Nice hotel in Phuket (not Patong) and Krabi wanted


Odense
 Share

Recommended Posts

I am planning to visit either Phuket or Krabi for a week with a female friend. Nightlife is not that important but a nice beach within reasonable distance is a must.

 

What is the opinion of the BM's - is Phuket or Krabi the best destination (and why) ?

 

Which location in Phuket and Krabi respectively will be best (good peaceful beach) ?

 

I obviously need a hotel - I am aware that hotels will be more expensive than in Pattaya. I'm looking for something like Sandy Spring or Areca Lodge - qualitywise - any recommandations in the two locations ?

I have stayed in many hotels in Phuket, as you say the hotels are far more exspensive than Pattaya, I have syayed at Phuket ocean this is a mid range hotel & excellent value.

 

It has a great view over the lagoon which is between the hotel & the sea at Karon beach (300yards) also this hotel is one of the 1st hotels south of Patong so if you wanted a night out there it would not be far to go!

 

Karon beach is a great place for a relaxing holiday!

Thanks SB,

 

I'm leaning towards Krabi at the moment - mostly because I have never been there. The Ocean looks very nice though - exactly what I was looking for :Raspberry6:

Hi Odense. There are a few peaceful Beaches in Phuket. Karon is probably the best as it's only 15 or 20 minutes from Patong should you fancy a good night out. There is also Kata and Surin which are nice. Heard good things about Krabi but never been. Have been to Phi Phi though and it's very nice there. Expensive though.

If you stay in Patong I can recommend a good guesthouse. It is a new place on Soi Sansabai called White Patong. It is a boutique guesthouse and you can trust me when I say that the deluxe rooms here are as good as any rooms you'll get for the price in Patong, especially this close to the action.

I paid aroung 1200 Baht per night and the room was real luxury. You can get a standard room for around 1000 Baht.

 

COYS.

Odense: Ao Nang has nice hotels, pubs, restaurants, & bars, but the beach sucks. You go out 1/2 a mile and it's still 2 ft deep. If you head up the coast near the Sheraton, then the beach is pretty nice. I hear there's some good hotels up there for 50-60. The beach in Railay is fabulous as well. It's just a short boat ride around the point from Ao Nang. If you're down with the hippie vibe then stay out there. It's pretty idyllic, but not cheap for what you get. Nitelife is a rasta bar and lots of ganja. I've stayed at the Sheraton (great), Ao Nang Villa (damn good), and some place in Railay (I can't remember because I had food poisoning for 3 days). Ao Nang Villa's rooms are big & beautiful, with nice decks. Their pool is at least 100 yards long and it's at the end of the beach before Railay. Private, yet walking distance to the action. I paid maybe $50, on Latestays, 3 years ago. I use up starpoints and stay at the Sheraton for nada these days, otherwise it would be ANV. I've stayed up in Phang Na at the Meridian and the beach up that way is gorgeous. wj

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)
