Thailand Dive Holidays

Kao Lak Palm Garden

The Palm Garden Resort Khao Lak is located in Khao Lak, amidst a beautiful tropical garden on the west coast of Thailand’s mainland.

Home to white sandy beaches as far as the eye can see, this region is nestled in a picturesque landscape at the bottom of a tropical mountain side.

It is bordered in the south by the Khao Lak National Park and the famous Khao Sok National Park in the north. Khao Lak is the ideal starting point for day trips to the Similan Islands, or a liveaboard trip to Richelieu Rock, Koh Tachai and Koh Bon. 

Transfers: around 1 hour from Phuket Airport

Hotel Services/Facilities: The pool area features a waterfall and jacuzzi and is not only an ideal place to spend your day sunbathing, but it is also great for those who are learning to dive. With a maximum depth of 3 metres, it is an ideal place to learn the skills that you need to dive.

At Reception guests can book tours, rent vehicles, or get some useful local tips from English speaking staff. The Resort offers traditional Thai massage, aroma massage and other spa treatments in your room, or at the spacious sala in the tropical palm garden.

Room Facilities: The Thai style bungalows of the Palm Garden Resort are built around a large, 3m deep scuba training pool with waterfall and Jacuzzi.

They consist of two separate, spacious rooms. Each bungalow has its own terrace and is equipped with everything you need for a relaxing stay. 

The bungalows are comfortably furnished for the needs of divers with air conditioning, TV, wireless internet connection, minibar, safe, charging station and en-suite bathroom with hot water shower.

All bungalows have either a double bed or two single beds. The private terrace is a peaceful place to enjoy your breakfast in the morning sun. 

Seabees Dive Centre is a PADI 5 Star Dive Centre, catering for beginners and experienced divers alike. 

The dive centre is on-site at the Palm Garden Resort with day boats departing from Tap Lamu. Whether you’re a diver or snokeller, you’ll be ideally placed to discover the fascinating underwater world in the Similan Islands.
