Been on two Asian Club Med hols previously at Cherating 2009 and Bintan 2010 and whilst the Phuket resort is not as secluded or pretty as the Malaysian and Indonesian resorts it is on a fantastic beach in lush tropical landscaping and pleasant enough.
As always food choice was good. Lots of Thai, Korean, Japanese, Chinese and Western (read French) options.
Kids didn't get involved in the show this time round but they are getting older so fair enough.
Archery and beach soccer excellent. Pitch and putt golf good, greens and clubs a bit ropey but great being able to rock up for a quick 9 holes whenever it takes your fancy.
Not the same 'wow factor' from our first two Club Med trips but guess that's only to be expected as the novelty wears off.
Still a good 4 out of 5 rating
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- In Kata Bay, the Club Med Village on the island of Phuket stretches out under palm trees caressed by the breeze. Bungalows, built in the style of the local “long-houses” and decorated with teak, silk and marble, exude a Zen spirit in this idyllic garden where you can practice yoga beneath the frangipani trees. A warm and clear sea opens up its underwater depths, filled with colorful fish and abundant flora. Adults and children alike can find tranquility and discover the Thai culture. ... more less
