A beautiful area of Southern Thailand, Khao Lak is a popular holiday hotspot. And it’s not surprising, as there are lots of lovely places to stay in Khao Lak. Khao Lak Merlin Resort is popular with families and couples alike, while La Vela Khao Lak boasts a wonderful beach and spa. If you’re dreaming of a luxury retreat, though, take a look at The Sarojin Khao Lak – this five-star resort has just 56 exclusive residences. Or journey northeast to Khao Sok National Park, where you can enjoy a luxury stay in the jungle at Elephant Hills.

Elephant Hills’ luxury tents offer a front-row seat in the wild rainforests of Khao Sok National Park. Whether you stay deep in the jungle at the Elephant Camp, or opt for the floating Rainforest Camp on Cheow Lan Lake, you can expect comfortable beds and a modern bathroom as part of your ‘glamping’ set-up.
Khao Lak Merlin Resort calls itself a ‘jungle paradise’. It’s easy to see why, as trees line the paths and flowers wind their way between every building. During the resort’s construction, most of the site’s centuries-old trees were preserved and the area’s tropical eco-system was recreated across the hotel grounds using freshwater springs.
La Vela Khao Lak resort is located on the beautiful western coastline of Phuket, sandwiched between the calm Andaman Sea and the lush rainforests of Khao Lak-Lam Ru National Park. The golden sands of quiet Bang Niang Beach are just steps from the resort – so you can take in the picturesque sea view from the pool.
The Sarojin Khao Lak sits on an 11-kilometre strip of palm-lined sands that would rival the Caribbean’s most exclusive coastlines. The calm waters of the Andaman Sea are sheltered by nearby Pakarang Cape, so it’s the ideal spot for swimmers of any ability to take a relaxing dip.
