If you stay at Holiday Inn resorts, you are likely to see these themes repeated.
– Stay Romantic – bathtub, sunsets
– Stay Delectable – food bbq, buffet 🙂
– Stay Relaxed – yoga, swim, Spa
– Stay Connected – free Wifi connection (kids would associated Stay Connected with their PS3!)
– Stay Relaxed –
Where should we start? There are so many water places all around us, all FUN!
The lap pools, swimming pools, the Andaman Sea and even our bathtub!
Video : Beach and pool activities (planes spotting too)
Beach play after our breakfast. As the tides roll in, the waves grew stronger. Even swimmers must be careful. When the waves roll back, younger kids can be sucked in!
It is definitely safer (but no less Fun) to swim at Holiday Inn Phuket Mai Khao’s infinity pool. Besides water polo and other “scheduled” water activities, kids can choose some unofficial curriculum, such as throwing and picking-up of pebbles underwater.
Family bonding with kids, it was pretty unique to be perspiring on the beach. Close our eyes, hear the waves lapping on the beach.
– Stay Romantic and chill
Pickup a book, laze on the beach, watch the Sunset (Day 2 post).
We saw a beach party under the evening sky and swaying trees, accompanied by live band and sea breeze.
The constant drift of BBQ meat was inviting.
Perhaps your definition of Romantic is couple time massage or spa?
Introducing the famous Tea Tree Spa. Rustic building, high ceiling and cooling interior. A cup of ice tea, and we are immediately shielded from the hot sun.
Inside the inner sanctuary, Mummy and Daddy chose the “Back, Head and Shoulder” massage (30min) and Feet massage (30min). The next hour was pure bliss as our masseuse soothes our stress away
– Stay Delectable –
Yummy traditional and authentic Thai Food from Kin Dee, rated No3 in Mai Khao.
For the ultimate experience, the whole family can enroll in a cooking class and whip up some Green Curry, Tom Yam Gong and pineapple salad.
– Stay FUN –
Over our 4D3N stay, there was always some activities to engage us.
Plane spotting real close, as you can feel the planes roar overhead. Do note that the best time to catch inbound planes (flying in from the sea) will be between 7am to 9am. I suspect afternoons will be outbound flights.
You will notice that Mai Khao beach does not have any sea motor sports like jetski or parasailing. We overheard from staff that it was intentional to keep the beach untarnished.
So, what will we miss about Holiday Inn Phuket Mai Khao?
Boon Xin will miss her Princess treatment and friends at Kid’s Club. We felt very safe whenever Boon Xin is in the hands of caretakers at Kid’s club.
Thank you Holiday Inn Phuket Mai Khao for your kind hospitality. Everyone was so friendly to us, and guests were warmly greeted at every corner.
Praew (Marketing) is friendly and accommodating, Maroo (activities manager) is always really to engaged the kids in sports, friendly Ploy (front desk) can speak Mandarin and always smiling while Jack (Pesto) is always attentive and ensures his guests enjoy Pesto’s services.
With your smiles and personalities, you made our holiday much more memorable. Even our kids are impressed, they were happily saying “Sa-wat-dee” with palms clasped whenever someone greeted them 🙂
Everyone needs a relaxing vacation to rejuvenate.
We would not hesitate to recommend Holiday Inn Mai Khao to our friends.
