The starring role at the Haven Khao Lak goes to the swimming pool. It’s right by the beach and, at its longest, is 380 metres long.
The honey-hued sands of Khuk Khak Beach and a natural lagoon bookend this property, giving it a real out-of-the-way feel. What’s more, it’s about a 10-minute cab ride away from the town centre.
Looks-wise, there’s an east-meets-west feel about the complex. Traditional materials – thatched roofs and bamboo floors – are contrasted by contemporary furnishings, and in-room tech like 42-inch TVs.

I just spent 8 days at The Haven Khao Lak with my daughter for her 21st birthday. We loved every minute. We upgraded our Luxury Escapes deal to a pool access room. I highly recommend getting this room. The staff were friendly and helpful. For my birthday I got a cake and the staff sang Happy Birthday. The location just amazing. Right on the beach. The restaurants down the road were very nice and cheap. They have a twice daily shuttle bus service into Khao Lak and also to the Bang Niang markets. As it was the low season it was very quiet. We will be back. Thankyou for a wonderful relaxing holiday. I cannot recommend it highly enough.More
New with a Thai Relaxing Vibe.
The Haven is isolated but contains all the requirements for a relaxing holiday, we had a deluxe 2nd floor room with sea & pool views, a lovely room containing 2 queen beds & lounge with 2 big wrap around windows & balcony, below the wrap around swim out area lovely to look at but only available to ground floor rooms. As the whole resort is on water the main swimming area wraps around past villa's with private spa's, also has swim up bar & resturant for snacks, plenty of pool lounges, shade is a bit of an issue, no trees but plenty of umbrellas. Breakfast area is with pool & sea views & a fish pond, reception supplies free fish food, this is a popular way to have breakfast. Walk along the beach road in front of the resort to a few local eating & bars & massage places, although we had 2 dinners, & eight 30 mins massages included along with airport pick up .Haven has a 13 & over children policy, so is proberbly more suited to couples. Pam's is the place for good food, reception will ring for you & a car will pick up & bring back to resort, a short ride which is a free service, Pam's is small so booking would be wise. . Yes this is a place I would recomend.More
just a quite get a way
The property is rated 5 star, it might reach a 4 with a pinch. We had a great stay here very relaxing, its along way to any other town or shopping. The staff were 90 percent very helpful, i had 3 very unhelpful staff ladies. The question of would i come back is yes, very peaceful and positive experience if you are looking for a very quite time.More
We stayed at the Haven resort in August for 10 nights. We stayed there last year and when we decided to come back to Thailand this year, we couldn't wait to come back to this amazing hotel!!! The grounds are immaculate, the pool and the beach are beautiful and the staff are very friendly... It is the perfect place to recharge the batteries and be away from the world, but if you get bored there are shuttles that go to Khao Lak and Bang Niang every day where there are shops and restaurants. There are also 5 outdoor restaurants within walking distance, serving very cheap and delicious Thai food. We will definitely come back in a few years...More
A Lovely Resort ... But
My husband and I bought an 8 day Luxury Escape at The Haven, Khao Lak and took it up at the end of July. This is a lovely resort in many ways but it did have a couple of drawbacks. We have been to Khao Lak before and know that any resort there is off the beaten track which The Haven is. We did upgrade to a deluxe room and had the option of having a room with a balcony or a pool access room. As we have seen rooms right on the pool before with children playing in the pool, jumping on the verandah and diving off etc, we chose the balcony. Wrong choice! Beside the fact there were no children under 12, there were about 20 steps up to our room, 20 down, more to get to the pool and many more to get to the breakfast room and reception and bar, then more to get down to the Restaurant, then more to use the toilets whilst at the pool. In fact there were steps everywhere and if you have a dicky knee, this is not the place for you. The pool, which meanders throughout the resort is very beautiful, there were plenty of sun lounges and umbrellas to go around. Our deluxe room was very comfortable, very large with a balcony and “partial” view of the ocean, the bathroom was good with a walk-in shower. The only problem here there was not nearly enough cupboard space to put your belongings away although there was plenty of room to put a chest of drawers plus more hanging space. Just read a review from another guest regarding the plumbing in the bathroom – the same thing happened to us, turned the tap on and could not turn it off with water spraying everywhere – Plumber came quite quickly and it was rectified in a short time. The Restaurant was great and quite reasonably priced, breakfast area was also very good with a good selection of food. The bar area was terrific where we had a drink or two before going down more steps to the Restaurant every evening. Luckily we found the only lift in the place that took you up to the Reception area which included the Breakfast Room and the Bar (saved a few steps). The staff were all very friendly and accommodating, particularly in the Bar in the Reception area. As stated, the Resort was lovely and not everyone would be put off by the steps but it would have been great to know beforehand regarding this.More
