The resort is in a gorgeous setting, in well cared for gardens. The rooms are spacious and well furnished. Our room overlooked a lily pond and was quiet and serene. However it is very much a family resort and the atmosphere around the pool and in the dining room reflects this. If you are after a quiet romantic break this might not be the place for you. Think footballs in the pool and noisy kids at breakfast and dinner in the restaurant. The staff are amazing. We were greeted cheerfully every day by every single one we met. They seem genuinely happy to be working there. Breakfast was very good with an amazing selection of juices and fruit every day as well as the usual fare. We ate at the BBQ twice, the fish was very poor but the composed salads and pasta were excellent.
Wow, such a beautiful resort”
Stayed with my partner for 10 nights in a Thai styled bungalow. Absolutely wonderful. The staff spoke very good English. The breakfast was one of the best we have had in all our travels. Extremely well maintained grounds. Thailand the Land of Smiles was evident here. We swam in the pool every day, it was such a good atmosphere. Very quiet and relaxing. Would definately be returning.
Excellent in every feature”
My wife and I stayed at this hotel as we traveled across southern Thailand, and it is a terrific hotel. The beach is 100 yards across the street but easy to access. We watched the sunset from an excellent restaurant on the beach and walked 5 minutes back to our room. The Thai lanna style bungalows are picturesque and the entire resort has a good Thai cultural feeling. We liked the outdoor shower, the high ceilings, and Thai decor very much. The pool was always busy but big enough to accommodate everyone. The pool bar and deck chairs made relaxing easy. The breakfast area was pleasant and the selection of food was incredible and delicious. This hotel is good for honeymooners, families, and anyone who wants to experience Thai hospitality and luxury at the same time.
Loved it! ”
Nice big rooms, loved living in the room, nicely decorated. Only tried the breakfast, which was good, there was many things to choose from. Buffet. There iscreme milkeshake is to die for, especially the strawberry! Nice surroundings, quiet. Friendly staff. Close to the beach and town, lots of good dining nearby.
Friendly and peaceful ”
Had a very very pleasant stay at the hotel, was my birthday during the stay and my friend had organized champagne and cake, had a lovely surprise when all the reception staff came around to sign happy birthday. Had a room which I was not happy with as on ground floor, they managed to move me within house to a higher floor which I appreciated. The hotel is quiet and set in nature so very peaceful compared to the other hotels around there. It is also a very short walk from the beach. Will go again to this hotel.
Great Hotel and location.”
Nice big rooms with balconies. It is a very relaxing place away from road and any noise.The hotel pool, gardens and grounds are lovely. Staff are really welcoming and helpful. The breakfast is great with lots of variety and choices.
From the lobby to your room is pretty far and you have to walk up and down some steps. Not very easy if you have some heavy bags to carry. And you will feel lazy to walk back to your room after the day's outing. However, the lush surroundings will make it less bad. The pools and plants around the area will welcome you and you will feel like you were transported to some exotic island. Book early so that you can check the dates of low season and get a good bargain.
Excellent place to stay and relax. Big pool, huge rooms, nice staff, close to beautiful beach, reasonable prices. Its exactly opposite of Patong, what is the best part of the story!!! There is no noisy streets around, any whores houses or overpriced bad hotel as in Patong, but still is possible to find bar with good drink and good music. Possible to make trips to Similan island and other places around. Great for people who wanna to relax. This is my place in Thailand and definitely I will get back again.
Firstly the whole area of khao lak is very Quiet,and nothing like Patong , samui, with bars and restuarents until early hours of morning. No one in hotel, restaurents , bars, hassel you in anyway. The beach is wonderful,with a few restaurants and massage parlours. Would always recommend a massage for one hour, they make you feel so good the next day. My 5 days stay, first time here, would recommend to anyone, and would book this hotel again. I live in Thailand, and this was a pleasant holiday break seeing friend from England with my thai wife.
Will come back”
I love the good and friendly service. Well prepared room. They also provide free shuttle service to the main road. We we having early flight. They helped us to prepare simple breakfast during our journey to airport. The Thai Spa is so so only, can try those massage outside.
Beautiful Thai-style resort on lovely grounds”
We were served at check-in by a staff from the Philippines and his English and level of service was excellent. We had a free upgrade to a Bungalow room which was very spacious and well-designed. We decided to have a late lunch about 3pm at the restaurant but the staff were not very on the ball and we had much difficulty trying to be served. There is no room service at this resort. Unfortunately we also arrived at the peak of the family holiday season and the pool was completely full of young children and teenagers, which is great if you are here for a family holiday, but not so good for a young couple wanting some peace and quiet. All in all though, would definitely stay here again, but will be careful about travelling during school holidays.
Great place to stay which matched the surroundings”
Khaolak is beautiful place and the hotel was in tune with the area. Great place for people to stay ( be it families, couples or any group wishing to have a relaxing holiday). The staff were always attentive and were well versed in quality customer service. My partner and I would definitely return and would recommend this hotel to othe travellers.
Nice hotel @ good location”
From the beginning to the end, we received an excellent service. The hotel has very nice bungalows with privacy. Ideal place to relax, and get back energy. WiFi is for free. The rooms are spacious and very clean. Everything has a high standard and close to luxury. Pictures on the WebSite show what you get. The location is great, close to the beach but quite and still close o restaurants.
Resort Hotel with great service”
This hotel offers a great discount during the low season. The breakfast is great with a vast variety of choices. The only negative point is that there is no WIFI access in the lobby and room. Guests are asked to go to the sister Oriental hotel next door to access to Internet and WIFI. We were told that WIFI and Internet access will be made available after October. Swimming is great for adult and children alike.
Went to Khaolak Bhandari Resort & Spa for an overnight from Phuket, so it happened that I arrived quite early, and could enjoy swimming on the beach, and in the pool as well, which was just great. I cannot comment on the food, as we just had breakfast in the resort, but this was quite good, especially compared to what you can get in some other places. There are plenty of shops and restaurants around, especially on the main street. However, more than five years after the Tsunami, Khaolak still resembles a ghost town. This means you have the place more or less for you alone, in new unworn facilities.
we booked 2 nights and stayed for 4-agodas deal was really good.it was cheaper to book again with agoda than to book at reception!the hotel is really nice and is set in lush gardens.we were there at a quiet time and found it very peaceful and relaxing.there are places to walk to nearby for food and drink but the prices in the hotel were very reasonable.our room was near the spa and a really good size.a definite return visit is planned.
Very Good Value Near The Beach”
Ok, so my title of 'very good value' is based on the fact that I got an excellent price booking through Agoda. The hotels published rates seem on the high side to me but I guess they are for high season. I managed to get a Thai Style Chalet. The location of the hotel is supurb being just a one minute walk to the beach. The hotel doesnt have its own stretch but that isnt really a problem as it is only a short stroll across the access road to the front of the hotel. The swimming pool area is lovely with lots of sun beds around. The only critisism I would have was that the pool in late afternoon was very warm. In the sweltering heat, I prefer a colder, more refreshing swim. The hotel gardens are very well maintained so walking around the resort is very pleasant indeed. There are a couple of very friendly dogs that walk around greeting the guests!!! The room was very comfortable but I was not very impressed with the air conditioning. It only seemed to function on one temperature. Whilst this was OK at night time (when cooler outside), during the day it wasn't cold enough for my liking.
Lovely staff and thai style hotel but a little dated”
Great staff, amazing tranquill pool area and nice Thai style hotel and perfect gardens that gives the enter place a relaxing feeling. Rooms were very big which is always nice. The only cons are the place is aging a little bit and could do with a lift. Additionally there are some small low cost improvements in the rooms which could give the place an almost 5 star feel.
Amazing Customer Service, Very Clean”
Really nice location, close to the beach, and very nice staff! When they found out we were on our honeymoon, they treated us very nicely. (They gave us cake, and upgraded our room!) We'd definitely stay here again if we're in the area. Stellar service.
Nice stay in great location”
I booked the Bhandari for the last 4 nights of my stay - they were overbooked, however gave me a great room with poolaccess at their sister hotel (next door, at the same premises). Furthermore I was compensated with a complimentary voucher for a aromatherapy massage - which was just terrific. The hotel has a great location with just 5 minutes walk to the beach. In about 10 minutes walk you are in the Khaolak Centre with a lots of shops, restaurants, bars - there is quite a buzzle at night - which makes it really nice to spend the evening/night there. Can recommend the hotel Bhandari and Oriental resort. Nice buffet breakfast - with a large variety of choice.
