An Oldy But a Goody
After a 5 year absence from Phuket, I returned last week to visit an old friend, The Summer Breeze Hotel on Soi Sansabai in Patong. The place was just as I remembered it. Friendly and helpful staff, big clean rooms and plenty of ambience. Some things have changed. The location has become even better as the new mega-shopping and entertainment complex called Jungceylon is literally right around the corner. And, while I was there, the owners were upgrading the menu at the restaurant. I tasted a masaman chicken curry that was to die for. To be sure, this comfortable old hotel could use a facelift as some of the furniture is dated and worn. The owner (who by the way is on-site all day and half the night) showed me plans to upgrade the furnishings and décor before the high season. New furniture, flat screen TVs and a decidedly more tropical-modern look are all in the cards for Summer Breeze. I was happy to see the ownership doing what it takes to continue the Summer Breeze home-away-from-home tradition. When I got back, my business partner asked me where I stayed in Phuket. I told him “with an old friend”.
