JW Marriott Khao Lak - balcony rooms

We have requested a balcony room for our stay rather than pool access. I see on the photos that not all balcony rooms have the extended seat which I really love the look of. Does anyone know how I can guarantee we get one?

The majority of rooms have balconies with the extended seat so you should have no problems getting one. Contact the resort and request one. They will not guarantee it though. It will, as usual with most hotel reservations, be subject to availability. I did this to get a pool access room in a particular block and my request was noted and honoured on arrival. You may wish to consider at the same time requesting which Block and whether facing south to get sun virtually all day (but very hot at its peak) or north to get shade. None of the rooms are direct sea facing. This site map may help www.walagata.com/view.php?file=JWM_Map.jpeg

Many thanks. We have already requested block 1 from memory - is that OK? Wanted it away from kids. We are there end September after going to Singapore GP. So I guess I should just add the request the balcony seat also - do you agree? I appreciate your help here. Thanks.

Block I is furthest away from family area and I would request balcony seat but I'm pretty sure thyey all have them in that block. It was the original block and the balcony seats were one of the special features of the resort.

We noted in our recent stay that the balcony seats are slowly being removed and replaced with standard balustrades. It would appear that the weather is not all that kind to the wood, given that they are largely unprotected. We watched three being removed during our stay (Block 3). Notwithstanding, there are still plenty of balconies around with them so make sure you reinforce your request for a room with one.

Have a great stay, awesome hotel!

I've just booked 2 weeks at the Marriott for mid-November and will be taking my mother (60 but very able-bodied). Could anyone please suggest which block would be the best for us, ideally, it would be away from busy, families and nearer to the beach?

Any of your recommendations would be gratefully appreciated

Family accommodation is top half of Blocks 3 and 4, so best accommodation in your circumstances to meet your preferences would be bottom half of Blocks 1 & 3 which face south, so get sun all day and bottom of Blocks 2 & 4 which face north and get shade and so are cooler.
