[Sept holiday] Short trip to Phuket

After my trip to New Zealand (North Island) in April, I decided to celebrate Baby's birthday by having a short getaway in September. We purchased our air tickets from Tiger Airways to Phuket, Thailand. The flying time to Phuket was about 1hr 45 mins.


 
 
Prior to our departure, we purchased an airport-hotel transfer online that cost us THB700 for a one way trip. I took a random OOTD while waiting for the driver!



 
The car journey took 45mins to get to our pre-booked hotel, the 'Burasari Phuket Hotel Resort'. It is located in the heart of the bustling beach town of Patong, and it is also famous for the vibrant night scene.
 
 
 
 
Entering the resort premises was like walking into a tropical oasis, as I got into a relaxed state of mind instantly! The hotel was a lovely boutique resort that was surrounded by plenty of nature, with lush trees, gardens filled with pretty flowers, and quaint wooden bridges to top it off.

 
 
We received a warm welcome as soon as I got off the transfer. While we were checking in, the hotel staff served us refreshing welcome drinks. 








 
After we were done with our check-in procedure, we were told that our room was still under cleaning. We left our luggage with the concierge, and went over to nearby places to have our lunch. Our resort is located beside Patong Beach and is a 5 min walk away from 'Shopping OTOP', as well as the Hard Rock Café.

 
We stopped by San Sabai Restaurant, a Thai eatery place at Shopping OTOP for lunch. Baby started off with Singha Beer while I had Thai Ice Milk Tea. 

 
 
Both of us loved the Squid Salad, as it tasted delicious. 

 
The Tom Yum Goong was superb too! 

 
Baby had Chicken Basil Rice and I ordered a plate of Phad Thai for myself.


 
After our meal, we walked back to the resort to get into our room! I immediately fell in love with the room as it was amazingly lavish and comfy. The room was spacious and clean, and I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the refreshments in the room, including the contents of the minibar, were all complimentary! Drinks and snacks would be replenished without any extra charge daily! Thanks Baby for getting us such a wonderful room!
 
 
 
 
 I love the classic and elegant Thai-styled setting with wooden furniture and carvings, but overall, the room did give off a modern feel too. 


 
The Burasari Hotel Resort is very generous with their amenities, and they provide their guests with almost everything! 


 
We lepark-ed in the hotel as our flight was pretty early in the morning, as we didn't really get any sleep the night before. 

 


 
 
Time for dinner! We walked over to Bangla Road which was about 15mins away from where we stayed to get our meal. We settled for a dinner at Nicky's Bar!

 
After our meal, we had a short walk at the Patong Beach Night Entertainment / Night Market before heading back to our resort! 
 

 
Time to relax in the bathtub after a long day, and I shall continue on my Phuket Trip in my next post! Thanks for reading :)
