Clean, quiet, friendly staff, need some renovations”
Hotel is clean and quiet.
Staff is very friendly, although most of them struggle with the english, like any other place in Thailand.
They have organized day trips a bit cheaper than most places.
They have massages by the pool, but not exactly the best skilled masseuses.
The breakfast is very good and the restaurant also provides good food for relatively cheap price.
Air conditioning has some issues.
It has the beach right in front of it, which is very nice! Provides a clear view on the sunset.
Location is a bit far from Khaolak center, but you can get a shuttle for 100THB return per person.
Did I mention the staff is very friendly?

Simply cozy and grand at the same time. The beach itself is opaque due to silt, if you care about snorkelling.

Objective review - Very Good”
First stay for us at the Orchid Beach Resort. Stayed at the JJ Marriott further up the same beach last year but this was a lot pricier in January than the Orchid Beach Resort.
The resort is on quiet Khuk Khak Beach in Khao Lak. Its a long stretch of golden sand with a dozen mostly small resorts on the whole beach. The hotel is located across a quiet service road from the beach with a handful of local bars and restaurants providing an alternative to the hotel's one evening restaurant, Verve 29.
The guests when we stayed were mostly Scandinavian, with a few English, German and French, mainly middle aged to older couples, only a small number of children. Guests appear come back to the Orchid Beach Resort years after year, and after staying there we can tell why.
The hotel has approx. 80 rooms on three floors, two pools, one main pool with swim up bar, kids pool and Jacuzzi, and another smaller adults-only pool. The hotel is crescent shaped with reception at one end, mini-market and spa, then breakfast area, then rooms around to the adult only pool at the other end. In the middle of the crescent is the main pool, massage huts and gardens. Next to reception is the lunch and evening restaurant.
Our room was large and generally well maintained, though it has a damp smell when we arrived. There was an air purifier in the room which dealt with this problem fairly quickly. The room had all the usual comforts and a small balcony overlooking the garden. Housekeeping serviced the room daily, one slight issue being the state of the duvet covers which largely had darned holes in them. A minor issue though, as the linen was always very clean, though something the hotel could improve on.
Breakfast was excellent, plenty of choice, eggs cooked to order in any style, a mixture of western and Asian foods, and wonderful service. I have read other reviews on the resort which criticized the service but we couldn't fault it. The staff were all friendly and very helpful.
We ate at the hotel

Hotel and pool was nice, staff was bad”
The hotel is a bit old, but it is still nice. The room is quite big.
The hotel is far from the center, and they have a shuttle bus that you have to pay extra for.
Is was very nice to relax at the pool. And the hotel had a private beach.
The reception staff was very rude, and we all (in total 4 people) wondered about their bad behaviour. Otherwise the staff was good, it was only the ladies at the reception who seemed arrogant and maybe they just did not like their job.
We can recommend this hotel if you are looking for a relaxed stay in Khao Lak, and if you are okay with the fact that there is not so much going on here (khao lak is quite small, and maybe best for families).

A quiet escape”
Stayed 3 nights in October - out of season, so the resort was quiet. Beach was almost empty. Good facilities and the beach is straight over the road, with a good view of the beach from the room balcony. Downside to the location is that it is a bit far to walk to town, so have to rent a bike or pay for the shuttle or taxis, and it is a long drive from Phuket airport, so need to allow time and expense for this.

Close to the beach and nice rooms, rude staff ”
Staff were rude compared to other hotels I've stayed at in the area, its close to the beach but nothing else, need to take a shuttle into town (and pay for it). Many of the facilities were closed for low season....I know its low season but you still have paying guests - Much better hotels in the area with less arrogant staff

Not much to complain about.”
After having spent the 1st half of May at this wonderful family resort, 8 days of that with 2 young grandchildren, found this resort had much to offer if you love relaxing on the beach or the pool. 2 downsides; 1 was the lack of natural shade like Palms trees etc, as the timber surrounding the pools would peel the skin off your feet, even wearing thongs/flip flops, you could still feel the heat. The umbrellas did litle to save you.
The other was having to wait until 6:30/7:00am for breakfast, my wife and I plus grandkiddies were always up early.The staff did their best to get the little ones sorted.
I found it a bit cheeky of the resort to charge patrons "of the resort " money to get you to either Khao Lak or the Bang Niang Market and back, minimal as the cost was. Certainly didn't mess up the holiday. If its peace you want then this is the place to be.
1 complaint that I would like addressed is WHY after having apparently paid the bill, arranged a wake up call and collection of luggage from room by 6:15 am the following morning, none of this happened. And then when I get to reception to inquire about my bill and other QUESTIONS there wasn't a soul to be found ????????? I'm glad I'd had the forthought to arrange my own transportation.

Lovely quiet resort on the beach”
The beach was absolutely beautiful and we often had it all to ourselves. In the heat of the day the hotel also has an enormous dvd collection you can borrow.

A beautiful resort spoilt only by the usual problem of European's putting towels on sun beds on the beach and not using them for half the day.

Solid 3-star hotel on the beach”
beach, breakfast, atmosphere
This hotel has a high rating on Agoda, I mostly agree, but I wish to have a better room for money paid (it's expensive in a high season).
The classic room is a standard 3-star thai room with a noisy a/c and poor decoration, the bed is harder than usual and the pillow is a cheap synthetic one.
Over than that, the hotel is very good, the breakfast is great for 3 stars, the food is really cheap if you use the restaraunts nearby, the nature is a miracle, the beach is good. The water is not so clean as Phuket's best beaches though.
Please keep in mind that there is nothing in a walking distance except 2 street cafes, and the shuttle is so not cheap for everyday ride.
For myself I prefer Andamania hotel, which is cheaper and has much better rooms.
