... some Monks were praying so watched that for a bit before being blessed by a monk. The evening was my final day in Phuket so went to a very local restaurant and had a few beers with another spicy Thai dish!! I am very happy I came to see my uncle and Kanoon and I will see them in England shortly! Tomorrow I land in Phuket to meet Jacqui, Ciara, Nicole, Ben and loads of new people I will do Thaintro with! Can't ...
... until about five minutes before we docked. It looked a load of rubbish anyway, very violent, not at all suitable for children. We caught a taxi almost immediately to our hotel in Naiyang, which we had booked for one night as a 'stop over' en route to Bangkok, and subsequently Sydney and Aukland. We encountered many traffic jams between the harbour and our Hotel, not unlike those in Bangkok. It was not until we got into this traffic that ...
I'm going to be short and sweet on today's post as it's largely been one thing, and not too much to dive into. We left our hostel and walked to the local bus stop to catch a bus to Patong beach. Patong beach is beautiful and has almost white like sand. It was extremely busy with all the tourists, but I enjoyed a good swim in the sea and relaxed in the sun. Having a swim in the sea is one of the best things in the world. I feel totally at ...
... where The Beach was filmed they keep saying this like its a good thing but as the average age of people on board probably weren't old enough to see the movie and it wasn't that good to be a cult one I think it's time to think of another analogy. OMG though! So many boats not much sand but it's a slice of heaven and you can sit in the shade of rocky over hangs its a bit like photos of the riviera with boats lined up giving tiny pockets for people to swim in amazing water or lie on the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ayara Hilltops Resort and Spa Thalang
I have stayed at many of the top luxury resorts around the world and this one ranks with the best of them.
Best holiday ever!
My husband chose this venue for our 14 day honeymoon in January 2006. I don't think that it is possible for him to have chosen a more romantic, beautiful and peaceful venue anywhere in Phuket. The hotel staff and service is truly 5 star, the food absolutely great and the location superb.
It is a short comfortable walk to the beach and restaurants and the buz of Patong Beach is close enough to enjoy but far enough to ensure that Treetops is quiet and private.
Our room was fantastic with Jacuzzi, beautiful bathroom and great views of the sea and the gardens on the premises. The facilities in the room are impressive with extras, like a dvd player thrown in!
We can only thank everyone at Treetops for making our honeymoon the best holiday ever.
My girlfriend & I stayed at Tree Tops just a couple of days ago (Jan 06). It is indeed a beautiful place,.. we were supposed to stay for 2 nights, but extended a night so that we could enjoy it more.
Great for Hill Walkers
Arrived at the Japanese style hotel. Main pool in the reception area with very little privacy.View of Surin Beach if you stand on your toes. The private pool rooms are a very large bath not a pool.
the suite is divided so the bedroom and the living rooms are totally seperate.
Moved out on arrival and headed back to the Banyan Tree.
Wonderful and Quiet
I have to agree with most other reviewers - Treetops is a quiet boutique resort located just a few minutes of walking distance from the Surin Beach.
If you are looking for a quiet and romantic getaway, Treetops is the place for you.
The hotel is pretty well managed - they change your bed and clean the rooms twice a day. The service is also spectacular - when we arrived, they told us that our room had not been ready (around 5pm in the afternoon) because a guest who was staying there requested a late check-out; the hotel manager and staff gave us a free complimentary meal at the nice hotel restaurant.
Additionally, the view of the hotel was awesome, especially sitting your personal jacuzzi overlooking the beach and the hill.
We stayed there from 31 October to 3 November and what can I say ... the best experience we had so far. Treetops was beautifully built on the hill, with 3 types of suites, Benjamart, Jamjuree, and Rachavadee. We were actually reserving for Benjamart, but they upgraded our room to Jamjuree. For USD 292 for 2 nights, the upgrade was really a very very generous gift to us. In addition to that, we initially stayed there for 2 nights, but we really fell in love with Treetops that we extend one more night and they let us stay in our Jamjuree suite with reasonably USD 200.
I stayed there with my girlfriend just 1 week ago and we both loved the place.
It's now almost 2 months ago since I was there and I still miss it! This is certainly one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at, although I have stayed in many much more expensive places all over the world!
We had the absolute pleasure of staying at the treetops arasia in May . We contacted the hotel directly and were offered an ubelievably good rate as they were trying to recover from the drop of tourism due to the Tsunami . The hotel is up on the hill at Surin beach and was totally unaffected .
