Informations Khao Lak

[az_column_text animation_loading= »yes » animation_loading_effects= »move_left » animation_delay= »150″]The Similan islands offer you world class diving and Khao Lak can offer you world class luxury accommodation. The resorts you’ll find in and around Khao Lak can compete with some of the most luxurious from around the world – and at a fraction of the cost.

Most offer swimming pools, in house restaurants and their own spas as well. Enough to keep the whole family busy if you’re travelling with non-divers. Some places even offer child-sitting services for couples who go out diving for the day.[/az_column_text]

[az_column_text animation_loading= »yes » animation_loading_effects= »move_right » animation_delay= »250″]Big Blue diving does not recommend any particular hotel – we know that people have different tastes and different budgets. We offer a free pick-up service from any hotel in the greater Khao Lak area. And at the end of the day, we’re happy to drop you right back off. If you’re traveling with your own equipment, we’ll even take it back to our shop, wash it and bring it back out the next day to save you the trouble of trying to wash it in your room.

Most accommodation in Khao Lak is luxury accommodation and is priced from 1,500b to 12,000b ($45 – $360) per night. There are budget options as well for less than 1,000b per night. We have listed both below.[/az_column_text]

Walkers is run by Andy Walker a Yorkshire man who has been in Thailand since before you were born but still keeps his thick Yorkshire accent! He is a warm and welcoming host who runs his pub downstairs and maintains the rooms upstairs.

Walkers is a great option for those passing through or those who need a couple of nights in comfortable surrounding between dive trips.

The pub downstairs offers a variety of ‘farrang’ (western) options and some fantastic Thai food as well with cold beers and cocktails at affordable prices to wash them down. Private rooms and dorm rooms available.

Please contact us for further details.[/az_column_text]

Happy lagoon is a fantastic option for travellers and holiday makers on more of a budget, or those who would prefer to spend money on diving than their hotel! The hotel is ideally located in Khao Lak close to the beach and shopping districts of the small town.

2 minutes drive from Big Blue Khao Lak office (15mins walk)

45 minutes from hotel to the port

Happy lagoon is a good ‘cheap and cheerful’ option. The location is ideal for those who want to experience the shopping bars and restaurants of Khao Lak and also for those who want to spend their days relaxing on the beach.

Don’t expect luxury from this resort, however, if you simply want a clean room to rest your head this is a very good option.

Enzo is a sure fire hit. The Japanese chef and front of house manager take great pride in producing authentic Japanese cuisine.

They use a combination of fresh local produce and imported speciality items.

There is a fantastic all you can eat Sushi option which is the favourite of the staff at Big Blue.

Jo’s steak house is a hidden gem. Located in Baniang if you don’t know where to look there’s not a good chance of finding it!!

So make sure you get directions before you go and you wont be disappointed.

Imported steak, delicious sides and plenty of red wine makes for a fantastic feed.

The atmosphere is romantic and stylish and the service is great.

Look out for the wasabi-flavoured cream cheese!
