We're currently looking at two accommodation options in Khao Lak; the Apsara resort which seems to be a fair distance out of the main hub and a second option off Phetkasem Road (main centre?) but beach front and close to amenities but very limited facilities (particularly with toddler in tow!). We like the look of the Apsara better due to the facilities on offer but will be travelling with a one year old and want to be close to amenities also. The problem is we'd like a separate bedroom to living area so our little one can have his naps/go to bed earlier and we can still use the living area, but it seems all options in the centre have booked out or are way out of our price range as would have to book two rooms (budget up to 7000 baht). Question: do any of the bigger resorts off Phektasem road allow non guests to use their facilities? Would obviously expect to pay a fee. It would be great if we had the option to use the kids facilities/toddler pool on the odd occasion! Otherwise, are there any hotels I may have missed that offer separate living areas that aren't advertised on trip advisor?
Thanks in advance
