(03/10/22) Marriott has expanded its portfolio of hotels in Thailand with the opening of an all-suite JW Marriott resort on Khuk Khak Beach in Khao Lak.
The family-oriented resort, just an hour’s drive north of Phuket, offers a selection of two-bedroom suites, designed to foster togetherness through experiences such as culinary workshops and educational activities at the shark nursery and conservation project.
The JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort Suites will share the extensive facilities of JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort & Spa, including the Aqua Play Zone, a fully-equipped fitness center, racket sports, the Kids Club and Quan Spa.

“The opening of JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort Suites, with its spacious accommodation and outstanding service, will complement our existing property in Khao Lak, enabling all guests to come together and create meaningful connections,” said Jakob Helgen, Area Vice President – Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia & Myanmar, Marriott International. “As the world starts to travel again, this new opening will further stimulate the country’s tourism sector and attract families back to the land of smiles.”
The resort’s 52 two-bedroom suites range in size from 89 to 111-sqm with contemporary living areas and private terraces or balconies that overlook the natural tropical surroundings.
On the ground floor, a collection of pool access suites allows guests to step straight into the inviting waters of one of Southeast Asia’s longest swimming pools – a sparkling 2.4 kilometer-long lagoon that features a water slide, wave pool, and even an aqua trampoline.
Young guests staying in the pool access suites can choose to enjoy the thrill of being transported to their room by boat, one of the resort’s Family by JW experiences, and all ages can look out for the resort’s Coconut Boat which will cruise around the lagoon every day loaded with fresh, ice-cold coconuts.
The resort’s collection of 11 restaurants and bars are designed to tempt guests with an extensive array of casual and formal dining choices ranging from traditional Thai to Japanese and Italian cuisines.
“I am delighted to unveil JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort Suites and to welcome travelers from around the world,” said Abhimanyu Singh, General Manager, JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort Suites. “The JW Marriott brand focuses on what matters most in life, connecting with our loved ones and enriching the mind, body and spirit. Our new JW Marriott Resort Suites concept will provide the space for people to come together and share meaningful moments.”
