    Location 7.13 /10

    The Sofitel Magic Lagoon Resort and Spa is then situated in Khao-Lak, 45 minutes north of the airport of Phuket.
    There, you can discover the tropical jungle on the back of an elephant or by canoe and see many exotic animals.

    Accommodation

    The Sofitel Magic Lagoon Resort Spa is a big complex built with elegance and originality.
    The swimming pool was built as a river winding through a garden with palm trees and other vegetation; it has numerous beach chairs some of which built with stones in the pool. In the middle of the pool the guests dispose of a bar offering fruit juices, cocktails and ice creams.
    The rooms are villas built in Thai-style architecture. The inconvenience is that these villas are attached so there is a vis-a-vis.
    The main clients of the hotel are German and Austrian, that is why the majority of the staff speaks English.

    Overview

    Built in an European and Thai style, the 319 rooms and suites of more than 323 ft² are warm; the bright colour of the cushions gives a touch of originality as well as the elegance and refinement of the decoration.
    The mattresses are hard and very comfortable.
    Each room is equipped with a sitting area with seat and coffee table with a fruit bowl at the arrival, TV with numerous channels (cable), safe, adjustable air conditioning, minibar with tea and coffee kit, telephone, hairdryer, bathrobes and iron.
    A big terrace equipped with beach chairs and a table with view of the swimming pool and garden; certain terraces have direct access to the swimming pool.
    You will dispose of a personalised room service available 24 hours.
    The beds, the terrace, the outline of the windows are made of oak.

    Food and drink

    This complex offers international cuisine.
    Four restaurants are available; a Japanese restaurant, a Mediterranean restaurant where to taste delicious fish directly from the Andaman Sea; you will also taste Thai cuisine very spicy at times!
    Four bars including 1 lobby-bar and 1 beach bar.
    Breakfast is served buffet style and a room service is available 24 hours.
    Theme evenings are organised regularly to entertain the guests.

    Beach

    The beach offers a lovely simple setting with palm trees all along the place which extend on many miles. You will enjoy a clean fine white sand with some corals.
    This beach disposes of beach chairs with sunshade, however a bit too close to one another, which is a bit uncomfortable.
    You can have fun by practicing badminton, football, petanque, tennis, bow and arrow, volley ball and diving with mask and snorkel.
    Motorised activities are not allowed, as this is a protected site.
    Considering that it is a big complex, you will have the impression that there are not many guests in the hotel. (all at your advantage!)

      The Ramada hotel was entirely rebuilt after the tsunami and has been welcoming guests again for 4 years now. It is an inviting and refined holiday spot with tropical gardens in a corner of paradise. Bordering white sandy beaches not far from the Similan Islands, and with rooms and villas as comfortable as they are modern along with the large choice of activities, make this a great place to stay.
