I am so confused about where to stay in Khao Lak! I know there has been a lot of discussion about it along with info, maps, etc but for some reason I just can't wrap my head around where things are.
We will be arriving mid-March and would like to stay 5 to 6 nights. Ideally we'd like to keep the price around $100 US per night. Basically the reason we are going is so my husband can do a couple of days of diving so near a dive shop might be good. I want to be near to shops, restaurants, etc. The beach would be nice but a pool will do.
I've been looking at "The Leaf" but seems like its not opening until November 2013. Any info about this hotel? Does it seem to be in a good location? Nice place, etc.? Any other suggestions? The price starts at $106 US (or 3300 bht) per night.
