By now you must have guessed that I’m pretty passionate about Thailand, must be something about the exotic sights, the smiley locals and luxurious hotels.
Speaking of luxurious hotels, Sri Panwa was one that will never leave my soul & body & mind. While I was only there for a short time, it had left an imprint and impression on me forever.
Let’s start with the actual location of this paradise, it’s tucked away from buzzing Phucket city life and tourists, it even has its own stunning private beach, in Laem Phan. It’s right on the edge of the island that’s how you get sights like these,
*gasp* I know. When I took this shot I had to stare down at my camera for a good minute or two because it looked like a dream.
When we got there, the sky was already melting into sunset, magic hour. The staff recommended to have drinks and dine on the rooftop, a place they call “Baba’s Nest”. And so – we did! After all, I saw so many photos of this mystical bar, that I had to check it out for myself.
If you ever find yourself in this part of Thailand I would highly recommend booking ahead, sunset is their busiest time, naturally.
I seriously couldn’t get over the view. I had a moment of reflection, gratefulness from the beauty surrounding me and how blessed I was to be there in that moment.
As night fell, they dimmed the lights to match the setting.
The next day we indulged in the hotel’s room lavish amenities. We got a place with an infinity pool overlooking the lush surroundings. As soon as we entered the room, there was a lovely citrus smell lulling us, and a soothing iPod playlist that’s so perfectly matched and curated for the sights around.
We also abused the included mini bar filled with cooling mint scented towels, a Nespresso machine, soft + boozy drinks. They even had a bowl of fresh fruit and info cards laid out on the mini table beside the patio.
We then made our way to a breakfast buffet fit for royalty, with complimentary champagne. Our hearts + glasses full and we wished the day would never end.
I took a dip after having a bite, and the water was just perfect. Seriously; it all felt like a dream! Everything we wanted and more was at our very fingertips with helpful staff and breathtaking views.
Even though we said goodbye, Sri Panwa will never leave my heart, and I will cherish the memories here forever & then some.
