We have 12 nights in Phuket early November. I've decided to stay about 5 to 6 nights at the Cape Panwa Hotel, and perhaps 2 nights at the Holiday Inn Mai Khao after we arrive as it's close to the airport. Not sure where to stay the remaining time. Perhaps in Kata or Karon beach area, as they seem to have more eating places & the better beaches?
I'm considering either Katathani Beach Resort or Kata Beach Resort & Spa, as you can get sea views, beach front & some eating places close by. However the sea view room tariffs are stretching our budget a bit.
Don't mind a bit of a walk up/down a hill to get to the beach, but prefer no roads in front. Want to avoid staying in Patong. Any suggestions for hotels in other beaches?
