This is my 1st time in Khao Lak and the hotel and I'm falling in love. It's very similar to Phuket but much more quiet. I picked this hotel just because of the brand Katathani without any expectation. BUT now Khao Lak and The Sands would be our annual family vacation. Overall hotel's performances (staff, food, design, and location) are top of the class and the best of the best is that it's much less populated compared to Phuket. Here you will fine peace & quiet that you are craving for in a vacation, at least I am. In many ways, I don't want to review this hotel just because I want to maintain its peace & quiet but the hotel deserved it."TripAdvisor
This is a fantastic resort. There are many options to choose from in this hotel...suites with own pool, hotel rooms of different levels.....all fantastic. The beds are huge... This resort caters for everyone without feeling that you are in a large resort. Travelling on my own at the end of the summer season I was hoping for complete rest and relaxation....then I saw the children's area...but fear not...it is self contained and away from the peaceful adult areas...so everyone gets to have a great holiday. Lots of activities - yoga, beach jogging, volleyball and stretch classes are available, with a very good air conditioned gym if you want to work out during the day. Food options were extensive and varied - there are many restaurants outside the resort that allow you to experience more Thai options. It will definitely be on my list for a return visit."TripAdvisor
My wife and I had the pleasure to stay at this hotel for 6 nights in February this year. It was such a wonderful time and the staff at this hotel was so kindly and helpful. We stayed there on Valentines Day, and the staff made this moment just like an adventure. The breakfasts had more than you could wish, the restaurant at the beach made fantastic food, the room was very clean, with big and very good beds, the pool for adults was quiet, and the beach was clean. This is a hotel that we really hope and want to go back to. Perhaps next year? We wish the hotel and the staff all the best. You are a real top hotel."TripAdvisor
