24th In Phuket - Day 1

HELLO! Finally a non sponsored post. 
Let me try to revive this space with an update on my recent trip to Phuket in celebration of my 24th birthday!
Its our 3rd time there in 2 years and we're still not sick of it. 

After some research, we settled for the Sri Panwa Resort located in a quiet corner of South-East Phuket.
This part of Phuket is relatively quieter, perfect for some quality time with your other half. 
It costed us SGD800+ a night for the Ocean View Pool Suite, a little pricey but it was one helluva amazing experience. I should let the pictures do the talking (: 

We stayed at Cape Panwa Hotel (Just 5 minutes drive away from Sri Panwa) on our first night because we took the evening flight there and only arrived in Phuket at about 7ish. Would have been silly of us to pay for the Pool Suite at Sri Panwa since more than half the day was gone. 

J arranged for hotel transfer (1400 Baht) and the ride took approximately an hour.

What greeted us upon arrival!

My favourite corner at the lobby.

The pool area.
It was already pretty dark when we got there and I have no idea how my camera managed to make the skies looked so blue. Jacob (My few months old EPL-6) you're awesome :P 

Where we spent the night!

Not too shabby for SGD190!

 There was even an outdoor Jacuzzi tub

& a spacious lounge area (: 

Used a tram (1 minute ride) to Panwa House for dinner after we dropped off our baggages.

Chui after-flight faces calls for B/W filter hahaha
(Don't ask me what happened to my boyfriend's face in the first and third photo lol)

Panwa House serves Thai food and is located right next to the Cape Panwa Beach.
This colonial era Sino-Portuguese house has been a Phuket icon for over a hundred years. 

It was a pleasure just looking at the furnishings. 

When in Phuket, drink coconut juice :P 
I had at least one a day throughout our 5 days there.

For 2!

It was the perfect meal to kick-start our vacation in Phuket 
and we called it a night early with our very happy bellies (:
