You'd be better off posting on the Phuket Forum as you are likely to get more answers there about a Phuket resort or are you asking about what is near NTBR1? If so, you are right on th beach and just a short walk up the road to the centre of Bang La On which is the main township of Khao Lak and full of restaurants, shops and bars.

Well that explains it Expedia (former owners of TripAdvisor, doesn't even know that the Maiko Dream Resort is on the island of Phuket which is a completely separate province from Khao Lak, 65km north of Phuket, although some websires and local newspapers refer to Khao Lak as being "wider" or "outer" Phuket. God Forbid that is ever the case!

Yes it is definately not on Phuket Island, rode past it on a push bike but I can't remember what was close by:) There is also another one at Mai Khao, the Maikhao Dream Villa Resort & Spa)

Sorry,

I was half right. Got confused with Mai Khao Dream Villa Resort which is on Phuket and Mai Khao Dream Resort which is off island in Natai which is in Phang Nga Province.Google Maps shows it about 65km to Bang La On, nearest main town being Khok Kloy. Website at http://www.maikhaodream.com/

Back to the original question, there may be just a few local restaurants nearby,usually are when a new resort opens, but the one we dined at when in that area is directly on the beach on the way to the Hot Springs Resort called the Rabieng Lay which was very good.

I think you'll be OK if you have a car.
