My 3 girlfriends and I made a short holiday to Phuket and stayed at Heritage Hotel Phuket. It was a lovely hotel with friendly staff. The room is clean and comfortable. The only drawback was that the hotel does not have multi plug as my charger is a 3-plug pin while theirs is a 2-plug pin. I ended up with no handphone service which could prove to be a blessing in disguise.
Though it rained from the time we arrived till the time we depart(!), this stay did not damper our mood and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. There were pockets of sunshine where we manage to have a quick walk to the beach to enjoy the waves and sun. When it was rained, we would spent our time lounging on one of the 4 cabanas located on the swimming pool at the 3rd floor of our hotel. It was just amazing as each cabana had a roof, to keep us dry where we enjoyed the breeze coming from the rain and hearing the pitter patter of the drizzle. We just put our towels on the large bean bags on the cabana, lie down with a good book and chat or snooze among ourselves. At one point, we even went down to pack fried rice from the nearest restaurant and order drinks from the pool bar and had a good picnic from our cabana.
Our hotel stay comes with breakfast which though has limited choice, but was delicious. If you don't feel like hotel food, some walking distance to the hotel's right, you will come to a restaurant serving authentic thai food. It was spicy and delicious! As for our dinner, just behind hotel was an array of shop houses with lots of restaurant pubs and massage centres. You need to pass by a bazaar of shops to get to these shoplots. We even manage to do daily massage at a reasonable price.
The taxi in front of our hotel were friendly people and we got one to take us to Patong on our first night, for our first cabaret show and we manage to have dinner at one of the shopping complex there.
As our main intention to go Phuket was just to relax, enjoy the sun (sometimes rain), sand and unwind, this was exactly what we had done. We love it.
