Suwan Palm Resort at Khao Lak

This resort would be our home for a relaxing four nights.  The location is about 10 or 15 minutes walk from the town of Khao Lak. The hotel open up right on the beach and it is quite a fantastic beach.

We had a room on the top floor with a balcony that had a nearly wonderful sea view. There is a small garden between the beach and hotel which has a few large trees. This is quite common in Thailand with many areas keeping hotels and resorts below the height of trees.

The room was spacious with a few sparse bits of furniture thrown in. It was clean and appeared to be in reasonable state of repair. I could add quiet here but again there were not many guests visible. Maybe two more couples were noticed during breakfast.

Suwan Palm Resort Swimming Pool

It is quite a small resort with wings forming a courtyard with quite bit bit of foliage. It does give it a bit of that tropical forest feeling along with a reasonably sized pool. We had this all to ourselves so it was big enough for a bit of cooling off.

Unfortunately the low season sees a lot of resorts and associated restaurants closing up due to lack of customers. We did see a small supermarket and pizza shop along with a travel agent around the resort but they were all shut up. These are nice to be near but the town is not far away.

Being on the beach makes up for all that and believe me that is what you should come here for. We were extremely happy staying here and it is one we would consider going back too.
