Set in a land where the sea sparkles and the landscape is
greener than a jealous relative, The Citin Plaza in Patong is a dream
destination for escaped concrete-jungle prisoners. Just shy of the heart of
Patong, the hotel is peaceful and serene with elegantly designed rooms complete
with balconies, contemporary furniture and organic wall decorations. A cocoon
of tranquillity and Thai hospitality, your temporary abode also boasts all the
essentials of a standard abode with a range of pleasurable services to make
your stay more than just memorable.
Though the hotel boasts a rooftop with sundeck, swimming pools, massage facilities and restaurants that cater to all palates, you’ll probably be far too taken with the Patong pleasantries to stay indoors. Far better than a vacation to Aunty Gertrude’s house in the bundus, Thailand stakes claim to a land drenched in culture and history. Five minutes from the night market and Karon Beach, even if you’re not looking to go very far, there’ll be tons of activities to keep you entertained. Visit the quaint Old Phuket Town with camera in hand, take a stroll on the beach, or for the more adventurous types, feast your eyes on a Thai Boxing match. After days spent lapping up Thai culture, you’ll always feel even better knowing that the next morning brings a delicious breakfast and more exotic cultural experiences.Getaway Fact: A puppy on the deck of a burning ship was reportedly the saviour of at least 13 people. The trip was Jock’s first trip away from home and he saved the passengers from an explosive hot tub after the deck of the ship had already caught fire. The captain still holds a photo of him in his quarters.
