We are flying into Phuket in late November after spending time with our daughter in hectic Hong Kong, so want peace and quiet and comfort. We've never been before, are active OAPs who like beach, golf and wildlife watching. We like smaller hotels - and I like the look of the Sarojin at Khao Lak. Any views or other ideas please -and, as we are booking independently, is it best (and cheapest?) to book directly with the hotel. Would welcome advice from TA as usual! Thanks.
