La Flora Khao Lak Hotel Review – Fun Resort For All

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.

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.

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:

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 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!

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

Check out these latest guest reviews:

“Overall is a high-quality standard resort. Great location near to the shops. The swimming pool is nice & clean. Breakfast was excellent. The room is clean, the design is good, very user-friendly, the bathtub & rain shower are good. The Pool Bar is good, with nice food & good price for happy hour (same price as an outside restaurant) Please support the local restaurant, and massage as well, as they are going through a hard time now Overall I rate it 10/10 despite continuous rain throughout our journey there”.

“Lovely resort. Many swimming pools and nicely situated. Great location near the beach and just a few minutes’ walk to the shops and restaurants. Very clean and well-maintained. Recommended for families!”
