There isn’t just one thing that distinguishes a hotel from its competitors. Providing several key elements to the consideration, however, can make it possible to differentiate them. For example, is the hotel close to the beach and does it have a restaurant that is superior to other Khao Lak beach restaurants? Does the hotel provide things to do in Khao Lak? For those who enjoy late-night activities, for example, is the hotel near the Khao Lak nightlife? And for those who prefer a more tranquil holiday, is the hotel sufficiently removed from the hustle and bustle of the Khao Lak center?

Which of the Khao Lak hotels are the best in the district and are likely to provide the type of service, amenities, and location, that will enhance your stay? The following list of the 5 best hotels are chosen, in part, by dividing them into their location within 5 of the 8 Khao Lak villages.
