“Great place”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

We found this hotel a couple of years ago when we were staying at Le Meridien hotel and thought that in our next trip to Khao lak we would try this one and we are very pleased we did.
The hotel and grounds are very well laid out around a small inlet of water with walk ways arround it.With the sea just across the road we found the pool nearly empty every day so we set ourselfs up there and had the occasional walk to the sea enjoying the best of both worlds.
We asked for a room in a quiet area and that is exactly what we got.Room was spacious with seperate bathroom little bit on the small side with a walk in shower.
Nice balcony which we used every nightto sit and have a quiet drink and read.
Breakfast was very good with choice of asian or western,(we choose asian every time).
Staff were very helpfull and always smiling.
We hired a car for this trip which was very handy as there is alot to explore in the area. We timed the drive into Khao Lak and it took 18mins.
Khao Lak is a weird town it,s a town in 2 halfs divided by a wide duel carriage way, plenty of bars , restaurants and massage parlors but that is about it.
Anyway back to the hotel we had one evening meal here and it was very good but it was also the most expensive meal we had on our month holiday in Thailand.
There are a few other restaurants nearby the one outside the hotel on the right is very good sorry but cant remember the name.
All in all a great hotel with plenty to offer for familys or couples will be sure to return again.

I spend 15 days on the quiet, very cozy Haddson Recport, and I can only say that this will not be my last time here :)
Before goring I look at the photos on the website, and thought this look god. But when i as there is was so much better, more beautiful and just so wauw!
It´s like being in the jungle, a river is flowing between the small villas and you look at the big pine - and coconut trees.
When you sit on the small terresse and enoy the free coffice that´s in your room and slowing waking up.. it´s so quiet and you are at peace.

The beach.
When you have to go to the beach there are big green towel in the room for beach use. You will have to cross the road to go to the beach that you have all to your self.
If you go to the right you can walk for 10 min before another hotel shows. or you can go to the left and walk for 1 hour before another hotel shows.

Food
There is a lot of small local restaurants along the road. Use them.. the food is so fantastic :)

Room Tip: Go for the villa is you want the best of the best ;)

We stayed here for 3 nights (5 adults, one 2 year old, 2 infants) and enjoyed our stay a lot. It's quite a small resort but during our stay it was fully booked. It didn't seem at all that. There was always sunbeds free by the pool or at the beach. Breakfast was very peaceful with quiet music playing around. The rooms were clean, nicely made.
There are not many tourist at the area. There is only one other resort and there is a handful of small beachside restaurants. We ate one night at the hotel, one night at the Black and White restaurant and the last night the restaurant almost next to the hotel. Good food in all of them.
One of us had pedicure at the resort's spa and thought it was ok.
It was 2200baths for 5 adults from Phuket airport to the hotel by their car and again 2000 baths to Kuraburi where we continued our trip. The taxi would have been around 1500 bath, but we couldn't fit in to one car, so the hotel's car was better value for us.
We were looking for a place to relax, enjoy the sun and swimming and this place was perfect for us. There is a free shuttle bus to Khao Lak at 14:00, so it's easy to visit the small town if needed. The hotel has also bikes which can be used. One day we used them to go to buy some drinks from a small store by the big road. If you want a lot of restaurants, shops etc close by, then this is not for you.

A very nice place! We spend 6 nights at the resort, the first 7 days if a two week family vacation.

First if all a very friendly staff, but also nice pool, nice spa and the beach only 30 meters away. The hotel restaurant even served at the beach (and the pool).

We stayed 2 nights there having a great deal via booking.com. For 1000B, this was just fantastic, very nice villa in a natural surrounding with an excellent pool and a great buffet breakfast. The size of the resort is very reasonable which makes it intimate and the staff is very nice. This is really a perfect place for people looking for peacful holidays not too close from the mass tourism action!
There is really no negative point. the owners have done everything perfectly. Just do not go there if you want to party, go out....

Room Tip: The cooconut villa are less expansive and to our mind better than the villas overlooking the lake

I recently visited Haadson Resort in Khao Lak with my mom and my boyfriend. We had 2 seperate villas, both equally stunning with great amenities including an outdoor shower, an extremely large and comfortable bed, and a cute balcony which overlooks the river, perfect to sit and have a drink whilst taking in the silence of nature.

The staff are all so friendly and welcoming and are available to assist with transport and other local information. They offer a shuttle service in to town to drop and collect you so that you can enjoy the shopping, spas and restaurants on offer.

There is a restaurant at the resort which offers a nice selection of food, we had the vegetable tempura to start with and it was fantastic! I would definitely recommend eating there. The breakfast selection was also very tasty!

The resort is located just meters from the beach, which is absolutely stunning. It was all October stormy skies when we were there but we could still appreciate the beauty - such an untouched and long beach!

All in I think I can speak for all 3 of us when I say we absolutely loved our stay at the resort, I would definitely stay there again.

If you are looking for a beautiful and quiet boutique style resort where you can escape the city and enjoy the sounds of nature, Haadson Resort is a must for you.

Other amenities on offer: beautiful swimming pool, day spa.

Room Tip: All rooms are stunning, but would try get a villa along the river.

The main perk of this place is its boutique nature. This is not one of the resorts for big families with activity groups, hence it is more quiet and relaxed. The fact that it is far away from other places is also a blessing for those looking to relax without tourists and shops and parties. That said, since it is far away from everything else, one needs to travel to get to places, other than the three small, local restaurants around. It would be great had it been beachfront, for better views. Still, rooms are clean, so are the bathrooms. A bit dated but absolutely ok. A decent 3 stars with a good breakfast option. One minus: the bicycles offered were in such deplorable state that I cannot believe they did not change them.
