I had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of staying at this luxurious resort for almost a week for work and it was simply amazeballs! If you're thinking of heading to Phuket for a nice beach getaway, this is it!
Every corner at Renaissance Phuket Resort & Spa is so picturesque and tranquil, my hard disk is bursting with the truckload of photos taken at the resort! It was like a dream come true to work at such an awesome resort and I am very, very impressed with the top-notch customer service by the event coordinator and all the staff at the resort. It was my virgin experience staying at a resort by Marriott and it definitely left a very lasting and fantastic impression in me!

There was this day where I had dinner at a coffeeshop along Killiney Road and I saw this western style cafe from opposite the road and I told my partner to check it out after our dinner. Never did I expect to find so many choices of pies, sourdough loaves, pies, sandwiches and even quality, decent coffee at this 3-month old cafe at affordable prices!
My partner and I were spoilt for choice! But we decided to have light desserts that will not be too heavy on our palette (and hips). The pear & almond tart was really delicious! I like that the tart base was not too flaky and the almond filling goes very well with the pear. Perfect with a cup of coffee. The chocolate eclair on the other hand, was not up to my liking. The crust was a tad too hard and even though the chocolate mousse filling was fantastic, it didn't make me wanna finish up the whole thing in seconds.
Food aside, I really love the whole stylish and simplistic decor of the whole cafe with a very warm and cosy ambience. The lady serving at the counter was very patient as she recommended some top favorites to us and I truly appreciate such service staff who are polite, speaks well and welcoming! We had a little chat with the counter staff and got to know that it's only opened for about 3 months.
