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. Take a stroll through the dense gardens and you’ll find rare flowers, including wild jungle orchids, thriving within the resort. This is thanks to its work with conservation charity Love Wildlife.
You’ll never be far from a pool at Khao Lak Merlin. Choose a room that opens out on to one of the quieter pools or spend time unwinding in the whirlpool pool, which offers a relaxing hydro-massage experience. Alternatively, head to the main pool, where you’ll find a man-made waterfall, waterslide and swim-up bar. Even if you’re not one for splashing around, you can enjoy relaxing poolside views from the Tropical Garden restaurant.
Khao Lak Merlin Resort puts the environment at the heart of all of its practices. The hotel has taken steps in every area, from special water conservation practices to single-use plastic reduction, to keep its local area as unspoilt as possible, so that future travelers and locals will be able to enjoy it for many years to come. What’s more, Khao Lak Merlin supports local suppliers whenever possible to boost the local economy.
