Magical place to be
"This is an amazing resort, situated on a beautiful beach with waving. Families are booked in a separate are with full children's facilities so that people without children can enjoy a quiet relaixing time if they so wish. Waving palm trees. comprises huge swimming pools with pooll bars, all lit up at night time. Rooms have huge TV screens and the most comfortable beds. Altogether a most wonderful place to stay and I would recommend anyone to stay there. nearby shopping markets and elephant rides are all nearby."

Excellent services and facilities
"We stayed at the hotel for 3 days and be appreciated of good hospitality in serving during our vacation. Hotel staffs keen to help us and recognise our favourite drinks.
Although, a short time but it was a really wonderful trip there. The room is very nice, clean and modern as well as pool is very fantastic to swim with bare eyes. If I'm not wrong the total length of the pool is around 2~3 kilometres.
We are enjoy all the time at there"

This place is great now and will be unbeatable when fully open
"We stayed for a week with our 18 month old boy. THe staff were very friendly and the food was great. A couple of resteraunts aren't open yet but will be in a couple of months. We really enjoyed the day trips they organised.
The guys and girls of Cher Fah went out of their way to make our stay special whether it was a reliable babysitter, a great (healthy) kids menu or romantic dinners on the beach (while boy was asleep/babysat). All for some seriously good prices while still in the soft opening period.
The whole resort is new and the rooms a very good. Bed is one of the comfiest I've ever been in.
We would recommend this place to anyone travelling with young kids"

Fantastic beach, super facilities and service -- even though in soft-opening period
"Our children (5 and 9) 'voted' Cher Fah the "best hotel in Thailand" so that is why we decided to stay again at end-June after our first visit early-May. Located right at one of the most beautiful beaches of Thailand, Cher Fah is a perfect holiday resort. The super-comfortable rooms (with connecting door to the children's room), complementary internet in your room, the huge swimming pool(s), the spacious kids club, the fitness and great food: all world-class. The hotel is still in soft-opening phase so additional facilities (eg squash court, late check-out lounge, additional restaurants) have not been opened yet. But we have promised ourselves to come back and check these out as well ! Hotel staff and management really went out of their way to make our stay(s) unforgettable. Khao Lak might put off some people as it is "too far away", but in fact it takes only 1,5 hour from the airport (whereas it takes minimum 45 minutes from the airport to reach other hotels on Phuket). All-in-all, a great choice."

Luxury = Cher Fah. A true diamond on earth.
"From the moment you arrive, there is a sense of something uniquely special. A friendly Thai greeting awaited us as the car pulled up on the driveway. Enter the lobby and you know that you are in for a luxurious stay. The view from the lobby is special - overlooking the large pool and ocean. The friendly staff escort you to the room and porters arrive with luggage shortly after. The room is amazing, elegantly furnished to a rating greater than 5-star. The pool access from the balcony was superb.
The dining was great for breakfast, lunch and dinner (perfect ocean views). The large pool was excellent. The private beachfront location has to be one of the best on earth.
From the moment we arrived, to the moment we left, there were only smiles. This resort will be hard to beat. It has to be one of the best on earth and definitely the best in Asia. Don't even consider the crowded beaches of Phuket or noisy streets of Patong, take the trip north to Khao Lak and stay for an unforgettable experience at Cher Fah.
Everything you could ever want from a luxurious Thai holiday is right here - take no other option!
Cher Fah - thank you for a wonderful stay, we will be back."

The perfect and ideal location to relax, unwind and to escape reality.
"The resort was amazing and very memorable, and was the perfect location for me to propose to my girlfriend. It was very romantic, proposing to her during a secluded candle lit dinner on the resort's own private beach, which was totally organised and taken care of by the very trustworthy and reliable employees of the resort. They also played the perfect role on the night to ensure it was a moment in time which could never be forgotten and or replaced.
To cap off the memorable evening, we made a special wish whilst letting go of a flaming lantern - to bring us good luck. Very special and a moment I will always remember and cherish. The other parts of our stay at the resort were fantastic. All resort facilities were A1, especially the room; which was very hard to leave, the huge and private swimming pool, pool bar and the amazing gym and tennis court.
All the staff were fantastic and made us feel like real VIPâs; they were all very warn, sincere and genuine and couldnât do enough for us.
Also it was the first resort I had stayed at which had its own ATM machine - which did come in handy. We will be coming back for our honeymoon!"

High quality resort with beach & waterways
"We stayed at Cher Fah during the 'soft opening' period. Though not all facilities were available at that time, the quality of the rooms and all fittings are to a very high standard. Staff were very friendly and happy to engage in comversation. My family are keen swimmers so it was great to have the full length pool plus the network of 'waterways' running through the resort. It is also easy to take day trips from the resort including to some of the country's best snorkelling locations. The beach setting is wide and open. I'm sure that this will become a very attractive destination."
