Situated in an idyllic spot less than two hours up the coast from Phuket, the tranquil seaside town of Khao Lak is the perfect getaway for the discerning traveler: there’s less wild partying, more appreciation for the area’s world-class scuba diving and the kind of pristine beaches you could spend hours lounging on. Khao Lak even has restrictions on how tall buildings can be in order to preserve the area’s sleepy charm. X2 Khao Lak Anda Mani Resort embodies this spirit, with just nine rooms and villas set along its white-sand beach, all against a lush mountain backdrop.
With resorts across Thailand that emphasise high design and luxury, X2 has earned a loyal following among travelers who like their holidays with a slice of serenity. The suites are elegant and tastefully designed, highlighted by expansive open verandas that are ideal for taking in the stunning sunsets. Social life centers around the free-form swimming pool and the 4K Restaurant, where your culinary desires are fulfilled and dishes are served in a stunning setting. Whatever your game, peacefulness is the aim here.
Looking more like a SoHo loft than a Thai resort room, the 540-square-foot Suite at X2 Khao Lak Anda Mani boasts light woods, sharp angles and chic furnishings. The luxe bathrooms have double vanities and rain showers and are stocked with handpicked amenities. Of course, you’re not likely to forget where you are after catching the epic sunset from the open veranda.
Amenities- Hair dryer- Wi-Fi- Minibar- Tea and coffee facilities- Bottled water- Flat-screen TV- Desk- Safe- Air conditioning
Guests flock throughout the day to 4K – pronounced “fork” – which offers a mix of Thai and international dishes that are always fresh and seasonal.
Khao Lak is conveniently located just an hour’s drive north of Phuket International Airport, though its blissed-out vibe makes it feel much more remote. The area is perfect for exploration, whether you borrow a bike from the resort to visit nearby temples and waterfalls or opt to take a day trip out to the Similan Islands for a diving session.
How to Get There
Me and my friend got a complimentary voucher for 2 nights. Eve though we stayed at the resort with the voucher but we received full price service. Everyone from
GM to staffs were very friendly and welcoming. Nong Ploy the intern was very lovely.
Definitely recommended to stay. The room is very spacious, the location is right next to the beach and quiet - perfect getaway!
Thank you the team for giving me such a memorable experience.
We went for a friend's wedding and the hotel's service was simply amazing! They paid attention to a lot of details and looked after everyone's need. The access to private beach was also prefect for someone who wants to host the wedding ceremony or avoid the crowd. The only thing I was a little disappointed was that the pool was pretty deep (1.5 meter) so it's a little hard for me (1.65m) to relax.
Our stay at X2 was beyond excellent. Spacious room with very stylish furniture and quality modern finishing, great staff with personalized care for 24 hours, romantic atmosphere, amazing food and beautiful beach right in front of the resort. They were all way better than what we expected. Perfect location for couples. This is truly a gem in Khao Lak. Thank you for making our holiday extra special and making us feel like a king and a queen :-).
We spent two weeks and over Christmas at the X2 Khao Lak and I can honestly state that this is one of the most charming places I ever stayed on a holiday.
Beginning with a warm welcome and a quick check in we received a free upgrade to a villa (thanks Chris) which is definitely a large, bright and comforting space. Entry in living room, super large bed, big bathroom with rainshower and bathtub and many amenities do leave nothing to be desired. Housekeeping comes twice a day. Big extra beach towels free at the reception (nice for trips as well).
Just great, with just several rooms you always have a lot of space and free seats in this small garden, with a little pool as well and a nice sea view. You feel more like in a private villa. Beach is beautiful and not crowded. If you want a big hotel with large facilities, that is not the place to be. But if you want a luxury, quite and private atmosphere, X2 is your choice.
Service and Staff:
Outstanding! I never felt so welcome and cared for in a 5 star hotel. The small size gives you the little extra personality and individuality. Everyone from manager, service, housekeeping up to the security and the guys who fix everything around the facility always have a smile and a nice word or gesture for you and all do a great job to ensure you a comfortable stay. Being there for Christmas was the little extra. We were invited for free dinner and party at Christmas Eve and all put so much effort and heart in it, ending up dancing all together, greatest compliments! We had a great time!
Breakfast is a well-chosen mix from eastern and western dishes, like fried noodles or noodle and rice soup, several egg dishes, bread, pancakes. I do like if quality is chosen over quantity and here that is definitely the case. Always fresh fruits, fresh juice and tasty coffee choices. In addition, the a la carte breakfast ensures everything is made fresh for you and your day starts decelerating your life. Very relaxing.
We had dinner on Christmas and meals are quite good as well, nice choices of local food, wine and spirits and kitchen fulfils every wish you may have.
Seldom, 5 stars on Tripadvisor are so well deserved. Thanks X2 team, hope we’ll meet again!
Definitely the best ever resort in Khao Lak. Great location with direct access to the beach. Real gem with incredible sunsets over Indian Ocean. Very professional staff is always eager to help you. Cosy restaurant offers all day long breakfast with both European and Thai cuisine. Absolute bliss and total relaxation for your mind and body. Literally the tropical paradise you hope to get back soon.
