2. What I am missing out on as a Gold member? Is it worth trying to do a Diamond challenge for this? I can see that Diamonds get two more drink coupons, any other differences?

Thanks!
We rented a pretty small car to get to the Conrad. No issues. While I'd prefer the comfort of the SUV, we thought there were a few benefits of the smaller car. Easier to park, easier to fit through tight spaces and an alley or two. We'd run out for a massage almost daily, even as far as Chaweng.

I don't think you're missing out on much as gold. We were fairly happy with our treatment as gold. I fancied the breakfast, and that was the primary gold perk for me. As always, meter expectations- This is Thailand.
