We flew Thai Airways from London Heathrow to Bangkok, then on to Phuket, arriving some fifteen hours after leaving London. We had pre-booked a car for transfer to our hotel and as we left the arrivals hall, the driver was waiting for us and twenty minutes later, we arrived at our hotel.

The Andaman White Beach Resort.

Immigration formalities were done at Bangkok on this occasion and this seemed to work much better than doing it at Phuket as has always been the way on our many previous trips.

Lynda and I are very much beach people…..but quiet beaches please. We selected this hotel for its quiet location, very good looking beach, decent accommodation and smallish size.

The blurb on the resort website claims that its beach is private, and yes I know, there is no such thing as a private beach in Thailand, but, the only land access to it is through the hotel grounds and with the beach being enclosed by cliffs at ether end, the only other way to it is from the sea. So it certainly felt like a private beach. Very, very quiet, beautiful fine powdery sand and crystal clear water.

We stayed in a Seaview Deluxe room with outdoor Jacuzzi. Very nice room with both indoor and outdoor shower. Sitting in the Jacuzzi with a glass of wine watching the sunset was just magical.

There is some decent snorkelling to be had at a beautiful little island, which is about a ten minute boat ride away. Easily organised through the hotel and cheap enough at 1000baht.

 

The resort has a decent selection of eating options offering good quality food.

 

We stayed here for three nights and will certainly consider visiting this hotel again.

Suitably unwound and relaxed, our next destination was Phi Phi……and there’s loads of news to come from there !
