Description & Location

The new rising star in Khao Lak and sister hotel to the established La Flora and Casa de La Flora. La Vela Khao Lak opened in May 2017, and became fully operational by October 2017. The style is ultra contemporary, with clean lines. The emphasis on rather cool chic. It is located on Bang Niang Beach, one of the best in the region.

Khao Lak village is 5 minutes by taxi. There are several restaurant options within walking distance. Phuket Airport is a scenic 70 minutes drive south.


La Vela Khao Lak has a selection of 181 rooms.

Each is spacious with 52 sqm of living space. They are bright & modern, with the warmth of Thailand coming in the subtle colour contrasts.

The rooms are split between two wings: Poolside and Oceanside. The Poolside is the more family focused area, with the Oceanside intended for couples.

Your choices are:

Deluxe Poolside – Located on the 2nd to 5th Floors of Poolside

Deluxe Ocean Side -Upper Floors.

Family rooms – Pool Side – These can accommodate two adults and two children and have partitioned living area.(There are only 24 of these, so early booking essential).

Pool Access Rooms – Located on the ground floor of Poolside Wing

Pool Access Grand – Located on the ground floor of the Oceanside Wing.

Facilities and Activities

Four swimming pools and one kids pool
Attractive beach front
Beach club with regular DJ and cool vibes
Kokulo Restaurant
Fitness centre
Kids play room
Interchange dining with La Flora and Casa de La Flora hotels
Non motorised water sports (subject to weather conditions)


La Vela Khao Lak is a very welcome addition to our Khao Lak selection. Superb accommodation and good location, with dining options close by. The idea is to subtly separate the two areas between family and adults, but with mingling space where the two come together. Personally we think it is ideal for those with slightly older children who have graduated beyond the face painting stage.

Khao Lak is generally at its best weather wise Mid November through to  early May, when the days are usually bright and sunny and the seas generally calm. From June to October, the red flag tends to appear more often, with some beach erosion and higher waves. During these months some village shops/restaurants will either close or operate on reduced hours.

Khao Lak can easily be combined with tours around Thailand.

Think of 3 nights in Bangkok where we would suggest Chatrium Riverside. Followed by 3 nights in Chiang Mai at Na Nirand. Then fly straight from Chiang Mai to Phuket with a simple road transfer up to La Vela for 6 nights of beach relaxation.
