A lovely guest review on TripAdvisor

Posted on 20 January 2010 by admin

A good sign of Phuket Tourism Situation to be back in 2010 is expected by Phuket Tourist Association referring to room occupancy rate which is almost 100% during this peak season.? Since number of tourists coming to Phuket dropped in 2009, the a slow recovery will be soon seen in 2010.

It was a busy week at La Flora Resort Patong, which is good. The Phuket Carnival at Patong, on 15 -21 December 2009 helps to spice up the festive tourist mood.? Visitors, both locals and tourists seems enjoy great varieties of booths. We have a lovely guest review on Tripadvisor.

“This is our last day at the La Flora Patong after 14 days of pure ultimate bliss. We have stayed in many 5 star resorts around the world, however the service levels provided by the management team and staff at the La Flora Patong were amongst the best that my husband and I have experienced in any of our previous worldwide holidays. Their attention to detail,friendly approach and helpfulness were of the highest standard and exceeded our expectations. Our room, its servicing and facilities provided were unquestionabley 5* all over.

THE ARRIVAL

Welcomed and greeted by reception and given lovely refreshments with Fresh Ice cold young coconuts which was well deserved after a 14 hour flight from london. We were then asked to pick our music for us to listen to. We had so much choice but I have to say if your going to try any you must try the Jazz cd it is awesome!
We were also treated to a scented oil for our room which the housekeeping scented our rooms with every evening to help us wind down.

ROOM

We upgraded to a pool acess room for out our honey moon, The room was beautifully decorated with Rose pettles sprinkled over the bed in a heart shape. With a complimentary fresh cream chocolate cake which put a big smile on my face. The room was amazing in most respects with a 5 spreaker dvd sound system and the room was very comfortable to spend time in. You get a choice of a bath, rain overhead shower or power shower. We loved the complimentary DVD collection great for those rainy afternoons. The outdoor area was really quite stunning with a daybed/ sunbeds / shade available.

FOOD

Breakfast at this place is simply sensational. If the green tea doesnt wake you up – the extensive choice of organic fruits and veg they blend into a shake of vitamin boosting goodies will certainly make you feel a million dollars. The service by the breakfast team was exceptional greeted so warmly every morning.

We ate all over Patong at all of the top restaurant’s and were impressed with the perfection of the dishes that the “Current of the Sea” resturant had to offer. Presentation was impeccable and standard of food impressive. My husband loves to eat and he fell in love with the Khao Pad which he ordered from room service almost every day!
They have a massive selection of great tasting wines. The only place in patong I could find Rose which was slightly pricey compared to london but exactly what I expected in quality :-)

OTHER WAYS TO INDULGE..

If you get bored sunbathing / eating sea food / floating along an infinity pool / you could always head to the La Flora spa. I was treated by my husand to a “Tranqulity Earth” Package. This was a head to toe ultimate pamper session for 3 and a half hours. I have no complaints about the price as when I stepped out of the Spa, I felt like I had landed on a cloud of orchids pettles and was in complete heaven. Believe me I was away with the fairys for days after the massage bought me into pure harmony. The setting of the spa was tranquil and the service was again unbeatable.

The surface bar on the rooftop overlooking the sea was breath-taking to say the least. We enjoyed a glass of cocktail while enjoying the the most amazing view of sunset I have ever seen. This was only possible due to its location right on the legendary beach of Patong . The shopping/bargaining places were right across the street while the red lights of Bangla road was just 5 minutes walk away must try the ping pong show it it the funniest thing you will ever see!

THE BEACH

Was lovley very busy and alot going on must have to let you know it is bang in the center of Gay Zone hence we only spent 2 days there. My husband and I rented a bike and went to Nai Harn beach most days only 15 minuites away. This beach was absolutely gorgeous, alot more quite and tranquil great place to compleatly chill out.

DECOR

It was spotless and beautiful in every sense of the word. Incredible for such a small beautiful resort with not a fault! Design was ultra modern, sleek and in line with the design of the resort – contemporary lobby and extraordinary infinity pool. Bang on the money for a 5 star resort if modern clean lines are your thing. The lighting was amazing great open spaces and very light airy design which is consistant all over the hotel.

SERVICE

We found our host Ryan to be fantastic. Ryan worked in the concierge and he and his team organised our 2 weeks so we had an unltimate expereience as this was our first time to Thailand.
Some of the things he organised for us:
Phi Phi Islands Tour, Quad biking, Fantasy Theamed Show, Rental Bike, Reccomened us to visit some of the best beaches, Elephant Trecking,Patong Nightclubs, Thai Boxing, Booked tables at some of the finest resturants and arranged our Spa Day. What I liked about him most is that he was upfront and honest about his recomendations. There wasn’t a question he could not answer for us or any request he couldn’t deliever!
The waiters in the restaurants worked very hard and all looked very happy in their jobs.We were treated like absolute royalty and cannot praise them enough. My face was literally aching from having smiley conversations. Seriously!

After Two weeks at the La Flora Patong we are sad to go, however excited about returning next year! We now will be traveling to another resort in Hui Hin for another week before we return to London.

And now due to La Flora have very high standards so lets see what happens….
Overall 100% Rating for the Hotel, Service, Location and Atmosphere.

Go Enjoy!”

  2. All I can say is that I fully agree with this review. I had also the great pleasure to stay at the La Flora Resort Patong and it will remain as one of the most memorable experience in my life not taking into account the birth of my children of course ;-)
