An upscale beach vibe pervades this villa resort in Khao Lak, a paradisiacal stretch of Andaman coastline about 65 miles north of Phuket. Guests sprawl out in spacious villas equipped with private gardens, plunge pools and butler services. When you tire of all that luxury, snag a lounge chair at the outdoor pool overlooking the Andaman Sea or head to the rooftop bar for a cocktail and panoramic views of Khao Lak. On-site restaurants satisfy practically any craving: You can feast on Indian food at Kuk Kak, tuck into Italian classics at Mosaic, sample the four distinct types of Thai cuisine at Baan Thai, or get your fill of fresh seafood at Bamboo, a beachfront grill shaded by palm trees.
In the Area
No one would blame you for spending every single day in Khao Lak at the beach. The quieter, family-friendly answer to raucous Phuket has more than 15 miles of the stunning jungle-meets-water coastline that made Thai beaches famous in the first place. Spend your days checking out the various white sands, borrow a bike from the hotel to tool around town, or book a round at the nearby Tublamu golf course. Whatever you do, make time to watch the sunset: All of the beaches face west.
How to Get There
We are currently staying here as a family expecting a relaxing and classy escape however instead are listening to linken park while eating breakfast and have to pay additional for a good coffee (it’s just a self serve machine)
There is no table service for drinks in the morning or lunch. Many hotels offer this as a standard service and is a lovely touch to make the holiday more relaxing.
We don’t mind multicultural however didn’t expect this resort to be fully German orientated. One of the entertainment staff I believe is the head of entertainment is actually quite rude. I approached a food and beverage display with my children and he rudely said ‘what do you want’ not friendly at all.
The local staff are really friendly and even though there is a large language barrier they do try.
The food is ok but we didn’t expect to only have the buffet unless we pay extra for the other restaurants which wasn’t clear at the time of booking.
On arrival we had to wait almost 2 hours until we saw our room. We just wanted showers and some sleep as the long travel time.
The resort it self is nice but not a 5 star as advertised. The service is 3 star.
For the price and the travel time we would of been much happier in a Caribbean resort.
We enjoyed 10 days of complete relaxation.
Originally we booked a villa but then upgraded to one with a pool which is definitely worth doing if you want to really have some quiet time.
There are 5 huge pools around the site and they are are rarely busy. We particularly appreciated the adult’s only pool which is located near the gym and spa.
There Is a very impressive range of health and wellbeing classes to join in. If you are into health, take a look on the Robinsons app for what is available. The yoga and Pilates by the beach are a great way to start or end the day.
The exercise classes definitely make you feel better about eating the amazing food that is served. Breakfast by the beach at the terrace restaurant was a great start to each day.
It is worth knowing beforehand that Robinsons is a German chain. We found that many of the staff speak German but they are also fluent in English.
If you want to completely relax and have your biggest decision be whether to swim in one of the pools or go for a dip in the warm ocean and which of the delicious meals to choose then this is the place to come.
We had a fantastic stay in the Robison Club, we stayed in a very nice pool villa. Food was amazing and we really enjoyed the sport program. The show at night was not the best we have ever seen, but at least it was a bit of entertainment. The beach is very long and perfectly clean.
