Luxury hotels in Khao Lak
Le Meridien Khoa Lak is a true slice of paradise. Flanked on one side by the inviting blue waters of the Andaman Sea, and on the other by miles of lush, tropical forests, this five star hotel is the last word in beachside luxury.
The seven miles of golden sands means you can pick your own private spot on the beach. Take a gentle stroll by the ocean before dinner or get up early to watch the sun rise in spectacular fashion.
A stay at Le Meridien is all about relaxation. The rooms have a soothing, contemporary Thai feel, with neutral colours and clean lines to promote a sense of serenity and well-being. The hotel offers direct access to the beach and a wide range of amenities including private gardens, spa facilities, swimming pool, gym, golf and a children's club. Relax with a cocktail and something to eat at the Baan Thai Restaurant.
A favourite with honeymooning couples, the Ramada in Khao Lak is fringed by pristine beaches offering a stunning view of a group of small islands dotted off the coast. Backed by lush tropical vegetation, the hotel offers a quiet sanctuary for all who stay there. Choose from comfortable modern rooms or private villas with their own pool and combine personal relaxation with a programme of revitalising spa treatments.
The resort boasts five star leisure and fitness facilities as well as two restaurants, a cafe and a pool bar. For something extra special book a private dinner on the beach and watch the sun go down over a glass of champagne. The Ramada is a one hour drive from Phuket International Airport.
Designed to recreate the experience of staying at a private resort, the Sarojin is a temple of exclusivity, privacy and five star luxury.
