It was a nice quiet hotel”
It was an pleasant stay. We had just 2 days off, so only 1 night we stayed at Le meridian. We could get the room earlier than standard C/I time so we went to swimming pool to relax. Maybe cause of rainy season, it was quiet and peaceful whole property. We enjoyed the beach, Pool, cozy Thai restaurant. I would recommend this hotel to my friend and I 'd like to come back.
very enjoyable! secluded and tranquil.”
As a family with two children aged 13 and 9, we had a great time at this resort. The food was good and we especially liked the High Tea and Italian food. The Activities Sheet should indicate which activities are free and which are chargeable. Counter staff should let guests know upon check-in which days the market in town is open as we only discovered by chance on the day we decided to go to town. Getting ice delivered to the room took a while and sometimes two calls. It would be nice to have a few "lady" sized bicycles at the Sport Centre. Overall, it was a lovely experience.
Nice place for a family holiday”
This hotel is great, but a little on the ageing side. One major issue we had was the rotten tomatoes on the Bloody Mary Breakfast Bar, which went un-noticed for days. When this was pointed out, new rotten tomatoes were the replacement! Not to mention the brown celery.... We upgraded to use the Villa Breakfast Room so as to join our friends staying in this area. The service really needs to improve.
We booked an oceanfront pool villa and arrived with high expectations. To make it short...everything was as expected or even better. The room, the view, the beach...everything perfect! We hope to return next year with the whole family.
Excellent holiday for wide range of travellers”
Highly recommend Le Meridien had a wonderful six days. Hotel is well designed with large spaces and a variety of areas to explore. Great areas for only adults with one pool designated for adults, then super large main swimming pools for younger children, older children. Excellent restaurants food to a very high quality and restaurant staff friendly and very attentive i found there to be a high level of english spoken.
Friendly Staff and Relaxed atmosphere”
It was fantastic, it was so relaxing , the resort is showing its age but for the money spent is was worth every cent. I can recommend Three great beach restaurants with our number one being Rim Lay about 200m south on the beach and Karua Thai and Grandmoms north of the resort on the beach. Grandmons will pick you up from the resort at no charge for the dinner service - tables on the beach fantastic food and super cheap around 350 baht including drinks. tuck tuck t,o Khao Lak is is around 300 to 400 baht ( once in town we got a local guy and his phone number and had many trips with him including a 3 hour trip to the tsunami memorial) restaurants in Khoa Lak are great and good service from number 9 restaurant , snorkelling to Similan Islands with Fantastic tours and they were great, swam with sea turtles and heaps of fish with lunch provided ( paid a little extra to go on a smaller boat -holds 15 and the personal service was great ) booked thru Kwan at Rim Lay Restaurant. We had a great time an recommend it highly. Note: breakfast not included in Agoda deal however as we stayed fir more than 14 days the hotel included it and we had access to the Buffet restaurant and Baan Thai al a carte at no charge.
Went there for 12 days in May,had a wonderful time there. Love the spa pool that allows adult only.There are few restaurants in the resorts that open on alternate days. Daily buffet breakfast was great with good variety of food (it is a bit repetitive after 1 week though),highly recommend the omelette section. The Thai and Italian restaurant on site are the best among the few restaurants. The Latitude 8 bar located in the lobby cannot be missed!They serves great cocktails. The bedroom is spacious but the rain shower wasn't working properly in our room.Think they could do up the room for a bit. Room service turned out to be very tasty and even better than you dining at the Bamboo or Plunge bar there. There are plenty of sun beds on the beach side,no problem to get a nice spot even when it is busy. The baby elephant in the resort is a good entertainment to the kids (even adult).it just makes people smile. Went to the Le Spa few times ,it is another must-try item there.Felt so relaxed! All the staff are very helpful and friendly. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely return again.
Pretty Scenery with lots of Activities for Kids”
Overall great stay. Small child (5 yoa) loved the kids club (made candles, a princess hat, and rode the baby elephant). Enjoyable and relaxing hotel. AREAS OF IMPROVEMENT / RECOMMENDATIONS: If you want to stay in a villa, splurge for the Premium villas. They are brand new and are much nicer than the older villas, which are worn and in need of an update. The food at the resort was tasty but much more expensive than other hotels in the area. The main pool was covered in algae every morning (however they did a good job trying to clean it) and was so deep adults could not stand. Almost all activities were at an additional cost. Several other hotels in Phuket have bikes and paddle boards that guests can sign up for and use for free. While the staff knew there was a jelly fish problem at the time, they did not notify the guests at all of the issue. In off season, there is a limited number of options for breakfast and other meals and some activities (they had a giant trampoline in the ocean the first day) are not available due to the stronger currents.
Great Rooms but Pool Area Not Well Taken Care Of”
Loved our rooms, but the pool area was a little disappointing. The pool did not seem that clean and there were a quite a few bugs. For example, there was a trail of huge red ants next to the kids water slide. My daughter was snorkeling in the pool finding tiles that have come loose. Loved taking pictures with the baby elephant at the hotel. There was a sign when we were at the hotel that there were jellyfish in the water, so we did not spend much time at the beach. We stayed at some other hotels in Khao Lak the same week and had no problem with the water, but it was perhaps a problem with that beach.
Great family experience”
We stayed for 6 nights in the deluxe suite. The room was very nice and spatious (we were 2 adults and 2 children). It is a 350 bath, 15 min ride to the very small center of khao lak (or 2 hrs from Phuket town), so you do not go here for shopping. The area is nice and quiet, and we had very restful days at the hotel. The beach is very nice and the pool section is large. The resort restaurants are ok, a bit pricy but we purchased the kids-pass for 300 bath/day and had all childrens meals for free.
My boyfriend and I found this hotel to be incredibly good value for money. The buffet breakfast was very good and all the restaurants in the hotel were extremely good. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The beach was very nice and the complementary cold water available all day was a nice touch along with the cool towels. The spa pool, which was adult only was fantastically quiet and the main pool was great fun. The baby elephant that was at the hotel everyday was very sweet. Access to wifi in the lobby area was very useful. We thoroughly enjoyed a fantastic holiday here.
Wonderful relaxing holiday”
We has a lovely relaxing holiday with lots of activities to take part in if we wanted to. Fantastic kids club that offered a wide range of activities for our 8yr old. The restaurants offered a wide variety of international food. Wonderful spa facilities.
Excellent Service and Comfort”
Generally, staff is courteous and provide excellent service. e.g. a staff even cover the sundeck cushion with towel for you and roll a towel pillow for the comfort of your head. Free ice water is available on the beach area. There are daily activities to get the guests mix together just like in Club Med. The food prices in all the four restaurants are very reasonable and cheaper than most good hotels in Phuket.
a wonderful experience”
Staying at Le Meridien was a great experience. I ususally research and study all the options of accomodation at the places we travel and all the research I did this time was definetly worth it. We loved the hotel and we also liked the people that worked in it. It is also in a great location, it can be used very well as a base to explore the area: National Parks and beatiful scenery, as well as landmarks are near by and the driving to and from the hotel is quite easy. The restaurants are very good also, specially the Thai.
If you're looking for a quiet, tropical paradise you should choose the Meridien Khao Lak. No disturbance, overall friendly staff, fine food and drinks, clean villas, perfect location. Situated far off any village, I would recommend to get a rent-car for trips to interesting spots outside the hotel borders, such as beautiful waterfalls in the jungle, just a few kilometres from the Meridien, and the Phang-Nga N.P.
Very Nice Indeed”
We have lived in Thailand for years and have stayed at many hotels and resorts. This one is special. We really enjoyed Le Meridien and so did our kids. Our kids loved the pool, the kids' club, and the open garden feeling of the whole resort. The staff are very polite and considerate, the rooms were cleaned in the morning and tidied at night. We were welcomed with beautiful flowers, a cold fragrant towel, and a special drink for each one of us. The lobby area has free high-speed wireless Internet. The breakfast is a huge tasty buffet with cooks waiting to make your waffles, pancakes, omelets, or any number of other tasty hot off the griddle breakfast treats. There are several kinds of fruit, fruit juices, pastries, even Asian dishes and a salad bar. The coffee is hot and served in a small carafe. The pool towels are huge and everything is really well done and lovely. We had such a terrific time here.
Our amazing stay at the le Meridien khao lak”
Its hard to know where to start with our review of this wonderful resort. We were at the le Meridien khao lak for one week and what an amazing week it was. The pools are very warm at the hotel and you can swim in them 24hours per day. the beach is very secluded so you dont have to worry about ppl trying to sell things to you, you can leave your camera and everything in the sunbeds and return after an hour or two with everything still there. The staff was amazing and the resorts ideas and tips for excursions were spot on. Best thing was taking a mountainbike and riding a couple of kilometers to a waterfall to take a wonderfull swim.
Our Deluxe Room was one of the nicest rooms I have ever stayed in, with the bathroom separated from the bedroom by a large window. The resort is gorgeous with many swimming pools including 2 waterslides and real waterpolo goals! The hotel has great free facilities such as the Day Care, Fitness Center, Ping Pong and water sports as well as a few board games in the lobby. The hotel treated us so great for our honeymoon, offering us Sparkling Wine and a "Happy Honeymoon" cake as well as upgrading us to a suite when our Deluxe Room had a small ant problem due to the heavy rain! The only weakness (other than the weather) would be that the hotel is 15 minutes away from anything, which is fine if you don't mind eating at one of the 5 restaurants in the hotel. The only CON I had with this hotel is the fact that it had no sports bar. Since it is very far from the city I would have expected them to at least have 1 TV that carried the EPL soccer games (like most bars in Thailand do) so that I wouldn't have to pay 700 Baht in taxis to go downtown to watch the game in the rain!
Clean room, good taste food”
Good hotel. The room is very big and clean. Good taste food. The staffs must be more friendly and give more smile to guests.
The condition of the hotel is not really worth 5*”
Positieve: Great beach Very nice breakfast Free water all day long at the pool bar Negative: No really a 5* Old rooms, urgently in need of a renovation, espacially if you take into account the price you pay If you want to have breakfast at the restaurant near THE beach, you have to pay extra
