Thoughts On Baan Krating

Hi all

We have been to Thailand several times now, but are considering Khao Lak for the first time next March. I have been reading throught the FAQ's so starting to get a feel for the area. Does any one have any thoughts on Baan Krating, not the resort itself, but more the location, whats nearby etc. Me and she who must be obeyed are 40ish, not interested in being in the middle of everything, but like to be a short walk or drive to a few restaurants, shops, markets etc. Look forward to any responses

Andy

Hi Andy,

The Baan Krating is the first resort you reach coming over the mountain from Phuket before you drop down the highway into the main township of Bang La On. It is built down the hillside with quite a number of steps down to the adjacent sunset beach. It does not have a beach frontage of its own as it fronts a rocky coastline at the southern end of Sunset Beach at one side and part of the Khao Lak Lamru National Park on the other.

It has an excellent cliff top restaurant open to the public just down the highway that offers the nest views over Khao Lak's northern coastline and is about 2km to Bang La On where you will find the nearest restaurants, bars and shops. You may enjoy walking downhill - once! - but not in the heat of the day and uphill is pretty arduous. There are though always taxis parked outside for the 10 minute trip which will probably cost about 200 baht.

There are some new bungalows added to the right going down from the restaurant which are excellent perched on the hillside with balconies looking directly over Sunset Beach. Wonderful at sunset!
