My Beach Resort Phuket
It was a dream come true to have a 7-day break in this gorgeous resort by the beach! In so many ways, this resort impressed us and out-did our expectations. We enjoyed the simple touch of luxury coupled with the serenity of the environment. It’s located in the southern tip of Phuket, near Sri Panwa Hotel, the most famous resort in town. Here’s our take at this resort and if you do have plans to stay here, be prepared to be blown away!
My Beach Resort Phuket is situated by the quiet coast of a long stretch of private beaches. It’s on the south-eastern tip of Phuket, a prime area for luxury hotels and resorts. The 2km stretch of road by the beach before reaching the resort is adorned with beautiful and natural elephant ear plants. The roads leading to the resort are safe, convenient, and easy to navigate, even for first time drivers.
A short 10-15 minutes drive will bring you to Phuket Town, where it’s still bustling with local life even without tourists. There were a few nights where we ordered GrabFood, and the motorcyclists had no issues finding our location and delivering the food to the reception of the resort. We love the convenience and serenity, a hard combination to come by.
We stayed in the Premier Pool Acess room for 7 nights, that had a long pool right at the balcony that is shared with 5 other rooms. It was an amazing experience especially for the first 5 days where we were the only ones staying in that cluster of 6 rooms, hence we had the pool all to ourselves.
Before Covid, these rooms were going at almost 3,800 baht per night. This promotion was to attract local tourists during the Covid season, and we took that opportunity to experience this beautiful getaway spot.
With the 2,000 baht credit, we used it to buy smoothies and cocktails to enjoy while chilling on the sunbeds by the beach. With the remaining credits, we also spent it on the sunday lunch special, and had an amazing dining experience at their restaurant by the beach. Initially, we wanted to spend the credits on laundry services as well, but each piece of clothing was charged at 100 baht, which was way higher than we expected, so we decided to head out to the town area to get our clothes washed at the laundry shop. In the end, we spent 100 baht to wash a big load of laundry made up of clothes from two of us.
For food options, besides Grabfood, there are many restaurants and cafes in the town area that serve very good food at reasonable prices.
Besides the private pool only accessible from the rooms that we had, there was also an infinity pool right in front of the restaurant, facing the private beach. It’s a lovely pool that we enjoyed soaking in while enjoying the sunset. It’s also a good size to clock your laps to burn those holiday calories! Besides hotel guests, there are visitors who pay a fee to enjoy the pool and facilities as well. Quite a number of these visitors are locals who live in Phuket, and they just love the serenity of this pool. It’s a spot loved and well-known by locals.
Like what we shared earlier, the pool access was the highlight of the room. Every morning after waking up on the super comfy bed, we jump into our swimsuits and soaked our mornings away in the pool. On the balcony table we had our spread of DIY breakfast to save costs, yet we enjoyed it very much! The pool is very well maintained and the privacy of the pool helps in relaxation. It’s a beautiful feature that we still miss very much. The amazing thing is that the pool is never too cold or hot. We could enjoy a dip even late at night!
The room exudes fully a sense of luxury and meticulousness. The bed is very comfortable and we loved the fact that when I’m moving in bed, Sheryl doesn’t feel it at all. The weighted blankets adds the touch of thoughtfulness, creating a sense of added safety which aided in better sleep. We did screen-mirroring on the Smart TV to watch netflix at night, which was a breeze and we loved the adequate distance the TV was from the bed.
Also, the toilets were fitted with rain shower heads, which was a pleasant surprise. Our room was also situated very near to the beach, restaurant, and infinity pool, which we were very thankful for. When we draw our curtains on the right side, we will see a majestic sea view which turns into a romantic sunset picture in the evening.
There are also kayaks and paddleboards that can be used by hotel guests for free. There’s an in-house instructor that will give you basic guidance before you head out into the sea waters. I tried doing stand-up paddling and boy it was hard! It was an interesting first-time experience and the instructor was very patient and understanding in guiding me through the whole process.
Also, as we shared earlier, the Michelin-starred restaurant serves delicious food that we’ll recommend you to try using your hotel credits! On our last night, we ordered a passionfruit cocktail to share in our room and they sent it together with another complimentary drink. We were so impressed with their thoughtfulness, and their cocktails are really good.
The hotel also has a gym situated on the top floor, facing the sea. It has running and cycling machines, and a well-stocked free weights rack. There are also yoga mats and yoga balls for hotel guests to use.
As the saying goes, you get what you pay. The customer service at My Beach Phuket resort is top-notched and such an enjoyable experience. The counter staff are very helpful and considerate in giving advice on how to enjoy your stay in Phuket and at the resort. They are very respectful and very attentive to our needs as well. It’s indeed a part of the whole My Beach Resort experience, to have friendly staff smiling at you always, being of assistance when needed, and prompt in responses.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and also exploring this side of Phuket. We think this resort is a must-go, if you can afford it, especially when international borders are open again and the prices revert back to it’s original rates. One word of caution for travellers who need wheel-chair access, there are slopes to navigate up and down the resort, but they are quite steep. It’s the driveways that are being used by the buggy that help to ferry guests with luggages. Also, there is no elevators nor escalators here in the resort, so be prepared for a short work-out up the flights of stairs. It isn’t too much to handle, even for both of us who hardly workout.
