Me and 3 girl friends stayed in the Premium Pearl Bed Suite for 3 nights which we thought the suite is excellent for us. Bed and shower are hugh, room is clean and staff are all very nice and professional. It takes you only 10mins from the airport but around 40mins to Patong or Phuket city. You can still call...

The Black Ginger restaurant is charming and not as expensive as we thought it would be. It's has a choice of set menus or A La Carte ....
