This was our 3rd visit for 15 nights, and just as good as before. Hotel has built new family rooms and 2 new pools since last year, which looked great. Also another restaurant for breakfast and lunch, which also has a takeaway service. Everything in the rooms and hotel spotlessly clean and the gardens immaculate. Staff and management extremely helpful and friendly, nothing too much trouble. Saw many repeat guests. Alot of new restaurants in town, which were excellent. Thanks to all the staff, especially Kim and Proud. We are looking forward to returning next year.

My partner and I arrived at Khao Lak and immediately we were greeted with nothing but pure kindness and beautiful smiles and that continued throughout our entire stay I could not fault them once. We were definitely blown away at how big the place was and how well kept and maintained the resort grounds were kept at all times and how well appointed the gardens were as well with beautiful green grass as well- our room was beautiful as well as our daily buffet breakfast it was to die for! The massages on the beach were incredible as well as the onsite restaurants serving some amazing food! Unfortunately my partner and I found ourselves in trouble with a motorbike accident 2 days into our trip and left my partner temporarily in a wheel chair and myself limping and wounded but the hotel did absolutely anything and everything they could for us including sending flowers to our room wishing us a quick recovery and they were always checking on us to see if we needed anything at all - the service was beyond 5 star and if you’re looking for an escape and a one stop place with everything to just unwind and relax then The Sands is the place for you I could not rate it highly enough - thank you to all the beautiful staff and management for everything!

Luxury beachfront hotel made all the more perfect by the staff and the facilities on offer. Everyone working in this hotel regularly go out of their way to ensure that you have a fabulous stay. The private plunge pools are very luxurious, but don't worry if you don't have one of these rooms. The pool and sun bed area has plenty of space for everyone. Perfectly located for bars and restaurants and all the activity in Khao lak. This is my third stay in this hotel.
