We arrived in Phuket Friday 6th April after two hectic days in Bangkok. It was a brief one hour flight from Bangkok airport to Phuket.

Our resort, Club Med, sent a van to collect us from the airport and we drove for over an hour down Phuket island to Kata Beach. Phuket was a bit of an eye opener for us after the relative civilisation of Bangkok, but we loved it. We particularly loved the view of the Big Buddha, sitting on top of a hill overlooking the island.

We spent the rest of the day looking around Club Med resort, which was huge, and enjoying the stunning Kata Beach. After dinner we walked along the beach to the Ska Bar and enjoyed reggae music and fire twirling.

Club Med was fantastic, all the negative reports I had read were totally wrong. The rooms were basic but clean and had everything you could require. The food and drinks (even cocktails were all inclusive) were just superb. Not just vast quantities but excellent quality as well.
