We spent 5 nights here over Christmas and loved it - 5 nights was too short. The pool is just absolutely amazing. The longest pool I have ever seen - so much fun for my family to play in. The beach is beautiful but not really a swimming beach. The gym is well stocked. Overall, a very nice vacation spot.

Thailand has many great hotels and seldom do we return to the same beach in the same year. However the JW Khao Lak broke the trend going back within 6 weeks for the Songkran break. The hotel managed the high volume of guests easily with perfect social distancing for breakfast. All food was plated by the Chefs so Zero cross contact between guests as self service utensils were not found. The food for a property so far away from the big cities is outstanding. Chef Silvano, Enzo, Sa, Mohan, Fathi are continuously guest facing and doing their best to please. Highlight for our family was to enjoy our food in touch with nature, feet in the sand, on the beach. Amazing. The bar team under the leadership of Khun Tony and Kong are friendly and always kept us re-hydrated with their wide variations of mocktails and cocktails at reasonable prices. If you have a good appetite, they offer a fantastic selection of rotating buffets, that are so good that I saw local residents come to join the feast. Our favorite was the Rock and Roll and Persian buffet. Pictures say a thousand words, so check out some of the food memories. We will be back for sure. Read less

Once checked in to the room it was cleaned in a rush so we asked for the cleaning maid to revisit our room. Room was a lille musty and old style, the balcony should not be painted black as it is too hot to walk on. Food and beverage was great, breakfast super but busy, dinners were at the Italian restaurant every night which was brilliant. Sunsets on the beach excellent. Read less

We had the pleasure of an extended stay there and from day 1 the Marriott team (not to mention the great facilities and pool) made our stay most memorable. Lin was an exceptional Loyalty Manager who really made our loyalty to Bonvoy feel valued. Silvano was a most hospitable and genuine Executive Chef. He efficiently responded to our feedback and added a personal touch to every meal at Olive. Ann was always welcoming and Nott went out of his way to prepare a garden apero table for us, even though everyone was busy preparing for the evening's buffett. Pooh always made our breakfast special with her cheerfulness and efficiency. We look forward to our next stay. Read less
