most secluded beach resort in khao lak


I am planning my honeymoon to Khao Lak in Jan 2012, can someone advise the most private resort / beach?

I would prefer this seclusion seeing as it is my honeymoon, and at night we can then venture into town (is it khao lak town or takua pa? so confused :) )

First, welcome to the Khao Lak Forum, the forum for all things Khao Lak. The Takua Pa Forum was a temporary aberration by TA that only served to confuse new Members and annoy existing ones.

Secondly, congratulations on your forthcoming honeymoon and for choosing a wonderful place to enjoy it. I hope the Forum members will be able to help you plan your holiday and choose accommodation that meets your wishes.

Khao lak has over 25km of beaches, some with accommodatioin on or near them, others in more secludrd areas but none of them ever give the appearance of being crowded, even when it is Peak Season, such as January, which is one of the best months for weather.

Favourite resorts for honeymoons are:

* the 5* Sarojin - voted the Best Resort In Thailand 2010 it is located on Pak Weeb Beach which is generally regarded as the most beaitiful in Khao Lak. Although the resort itself is private, it is adjacent on one side to the Kantary Beach Resort, popular with families, and on the other to the very popular with day trippers White Sand Beach.

* the 5* Le Meridien - also on Pak Weeb Beach but around the cove further north and on proably the best stretch. Some people mistakenly believe this to be a private beach as it gives that impression but all beaches in Khao Lak, indeed Thailand, are public beaches, just some are more public than others and vice-versa. A large hotel blessed with lots cof accommodation types to choose from and excellent facilities.

Both these resorts are about 20 minutes from Bang La On, the main township of Khao Lak by shuttle or taxi.

* the 5* J W Marriott - located on the long and beautiful Khuk Khak Beach, this realtive newcomer to KL's top end resorts, there are no other resorts in the immediate vicinity but there are a handful of beach restaurants nearby.

About 15 minutes to Bang La On

* the 4* Paradise Resort - located on Sunset Beach with just a few other resorts and 10 minutes by taxi into Bang La On, this smaller boutique resort has accommodation nestling among the foliage on the hillside or at beach level. Very popular and, indeed, already may be fully booked for January.

I hope this helps.

Hi Arandora,

Sorry to barge in, but Thanks for the beautiful photos of Pak Weeb Beach! I've been googling photos of this beach for a couple of days now but I'm not sure if all the google images are accurate. That beach looks so absolutely gorgeous!! The colour of the water is just incredible! Two more weeks until we check into the Kantary so your photos are making the days just a little bit quicker!

Having had a look at the images there are certainly ones other than of Pak Weeb, indeed there are some that aren't even of Khao Lak, of Krabi for instance.

However, it won't be long now before you are sampling the true delights yourself. :-)

Haadson Resort is well out of the way. Although not a 5 star it is probably the most private of them all. But it may not be ideal as it is quite far from anything, including the town's restaurants, bars, etc.
