"Absolutely lovely hotel with lots to do, or not do"
Good food, polite , attentive efficient staff. Excellent breakfasts- what a choice.
I hired a bicycle one morning and went for a ride . On my one hour journey I can across two elephants on their way to work and then cycled down the beach back to the hotel. It was idyllic!
Enjoyed the comfort of the room, service was prompt and place was maintained well. Room was spic and span, and facilities were amazing. Good food, esp drinks at the pool were refreshing. Definitely recommended for a quick getaway or a long relaxing stay. Best facility was attached pool from the comfort of your own room.
"Fantastic hotel, top quality room and facilities"
We arrived late to a very courteous and efficient check in at the Apsara; opened the door to a fantastic sea front room, which was all the more appreciated when we opened the curtains in the morning to find the beach right under our nose. Absolutely wonderful stay, in a really nice part of Thailand which is recovering so well after the devastation of 2004.
This is not a place for the night Owls and Ravers, in fact the only downside was the fact that the evenings could be just a bit too sedate; but that is probably due to being there at the start of the season. If you want bouncing bars and the rest then stay closer in to Khao Lak town. Everywhere we went along the very very long beach, we were greeted by friendly and efficient staff from the smallest one person pop up, to the more established beach bar/restaurants. Be sure to try a meal at the little restaurant at the very end of the beach road (about 1km away from the Apsara, easy walking) it is worth the effort to go on (early) past the few usual stops clustered around the junction.

We were greeted by helpful front desk staff who took care of all the paperwork for us, took our bags and took us to our room quickly. We really liked the slower pace of this area of Thailand about an hour from Phuket. We were on our honeymoon but we enjoyed seeing families and other couples enjoying the slower pace, beautiful weather and great facilities. This hotel is about a 10 minute walk from the beach but there are lots of nice shops and restaurants on the way there that we enjoyed. Also, there is a slightly busier area also with a beach and a few more shops only a 150 B taxi ride away. The room was better than we expected and the hotel staff was very helpful. Our room was cleaned very well every day. We would recommend this hotel and look forward to returning in the future.
