Lovely flower bracelets made with Sampaguita & orchid. Smelled soooo good! I wonder why we in the Philippines don’t use the Sampaguita more, when it is actually native to us?
Upon arrival at the airport we were happy to find a kiosk for tourists giving out a map of Phuket, brochures and a free Thai SIM card. ) Yup, they were giving free True Move SIMs at the airport – so convenient!
We came out to a very sunny and warm day. (Thank God because there was forecast of rain showers and thunderstorms!) We were told to look for the guy in purple (the signature color of Sala Phuket Boutique Resort and Spa) and he wasn’t hard to spot.
When we arrived in the resort, my eyes were wide as saucers. It was so pretty and there were so many things to capture on camera. (I was pretty much snapping at everything during the entire weekend – I just wanted to capture the beauty of it all.) My photo of the entrance does not do it justice so I’m not going to post it (my photography skills aren’t there yet) and it’s hard to describe so I won’t even try. You’ll just have to visit Sala Phuket and check it out for yourselves.
It was modern, chic, minimalist and yet they used local/native elements that made it a unique Thai experience. Suffice it to say that my husband hit a home run in picking this resort. He knows me so so well! And many thanks to Khun SV for hooking him up and recommending this resort! Next time I see you I am so gonna hug you! Thank you!!! =D
The stationery in the bottom is a handwritten welcome note from the General Manager. It was indeed memorable Mr. Ashenden!
*Girly Side-note: I usually don’t use lotions because they are not potent enough for my dry skin or when they are, it’s too thick & sticky for tropical weather. However I loved the Sala peppermint lotion so much that when we left my hubby had them bottle one up and bought it from them to bring home. It’s über moisturizing and minty cool – perfect for the beach! I didn’t actually have to get a pedicure when I got home because my feet were not dry and so soft because of the lotion.
What a fabulous welcome to Phuket from Sala Resort! And such thoughtful attention to detail…I felt pampered already.
Phuket is pronounced as Poo-KET not Foo-ket. I think this blog perfectly explains it. And Thailand is pronounced as TIE-land, the H is silent. Honey, you know who you are.
