Apsara Beachfront Resort & Villa

Khao Lak - Thailand


Apsara is a wonderfully laid back resort on the beautiful Pakarang Beach, amongst an idyllic tropical landscape of dazzling lagoons, mangrove forests and jungle-covered mountains.

Two distinct areas are connected by a bridge: the Resort Zone is more lively, popular with families, while the quieter Villa Zone offers privacy and seclusion for couples and honeymooners.

The vibe is low key and friendly, with a warm welcome extended to all guests, and the staff are lovely. An optional all-inclusive package offers great value for money, and the location is quiet but still within easy reach of Khao Lak town.
