The resort is beautiful. Kids club was amazing for kids and parents alike. Lots of activities for young and old. Access to many bars and restaurants. Access to the beach. Staff were the most kind and beautiful people 😁

After a long and busy year, we were looking forward to a tranquil and relaxing 2 weeks at The Sands, our fourth visit. we were first attracted to Khao Lak, after Phuket became too busy and westernised, because of it's village like atmosphere and less crowds.

We discovered The S

We had a great stay. Friendly staff and great facilities for kids and adults. The room we stayed in was a family room with pool access which is great for parents that seek some pool fun during the day sleep of their kids. We'll return next year!

We stayed in room 5202 which had good access to the rest of the resort, I could imagine that some rooms feel like quite a hike to breakfast but ours was only a short distance and good access to the pool with the jelly fish bar. This was the lead in catagory so it was a good room

Hi Khao Lak holidayers, we’re travelling to khao lak in early january. How are the jellyfish at khao lak beach at the moment? I’ve read lots of reports of stings in the past but nothing this year...
We didn’t experience any but it is just going into the main hottest period would just advise with caution as the sting nasty

Ceiling beam collapse at the sands? I just read a review on a different website from someone who stayed at the sands in august 2018 and a ceiling beam in the talay restaurant collapsed injuring 6 people including a 6 year old. Can anyone confirm that? We’re travelling with 3 kids, now i’m concerned about whether the waterpark standards are ok for the high season.
Everything is alright there. I've seen no damages. It's the best hotel tot go with children. Everything is provided for children. Enjoy your stay!

Thinking of going here June 2019. What is the weather like for this month. All different weather sites give different information so I was hoping for a response from either people that have stayed in June or from locals. We did Mauritius in June had a good 2 weeks and Maldives where we had a couple of long showers but mainly sunny. Thanks
The hotel is right by the rain forest so I’d take this into consideration- were here now and it’s rained non stop for 24 hrs and this isn’t rainy season.

Hi we are thinking of going in March.Do you recommend changing money here or in Thailand ? Thanks Pat
Hi pat. I take it all back. Change it in Thailand. We’ve had to change money today. And got a much better rate. At home we got 34.1 to the pound. In Thailand we got a rate of 41.9 so much better.

Where is the best place to get money out near the resort?
Dear CKerger, There are many places for money exchange, banks as well as ATM's directly in Khao Lak village - around 7 minutes walk from The Sands Khao Lak. Hope to see you soon! Best wishes, Evelin Boos (Lin) Customer Relations Manager

"Rooms on the north side closer to beach so you can view the wonderful sunsets. These are Junior Seaside Suites."
"Sea view southern wing for couples... nice and quiet, close to beach and pools"
"Avoid the 3 Pool Access rooms directly across from Main bar near reception."
"Ocean view rooms on the 2nd-3rd floors are quiet & provide quick access to the beach, adult pool & Sala Garden Massage facility."
"Pay the extra for a pool access room, especially if you have young kids who are confident swimmers"
US$ 95 - US$ 325 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
