We stayed at the Mai Khao Beach Resort for three nights in January this year as a stop-over from Chiang Mai to Penang.
We decided on this resort as we'd received an offer from Bangkok Airways for the three nights for US100 including transfers and we snapped it up... the only condition was that we sit through a pitch for the Vacation Club and that we qualified (income, etc).
On confirmation of our booking I emailed the resort and requested ground-floor accommodation with a plunge pool which they agreed upon with our payment of an additional US50 at check-in.
There was a big problem with no car to meet us at the airport so I phoned the resort and they said to stay put and that a car would be sent... not a good start.
Check-in went smoothly and we found ourselves ensconced in a huge apartment with two bedrooms (ensuites), a living/dining room with a large kitchen/bar, courtyard and, the wonderful plunge pool situated just outside the master bedroom.
Breakfast was included in the deal and there was a great selection... the pool bar was 'chummy' and, we ordered in with room service which was efficient.
We had a hire car delivered and picked-up at the resort and spent most of the time driving around Phuket seeing the sights and tasting the cuisine.
All-in-all it was an enjoyable interlude.More
