Thai winter sun
Saturday 05 October 2013
Each week, we invite three companies to offer us their best deal for a specific break. This week: an early winter beach holiday in Thailand, flying from Heathrow on 16 November. Each package includes 12 nights' accommodation. Prices are per person, based on two people travelling together.
Trailfinders - £859
Includes Malaysia Airlines flights to Bangkok via Kuala Lumpur, transfers, and B&B at Centra Coconut Beach Resort in Koh Samui. "Set on the beautiful Thong Tanote beach on the tranquil south-west tip of Samui, this modern resort offers fantastic value and peaceful seclusion," says Tiffany Cope (020-7368 1200; trailfinders.com).
Travelbag - £964
Includes Malaysia Airlines flights to Phuket via Kuala Lumpur and B&B accommodation at the Centara Khao Lak Seaview. Transfers are extra. "This resort offers picture-perfect beaches with a backdrop of unspoilt rainforest covered mountains," says Rianne Ojeh (0871 703 4240; travelbag.co.uk).
Kuoni - £1,536
Includes Thai Airways flights to Phuket via Bangkok, transfers, and B&B at the Holiday Inn Resort Phuket Mai Khao Beach.
