Phuket is a beautiful island and famous for its paradise beaches and stunning surrounding smaller islands. There are plenty of high-end seaside resorts so you can rest assured you will be in good hands if you plan a SPA holiday on a beautiful beach. And no worries, there is so much to do in Phuket that you don’t have to visit the crazy nightclubs and bars in Patong – unless you want to, of course ;) We decided to go for a relaxing SPA holiday with snorkelling and scuba diving instead, no craziness. This type of Phuket living really stayed with us, and considering the atmosphere, the views as well as some of the breathtaking properties and resorts, it’s really no wonder we came back home and searched around for sites like phuketbuyhouse.com and similar real estate websites because it would be very hard to leave such an island. Anyway, back onto this vacation…
We chose the Pullman Phuket Panwa Beach Resort which is located in a more quiet part of Phuket. The location was great with no loud and drunk tourists around and your own little private beach. Just a few hundred metres down the road you will find plenty of fish restaurants and also places to rent a scooter. With the scooter you can then explore more of the island and discover all the little hidden beaches of Phuket.
The food was great at the Pullman Phuket Panwa Beach Resort with both a la carte and buffet options. During breakfast they played quiet ambience music a la Café del Mar and you could sit outside while watching the sunrise. Yes.. I watched the sunrise even twice! That was because we joined one scuba diving and one snorkel trip that both started super early in the morning :)
The Pullman Panwa Beach Resort has beautiful SPA facilities with excellent massages and treatments. I had a pedicure and a few massages which were all perfect. And one of the therapists was so sweet, after the massage she created a beautiful updo with my hair and put some flowers in :)
The hotel also organises a romantic candlelight dinner for you on the hotel’s private beach. You can choose from a number of menus and will be offered lots of bubbles :) For our beach dinner the hotel staff decorated the entire part of beach with little lampions which looked super beautiful. And no worries, the beach dinner is set in a remote part, so there won’t be any other guests disturbing your romantic dinner time. FYI the below photo is a bit overexposed, there was only half as much light during dinner – so way more romantic ;)
And before you leave, you have to try out some nail design! There are lots of nail salons in Phuket that are specialised in stunning nail art. They will literally paint a little piece of art on your finger or toe nails!
