Welcome to Khaolak Bungalows !

In just a few years, Khaolak advanced from an insider tip for backpackers to one of the most popular tourist attractions in Thailand. Despite the fast development, Khaolak has still retained its charme and unique atmosphere also because of the 12 km long beach front which assures relaxation in an uncrowded tropical environment. Khaolak's hinterland features dense rain forest vegetation on a massive hillside.

Launched in 2004 and rebuild after tsunami for new season 2005, this resort for divers and snorkellers combines clean and comfortable accommodation, a stylish Thai Restaurant & Bar, a professional diving & snorkelling center and our Mares equipment sales & service center - all nicely settled amidst a lush strait on the Nangtong Beach in a tropical garden that is dominated by a specially designed dive pool.

The 12km long and scenic Khaolak beach is strait at the front of the resort and is suitable for children due to large safe and shallow areas.

Our dive boats are moored just a few minutes by car away at Tab Lamru harbour, the gateway to the famous Similan Islands and Richelieu Rock, worldwide recognized as Thailand's whale shark magnet. As you can see - all parts of the puzzle do nicely fit together here at Divers' Land.

The philosophy of the Divers' Land team is to provide you with all necessities a scuba diving or snorkelling holiday requires under one roof.
