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.

Amazing time in Khao Lak
Like most people, my girlfriend and I heard about The Haven through Luxury Escapes this time last year. We thought "why not. We've never been to Thailand before" and for those reading this, it was well worth it. The resort itself was amazing! The rooms were clean. Amenities plentiful. Food-wise, lots to choose from during breakfast. And their themed nights were well worth the money spent. The pool was amazing. We didn't have a swim-out room, but that was ok. The main pool was excellent. And if the pool isn't your thing, the beach is literally a stone throw away. So clean and well kept. They have a variety of free activities that we tried, plus tours we could do. The one we booked through the resort were the Thai Cooking Experience and Old Takua Pa Sunday Market. Old Takua Pa Sunday Market was good. Having originally come from the Philippines, the market definitely reminded me of being back there. About half an hour drive from the resort and you've got time to do this tour, they take you to a couple of temples - Chinese Temple and Buddhist Temple plus the market itself. They also take you to the Elephant Camp, but we did that in another tour (Elephant Trekking and Bath) Thai Cooking Experience is a must if you're a foodie. You get to learn how traditional Thai dishes are prepared and get to eat it too :). We opted to go to the market with the head chef to experience the Thai market. However, if you've been to other Asian markets, its exactly the same. Although it was nice to see what produce they had around the area. In addition, we happen to be there during "Songkran" or Thai New Year or Water Festival. The resort put on activities and definitely got into the spirit of the celebration. If you go during this time, waterproof camera is definitely a must. The Luxury Escapes voucher entitled us to get 8 (between the two of us) massage in their spa - Aqua Spa. It was heavenly. So much so that we had to have one more before the end of our trip which we gladly paid for. The staff were excellent. Just be aware - English is not their first language. So you will have to be patient (unless you know Thai). Regardless of this, they will move heaven and earth to meet your needs. Overall, if you have the opportunity to stay at this resort, do it! We will! :DMore
Amazing holiday and the staff are now like family.
The Haven Khao Lak is now our favorite family holiday. We returned yesterday and have re-booked to go back today. The staff at this location are amazing. As there are no children under the age of 12 it makes for a great stay without screaming kids. We had a pool entry room which was well worth the extra money. We also recommend a Thai Cooking class with Chef, he is one of the most genuine nicest people we have met. If you are looking for a place to visit to unwind and relax then look no further.

A relaxing getaway on Luxury Escapes
All boxes ticked - great room, pool, breakfast, right on the beach, weather was good. Only thing was the staff were all seem to be learning - not good at communication about things beyond the hotel. Hotel restaurant great but expensive compared to the restaurants outside.More

Relaxing in Paradise
We had just completed a trek in Nepal and went to Khao Lak to relax and recover for a week. Couldn't have chosen a better place! Our room was on the second floor at the front of the resort and we could see the sea and hear the gentle waves from our balcony. Very spacious room with a comfortable sitting area and large, soft bed and pillows. Several small restaurants nearby, with laundry done for 50baht per kilo at the closest one to the resort. Free shuttle bus from the resort to the nearby town and markets in the afternoon. The resort was clean, well maintained, beautiful gardens, good food. A great place to relax!More
Break from stressful job
Our second trip to Khao Lak, this resort was great, we had an Ocean Front Villa (5109). Highly recommend this unit, our room attendant (May) was a gem. The Resort itself is a little bit isolated but for us this was no problem, two free shuttles a day into town or market three times a week, the pool at the resort is fabulous. Alex, the Quality and Service Manager was particularly helpful with my wife's purchases. The fitness centre is very well fitted out and well located.More
