Having recently undergone a THB 1.5 billion expansion in order to put this resort on the map as a preferred destination for meetings and events, JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort & Spa is an exquisite property perfect for Indian celebrations. Replete with verdant grounds and Southeast Asia’s longest swimming pool, which meanders through the property for 2.5km, and which can be accessed from the resort’s signature pool-access rooms; the property is also steps from the glistening shoreline. It also boasts 11 restaurants and bars spanning Japanese, Thai, Italian cuisine and more; a garden with freshly-grown produce, and as of late June, a Bamboo Shark Nursery to incubate these misunderstood animals and release them into the ocean. Their inspired function rooms are all equipped with state-of-the-art AV equipment, and their newly-renovated JW Grand Ballroom can host up to 800 guests, ideal for largescale receptions.
