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.

Beautiful 5 star property run as a 4 star
The property and location is beautiful. Great infinity pool. It is almost new, 2 years old I think but it is already showing some signs of ageing. Properties like this in the tropics require an ongoing regime of maintenance. Staff are helpful and welcoming with the exception of one particular person at the restaurant (Ammy H.). He seemed to be somehow in charge of the restaurant and always looked grumpy. He treated us and all guests as an annoyance. I do not normally like to name and shame, but this one really deserves it. The food at the restaurant is not partucularly good and overpriced anyway. So we ate most of the times at one restaurant outside. There are a few restaurants just 5 minutes walk from the resort. From the reviews the food seems good at most of them, but I did not like the shanti type facilities and lack of a proper clean kitchen (sand/dirt floor in most of the kitchens). Only one looked really clean and had a proper building with concrete floor: "Paradise The Best". The owner chef and the waitress are really nice and friedly ladies. The food is also really nice. A little bit more expensive than the other restaurants, but well worth it. If you want to go for excursion talk to Laura at the massage place No.6 (next to Andaman restaurant). She is good and knowledgeable and speaks very good english.More
Oh for some rose tinted glasses
We booked this resort like most others through Luxury Escapes. The package included one way transfers from Phuket airport, breakfasts, massages and a couple of dinners. Our room was well maintained and our cleaning lady wonderful. Two steps outside the patio door and one would have fallen into one of the large swimming pools that covered the resort area. We had 16 half hour massages between us and all were taken up. Breakfasts catered for all tastes Asian through to full Western . At first impression this resort was idyllic but taking off the rose tinted glasses one could see that maintenance of much of the outside areas especially the pools was not up to standard and was starting to show up quite markedly. For a resort that caters for English speakers not enough of the staff spoke sufficient English to communicate effectively. This has been commentated on in many early reports but doesn't appear to have been acted upon. The evening meals in the main dining room could at best be described as average and very much overpriced. Fortunately there were local restaurants along the road who provided better fare at a cheaper price. The big question now is did we get value for our dollar. Despite its shortfalls the price charged represents extremely good value and we will consider coming back again should a similar offer pop upMore
A little slice of paradise
The Haven truly is a slice of paradise, the staff were friendly and accommodating, particularly Thor and Sham Poo, who seemed to be favourites amongst everyone staying at the resort. The room with the pool at your doorstep is something to be experienced, we were happy that we upgraded our Luxury Escapes package, well worth the extra $$. The cooking class and market tour with Chef Chart was definitely a highlight a must do for anyone that wants to learn more about Thai coking. The swim up pool bar was a favourite for our group and the cocktails fantastic! Cant wait to comeback some day.More
Factory Hotel but ok for price.
Just completed the luxury escapes deal like most people that were there. We had a great time with our pool access room and glad we upgraded to it. The room was what you would expect and the pools are great. Breakfast is your normal factory hotel buffet and you will definitely gind something you like as there is plenty to choose from. Restaurant and bar prices at the haven are way over the top. Most people seem to walk down the road (10min) to local restaurants that serve good food and bev at a really good price. Hotel service is good but they do struggle bigtime with their English so need to be a bit patient. Overall it is value for money with the "deal" But definitely not worth the so called normal price.More

Blob out Holiday
We had an amazing 10 days at the Haven in a delux swim up pool access room. We went there to have a relaxing holiday which is exactly what was delivered. Our room was spacious as was the bathroom but the very best was opening up your front door and having your very own swim up salt water pool right there. The staff were very friendly and accomodating and would go out of their way to help. The massages were to die for. Probably the biggest disappointment was the beach and sea definitely not safe for swimming when we were there in June and there had been a warning about a pack of dogs attacking a female walking on the beach she had to retreat to the water to escape them. Forgot the bugs that bit in June take some repellent! Thankyou Haven for a great holiday.More
