Jump to last reply

We are (i think) set on going to Phuket for 4 days after we visit Japan in November (mainly due to trying to get a less expensive flight from Kix and we are now routing via KUL) anyway, we were originally going to revist Hua Hin but as we will now be at KUL airport we thought we would see where is available to us a reasonable price and easy connection. (we will have landed very early a.m from an overnight flight from Osaka)
So we are thinking about Phuket...

Can any recommend a hotel/area in Phuket?
We like boutique type hotels but all things would be considered (although Aman and Banyan tree are out as they are waaaay above the budget ) i guess i am looking for max spend around $300 per night.
Somewhere with a Thai/ chilled feel and ideally easy walking or short cab ride to some nice restuarants but away from the the more shall we say livlier aspects of Phuket! We have been to Thailand many times before but this would be our first visit to Phuket. Not too bothered about activities as we will want to just chill in peaceful surroundings during the day) Oh and not too long a transfer from the airport!!! (dont want much do I :) )

I have looked at the Twin Palms and that looks nice and the Surin, but am not sure of the location, can any help and advise please?
