Travelling is more of a sentiment, I feel.
To travel is to live. And I agree. A lot of emotion goes into a trip from its planning to its execution. And then when you are finally there, the moments that pass you by are forever.
There are different kinds of travellers. Some of them are spontaneous, packing bags and leaving towns kind. Some are the planning kind, from itinerary to documenting everything that they did on the trip and ensuring the order of the journey. I think I am somewhere in the middle. The ones who are flexible enough about the plans and spontaneous about the things-to-do when they reach. I am just a little picky about the accommodation, though. However, I do love the hostel-feel too when I am backpacking, but mostly, I am the resort girl.
So this is also an appreciation post for the resort I stayed at in Phuket: Kalima Resort and Spa. Quelle beauté!
Located about a 5-minute drive away to Patong and Kamala beaches, this gorgeous property is everything your holiday needs. If you are craving some me-time and need a short escape from life’s chaos, this is where you need to land up. So, it takes about an hour to reach the resort from Phuket International Airport. The place is just 10-15 minute drive from one of the busiest and fun streets of Phuket where you can shop, party, eats the local food and makes new friends. And while you’re there, do not forget to ride a Tuk-Tuk.
The resort has wonderfully lit and spacious rooms with refreshing baths with Jacuzzi that also provide you with a magnificent view of Phuket’s skyline at night. It is breathtaking, really!
The main highlight of this resort is its INFINITY POOL which has the most exotic views of Phuket, and there’s a bar! If you are a water-baby just like me, you are going to be all gaga!
The breakfast place on the top floor not only has a great view but also has an artificial beach for you to sit and enjoy Thai delicacies with a variety of fruits and salads. It is scrumptious! I swear I have never had such an amazing Thai curry and noodles anywhere else in the world and I am not even a foodie.
I saved the BEST THING ABOUT THIS PLACE for the last: THE SPA. Keep this in mind: whenever you plan a trip to Phuket, always keep the spa for the last. This is the experience you want to carry home with you. I had one of the best massages of my life along with a full-body scrub. Not only it was one of the best Thai massages, but I met this lovely girl, and she taught me how to make the cranberry tea they served.
The best part about this place is the hospitality you get from the staff here. From your room service, reception, trip advisor to the masseuse. There is nothing that can go wrong with smiles and kindness. It was the best time I had in a long-long time.
If anyone’s travelled to Phuket recently, comment for sure, I’d love to know your experience.
