My Stay at Sala Phuket - Thailand

I've been to the one in Samui and it was about time I stayed at the Sala Phuket.  This five star boutique resort is set in Mai Khao Beach, 30 minutes from the airport and 45-50 minutes away from Patong beach.  Its located near JW Marriot and Anatara Resort, a nice and quite area.  We booked for the Sala Pool Villa. Their spa is a must, not only is it gorgeous but their treatments are really good.  Go for the heat compress massage and the Thai facial.

Izakaya Restaurant Opens Today

The newest Japanese restaurant, Izakaya, another one many of the food ventures by Chef Ahmad Al-Bader, opens today in Arjan Al-Bidaa, located on top of Costa.  I'm a fan of anything by the chef, whether its Burger Hub, Pizzetta, Me'armisha ShawarmaEighty 6 Bistro (2nd post 86 Bistro),  and Prime & Toast, so I'm pretty sure the food will not disappoint.

The 45 guest rooms will all have views of Hyde Park, and  the Penthouse Suite will have sweeping views of London from a wraparound terrace.  45 Park Lane has a team of massage therapists that can perform a variety of treatments all of which can be enjoyed within the privacy of your room.  Otherwise, just a few steps away from the hotel, you can enjoy the luxeries of a spa in The Dorchester Spa (in The Dorchester hotel) which have reopened after renovation in 2009.
