There’s much to love about the Moracea by Khao Lak, a hillside hideaway near Khao Lak–Lam Ru National Park, from the cosseting guestrooms, which are decked out with silks and intricate woodwork, to the sea-facing swimming pools and direct access to the quarter-mile-long beach. Hibiscus Rooms (the smallest is 592 square feet) have been designed by a Sino-Portuguese architect, and all feature a sunset-friendly balcony overlooking the ocean, the pool or the jungle. Dine on classic Thai dishes at the beachfront Malila restaurant, or watch the chefs at work at Kumpun, which serves fresh seafood from an open kitchen. The property champions the area’s natural assets, from the locally grown ingredients used in treatments at the spa to promoting trips with Khao Lak boatmen through mangrove forests.
In the Area
Khao Lak is very beach-centric, but there’s plenty of life beyond the dive centers and loungers. The best local street food can be found at Go Pong (on Th Phetkasem; no website), where the chefs whip up fresh noodles and satisfyingly spicy rice dishes nightly. Khao Lak–Lam Ru National Park is a glorious mix of sea cliffs and mangrove marshes, a place where wildlife spotters might see hornbills, gibbons and Asiatic black bears. Khao Lak was also, sadly, one of the worst-hit areas during the 2004 tsunami; a small museum has recently opened to tell the story.
How to Get There
Me and my girlfriend, she chose this hotel for our 2 nights stays just to relaxing in Khao Lak , And we got the room with the Sea view from the balcony, which was really good we love that so much, The staff was friendly swimming Pool and Beach very clean & beautiful, The breakfast excellent and we could walk to city about 5 minutes and we ate different Thai food especially we love Thai Somtam haha
Thank you to everyone and we definitely come again ????
Had a really relaxing week at this hotel. So friendly, and nothing was to much trouble for the staff, especially Kwang who looked after our room. Her beautiful smile was a joy to see each day. The hotel restaurant served really good food, but we also had good meals at the beach bar, Andalay. Our accommodation was a beach bungalow, very peaceful, although as it was monsoon season the sea could be a bit noisy, at night.
We stayed in Hibicus Grand Deluxe room which was just beautiful and serviced daily. Fabulous view out to ocean.
The food was gorgeous at the resort and the pools very well maintained with beautiful gardens.
Short walk into town. The staff were all so friendly and lovely.
Absolutely loved our stay here and thoroughly recommend.
