Rakkawan Residence is tucked away just behind the main road in Khao Lak centre.
Look for a small road between a Thai restaurant called ‘Kung Seafood’ and a colourful fresh fruit stall. Around 50m from the main road you will find the entrance to Rakkawan Residence.
Rakkawan Residence provides Khao Lak accommodation that is perfectly situated in the middle of the town centre. It is no more than a ten minute leisurely stroll to Nang Thong beach.
On the way you can check out all the dinner options you have in town.
Rakkkawan Residence is just a stones throw from many of the best restaurants, bars, shops, travel agents and scuba diving centres.
If you need any help or advice with arranging day trips then feel free to ask in reception.
Rakkawan Residence is a cosmopolitan ‘loft-style’ hotel, fully equipped with all the modern amenities. Thick pillars, lots of plants and a brushed concrete finish make for a unique and interesting style.
The Owner, Khun Somrak put safety and security as a number one priority when designing his Khao Lak hotel. CCTV is installed all around the building and your valuables can be kept in a safe behind reception. Smoke detectors are in every hotel room and there are manual fire alarms and fire extinguishers clearly marked.
Khun Somrak and his wife were born, raised and have lived all their lives in Southern Thailand. They met at University in Songklah, Hat Yai; capital of the South. They married and moved to Khao Lak as soon as they finished their studies.
They have lived here for over 20 years and watched Khao Lak grow from just one small road and a single resort, to the popular tourist destination it is today.
Khao Lak literally means Lak Mountain. 20 years ago this land would have just been jungle at the foot of the mountain. Early mornings you can open your window and you can still hear many birds and animals.
As the town grew, their land became more valuable and they wondered what they could do with it. As it is slightly hidden behind the main road they decided it was not a good place for a restaurant. But for the same reason this location was perfect to build some small Khao Lak accommodation.
Rakkawan Residence has a real family feel to it. Khun Somrak asked one of his close friends from university to design his ‘loft-style’ hotel, as he wanted someone he could trust to build it right the first time round.
The seafood restaurant next door is run by his Sister. And now, Somrak is training his eldest Daughter Mild to manage the Hotel. When you stay here you will become a family friend. Everybody at Rakkawan Residence will do their best to make you feel at home and comfortable.
