Apsara Beachfront Resort & Villa

Khao Lak, Thailand

Virgin rating

The hotel

You could be forgiven for thinking the Apsara is only for water babies, with its beachfront setting, infinity swimming pool, villa pool, two kids' pools, pool villa upgrades, water slide and of course, the obligatory Jacuzzi. But there’s more to the Apsara than sun, sea and sand. Set in unspoilt tropical greenery, along Pakarang Beach, this All Inclusive haven offers a range of drinks and things to do. There’s the Thai cookery classes, Thai boxing, spa treatments, bike rental and kayaking to name but a few!

Our stay was absolutely fabulous. Thanks for making our honeymoon a special and memorable one. The Pool Villa accommodation is very spacious, clean and kept in great shape. Breakfast at the resort is tasty, healthy and delightful. Kudos to the chefs. Plenty of activities to keep you entertained, great music, drinks, pool. Awesome location, the beach is super for surfing , the waves were perfect. Luckily we witnessed the AQUALUMINA event, great food and locals (Thai) in attendance. Thai massage offered on the resort was relaxing. The library is rich with books written in different languages(English, Finnish, German..etc) so you’d definitely find something interesting for you. Check in and check out we’re extremely easy, and staff were wonderfully attentive, courteous and friendly! Very safe environment 24/7, well managed. Thank you to the managers Emee and Co and the front desk. Whatever you need, they got you. It’s an amazing location for couples or family trips. Definitely gonna return, maybe with our babies this time 😎 Read less

Was great to return to the Apsara after 3 years and again it didn’t disappoint us. We stayed in a pool villa over the bridge which was quiet, relaxing and well maintained. Pool came in particularly useful due to the warm weather! Staff were fantastic as usual and a special mention to Golf, Emee, Kate and Ada who were great with us on reception.… Read more

Pool came in particularly useful due to the warm weather! Staff were fantastic as usual and a special mention to Golf, Emee, Kate and Ada who were great with us on reception. Che, Tee and Ohm in the restaurant are always happy to chat and thanks to Tee for the peanut recipe. In the Horizon bar Man and Ko always knew what we wanted to drink and they were very polite and happy to chat. We took several trips into town which hopefully is now getting back in its feet after the pandemic and took several trips down the beach to memories bar. Overall, the food was fantastic the place so relaxing and just what we needed. Can’t wait to come back here again and credit to the hotel on how friendly, polite and happy the staff are. Read less

My wife, 13 year old daughter and I stayed here for a week in a pool villa and had an amazing time. It was low/green season so some restaurants were closed but we never went hungry. Staff were attentive, very helpful and very polite. Thanks especially to Tee for remembering our drinks order each mealtime! Food was really nice but a little limited due to being low season, each meal was very good quality and the pizzas were amazing. Drinks were good quality and there wasn't usually much of a wait The villa was fantastic. We had a problem with the jets not working and about 10 minutes later someone had fixed them, I think they even changed our air conditioning unit when we were having dinner once! Fittings and fixtures were of a high standard and the beds were very comfy. Pool and outside were cleaned I think daily. Beach was lovely but a lot of rubbish is washed up due to the location. This is tidied obviously but its constantly floating on the top of the water and a little further down the beach it looks like a tip. The spa is really nice, had a massage and the hour seemed to last about 7 minutes but left feeling fantastic. I would not hesitate to go again, we had a fabulous time. Read less

Had a fantastic holiday all the staff are amazing so kind friendly and thoughtful. Accomodation was fab, had a two bed pool villa for the week. It had everything you could want and was cleaned daily to a high standard. Always staff around they were all very helpful they work so hard to make people's stay awesome and definitely succeeded for us. Never had to wait for anything including a buggy in the rain storm. The hotel was so quiet we seemed to have all the pools both on villa side and main hotel side to ourselves which was a lovely bonus. AI food and drinks good. Can have AI drinks at all the bars (didn't realise this at first) the sun set from the beach bar is awesome! Beautiful walk along the beach in the lovely warm water seeing all the different wildlife! Surf school and rental on site which is great. Hotel has a bus/car service into the town at a reasonable price used the local open back taxi services to return ( a little bit scary at times but what an experience). A short walk away is the Elephant home and we had an amazing time there including a delicious lunch at Memories bar. Fantastic hotel, gorgeous setting, amazing staff with plentiful facilities made an awesome holiday, would love to come back and explore Thailand some more from Apsara! Read less
