Area around The Haven Hotel

We have a provisional booking at the yet to open Haven Hotel in April. Last year we stayed at the Mai resort and really enjoyed the beach restaurants. What we'd like to know : are there beach restaurants near the Haven ? how does the beach compare to the one at The Mai?. How quick is it to get to the Restaurants in the small towns?

There are no beach restaurants near the Haven, indeed there are no beach restaurants that were directly on the beach, including near the Mai on any of Khao Lak's beaches since the National Council for Peace and Order set up by the Military Government issued orders for all trading on beaches throughout Thailand to stop and all structures to be removed as it has always been illegal but never enforced.

Subject to what might happen between now and next April when restaurants may relocate on to private land adjacent to any beaches, the nearest restaurants currently to the Haven are to the left across the creek on to Bang Niang Beach where there are restaurants overlooking the beach and to the right, the beach facing Bistro restaurant of the Orchid Beach Resort then a bit further down on the same side of the beach road the Lay restaurant which used to be on the beach near the creek, then the restaurant of the Blue Lagoon Resort. Further down in Khuk Khak Village, probably 30 minute walk at least along the beach road is the excellent Sun Ray Restaurant.

Khuk Khak Beach is a long relatively unspoiled and beautiful beach with only 5 resorts (The Haven, Orchid Beach, Andamania, Blue Lagoon and JWM) along its length. If you walk the beach to the right to the JWM (about 45 minutes) there are or there will be when they have finished relocating several restaurants just past the JWM.

From the Haven to Bang Niang by shuttle or taxi will be about 15 minutes and 20 minutes to Bang Lao On.
