Sun, Sand and Relaxation

Last December I was lucky enough to spend a couple of nights at the stunning 4-star, Adult only Beyond Resort in Khao Lak with my fiancé.

Once we got to the resort we were just absolutely blown away, the reception area was beautiful! After a 1.5 hour journey from Phuket Airport it was lovely to have warm welcome from the staff and a nice cool, refreshing drink!

We were then escorted to our room which was a Palm Villa; again, we were blown away! The room was huge; big high ceiling, living area and spacious bathroom. I really wasn’t expecting so much, all in all – a great start!

Walking around the grounds of the hotel, everything was so pretty. There is a lovely river that runs through the middle of the grounds, leading to the front where the main facilities are and the beach. I must say, the location of the hotel is a big seller! The beach is beautiful, miles of soft sand. It was also nice and quiet which makes a change from the busier beaches of neighbouring resorts in Phuket and the sea was great for swimming!

Whilst having a stroll along the beach, we came across a few local Thai restaurants, which we went back to in the evening. Personally, I would recommend Boom Boom, restaurant & bar, you can’t miss it – lots of pretty lights draping from the trees, time it right and you’ll get a great sunset view over the ocean too. I had the fresh tiger prawns and they were delicious!

There are lots of restaurant choices at the hotel though, so you wouldn’t even need to leave the confines of the resort if you didn’t want to. We had a private romantic dinner on the beach to celebrate our anniversary, this was a 3-course set menu and was faultless! So was the pizza we had at lunch. There’s lots of choice from traditional Thai menus to something more western.

If you’re looking for somewhere relaxing, this is definitely the place! I loved nothing more than grabbing a sun bed and getting my book out! The pool area is stunning, lots of palm trees and a great view of the Andaman Sea. I also enjoyed swimming up to the bar and getting a cocktail or too, with two happy hours a day, why not!

One thing I ran out of time for was the spa, which I’m gutted about because it looks beautiful and the reviews are excellent! However, I still had a super relaxing time and there are lots of Jacuzzi sections in the pool so had a little bit of a spa experience there!

I’d definitely go back in a heartbeat!
