We were looking forward to our holiday in Phuket. It is about an one-and-a-half hour flight from Singapore. Arriving at Phuket airport was fun but overwhelming, once you have cleared customs, there are numerous Thai people who waiting to harrass you!
Our mini-van to took us (what seemed like the long way) to our hotel at Kata Beach. We stayed at the Sawasdee Village it was beautiful.
We upgraded to the Baray Villa. The villas are designed with the perfect combination of Arabian and Thai style by concentrating on the transparency of ventilation in room. The spacious area around 150 sqm with unique spectacular design of private pools where an in-villa jet pool connects to the villa private pool set amidst tranquil garden and extension to the main pool.
I'll let the pictures tell the story.

Kata Beach is about five minutes drive from the hotel. There are beach chairs for use, but be aware that they are for hire. We sat down, and was approached by some guy who advised us they were for hire. There are people who walk up and down the beach selling their wares.

Another exciting part of Phuket is the nightlife. In Patong, there is a stretch called Bangla Road which houses all the nightclubs and bars.
