The Frutta Boutique Patong Beach in Phuket, Thailand

ABBEY: We got a nice boutique when we went to Hongkong (Hop Inn) and we tried if we can repeat the same experience on Phuket. Lo and behold, Frutta Boutique just opened months before our trip. We got a promotional rate for 2500baht per day for a Superior Fruit Shake (with breakfast) room. 

All the people operating the hotel is warm, approachable and friendly; from their general manager Mameka to Kevin and all the staff. They also help us to book the airport transfers as well the tours we had on our stay.

Buffet breakfast is served; you will be overloaded by the fruits like watermelon and pineapple. The hotel is only a 15-20mins walk to the beach and Frutta is lending bikes for the guests. It also has a swimming pool on 2nd floor and entertainment room as well. We haven't got the chance to use it as tours occupied most of out trip.
They also have a restaurant to fill-in your hunger; be it snack, lunch or dinner.

The room is cozy and clean. Complimentary water was served in glass bottles which differs from the other hotel that we stayed in. The sheets are white and soft; very comfortable for sleeping.

Our overall stay is fantastic, fun and great. I would recommend this boutique hotel for those who'll go to Patong beach at Phuket.

WILL: Yeah I know it is my fault, why I am arranging for an out-of- the-country tour every time it is holiday. Well I just want to maximize my company leaves. Anyway, as always, I do the planning for almost a year and that is why I can haggle for the hotels and wait for great airplane promos.

I have a list of not less than 10 hotels to check one by one from its location, facilities, and even the rates. Frutta Boutique caught my attention. Why? Because it is a new, not more than a year old. It has colorful and vibrant rooms, perfect location (15 minutes away from the beach), THB2500 for a night with free breakfast.

As we stepped out from the hotel transfer van, a very lively Ms. Mameka greeted us! Gosh, I am really at the land of smiles, haha. Their jolliness is contagious. They gave us welcome drink and escorted us at our room.

Our room is spacious, the bathroom is very clean, the sheets are all white and very sanitised  the veranda is not too small nor big. The breakfast will make you full but not that full so you can still fit in your swimsuits. The free candies and free fruits at the lobby are overflowing. We have a not so strong Wi-fi connection in our room but it is okay. Every time we are having a vacation, as much as possible, Abbey and I want to cut-off the connection from the cyberworld.

In total, I will truly recommend this place. Oh, I forgot, they also arranged all our tours with a a very big discount from the published rates of tour companies.
