After deciding to go to Sri Lanka, then changing out mind to go to Bali. We have now changed our mind again! and decided to go to Khao Lak, Thailand. Simply because the beaches just looked so much nicer.
We have decided on the JW Marriott, although we have heard som mixed reviews about this hotel, for instance that the service is not as good as it originally was. Can anyone clarify this that may have been recently? or can anyone suggest another hotel with a spa?
The other thing were the rooms, I am really confused!!!!. We will be booking the swim up room, however after looking at the website, it looks as though all the rooms are facing the back of a building?! I really dont like this :-(. I can't figure out the layout and not sure what room to ask for. We want the most private room, but with a ocean view, is this possible? If so, can anyone suggest some room numbers? I would really appreciate your help pleeeease.
We will be going mid March 2014 and have also read some mixed reviews about the weather. Has anyone been in March and experienced any rain?
Lastly, has anyone been on any of the day tours around Khao Lak area? we are interested in seeing the temples, Elephant trekking and possibly the National Park which I have heard is not too far. Has anyone been on any of these tours? and were they any good?
So sorry for all the questions, I just want to be sure of everything before I book it. I would really appreciate any responses. thank you in advance! x
