overall a great place, very clean and great food.
There were lots of great things about the hotel, however also a few disappointments. The room was very clean and spacious. Travelling with children we were in a family room and it was nice being able to close off the doors to provide some separation. The balcony was also spacious and quite private which was nice. The grounds are also spacious and well kept. However unfortunately while we were there the water park was closed for 'emergency' repairs for the majority of our stay. While I guess this is unavoidable to a certain extent, it was nonetheless disappointing as it was a large factor in selecting this hotel. The bigger water slides also seemed to close at varying times with little consistency. When the aqua park was already closed I especially would have expected a little more effort in keeping the slides open.
Relaxing destination with modern facilities and very attentive staff.
Our stay at The Sands Khao Lak was fantastic. I cannot recommend it highly enough. The resort was beautiful and the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. It has something for everyone - fun at the family Joy pool, peace and quiet at the Peace Pool, a swim up bar, chairs by the pool or the beach, a games room and outdoor games. And everything was beautifully maintained and felt fresh.
Our room was spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was plentiful with a great range of choices. The location was perfect - right on the beach, and easy walking distance to the shops and restaurants.
We felt so at home we didn't want to leave.
The Sands Resort was wonderfully located, just 5mins walk to Khao Lak centre. Located right on the beach with beautiful grounds, pools and facilities (fully fledged gym is excellent), it is definitely worth a visit. Overall the rooms have everything you need and are quite modern (although slight signs of ageing). Housekeeping staff were very good and considerate and even made me a special elephant from hand towels as a surprise for my birthday (lovely) and a birthday cake was delivered to my room as well. A special touch from a very considerate manager. Great activities room and program and also a very competitively priced mini-mart on site for all of your needs. Restaurant food was good (not great) but being so close to town centre we ate a lot of fresh Thai and other western dishes anyway. Pools are just beautiful with swim up bar and numerous 'happy hours' across the 3 bars. Resort would benefit from a coffee shop/cafe to supplement existing food options, but overall this place is very good and definitely worth your time and money. Ideal for families (with designated kids pool and play areas), but also excellent for couples due to beauty of grounds and quite places to sit and take in the view.
All 3 rooms we had were great.. Very nice family resort in a great location..
Great resort, great location, perfect for families and those looking for a quiet relaxing time. The staff were amazing all of the time, so helpful. Good food choices and the breakfast buffet met and exceeded expectations. Plenty to do in the area and lots of great value options for eating in town.
We had a sensational time at the Sands - you couldn't ask for friendlier staff - The Family room was well laid out and provided room for the 3 of us. The kids pool was very clean and well laid out, the water slide provided hours of fun for our 10 year old. The restaurants provided a good variety of food which was well prepared, tasty and hot, breakfasts were plentiful with heaps to choose from both Asian style and simple cereal, eggs & bacon with heaps of fruit to choose as well. The layout of the resort was great, the beach lovely with nice soft sand and not rocky. Plenty of pool beds and shade provided. The massages were sensational and reasonably priced. Its location is about 100kms north of Phuket so was well off the beaten track and away from the hustle and bustle. Khao Lak is a great town with heaps of variety of restaurants and close to the amazing Similan Islands if diving or snorkeling is your thing. Would definitely go back to the Sands!
My family and myself were thoroughly thrilled with all the facilities The Sands had to offer.The resort is located on The Khao Lak beach and it stretches back from there.Every luxury is available for guests. The staff are warm,efficient and professional. We loved our accommodation.
