La Vela is the new star on the Khao Lak hotel scene, cool and so chic…
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. It is rather cool and 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.
- Attractive beach front
- Beach club with regular DJ and cool vibes
- Kokulo Restaurant
- Interchange dining with La Flora and Casa de La Flora hotels
- Non-motorised water sports (subject to weather conditions)
La Vela Khao Lak offers 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. A very welcome addition to our Khao Lak selection.
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.

Khao Lak Thailand is located on the mainland facing the Andaman Sea, linked to the island of Phuket by a causeway bridge. Come to Khao Lak Thailand for the glorious beaches with the stunning Khao Sok National Park in the background. You fly into Phuket and then it is a scenic 60-minute road transfer along the coast.

COVID-19 - Updated Information – March 2023.
Virtually all countries worldwide have relaxed their protocols on Covid and there are very few restrictions. However, most countries review this on a month-by-month basis and will take immediate action should cases return or increase.
As a general statement, we would say travel is back to about 90% of its 2019 pre-covid levels – although with maybe less staff than before. This can particularly apply to airports with check-in teams and baggage handlers, and also in hotels. If you are a long-time repeat visitor to a specific hotel it is quite possible you might know your way around the property better than the newly appointed staff – smile and maybe even try to assist!

All price guides are Per Person Sharing Double Room (Entry level), based on travel between May and/or June when prices are generally at their lowest and include promotional offers. Supplements will probably apply at other times, particularly mid-summer in the Med, and for rooms and/or transfers arranged for single travellers.
For example, the Caribbean and Indian Ocean prices for winter can be approximately double the May - June level and about 50% more in Asia. For the Mediterranean & Canary Islands, Caribbean, Arabia and the Indian Ocean (except Sri Lanka) price guides generally include airfare and transfers.
