Hotel Advice

Hi Folks,

It seems that Khoa Lak hotels can be a little on the pricy side. Can anyone recommend a nice hotel in the $80/Night range that is close to the beach (preferably on the beach) as well as faily close to restautants/bars etc? We can possibly pay a little more per night but really want to try keep it at no more than $100USD/Night

Thanks for the help,

Dean

When are you planning to visit? Low season prices can be half those of high season, and a quarter those of the peak Christmas/New Year period.

Some resorts start to drop prices as early as March, but low season is generally May - October.

Thanks for the help so far, its greatly appreciated!!

We are going to be in Thailand Feb 1-18. We will be in the Krabi area for the first 10 days then were looking at either Khao Lak or Ko Samui/Ko Tao for the remaining week. Can anyone comment on Khoa Lak compared to Ko Samui/Ko Tao?

Thanks again

'Khao Lak' is 25 km of beaches on the mainland bordering the Andaman Sea. Koh Samui and Kho Tao are islands in the Gulf of Thailand and experience different seasonal weather patterns to Khao Lak.

In general, Khao Lak is 'less developed' than Koh Samui's: Bophut, Chaweng & Lamai areas (on the north east and east coast). Khao Lak has two townships, Bang La On and Bang Niang with concentrations of restaurants and bars (but no 'wild' nightlife).

Just use a booking site like Booking.com, put in your dates and search within your price range then come back and ask for further information on any accommodation that catches your eye. This should narrow down your options. The Maps in the Top Question FAQs will help identify the various areas.
