A brand new hotel (2007) blends classical Thai design with modern touches and surrounds a natural lagoon and tropical garden. The private villas facing the pristine beach include a veranda and are the height of luxury. All the rooms are good sized with LCD television monitors and are splashed with bold strokes of color. Two pools, a spa, beach volleyball, two nearby golf courses and, for us relaxed visitors, a beach massage compliment the day. Take an eco friendly rainforest tour, go scuba diving to see gorgeous coral and ravishing fish, or take a thrilling elephant trek. The hotel is ten minutes to town allowing you to enjoy serenity in this peaceful part of paradise.Khao Lak Emerald Resort & Spa is your one-stop destination for quality hotel accommodation.
