Thailand Travel help needed

Jump to last reply

We are headed to Thailand Nov 22-Dec 2. My husband and I are thirties, have no kids, and travel a good amount. We plan to spend 2 days in Bangkok (staying at the Penisula) then planning the rest of the time south beaches,Phuket area,etc. We fly out from Phuket Dec 2. I am wondering about accommodations, where and how long. I was thinking of spending a few days in a really nice resort (caping out at $550 per night as it is our belated honeymoon) We want it to have great views and beach is a must. The rest of the time, I was planning on a lower prices resort and doing activities most days. (

So:
1) Is this a good plan to split our stay in 2 places? or should we just stay in one resort in Phuket area for 7 days?
2) If we do pick two resorts, Should I pick a resort in the Phuket area or venture to other islands like Krabi, etc. for "nice luxury" experience?
2) Where should we stay in Phuket area? Don't want a place crowed with children, but also don't want a place that is totally dead at night, and isolated. Any good location to daytime and nighttime activities as well as a good resort? Beach is a plus. We have Renaissance booked, but not sure if we are satisfied that that....
