The “four” Bandara Phuket Beach Resort is a very good option for a holiday, if not for the mass arrival of the Chinese. Breakfast ends before it starts, the food is eaten in half an hour, and everything that is not eaten, the Chinese usually take with them. Huge queues to the restaurant – and to the toilet (which is understandable). What pleases, the citizens of China are not very fond of beach holidays, 10-15 minutes on the beach in the evening or in cloudy weather is the maximum for them. The beach is at your disposal, clean, beautiful, located in the bay. 1/1
The bar has happy hours, good deals on discounts on alcoholic drinks. The main thing is to keep an eye on the scoreboard at the bar, they post offers there every day, it turns out really profitable, cheaper than in the city.
The number is excellent! Jacuzzi overlooking the garden, large bed, balcony, cleanliness. We were given a deluxe room without any extra charge (probably just because we are not Chinese). The territory is beautiful and well-groomed, around the jungle. There is an infinity pool, but there you already know who constantly occupy all the sunbeds, yelling and littering. So we didn't really swim in the pool.
The hotel is away from all the civilization and traffic of Phuket, but this is only a plus. There are several massage parlors with reasonable prices, there are a couple of cafes, in the evening even a couple of macaroons come with all sorts of snacks. By the way, do not go to small massage parlors, but go to normal spa centers, the prices are practically the same. Yes, they can offer a bunch of other services, but you say that for you – only massage, and you will relax in comfort, and not behind a screen by the road.1/1
Fruits are sold at every turn, delicious, juicy, sweet. The most delicious are those that are already overripe, they can be bought already cut in a jar. If you are going to buy with you, be sure to specify when you are going to eat: a day or two or take it with you, the merchant will select the fruit for you according to the degree of maturity.
Thailand is beautiful, but, unfortunately, now it will be very difficult to find good hotels for an adequate price. I really hope to return to this country in the fall, when the main excitement for travel subsides.
