GOOD VALUE LUXURY ON PARADISE BEACH
On one of Thailand’s most beautiful beaches, with 13 km of broad white sands and palm trees, we checked out Le Meridien Khao Lak Beach & Spa Resort. This is one of our tips for good value luxury, and a favourite with families. The resort offers spacious rooms, suites and villas, some with private pools and own gardens. And there is plenty of life and fun here, with a choice of 7 restaurants and bars, health and beauty spa, tennis, watersports – along with and Thai boxing, rainforest tours and biking.
While great for children with its kid’s club, kid’s menus, and delightful kid’s pool with slides, it’s also fine if you don’t want to be disturbed by children. That is because there is always somewhere quiet to go on this huge property including an adult pool area and your spacious room (40 sqm), suite (80-160 sqm) or villa (80-660 sqm) with private outdoor living. They try to accommodate the families with young kids in a family wing.
The biggest delight for the kids is also beloved by adults. It’s the hotel’s baby elephant. We fell totally in love with this elephantine baby when it coiled its trunk around our arms – and kissed us.
