Haadson Resort3.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Spent 25 nights here in May. Very quiet, but exactly what we wanted. Had a villa, which was also perfect for us. Enough room inside to spend the lots of rainy, windy days we had relaxing. Unfortunately we had the edge of a cyclone, so the beaches were unsafe for swimming after the first week and a half and it rained most days, but when we first arrived it was great. I enjoyed the beach directly opposite the hotel as it was calm and clean. Obviously this does not apply to monsoon/cyclone time. Hotel pool big enough and 2.0 metres in the deep end, so great for swimming. Restaurant was reasonable, but the variety of Western food was not so great for a long stay like ours. After two weeks, one does feel like home food! Breakfast the normal as per the better hotels in Thailand, fresh fruit, Continental and bacon and eggs etc available every day. A bit out of the way if you do not have own transport, but the resort does provide a free shuttle into Khao Lak Centre every day, so one is not totally stuck at the resort. We hired a scooter hasslefree from the hotel and toured everywhere. We had a great time, irrespective of the weather. Staff were very friendly and eager to help. A big thumbsup to the Haadson. We had a great stay here and would stay here again if we went back to Khao Lak.
The facilities are great. You get a nature vibe, and the ocean is right at the front of the hotel. We originally were only going stay here for one night, but ended up stay here for our entire stay in Khao Lak. The staff was friendly, and very accommodating. They took great care of us. The breakfast was delicious. My father is vegan and they were very accommodating to that as well. I highly recommend that you stay here!
Stayed for 4 days/3 nights and for the price this is a great place located directly across a quiet beachfront road from a beautiful long stretch of uncrowded sandy beach. The units are bungalow and 4-plex style set in a beautiful jungle like setting with canals. We stayed in a top floor unit, which I booked on short notice. It was spacious with covered balcony/lanai, included fridge, A/C, spotty-wifi, bath with walk-in shower and a larger bed. By Thai standards it was clean, though my girlfriend complained the bath could have been cleaner, that was pretty standard throughout Thailand and Cambodia though, our other destination. Beds are a little hard, but typical for Thailand. The location and grounds were really nice, a very natural jungle like setting. Nice pool area, spa facilities (didn't try) and restaurant. We spent most of our time at the beach with the hotel provided beach chairs & umbrellas, totally relaxing and great swimming too. Just a short walk north are several beachfront restaurants and massage places, all of which we enjoyed, can't beat the setting. Additionally the open air restaurant and included breakfast were great and reasonably priced by hotel standards. This is a quieter area, not in Khao Lak center. There is a free shuttle in the afternoon to Khao Lak Center but we took a taxi for an evening out, 400 bht round trip I think, don't quote me on that though;-) The staff was excellent, spoke English well in our case, and do their best to accommodate their guests. I wonder sometimes about people's expectations in relation to what you pay for a place. From a US dollar standpoint at around $75/nt, I felt it's a great value for the beautiful setting. Would definitely go back.
Only an overnight stay. Room was OK; comfortable bed in a good size room. Bathroom has had makeover 2 or 3 years ago, but typical local standards ... poor. Tiled over floor except shower, and raised floor 25 to 30mm. Instead of removing or replacing WC, they go around it. End result is a toilet that is too low, you don't notice till you sit on it .... would be difficult for handicapped. Grounds and garden very nice and well maintained; but timber decking around pool and on walkways is in poor condition. Breakfast excellent. We also ate at the restaurant at night .. limited international but reasonably priced. Beer is cold and well priced. Overall; reasonable value for the cost (3,000 high season).
We have stayed here repeatedly since 2007 - each time we return something is new or improved - they strive to please. The staff is helpful and gracious, the restaurant has something for everyone. This trip we got to see their new tent accommodations. We would love to return and give them a try - maybe bring our grandson.
Met some German couples while staying at e sentido Graceland resort. They all spoke o highly of his resort so we visited to consider for our next holiday. Great setup, very friendly small resort, seems so isolated as is on its own on the beach with forget behind it. Not my style long term, not a hi tech hotel but still it had a great feel, and some Nic rooms. I would consider this for a Few days, plenty of beach bars and cafes within 5-10 min walk on the beach
We stayed at Haadson from the 26th December 2016 to 6th January 2017. What a fantastic place, tranquil, relaxed although still child friendly ( there with our 5 year old). Different from the normal 'cram them in' resorts along that coast. Everything beautifully kept and the staff outstanding. Food, pool, beach all brilliant x
We stayed here for one night at the Tent Villa. The room design was nice and functional. During our stay, the hotel had problem with no internet connection but it was not issue for us. The location of the hotel was quiet and nice beach for swim. Please improve the quality of breakfast by provide more variety of food.
If you want glitz and modern stuff dont bother to read on.....However if you like miles of empty(almost)stunning beaches and a jungle type hotel with gentle sounds and lovely staff this is for you. No where is perfect but this is close! from the anti bug incense at the front door to the fragrant oil burner inside and the tented bed how romantic, the bathroom has an inner and an outer area, inner has the shower and loo wash hand basin etc.The outer is a bathroom literally, an enclosed bath area with roof and gaps near the roof to see the trees. Our room was situated near a salt lagoon there are several and not far from the tree surrounded swimming pool which was just amazing,, the beach is literally 20 steps from the front entrance and you can eat lunch/dinner overlooking the beach and the bay There is a big stunning sensitori hotel about a quarter of a mile away but the guests dont seem to wander much!! Eating is great in the area,there are about 12 small restaurants within 10 minutes walk but two of them particularly have great food. The bangsak kitchen and the bangsak gardens restaurants (no relations) dont look much but have great service and authentic Thai food, I had green curry at the bansak kitchen and it was one of the best examples I have ever had, our meals at these two never topped much more than 700 baht which is roughly £16 pounds in total for a shared starter a main course each, rice, a large beer and two glasses of wine! There is a complimentary shuttle to the market three times a week and we enjoyed that bit of haggling for suff This is a great place in a great location so dont tell too many people as we would like to go back some time!!!
The place is well situated right next to the beach and the views are amazing! The restaurant has even better views and we spent most of our time there and in the pool. All in all, great time however, be careful and confirm the booking as they had overbooked. We did get an upgrade on one room and downgrade on the other but all in all a good stay.
