Khao Lak Orchid Beach Resort?

Hello

My partner and I will hopfeully be staying in this resort as have a good offer, has anyone been to this place before?

Any comments?

Also, anticipating staying for 14nights in December - is it easy to travel to Phuket or any other surrounding areas? And will 2 weeks in the hotel be too long, or not?

Help much apreciated!

Thanks x

Hi Abbie,

The Orchid is an excellent value for money resort located direct beachfront on the lovely Khuk Khak Beach. Although in a secuded spot there are some beach restaurants in either direction if you don't mind a walk. The resort also offers a free shuttle into Bang La On, the main township where there are lots of restaurants bars and shops and will drop you off in Bang Naing, the second largest which is just 5 minutes before Bang La On. If you stay later than return of shuttle taxis back are about 300 baht from Bang Niang and not much more from Bang La On. Here are rates of taxis from Bang Niang to give you an idea of cost of getting out and about www.walagata.com/w/arandora/Taxi_Rates.jpg

Phuket Airport is about 70 minutes away but if you want to for a day's shopping in Patong or roundabouts that is about 2 hours. Boss of Cheaper than Hotel Taxis does both airport transfers and a Phuket shopping trip as well as other local tours. Contact him on cheaper_khaolak@ymail.com

Will 2 weeks be too long? Being someone who stays for 5 months every year, I think my answer is fairly obvious! :-)

This is a link to our album of pics in March 2011 when we spent our 42rd Anniversary at the Orchid in a fabulous Jacuzzi Room. The weather then wasn't too kind but our stay at the Orchid was super nevertheless https:/…

These are pics of Khuk Khak Beach from early this year with those from 11 - 23 being the stretch nearest the Orchid https:/… and some more from previous year at https:/…

Hi Abbie...

Stayed at the Orchid for 5 days with my wife a couple of years back and really loved it. It is a very nice resort indeed. Lovely pool and pool area, lovely grassed areas with gardens and set on a most spectacular beachfront. The hotel has very nice spacious rooms with great balconies overlooking the pool and beach. Lovely buffet breakfasts and a nice restaurant ( thai/seafood ) in the premises.

You can walk along the beautiful beach either way and find lovely little restaurants right on the water.

A shuttle is provided by the hotel that goes every hour to town and picks you up in the evenings. Don't hesitate, Highly recommended. PS. Abbie if you would like to PM me with your email address I will send you some photos around the resort.... Cheers Bob & Chris.
