khao lak.....decisions decisions??

Hi there just needing some tips on this area and if its worthwhile for a 2 week stay.

As off tomorrow I am walking into a travel agents and paying a deposit sooo no goin back 😁.

Been looking at the aspara hotel and spa to stay?? Is this place worth a visit?? Or any other nice hotels in the area. I have been to thailand before, Few of the islands plus few days in bangkok and phuket so was looking just to stay somewhere bit different and relax.

My dates would b last end of October going into 1st week nov.

Also looked at the area cha-am and hua hin. Any tips and suggestions would b great thank u

I know on checking aspara it has got some great reviews so I'm not doubting the hotel itself more of the area and if there is enough to do in a 2 week stay.

so many places in thailand its do hard to pick just one area x

We go in November. Had originally booked the apsara but changed to the khao lak oriental. This was for no other reason than location as apsara looks fab. It was a really difficult decision. Sorry but probably no help lol.

Instead of heading to a travel agent in the morning I'd suggest booking everything on your own. So simple and potentially good savings to be made.

Book flights to Phuket and hotels from one of several websites and get Boss to taxi you to Khao Lak.

Kind regards

richiegal and birdieyork

A search for Apsara (note it is the Apsara Resort not the Asparas Resort) will give you lots of recent information and here are pics of Pakarang Beach where it is located taken from the end of last November until the end of March https:/…

It is a secluded but beautiful location with just a few local restaurants nearby which may or may not have reopened yet in October depending on weather, beach and ocean conditions and the number of visitors.


As I've replied to your other post it would get more answers if it had been on the Khao Lak and Cape Panwa Forums not the general Thailand one.

Similarly for richiegirl questions on Cha-Am and Hua Hin will get more replies on those forums.

If you have any more questions about Khao Lak after this I look forward to answering them tomorrow. I'm off to bed now. I've been posting replies since 7am ;-)

I've reported all the Duplicates. Hope somebody else does too!
