Phuket is a highly popular Thai island, with millions of tourists flocking there every month for a retreat at the many beaches. And because everything is so affordable, and that options are aplenty, you will never have to put up at shabby and dirty hotels. Home at Phuket can be a nice and quiet villa with your own private pool!
Some months ago, we took a flight out for a weekend getaway, and we chose to stay at the Kata Beach area. We are particularly fond of that area, because it is less crowded, slow and has a little rustic charm to it – just the way we like our Phuket to be. It was a vacation to relax, so we chose to put up at Metadee Resort and Villas – an ideal spot for couples who want to be lost in each other’s worlds.
Located at an hour’s drive from Phuket International Airport, Metadee offers a variation of deluxe rooms and villas at decent rates. Our recommendation has got to be the Private Pool Villa – a spacious one-room villa with floor-to-ceiling windows. The king-sized bed was so soft and inviting, and it was perfect for a deep slumber. At the corner of the room is also a resting corner with a mini bar, where we spent a lot of time reading our magazines and indulging in tropical fruits. There is also a walk-in wardrobe with a vanity desk, and the double-sink toilet came with a huge bath tub and nice shower area.
In the day, we enjoyed soaking up the sun at the outdoors of our villa, which is complete with a private plunge pool, a sheltered pavilion and an outdoor rain shower that is surrounded with tall palm trees. It was a simple kind of joy, and one that was much needed.
Metadee Resort & Villas also has a gorgeous pool that spans across the property, granting a pool view for most of its contemporary rooms. And if you are lazy to get out of the resort, head over to Himmaphan (‘cashew nut’ in Thai) Restaurant for a meal of Asian and European cuisine, complete with a chill-out bar by the pool where you can order your favourite ice-cream and drinks.
