It's not everyday you wake up and have the beach all to yourselves, unless you are in, maybe Phuket. This little Thai island is just paradise! I wish I could have stayed forever. I guess in a way I now understand why people stay on and live in Thailand. You could certainly live there and not miss any "Western comforts". You want shopping, Bangkok is filled with shopping malls and from designer boutiques to purse-friendly stores. When it comes to the weather, less just say the London summers are blown right out of the water!
After doing the James Bond Tour and the Ko Phi Phi Tour, we wanted a little break from any activites and just lounge about like the world had stopped spinning for a while. Mai Khao beach where Renaissance is located is simply Paradise. Even better in the morning for sunrise, as the beach is all yours to enjoy on your own with a loved one by your side. What makes Mai Khao Beach is its 11km-long straight beach, much of which is still undeveloped apart from JW Marriott Phuket Resort, the airport which sits at the top of the northwestern coast. This means that you can walk for miles and miles and not see a soul other than maybe one or two joggers from the resort.
I shared a couple more picture of our private villa at Renaissance. If even you take a short break from the activities on the island I would highly recommend a bit of rest and relaxation at Renaissance, if for this beautiful stretch of the beach alone!...
