The JWM is 5*. The other 5* resorts are from south to north, Bang Niang Beach - the Casa de la Flora (more expensive), Pak Weeb Beach - the Sarojin (more expensive), Le Meridien (about same), Beyond (about same). This is based on regular prices as opposed to Special Promos with the likes of Travelzoo or Scoupon.

However, you could consider these 4* Resorts, Sunset Beach - Paradise Resort, Wanaburee Resort, Khao Lak Resort, Sensimar (Adult Only), Nang Thong Beach - Sands, Khuk Khak Beach - Orchid Beach, Blue Lagoon. Search on Booking.com. AsiaHotels.com. Sawasdee.com, Hotels2Thailand.com, Expedia.com for best prices.

For flights, prices for March will not be released until 330 days before date of flight dates so not for a couple of weeks yet. Other than special offers which may arise during the year booking early gets best prices. Use Skyscanner.net to search for options for your dates but recommended to book direct with the airline or a reputable 3rd party like Net Flights and Expedia (who both do hotels as well). Some 3rd party agents offer flights at prices that don't exist or schedules which change. Cheapest is rarely best.

Hope this helps.

Hi tezzat, this is an Australian deal, would this hold up if booked in the UK?

I found I couldn't log in as it wouldn't recognise my UK Post Code. However, if you have a Facebook account you can log in through that but again you have to subscribe with your Email and Post Code and again it won't accept a UK Post Code. Having said that I've done a dummy booking without logging in to the point of buying the voucher so I don't know what happens after that. It's a great deal though.

Lynne, if you fancied returning to Khuk Khak beach but staying at a smaller resort, I passionately recommend Khaolak Blue Lagoon Resort. Have a look at the TA reviews, it's under b&b although is a lot more than that! Saying that, we've looked through booking.com and it seems almost fully booked for next season but I'm sure you could book direct to the hotel. At low tide it's an easy walk to Bang Niang along the beach.

Hi Lynne, its available on 2 or 3 Aussie sites, try deals.com.au and also luxuryexcapes.com

We have ben to KL 4 times and have stayed at Nang Thong Bay Resort (NTBR1) all 4 times, twice in a beach front bungalow, once in a bungalow on row 2, and once in a ground floor building room. We have bought an 8 night deal at The Sands for October and will probably head to NTBR1 for another week after that, unless another 6-7 night deal comes up beforehand.
