Our last evening in Phuket, we went to a boutique hotel called Sala for dinner. We met an expat British family* on Friday night, who highly recommended the place. So we went. And wow. Glad we did.
We had been staying at a larger, well known resort with standard food and standard rooms. But this place was quite different – unique, modern design. The restaurant was right on the beach, so we had cool breezes blowing as we ate. The food was outstanding, perhaps the best of the trip. Gioia even got to see a kitty cat, so everyone had a nice evening.
If we ever come back to Phuket, we will probably book one of this place’s 79 villas. It was really, really nice.
*As a side note, this couple had just sold their businesses in London and moved to Phuket six weeks ago with their kids. The little boy (who was about four) asked me: Are you English? I said no, I am from the United States. He looked at me strangely and then said: But if you aren’t English, then why is your skin white? Chuckle.
