Sadly, journeys to and from Phuket International Airport are getting more stressful and tiring as traffic, road works and general road chaos take their toll on the nerves and tempers of travelers.
Fortunately, there is also an antidote to all this stress and congestion in the gorgeous form of the Phuket Marriott Resort and Spa on tranquil Nai Yang Beach, located just a few minutes’ drive south of the airport.
The Resort is easy to find and once there you will feel a million miles away from the hassles and frayed nerves of Phuket’s roads and airport, so you can kick back and relax, while having some fabulous cuisine and drinks overlooking the charming grounds within the resort and stunning Nai Yang Beach.
A terrific strategy to combat those airport hassles, and even make the journey to catch your plane a real treat, is to drop into one of the Marriott Nai Yang’s dining venues and have a meal before you fly.
Relax at the stylish Big Fish Restaurant and Bar overlooking the beach and enjoy some of Phuket’s freshest seafood, as well as Thai and international
favorites, complemented by a fine selection of reasonably priced cocktails, beers and wines by the bottle or glass. The indoor/outdoor seating is ideal for a truly relaxing meal, overlooking the lovely vistas of Nai Yang Beach and the sunset.
Then there’s The Lounge in the sumptuous upper level of the resort where a special promotion will get you a burger and all the trimmings from four
delicious burger recipes, plus a bottle of local beer for just THB 390 ++. Or from February 10th onward, a choice from two sausage recipes plus all the trimmings and a bottle of local beer for just 420++ Or why not book a quiet, comfortable room for the night, so that you can roll up at the airport the next morning feeling relaxed and ready to catch your flight.
Better yet, do as I do, and book a room, plus a session at the Resort’s Quan Spa for a relaxing massage, or beauty treatment, and round it all off with the Burger and Beer promotion in The Lounge overlooking the beach for supper.
That way, you arrive at the airport the next day feeling so good that you’ll be able to fly without the need of an aircraft!
