Honeymoon Phuket - Thailand
We had an absolutely fantastic time in Thailand, we stayed at Marina Phuket Resort in Karon. It was about a 15 min drive from the airport, they picked us up for free. We travelled Air Asia and the trip was about $600 return each from the Gold Coast which is great value.
The hotel was one of the best I have ever had the pleasure of staying at. It was half price as well because it was the rainy season (not that we saw much rain). The hotel is located in an old coconut plantation which is now a lush rainforest backing onto the beach.
The hotel food was amazing, a free American breakfast with a staggering array of fresh fruit. There was also French pastry and Thai food each morning.
The local baby elephant visited every day and we enjoyed the $8 hour long massages available on the beach or the local parlor. The local food was also great value and really hit the spot. Local beers also went down a treat, Chang being my favourite. We also sampled cocktails down by the pool.
I'll be posting some more blogs of our day trips and adventures soon!
