“Fabulous Holiday”
Reviewed 30 January 2012

We have just returned from two weeks at Ramada Resort in Khao Lak and would definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for a completely restful break. We had booked a deluxe room with jacuzzi and were delighted upon arrival to be upgraded to a villa with private pool. All the staff are extremely friendly and courteous and ever willing to please. Exceptionally clean and no complaints what so ever.

We stayed at Ramada for 11 nights with our 1 1/2 and 4 year old. We had a Deluxe Lanai room which I would highly recommend as being a ground floor room we had a verandah with sun beds and could step onto the grass area near the pool. The staff were EXCELLENT and the service fantastic. Beautiful breakfast too. The area is the best we have ever been to in Thailand, not too touristy but plenty of places to get great Thai food (even on the beach for lunch). The only criticism we had was that the Ramada states it has a 'kids club' and advertises kids activities throughout the day. Unfortunately, these 'kids activities' never seem to eventuate which, when we particularly chose this resort for the benefit of a kids club (and paid for it), was very disappointing. We'd even made a special trip back to the resort so our son could attend certain kids activities they had advertised during the day, only to find they were not on - he was also very upset. I think the commitment and advertisements of the kids club & activities needs to be reviewed. Other than that, our stay was fabulous and we love it. A special thanks to Sun at the front desk and Gorge in the pool bar who were so very welcoming and great with our kids. We would definitely return to Ramada.

Room Tip: Deluxe Lanai are nice to step out at ground level and have a little verandah with sun beds

We will most defiantly return to the Ramada Resort Khao Lak, everything was of the highest standard you could imagine and all staff were exceptionally kind, helpful, caring and genuine. we stayed at 7 hotels and resorts while on our trip around Thailand and the Ramada and Khao Lak town is our favourite place. AMAZING!!!!

I have just returned from an 8 night stay at Ramada Khao Lak with my husband and 2 children 18 and 13. We booked 2 deluxe oasis rooms (interconnecting) and were given 2 rooms on the 2nd floor overlooking the pool just upstairs from the reception. The rooms were nice and spacious and the bathrooms were big also. The kids liked having a double bed each and really appreciated the free Wi-fi which was reliable and just as fast as at home.

Even though the resort was at/almost full capacity when we stayed there it never seemed crowded. You could always get a table at breakfast and we could always get 4 sun lounges together by the pool.

As said in previous reviews the staff were friendly and always ready to help. I too would like to make mention of Toh who works around the pool and bar. Always happy and smiling, nothing was too much trouble.

One day my husband and daughter did the free guided 2 hour bike ride to the waterfall. They were the only two people on the ride and really enjoyed the experience. They were taken by Poh?? who took good care of them and madesure they were safe and stopped along the way to point out things of interest. The only small complaint was lack of maintenance on the bikes as both bikes had brake and gear troubles.

We were there on a friday and were invited to attend the weekly cocktail hour to meet the Ramada mangement team.We were given cocktails and and finger food while the GM circulated and tried to talk to as many guests as possible. We had a quick chat and complimented him on the hotel and he said he was hoping to see more Australians visiting the hotel. But it was quite nice not to hear too many Aussie accents.

We ate at Sassi's restaurant the first night as we got there just after dark, and had a few lunches by the pool. The food was nice and prices reasonable but every other night we ate outside the hotel.

Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Lovely hotel on a nice stretch of beach with everything you would want close by. I would definately like to return and try the beach front villas. They looked very nice.

This is a lovely resort looking on to the beach, just outside the very busy tourist town of Khao Lak. We stayed here for six nights recently, but even though it was the peak holiday season, it never felt too crowded, as there was plenty of space to spread out.

The hotel can arrange for a pickup service from Phuket airport; the journey took about 80 minutes. The reception staff, were, like all the other staff, nothing less than than charming, and instantly made us feel at home.

Our spotlessly clean room was on the ground floor, with its own deck, which could be reached from the gardens. There was plenty of storage, and the spaciousness could be further enhanced by folding back one wall of the bathroom to merge it into the bedroom, if desired, The well designed bathroom included a tasteful jacuzzi bath.

Breakfasts were very good, with a wide selection of Eastern & Western dishes. We also ate at Sassi's a couple of times: the food was very good , and prices competitive. I can't say the same of the Mellow Bean, which served up a weird sandwich and Caesar salad.

In fact, you are spoilt for choice when it comes to food. Taking a few steps along the beach or down the road outside the hotel will bring you to dozens of reasonably priced restaurants serving delicious Thai or Western food. There are also numerous bespoke tailors, money changers, massage parlours, and travel agencies attempting to sell day trips to the Similan Islands (don't bother - on my dive boat I was chatting to a man whose wife had ended up on a smallish island beach with 700 other sun-seekers). If you get bored with the local eateries, Khao Lak is just a 5-minute taxi ride away.

My only criticism of the Ramada is its tsunami evacuation procedure. Although there are clear signs at the bottom of stairs indicating the tsunami evacuation points, I have severe doubts about whether they'd be used. At about 12:15am one night, the alarms went off, and all the guests ran into the corridor. A trio of security guards, dressed like soldiers in a banana republic, ran around like headless chickens. No-one told us anything, so we just stood around. Our neighbours rang reception, who said they didn't know anything either. Finally, the alarms stopped, and we returned to our rooms (I had to ask one of the giggling guards: 'OK?'). Not a thing was said the next day, and we were leaving anyway, so didn't pursue it. We later found out that there had been a 7.3 magnitude earthquake in Sumatra.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Ramada, and would have given it a perfect score, if not for the confusion described above.

Dear Nyonya,
Warm Greetings to Bristol !
Thank you for sharing your holiday experience and that you had a relaxing time. Health & Safety of our guests and staff is our priority. Our apology regarding the false fire alarm after midnight and disturbing your sleep. Unfortunately a guest smoked in his room which is strictly forbidden and the alarm went off. It took some time to locate the room. I recommend to read the Safety & Evacuation Instruction on the room door and rooms directory, that explains all safety & evacuation procedures. The Tsunami Alarm is a "Sirene signal" and the fire alarm is a " bell ringing " as you have heard at this night. We have also installed loudspeakers indoor and outdoor, so we can communicate to all guests from our command center even via Microphone should an emergency occur even without electricity.
We have discussed this case within the team to better inform our guests in case of such incidents.
Thank you for staying with us and we look forward to see you again
With best regards
Your Ramada Team

We stayed in Ramada Khao Lak from 5th January 2012 to 13th January 2012

Ramada is actually a boutique hotel & is really nice, not too big, very well located on Bang Niang beach.

Deluxe Oasis rooms are nice & spacious, well decorated, with all you can expect. Bathroom is really nice as well.

Breakfast is good, though not the best we have ever had, still good. And not only for german people as we had read on the

Internet !!

Staff is really helpful & very smiling. I have to mention Toh & the beach staff who did a great job, always trying to help &

making sure you dont need anything.

Beach is really nice (nicest spot on Bang Niang beach actually), as the pool. Sunbeds are always available.

Outside the hotels, many restaurants in Bang Niang to have diner or lunch. We do recommend
* Green Pepper, in Bang Niang Village. Great Thai food and nice restaurant
* Inder's Chullah (Indian restaurant on your right on road when you walk out of Ramada). Great food !
* Chong Fah's restaurant : nice restaurant with good Thai food with a view on the beach
* Sawasdee :in Bang Niang Village. Good Thai food
* Mali seafood : in Bang Niang Village, good Indian & thai food
* My Friend : beach restaurant (walk on the left when you are on the hotel's beach). Nice & slow ;)
* Tonson's : closest beach restaurant on the left of the hotel. Not as good as we had read on the Internet. My Friend was better.

In the hotel, the excursion desk did a great job with our Similan D2/1N excursion. Seastar, which took care of us fro 2 days, did

a fantastic job. They are really open do changes if you do not want to snorkel but prefer staying on the beach at the end of the

afternoon when all tourists & speedboats leave. The food they do provide on the island is good and there was plenty of it

(atucally too much for us two).

Hotel is 5min in taxi from Khao Lak City, which costs 150 THB per way. Try to negociate 100THB per way if you are more than 2 in

the taxi.

One of us two did also some diving with Big Blue Diving in Khao Lak, which is a nice diving club !

Overall, we have a great stay, close to perfection !
We will come back at Ramada, should we stay in Khao Lak again, 100% certain !

Thank you Ramada for the great holidays.

A couple in their early 30s !

Had a great time there! Great location, walking distance to shopping, massages and motorbike rentals. Happy hour by the pool is great with great deals on food, too! Some entertainment for the hildren at the poll was a nice touch(thai box). Our room had some kind of drain that we could not understand, shower water went towards t font door, called engineer and they just added bath towels on the floor!!! Bed desing, floor was lined that way!!! Some kind of sewer smell from time to time when you walk outside towards the rooms and by the breakfast area.
