Top Tips from our Experts

Karen

Destination Executive

"My favourite place to spend an afternoon in Khao Lak is Memories Bar. It’s located just next to Apsara, and is open between September – April. It’s a lively spot with great food and lots of leisure activities such as volleyball, surfing – even Thai cooking classes. After the sun goes down, dancing and fire shows on the beach commence. Great fun – and all ages welcome."

Beautiful location and wonderful staff

Coventry, United Kingdom

Arrived to a very friendly and speedy checkin, room was upgraded to one with a balcony overlooking the pool. Room was large, clean with air con and a beautiful view over the pool and beach. If you have been to some of the big all inclusive resorts you will find this a bit different, a much smaller choice of food in the buffet but there was always something we liked it was all really good, the staff are really helpful and friendly. The resort is smaller than ones we have previously been to but that is not a bad thing, always plenty of sun loungers and parasols available, all areas are kept clean and tidy but watch out for the afternoon wind, if you don’t get the umbrellas down quick enough they can take off rather rapidly. The evening entertainment is a little different but you can always head to the beach bar. Although a little odd, there is a separate all inclusive bar, you cannot get drinks elsewhere without paying. We did not have an issue with this, the resort is not that big and it is a very short walk to it. Overall this was a lovely holiday, if you prefer a quieter, more relaxed holiday you will enjoy this resort. We went out of season so there was not much to do on the resort but we went out on trips with Khao Lak Explorers cannot recommend these highly enough, we booked before we arrived and were not disappointed. Good transport, great guides and a great way to see this amazing country. By the Wray, the massage huts by the pool, well worth a visit, amazing value for money and one of the best massages I’ve had. Bad points, not really any, the hallways can be a little dark in the day and if you take a walk further down the beach away from the part the resort looks after, there was a lot of rubbish but the resort keeps the part b6 the hotel lovely and clean.

Great holiday!

London, United Kingdom

A few days ago, we came back from the Apsara Beachfront resort. It was our first stay in Thailand. I must say that I am enchanted with the country and I consider the 2 week stay in a hotel to be a great stay. The hotel is large, in my opinion very well maintained, a lot of greenery. A clean outdoor pool, A lot of sunbeds, usually up to 11am are free, then sometimes there was a problem with that. A wide, fantastic beach next to it, white sand and shallow water. You can walk for hours on the seafront, the beach takes many kilometers. We had all inclusive options - 2 bars next to the beach. Promo bar very near the beach, very good drinks, next to comfortable sofas and armchairs where you can protect yourself from the sun or rain. The only thing we missed was a smoothie made of fresh fruit! (without the addition of sweet syrups)! Super meals, lunch and dinner - a lot of fish, seafood, various kinds of meat, soup, vegetables, fruit, desserts.Thai food, a point with fried fish in butter, fried bananas, fried vegetables, shrimps, chicken nuggets etc All fresh, imaginatively arranged, tasty dishes. I think that the chef is fantastic, we have tasted everything for us. 2 weeks we were slightly bored with food, because the menu was repeated every few days but everyone will find something for themselves. Staff nice, helpful, girls smiling :) Breakfasts - large variety of meals, stir fry, english breakfast, cereals, fruits, yoghurts, breads, muffins, jams, honey, waffles, etc. Coffee, tea was brought and refilled by waitresses. I would suggest another solution, a jugs, or coffee / tea in a large thermos because some like me, drink more than one cup, and sometimes ladies were busy on the other side of the breakfast room and you had to wait. A small selection of teas (black and green). Limited number of napkins - you had to ask for extra. Besides, everything is ok As for the names of the staff - Ao, Amal, Mike and most of the ladies and bartenders whose names we unfortunately do not remember, thank you! Hotel guests have a diverse nationality mix, some are gloomy and not able to say "good morning" or smile ;-), but of course there is nothing to do with the hotel. Gym quite okay, we used every morning. What you need - is, though a little too little space. In the spa zone, showers. Rooms cleaned daily, clean and thorough- thank you :-) Every day 2 bottles of mineral water in the room, a little too little for the prevailing heat, it was not possible to get more for additional bottles at the bar. Evening entertainment in the hotel - not much, a bar and live music with great voices, we loved it! So if someone is looking for entertainment, noise and fun - then definitely choose another hotel and surroundings. Around, quiet, peaceful and relaxing. A large selection of excursions - we used the company Rak Talay - I recommend James Bond island trip - contains a lot of attractions during one trip. We are disappointed with TUi, because we hardly saw the host, no one was interested in us, whether we are satisfied and whether everything is ok..also we didn't know about any welcome meeting..previous trips were ok, always someone was who could have been turn back, but not this time. Generally - a fantastic place to relax I absolutely recommend it! It is possible that we will return soon to this hotel!
