Dec/Jan 14 Where to base ourselves and do day trips?

Hi TA's

Husband and I are making our first big trip out of New Zealand aiming for 27/12 - 10/01!

Interested in knowing if there is a suitable Phuket or Krabi resort style, beach side, swim up pool bar that we could base ourselves at and do day trips from??

Secondly what should we do for New Years Eve, I like a good drink but not looking for anything chaotic.

Thanks in advance

There are only three resorts on the beach in Patong but many are across the beach road.

We have stayed at the Banthai a few times -- it is in an excellent position has three swim up pool bars and a fantastic hotel. You can base yourself anywhere in Phuket for day trips. There are many places to go for New Year - you could try the Irish Pub right next door to the hotel, they have a band.

Remember that all hotels are expensive at that time of the year and you need to book very early.
