Absolute Twin Sands Resort & Spa, Phuket,

Hi there Joe and Marie, I know you asked for a postcard from Phuket, but I���m sending you a letter as I have just too much to say! This place we’re staying at is absolutely amazing. It’s called Absolute Twin Sands, and is just south of Patong. We checked in today, and are looking out from our balcony down to the beach, the shore is lined with tropical pine trees and the water simply defines the colour of turquoise. I can hear you asking, “What’s with the name?” Well, the hotel is built between two beaches, Tri Trang and Merlin Beach. We took a stroll today to Tri Trang and had a little sunbathe and a paddle, enjoyed a meal at a local restaurant, then walked up over the rise to the other beach. Merlin Beach was just as beautiful, and we arrived back at our suite just in time to catch sunset over the western arm of Patong Bay. The funny thing is that it was just as outstanding sound-wise as it was visually with an exotic mix of wind chimes and cicadas. As Marie would say, ���Dreamy.”


Anyway, just before dinner we ran into a really friendly English family by the swimming pool. We invited them to dinner at the onsite Blue Mango restaurant (recently named #1 on TripAdvisor too!), but they explained that they were shared ownership owners and staying in their fully equipped two-bedroom suite (all of the rooms have a kitchenette) which sounded real neat to us but off we went to dinner anyway and it was just fabulous. Claudio, the Executive Chef, explained that the food is ‘Anglo-Med’ and he was spot on: I mean little Josh had genuine, and I mean genuine, fish and chips while we nibbled on anchovies on home-baked bread with olive oil-drenched salad then lasagne and spag carbonara. Wicked stuff, and the wine was really reasonably priced, too. They also have a five-star Thai chef, and we�����re planning on sampling green curry and massaman curry tomorrow tonight, perhaps with a bottle of white. Not for Josh, mind.

We’re in a huge one-bedroom suite (Josh has a roll-in bed) with vivid modern art on the walls and a blackand- white theme running through it. All the mod cons are here including a 40” flat-screen TV with a sound bar instead of speakers, a rain shower in the bathroom, and a comfortable balcony with tables and chairs above the three-part swimming pool. I say “three-part��� as there�����s a 25-metre lap pool, a kids’ play area, and an infinity Jacuzzi pool. Josh and I splashed around for hours and hours until bedtime. Most other hotels wouldn’t let us do that, but here you can. Afterwards, he wanted to lift weights and go on a running machine in the 24-hour fitness room, but I could see he was fading fast so I took him upstairs for a DVD and a bedtime story.


What’s remarkable about Absolute Twin Sands is that the morning views are just as exotic as the sunset vistas so we enjoyed a nice cup of tea on the balcony before venturing down for breakfast. The English family checked out today, but not before showing us around their twobedroom suite. It was more or less in the same design and décor as ours but even larger and OMG, the size of the balcony… it was just huge!

Anyway, breakfast was simply perfect: we sat on the all-day dining Blue Mango terrace instead of in the air-conditioned interior, and I enjoyed a full-on English serving while Joni tackled a mixed fruit platter with yoghurt and raspberry jus. She excused herself and went for a foot massage at the ‘iSpa���, telling me later that there’s free access for guests to the sauna and steam room at the spa. She’s also hinting that the double treatment room with Jacuzzi is beckoning, so who knows?


Josh then had a go on the free 24-hour internet in the smart and air-conditioned lobby while we decided on what to do today, finally choosing a shopping spree. It’s good to know that there’s a free shuttle bus running to Patong day and night, passing by Jungceylon shopping mall and of course the infamous Soi Bangla with its intoxicating nightlife. It’s great to be in a quiet area, but it’s also good to be connected; oh, speaking of which, there�������������s free Wi-Fi throughout the resort.

The verdict? You can tell by now that I’m all fuelled up about it, otherwise you’d have just had the aforementioned postcard, but I wanted to let you know that the project is on-going and this is only phase one: phase two and three will offer even more, with extra pools and villas. Come and check it out; I promise you, it’s like nothing else we’ve ever seen before, and you can stay as a guest, own an outright apartment or even share the cost of a whole apartment with other owners like the English family, I did ask them what they had to pay for an entire suite to themselves and they said 2.5 million Baht which is only just over AUD$80K – can it really be so cheap? They said they can even rent out or pass on as an investment to their kids, and they get to use an amazing motor yacht and get complimentary golf equipment thrown in!

Anyway, we really are living the dream here, and are meeting one of the Absolute Fractional sales guys in the morning to learn more. If this works out we can’t wait to have you join us next time.

Wish you were here… Clive, Joni, and Josh xx
