“Haadson Resort Khao Lak”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2012

I cannot say enough about Haadson Resort. We are a 50 year old couple, we have been at the HaadsonResort for 9 days and this is our last night here. We are very sad to leave. We have been made to feel we are one of the many people who live and work on this plantation. At all times the people here have been extremely friendly and so accommodating, yet on a personal level. They were able to line us up with any tour we wanted taking care of all the details, provided us with a shuttle into Khao Lak township daily, and just made sure we did not want for anything. My husband celebrated his birthday here and was surprised with birthday cake after breakfast, and a bouquet of the wild tropical plants and flowers after lunch, all because Haadson resort noticed on his passport that he would be here for his birthday. Such a touching and personal attention not recieved anywhere else on our trip. The gardens and grounds have been fascinating as every two feet there is something going on with nature, don't walk quickly on these grounds, you will miss so much of nature at it's best! We have sat on our deck (which are all very private as natural growth is mature and hides each Villa well) and watched exotic birds and butterflies a few feet from us, found ant highways, Cicadas, Preying Mantis, Centipedes, all sorts of lizards and fascinating creatures we did not know existed before here. We found they all stayed in their own environment, not one was within our villa. They do caution you to leave the screen doors closed at all times though, best be heeding their advice:)
The breakfast buffet is the best offered during our trip, a great variety and different every day (the banana pancakes delicious and the bacon is out of this world).

All in all, I would not want to stay anywhere else when I return to Khao Lak.

Room Tip: We had a room overlooking the lake (called Lake Villa's). It not only had a fantastic view, but...

We could not fault the five nights we stayed here in January. The thatched cottage was really attractive and comfortable, the grounds beautiful. We enjoyed the food, at all meals and felt very at home because of the attitude of the friendly and helpful staff. There is a medium size infinity pool which was beautiful but we spent our time on the sandy beach, with glorious swimminig and long walks on almost deserted beaches, and also time reading on our balcony overlooking a small lake. . It is definitely away from it all but the hotel runs a mini bus service into Khao Lak town each day for those who want retail therapy. One of the best times was early evening, happy hour, with a glass of wine watching the sun go down usually only accompanied by a few other guests.

My two night, three day stay here was very enjoyable. The theme of the resort is 'green and simple'and they do well to live up to this. The resort really doesn't lack anything - it has a pleasant pool, and staff who are very enthusiastic to help and serve. The beach is just 50m away and the beds there are reserved for hotel guests only. (Being a Brit, my only gripe as always is the tendency of the Germans to ignore the signs and reserve beds with towels and then leave them. Some reserved a bed both at the pool and at the beach this way.) The menu is dual, being both Western and Thai and I ate only from the Thai menu. The food was plentiful and excellent. I needed a late check-out and the hotel accommodating me for only 500 baht, which I thought was very fair of them. I took the free shuttle into Khao Lak but that was a total waste of time as it's shops and stalls either side of a highway. There are tailors, dive shops, restaurants and stalls selling fake brands.

My husband and I went here on our honeymoon before moving onto Koh Samui for the second week. It was exactly what we wanted - plush surroundings with a beautiful beach, few people to contend with (unlike Samui), no pestering from people trying to sell things and isolation of the best kind. After a very very busy few weeks of getting ready for a wedding it was the perfect remedy.

The resort was wonderful - very comfortable room (though the beds were perhaps not designed for Westerners), the staff were incredibly friendly and informal enough not to feel stuffy and awkward. We stayed almost entirely within the resort or on the beach and for us that was plenty. Wonderfully far away enough from Khao Lak that we could get there if needed (the hotel do a shuttle bus every afternoon) but not dragged into the busyness and mild chaos against our will. The pool was lovely and beautifully shaded in the afternoon as the beach becomes less shaded.

We cannot recommend this place highly enough - we enjoyed the food, the atmosphere, the hospitality, the cookery lesson with their delightful staff and having the chance to do absolutely nothing. Bliss!

We decided to stay for 3 nights at Haadson after reading reviews on TripAdvisor.com and it was a great decision to stay at Haadson (thanks to my partner) for shortlisting Haadson. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Haadson. It's situated at amazing location, beautiful, calm, secluded beach and surrounded by amazing green forest inside and outside. We stayed at Coconut villa and its very beautiful and spacious and clean rooms and surroundings. The Bathroom is well lit and very clean. The bathroom decor was very appealing. The beach (bang sak) is beautiful. The Haadson resort is little far from Khao Lak town (13 km) so expect to pay 350 - 400 Bhat to Taxi at Khao Lak town to reach the Haadson. Good thing is on daily basis, the resort provides complimentary shuttle service to Khao Lak town at 2:00 pm returning at 4:30 pm. The entire staff was very very friendly and always smiling. "Lam" at reception and "Tek" at Terrace restaurant made our stay very comfortable. Since we are vegetarians, our food experience wasn't that great. I think food at Restaurant can do much better. No matter what don't order Pizza or Pasta at the restaurant. Its not worth it. Overall its a great place to relax and enjoy the nature.

Room Tip: We stayed at Coconut villa - Room 312 which was a great. We preferred 2nd floor over 1st Floor
