JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort & Spa, the pioneering retreat in southern Thailand, has unveiled a series of new landmark beachfront pool villas, completing its transformative 18-month renovation and introducing a new era of luxurious accommodation to this compelling destination.Inspired by traditional southern Thai homes, the standalone villas are nestled directly on the soft sands of Khuk Khak Beach, overlooking the Andaman Sea. Two options are available: two one-bedroom villas each featuring bright, naturally-lit living spaces with contemporary furnishings, spa-inspired bathrooms and extensive outdoor space, including a private pool. These spacious sanctuaries are perfectly suited to a wide range of vacation types, from family getaways to romantic escapes and heavenly honeymoons.

Alternatively, the breath-taking two-bedroom villa is the ultimate luxury retreat. Spanning 213 square meters of elegant indoor and outdoor space, with a master king bedroom and a twin bedroom for children, extended family or friends, this beautiful beachfront residence features two separate infinity pools – ideal for daytime relaxation. This home-away-from-home sets the stage for loved ones to foster meaningful connections and make memories that last a lifetime.

All three villas boast sleek wooden floors, dark wooden furniture and authentic Thai artworks, warmly embracing thelocal aesthetic, whilst also blending seamlessly with state-of-the-art technology including smart TVs, integrated USB ports, and high-speed Wi-Fi, to create highly personal sanctuaries of comfort and connectivity.

The new beachfront villas form part of a broader transformation of JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort & Spa, as it evolves into a holistic haven of tranquility for every type of guest, including parents with children, multi-generational families, experience-seeking friends, professional event planners, and brides and grooms seeking a one-of-a-kind wedding or honeymoon.

The recent launch of JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort Suites, a collection of 52 new two-bedroom suites set around Southeast Asia’s longest swimming pool, has created an outstanding option for family vacations. These chic and spacious suites include options with direct access to the 2.4km-long lagoon pool, variations with bunk beds for younger children, and a collection of duplex Loft Suites with separate upper levels for teenagers.

Complementing the new family-focused suites and villas, JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort & Spa has unveiled its exciting Aqua Play Zone, allowing kids to enjoy endless hours of fun in the wave pool, water trampoline and slides. Meanwhile, adults can sit back and relax at Sala, the elegant dining destination surrounded by on all sides by glistening water, so parents can keep an eye on their youngsters at all times. Different generations can come together and enjoy memorable meals with a mouth-watering menu that focuses on fresh Asian flavors and international favorites, accompanied by a range of refreshing beverages.

Sala joins a compelling collection of 11 restaurants and bars at JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort & Spa, including Drift, a chic beachside venue that celebrates the timeless joys of fine food and great company with endless ocean views, and Olive, the refined yet rustic Italian trattoria which hosts immersive experiences such as pizza making classes and monocultivar olive oil discovery sessions.

Every stay can be enhanced by signature experiences such as family picnics in the JW Garden or in the peace of the guest’s suite or villa. Couples meanwhile can luxuriate in a romantic private in-villa dining experience, while an in-room teepee will give youngsters a sense of excitement and exploration. The JW Garden, dedicated to cultivating organic and indigenous ingredients, sets the stage for Thai cooking classes or an exploration of mixology courtesy of the Cocktail Discovery kit which uses fresh fruit and herbs from the garden. And after a rewarding day of activities, what could be more relaxing than soaking in a hot and fragrant bath, with a natural bath bomb made using local ingredients?

“It gives me great pleasure to unveil our new one- and two-bedroom beachfront villas. These spectacular sanctuaries will set the stage for unforgettable vacations that nourish the soul and foster togetherness. Set amid natural surroundings, they will help loved ones to feel refreshed, revitalized and reconnected with each other in paradise. This marks the final phase of our transformational 18-month renovation, which has successfully reimagined our resort and helped us evolve from a five-star seafront retreat to a genuine ‘destination-within-a-destination’ with a full range of accommodation and facilities for every type of traveler,” said Abhimanyu Singh, General Manager, JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort & Spa.
