The view is breathtaking; the site glows with lanterns by night, reflecting in lagoons, pools, and the ocean waves; the ambience is intimate. You’re at Khao Lak Resort, Phang Nga, Thailand, intended to be “a new dimension in comfort and luxury while maintaining the original concept of a private holiday within a natural and peaceful environment” intended to be “paradise on earth.” The resort offers lots of choices: 14 deluxe beach front rooms and 2 pool suites; 26 sea view deluxe bungalows; 14 superior bungalows, situated slightly above the rest of the resort; and 39 superior rooms, located close to such facilities as the fitness room, Internet room, and convenience store. Along with pools and beaches, the resort offers several different restaurants with outstanding international and Thai cuisine.
You can savor fresh seafood from the resort demonstration kitchen, called the “Kumpun Boat,” or get refreshments at the Pool Bar and Sala — light cocktails and snacks, served right in the shade on the beach. Need to work off those calories? The game and fitness room offers snooker and workout equipment — or take advantage of such excursions as elephant treks, bamboo rafting, canoeing, diving, or exploration at Surin Islands National Park. Finally, if you need stress relief, the Baimai Spa awaits with a wide selection of massages, body wraps, and scrubs— with fresh flowers, essential oil burners, and herbal teas adding that extra dimension of comfort to your spa experience. Rejuvenation of body, mind, and spirit is the experience Khao Lak offers; immerse yourself in it and be renewed.
