Hotel recomendation

Hi

We are planning a trip april 2019 and are trying to chose the right hotel, the choices are mindblowing so are asking for a little help. We want a hotel on the beach but easy walking distance to local shops bars and restaurants we want 4 star or above but don't need unnecessary facilities we won't use

Any suggestions

Look here for details of beachfront accommodation along KL's beaches thebeachfrontclub.com/beach-hotels/…

Use Booking.com or Hotels.com to look for properties to suit your dates and budget. They both have maps showing locations.

The main towns where most restaurants, bars and shops within walking distance are Bang La On, with Nang Thong Beach down the road from it and hotels down the mountain road on Sunset Beach (shown as Khao Lak North Beach on the above link) adjacent to it, and Bang Niang with the beach of the same name just 10 minutes further up the highway.

For 4* and above on Sunset Beach look at the Paradise, Wanaburee, Moracea and Adult Only Wanaburee. On Nang Thong Beach look at the Laguna, Sands and X10. On Bang Niang Beach there is La Vela, the Ramada, Mukdara and Casa de la Flora.

The maps at http://www.t3x.de/khaolak/KhaoLakmap.htm will help further wityh more details of the various beach areas.

We also had a great holiday in the X10 back in February. hoping to do it again in 2019 but so far it's not in the TUI list for 2019.

With respect long may it remain OFF the Tui list unless they do not try and further their All Inclusive inroads into Khao Lak. The local community is suffering enough as it is with the AI and Coupon deals already adversely affecting local restaurants.

I agree with your comment about AI Arandora but the X10 is B&B only with TUI. Of the 16 hotels offered 11 are B&B, 3 are AI and 2 are FB. We have looked at booking direct but so far that works out at over £1000 more expensive for 2 weeks. Of our 14 nights we ate in town for 10 of them.

Crossed wires somewhere Arandora. The info about the 16 hotels are currently on sale with TUI for the winter 2018 / 2019. The Sensimar was AI for winter 2017 / 2018 but its B&B for next winter.

We were looking for B&B on or near the beach. The big attraction of TUI for us is the direct flight - 11 hours out and 12 back. We have looked at a few other flights but they are 16 to 23 hours.

Have you looked at the scoopon deal for the sands which is running at the moment and has April dates next year? We booked two rooms with the ten nights package. I know you wanted direct flights but you will save loads going indirect and some excellent airlines fly to Phuket such as emirates, Qatar etc, all with better luggage allowance etc usually including in the flight price. Tui are very expensive.

Also what about the leaf Oceanside? A basic four star ( some night say 3) but it doesn’t have fancy facilities and it’s only 100 yards from the beach but loads of restaurants etc within very easy walking distance. Fourteen nights next April only £377?
