Though it may seems like I've taken a lot of vacations over the last few months - this trip TRULLY felt like a REAL vacation.. you know, the kind where you don't need a vacation from your vacation when it's done? It was a nice mix of sigh-seeing at our own leisure, eating, bumming, shopping, resting.
Now time to photo dump. First up - our accommodations!
Sugar Palm Grand Hillside's concept was a new one for me - spacious, concrete floors in the bedroom and bathroom, massive shower and bath. Smelled slightly damp, breakfast buffet was expensive and nothing great, but all in all - enjoyed myself! Spent a few days just rolling around the room, and it was a great room to do that in. Location was great too - far away from the bustle of the town, but not too far away that it was an inconvenience to get there.
LUXX XL in Bangkok was AMAZING! Initially we were going to stay elsewhere so I'm really glad those first plans didn't push through. Hehe. The rooms were cozy, lots of visually engaging details in the lobby, massive hallways and doors which were great, awesome breakfast set in a lovely breakfast room, wah.. i could go on and on. Even the slippers I loved. Not a fan of the club music playing in the lobby, as well as the the glass bath "curtain" in the bathroom but no major biggie! As flights to BKK are pretty affordable from SG - would definitely consider heading back for some proper R&R.
