Location

Overlooking the crystal clear Andaman Sea and beautiful white sands of Pakweep Beach, the Beyond Resort Khao Lak is a haven of relaxation.

Perfectly situated just 15 minutes’ from Khao Lak centre and one hour from Phuket International Airport, the resort is a more serene alternative to the bustling glitz of Phuket. Still one of the most popular regions in Thailand, Khao Lak boasts stretches of pristine white sandy beach and jungle-clad mountains, along with fine dining restaurants, boutique shops and vibrant nightlife.

It’s the ideal spot for a Thailand beachside experience that has just the right amount of fellow holiday-goers and popular spots to not feel too secluded, but enough quieter hideaways to escape the rush and enjoy a bit of relaxation and one-on-one time.

Villas

The stylish and comfortable Palm Villas are private, immaculate and spacious with all the creature comforts you could need on holiday. The King bed is heavenly for a good night’s sleep or an afternoon doze (there are two twin beds available for friends too), while the private balcony or terrace is an ideal spot to wile away the hours with a good book or an iced cold cocktail.

The villa also has a 40″ flat-screen TV with international channels if you’re feeling like some down time, as well as air-con and convenient in-room WiFi access so you can keep in touch while you’re away.

Premier Upgrade

You can also upgrade to the Premier Palm Villa for even more luxury and space  – a step up in style and comfort, in a prime location. These private villas also feature modern furnishings like a King bed and flat-screen TV but with extra bonuses like a sunbed on the private terrace or balcony, two reading loungers in the garden, and a DVD player for relaxing nights in.

Wine & Dine

The best part about holidaying in Thailand? The food of course! The well-loved cuisine is an international favourite around the world. The resort conveniently features three brilliant restaurants so you don’t even have to venture off the grounds to taste the best Thai delights.

One of the restaurants is situated right on the sandy beach with spectacular ocean views that really did take our breath away.

One of the inclusions of the Beyond Resort Khao Lak deal is a mouth-watering ‘All You Can Eat’ Buffet Dinner that will leave you feeling utterly satisfied! Also indulge in an exotic ‘Sumptuous Thai Buffet’ Dinner that is sure to dazzle your tastebuds.

Don’t forget the full buffet breakfast which makes every morning of your holiday worth waking up for. The selection completely blew us away!  There’s a mix of both Western and Thai cuisines including a huge selection of breads, cereals, sausages, grilled tomatoes, hot and cold Thai dishes, cold cuts, fresh fruit, jams, marmalades, fresh fruit juices and loads more.

Right on the waterfront, there’s also a fantastic little Beach Bar serving up deliciously fruity tropical and classic cocktails, fine wines, other refreshments and snacks throughout the day.

It’s a casually elegant spot, with a gorgeous view, that’s the perfect place to relax after an active day of sightseeing.

Mini Thai Cooking Class

We’re not done with Thai food yet (and I don’t think we ever will be!). One of the most fun parts of the trip is joining in on the Mini Thai Cooking Class taught by professional Thai chefs. Some of the dishes you can learn to whip up include authentic Pad Thai and Glass Noodle Salad with Tofu. It’s a sure-fire way to impress friends and family when you get back home too.

TripAdvisor Reviews

‘8 Nights of Relaxation’

Five out of five stars – Reviewed 23 January 2015

“We purchased a voucher for 8 nights at Beyond Resort from Luxury Escapes. At the time we were unsure if all that was offered would be for real. Believe me it was! We had 8 days of peace & quiet, reading, swimming & relaxing in the most beautiful surroundings. The staff were all so friendly & welcoming. The villas were spacious, clean & quiet. The food was great & I believe the resort prices were reasonable. We also had many enjoyable meals at the beach restaurants. The pools were stunning & the pool staff always made sure everyone was catered for. We love kids but really appreciated the serenity of the child free resort. I would recommend Beyond resort to anyone who wanted a week of total relaxation in gorgeous surroundings with lovely staff.”

 ‘Honeymoon Heaven’

Five out of five stars – Reviewed 12 January 2015

“Having travelled around Thailand we finished our honeymoon with 6 nights at the Beyond Resort Khao Lak and it was heavenly! Great individual rooms / suites with all you need for comfort, and a short walk to the private beach with plenty of sun chairs or the vast pool with its swim-up bar. Two happy hours per day, several restaurants with reasonable pricing, and day trip offers aplenty. The staff are so delightful and made us feel 110% welcome. A brilliant adults only paradise.”

 ‘An Amazing Resort!’

Five out of five stars – Reviewed 29 December 2014

“We visited Beyond resort Khao Lak from 4th to 19th December 2014. It was absolutely amazing! This was our first trip to Thailand and our stay here made it so special. All the staff are so friendly and service is above and beyond. The grounds of the resort are stunning as are the rooms. We stayed in a premium villa which was very close to the beach and it was great. Little touches such as a newspaper and fresh fruit left in your room each day was so nice. Breakfast was fab, so much choice! Yoga on the beach is a must if you like it. Cocktail hour each day was good and the food in the restaurant and the beach bar was delicious! We had an amazing 2 weeks, we fell in love with the place and we were very sad to leave. Thanks for an amazing stay!”
