2014 Phuket villa with private pool trip

And here we are at Villa Namaste, a seven bedroom villa with its own private pool!

As per our Bali trip, we drew lots to decide which couple takes what room.

After settling into our rooms, we explored the vast premise!

Without wasting anymore time, we jumped into the pool! Brought in the chips bowl as we did in Bali!

Over the entire trip, we spent so much time in the pool.

Update 7th July 2019: it was just us back then with no children of our own. Now all our trips include the little ones : D

It was reliving living with each other over extended periods of time just like when we were back in school, except we had a little more money for this wonderful trip instead of staying over at a friend’s parents’ house keke.

Winding down for the night

Yoga the next morning

villa namaste review

I kind of regret it, yet not regret it, for not joining them for yoga but waking up early would mess the rest of the day for reals.

One side of the rooftop overlooks the town and the forest wraps the rest of the rooftop perimeter.

Exploring the town

The guys were pretty contented playing board games (which I don’t really like keke) indoors or dipping in the pool. But I would very much like to explore the area around our villa. So off le gf and I go!

Bocconcino Phuket

We walked past an entirely surprising outfit. An Italian delicatessen in Phuket!

Surin Beach

It was a long walk but we made it to Surin Beach!

Saw a royal pavilion of sorts. Got to be extremely respectful.

Ahhh…. Always love the sun, the sand and the sea! Unfortunately, the sand on Surin Beach isn’t fine. The beach with the finest sand, like baby powder fine, is the beach I visited at Ko Samet during my grad trip to Thailand in 2009.

Making my way out to dip my feet in the sea. But le gf is having none of it LOL. Not everyone likes sandy feet, let alone sandy, salty and sticky feet. Anyway, glaring sun made everything else look dark.

On the way back, we saw a dog belonging to one of the households at the bottom of the hill where our villa is situated. I’m gonna assign whoa whoa a nationality. It is Thai. Like the American pigeon I saw in America. Or the pelican that is Austrian. Or the Bruneian soldier ant.

Patong Beach

It is the third and final night of our holiday and I wanted to go out to Patong Beach. Didn’t want to miss whatever that I might miss, though common sense would suggest that Patong Beach will be extremely commercialised and that there just isn’t any point going there. Nevertheless we called in a mini bus to take us there.

We really did walk aimlessly on the beach. Don’t know about the rest but I love it! I mean le gf and I have explored quite a bit on foot the last two days and I still can’t quite enough of venturing out to see the sun, beach and sea!
