Hi..I am considering the Paradise and have seen many great reports on tripadvisor. It is my first time on a Thai beach holiday (we will have spent 4 days in Laos and are looking for a place to chill out for 5 days). We usually stay at 4-5 star boutique places and I had considered the Sarojin but the paradise seems more authentic and better value. Any thoughts..? Would like somewhere peaceful but not too far from local restaurants etc. We had also considered Koh Lanta / Krabi or Phi Phi. Any opinions on choosing Khao Lak vs these places? Thanks in advance.
