JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort & Spa Phang Nga Reviews
Excellent customer service Jul 17, 2011
Which hotel you have stayed that made you feel like a princess?
I found it – JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort and Spa!
This luxury hotel is the best hotel I have ever stayed with. It is located 1.5 hour’s drive from Phuket International Airport and 15 minutes from Khao Lak Town. The only way you get to this hotel is by taxi or hotel shuttle – there is no public transport from Phuket Airport to this hotel.
There is a beautiful water fountain right in front of the hotel with at least 4 bell boys waiting to take your bags.
The lobby is gigantic – with a huge waiting area. There is a tour desk/concierge by the side that help the guest to make travel arrangement and to book free shuttle to Khao Lak town. The reception counter is located at the other side of the tour desk; with at least 3 friendly staff with a big smile on their face constantly - helping the guests. When I needed to take the free shuttle to Khao Lak town, they offered me a bottle of water while waiting for the driver!
The reception staff walked me to my room. One thing I have to mention though, this is such a huge property, walking to breakfast was a work out!
The room is huge and clean, all rooms has a private balcony with a swimming pool view. The king size bed was clean and comfortable. Although they had assigned 2 single beds for me ( my collogue supposed to come with me, but she stood me up last minute) I told the reception I was alone and would like to have just one bed – they gave me a king size bed! When I told them my flight was at 5pm, they immediately extended my check out time to 3pm! I hadn’t even opened my mouth!
Bathroom was huge – 2 sinks, 1 shower and 1 bathtub; not to mention the amenities – more then enough.
This hotel provides free wifi services and a flat screen TV in the room, a love seats and day bed in the room. There are also 2 “beach chairs” by the balcony.
The breakfast is served by the Waterfront restaurant with an amazing view of the Andaman Sea. The buffet breakfast was good with lots of variety. There were at least another 5 restaurants and 3 bars in the property however I did not get to try them.
The Quan Spa offers 30% discount from 10am – 3pm. The environment was relaxing and peaceful. I had a great time at Quan Spa. I got a half an hour complimentary Thai massage because they couldn’t arrange the shuttle to down town for me at the time I wanted – Gosh! I was a princess!
The room rate was not expensive considering the service and how luxury the hotel is. I will definitely go back to this hotel very soon.
