I know most of these questions will have been asked before but we're looking to book up next week & would appreciate some quick advice!
We love the look of Khao Lak in that it's rural & doesn't seem as touristy as Phuket, but will it be too quiet for us in early May? We plan to spend our days on the beach & doing a couple of excursions, but because of the risk of rain or non-beach weather we'd like the option of bars & places within walking distance to eat out at during the day & night, also can we use the restaurants/bars at neighbouring resorts? Just how quiet is it in early May?
We've narrowed it down to 4 resorts, all with good TA reviews -
The Kantary Beach which looks like it has the best beach but seems quite isolated in that there are no nearby hotels or restaurants/bars(on google maps anyway!)
The Apsara Beach resort which is slightly closer to other resorts/bars but still quite far out from the 'centre'.
Moracea & the Sensimar Khao Lak Beachfront Resorts which seem to be within walking distance of bars & restaurants but are slightly more expensive.
Which resort would you choose and why? We're not looking for busy nightlife but just don't want to be bored at night & find ourselves having to get a taxi every time we want to go out!
