Devasom Khao Lak Beach Resort & Villas 

Where the past is reborn

This lagoon resort is inspired by forgotten opulence that hails back to a little-known time in South-East Asia.

This beachfront resort is about pure escapism. It’s sister to the award-winning boutique hotel, Devasom Hua Hin, and is influenced by the same nostalgic themes but with a difference. This hotel takes inspiration from the unsung opulence of 6th- and 7th-century South-East Asia and the resort’s location nestled between a near-empty beach and a natural lagoon adds plenty of exclusivity. Add a heavenly spa and you have all the elements of the perfect Thai island escape.

Why we love Devasom Khao Lak Beach Resort & Villas

  • This hideaway resort is set between the longest stretch of sand in laidback Khao Lak and a beautiful natural lagoon

  • The graceful, harmonious design pays homage to the architecture and culture of a lost city that flourished here 1,400 years ago

  • It has two award-winning restaurants – one Thai, one beachside grill – plus an irresistible selection of private dining options

  • The inviting list of experiences stretches from mindfulness and yoga sessions to forest bathing
