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
