About the location

Khao Lak, overlooking the Andaman Sea, is a village blessed with a long strip of pristine beach along the west coast of southern Thailand. It’s well established as a top beachside destination, while retaining its charm as a quiet fishing village. Guests looking to immerse themselves in the natural surroundings will love hiking and exploring the lush rainforests of the region, while Khao Lak’s dramatic cliffs and waterfalls never fail to impress.

The beaches are equally impressive, featuring long sandy stretches and sparkling clear waters, inviting visitors to dive in. There are many reefs and islands to be explored, and the region is renowned for its well preserved corals and dive sites. Snorkelers and divers shouldn’t miss Surin Island’s Marine Park or Kha Na Yak reef.
