The Southsea Grand Khao Lak lines up a smart-looking pool area and a peaceful location just moments from the beach.
This place has got simple chic down to a T. The open-air lobby features natural, rough-cut marble flooring and simple, dark-wood furniture. Bedrooms, meanwhile, are dressed in muted tones of cool grey and ochre.
The property has clinched a sleepy spot, right on a long, golden strip of sand. It’s a 20-minute bus ride to the centre of Khao Lak, and the hotel puts on a shuttle if you want to go into town.

Calm and laid-back, sunsets on the beach to die for....
Very happy with our stay here. Writing this now at the end of our 2 weeks stay. The Hotel is situated in a very quite area. Friendly and polite staff. Helpful with sorting out various bits, like getting taxis etc. Spacious room with a large balcony. the hotel has a somewhat tired look, not squeaky clean exactly, but still over-all a calm and low-key stylish look. The hotel is quite spread-out, we stayed in a Premium 2nd floor-room very close to restaurant and pool. If you stay further out on one of the side-wings you will have a bit of a walk to the main building. Hotel pool is very nice and most of the time quite. Could do with a few more parasols but there's some shade from the trees around. The area is very calm, beach just across a not very busy road ( its a dead end road). The beach is quite shallow and stretches on for miles and miles to the south. The hotel sits just close to Cape Pakarang. There are several little beach "cafÃ©s" where you can sit in a sun chair the whole day if you like, just buy a drink. They also do fantastic Thai-massages (and doubles up as taxi-service and probably can fix some snacks too!). There are several restaurants close by, 200 m to the right you find 4 clustered just by the Tsunami-shelter. 200 m to the left you'll find the Apsara beach resort where you can sit at white-cloth tables on the beach and watch the sunset. One of our favorites! A little bit further you'll find Memories Beach Bar, a bit of a "surf-bum" place with great food and ambience. Don't miss that! If your are a larger group you might need to book a table in advance. I can understand some of the negative comments in previous reviews but I guess it depends a lot on your expectations. No, this is not a four or five-star hotel according to European standards, the spacious room and the large balcony does give one a luxurious feel. On our part though we had the most relaxing holiday ever! The staff spoke very little English but usually we could make ourselves understood and we never experienced any arrogance, rather the contrary. The main negative thing was the hotel restaurant. Unfortunately we had paid for half-board, despite reading advices not too. The food at the restaurant was generally bland. We had two good dinners at the hotel but we realised later that they'd given us a different menu to the all inclusive/half board one(!). Probably by mistake. So we strongly advice against booking all-inclusive or half-board as there are plenty of good (and better!) restaurants close by. Quite cheap too, 200-250 bath for a good meal/person. We ended up eating most of our meals outside the hotel. As stated initially this is a quite place with lots of beach just outside. If you want to be more active there's quite a few organised trips you can do. We went on one with Similan Charter tours to a group of secluded islands to the north. But you can easily find various other day tours if you feel like exploring. It will cost a bit but we definitelly thought ours was good value.More
happy friendly hotel
room lovely kept very clean thank you cleaners reception staff so helpful i loved thier hair clips they had and they kindly got me one breakfast was fine ommeletes and bacon great i evan enjoyed the coffee whitch in alot of places abroad is poor had snack there but for price not impressedMore
I'm undoubtedly staying here now, paid a great deal of money. Staff is arrogant, food terrible and it's in the middle of nowhere. Room big and clean. Nice terrace outside with chairs and a subbed. Worth the money? NO!!!!More
A decent stay in a safe, quiet area.
We visited for 5 days, first impressions were that the hotel was very quiet. We only saw 4 other guests in 24 hours. At dinner on our first night we were the only ones in the dining room. The food was satisfactory but not the best we had ever had so the next night decided to try the restaurants at the top of the road. They were all on a par with each other, none standing out as the best. Our airconditioning gave up the ghost on the last night so we called reception to see if they could fix it. The immediately sent 2 work men to try and fix it from outside (to begin with, then inside after we invited them in.) Alas, it wasnt working when we arrived abck home after dinner but at least they tried. They also offered us to change rooms but seeing as it was our last night we didn't fancy relocating. At least the ceiling fan worked. The beach is long and lovely for walks, Memories bar to the left (past Apsara hotel) was worth a snack and a few drinks (if only to see other souls as our hotel was like a ghost town!) Taxis are outside all the time and you pay 300-400 baht to take you to town. (further south is more expensive obviously). Got to the Ben niang market and eat some crickets and meal worms :-) And go to Moo Moos cabaret show too!More
