My friend and I are planning a 7 night trip to Thailand end of Jan / start of Feb 2019. We have both been to Krabi before and stayed at the Sofitel which we really liked. We wanted something similar with a nice big pool and good local restaurants/bars within 10 mins walking distance. We like the look of the JW Marriott in Khao Lak and would be very grateful to know the following:
- Is the pool nice and big? Feel like the photos could be a bit deceptive. Might not compare to the Sofitel in size but we are going to be spending a lot of time at the pool and want to know it is big/nice and there are plenty of sun loungers with umbrellas
- Are there nice local restaurants/bars within walking distance? Google maps suggests there are a couple of places (Pens and coconut nearby and more places 10-12 minute taxi ride away. We also like the look of Memories Bar which looks like a taxi ride away). Any recommendations would be great.
- Are there any day trips you would recommend? We did a 4 island boat tour from krabi which was good.
- Any idea what the weather will be like at this time?
Many thanks in advance
