Le Meridian Khao lak- question about prices

Hi everyone

I am thinking of booking a week at Le meridian Khao Lak, and the price for the week is very good. However, when there, is it very expensive to buy food/ drinks? I have stayed in Phuket before.

I am trying to weigh up, is it better to stay at a similar priced hotel in Phuket where meals/ drinks may be cheaper, or to stay there?

any thoughts would be much appreciated

I assume you would be staying at Le Meridien with breakfast included, so you are considering prices of lunch and dinner and drinks. Having stayed there twice, if we had lunch at all after the magnificent breakfast, we dined at the Rim Lay beach restaurant 200 metres down the beach (excellent food and inexpensive) or at one of the three restaurants just further along around the headland past the Similana on the superb White Sand Beach. These are also excellent venues for dinner. There are other restaurants on the highway near the entrance to the Le Meridien. Also you can get a shuttle from the hotel (or a taxi by arrangement with the Rim Lay) into Bang La On, the centre of Khao Lak with its many great restaurants, bars and shops.

Should you dine in Le Meridien, there are several different restaurants, more expensive than local ones of course, but for a 5* resort they are comparatively inexpensive. The exception is the Khuk Khak restaurant, selling Korean BBQ and oriental cuisine at prices intended to lure diners there from outside the resort. Drinks cheaper accordingly.

I am not sure that dining in a 5* resort in Phuket would be any cheaper or better.
