The lagoon pools, JW Marriott Khao Lak, southern west Thailand

This resort has 4 aisles of canals surrounding 4 big pools. Photo 1-3 is the main pool in front of the hotel lobby. 4-5. the canals. 6. pond outside the Thai and Japanese restaurants. 7-9. the kids' pool. 10-15. the Aquamarine pool. 16-20. the Infinity pool.
It is actually double the size of Sheraton Hua Hin. It takes you hours to swim thru' all the water area. Good for families to spend a few days without going out. The drawback is that they don't have handle for the elderly or young to go into the water from their pool access rooms. Some of the canals are at 1.5 m. Besides, the water flow and filtering need to be improved. In some canal area, the water is stagnant. In the night time, there isn't enough pool light which is quite dangerous. Night view photos (actually not much due to very limited pool light) to be posted later.

Yes Mickey. For sure people know this hotel is in Thailand due to the Thai essence of design.

The floating beds must be from Sea.

For those who like some typical Thai style resort, this is a nice one.
