Hi we are flying in to Phuket in feb 2013 for a relaxing 6 night stay somewhere. We are looking for beautiful quiet beaches but also access to nature trails/cycling...we are also keen to visit surin/similan islands.
We don't really want a transfer of longer than 2hrs from Phuket airport, and want to avoid low-rise resorts, but at the same time don't want to be too remote that we don't have a choice of day trips/restaurants etc.
Any recommended areas/islands/bungalow resorts would be most appreciated! How about khao lak?
