Hello beanies! The boy and I are back from our little getaway to Phuket and yes, I am looking rather crispy now, especially around my shoulders. Urgh.
Loads to blog about but first up: Pictures of the gorgeous TwinPalms Resort in Phuket where we stayed:
I love the simplicity of their logo.
The large lobby with nice high ceiling.
The swimming pool in the middle of the resort.
Obviously quite a “couples” resort – just look at the poolside chairs!
Deck chairs in the pool.
Our room for the stay, #38.
It was located on the second level so we had to ascend steps to get to our room. It was actually better than a ground-level room because everyone could peek if you didn’t draw the curtains!
Long-stemmed roses greeted us when we entered our room. I told them that we were celebrating our wedding (never mind that it’s been 5 months!). We also received a complimentary bottle of champagne, completely chilled in an ice bucket.
The quiet corner of the room.
Chocolates presented in the shape of the Twin Palms logo. How cute!
The king-sized bed with 4 fluffy pillows and a skinny ‘bolster-looking’ pillow that I liked very muchg because I sleep with a bolster at home.
Check out the bathtub filled with rose petals. Ha. We didn’t get a chance to use it though!
The H-U-G-E bathroom with the basins on the right and the wardrobe on the left.
Another view of the room with a peek of the balcony.
Bathroom with separate basins – I LIKE!! Oh and did I mention that they had really wonderful smelling toiletries provided by the Twin Spa? I have never enjoyed hotel toiletries *this* much!
Located at the bedside table was this control panel that allowed us to control pretty much all the electrical stuff in the room. Interestingly, if I left the balcony door ajar, the “Door is OPEN” sign will light up and the aircon will automatically switch to ‘fan mode’.
Hwah. So intelligent lor.
