Just planning a trip to Phuket with the family (3 teenagers) at the last minute. We're going in June/July. I like the look of Outrigger Serenity Terraces Resort, Chalong bay, but I'm not sure about its location. Can anyone tell me if it is far from Kata beach? We have friends who will be staying there, and while we don't want to live in each others' pockets, we do want to get together regularly and don't want that to be a hassle.
On the map it looks reasonably accessible (by tuk-tuk?) but just want to be sure.
Also, can you comment on the resort? It has very favourable reviews - but we will be staying in the Serenity room, the cheapest option. Is this ok? (it's a budget restriction, I'm afraid ... not planning to upgrade as we need 2 rooms))
