We stayed in the hotel during the day of 2021. The treatments, services, and hospitality are splendid. The front manager, Tony, did serve us more than 7 stars service. We totally want to go back there again. Highly recommended for those who seek for the relaxation and peacefulness.

My wife and I decided to spend a few days in the Phang Nga province in Thailand. After a great deal of research we selected the JW Marriott at Khao Lak beach. We were greeted at reception by Lynn, a manager, who told us about the resort, got us a cold drink and told us she had upgraded our room to a poolside room. The room was significantly larger than your average hotel room and had a private patio that open directly to the pool. (I believe the largest pool in Asia). Service at the resort was extraordinary. Room service was quick. The morning breakfast buffet was very good and was served on a patio right in the beach. We had dinner each night at Olive - wine was reasonably priced and the menu and food was very good. Our server Kit was very attentive and we had a chance to meet the chef. The beach at Khao Lak is beautiful and the beach staff was very helpful with food, drinks, and beach supplies. Special thanks to Tony one of the managers at the resort for checking in on, helping with reservations, answering questions. Highly recommended and we will return there shortly. Read less

The people are professional, but warm and friendly. Everyone from the staff is so friendly and help you however they can. But what I was more amazed of was the food that was served by Mohan and Enzo. Don’t hesitate to ask for the Indian cuisine with delicious naan bread and Indian delicatesse. Great service, great food. Thank you!

We stayed at JW Marriot for 2 weeks during January 2022. We had a really nice time during these 2 weeks. The location of the hotel is just amazing by the sea. Sitting at the open sky bar watching sunset with a drink in your hand is just one of those amazing moments… Breakfast is just splendid with a wide range of variety and chef Mohan is very kind to make sure you get what u ask for if not available. There are several restaurants at the hotel and I can recommend the Olive restaurant. We had the opportunity to have an Indian evening at this restaurant. Chef Mohan offered us to make our own menu which he elegantly cooked for us. Our kids are still taking about the chicken Tikka masala… Hotel staff are really nice and friendly. Kids club is amazing and so is the gym facilities. Read less

We stayed at the JW Marriott Khao Lak for four nights and were so impressed with every aspect of this resort! The hotel grounds are stunning - traditional Thai architecture combined with modern touches creat an exceptional ambiance and transport you into another world. We were pleased to see that the resort was still fairly busy, even with current Covid restrictions : the volume of returning and new guests is a testament to the quality of this hotel. For me, the location was superb - isolated from city and work chaos and immersed in beautiful surroundings. The resort is really self-contained, like a little village with every amenity and need of its guests taken into account. The beach is stunning - soft sand and shallow, clean water perfect for swimming and long walks at sunset. The swimming pool is endless and a highlight of the JW Marriott. I had a pool-access room so could basically swim all around the resort. My room was beautifully decorated and cared for by attentive and reliable house-cleaning staff. The toiletries that were provided were of a very high quality and replenished every day. I also really enjoyed the gym and yoga studio. They have beautiful tennis courts and bicycles for guests as well as squash courts and table tennis. There are endless activities to explore here! Breakfast at the JW Marriott was really good : full of variety and with charming and attentive service. We ordered room service a few times as well and loved the stone-baked pizzas and Indian food. The chef is excellent! The Italian Restaurant was also excellent with sophisticated and delicious meals at dinner time. Unfortunately we didn’t get the chance to try the Japanese or Thai restaurants on site. We did, however, find a local seafood restaurant on the beach which is definitely worth visiting - it is called Krua Thai and is about a 10 minute drive from the hotel. The spa is beautiful and makes you feel like you are in a different world. The ladies at Reception also helped us organise a day trip that was tailored to our needs - we went deep-sea fishing and explored a nearby coral reef and deserted island before cruising back along the coast. Thank you for organising this for us! The members of staff at the JW Marriott were outstanding and really deserve praise and recognition. I have never been on a holiday where I felt so welcomed and taken care of and would like to thank everyone for their warm and generous welcome. The nice guy who served us at breakfast was particularly nice - I think his name was Sorn. The two ladies at reception were also extremely helpful and helped me find a way to unlock my iPad and iPhone as I had misplaced the key. No request seemed to be too much for them. Thank you so much to everyone for making this such a special stay! I would love to come back. Read less
