Kantary Beach Villas & Suites - what a place! Situated in Khao Lak but away from the heart of it is this gorgeous resort. Considered a four stay resort it really should be upgraded to a five. There is the choice between villas and actual suites. Having been here twice, the villa is what we stayed in. We actually came 2 years ago on a Scoopon voucher from Australia. We stayed 8 nights and fell so in love with Kantary that this time we chose to stay 20! It is rather inexpensive to stay but you wouldn't know that! Next time I am thinking that we will stay 28 nights :-) The resort is spacious with many standalone villas and multiple suites situated in separate complexes. It is located right on the beach and the view from Cafe Andaman every day is just breathtaking. Each villa has its own separate lounge to bedroom; there is a lovely bathroom with an outdoor shower and kitchen facilities offering cutlery, crockery, microwave, water urn and decent size fridge - great for storing your bevies in. Each Villa has a covered patio with table and chairs - great for relaxing on. Villas are clean and very roomy. Also each villa has two split system air conditioners – 1 in the lounge and the other in the bedroom that work super efficiently! There are 3 main pools and the pool bar can be quite refreshing - not just for a swim but a drink also! You also have a pristine beach with a coastline that stretches for as far as the eye can see. Great for walking along or sunbaking on. Massage huts are also located on the beachfront and it can be ever so relaxing having a massage while listening to the waves and feeling the breeze. Highly recommended! Staff are ever so friendly and go out of their way and Nicholai is an awesome addition to the team. He greeted us upon arrival and ensured our check-in went smoothly. Make sure you visit Nong in the upstairs Otters Bar for a late night drink too! Wifi is available throughout the resort and there is an internet room if required. The buffet breakfast held in Café Andaman will see that you are not feeling hungry again til tea time and the variety of choice is huge. We also enjoyed the dinner buffet (especially the steak) which is offered Tuesday and Saturday nights. There are washing machines to clean your clothes, a mini mart on site that has all the basics you need like water, milk, soft drinks and alcohol, plus many other things too. Kantary also offers free shuttle buses daily into Khao Lak town or Bang Niang markets – just be sure you get to the lobby around 8.30am to get a number as places fill very quickly once called from 9am. The shuttle runs 3 times a day into Khao Lak and returns 3 times allowing plenty of exploration depending on where you choose to stop. Scooters can also be hired from the lobby area (as far as I know) but check it out if that is how you decide to get around. All in all Kantary has everything you require – whist it a bit away from actual Khao Lak town that is part of the charm. If you want to be a part of the action then maybe this isn’t the place for you to stay. Part of its appeal is how relaxing it is to stay here and once you see just how gorgeous it is you might think the same as me! Please remember it is a four stay resort so not everything is 100% perfect but these things are so insignificant that they will not even make a blip on your radar. It was great to see more families here this year than the last time we stayed and I can only assume that will increase when people see how great it is. Also it was awesome to see Thailand’s underprivileged children visiting and having a ball in the pool (both the kids pool and near the pool bar). I love this resort and upon returning to Thailand in the future wouldn’t wish to stay anywhere else. Thank Kantary for yet another magical stay – see you soon hopefully!!
Just arrived back after an amazing 10 nights of pure bliss and relaxation. Thank you to all the friendly and helpful staff that made our stay very pleasurable. The villa we had was lovely and so well equipped with heaps of room which made it feel like our home away from home. Daily housekeeping was great and onelovely lady even made my extra towels that I requested into a dog with some of my sunnies on it left on the bed which I thought was very funny :) Special thanks to TU for your wonderful hospitality and service. The Buffet breakfast was YUM and we also enjoyed the Pasta Buffett and Steak Buffett at Café Andaman. Well done TU the food was all very enjoyable. (Missing the extra crispy bacon which was Yum ) If you want a relaxing holiday away from the crowds this is the place. AMAZING Beach which we enjoyed swimming in as well as the other pools on offer at Kantary. There is also some nice restaurants along the beach just a short stroll from the hotel which are also lovely. We love Khao Lak , this is our second time there and it wont be our last, however first time at this hotel and cant wait to come back. THANK YOU Kantary for a lovely holiday . THANKS again TU ...
We had booked for 8 nights, liked it so much stayed for another 8 nights. A beach 4 pools plenty for water to choose. The breakfast has a very good choice, the egg chef is amazing so fast with the orders. The staff in the restaurant were excellent. The shuttle bus took you into town, 3 times a day to choose from, is a return shuttle. The rooms were huge. A super king bed, with a separate lounge area. I will stay here again. Cheers Karen
The Villa was clean and spacious with separate living area to bedroom. WiFi worked all over resort. Clean beach. Staff were very friendly if not a bit shy. Just be nice and patient with your language (English) and you will be rewarded with best possible service. Buffet is good as is breakfast buffet. Main menu is a bit monotonous. Courtesy bus to the main village daily but must be booked on day of use. Be early as some times are popular. I have a special mention for some staff who made my 14 day stay more enjoyable by just being so helpful and polite. I had a daily massage and by the time I left my body was free of knotted and tight muscles thank so much to the lovely lady Thi. She really is an exponent of the art of massage. Also was the manager of the Otters cocktail bar. Nong is a great manager. His politeness and his capacity to manages his staff so that the service is ongoing and prompt. Thank you Nong. (I hope I have spelt your name correctly). The overall Manager of food and beverages is TUI. His attention to detail and daily friendly greeting is something that he should be complimented for. Tui I look forward to my return and you assistance in the future. Thank you. G
We booked a room for 3 persons but we were surprised when we saw that the third person had to sleep on a sofa not convertible. It was painful for the back of this person. The really nice manager tried to help but he told us that there is no room with 3 bed (or a double bed + 1 bed). It's a really bad point !
We have just returned from a 2 week stay at Kantary Beach Hotel. We wanted a relaxing holiday without doing any sightseeing or too much driving around and we got just what we wanted. We both had a massage every day with the lovely ladies beside the beach. Tried the cocktails during the happy hour every night and got great service with the bar manager Nong. We found all the staff very friendly. A little shy at first but after they get to know you and you make an effort to be nice, you couldn't ask for better. Organisation at the resort is efficient and the shuttle bus is free and on time with a great driver. Our garden villa was perfect. Beach is beautiful and sunsets stunning. The only negative we found is the food was a too westernised and would have liked more Thai dishes. The Similan Restaurant was closed so we couldn't try that. I recommend eating at some places in Khao Lak and the Markets at Baan Niang are a great place to eat local food.
My partner and I have been staying here for the past few days, and from the second we arrived we were greeted and helped with every request we needed. Our villa came with all necessities, more than enough room for a couple looking to make the best of their time as well as an outdoor shower which was a great touch. Being right on the pristine beach with great pools and bar/restaurants right next to it, relaxing was so easy and we were well fed with great food. Staff went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and had a great time, even stopping to chat with us about our stay and what we were doing in Thailand. We will be definitely coming back again next time we're in the area, we loved it here! - Ben
Fantastic again! We have now been visiting Kantary Beach for 7 years and as always it is great. Staff are wonderful as is the service. All very friendly. We always have a Villa which has a lot of space with an outside shower. The beach is great for a long walk and there are several beach restaurants to the right of the hotel. Also not far either in a Tuk Tuk or in the hotel shuttle in to town for shops, bars and restaurants. Looking forward to next year already.
From the minute I arrived I was made feel welcome. My stay was all I Invisaged.Wonderful clean and comfortable villa, fresh and delicious meals, pools of your choice , the beautiful sea of soft blues and magestic sunsets made for a most relaxed and enjoyable 10 days. The staff were ever so accomadating and very friendly, nothing was bother Mr Tu was most helpful with suggestions about local attractions and resort happenings. A most enjoyable holiday for those who appreciate serenity. Lorraine Australia
