“Great beachfront villas”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

Just went back after spending a week at this great and special resort.Overall we had a fantastic time. This was primary because we stayed in a great and clean beachfront villa and the beach (white sandy beach) is really magic, a bit like Thailand used to be 20 years ago. We stayed at the villas to the right side of the resort (search google for a map showing the layout of the place), starting at no 1170, there are 9 of these. On the other side there are 5 beachfront villas. I think we had the best choice. It was very quiet and the sound of the waves was great.This is a place where you spend lazy days at the beautiful beach and the pool. Not much happens. Walking the beach during the afternoon is lovely. The beachpool is a bit crowded during high season (the other one almost empty), and of course, full of children. Kantary is a family- place. Gym is great and Breakfastbuffet is great but we never tried the restaurant at night. I prefer the typical thai-beachrestaurant where you sit with your feet in the sand. There are 2 of these 100 m on the right side of the beach and 2 more a bit further on to the left hand (the friendly bar and the boatyard rest)
If you go to Kantary- stay in the beachfrontvillas or in a suite (complex A is nearest beach) with a seaview. (these are probably some of the best bungalows along the coastline, and I´ve seen many in Phuket and elsewhere in Thailand). But I wouldn't stay elsewhere at Kantary. There are to many villas in the middle, a bit claustrophobic I think, and unfortunately they are building a new 4 storey-building now making it look like a huge camp.
Someone said Kantary almost looks like a thai-prison and unfortunately I have to agree to this. It has a strange layout, a bit stiff, and the lobby is beautiful but totally deserted during the evening so there is no cosy resort/hotel feeling in the lobby. Its all very new and in a couple of years I think it will be a bit more green and cosy. The resort is isolated but it was ok taking a shuttle-bus from hotel to Khao Lak and do some shopping (even though Khao Lak town is a boring place)
Antoher downside with Kantary is part of the staff. At the reception they are not very Thai, not many sawadeekaahs :) and things Im used to from my many trips in the country. They are friendly but sadly seem to be lacking the typical smiling thai-mood which I love so much.
Tip: Take a taxi to the Meridien nearby a night, have a drink in the lobby looking over the beautiful garden and then walk 200 m to the left on the beach, and you´ll find a great local restaurant in the corner. (called Rim-ley?)

Room Tip: Beachfront bungalows are superior.

Very friendly reception upon arrival made to feel very welcome and they upgraded us to a villa property. The vila had a very nice comfortable sitting room with fridge tv and micro wave. Nicely fitted out bedroom and bathroom Our cleaning lady kept it immaculate and indeed put bunches or orchids in our sitting room and bathroom which we thought a swqee touch. The Andaman restaurant had a good selection on their menu both Thai and European dishes all food was nicely served and very tsty. #A good buffet breakfast all eggs fresly cooked The staff both in the morning and evening were very efficient but also very friendly. The beach was stunning miles of clean sand lots of sunbeds and brolies and indeed service of beach waiters so we did not have to move. The Otter Bar upstairs again was nicely done out and the staff were very friendly and sweet Would recoomend this hotel to either couples single people and especialy families 3 pools and a children's club which they all seemed to enjoy. There were little buggies to give you lifts if needed. A wonderful placeto stay.

Room Tip: Ask for either a suite or villa near the sea and restaurants and bar.

We stayed here for a week after travelling round Oz and New Zealand for our honeymoon. The hotel was superb. Really clean and faultless. Staff were helpful and would always be on hand to answer any questions or help out. The restaurant is AMAZING. The best Thai Red Curry we've ever had! The food was more expensive than some of the other venues in the are but totally worth the extra cash. Gorgeous beach, really untouched. Stunning warm sea! We booked a trip in town too to go snorkelling at the National Park Islands and had the best time. I thought this place was a real hidden gem and would happily return.

Spent 6 nights here relaxing after our 3 week tour of Thailand. Wanted to find a quiet getaway after a travel intensive tour. Booked through Expedia last minute and read a couple of tripadvisor reviews but missed the ones about the kids club. Oh well...still enjoyed our stay. The location was great along a very quiet stretch of beach. Villas were very well laid out and comfortable. Meals were average and noisy (crying babys). There are 2 great restaurants along the beach a short walk away. The first one called The Friendly Restaurant is fantastic. Recently opened with excellent food. The second is The Boat Yard and is good as well. Also lots of options in Khao Lak. I would recommend this resort for family's with younger children.
