As one of the world’s best-loved tropical island, Phuket has something for everyone. From the grandiose and spectacle of super luxury resorts to the chic and unique atmosphere of a boutique property, every visit is hardly the same. A break away from the luxurious and over-the-top destinations, My Beach Resort is a new property loved for the privacy and top-of-the-class view of the sea it offers.
The Property & The Room
Tucked in the quiet corner of Cape Panwa on the east coast of Phuket, My Beach Resort is a stone’s throw away from the Andaman sea and a stunning panoramic view that stretches beyond the horizon — a perk for every single room aside of pool access and outdoor bath tub or private pool. The rooms span across five floors, and arranged in a ways that feels enclosed except for the panoramic sea view. Down at the bottom facing the beach is the swimming pool and My Café, the all day pool-side dining. There are 7 room types, with space ranging from 37 sqm of Deluxe room to 46 sqm of the Premier Seaview Studio that offers an invigorating sight of the Andaman Sea.
In-room facilities are top of the class and the sophisticated interiors have made it feel spacious despite the compact size. The bed is facing the balcony, and behind it is a long work desk where you can enjoy the view of the sea even when working.
My Café is the only main dining spot, but it’s more than enough to satisfy all your cravings. Breakfast line is fulfilling and if luck is on your side, you’ll get a taste of chef’s curious culinary experiment, which usually turns out pretty fantastic. During our stay, we got to taste her fusion egg benedict for which she substituted the Hollandaise sauce with her own mix of the spicy, Southern yellow curry sauce and mind you, it’s just delectable.
It’s too simplistic to call chef’s style “fusion.” Hers is more like a culinary experimentation of mixing traditional recipe with a touch of Southern taste. Yet, her flavor isn’t as intense as the usual Southern standard – those with Western palate should be able to take her take on Southern dishes just fine. Another dish we particularly love is the yellow curry with salmon – the fattiness of the meat just melts away the excess hotness of the curry, leaving a mild, rich flavor that is truly satisfying.
Relaxation is the key purpose of your visit to My Beach Resort – and the property is equipped with just everything you need to lie down and enjoy your leisure time with the benefit of a sublime scenery. The day is for lounging by the pool or relaxing in bed, but the “My Lounge” sky bar is your go-to place for a drinking spree. The 270 degree panoramic view of Chalong Bay makes every cocktail taste much more delightful.
However, if you don’t fancy being cooped up all day in the cozy room, there are a few attractions you can visit for a change of pace: Khao Yad View point and Phuket Aquarium, for example. We recommend taking a quick walk around Phuket Old Town and cafe-hopping. The café and bake shops here have their signature delicacies that would satisfy your sugar craving!
