They can also unleash their creativity with Wall Painting sessions, as they swap paper and pens for a vast canvas, or uncover arts & crafts, aquatic adventures, and discovery walks with the daily Kids’ Club Activities. Then, at the end of the day, gather around a fire pit on the beach for Marshmallow Toasting.


For guests who are passionate about sustainability, the innovative Art of Trash workshops combine creativity with sustainability as debris and driftwood from the shore are turned into stunning sculptures. From Q2 2023, guests can also visit the Shark Nursery, a dedicated marine sanctuary that connects all ages with the Andaman Sea’s threatened bamboo sharks. Join the fully trained team of conservationists and find out how they nurture the sharks, from the incubation of eggs to the time of release.

Active Experiences

Find physical fulfilment on your vacation with the resort’s active experiences. Join the Muay Thai instructor and learn the art of Thai boxing, a colourful martial art steeped in tradition.

Alternatively, a Bike Tour can reveal the many wonders of Khao Lak, including local villages, Chong Fah Waterfall, Bang Niang Market, and even the chance to present alms to Buddhist monks at the nearby temple. Mindfulness can also be achieved with a Floating Yoga class, as you stretch your body and achieve physical and spiritual equilibrium on the resort’s purpose-built floating yoga platforms.
