Far from the bustle of Patong, private pool villas, cliffside views and luxurious experiences await at the Wyndham Grand Phuket Kalim Bay
In partnership with Wyndham Grand Phuket Kalim Bay
As the festive season approaches, many Malaysians are planning a long-awaited holiday to Phuket. And while Patong Beach will remain the preferred party spot, couples looking to reconnect are opting for more secluded parts of the southern Thai island.
One such area is Hat Kalim, or Kalim Bay, along the western coast. Tucked away from Phuket’s busier nightlife spots and situated at a higher elevation, Kalim Bay offers couples more privacy, stunning views of the Andaman Sea and luxurious romantic getaways at sprawling cliffside resorts such as Wyndham Grand Phuket Kalim Bay.
If you’re visiting Phuket with your partner, consider a stay in the Kalim Bay area where. Here are 6 romantic things you can do when you get there.
1. Share golden hour in a private Pool Villa
Watch the day wane and the light shift to a golden glow over the Andaman Sea, from the privacy of your very own Pool Villa. The Wyndham Grand Phuket’s Pool Villas give you a choice of viewpoints from which to soak up the sunset: the richly-appointed living room, your very own swimming pool, or the bathtub in the massive bath suite.
With over 120 sqm all to yourself, each Pool Villa has plenty of room to splash out on amenities: from a balcony with his-and-hers lounging chairs to a full-size bathtub with top-notch toiletries.
2. Enjoy a floating breakfast for two
Finding new ways to enjoy the private pool is half the fun of staying at a Wyndham Grand Phuket Kalim Bay. Consider breakfast: skip the buffet line and order up a “floating breakfast” while luxuriating in the pool. The Wyndham Grand Phuket’s Instagram-worthy floating breakfast offers Asian, Continental or American options, and rates start at THB 1250 (MYR 156).
3. Savour the sunset at Infiniti bar
Located near the lobby at Wyndham Grand Phuket Kalim Bay, and overlooking the Andaman Sea, Infiniti bar is the perfect place to share drinks and conversation as you watch the sunset cast a shimmering ember hue over the horizon. Beyond the romantic view, Infiniti rounds out the experience with mixologist-crafted cocktails and Thai-infused tapas. Happy hour takes place every night from 5PM to 7PM.
4. Enjoy a couple’s treatment at Zana Spa
What’s couple time without a couple’s massage? Feel your cares expertly kneaded away by the expert team at Zana Spa, whose menu of personalised therapies combine the best of both traditional Thai and contemporary wellness techniques. Try the nuad pra kob, a Thai massage technique that combines over a dozen herbs in a steamed cotton compress; or the pulsating Vichy shower that leaves you feeling like you’re floating on water. Enjoy all these with a treatment for two at the Zana Spa, and leave a couple of hours later feeling relaxed, in balance and in love.
5. Decorate your room for romance
What does romance look like to you? A bath garnished with floating flower petals? A bedroom lit only by candles? Swimming in your private pool, with sparkling wine at hand? The Wyndham Grand Phuket Kalim Bay can create exactly the mood you have in mind, with custom room decorations and accessories available upon request. Pool Villa guests can turn the romantic mood up to eleven with the Romantic Float, a floating tray with golden sparkling wine, strawberry tuxedo chocolate bites, cheese and crackers, at THB 1,900 (MYR 237) per tray for two.
6. Plan an unforgettable surprise
Whether you’re launching a budding romance or sealing the deal, the Wyndham Grand Phuket’s Surprise Planner Team can help you set the stage for your amorous tete-a-tete. Loved one’s birthday? Romantic wedding proposal? Bachelor/bachelorette party? Leave the planning and implementation to the team: they can enhance your idea with personal, thoughtful touches that say a whole lot more than any whispered words.
