Spoke to other couples who are ‘ digging tunnels to escape’. In all seriousness if the weathers bad then this hotel is very isolated. Just bear in mind before booking
We stayed s resort for 7 days. It exceeded our expectations. Front desk staff were extremely helpful with advice on what to do and support to arrange outings. There was no pressure to arrange tours through the hotel and they provided helpful tips on places to eat and shop.
The restaurant staff were great, putting tables together as they saw us approach every day for our family of four. and their service was attentive and friendly. The food was good quality with a wide range of options.
From the bar staff at the pool to the cleaning and maintinence staff, and the staff at the day spa, everyone was professional and friendly.
We wanted for nothing with the facilities. When the tide was too high to enjoy the beach, the hotel provided a free private shuttle to their nearby sister hotel where we enjoyed access to the amenities and private beach.
We stayed in the duplex with private pool and could not get enough of the light and views from bed.
They also kindy allowed us to have a late check out before transferring us to our evening flight which enabled us to enjoy our holiday right to the end.
We could not recommend this resort more and feel rested and relaxed form our decadent break.
We celebrated my fathers 50th birthday at Casa De La FLora with 10 of our close friends. The staff did an amazing job with arranging a private seafood BBQ buffet dinner and drinks on their rooftop restaurant which well and truly exceeded all of our expectations.
If you are staying in Khao Lak and are celebrating a special event I would highly recommend celebrating it here.
The staff, food, drinks and atmosphere on the night was amazing!!
A huge thank you to all the staff for their efforts, it made my dads 50th birthday one to remember.
It's a wonderful hotel in Khao Lak. The rooms are super nice and the staff is extremely friendly. They would go the extra mile to help you get whatever you need. We participated in a tour and demanded Durian. Since the policy doesn't allow the driver/guide to bring durian into the car (due to the smell), he would drop off everyone else and bring me to the market to buy Durian.
My wife and I had a wonderful experience at the hotel. The only drawback is that the hotel is a bit far from the main road and attractions. So, depends on the goal of your trip, you may find this to be a problem or not
I went to Casa de la Flora on my Honeymoon and it was incredible! highly recommended! The staff is very friendly and always there to help. They think of every last detail and the coffee is very good as well!! Can't wait to go back!
