La Flora or Kantary Beach advice please.

We are planning to visit Khao Lak in August 2012. Having been to Phuket several times we would like to stay somewhere quieter. We have narrowed our hotel choice down to La Flora or Kantary Beach. As we will be visiting in low season please can anyone advise if there are any local restaurants within walking distance of either hotel and what transport costs/distance away from shops etc would be as we would like the option of eating away from the hotel at night. Many thanks.

Go with La Flora, lots of restaurants in the neighbourhood there although many of them are closed in August. At Kantary Beach your options are slim.

There is likely to be only one of the restaurants on White Sand Beach adjacenr to the Kantary open in August whereas there will be a greater choice near the La Flora in Bang Niang. Taxi to Bang Niang (15 minutes ) or Bang La On (20 minutes) would be about 300 baht from the Kantary. You will only be 10 minutes by taxi and about 200 baht at La Flora from the main township of Bang la On where more restaurants, bars and shops remain open.

During August, your dining options outside of the Kantary are very limited. There is a very good choice of restaurants in and around La Flora. Also easy walking distance to the local markets.

Many thanks all for your advice. Although we can get a great deal at The Kantary beach it may be just a little isolated in low season. Thanks.

Our family of four, (inc 19 son & 16 year old daughter) are going to the La Flora arriving on 6th August for twelve days. The information I am finding suggests we have made the right choice.
