Amari Vogue vs Dusit Thani vs Sofitel

We are a family of 4 with Adult children. We ahem decided that the resorts around Nong Thale look nicer than those in Ao Nang. We really want a beachfront Hotel. We are aware that its 20 mins to Ao Nang and prepared to use a Tuk Tuk or taxi to dinner in Ao Nang as often as we decide. Can anyone give me their opinion in regards to these three hotels as far as accommodation and location. Which hotel has a nicer feel and outlook?

Hello,

Not sure of Amari or Sofitel but I can speak for Dusit fairly confidently.

We stayed at this resort last month with our 9 year old. The place is awesome and so is the service. Advantages are proximity to the beach, two swimming pools, spa and kids play area.

They have a couple of restaurants serving Thai, Indian and Italian food.

You get taxis/tuk tuk right outside the hotel and there are a lot of eating joints aswell.

Hi Thee, thank you for your advice. We have decided to go to Khao Lak in stead this time but Krabi will be on our list for future holidays.

Khao lak has one great resort for families, but be prepared to stay on the resort as its a long 20 min ride to restaurants and a 7-11.

No water sports etc as the beach is quite rocky.

Nong thale is wayyyy better as u can take any island tour u can imagin all within 1-2hrs and no land travel.

Khao lak is secluded and 2 hrs to a nice island with fish etc. The resort is amazing, but isolated

#3 Khao Lak is 25km of beaches (some have rocks, many don't) with accommodation types to suit all budgets and areas which are isolated as well as places a short walk to everything. Your reference to Khao Lak as a 'resort' is quite confusing and misleading.

Did you decide on a hotel/area in Khao Lak and when will you be going?

I'm sure there will be a number of suggestions for you if you advise of your must haves.
