This is a repeat visit for us. Le Menara is tucked away in North Khao Lak, a little away from the town centre with its own quiet strip of beach heaven. Fantastic location for those looking for a chilled getaway from the bustle of office/city life. Scenery is postcard perfect everywhere you turn. Rooms are spacious and service friendly. For swimming buffs, this one is for you, complete with an outdoors 120m pool one way (that’s more than double the usual Olympic sized pools).
Imagine you’re in a lap of luxury amidst Castaway settings (that Tom Hanks movie, for those who know it), and you’re there.
Even more notable is their head chef, Mana, at the hotel restaurant, L’Amore. He is an excellent chef, skilled across a range of local and international cuisines. Not only is his technique and execution world class, he consistently delivers wonderful dishes that accompany each other so well. He is also thoughtful, remembers your preferences and is very skilled at tailoring a menu to suit your palate on any given day.
We have stayed at various different five- and six-star hotels around the globe and we would seriously return just to eat with him again!! If you visit, help us say a friendly hello to Mana from Amy and James please.
Adore this scenic place - more so since they are now equipped with an incredible chef at their restaurant so you’d never have to venture far to get great food!
P.S. As with anywhere else in Thailand, bring insect repellent!
