Accommodation suggestion

i all,

Wanted to ask the experts here for advice on accommodation in khao lak. My wife and I along with our 3yr old and 1yr old children are spending 7 nights there at the end of March, early April. We would like to stay at a hotel that meets the following criteria (in no particular order of importance):

1) budget USD 550

2) beach - direct access, clean, quiet, swimmable (assuming they are all gorgeous)

3) good food choices in hotel or nearby

4) high quality of service and room. we want to be pampered 😉

5) play area appropriate for 3yr old in hotel would be a plus but not essential

Thanks in advance for your advice.

Use Booking.com gfir your dates and budget and in particle for "high end" family resorts look at the 5* Pullman Katilya Resort, 4* Mai Khao Lak Resort, 5* J W Marriott Resort, 4* Sands Resort, 4* Laguna Resort, 4* Centara Seaview Resort then come back for further information on any.

Thanks for the suggestions Arandora. And also for the host of other info you have collected and shared regarding Khao Lak.

With regards to the Pullman resort, do you have any info on the prestige pool suites? Location within the hotel good or bad? Better choices? Also, read someone statements on the reviews that the beach was not really swimmable (rough and jelly fish)....

Was curious why you have no included Apsara and Moacea in your list? Just going by the rankings in tripadvisor....

Thanks again.

The Pullman is basically in three parts. The original Le Meridien which was where we fell in love with Khao Lak, then the Rstige Suites which were originally luxury villas and suites built for sale but because of high sale prices were added to the ale Meridien when it was managed by Starwood. Then when Pullman (part of Accor Group) took over the brand new Katilya All Pool Villas were added to the resort to make it what I believe is the best 5* beach resort in Khao Lak.

I find it surprising for anyone to say that the ocean there is not swimmable. It is located on one of the best parts of the best beach in location, in a sheltered bay, with clearly marked and life guarded swimming areas. Jelly fish are quite common all along thevAndaman Coast at times and the resort posts notices about their presence on a daily basis.

The Apsara is in a more secluded position with less dining options and the Moracea although a fine resort is not IMO as child friendly as other resorts.

Hi

Just a note re the Laguna. Unless changes have been made since we were there 2 years, there are no guest lifts at the hotel. The accommodation blocks and access to the dining areas are up steps. There are some ramps - but if this hotel is a serious contender (we really enjoyed it here!) then perhaps check if you/ your children are still heavily reliant on buggies.
