Stylish new boutique beachfront resort Manathai Khao Lak promises a new take on Thai tourism.
With a focus on a more authentic local experience, (all guests are greeted with a traditional Thai water blessing), Manathai Khao Lak offers breath-taking natural beauty, including wide stretches of pristine beaches, elephant treks, waterfalls, canoeing in stunning Phang Nga Bay and world-renowned diving, it epitomises the very best of Thailand’s natural beauty and rich culture.
Just a 90 minutes drive north of Phuket Int’l Airport, on Bangsak Beach, Manathai Khao Lak sits on a perfect stretch of unspoiled coastline with uninterrupted views of the Andaman Sea.
The hotel’s 158 chic and contemporary rooms are beachfront and surrounded by lovely and manicured gardens; it’s a delightful boutique alternative to the straining tourist resorts that take up much of the mainland.
Additionally, its beachfront restaurant, Pad Thai, celebrates one of Thailand’s most iconic and best-loved dishes, by offering traditional Thai dishes inspired by iconic Thai street food including 22 different and delectable variations on the traditional Pad Thai.
