X10 Khaolak Resort | The Family Travel Bug Review
Location | Khao Lak, Thailand
When booking our trip to Thailand, we knew we didn’t want to stay in Phuket the entire time. We wanted to venture out, and try to visit some places that weren’t “on the standard path”. It’s amazing what kind of places you can find when you venture away from the more populated tourist areas!
While doing some research we stumbled across Khao Lak, which is about 1 1/2 hrs north of Phuket Island. It’s on the Andaman coast, and has a local Thai feel.
There are several different resorts in Khao Lak ranging from luxury, family friendly, to budget. Because we had our three little girls, we of course were looking for family friendly. After a bit of research and reading reviews, we decided to book the X10 Khaolak Resort (use this link to book)!

X10 Khaolak Resort | Rooms
If you looking for a hotel with lots of family focused rooms? The X10 Khaolak Resort has over 10 different room types, 6 of them being family focused. The rooms you want to look for are the “Kid Suites” or the “Triple Room”, these are the largest and can accommodate families.
These rooms are great for families, and we had enough space for our family of 5. Most rooms are located by a pool (as the resort is shaped in a “U” design). The Kids Suite (in the family wing) feature an additional kids’ room with bunk beds and comes with 2 bathrooms. The Suites are located from ground floor up to 2nd floor with pool view. It can accommodate a maximum of 2 adults and 2 children (below 12 yrs old) without extra charge. Note, some rooms are equipped with sofa bed, and allow up to 3 adults (additional charge applies). For infant (under 3 yrs old), a baby cot will be provided free of charge (on-request).
Each of the rooms come with all the standard room amenities that you would find in a good hotel. During our stay we used the mini-fridge a lot to store stuff we would buy at the store, which was helpful. The air conditioning worked well in our room, and was great after a hot day. The one area of improvement we would call out are the beds. We found the beds to be pretty hard, and uncomfortable at times.
X10 Khaolak Resort | Family Activities & Kids Club
One of the things that we liked most about X10 Khaolak Resort was it’s family focused activities and resort amenities. Families can enjoy the game room, cooking lessons, free fitness classes, and evening entertainment. In addition, kids have the option to head over to the Kids club where they can exercise and let their imagination run wild. The Kids’ Club is welcoming and open-air, and adjacent to a sandy playground. Below is a list of some of our girls favorite activities and amenities:
- Slide: There is a fun slide centrally located in the middle of the resort
- Splash pad: Next to the slide there is a fun splash pad that both small and older kids would enjoy
- Kids Club: Next to a fun playground, the kids club has it’s own building. Kids will find everything from painting, board games, video games, and organized activities!
- Resort Activities: There are a lot of different resort activities that are focused around kids. Check out this link to the X10 Khaolak’s weekly schedule to get an idea!
Another feature the X10 Khaolak offers is babysitting for a small cost. This service must be booked in advance. While we didn’t use this service, it could be helpful if parents want to go explore or take a tour without kids for the afternoon or day.
In addition to the amenities and activities, families will enjoy the company of other families from around the world! Our kids enjoyed making friends with kids from Australia and New Zealand.
X10 Khaolak Resort | Food Options
The X10 Khaolak Resort offers three main options when it comes to dining. Families will love that “Kid’s Eat Free” (with a paying adult) from the kids menu. In addition to its onsite restaurants, the resort is conveniently located within walking distance to the shops and cafés in Khao Lak town.
- The Main Restaurant: Buffet style restaurant for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
- Seaside Seafood Kitchen: Á la carte seafood dishes
- Poolside Bar: Offers a wide variety of beverages along with light lunches or snacks
Pam’s Restaurant & Bar Khao Lak
There are a lot of local restaurants that families will love; however, one of our favorites was Pam’s! The food was amazing, they offered kids options, and they had highchairs! The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, and are great with kids! If you are interested in going, we recommend making a reservation as it’s a popular place.
