This resort is a hidden jewel of Phuket, and no surprises with it being part of SLH (Small Luxury Hotels of the World) as well as winning 4 awards in 2011 by Asia Pacific Hotels Award as ‘Best Sustainable Hotel in Thailand’, ‘Best Small Hotel in Thailand’, ‘Best Sustainable Hotel Asia Pacific’, and ‘Best Small Hotel Asia Pacific’.
If that isn’t enough accolades, Frog and I were in 7th heaven – a slice of paradise! The service was friendly and excellent, the food was superb, the facilities top-notch and our Ocean View Loft room was just perfect – and the best part you wouldn’t believe is that it’s great value for money.
Located on the pristine, secluded beach of NaTai beach, 20 minutes north from Phuket airport. We didn’t move from here. So content we were to chillax by the beach, by our pool with free WIFI everywhere, we soon forgot the mundane world.
Aleenta Resort also offers Thai cooking classes, free yoga, taichi and detox programmes too and a great looking spa by the beach. It was our perfect relaxing weekend getaway, a great discovery to fall in love again with Phuket -Phang Nga Bay. For great excursions, we recommend the day boat trip to Phang Nga Bay (remember The Beach) and James Bond island (remember The Man with the Golden Gun).
This resort will definitely see Frog and I making a return trip in the near future! Bliss.
