Everything happens for a reason and in this case it was a day before Elaisha and I flew out to Phuket and we still had not booked a location to stay at. Nothing seemed to fit what we were looking for and Amari Watergate definitely set the standards making our options even harder. Thankfully Laura from Amari Watergate put us in contact with Amari Phuket and the rest was history haha.
Upon arriving we were greeted by the sweetest staff who gifted us with cold towels, tea and flower bracelets. The Vice President Pierre then came over to introduce himself and provided us with a complimentary dinner at La Gritta, (which you'll read more about below). After a quick check in process we were taken to see the rest of their hotel.
6212- Our home for the next 2 days.
We opted for the One Bedroom Suite Ocean View located at the highest part of their resort. To get too and from our room a driver needed to be called which was definitely a highlight of our trip. Included in our booking was access to their VIP Clubhouse, Breeze Spa, various on site restaurants and daily treats waiting for us in our room. The prosecco was a hugggge bonus.
You cannot go to Amari hotel without experiencing Breeze spa. Our host Sugar was the sweetest human being and made the experience that much better. Getting the opportunity to soak in a scented jacuzzi which nothing but silence and views was a moment I'll never forget.
If you stay at Amari and want to try the most delicious Italian food on the island, definitely go to La Gritta. We were wined and dined by the most talented chef who came over numerous times to check on us. Everything tasted amazing and the drink menu.... lets just say I was obsessed with their drink called, which I now can't find anywhere in Canada!
