It’s currently winter in Canada and all I can think about is my Thailand trip. Reminiscing about the beautiful country of Thailand makes me miss it so much and I am yearning to go back soon!
One of the highlights of my Thailand trip was exploring Phuket and staying at The Vijitt Resort. This resort is located in the beautiful and quiet area of Rawai in Phuket. It is a 45minute drive from Patong beach and the international airport of Phuket is 45 kilometres north of the resort. This is a relatively quiet area of Phuket, which makes for very peaceful and relaxing stay.
My first impression was that the hotel grounds were well kept and full of tall palm trees. The landscaping is amazing and each villa is picture perfect. The resort is quite big and the staff offers golf carts that take you from your villa to anywhere in the resort. It really is a convenient and quick way to get around!
Every villa is secluded and is like a private oasis. Many of the villas include their own pool and have amazing views of the calm blue waters of Chalong Bay. The interior of the villas are filled with wood accents and lots of white. I stayed in the pool villa. It is a one bedroom villa with an outdoor rainfall shower and private pool. Thank you to the kindly staff who greeted me with a bowl of tropical fruits upon my arrival! Furthermore, I loved the lovely floating breakfast that was brought to my villa. I have always wanted to do this and I finally go the chance! It is a very yummy spread and such a fun way to eat breakfast.
The main infinity pool at Vijitt is absolutely stunning and is one of the highlights of the resort. It is huge and offers amazing sunrise views! Guests can relax on many of the sun beds by the pool. They also offer amazing fresh and fruity drinks at affordable prices. Please do note that the beach on the property is shallow and not meant for swimming.
Don’t forget to visit the 2 restaurants in the hotel. The Thai restaurant offers authentic Thai food with lovely ambiance.
Because Vijitt is located in a more quiet part of Phuket, the resort offers a free daily shuttle service. You can arrange a shuttle to go to the nearest beaches and old Phuket. It is such a fun and easy way to explore the island.. not to mention, it’s free!! My favourite part was exploring old Phuket. There are a lot of cool cafes and interesting architecture.
When you reserve a stay at Vijitt, they offer complimentary breakfast buffet. I have to say, I was super excited for breakfast every single morning. They have a large variety of western and Asian breakfast food. There are plenty of fresh fruits, fresh omelette station, and Thai style dishes. My favourites had to be the fresh tropical fruits and the yummy Thai desserts! The food changes daily so you will never get bored.
I have to give a shout out to all the friendly staff at Vijitt! I have never met such friendly and polite people. They are willing to help you with anything and provide amazing service. They are super attentive and I love the turn down service. Every night they prepare the room and leave a beautiful message along with a fresh flower.
Thank you for hosting me at The Vijitt Resort Phuket! It is truly like paradise and is the perfect place to wind down. I will definitely be back one day!
