Vanesha’s story - a past valued staff member

 

Paton Beach - Patong is the island’s oldest and most developed tourist area, with a wide range of accommodation and activities within close proximity of 3,000 metre crescent shaped beach.

 

Learn to dive, go sailing, take a local tour, join in a local beach football match, or for complete pampering, visit the spa and massage. Lots to keep the kids happy too (even McDonalds.) Shopping till you drop & don’t forget Patong’s famous nightlife. Check out the latest pubs and bars & the most sought after restaurants.

 

If you come alone or with your family, Patong has something for everyone.

 

Kata Beach: The pleasant bay of Kata, entices and charms many visitors with its white sands and clear waters. A lot less crowded than Patong and very popular with families, Kata is an all round favourite due to its spectacular palm-lined beach, great restaurants, lively but not raucous nightlife and varied accommodation options - all close to the beach. From May to October surfers flock to catch Kata’s waves and from November to April the beach is alive with sunseekers. 15mins drive from Patong beach.

 

Karon Beach: Karon Beach is very long, 5km(3 miles), with fine white sand that squeaks when you walk on it throughout its entire length. At the north end, in front of the lake, the beach is usually deserted, making it a great spot to go if you want the beach to yourself!! Karon’s long beautiful beach means that there’s lots of hotels really close to the beach. For this reason sea view rooms are aplenty so can be more affordable in Karon than elsewhere in Phuket & being so long the sun beds are well spaced out so it never feels crowded.

 

Phi Phi Island: Just a short 45-minute journey from Phuket will transport you to the tropical paradise and famous islands of Koh Phi Phi. With a Kodak moment with every view, it’s the ultimate tropical getaway in Thailand. Fine, white sandy beaches and breathtaking rock formations rising from the vivid turquoise waters that surround the islands will instantly confirm you’ve arrived in paradise.

 

Exploring Phi Phi couldn’t be more fun, with scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking or rock climbing being the most popular methods, when taking a break from the silky soft sands.
