The Hotel: Beyond Resort Patong
Taking inspiration from local marine life, the four-star Beyond Resort Patong awaits holidaymakers in the centre of town, merely metres away from the sandy beach. Shopping, entertainment and nightlife venues are at guests’ hand reach, while those who prefer to stay on site and chill can make the most of the resort’s facilities: rooftop pool overlooking the ocean, and spa. Active types can take a Thai boxing class or work up a sweat in the gym.
Enhanced by natural light and soothing colours, Premier Deluxe Room makes for a perfect relaxation base. Each one comes with tea- and coffee-making facilities, air conditioning, private bathroom, cable TVs, and a minibar. Blackout curtains block any outside lights when it is time to sleep. Market-style offered seafood is prepped as the diners like it at the Beyond Seafood restaurant, while the bar outlets keep thirsts under control.

The Area: Phuket, Thailand
A melting pot of religions, experiences and of course international tourists, Phuket combines everything that can be expected of a tropical island destination and puts it all into overdrive. Idyllic beaches and lush forests are juxtaposed against the hectic energy of Patong, often referred to as the party capital of not just Thailand but the whole of Asia. Just a short hop to the south of this lies the areas of Karon and Kata, famous for their pristine beaches and proximity to all the action of Patong without being in the thick of it.
Surin Beach is notable for its white sand, clear water, and village-like atmosphere. One of Phuket’s quieter tourist beaches, its high-end hilltop villas and luxury resorts have earned it the nickname ‘Millionaire’s Row’. Lounging on the beautiful beach is the main attraction for most visitors, but those who have had enough sun have a wealth of bars and restaurants to choose from, plus shopping options at Surin Plaza.
