We've decided on the Cha-am/Hua hin area for our visit in July/August (3 weeks). I am still sorting through hotel choices, though. I have been e-mailing back and forth with the nicest person from the Baanlaksasubha Resort. But they are still out of our budget which is $90-95USD. Too bad, the accomodations look wonderful and the reviews are great.
My question: our flight gets in at about midnight at Bangkok. I want to get to Cha-m as soon as possible. How practical is it to hire a car to take us to our hotel at that time of night? Hotels offer rates of $100-200USD one way. Are there cheaper deals out there? Where do I look?
As far as accomodations go, this is a special trip for our 25th - 28th anniversaries (we've missed some celebrations due to work schedules...) and I want to "surprize" my husband with an extra special hotel deal - king bed, separate sitting area, free wireless and breakfast included. All for under $100USD - it is possible?
He's a photog, so a sea view room would be great, but I also want a pool to lounge around at and have spa treatments available. We also want to be within walking distance of markets and restaurants so we don't want to be too far out of town.
Am I asking for the moon?
Any advice or direction appreciated!!!
