travels: pullman arcadia phuket

we moved to another resort during the second half of our trip just to get a change of environment. The downside of staying in two resorts in one trip is you tend to compare the former and the latter.IMG_3208IMG_3210

At Amatara, it was peaceful and quiet. Remember I said we had the pool to ourselves most of the time? And over here, there’s a crowd everywhere – the pool, at breakfast, at the buggy pick-up point. Well, that’s the difference between a big chain hotel and a boutique hotel.

But overcrowding and somewhat lack of service aside, this place is actually quite beautiful – well-maintained grounds, gorgeous pool with a breathtaking view of the ocean and a stunning beach.IMG_3207IMG_2976IMG_3024

The kids club is equally good. They have a range of activities to keep the kids occupied. We abandoned Elisa (at her request) at the kids club every afternoon for some couple time (read: happy hour) at the pool nearby. IMG_2903IMG_3049fish feeding

This resort is really near the airport and if you don’t mind the crowd, this is a perfect place to stay if you are in Phuket for a short getaway and they have stunning sunset to boot 🙂 IMG_3073
