10 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
"We are a Swedish family who had booked for two nights but immediately upon arrival decided we wanted to stay longer. Not a place for party people but great for anyone who is looking for a relaxing vacation. The location on the "untouched" beach is fantastic. The hotel is spacious and clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. The size and interior of our room was well above average compared to the room standard at other hotels we stayed on in Patong and Cape Panwa. We also enjoyed the food in the hotel restaurant."

A lovely poolarea and beutiful garden with flowers all around. Very clean and luxerous. We can highly recommend this hotel for a perfect relaxing holiday.

We recommend !!!
"We just got back from a two week trip to Thailand and while there we stayed at what we think is a wonderful hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the rooms have everything you can ask for. Everything from the room,poolarea and faciities are very clean and enjoyable. I would recomend this hotel to everyone but especially to thoose who appriciates peace and quiet, and great overal service. The hotel is 5-10 minutes from Khao lak center but that was never a problem, the transportation to and from the hotel was outstanding. This hotel will absolutely be our first choice next time we go to Thailand.

"We,ve (my wife and 1,5 year old son) been driving around Thailand and were looking for a couple of days rest in a nice place. At first we only wanted to stay for 2 days but we stayed for 5 days because it was so beautiful. And besides the beauty it was a very relaxing place and the staff was so friendly. They were very nice and helpful. We didn't have to worry or think about a thing, they took care of everything. The staff was great with our son. The room was spacious and had a wonderful view on the pool, garden and andaman sea. Breakfast was great. Massage was good. Very good value for the price of the room. Need I say more? We,ve already decided to get back their again.

"I went to this wondeful hotel with my friends for christmas holiday last year. Never heard of it before but from what the agent said, what the hell let's do it.
Very lovely hotel on isolated beach. Basically, we have our own private beach all day long every day. We could do everything we want without worried that we will disturb someone. Wasn't that wonderful?. The food and service was quite good not bad at all. Room was very new, nice and quite spacious. I really love the bathroom, I could had a bath with window open and enjoyed the view. The Chritsmas party was a nice and lovely party, see the pictures. Because it was isolated so it's difficult to go around for sight seeing, shopping or night life. But we on holiday all we need was a nice quiet place to relax after whole year of working. Anyway, if you want there was a hotel shuttle that would take you to anywhere you want to. Finally and important thing, the price wan't bad compared to the others.
Give it a go and you will not be disappointed. Highly recommend for those who seek for nice quiet and not so expensive place for holiday."

"I have been to some beautiful places in this world but non as lovely as th e Khao Lak Orchid.Throughout our stay we were treated like kings and queens by the hotel staff.They made us feel so welcome.The hotel itself is magnificent, the food was excellent, the pool stunning and all this right on a huge expanse of magnificent beach.We will 100% be returning...but this time for longer.....thankyou so much."

"As a party of three we travelled to Khao Lak Orchid Hotel as part of a humanitarian holiday and we stayed there whilst helping out in the local childrens orphanage.The hotel we considered to be exceptional, the staff were incredibly courteous and we found their English to be quite good. Anything we couldn,t convey in words we did with gestures.
The hotel and the pool are very clean, the beach is so secluded its like a private beach, no clambering over other people to find a space. The trip to Khao Lak centre is admittedly interesting in the back of an open truck, but hey, this is Thailand and "When in Rome" so to speak.
In our stay we travelled to Phuket and Bangkok and stayed in a furthet two hotels, neither of which were a patch on the Khao Lak Orchid"
We are now planning our return to the hotel in haste, it made our holiday, we loved it and cant wait to return!"

enjoyed the stay so much
"our first intention was, to stay at a simple bungalow near the sea... then a travel agency recommend us the orchid beach resort for just 3 nights cause no other hotels in the area were available! first thought by checkin was, "oh my good... thats not what we expected!" way toooooo much... after the first day, everything goes fine. we feeled very well...
the hotel is a little bit outside from kao lak, but it doesn't matter. i think that's exactly what the strong ambience of the hotel is like.
away from the mass-tourism, but not isolated!
you need about 40min by a nice walk on the right side of beach to reach very good bars and restaurants directly on the sea (or 5-10min by car).
overall the hotel is not to big, not to small... you have a lot of space on the beach, really a lot of... i think we walked about 10km to the left and 10km to the right... nothing is similar like this! the khao lak orchid resort was the best accident we could get!!!
at the end we stayed our complet vacation here. everything was fine. the staff is always in a very very good mood!!!, the rooms are big with a lovely style, sanitary always superb clean, room-service is solid, food in the restaurant tastes good...
every question or problem we had, was solved with a perfect service in a few minutes by the friendly front desk staff!!!"

not bad but very isolated
"Nice looking beach front resort, very isolated (15 mn drive to khaolak center at 100 baht one way per person, Khaolak center is where you can find few restaurants and stores), abslolutly nothing around, you feel trapped. Because of the tsunami, lots of places were closed, the beach has been cleaned up but you can see the damage it caused. No installation on the beach and no shade (hard you have a kid), you better stay at the swimming pool which is nice enough but desappointing if you are beach people. The hotel is recent. Big, clean and well appointed family suite (2 bedrooms suite with terrace). Limited selection of dishes available at the restaurant and not that good, it could be because of the low season (only 2 or 3 rooms occupied) and the unhelpful waitress keep staring at you while eating. Breakfast is basic and could also be better. Poor english speaking."
