Resort Summary

Laid-back and peaceful, the beach resort of Khao Lak lies 95 kilometres north of bustling Phuket City on the west coast of mainland Thailand. Holidays to Khao Lak offer traditional Thai charm coupled with spectacular untouched nature and idyllic beaches.

A lot of effort has been put into retaining the area’s natural beauty, including the prohibition of any buildings taller than a coconut palm, so resort hotels and local businesses often blend quite seamlessly into the existing landscape.
