Escape to another side of Patong!

04As you are probably aware, Patong is famous as being a crowded nightlife hub full of fun activities going on from dusk till dawn. But did you know about the other side of this entertainment center, the quiet day-time Patong?

If you’re staying in Patong you certainly want to get away from its bustling center and escape to get your body recharged in a private swimming pool and a get treated in a spa room before the sun goes down. And who said that Patong doesn’t have such a peaceful side to get away to?

The serendipity private pool villas at Grand Mercure Phuket Patong Resort & Villas are the perfect choice for those holiday-makers who seek a genuine place where your vacation in Patong can be spent to the fullest both day and night. 
06And their one bedroom pool villa became the perfect choice for me during a recent long weekend escape.

I was extremely impressed by the thoughtful design that had gone into these pool villas from my very first step inside. The design is not overly flashy and gave me a sense of being at home. The living room spaces are well organized and utilized to feel comfortable and convenient. My bedroom was divided well from the living room, and a personalized welcome note was placed neatly on the creaseless bedsheet, with a nice additional touch of a cute folded towel elephant and beautiful orchid.

62However, one of the main highlights of these villas is the spacious bathroom combining the toilet, shower room, central bathtub, dual washbasins and closet. Watch out though, you can easily lose track of time in here without realising it.

It was raining slightly during my stay, but that didn’t deter me from exploring the villa’s surrounding tropical garden.
After catching up with my e-mails, my back was crying out for some attention so I decided to search for a nearby spa. Surprisingly, and to my great astonishment, I found there was one conveniently located right next to my villa, “Ryn Spa”, 
61
an award-winning spa within the hotel which recently won the World Luxury Spa Award in the category of “Luxury Emerging Spa in Asia”. It wasn’t too hard for me to make my choice, so I headed immediately to Ryn Spa.

I was welcomed by the spa specialist who didn’t only provide me with great hospitality, but was honest and straightforward in advising me what treatment would be of most advantage to my needs.

My recommended treatment was the “Free as a Bird” massage which would see me revived using one of Ryn Spa’s core products, “Tropical Mae Ping” which is a well thought out concoction of premium ingredients; lemongrass, geranium, 
63
kaffir lime, grapefruit and sandalwood, and most importantly, the product was paraben free.

This product, paired with the special massage technique, were a perfect combination leaving me with a truly blissful mind and body. The treatment cured the roots of my back pain entirely.

My talented spa therapist really made my spirit fly freely with her massage techniques which concentrated on exactly the right spots on my back. This treatment allowed my mind to fully escape from its everyday overdrive and took me to a comfort zone I had never known existed.

Grand Mercure Phuket Patong Resort & Villas was certainly the right choice for my long weekend escape in Patong. It’s located in a prime area with the famous Bangla Road, where you can enjoy a range of nightlife; Junceylon, the biggest international shopping & leisure center in Patong; Bansan night market, where you can open your experiences of local food, and many other attractions just a few minutes away. I’m fully recharged now, Patong nightlife here I come!
