How busy is Khao Lak at the moment?

Just curious as to how busy Khao Lak is at the moment. We have had to change our travel dates by one day (from 11 March to 10 March) due to the collapse of Air Australia. I contacted our accomodation, Orchid beach resort, and they said the hotel was totally booked on the 10th and we would have to seek accomodation elsewhere, despite various booking sites showing availabilty. Not sure if it is the cynic in me, however our flight does not get into Phuket til midnite. Maybe it is the late transfer that is the issue for the hotel

I would doubt any hotel that has availability saying they were full and denying themselves an extra day's income for half a day's occupancy. You don't have to use the hotel for transfer in any event. Taxis are available at the airport or you could use Boss of Cheaper than Hotel Taxis in Khao Lak.

Why not book into one of the airport hotels when you arrive and transfer to the Orchid later as already arranged? See http://phuketairporthotel.com/ - it is open 24/7.
