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
Stayed here for one week end of November. Great Location Directly at the Beach - wonderful high class rooms. The Gardeners do a fantastic job - this jungle is just Impressive and beautiful - thank you for so much Love and care.
The Duty Manager was just great - warm and welcoming - making sure I feel at ease.
Food is really great - great breakfast buffet with a large variety of choice. Lunch and Dinner is superbly prepared by the chefs - thank you for all the good food - enjoyed it very much.
You can walk to Khao Lak Centre or simply take a Taxi right outside the hotel (approx. 5 min). You find markets, restaurants, bars, massage and beauty slaons, etc. - it is wonderful to Strawl and let yourself be indulged by the friendly atmosphere.
Make sure to visit the Bianf Nang Market - worth it! The Tsunami Museum is also just across the street - and was a moving experience for me.
Dear Moracea team - thank you for the Great service - loved my stay!
We went there with the elderies, so we can arrange the Hotel truck, or golf car for going up and down the slopes for meals.
The Beach is perfect for swimming and strolling. Do not miss watching the sunset!
We booked the hibiscus rooms with pool access, which is very convenient for us.
The buffet breakfast is nice and sufficient.
The dinner restaurant is also good, with lot of choices.
We have just returned from a near perfect holiday the place is set in a stunning area beautiful beach wildlife amazing. From the moment we entered into the hotel we were greeted with smiles from the staff helpful beyond words throughout the holiday. We were all inclusive the food and drink was the best we have ever experienced beautifully presented at every meal.We had a zeavola bungalow that was amazing 20 metres from the nearest pool 40 metres from the beach.The staff from the cleaners gardeners and mainly the waiting staff (it would be unfair to single just one person out )excellent service at all times .has some of the reviews have already mentioned the hills on the resort are steep BUT one simple phone call. or ask any member of the staff and they will be more than happy to call the on site buggy to take up or down the hill .Would we return most definitely asap Thank you Moracea for a fantastic holiday 😀😀😀
This hotel was amazing. Lovely room, amazing beach side hotel with many pools and restaurants to choose from. staff were very helpful - offering a buggy service to our rooms on arrival and ensuring we had umbrellas in the monsoon rains! Breakfast was also lovely. Nice location too - close by to restaurants, shops and the main strip in Khao Lak. Also was able to hire a motorbike from the hotel which was good. There is also a little shop on site which is handy.
Amazing! Wow! Our best holiday yet! - A few words to describe our 2 week holiday to the Moracea.
From the moment we arrived - to when we left, we were relaxed, amazed and pit at complete ease, the staff were so respectful, even remembered our room number a lot of the time.
We went with an all inclusive package, so you do have a slightly different drinks and food menu for dinner, this didn’t change for the 2 weeks we were there - but the food was such high quality, delicious and well presented, it didn’t matter too much, plus
the location is ideal to be able to walk into the town and visit the shops, restaurants and bars. There are always taxis waiting outside too.
The Moracea does a good job of making the environment feel chilled, calm and relaxing and having the sense of a small village rather than a resort or hotel.
Our room was amazing, with great views to the beach.
All in all - we are sad to be home after what was a truly memorable holiday.
