Hotel Room Just beside the Beach

Hey guys, can you help me out?

My BF wants to stay really near the beach, a room just beside it.

I mean there must be a lot of room with seaview but how to find a room really next to the beach. That we can have a great sea view from our room.

I am travelling End of next month to Phuket so running out of time for hotel booking. Hope you guys could help me to recommend any hotel

By the way, our main purpose is to relax

Thanks

1. Re: Hotel Room Just beside the Beach

There are a number of resorts in the various beach locations on the Khao Lak coastline which have beachfront bungalows/rooms. This type of accommodation tends to be expensive and in some cases very expensive though. Have a look at the following site khaolak.de/khaolakbeach/eSunsetBeach.htm and go through each resort for a description then post back if any catch your eye.

In particular the following have rooms at or facing the beach:

* Sunset Beach - Khao Lak Paradise, Khao Lak Resort

* Nang Thong Beach - Laguna, Baan Khao lak, Nang Thong Bay Resort, Green Beach, Gerd & Noi, Andaman Beach Resort

* Bang Niang Beach - Ramada, Mukdara, Chong Fah, Sita Garden, Amanusa, Ayara Villas (not on this site)

* Pak Weeb Beach - Le Meridien

Plenty of choice but depends on your budget.

Hi,

We stayed at a beach villa at Baan Khao Lak, literally four steps and onto the beach.

There are some photos here:

Khao Lak is great for relaxing and Bang Niang is also a great beach for that purpose. Amanusa Resort is a good choice imo.

The rooms are not super expensive but still nice. It is a beach resort so the beach is just a few steps away(How many depends on sea level ;) )

Great restaurant at the beach so you can eat and look at the sunset too.

Thank you guys for your suggestion. After checking the price it was too much for our budget, and the bungalow was not a option for us.

So at the end we booked Merlin Khao Lak Hotel.

I am looking forward for the beach

Laksaqueen,

Ignore the previous post. All of his posts are advertising a website and he copies and pastes the information and not necessarily in context!

Arandora is the local expert and I am sure he will be able to offer re-assurance.

Laksaqueen,

Sarah is absoluely right about the previous poster who has been reported from another forum for self-promotion.

The beach (Khao Lak Beach or Khao Lak South Beach) and bay at the Merlin are beautiful. It is crecent shaped with only 4 resorts along a pretty promenade and with little further room for development. This are was badly affected by the Tsunami but has now come back very strongly and is now a very nice and desireable location indeed. More local restaurants and bars are opening all the time but it is, or was when we left in March, all low key and nicely done.

Dear Sarah & Arandora

Thank you guys for reassurance that Khao Lak Beach is going to be wonderful beach for wonderful vacation.

I was so shocked when I read the stupid guy's comment. He really should be kicked out from any forums.

I am really looking forward for this trip.

Cheers
