hotels

We are thinking of coming to Khao Lak at the beginning of October for 2 weeks .We would like to stay at 2 different hotels in different areas. Can anyone recommend any reasonably priced hotels which have restaurants on the beach nearby, as we don't like eating in the hotels. I've heard that all the beach restaurants are being closed down and if this is the case, we will have to try a different part of Thailand. We prefer not to eat in the restaurants by the main road in Khao Lak. Also any idea of the rainfall then? Many thanks

There are restaurants overlooking and on private land at the northern end of Bang Niang Beach with the Ramada, La Flora, Mukdara and Chong Fah being resorts to consider. On Khuk Khak Beach there are newly located restaurants adjacent to the J W Marriott and on Khao Lak (South) Beach there are local restaurants to the rear of the Merlin, Emerald and Briza Resorts. Booking.com is a good site to start looking for resorts for your dates and price range and then ask for more information. October is "usually" one of the wettest months but of recent years has had periods of rain but also lots of sun. Accommodation then is half or less than in High Season months.

So you still have options for splitting your holidays but unless you are particularly averse to the majority of restaurants in Khao Lak by avoiding the many restaurants in Bang la On and Bang Niang you are missing some of the best and diverse range of food in Khao Lak. Any particular reason for nor wanting to dine "in town"?

thanks for your reply. The hotel list is great. The reason we do not want to eat in the main town is that last time we were there, the main road was very busy and we just prefer a nice quiet beach restaurant. Once again, many thanks for your help.

The highway is no less busy but major reconstruction has made it 4 lanes all of the way through but from just north of Bang La On there are access roads at either side you are not walking in next to the traffic or in the cycle lane. Bang La On has pavements either side from the Nang Thong Supermarket south to where it goes over the mountain. So it is now generally safer for pedestrians - but still need to take care crossing the highway.
