2 nights near Khao Lak and Phuket And

After three nights in Bangkok and a further 8 nights in Northern Thailand, we'll be spending 7 nights in Khao Lak (Nang Thong Bay Resort-10th to 17th Nov.) We have two nights to "spare" after Khao Lak, before our flight from Phuket to Bangkok on the 19th November.

Should we spend these two nights in Khao Lak or have two nights in Phuket? Or any other suggestions...

We'd prefer not to be more than two hours drive from the airport. We're 60 year olds and are not interested in Patong and Pataya.

Although it is just over an hour from the NTBR to Phuket Airport, if you really fancy a change of scene and be nearer still, Nai Yang Beach is a lovely small beach area less than 10 minutes from Phuket Airport. You could research some resorts there but only book from when you are in Khao Lak. Personally I would stay in Khao Lak but I'm prejudiced! :-)

I agree with Arandora, Nai Yang beach is lovely but so in Khao Lak. Moving from hotel to hotel can get a little boring! but if you do want to move around i would suggest Indigo Pearl at Nai Yang beach, it has rooms varying from budget(ish) to luxury pool villas. It is a MASSIVE resort but nice to wonder around and have some great scenery.

Khao Lak is a little more relaxing and for 2 extra days why not stay longer :)

Kind Regards

Sam

Another vote for Indigo Pearl at Nai Yang, a peaceful shady little beach village, great beach restaurants and massage places, and a stunning resort too.

The Dewa Resort is at the other end of the beach from the Indigo Pearl and is more affordable. See pics from February in this album https:/…

I think we'll remain in Khao Lak (if we like it).
