You will have a great time. People always ask me whether I like Bali or Phuket better and I just can't answer as they are similar in many ways but also very different. The two things I prefer about Thailand are 1. There are less Aussies around (why travel o/s just to spend your time with the same people???). We just returned to Bali after 7 trips to Thailand and I cringed a bit sometimes with the thongs/singlet/loudness of it all. The Aussies all think they are best friends with the Balinese and think they have the only driver on the island you can ring on a mobile and book. Having said that we did have a great time and would go back. 2. The food is MUCH better in Thailand. Bali tries hard but just isn't as good.
We stayed at the Banthai for Christmas last year and LOVED it. We had a pool room (ground floor). These are the best - and about five steps to the pool. Most of my family had upstairs rooms and they were also great but I liked being on the ground floor. Great hotel you lucky things.
Same! Same! You will enjoy The Banthai!
