On Thailand’s southwest coast, Khao Lak is in the business of recharging batteries. The beaches are completely unfurnished, so all you get is long runways of powdery white sand. And the waters here attract scuba divers from around the world. The sea is mineral-water clear, so visibility can reach up to 30 metres.
The Waters Khao Lak by Katathani promises peaceful stays. It boasts seven pools, and the beach is only five minutes’ walk away. The best thing about this hotel is the choice of pools. Some of them come with built-in loungers, so it’s easy to swap between relaxing and swimming. There’s a sandy beach nearby, too.
Swim-up rooms are on offer at this place. Inside, the décor is modern, with splashes of coral-blue and pendant lighting. A flatscreen TV and a balcony or terrace comes as standard, too
