Instagrammable Spots


Much thought has been put into designing this place, especially with the numerous Instagrammable spots around the resort.


Pool Access Room

There are a total of 8 room types at La Vela Khao Lak, but the most popular one has to be the Pool Access rooms.


Pool Access room at 54sqm is spacious. There is a bathtub for you to enjoy in the washroom, but if you are someone who wants a beautiful picture of yourself in the bathtub, perhaps consider staying in the Pool Access Grand rooms.


Staying in the pool access room allows direct access to the pool easily. You can either laze around the lounger on the terrace or dip in the pool on a sunny day.


Kokulo Beach Club

Kokulo Beach Club is next to the beach and is also the place to get your fix for dinner, drinks and performances. On our first night, we had delicious authentic Southern Thai food – the best way to start our stay.


For buffet lovers, they have Japanese buffet on Fridays and BBQ Seafood buffet on Saturdays.


Another reason to visit during the weekend has to be the intriguing fire show and a bartender show after dinner that promise to make your night unforgettable.


Cotton Cafe & Library


During the day, do make time to have some pastries and coffee at Cotton Cafe & Library. The croissants here are amazing, one of the best I had in Thailand – crispy on the outside and soft and flakey on the inside. It’s a pleasant surprise to find such premium pastries at Khao Lak.

Laybay Khao Lak Surf Capital


Khao Lak is popular with Thai locals for being the surf capital, and no other resorts in Khao Lak offer such a complete surfing experience.


They have a surf shop and also trainers to teach you how to surf/skate even if you are completely new to the sport.

Spa Qaqula


At such a beautiful resort, the only thing to complete the relaxing experience has to be a spa session at Spa Qaqula. Do check out their attractive promotions during your stay. They have a wide range of spa treatments available.



The gym is spacious and offers a good view while you work out.

Kids Club – Petit Captain


If you are on a family trip with your kids, you can leave them with the experienced staff at Petit Captain. With Montessori-inspired toys and edutainment activities, your children will discover, learn, and have fun in a welcoming and nurturing environment.


The next time you plan for a beach resort escape, keep Khao Lak in mind because it’s just a 1hr drive away from Phuket International Airport. With less tourists, equally mesmerizing beaches and full facilities, the surf capital of Thailand is the place for you.
