    Lucky,
    Did you not read the LMKL thread on FT? You'd have known that they don't do the upgrades :) Yes, lots of wildlife there! Enjoyed my stay in an ocean front villa last year!

    @ Carl -- That's correct. It's unfortunate, since he mentioned that they often upgrade Plats from a basic room to lagoon villa, though don't provide any sort of upgrades between villas, even though the hotel was at 45% occupancy. Rather disappointing, though in the end negotiated to pay an extra 1000THB/night for the pool villa.

    Frankly I wish I would have just booked a basic room and gone for a suite. There's more wildlife here than in a friggin' zoo.

    @A Kimyai @lucky

    The Similan Islands are definitely one of the best places in the world to dive. Unfortunately the park is closed right now. You can only visit/dive there November-May.

  5. Carl Guest

    @Lucky - so you booked the Lagoon Villa? I suppose they don't upgrade Plats to the pool Villa?

    @ A Kimyai -- Thanks for the suggestion! I might just have time, so will look into that.

    @ Puck @ hartd -- Actually had a bit of an upgrade "issue." I booked a villa, though didn't realize it wouldn't have a plunge pool. I ended up negotiating them down on price for the "upgrade," though am a bit disappointed they didn't automatically do that given that the hotel is pretty empty. As far as...

As far as Platinum benefits go, got free internet, breakfast, and some drinks at the bar. That's the extent of it.

    @ Chris -- Sadly it sounds like I'll miss you!

    @ Stacey -- The restaurant is phenomenal. They had an Italian buffet last night and it was the best Italian food I've had outside of Italy. Apparently it's rated the best Italian restaurant in Thailand, and I can see why.

    @ Renata -- It is indeed!

    Ben, we'll be there this Friday for 7 nights, I don't suppose you'll still be there? Safe travels!

  9. hartd Guest

    what platinum benefits did you receive upon check-in?

  10. Stacey Guest

    You have to try the Smoked Salmon Brushetta at Bangsak Grill if you like salmon! It's amazing!

  11. Pegasus Guest

    Yep, Gary said it. LM Khao Lak. Walk along the beach Rim Lay to have some cheap delish Thai food.

  12. Puck Member

    Hope you are having a great time. I assume the villa was due to SPG platinum upgrade. What type of room did you actually book?

  13. A Kimyai Guest

    Do you have time to dive the Similan Islands? It's ranked as one of the top ten best dive sites in the world, right outside your villa. So close, yet so far...

  14. Drew Guest

    Ahhh, the LMKL. Love it. Just avoid eating the unrefrigerated seafood from the beachfront vendors! But you'll get your THB300 massages on the beach just north of the resort, just past the 2BR villa.

  15. Renata Guest

    Is that your personal villa?
