Nine Lounge and Bar Phuket Thailand

Nine Lounge and Bar Phuket Thailand  |  Phuket, Thailand  |  I would have to say that Nine Lounge & Bar was my favorite bar in Phuket which you may refer to as a gay bar if you wish, but goes far beyond from that. Next to Lim’s Restaurant, fantastic Thai Food. Great drinks, beautiful indoor/outdoor design. Regardless gay or straight, the place to be seen in Phuket, after 10PM till the music fades away or you decide to move on to Soi Paradise. Conde Nast Traveller included them into their 2009 Hotlist of World’s Best Bars. Ask for my friend Daneil there, and tell him Carlos Melia sent you, maybe you’ll get a drink on me, or an extra shot of vodka in your drink. CM

Social Media VIP Status by Bangkok Airways

Social Media VIP Status by Bangkok Airways  |  Thailand  |  This morning from my hotel in Phuket, while packing, I tweeted …”04AM in the morning AWAKE packing. On my way to the airport to take my @bangkok_airways flight from #Phuket to #Krabi. GMorning #Thailand…”, as I normally do, to keep everyone up-to-date of my whereabouts and then headed off to Phuket International Airport. Innocently and unaware of the power of Social Media and the excellent CRM – Customer Relationship Management, that both airlines and hotels master in Asia. I was fully stunned by what happened next.

Hotel Check IN Andara Resort

Hotel Check IN Andara Resort  |  Kamala Beach, Phuket, Thailand   |  Two days ago I checked in at the wonderful Andara Resort (Anda = Andaman Sea and Dara = Start meaning Star of the Andaman Sea). From the moment you walk into the lobby till the time you go to breakfast or the Fitness Center, the service and attention to detail is incredible. Everyone in the hotel knows your name, who you are and what you do. I was given a huge duplex one bedroom suite with a private rooftop infinity pool. I would suggest Andara Resort for traveling for longer periods than 5 nights and looking for a full self apartment experience with all the world class services of a luxury five stars hotel.  Continue reading Hotel Check IN Andara Resort

Hopefully this will save you all lots of time, and allow you to better enjoy those areas worth spending time at. Patong Beach might be the most renown area and beach among regular tourists coming to Phuket, my suggestion, do not waste your time there.

Gay Weddings made in Thailand

Gay Weddings made in Thailand   |  Phuket, Thailand  |  I am entering my thirds week in Thailand, and so far I have been part of two gay weddings while here. First in Chiang Mai on the northern region and yesterday in Phuket Island. It seems that Thailand is becoming a very popular destination among Asians and Australians to come to tie the knot, and judging from what I experienced yesterday, hotels are coping pretty well with this new trend.

Soi Paradise Gay Night of Phuket

Soi Paradise Gay Night of Phuket  |  Patong Beach. Phuket, Thailand  |  Tonight I went out with some local friends and a crazy group of Swiss guys I met at Chiang Mai, to the gay night of Phuket. It was so much fun, and the gay scene in Thailand in general, but in Phuket is crazy. Our one and only destination on Soi Paradise, which I would define as the Gay District of Phuket, and we went straight to the most happening bar/disco, called Kiss.
