Hot Spring Resort Khao Lak

Hot Spring Resort Khao Lak


We are first timers to this area and to Thailand !

Any one stayed at the Hot Springs Resort?I have read that it is quite remote with not a lot nearby, suits us as we are travelling with a 6 month old baby, but we would like some other company. Does anyone know of places nearby, how far to Khao Lak town, would it be better to hire a car, if so do you recommend any particluar hire company.

We would love to do a boat trip to some of the island PhiPhi perhaps, can anyone recommend a company to use and would young babies be allowed on board?

Sorry for all the questions but we want to be as prepared as possibe, with a baby in toe we need to be more organised these days

Thanks in advance and look forward to hearing from you

The Hot Springs Resort is located about half way between Phuket and Khao Lak.

I have yet to visit this specific area, but you will find more information here-

The Hotsprings Resort is a bit unique in the area. It is built around mineral springs and the very large pools are very where and filled with the mineral water.

The resort itself is a bit out of the way - but in a lovely area. I would recommend renting a car, just so you can get out and explore a bit - up to Thai Muang and Khao Lak area - and at least the northern part of Phuket.

You are not more than about 15-18 minutes from the bridge that goes over to Phuket - and most Phi Phi tours (if not all) will leave from the Chalong Pier on (southeastern) Phuket - so you will need that rental car - or to arrange for transfer.

There is a ferry over to Phi Phi - details are at:


Or, of course, you can rent your own boat.

Most of the trips to Phi Phi are by fast speedboat i dont think i would want to take a small baby in a bumpy speedboat if the sea is rough the crossing can be very bumpy indeed.
