About Khao Lak
The village of Khao Lak with just a sprinkling of hotels, restaurants and shops offers peace and serenity. Nestled between the balmy Andaman Sea and the raw beauty of Khao Lak National Park, the tranquil Regeneration in the area has seen a host of deluxe resorts, boutique hotels and traditional bungalows built sympathetically to retain its untouched charm and laid back spirit. With a picture postcard landscape of enchanting waterfalls and mysterious temple caves combined with shimmering shores and natural wildlife, it is an idyllic hideaway where you can unwind in stunning surroundings. A gateway to some of the top dive areas in southern Thailand, Khao Lak originally started as a diving destination, with people drawn by the enchanting Similan and Surin Islands. With colorful coral gardens and an underwater world teeming with anemones in a kaleidoscope of reds, yellows and blues, you are also likely to encounter white tip sharks, rays, snappers, barracudas and turtles in the shimmering water that lap the glittering shores. Spend your days listening to the sound of the surf as you run your fingers through the soft sands, perhaps lying under the shade of the palms and caesarians pine trees that lace the beach or create your own adventure in the enchanting rainforest filled with wildlife and vibrant color.
