- visitors of hotel website already know all what they need to know - facilities and amenities, distance and reviews - all that they can read anywhere else - so hotelier don't actually need to duplicate it (returning guests also don't need all that info), and can use their website as a playing-space, or anything different - but not what its was supposed to be before;
- usually there are no point for small hotel today to work too hard for the web-traffic on hotel website - more reasonable to concentrate on content making it more attractive and live;
- visitors of hotel websites reading texts and blog posts with more attention, than on "same-same" robot's info-areas. So its not a right place for copying text, which is already presented somewhere-sometime.
Global booking monsters became too global, Asiarooms sold and disappeared, and even Tipadvisor stopped to be look like "non-commercial review's portal" and now look more like online-booking-space. All that opening new horizons for small hotels and resorts of Koh Phangan, if we'll not looking further. Couple of new trends and facts what I see:
1. Website of "Morning Star Resort" in Baan Kai - night colors in nature rhythm.
2. "Blessing Places" - three hotels selected by common theme, just one room type in each - made with same template to be posted onrelated web-pages and blog posts - can be from 3 different destinations.
3. "Dozen Hotels" - 12 best-in-a-kind hotels in area, destination of city, each has a page, powered by online booking-engine.
The website popularity of small resort or hotel with 10-30 rooms are among 500-1000 visitors/months - enough to try the best to entertain your future guests and ask then them to book online. Cooperation and common websites of 3-12 hoteliers opening much more possibilities. Collecting those selections of 3-12 hotels on bigger platforms = real part of total occupancy. That's, to type shortly, how I see the Bright Future for small hotel websites on Phangan and similar-sized destinations! Contact us from Kalos, if you want to be in one of our next projects and ideas.

Phangan airport: latest news.
Whilst skeptical island residents don't believe to see the planes in a sky above before their reincarnation, unknown person from Suratthani Gov. office contacted us and avowed that first high tech vehicles already ordered and should arrive not later than 21 April 2017.
That VIP and very mysterious official also said that besides Bangkok tickets from Phangan airport to few other destinations around the world will be available, including Phangan-Rio de Janeiro, Phangan-Liverpool and Phangan-Madagascar, what let us hope to hear even better music and see more lemurs in Phangan jungles, and maybe even will stop Big Business (its creeping) from destroying the island ecology.
Random trip to the nearest province, Nakhon Si, eventually lead us up to creating related website and changing our current life from Phangan to Nakhon Si Thammarat.
In few points, where business will be at the bottom:
Beauty of Nakhon Si nature. Its has a really grand scope!
There are about 20 waterfalls in Nakhon SI Thammarat.
Water is cold, refreshing, clear and tasty. In every waterfall you'll see jacuzzi style spots to lie on. Among the inhabitants are unique plants and funny animals, which I never met before.
Staying at the "right place" you can easily reach 7 or 8 waterfalls. And be happy!
Forgot to mention: waterfall visits are the source of good health and positive mind.
Karom waterfall on photo at right is not the biggest here.
Going on with a story, where are the river and a waterfall there is also a mountain. And its also means that the sky favoring us amazing pictures every day.
And the beaches.
Sandy and crowd-less, have a good water to swim all year round. And pink dolphins who're living around Khanom.
Nakhon Si Thammarat culture and history
Its actually the same concept. Ancient history is a basis for modern culture. Being before powerful Ligor, or Tambralinga Kingdom, land still have all the sacred spots of ancestors. They all has a temples and people paying a homage on a special days of celebration. Buddhism harmonically come to the Hindu religious roots and makes a awesome mix.
Culture includes national dance Nora, Nang Talung shadow play theatre, moon calendar celebrations.
Business opportunities of Nakhon Si Thammarat
Its easy to imagine with few factors below:
look at the Chomlay resort presentation. Located between Sichon & Tha Sala, in 40 min drive from Khanom, this is the unique beach property project, prices starts from 1,9 mln THB for the house near on the beach side, and this is including the land ownership!
