8 night honeymoon on the beach

Help! We will be in Thailand for 3 weeks and want to spend 8 nights on the beach in January. I prefer to choose 1 or 2 hotels to make our home base and take day trips from there. Currently, my top runners are Khao Lak and Kho Phi Phi (very expensive). What about Railay beach? Is Khao Lak as amazing as it looks? Any advice would be appreciated.

Many thanks!

Becky

It would be helful if you could indicate your price range and type of accommodation - hotel or bungalow resort - as Khao Lak has all kinds to suit all tastes at varying prices.

Have a look at

- this link for general information and accommodation http://www.khaolaklovers.com/

- this one for Top things to do in and around Khao Lak tripadvisor.co.uk/Travel-g297914-c109161/Kha…

The favourite honeymoon resort is the Sarojin on beautiful Pak Weeb Beach but it is also the most expensive. The Le Meridien shares the samew beach and handful of beach restaurants. Then there is the J W Marriott on Khuk Khak Beach. Nearer to a town the Chong fah, La Flora and Ramada on Bang Niang Beach are very good resorts as is the Paradise on Sunset Beach near to the main town of Bang La On.

Thanks. Since we are traveling for 3 weeks, we are going to try and get the most bang for our buck. I am thinking 4 nights in Khao Lak at $100-150 night and then travel to Kho Phi Phi or Railay for 4 nights.

The marriott looks amazing and within our range. Any other suggesions would be appreciated.

Thanks

Becky

The Le Meridien is on the best part of the best beach in Khao Lak. The Sarojin, further down Pak Weeb Beach may be beyond your budget but the new Kantyary Beach next door to it and due to open this November looks to be worth considering, especially if they have "opening offers" - see kantarycollection.com/kantarybeach-khaolak/i…

For resorts nearer to restaurants, bars and shops within walking distance look at the Ramda and La Flora in Bang Niang.

Have a look at the orchid resort. we book directly with them and a deluxe room seems to be 2700B so well within your price range. it is a fantastic place.
