What’s new, pussycat?
Khao Lak’s entrepreneurs have also been busy during the low season – here’s a few recent changes…
NEW OWNERS: Island Seafood
Located at the end of the small shopping plaza directly opposite the entrance to the Mukdara Beach Resort (on ‘Food St.’ the road leading to Bang Niang Beach from Highway 4). Amiable new owner Joseph and his Thai partner “Khun Oot have breathed new life into this attractive garden-dining establishment, and the new restaurant – specialising in seafood of course – is already showing promise.
One of the few restaurants in Khao Lak outside of a resort where you can dine outdoors in a garden setting. Heck, they even have their own mini-waterfall!”
NEW LOCATION: Peter Bar, Nang Thong Beach
This popular beach bar has moved to a beautiful new beach front location just north of The Sands resort in central Khao Lak. With a beach bar, good restaurant, massage and a view like this, it promises to be one of the smash hits of the coming 2014/15 high season.
NEW BUSINESS: Combat 360X
Combat 360X is an MMA, Grappling and Strength and Conditioning Gym/Program offering a variety of classes including Mixed Martial Arts, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Grappling, Fitness / Cross Training and Yoga. Located on the eastern side of Highway 4 nearby Khuk Khak police station they also have an on site supplement and equipment shop.
Combat 360X limits their classes to a maximum of ten people so students receive plenty of face-to-face time with their instructor, and a one-on-one personal trainer option is even available – so there’s no excuse for putting on the extra pounds during your stay in Khao Lak!
COMING SOON: The Haven Resort
Construction is well under way on The Haven, a new beach front resort taking shape at the southernmost end of Khuk Khak Beach. Scheduled for completion in February 2015,The Haven is the latest venture from the owners of the well-respected Khao Lak Bhandari & Khao Lak Oriental resorts on Nang Thong Beach.
Promising 110 spacious, luxury rooms and suites – and Khao Lak’s ‘ultimate infinity poolsʼ – The Haven looks set to be a popular addition to Khao Lak’s booming accommodation sector.
