333 Moo 3, Thalang District, Phuket 83110, Thailand
Fabulous minimalistic design hotel on Mai Khao Beach! When you step in, it feels so different from most other 5* hotels in Phuket: grass growing through walkways, rough concrete walls, spacious empty spaces, not everyone will like it, but if you do – it might become your favorite hotel in Phuket! We stayed in Sala Pool Villa, it has large private swimming pool, and open style bathroom. Villa is surrounded by tall walls, so nobody can see you swimming. Beach area is very quiet, because hotel is located in natural reserve – there are no sun loungers on the beach, nobody walking around – you might just meet people who are staying in nearby hotels. In October sea was still a bit rough, hotel staff told us that sea is good for swimming during winter months, that’s why we spent most of the time swimming in our villa’s pool. We went for dinner to hotel’s restaurant – most of the tables were booked that night, I guess it is very popular among locals. Food was outstanding and also there was Traditional Thai Dance performance during dinner. If you like design hotels – don’t miss Sala Phuket!
