Khao Lak Forest resort

Does anyone know what the above hotel is like? We are thinking of booking as it looks good value for money. I’m assuming its cheap due to the distance from the beach (apparently 1 mile). We don’t mind the walk if it really is a mile but if its further away than this we would probably reconsider. Also would it be a similar distance and therefore walking distance to the bars/ restaurants of Bang Niang? Our other option is the Ramada, though its 3 times the price.

Hi Luke

Welcome to the forum. The Forest Resort is a new resort only completed and opened last High Season. Initially its main customers seemed to be Thai but it is now being advertised more widely so will probably attract more overseas visitors. Although the forest is behind it, it lies just back from the highway just outside Bang Niang and within easy walking distance, about 10 minutes or so, from the bars and restaurants there. It's about 1.5km to the beach near the Ramada so just about 1 mile. See Google map of route at https://www.google.co.uk/maps/dir/8.6652251,98.2447026/Khaolak+Forest+Resort,+Khuekkhak,+Takua+Pa+District,+Phang-nga+82190/@8.66799,98.2466237,16z/data=!4m9!4m8!1m0!1m5!1m1!1s0x3050e93b4aa05627:0x2e6a8d26d697e163!2m2!1d98.2538423!2d8.673873!3e2?hl=en-GB

The Forest has an excellent Coffee Bar and Café as well as Thai Restaurant with huge selection of inexpensive Thai food at the entrance on the highway. The ground floor pool access rooms looked particularly good from our brief visit.

Luke,

We went for a walk through this resort and had a look at the rooms in August.

Rooms are your standard size, but being new, very clean and modern. The pool struck us as a little shallow and if you had a pool access room, other guest will be on sun loungers opposite your room.

A fantastic local thai restaurant on the road at the front of this resort. Very good quality food at local thai prices.

Hope that helps.
