Elky asked:

Me and my girlfriend are looking for somewhere really nice to stay but dont want to spend more than £100 a night (total). We are looking for somewhere from 3rd January to 11th january. We know its expensive then but there must be a really nice place we can stay at that isnt going to cost the earth? Any ideas would be appreciated

  1. On Koh Lanta, the most popular is probably Pimalai Resort, but there are many good hotels to choose from.

    In Krabi (mainland), I suggest Sand Sea Resort in Ao Railay or Ao Nang Villa Resort in Ao Nang. Don’t stay at Klong Muang.

  2. Hi – I am not sure about the prices so I apologise in advance if it is too expensive, but last year we stayed at the Rayavadee in Krabi and it was the ultimate in luxury….. their website is but it may be cheaper to book it via the UK. We stayed in a two storey bungalow with a swimming pool in the garden! The service was absolutely second to none and we got to watch wild monkeys swimming in our pool!

    The restaurants were all very good but on Railey beach there are some other hotels that cater for backpackers with good value restaurants, also every day boats selling lunch for as little as £1 pull up on the shore…….

    I would go back there in a heartbeat!

  3. Unfortunately you are going to be visiting at the very height of peak season when prices go through the roof. For a decent, four star plus hotel you are going to have to pay a little more than 100 UKP a night. If you want nice surroundings and good service, it sadly doesn’t come cheap.

    The Layana on Koh Lanta gets consistently good reviews, and it’s in a more convenient location than Pimalai and they are charging 11,000 Baht during peak season – around 160 UKP

    The Layana is pricey for food, but as it’s on Long Beach there are plenty of other, cheap and tasty restaurants a short walk along the beach – I recommend the restaurant “Somewhere Else” for excellent Thai food and also Mr Wee’s Pizza. (No, really!) .

    I’d avoid the Sofitel in Krabi – that’s had consistently bad reviews despite costing a fortune. Sofitel are really hit and miss as a hotel brand.

  5. Visit – You can book on line. I have used them in the past and are very good. Click on Holiday Shop or Worldwide Travel to find the hotels/stars/info/location etc.
    You do not need to be a member to book the hotels, however as a member you will save more money as you will be able to book resorts and those prices are per unit rather than per person.
    Have a nice holiday.
