I’ve never been to Phuket, so when Hilton Phuket invited me over for a 3D2N retreat, I grabbed my friend Cheryl and we jetted off in search for some “nature-spiration”. Phuket is less than 2 hours away from Singapore via air, which makes it a great destination spot for weekend-vacation goers. I didn’t know this till I planned my trip, and I may just start looking at more short haul trips to Phuket from now on!
The Hilton Phuket compound is huge, and I mean 5 outdoor swimming pools and 15 spa treatment rooms big. The hotel is also situated right next to Karon Beach, where the sun beautifully sets. I would suggest you spend an entire day exploring the hotel’s compounds and its surrounding areas. I would definitely recommend the spa treatments at Hilton Phuket, I tried my first hot press ever there and it changed my spa-life forever.
Hilton Phuket was incredibly nice to send us on our way to a sunset yacht-party experience on board HYPE Boat Club on our second day. This boat is THE boat you need to be on when vacationing in Phuket. The boat will pick you from your hotel, (in our case, the Hilton Phuket lobby) and you will have to take an hour’s long bus ride to the Patong-located marina. The yacht experience runs from 1-7pm from Tues-Sun, and once you board the yacht, there will be free flow of drinks served to you (minus the alcohol), after drinks, you can choose to lounge on the bean bags, or grab a bite by their complimentary buffet lunch bar. The boat will take you through various islands, and you will get a chance to swim by a secluded beach. If you love sunsets, this yacht will bring you out to sea where you can get an undisturbed unparalleled view of the Phuket sunset.
We had to leave on the 3rd day quickly as I had work to catch up on, and it was regrettable we didn’t have more time to explore the island. If I had more time, I would definitely visit Patong Beach (15 Minutes away from Hilton Phuket), and Phang Nga Bay (I really regretted not having time for this). Perhaps next time Phuket! If you have any recommendations on where to go in Phuket, do leave a comment letting me know as well. x
