Merlin Resort

We are currently in Phuket and just found out that Thomas Cook have moved our hotel in Khao Lak. We are supposed to stay at Sentido Graceland, but now have been moved to the Merlin Resort. Does anyone know why we may have been moved from Graceland? Also does anyone know what Merlin is like? The travel agents are saying they are like for like and we are still in a swim up room.

Thanks

When are you going to Khao Lak? If it is in the near future it could be that Gracelands may not have enough guests as it is the most northerly resort in Khao Lak in a lovely but isolated location with not much in the way of nearby beach restaurants open in the Wet Season.

The Merlin was the first 4* resort in Khao Lak and is a large resort with a recent block added. The swim up or pool access rooms are excellent. It is more traditional Thai style than Gracelands and in an excellent location on Khao Lak Beach, the first beach you reach coming from Phuket. There are only a handful of other resorts along this stretch of beach but a growing number of restaurants, bars and shops in the area immediately nearby and up on the highway a few minutes away. The main township of Gang La On with its many restaurants, bars and shops is just 10 minutes away over the mountain by hotel shuttle or taxi.

Hope this helps.
