We have just reurned from another visit to the Khaolak Bhandari, well technically the Khaolak Oriental as we stayed in this part of the complex this time. 'Same same but different' More modern rooms of a more Hotel style than the bugalows. Very nice room, nice balcony overlooking one of the two pools in this section. The hotel is suffering through a lack of people visiting Phang Nga, some new staff as with all the hotels we visited recently but the biggest diifference is their attitude. All credit to whovever is in charge of staff selection and training. Without exception the staff here are wonderful. Genuine and helpful, no crocodile smiles. The hotel was in the process of waking up after a long, long hibernation but nothing intefered with our stay. The breakfast was still a good buffet, plenty of choice and great coffee. The Asian choice was particularly good, a very tasty Panang curry one day, an equally good Massaman the next. Noodles, rice dished and stir-fry vegetables. all good. As most of the nearby village is still closed, opening up more and more each day but still quiet, we ate at the hotel most evenings. Very good food, not too expensive for the quality of food. Asked for spicy and got spicy, the wife is Thai and I have learned ! Average spend with a few cocktail and/or beers was £25, very, very reasonable for two people. It was a shame that there was no real atmoshere in either the resturant or the Bar due to the lack of customers but this is not the hotels fault. Closing early was not really a problem for us, earlier morning strolls on the beach and earlier to retire. The internet is fair bit the choice of TV is fairly limited so if you can take a lap top with Netflix or similar as you will have some down time until things get back to normal. If you can put up with the rigmarole of the Thai Pass, the Covid tests and are not looking for a hedonistic time then this is a good time to visit the beautiful Phang Nga area. Get out of run down Phuket and head north. If you choose the Khaolak Bandari or Oriental resort I can guarantee a peaceful and freindly visit. My utmost thanks to all the staff. We will return.

Stayed here for 9 nights and was very impressed with the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. The buildings themselves could do with some cleaning and repair, the roofs and floors could do with a good power wash to remove the moss and growth. They did actually start to power wash the floor the day before we left. The rooms are quite dark and the lights in the bathroom and around the wardrobe could be improved. All this said the breakfast and restaurant food was very good although everything closed very early but this was due to the low number of guests.

เป็นอีกทริปที่ประทับใจมากๆ ตั้งแต่ทำการจอง คือ reservation ตอบคำถามไวมาก พร้อมดูแลสอบถาม ความต้องการเพิ่มเติมอย่างใส่ใจ พอไปถึงก็ได้รับการต้อนรับตอนเช็คอินเป็นอย่างดี หลังจากเชคอินเข้าห้องไปก็มี Fruit plate มาเสิร์ฟให้เป็นการwelcome ในส่วนของห้องพัก เราเลือกพักเป็น Thai style Bungalow ห้องกว้างและสะอาดมากๆ พร้อมทั้งยังมี Bathtub ด้านนอกให้ด้วย ในส่วนของโรงแรมแม้จะเปิดบริการมานานแต่สิ่งที่อยากชื่นชมคือห้องไม่เก่าเลย แอร์เย็นฉ่ำ หมอนนุ่มมาก ช่วงค่ำได้มีโอกาสลองทานข้าวที่ห้องอาหารของโรงแรม รสชาติอาหารคืออร่อย ราคาสมเหตุสมผล แนะนำเมนู มัสมั่นเนื้อ,ใบเหรียงผัดไข่,ยำกุ้งตะไคร้,Spaghetti Bolognese ในส่วนของอาหารเช้า ช่วงที่เราเข้าพักเป็นแบบ set ให้เลือก แนะนำข้าวต้มกุ้งอร่อยมาก แถมให้กุ้งตัวโต สายเฮลตี้ก็มีสลัดอกไก่ที่อยากแนะนำ โดยรวมคือประทับใจทุกๆอย่าง อาหาร,บรรยากาศภายในโรงแรมที่เงียบสงบ และการบริการของพนักงาน ยกให้ที่นี่เป็นอีกหนึ่งโรงแรมที่น่าพักของเขาหลักเลยค่ะ

Wonderful experience! We stayed here for 2 weeks during the Covid-19 crisis and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff were warm and welcoming, flexible and helpful. Room and resort were cleaned daily, facilities were top notch. We used the pools, gym, restaurants, all were fantastic. The staff helped arrange transport when we needed it at a reasonable price. The breakfasts were HUGE and delicious. We even made a little crow friend (not advisable during peak season). Highly recommend based on our experience.

This resort is rated 4.5/5 by the TA community, and I cannot understand why. I usually don't write bad reviews, but in the case of this resort, I feel like I didn't get what I paid for (and eventually shortened my stay). Pros: - The hotel staff is kind and nice. - The hotel surroundings are beautiful, with tropical vegetation and Thai-style statues. Now, to the main issue which is the room. First, it was old, with an old TV (10-15 years) that had almost no reception and limited selection of channels. Also, there are too many lamps in the room, and one of them had what looked like a spider web on it. Another lamp couldn't be switched off, so I had to "sleep" with its light shining on me. The bathroom was dark, and the shower was tiny and looked dirty and moldy. The shower-head was probably broken, which can explain why the water barely came out. That was a shower you'd find at a 5$ backpackers' hostel. The aircon was noisy and old as well, without a remote controller, just an old box with a cheap plastic switch. It certainly hasn't been replaced for 15+ years. On top of all these issues (and what really made me leave early during the first night), the room smelt VERY bad. It was literally hard to breath in there, so I had to go out to the balcony to breath fresh air. It could be mold, could be cigarettes, but something must be done with this smell. It is certainly not healthy. Not related directly to the hotel, the beach is just OK. A bit dirty, quite rocky, and there is black sand in some parts of it. Black sand usually characterizes volcanic islands, and as far as I know, Khao Lak has no volcanoes nearby, so who knows what this black sand really is. Overall, this is not a 4* resort (barely 3*) as advertised, and if the management wants it to become one, the rooms must be COMPLETELY overhauled. I'm very disappointed wasting my money on a place I couldn't stay at, as my well-being is more important after all.

Dear Chen S , We’re very sorry to hear that you had a disappointed experiences. It’s our goal to deliver the highest quality of service to all of our customers .First, we are try to keep our property refresh and renovating and maintaining as much as we can. For the smell since covid-19 our property is very concern with hygiene standard so We install ozone air purifer in each room to make sure our room is clean so that must be the smell you would not like. However, We have discussed in Management meeting to what to improve from your comments and We will find a solution to make our guest comfort as much as we can.Second, For the black sand beach, It's actually from a tin miles we used to have in the past. Please kindly accept my sincere apologize and We will try our best to improve our property. Sincerely, Assistant Managing Director
