Hotel Hopping In Phuket - with reviews!

Finally back to blogger town with another vacation post, this time in....

 Phuket
When it comes to my accommodations on holidays,  I am very pedantic and I FBI the hell out of
the hotels on my consideration list.I guess that makes me a tough critic. I also develop OCD as soon as I check into my hotel even though my room looks like massacre.

Hotel 1: Bloc Hotel

Bloc Hotel cost me about $110 SGD on Agoda.
When travelling to budget hotels, I always bring all my money and passport out with me. The bloc hotel is literally across the street from Patong beach and sandwiched between numerous street stores. Right next to it, Surf House Patong and family mart
Am I the only one who loves shopping in Thailand's convenience store? Everything is so.damn.cheap
Look at my buys!


 Back to the hotel, it will only take you a few minutes walk to Savoey, a famous seafood restaurant where you pick your own fresh sea creatures for dirt cheap price.
If I nick picked, water temperature was very hard to get right. It was switching from boiling water to Antarctic ice without me turning the facet.

Hotel 2: Amatara

One has to spoil herself at least one night at a 5-Star hotel.
With all that Amatara has to offer, it was worth every 320 dollar. The royal treatment here is enough to make you feel like a million bucks and the landscaping is seriously the best I've seen, anywhere.







Bring the resort map along with you otherwise you could go in circles without knowing as the facilities are scattered.



Path down to our hotel. & over view of the hotel below:


I thought the cabinet  beside the sofa was a closet or something but it's actually the pantry/bar! Everything in there is complimentary.





Working desk - writing pad and stationery provided.



Facilities overview:

The infinity pool is without a doubt, my favourite part of the resort, nothing is more relaxing than sitting by the poolside and staring into blue infinitude.



Spa & Yoga Area:

The staircase leading up to the spa center from the lobby, felt like I was walking up to a mansion!
so.much.foilage



I think this is where yoga lessons are held under the pretty pavilion, facing the ocean. The view here is better than the pool because it is on a higher magnitude, and there wasn't anybody there most of the time.





At the entrance of the restaurant, I love the doors so much, can I make it my bedroom door please?

The food:



Breakfast


Dinner


View from our balcony at night, *starry eyes*
Anyway, nothing but compliments for this hotel, I need to go back!

Hotel 3: ZEN Premium Soi Nayang

They say save the best for the last but this hotel was the worst.
Why?

1. Hair was spotted here and there
2. Sofa was WET
3. Bed sheet was dirty.

I got the staff to change new sheets but...needless to say, I will never go back nor should anyone stay there.
