Luxury Escapes – The Sands Khao Lak by Katathani

Thailand’s stunning beach region of Khao Lak is just over an hour’s drive from Phuket Airport and its home to some of Thailand’s resort gems. Places like this…..the lovely Sands Khao Lak — an idyllic escape that has been inspired by nature. This is a wonderful combination of space, style and serenity that indulges all the senses. More than half the resort consists of green areas, pools and gardens ….so if you need room to move you’ll be in heaven….from the lobby all the way down to the awesome beach.
The resort’s nature inspired design has been woven throughout all the guest rooms. The suites have an open plan where the bathroom extends to the bedroom to the living area and out to a gorgeous terrace. You’ll find everything you’ll need on a holiday here — from a games room, to a big fitness center, kid’s club and activities like yoga. The holistic spa will ensure you are pampered from head to toe. Jasmin and Chris Cook from Canberra Australia opted for a relaxing massage but still found the energy to tell us about their amazing holiday. Now when it comes to dining you’ll be spoilt with both quality and choice. Huge breakfast buffets at the Floating Market…for lunch or dinner try gorgeous spicy and aromatic Thai dishes…or head to the beachfront Talay Restaurant for a mouth-watering array of seafood and international delights. The resort offers several cool bar areas where you can grab a cocktail or just hang out by the beach or pool all day and let the drinks come to you…Khao Lak itself is well-worth exploring.
Take an elephant trek…Jump on a long-tail boat to a tiny deserted island …Splash into the region’s famous dive sites…Or explore the local shops, cafes and bars. Now this is what I call a holiday.
