Where Your Soul Blossoms
Amazing and beautiful Thailand. Is this your next travel destination? How about visiting Southern Thailand and the incredibly stunning region of Khao Lak?
I recently spent time in this region and was wowed by its beauty. Pristine beaches, swaying palm trees, national parks, waterfalls, unspoiled islands, excellent cuisine and more.
For that special resort holiday for all the family, I can recommend La Flora Resort & Spa – a 4.5-star gem located on Bang Niang Beach overlooking the sparkling blue waters of the Andaman Sea. This is my review of La Flora Khao Lak Hotel.

Location of La Flora Hotel Thailand
Map of La Flora Khao Lak
Phuket International Airport is 80 km from La Flora Khao Lak which takes on average around 1 – 1.5 hours depending on traffic.
La Flora is a 5-minute drive from Khao Lak centre but is well located with many bars and restaurants within walking distance of the hotel.
La Flora is located on Bang Niang Beach.
Review of the award-winning La Flora Khao Lak
As you pull up at the entrance and walk up the stairs to the cool vibe of the Lobby your eyes are drawn to the view towards the accommodation and what awaits you. There is always a certain amount of excitement when you arrive at a new hotel, although you probably have googled the hotel’s gallery before arriving, it is that anticipation of seeing your room and the resort facilities – the restaurant, bar and spa and knowing that you are now on holidays and you are in an exotic resort and spa in southern Thailand.
You collect your key and head to your room, open your door and go ahhh! If you are like me I take my camera out and start shooting away before I make myself at home and have my things spread out all over the place. I then head to the bar and depending on what time of the day it is I either order a cocktail or a mocktail. Then I explore all the facilities.
La Flora wows you right from the start. Is it that canal swimming pool that meanders through the resort or is it the beach and bar area?
Accommodation at La Flora
254 rooms are spread over the resort in three areas:
Poolside wing with deluxe rooms and deluxe pool access rooms.
- Seaside wing which has deluxe seaside and seaside pool access rooms
- Flora wing which has Flora rooms, pool access rooms and 2 bedroom rooms.
Whatever wing you book you will enjoy fresh tropical contemporary design depicting Southern Thailand traditions. If you have booked the pool access rooms you have a private deck that leads out to the canal-like swimming pool.
The rooms are very spacious with a very comfortable lounge area beside the king-size bed.
The bathrooms are spacious with a shower, and some have a shower and a bath and are all decorated in contemporary design.
Rooms come with a large refrigerator and a small mini bar fridge. The safe is located in a drawer and accessed by the top. Tea and coffee-making facilities and complimentary water is provided.
The 2 bedroom family room is one of the largest I have ever seen in a hotel. The 2nd bedroom has a queen size and single bed. What more could a family want!
Dining at La Flora
For dining, nothing beats the Sire Restaurant which is open from 6.30 am to midnight with its stunning sea views.
Not only do they have delicious Thai cuisine but they offer international dishes as well.
Head to the Breeze Bar from 8 am to midnight for a light snack and drinks. If you love sunset drinks this is the place to be!

La Flora – Living With Nature
What is really close to my heart is when I see hotels working with the local community and putting sustainability programs in place. It was great to see that La Flora has achieved a Gold Certificate from Travel Life for their ZERO project.
What does ZERO stand for?
- Z – less waste and 100% waste sorting and recycling
- E – Energy savings – led lighting, no air-conditioners instead a cooling system has been implemented to reduce energy consumption, solar cell lamps for pathway lighting
- R – reduced use of plastics, no straws, glass bottles of water, the use of wood and biodegradable products
- O – our place care which includes monthly beach clean-ups, coral reef replantation, spa products are made by the local community, eco-friendly cleaning products, and floating ambulances located at Surin and Similan Islands
