Currently a Taxi from Le Meridien to Phuket airport is about 1600THB. Patong is further, so maybe add 150THB. A good taxi service is operated by Mr Sam, who is highly recommended. You can pre-book by contacting him by email at siam_intouch@yahoo.com.

PS
Khao Lak to Phuket airport is about 70 minutes, add 10-15 to get to Patong.

Taxis from Khao Lak to Phuket will be, depending on your bargaining skills, between 1500 and 2000 Baht. If you want him to wait, you have to pay him something for the wait, and something again for the return trip. I would imagine the total would end up being something like 2,500 Baht.

BTW, I wish I could do the airport to Patong in 10-15 minutes. Minimum 30 minutes.

OK, just a rough estimate, don't go there myself! Travel time from Khao Lak will also depend on wether it's from Bang La On, Bang Niang or Khuk Khak, naturally.
