It was a bit difficult for me to fall in love in Phuket after I already did with Bangkok, I think Phuket is still a really nice city for nice holidays. Although I didn’t explore much outside this trip but I really enjoyed a few days there in a nice hotel with beautiful views, friendly local people, good food and my own sweet time. I felt a little bit like a tourist as long as I’m not at home in Singapore or Bangkok city.
This post I’m going to share some reviews on the recent hotel I was staying, Pullman Phuket Arcadia Naithon Beach.
This hotel is pretty near to the airport which is about 10-15 minutes by car. It’s not in town areas but I love how quiet and peaceful this beach is. I didn’t see much of a tourist and there is still the true beauty of the old Phuket I used to remembered when I was a kid. If your main purpose is to party hard in Phuket, this is not the areas you want to be. For me, this is great.
They have really nice welcoming and relaxing areas for both indoor and outdoor. I could just sit there for many hours with my current reading book and some nice cocktails.
Lovely pool too I’d say. It’s just right outside the breakfast areas. I almost forget to mention how great their breakfast was. It’s one of best hotel breakfast (in Thailand) with variety of choices. If you have a chance, try their local noodle soup. It was so delicious I needed to take another bowl which is very rare for me especially for breakfast.
This is how the beach right in front of the hotel looks like.

Well, my only inconvenience was that I had to wait for hotel car/cart to take me back to my room and sometimes it could take up to 10-15 minutes. However, I’d still recommend this hotel for those who is looking for a vacation here. I had an excellent stay.
Before finishing this post, I will also share with you one more place to go in Phuket, Cafe Del Mar in Kamala Beach, for a nice relaxing dinner by the beach. Good food and drinks with nice music. The sunset too, was really worth waiting for.
Till then, enjoy and look forward to the holiday season soon.
