The Ultimate Family Experience

Experiences

JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort Suites is a haven of adventure for all ages. Families can come together and create meaningful connections amid natural surroundings, set against the backdrop of the Andaman Sea. The spectacular 2.4km-long lagoon pool and exhilarating Aqua Play Zone set the stage for immersive daytime activities. Challenge your children and ignite their imagination with a treasure hunt in the gardens, or engage their passion for nature with a visit to the JW Garden or Shark Nursery. Feed your soul in this culinary destination with a wide range of restaurants, bars and activities such as a family picnic or cooking classes. Take a stroll along the silky-soft beach with your loved ones, as little feet leave footprints in the sand and splash in the Andaman Sea, or embark on sightseeing excursions all around this tropical paradise. For vacations that nourish the soul and foster togetherness, JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort Suites is the ultimate family retreat.

Shark Nursery

Enjoy Wild Encounters at the Shark Nursery

Transform your vacation into a deeply fulfilling experience by visiting our Shark Nursery, a dedicated marine sanctuary that connects all ages with the threatened bamboo sharks of the Andaman Sea. Guests can join our fully trained team of conservationists and learn how they nurture bamboo shark eggs from their incubation to the moment they hatch. Parents and children can then see the baby sharks in a dedicated nursery and educational area, feed them and even help to release them back into the wild. This is a memory that young guests will treasure forever, and could even inspire the next generation of marine biologists.
