I don’t know about the Sheraton at Krabi... it looks nice....Perhaps someone else stayed there and can offer advice.... or tell you about high end resorts at Raleigh. We stayed at a pretty ordinary place at au nang last January... just for the night on the way to Lanta...

Raleigh is absolutely special... the limestone crags and beaches are like nowhere else... definitely worth a few days.... as is Lanta....

I noticed that you also where thinking about Chiang Mai.... long way from Lanta and Krabi... But if you are going in January... it’s the perfect time to visit.. if anything on the cool side.. but compared to Melbourne it will seem perfect....

You mention Elephant treks.. Chiang Mai would be the place to do it....

Take a look at this place in Chiang Mai.... close to the old city and all the attractions....:


Best of luck with your planning.

I think 8 days at Layana is better than changing hotels. For me the Sheraton is only worth it if you have Starwood Miles or something similar as this property falls into one of the lower categories! In the high season, everthing in Lanta will be open and the beach at Layana is wonderful, as are the owners Bob and Margie. If you read there website, these two always get a mention!

Thank you both for your suggestions. We decided against Chang Mai because of the distance adn have confined the trip to 4 nights Bangkok, 4 nights Khai Yao National Park at Kirimaya resort, then the Krabi/Koh Lanta conundrum.
