When we talk about beaches in Phuket, the first place we'll think of is Patong Beach. For me, I don't like crowded places. I would like to be relaxed and take a comfortable journey and don't do activity so much. So I will make a Phuket trip for three peaceful beaches. Another thing is I don't like to stay in an only one hotel for the whole trip. Every time when I go sightseeing I will change hotel every night. I go to Phuket for three nights; I stay in three hotels at three beaches. I think it is a good idea to get a unique atmosphere from each hotel. Every image isn't edited I 'd prefer to remain it real since I sometimes see a plenty of nice pictures from the Internet which they don't look that nice when I actually get there. So I don't want you to feel I am fooling you.
Day 1 - The Windmill Phuket Hotel, Yanui Beach
Most people don't know this hotel and I didn't heard about it either. I have found it in a foreigner's review. Yanui beach is a small beach near Laem Promthep Cape. This hotel is around 800 meters away from LaemPromthep . This hotel offers a free bike, you can ride to the beach. It isn't located by the beach but you can walk to seaside, around 200 meters. This hotel is surrounded by local people's places so I can experience local environment. I have booked a deluxe garden view room through Booking.com (2,000 THB/night). I like this website because I don't need to use a credit card I can pay when I arrive at the hotel. I think it is very convenient. When I check in at this hotel an employee upgrade my room to deluxe pool access. I'm so impressed at the beginning when I check in. The pool is very beautiful. The atmosphere is good. The foods are so delicious. For my opinion I give it five stars.
The spacious room make me feel like home.
One of the hotel staff tells me about the windmill viewpoint which is just a short walk from Yanui beach. It is a great spot to enjoy the beautiful sunset. In the late afternoon I ride a bike from the hotel to Yanui beach. I'm so impressed with the beach at the first sight because it is just like what I have expected. The beach is small and peaceful. It is perfect to see the sunset.
From Yanui Beach you can see a windmill where is the viewpoint. It isn't far from beach.
Now my bike and I are ready to get up to the viewpoint. Let's go!
I thought it wasn't this far but it actually is. Anyway, it is worth the tire. The small beach in the picture is Yanui Beach. That road is heading to Laem Promthep Cape.
This is the windmill you can see at the hotel as well. I'm not sure whether hotel name come from it .
I had a plan to go to Laem Promthep Cape for the sunset but I am afraid I can't reach there on time. Actually, I'm too tired to ride there. On the way back to the hotel, it is danger to ride a bike down the hill but I really have fun doing it. I stop by the Yanui beach, take a walk and enjoy the romantic moment before the twilight.
When I reach the hotel. The first thing I do is jumping into the pool and enjoy the swimming time. Then I get back to the room for a full rest because the next day I have to check out and move to another hotel.
Day 2: All Seasons – Nai Han beach
All Seasons Hotel is quite large. I have booked a standard room (1,400 THB/ night) This hotel looks like a resort and is located on the beachfront. You just walk across the road, the beach is right there in front of you. The hotel has rooms with seaview. I have no pictures of the bedroom . The hotel is good in overall. In my opinion I give 3.5/5 I deduct it for the water. I don't feel clean and fresh enough when I take a bath. The afternoon of that day it has a heavy rain that make me can't see the blue sea of Phuket. It doesn't matter because after the rain the sea becomes blue and clear again in the evening.
People say that every cloud has a silver lining.
I am surprised when I notice there is a tree with lots of shoes on it. If your shoes are lost, you can find ones under this tree.
Today I don't do many thing because it has been raining for almost the whole day. I'm a little disappointed and hope the weather will be nice tomorrow. I would like to see the blue sea.
Day 3: Sugar Marina Resort – Nautical, Taka Beach
It takes 3-5 minutes on foot from the hotel to Taka Beach. The rooms are designed in the same way as we are in a cruise. The colors of the rooms are white and blue. I get a deluxe pool view room. Why is the deluxe pool view? We will know the answer tonight. It's very special. I give it 6 out of 5 as it gives me beyond my expectation.
Because I am afraid it will rain again today and I'm very hungry so I apply sunscreen on my body and walk away from the hotel to Taka beach. During the way I find a lot of restaurants. I see a big fried ice-creams café. It is too hot to say no to an ice-cream.
The fried ice-cream is so big that I can't eat all alone. We can choose the flavor of ice-cream. The ice-cream will be served with honey and chocolate sauce after that I sit for a while. Then I go walking to have a look around the Taka Beach.
There are a great number of people on the beach but it isn't so crowded. There are some places for people who love peace. There are some rocks on the beach . If you notice you will see some shrimps, shells, crabs and fish are swimming around the rocks.
Stone patio area is suitable to sit and enjoy the great views, drink cool juice and see fish swim in the rock.
I see the garbage in the sea. If you go to travel, you should keep it clean. I sit on the beach until it starts to rain. So I hurriedly keep my belongings to get back to hotel. The hotel provides bags, mats, umbrellas and drink to be served. In the evening, it's time for the show of the hotel pool.
Swimming in the pool among the glitter that it makes me feel special.
Thank you for reading my review: This is the first review for me. I apologize if there are any mistakes.
