Quiet scenic beach in Thailand

Jump to last reply

My mother (early 60s) and I (late 20s) are heading to Thailand at the beginning of December and would like to spend a few days at the beach. I've been reading about the various choices, and it is rather overwhelming, so i'm hoping that someone can offer a few suggestions. My ideal wishlist is:

-Beautiful scenery (obviously)

-Peace and quiet (e.g. no full moon parties or crazy party scene)

-Accessible from Chiang Mai, Bangkok and/or Siem Reap as we will only be able to spend three nights (I realize we will have to fly from any of these cities, but I'm hoping for something with an easy direct flight and not a lot of subsequent transfers)

-Decent SCUBA diving and snorkeling (not a must, but would like this)

-A good 4 or 5 star beachfront hotel or resort that is not exorbitantly priced (e.g. 250USD or less)

-A few good restaurants to venture to in the evening

Thanks in advance for your help!
