My partner and I will be in Khao Lak for 2 weeks from about July 10. Given that it will be the low season, would we need to book a hotel in advance, or take our chances and just turn up ?
I'd really like to stay at Chong Fah, but the price they have quoted seems a bit excessive at 3500 baht for the cheapest rooms..... they do have a promotion which gives 30% off, but this requires prepayment of the full amount (31500 baht) directly into the managing director's bank account. I've never heard of having to do this before...has anyone else had this experience?
Any other hotel suggestions would be gratefully accepted! We have previously stayed at the Sarojin and the Paradise- both stunning hotels but both a bit too expensive and too far away from the action for a 2 week stay during low season.
We'd prefer to stay at Bang Niang, beachfront and with a pool a must. Looking forward to advice from the experts - cheers!
