JW Marriott Khao Lak Unveils New Experiences for 2023

JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort & Spa and JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort Suites in southern Thailand, have unveiled 21 signature experiences for 2023 that will enable guests to elevate their vacation. Designed for "experience-seeking globetrotters," including curious couples, fun-seeking families and friends looking for discovery, these engaging activities are expected to ignite every visitor’s appetite for adventure.

The hotel can arrange a beachside Family Picnic, complete with a tipi, picnic basket, blanket and more, or a Family BBQ, crafted by a private chef in the JW Garden and filled with fresh ingredients, local seafood and prime meats. For romantic couples, the culinary team can serve a Romantic Dinner at a candlelit table for two in any location one desires. If guests care about nature, they can head down to the JW Garden, where they can learn about the hotel's three signature ingredients: rosella, Thai basil and lemongrass, which can be seen all around the resort.

Guests can also discover the culture of Khao Lak with a Beachfront Sunday Market. For a more soothing activity, the Coconut Workshops will teach guests how to make traditional southern Thai coconut oils and soaps by hand, while the resort's spa packages are full of organic scrubs and therapies. Alternatively, one can simply grab ice-cold coconuts from the Coconut Boat as they relax in the lagoon pool or on the terrace with their loved ones. Finally, Movie Night is Khao Lak’s first open air beachfront cinematic experience.

Guests also get a chance to learn a new skill on their vacation. Led by the resort's resident mixologists, the Mixology Master Class will reveal how to blend the perfect cocktail using fresh produce from the JW Garden, while the Culinary Master Classes will let guests recreate some of the resort’s dishes, including handmade pasta with Chef Enzo, Indian spices with Chef Mohan or Thai cookery with Chef Sa. Wellness-seekers can also join the organic Bath Bomb Workshop, using ingredients from the JW Garden.

For children, there is an array of inspiring experiences and activities, including the chance to watch a Magician perform tricks. They can also take part in Kids’ Daily Rituals at Sala, the casual poolside restaurant, such as sea boxing, games, cookie decorating, mocktail-making and more. Kids can also show their creativity with Wall Painting sessions, as they swap paper and pens for a vast canvas, or uncover arts and crafts, aquatic adventures and discovery walks with the daily Kids’ Club Activities. Then, at the end of the day, they gather round a fire pit on the beach for Marshmallow Toasting.

If one cares about sustainability, the innovative Art of Trash workshops combine creativity with sustainability as the resort takes debris and driftwood from the shore and turn them into sculptures. From Q2 2023, the resort will open the Shark Nursery, a dedicated marine sanctuary that will connect all ages with the Andaman Sea’s threatened bamboo sharks. Fully trained team of conservationists will show how they nurture the sharks, from the incubation of eggs to the time of release.

Alternatively, a Bike Tour can reveal the many wonders of Khao Lak, including local villages, Chong Fah Waterfall, Bang Niang Market and even the chance to present alms to Buddhist monks at the nearby temple. Mindfulness can also be achieved with a Floating Yoga class, as one can stretch their body and achieve physical and spiritual equilibrium on purpose-built floating yoga platforms.
