The Merlin Beach Resort in Khao Lak certainly has the wow factor. Built into the forest of Thailand it opens out onto a lovely sandy beach. The hotel is built with blocks of two storey buildings set amongst trees and plants. There are two restaurants, one by the beach and one by the reception area. Both serve beautiful food with...

We visited Merlin in 2004 so this was our second time here. It's a really beautiful hotel, the gardens are amazing. We actually loved everything about it, very friendly staff, excellent room service (for a lazy dinner in) , huge bathroom, and very comfortable bed. We had a room with our own pool with a waterfall and the water was...

We had a pool access room which was fabulous. Huge balconies then able to step into a pool surrounded by beautiful plants and trees. The staff were mostly brilliant. Everyone in the restaurants...

A very nice hotel away from the centre of Khao Lak - although a large complex it is broken down in to areas such that we never felt over-awed by it. Good beach location safe sea to swim in and long walks along the beach possible. Many pools but we preferred the sea so only used main pool for once...

We had a fantastic room overlooking the waterfall style swimming pools, the gardens were stunning and immaculate the food was brilliant the staff fantastic and it...
