As I told you in the last post, yeah, we stayed like 3 nights of our trip this time at ALOHA VILLA Hotel, Patong Phuket.. And it's a quite nice hotel..
1st, let me tell you, we are very independence on this tour.. We didn't even book our hotel online.. We are just gambling ourselves there.. And yeah, Diana Teo had give me her itinerary for Phuket, but we found out, the hotel she suggest were actually a bridal house, and it will only open if you book their room like a month before.. So, there's no way we can just be walk in guest there.. Ha ha ha..
So, the minibus which we took from airport stop halfway, at their office.. the Tour Agent office.. So, she ( the officer ) find us another affordable hotel.. so, here is ALOHA VILLA Hotel..
I don't really know the full price for a night in this hotel because we took the Phi Phi Island tour trip directly from the Tour Agent.. And the full price along with our Taxi Transfer to Airport on our last day was 3475 baht per person.. And there are 4 of us..
So, let's count together with me..
Phi Phi Island Trip tour - 1800 baht/person
Taxi Transfer - 175 baht/person (the taxi need to pick us up at 5.30 am so there's extra)
So, that left us like about............ 1500 baht.. so 1500/3 nights = 500 baht/night per person..
Since 1 room is for 2 person - that's mean it's 1000 baht per night.. and yeah, it's equal to RM100 per night..
Okay, now we know the budget, so I'll let you decide whether the price is worth paying or not.. ^_^.v..
Okay, this was the first thing I capture when I get into the room.. Yeah, I know my english is terrible, but so do Aloha Villa.. ha ha ha.. ^_^.v.. Yeah, I found my lost twin here.. :D..
Then, we were welcomed by a cute and sexy hotel room service..
Hm, okay, I bet you want to see the close up picture of him.. here it is..
Okay, forget it.. it was me playing with the bed's decoration.. I know it's disturbing.. And yeah, I'm wearing a cute and sexy boxer down there, as you thought so.. :p..
So, skip that, let we see what was outside view of our room.. from the balcony..
Hm, that tall building was a hotel, and that's my landmark upon researching this hotel back, since I'm the group 'google map'.. And I need to know where the hell were we when we lost.. Ha ha ha.. Forget the map, we didn't even take it out from the bag.. :D..
So, the 401 stay at 2 room which is....
Yeah, Ekung and Liau at 221 room, while Aki and Amb at 223.. Err, need to mention, this room was just side by side.. They separate the odd and even number.. So 1 side is for the odd numbers room, 1 side for the even numbers room..
The receptionist area plus the lobby area was catchy too.. Trust me, it's beautiful.. A free air area.. I mean, not an air conditioned area.. :p
Need to told, the staff was very very very very very very supporting and helpful on our stay there.. 2 of the receptionist girl even remember my room number.. When both of them see me (since I always offer myself to take and keep the key at the counter) they will always know which key to take.. If only I invite them to our room, it's gonna be....yuhuuuu... ok, just kidding.. >_<
And for the hotel guest, they have the..............
POOL, ready for us from 7am to 10pm.. It's a small pool (for me) but it's refreshing when you're tired from the whole day trip.. So, yeah, that's a plus for us..
so, the OVERALL ANALYSIS :
Very Strategic - 2 min 04 sec to Bangla Road, 7 min 24 sec to Patong Beach, 4 min 12 sec to Jungceylon and they got like 3 of 7-Eleven store nearby..
Friendly and Helpful Staff - No need to explain more, they just deserve it.. Very Good customer service.. (plus the two receptionist I mention earlier was damn cute.. :p)
Good Facilities - a clean and comfort waiting area, warm pool, passenger's lift and cafe..
They provide WIFI but not free.. you need to pay 300 baht for 24 hours.. It has a good speed.. but no worry, FREE WIFI was available at PATONG!! Just, it didn't reach our room since the hotel wifi block it.. :p..
Located at Patong, if you don't care about wifi (but I think most of you will care) Aloha Villa was sure a nice stay.. :).. You can visit their website at :
Okay, let's wait for the next topic..... FOOD!! See you in the next post.. ^_^.v..
Aki : Oh my, I'm still dreaming the receptionist girl.. deng..
