Beautiful beachside resort”
Hassle free check-in and check-out, free wifi in the bar, friendly staff, clean rooms.
Nice hotel, good location”
Nice stay there with the comfortable room, but poor buffet dinner and breakfast. need a lot of improvement in this area.
Love it, would come back again!”
Taking a break from work, my family and I had a great weekend at Khaolak Merlin Resort. The room where we stayed has great ocean and pool view. I can see from the balcony my daughter enjoying herself with young children friend playing at the pool. And I have a relaxing and peaceful time either doing nothing or some reading. I would come back again for a longer stay.
Nice clean hotel”
Just returned from a long weekend at the Khaolak Merlin Resort with very mixed feelings, on arrival we were very impressed by the quick friendly service by the front desk staff that checked us in. We were given an upgrade to a deluxe room which yes very spacious and clean with a beautiful bathroom. Throughout the weekend we really enjoyed the food, drink and service on offer until we received a message to go to reception to see the manager who then proceeded to inform us that we had more drink in our room mini bar than was there the day before therefore we must of stolen it from another room! This manager was very rude, abrupt and unprofessional. Although we were very unhappy and upset by this situation and the way the manager had treated us we continued to enjoy our holiday. We used the hotel taxi service to go to Phuket for the evening, the driver was really good he waited for us until 11.30pm and drove very safe. When it came to checking out yesterday we settled our room charges bill after breakfast although we stayed at the hotel until we left for the airport at 7pm, before departing we were confronted by the front desk supervisor who was extremely rude and aggressive towards us. She was shouting at my because she said we did not pay our bill despite the fact I had the receipt include my credit card receipt which clearly stated everything had been paid for. This hotel is really nice and enjoyable place but unfortunately the management really let it down, after a lovely stay we left with a very bitter taste! Would not go back here again purely for this reason, very disappointed.
It was a very relaxing holiday,lovely surrarouding”
Would recommend for couples and family. Very nice area with peaceful beach. Very high ceiling with tropical ceiling fan for good air circulation. AC cool and fresh.
We stayed during peak season, adn it was very crowded. We chose to move to other beaches everyday as the resort beach and area was over-crowded. The food was quite poor. We were disapointed with the breakfast (I guess most dishes were leftover from teh dinner buffet from the previous night). We also had a desert one night that was terrible.
very nice hotel! courteous service! low level of e”
we enjoyed very much our holiday in a hotel. interesting vegetation lovely beach. an authentic atmosphere. evening activities: concerts and dinners and special tastings. acceptable bit pricey spa in thailand.
wonderful resort just loved it !”
Great stay, wonderful grounds, pool, spa and perfect beach. Quiet and very relaxing.
gorgeous resort, jungle atmosphere, great service.”
enjoyed the resort and friendly staff, great accomadations, food, service and queit.
Lovely hotel, with excellent service”
i loved my stay at khaolak merlin resort and would come back and stay if i ever get another opportunity. it was easy to find, the staff were all positive and friendly and welcoming and accommodating, which was just lovely. i loved the way the resort was in blocks which were easy to navigate and focusing towards the various pools, which were surrounded by lovely mature trees and birds, lizards, and squirrels. the pools each offered a different attmosphere, some with waterfalls, some with jets, some with rocks, some with bridges, all unique. the beach was incredible for walking and splashing. we enjoyed a massage while listening to the waves on the beach, and the sea breeze. the breakfast and lunch restaurant was lovely down by the beach, and the lounge upstairs with wifi was very welcoming and comfortable to socialize in. the beach chairs on the grass by the beach was lovely because of the grass, the shade, and the view. all in all..... wonderful, and i will recommend your resort to my friends!!!
Amazing hotel with lush gardens and various pools.”
We really enjoyed our stay overall and would come back in non-peak season if the rates were reasonable. Our room was a bit musty and the pool outside our room seemed to be having filter problems but the rest of the place was absolutely wonderful.
the promotional spa package for the green season is worth the price, 1000 bhat for 10 mins of steam bath, 30 mins body scrub and 60 mins body massage.
My daughter was very enjoyable here”
it is very nice and beautiful hotel, located with the beach front. my daughter was very enjoyable with swimming pools, kid club. good atmosphere. good for relexing with family, spending time together. the room was also clean and good. the staff were helpful. this resort is highly reccommended.
Wonderfull location,atmosphere,mind service,smile”
the hotel is really nice and beatiful.food is amazing--i love breakfast,pool spot and front beach bar.you really can get deep quietly lay back and feel like home at the same time!
Very Quiet and relaxing”
This was our first stop on our trip and stayed at the Khoa Lak Merlin for 5 nights. The staff were so polite and very afficient. Khoa Lak is a very quiet area and there isnt much to do but we were away of that and loved Khoa Lak as a chance to wind down and begin our holiday. We had massages at the spa and beers on the beach and by the pool. Because we went in the low season the was hardly anyone staying here which was great. It felt like we had the place to ourselves...so service was very prompt. The food was very cheap and really nice...i had the best Phad Thai wrap in egg and was only about 5 dollars. Great start to our thailand experience.
Lovely hotel but very very far from everything”
this is a lovely hotel but make sure your happy to eat all your meals in the hotel. there is nothing for miles around except for 3 restaurants that only open in high season. to get a taxi into khao lak is very expensive and sometimes not even available. lovely hotel if you plan to stay only at the hotel.
fantasic hotel extra large rooms and ceilings ”
we stayed 3weeks and next time we would stay a month during the start of the low season or end to get fantasic value for your hard earn hoilday money.and take the grand childred, even though there where very few childred. during the low season the swimming pool bar is not open no music at night hotel dead. have to go into town for amusment.
Luxurious stay right from the start. ”
We arrived late as the aircraft broke down and we had to be rescheduled nearly two hours. Arriving in the dark by car was daunting but the Merlin is well signposted from Phuket Airport. We were welcomed in the lobby and a drink and cool towel were just the right thing after our hour plus drive. Our room was to a very high standard and clean. It was clear after the first nih\ght that my wife was not handling the 17 steps to the second floor well, so we asked for a room change to a ground floor unit. We were offered two immediately and assisted to move across. In all we stayed for five nights and found the service and breaksfast great. We had a car but there was ample SongTheow transport to Khaolak if you needed it. There are restuarants and shops, minimart nearby. We tried a first for us... late night room service and it was prompt and delicious.
We stayed for 10 days in the low season,so the resort was not crowded at all,which was great.The staff were very attentive and friendly,we managed to have some great conversations about each other's lives and so on.The facilities are well spread out and cater to all age groups.We particularly enjoyed having the beach frontage with the loungers on the grass looking out to sea and the pool complexes as a backup when we tired of the surf.The food was great and not overly expensive for an establishment of this type,so we ate in the resort a lot of the time and really enjoyed the surroundings.Creative rotation of a number of the breakfast dishes was a bonus as the next place we stayed after here was same-same every day and not as nice.Our congratulations to all the catering staff.Would stay here again.Not too far to pop over the hill to Kaoh Lak town for a change of scenery.You can hire a scooter for BHT200/day just outside the resort.All-in-all a very pleasant stay.
Khaolak Merlin Resort”
We liked the hotel and greenery, unfortunately the spa was under renovation, so we couldn't fully explore it. The massage treatment was ok. The restaurant kitchen was dissapointing, too touristic, not very fresh food. The lounge is a good hangout spot during rain. Not much to do there during "green season".
Good place for a family ”
I think in general, this is defenitely one of the most relaxing hotel in khaolak. The room itself is spacious and the service is quite decent. Foods are also better than some other hotels around that i've been stayed. Overall i would give 4 stars for them.
First time in Khao Lak”
The resort is well displayed and located with the beach front. We did enjoyed our stay there and the staffs are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast offers a lot of choices to pick. The spa is also worth a visit. The view from our room is super. We would recommend this resort to our friends.
A Delightful Stay ”
I have been a frequent visitor to Thailand for over 25 years and have sampled almost every resort area. Merlin was one of the best, comparing very favorably to the more expensive Anantara in Hua Hien, whose layout it resembles. The hotel is very well managed. This is reflected in their dining facilities. At every meal the restaurant manager was on site monitoring and supervising, and the chef as well, checking that the buffet platters were full and well presented. I was very impressed.
Luxury at a cut-rate price”
The Merlin is a luxury resort, and it feels like it. The resort gets all the big things right: the accommodation, the service, the food, the landscaped grounds, the beautiful pools (they really are creatively designed). If you just want to relax by the water, this is the place for you. In addition, the nearby village and family-run restaurants on the beach provide wonderful eating-out options, and mean that you don't feel trapped into buying resort-priced meals.
Slick holiday resort”
Staff is lovely, in particular bell-staff and restaurant/room service, pool-scape of the hotel is lovely and well laid-out. Beach is a definite plus. The variety at breakfast is wonderful, but there is a lack of variety in the general a-la-carte menu for lunch as well as for dinner.
the hotel is very very nice. the pools are great - we had rooms with pool access. the kids could play table pool - but we need to pay for it. the staff were ok. the italian restaurant is ok. the evening show was ok. we liked the singer. BUT - the hotel is far away from the "city". if you want to eat outside, (the hotel offers just 2 or 3 kinds of restaurants) the hotel offers a very expensive shuttle. so you need to pay a lot unless you have a car.
Relaxing vacation with kids”
We stayed at Merlin Resort for almost 2 weeks. Location at the beach is very nice. we had a bigger room with a balcony on the higher floor, that worked out great for us, since there are mosquitos on the lower levels.Staff was very nice and taking a good care of us. Used also spa services, that were excellent.
I stayed for a week for a post surgery recovery time. The hotel was quiet and clean, the service was good, and the staff helpful. The grounds were lush and there was not a bug problem. There is plenty of seating by the pools or near the beach (although chairs cannot be brought in the sand). The beach is clean and swimming was good all day. The water was quite warm. Some of the hotel lounges were closed due to the decreased number of visitors and the only option for lunch was the pool/beach cafe. The main drawback is the hotel is very isolated with no other options for food or shopping within walking distance. You need to take a taxi into Khao Lak city for any other options.
merlin khao lak review”
Stayed here for 3 nights as I wanted to be close to the similan islands for a day trip. Great hotel, great location, excellent big clean pools. There is not much to do at night in khao lak but there are some nice quiet restaurants in town. The room and hotel was excellent. I would definitely recommend a day trip to similan islands.
Merlin resort hotel”
Even if we stayed there only for 2 nights, and it rained every day. The beach is beautiful, our kids really liked the place (12 and 9 years old). The food was really good.
Very nice resort”
the hotel is very nice. we had a pool access room - which made it more convenient. but: the cabinet is in the bathroom and I didn't like the idea, hotel shuttle to the city cost 150 baht per person (return), outside the hotel there is only one restaurant in a Walkung distance. you need to have a private car, or to use the shuttle in order to eat outside. Otherwise, stick to the hotel restaurants. The breakfast is very good. We didn't eat at the seafood restaurant. But the second restaurant, Italian/Thai fare, offered low quality food at high prices. The lounge is nice. in the evening there were two singers, who sang 70's songs.
One of our favorites”
We loved the Khao Lak Merlin. We visited during the low season and they were repairing one of the pools but we had two more to choose from so it was no problem. Our rooms were great!! Nice, spacious, and great bathrooms. If you are looking for a quite place to get away from it all, please book the Merlin during the low season. It was ideal for a relaxing getaway. However, being away from it all, it was not as easy to get in to town for a variety of food options and shopping. The village area is several miles from the hotel. Still, we loved the hotel and had a wonderful stay.
A Top Resort”
I'm surprised this resort isn't raved about more. Certainly exceeded our expectations and is beautifully appointed. Surprisingly low rates considering the work that has gone into the resort.
Khao Lak Merlin, Excellent Value.”
Use the local mini mart for your laundry. Great service at a fraction of the hotel price.Our children were never bored. The many pools and beach walks had them tired by days end.The food is great and the service excellent.The spa facilities and gym are superb.
家族連れで、プールやビーチで遊ぶにはとてもいいと思いました。 無料の卓球台や有料ビリヤードがあり、4泊しても飽きることなく楽しく過ごせました。ただ、12/31のガラディナーは高かった割に、ビュッフェのご飯は良かったのですが、カウントダウンパーティーが・・・。まあ、花火はすごい迫力で、ダイナミックに、派手に上がって良かったです。 プーケットの空港からは、ホテルの送迎を使う事をお勧めします。空港のタクシーは親切でない人が多いので。
このサイトでの予約時に部屋がsuperiorしか空いていなかった為、そちらを予約したが実際部屋に入ってみると、思いのほか狭く、海からも遠かった。 運よくデラックスが開いていたので、追加料金を支払い変更したもらい、正解だった。 海にもぐっと近くなり、部屋もとても過ごしやすかった。 海はきれいではないが(透明度という意味で）、ビーチサイドでのんびりするには問題なし。
Hôtel dans un cadre idyllique”
Magnifique et confortable hôtel dans le style thai qui est tellement étendu qu'on a jamais l'impression d'avoir du monde même si il est plein. Petits restos pas loin sur la plage à droite et Khao Lak est à 6 mn de taxi. On y a très bien mangé. Le seul bémol, comme dans bcp d'autres hôtels d'ailleurs, les chaises longes sont vides mais prises (linge) dès le matin.. Excellente connection wifi gratuite dans le lobby
Hotel immense avec un très bon accueil à la réception; Jolies chambres sans vis à vis avec des piscines et des bassins qui coulent tout autour; clientèle essentiellement du nord de l'Europe Le jardin est vraiment tres beau avec le nom des différentes plantes et la plages est dans une jolie baie, il y a des bar sympa le long de la plage
Pas de problemes cet hotel est superbe. Cinq piscines en cascades, des chambres tres spacieuses et une literie tres confortable. Il manque un peu d'authenticité et les services sont chers. Le taxi coute 230BHt pour la ville contre 150Bht à la borne voisine. On ne peu pas consulter internet 5 mn il faut prendre une carte d'une heure! Bref c'est beau mais tout se paye. Le rapport qualité prix est excellent et le buffet du petit dejeuner tres fourni. Rien à dire sur le service qui est parfait. Un bel endroit pour se reposer, pour faire des connaissances, il vaut mieux être allemands! Sur la plage, bonne nouriture au Jo sea food pas loin (à droite) ou au poseidon un peu plus loin à gauche sur la plage.
Es war okay...”
+ lage und personal - für thailand verhältnisse zu teuer, für uns ein 3 sterne resort.
Großes Hotel mit ruhiger Lage undt tollen Pools”
Das Hotel ist etwas abgelegen vom Stadtzentrum von Kao Lak aber sehrschön gelegen. Uns hat der Aufenthalt sehr gefallen doch es war etwas ruhig in der Umgebung.
super Lage an tollem, kleinen Sandstrand”
wer viel Action und Ausgehangebote sucht, ist hier falsch. Sehr ruhige Gegend, im Vergleich zu Patong, Kata oder Kalong Beach. Aber deshalb um so erholsamer. Guter Service, OK Frühstück und tolle Lage direkt am kleinen und schönen Sandstrand. Besonders zu bemerken ist die große Terasse am Zimmer mit Meerblick. Schöne Alternative zum Pool. Meine Empfehlung auf Phuket hat dieses Hotel.
schöne Anlage,zimmer brauchen "brush up"”
goßteils des personals sehr freundlich,hilfsbereit.zimmer sin sauber leider schon etwas abgenutzt. die preise sind für die zimmer etwas überzogen,würde das hotel jedoch weiterempfehlen!
편안하고 조용한 리조트,수영장에 그늘이 부족하고 직원들이 호텔등급에 비해 친절도가 떨어짐.”
대체로 편안하고 안락한 리조트임,아침 조식도 간단히 먹을만하고 수영장 시설도 나쁘지 않아 애들하고 놀기도 적당했음.호텔 주변 5분 거리에 로컬 편의 시설이 있어서 점심,저녁 이용하기에 편리함. 아쉬운점은 첫 체크인 할때,그리고 마지막 체크 아웃할때 카운터 직원들의 응대가 이 리조트의 얼굴이고 이미지를 대표한다고 생각하는데,참 아쉽게도 호텔 얼굴인 카운터 직원의 수준이나 응대가 형편없는 점에 이 리조트의 시설들이 아깝다는 느낌이 들정도임.(호텔등급 대비,직원들의 서비스 수준이 가장 떨어진 호텔임 )
eine hotelressort anlage im urwald für mich als europaer ein traum. habe noch nie so viele verschiedene pflanzen in einer solchen harmonie angetroffen. bedanke mich bei meinen freunden die seit neun jahren das ressort besuchen und mich für einen kurztripp zu ihnen überzeugten. es spricht ja für sich selbst, seit der eröffnung ist der gleiche sehr freundliche general manager und ein grosser teil des personals hier tätig. werde das ressort in meinem bekanntenkreis bestens empfehlen. freundliche grüsse peter baumgartner
Mysigt hotel men restaurangerna soso..”
Enkelt att boka via agoda. Smidigt att checka in, fina rum. Fin strand, bra lage.
