Thailand, known as the country of pushing British taste pallets to the test, as the place to go to in Asia, as having the beach where The Beach was filmed and as having some of the most stunning architecture we have ever seen.
You will be staying in the Sun Hill Hotel, which is a boutique hotel located in Patong Beach. It has received a TripAdvisor rating of 89% and has also received a Certificate of Excellence for 2014. It has both an outdoor pool, which can be used at all times of year because the weather is generally pretty hot, and a spa. The spa does, naturally, incur extra charges for treatments etc. but it’s always nice to know that it’s there if you want it.
Your flights will be with Etihad, the national airline of Abu Dhabi. This airline is a really well-regarded airline and the customer service is meant to be one of the best. It is worth noting that your flight does involve a stop over in Abu Dhabi, don’t worry though, the airport stays open 24/7 so you’ll be able to keep busy whilst you’re there. It is also worth noting that because of the length of time your flight will take you, two days are added onto the holiday length. You will be spending 13 nights in a hotel and 2 nights on a plane!
Whilst in Thailand there is plenty for you to do. In the immediate area of your hotel you can do a variety of water sports like jet skiing, wake boarding etc. etc. You could also, if you were feeling particularly adventurous do a jungle bungee jump, the views from which are meant to be amazing! If you want to go further afield then that’s also completely possible. I would recommend pre-booking various excursions if that’s what you want to do, so that you know when and where you have to be to go on them.
Going into the centre of Phuket is a must and from there you can get to just about anywhere! The excursions leaving from Phuket range from stopping in national parks, to snorkelling in caves to going to see beautiful temples. It really is completely up to you to decide how much, or how little, you want to do on this holiday!
This offer is available to you through ebookers.com for only £598 per person. Included in this is your hotel and your flights, which is really good considering flights alone can cost more than the cost of the entire trip!
This is a holiday of a life time. With a great hotel as your base, providing a really good nights sleep, you will wake up every morning refreshed and excited for what’s to come. You won’t want to come home, but it will be a holiday to leave a lasting impression.
