Our Khao Lak Hotel

Rakkawan Residence provides Khao Lak accommodation that is perfectly situated in the middle of the town centre

City Centre Location

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.

Perfectly Situated

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.

Close to the Action

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.

Style and Safety

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.

Everything You Need

The large open reception area is far enough from the main road for you to quietly enjoy your complimentary breakfast and morning coffee. There is free WiFi throughout the Hotel. Rooms are air conditioned and equipped with LED cable TVs and a fridge. TVs have HDMI and USB inputs if you want to bring your own movies.

Airport Transfers

At Rakkawan Residence we can provide an airport taxi service for only 1,400 THB. We can organise taxis to all the local sights or you can rent a motorbike or bicycle and explore by yourself. If you are travelling elsewhere we can help you with your onward bus and train tickets.


Check-in any time after 2pm (ask us if you need to arrive earlier) and check out before 12pm. To make your life easier you can have a late checkout for just 100 THB extra an hour. If you would like to walk around Khao Lak on your last day, we can look after your bags in reception.


We provide a Laundry service in the hotel. Breakfast will be American style or Thai style. If you are Vegetarian or have any other requests then just ask. Lunch and Dinner can be ordered to the reception from Kung Seafood or if you want to try all the local delicacies then we can give you lots of good recommendations for the best Khao Lak restaurants.

Rakkawan Family

A Family Business

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 Hotel at Lak Mountain

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.

A warm welcome

Hope you Feel at Home

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.
