After bouncing around from one resort to the next with only goals of soaking in Phuket’s love inducing sunshine and delicious fare, we were excited to stop for a few days at Royal Phuket Marina and feel a little more at home. I’m pretty sure one of the definitions of luxury living is residing in a gigantic villa, complete with swimming pool and a yacht docked on your front step. I couldn’t believe it was as easy as taking a few steps away from our room to climb aboard a Sunseeker and island hop with locals. We had been so busy we forgot all the calm beauty Phuket has to offer. The boy and I lounged on perfect blue sky filled days, explored the yummy offerings and shopping destinations on the boardwalk, and slept a contented dreamfilled slumber each evening. The serene setting and beautiful marina view was almost enough for us to enquire about a long term rental and relocate to the far more leisurely lifestyle of Phuket. Maybe one day.
Daily yacht charters are available at Royal Phuket Marina.
