Thailand has many fascinating beaches. In Southern Thailand’s Phang Nga Province lies a prime holiday destination called Khao Lak. Khao Lak, a stretch of sand approximately 30 kilometers long, is located along the Andaman Sea. It starts at Khao Lak beach and ends in a fishing village called Baan Nam Khem. This place has a lot to offer in terms of nature’s beauty, including its beaches, its creature comforts, and its warm ocean. If you ask someone who knows Thailand but has never been to Khao Lak, they’ll probably tell you that it’s known for its great accommodation options because there are quite a number of upscale resorts in the area. Fortunately, there are affordable ones too. Whether you’ve got a big budget or a tight one, here’s what you need to know about looking for a place to stay in Khao Lak:

 

Khao Lak and Its Geographical Location

Khao Lak is situated on the west coast of Southern Thailand. As mentioned, it’s 30 kilometers long and is located along the Andaman Sea. You can find six beaches along this stretch of sand, including Khao Lak, Nang Thong (and its resort town La On Village), Bang Niang, Khuk Khak, Pak Weep, and Bang Sak. The Khao Lak coastline covers an area from South Beach just north of Thap Lamu to Bang Sak Beach a few kilometers south of Takua Pa.

Most of the beaches in Khao Lak are scarcely developed. Visitors can expect to find long strips of sand that are deserted and bordered by lush vegetation. It’s ironic that while Khao Lak has some of Thailand’s finest boutique resorts and international hotel chains; you can also expect to find smaller, family-run or locally-owned resorts and other lodgings. Such places can offer you wonderful accommodations with excellent service, and serve you delectable food to boot.

 

Where to Stay

If you’re looking for a place to stay in the area, here’s what to expect in three of its geographical locations:

 

● Central – The good thing about Central Khao Lak is that it is located in the heart of Khao Lak, the heart of the place. That said, you can find shopping centers, restaurants, and bars in this particular area. Aside from sprawling resorts, you can check out budget accommodations here. The place surely offers diverse choices in terms of places to stay.

● South – Some of the bigger, more established resorts are located in Khao Lak. Please be advised, however, that you won’t find affordable lodgings here. You should also note that there is a narrow selection of restaurants and shops. But if you have the financial means, you can stay in one of the grand resorts. Besides, you can savor the pristine beauty of South Beach with fewer distractions.

● North – Finally, you can explore the Northern part of Khao Lak. This area has a lot to offer, such as accommodations, beaches, and restaurants. Yes, you can expect several big resorts and a few smaller, mid-range resorts and bungalows here. The thing is, the accommodation choices are more spread out because of the area’s size. If you happen to check in one, you can have a very diverse selection of places to dine or shop. On top of the list in Northern Khao Lak are Khuk Khak, Pakarang, Pak Weeb, and Bang Sak beaches. These are stunningly beautiful and far less crowded. If you’re looking for a peaceful, pleasant holiday, you may want to find a place to stay near one of these places.
