Taking Breathtaking Time
La Flora Resort and Spa could not be closer to where the action is either by day, for shopping in Jungceylon (5 minutes walk), or after the sun sets. Less than 200 metres from Soi Bangla, the heart of the ‘Party Town’ known as Patong, this hotel is most certainly one of the classiest in Phuket.
Set right on the beach it is a great place to people watch, Andaman Sea gaze at, or to simply chill out. The total of 67 rooms consists of 30 Deluxe Pool View and 24 Deluxe Pool Access rooms. There are also 6 Pool Villas, 2 Beach Pool Villas, 2 Beach Grand Pool Villas, and finally 3 Sea View Suites. Naturally, there are price variations but every room is designed and fitted out for the ultimate in magnificent décor and luxury. Each room for example has a fully stocked mini-bar and TV and wide balconies have wonderful views over sea and sand.
There are 2 large swimming pools for exercise or, if you prefer, simple relaxation. Both have panoramic views over Patong beach (hence the claim that it is a great place for people to watch). If swimming exercise is not enough, try the well equipped fitness centre, conveniently located a tiny limp away from the spa, where you might need a massage with to straighten out those tortured muscles.
Now you are physically fit and relaxed, time for a bit of cerebral stimulation in the reading corner just at the side of the lobby. Books and newspapers (just to remind yourself as to how the poor people live) are available from the lobby outlet.
No hotel is complete without a restaurant and ‘The Current of The Sea’ fulfils that requirement with all day dining. Sea food, international and, of course, Thai cuisine are all available. An American buffet breakfast gets you going while a la carte predominates for lunch and dinner. The atmosphere is family relaxed with, more often than not, live music.
The Surface Bar is tucked away on a balcony enclosed roof deck where the view, particularly of the sunsets, inspires the soul. Enjoy one of the wide selections of cocktails complimented by the light snacks and live music.
