Rated 4 out of 5 by Groeneweg Great!
We enjoyed our stay very much. The villa is really luxurious. All staff are really friendly and are great with children, especially Golf.
Only one restaurant was open each evening, which reduced dining options.
Only issue is that the pools have many loose tiles, this should be fixed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DrPR Superb service
Superb service overall, especially from K. Ekkawi (Front Office Manager). He was very responsive to our e-mail questions months before our arrival. He also took great care of us once we arrived at LM Khao Lak. He ensured that we had a memorable wedding anniversary celebration. Thank you!
The room was great and the housekeeping staff did an excellent job to make sure that our Suite (#291) was always in top condition.
One minor issue: the limited snack for Platinum members ran out early at the Bamboo Bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lindsey14 Excellent Hotel Staff and Facilities
This is the second time my wife and I have been to this hotel and it is first class. Despite it being the quieter time of the year, the management, staff and facilities were excellent, nothing was too much trouble for the staff and they are all polite and courteous. The rooms, food quality and value were excellent
I will be returning to this hotel and would reccomend it without hesitation.

From the initial welcome to the "sad" farewell, all of the Staff we met could not have been more helpful, efficient, and friendly.
The setting of the hotel is really lovely and access to all the facilities is made so easy by the wonderful team of buggy drivers.
The standard and quality of catering is really high and the Baan Thai restaurant in particular set in a romantic area of the grounds is a must for any visitors. Thank you Montha and wonderful Staff for great memories.
We look forward to our next visit hopefully in March 2014.
Thank you all for making our holiday in November 2013 so perfect,
Charles and Grace.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DrPR Overall, great experience
Our second reservation this month was great as well. K. Ekkawi continued to take wonderful care of us with our room needs. He provided such great customer service that LM Khao Lak should have more associates like him. Thank you!
We also had a good experience at Baan Thai Restaurant. K. Napa and her staff (including Sa & Jeans) were great in helping us have an enjoyable breakfast experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Matt23 Great hotel.
Our first stay at Meridian, and also in Thailand. The hotel was beautiful and in a fairly remote location making the surrounding areas not too busy and the beach just amazing and light of people. The facilities were well spaced out so you never felt there were lots of people. Food in all restaurants was excellent. Lovely pools, good sunloungers, gardens, lighting at night, just all magical. Didn't rate Khao Lak itself, as as we were on bed and breakfast, visited on several occasions for dinner. Very poor facilities, ordinary food, but very reasonably priced, especially wine. The only criticism of the hotel was the price of wine. Nothing under £30, and a glass was over £8.

The Le Meridien Khoa Lak is nestled between the Phang Na Rain Forests and beautiful white beaches. It's quite a trek from the Phuket airport, but the serene and tranquil nature of the resort is worth the drive north. We stayed in one of the luxurious pool-side villas that offered an indoor and outdoor shower, private patio with an amazing view of the lake, and plenty of other amenities. The villa was amazing! The service was exceptional and second to none. The standard rooms are lovely, but a bit on the small side compared to other Phuket and Phang Na resorts.
The resort offers plenty of restaurant options, though you’ll have to figure out the schedule upon arrival – they’re not all open at the same time. The Twin Lake Pavilion serves bbq and Japanese cuisine. Surrounded by rain forest, the bugs were out in force here and the service was not as expected. The food, however, was very good. The Bamboo Bar and Seafood Grill was open daily for lunch and dinner. Beach front dining was such a treat and the food was exceptional. We ate lunch here most days, and went for seafood one night. No complaints at all – and it’s priced very well too. Baan Thai was very good Thai food and a great experience. A little pricier than the Bamboo Bar, but still a great dinner option. Baan Thai also served breakfast for villa guests & platinum members. It was a nice alternative to the huge breakfast buffet. Café Lilawadee serves a huge breakfast every morning. The buffet is quite amazing with an array of food and beverages that I’ve never seen before. They also serve the signature breakfast and “eye-openers” created by three-star Michelin chef, Jean-George. I fell in love with the Oatmeal Soufflé. The Bangsak Grill offers Italian food and is definitely worth a visit when you’ve overdosed on Thai. I discovered one of my favorite dishes of all time at the Bangsak and the Chef and General Manger were kind enough to provide me with the recipe and I make it now often.
The pools are exceptional and the beach can’t be beat. Cold towels and fresh fruit are served pool-side throughout the day. There are plenty of lounges and very attentive pool staff. There are many small vendors and restaurants along the beach offering local flair, food and hospitality.
The Spa is amazing and shouldn't be missed. There are outdoor massages on the beach and a huge spa in the center of the resort. Many specials are offered that made the spa very affordable. I highly recommend the Le Meridien Khoa Lak for a peaceful and restful vacation

As we traveled all over Asia we found many great hotels but none that were managed as well as this gem. Every detail was looked after by the General manager who was on top of everything. We plan on another trip back in July to stay at a pool villa as the place is paradise..
