PHUKET TRAVEL DIARY

Our first day in Thailand couldn’t have started off better. After a long flight we finally arrived to Sri Panwa Phuket in the evening. We were taken to our private pool villa and we actually nearly died from how beautiful it was! The space had everything we needed, a great pool to chill by and the most amazing sunset view and the best part, our bed was completely surrounded by the pool – fancy, right? I’m not going to lie, we spent the entire 3 days in our resort without moving. They had everything you needed. The in-house restaurant was great, I recommend the Papaya-prawn salad – best ever! And their private beach… it felt like a dream.

After enough chilling at Sri Panwa resort we were ready to be social and have a night out down town. We were quickly transported to Hyatt Regency Phuket, the perfect place to stay if you are looking for a little adventure and want see a bit of the Thai culture at night. After a quick shower we went downstairs for a couple of drinks at the hotel and then went to the bigger city Patong, which was literary built from markets. You could smell food from every corner of the city and we also experienced a local massage. Very addictive! We also went for a little shop at the night markets and the local beach where everyone was chilling watching the sunset.

We spent our last day in Thailand at The Surin Phuket, it’s an amazing place for a group of friends who are looking for great food and adventures to little islands. The hotel was very social, we spent out time lying under the umbrella’s by the pool and sipping on fresh coconut water. This place was built for relaxing! We stayed in a small cottage house surrounded with palm trees and a private beach. I have to mention the breakfast! I have never eaten better fruit in my life! We had the best breakfast at this hotel, you have to try the coconut porridge made from the fresh coconut on the island. On our last day, we went on a day trip to see Phi Phi island and Bamboo Island. It was the clearest water I have ever seen. That was the cherry on top to end such an amazing trip to Thailand.
