Summer. Hair gets lighter. Skin gets darker. Water gets warmer. Drinks get colder. Music gets louder. Nights get longer. Life gets better. It’s summer time, especially at Amatara! Arriving at the lobby, I already put on my “excitement” groove, just want to jump into the pool right away! But first, Let’s go check out the room! I love this Ocean View Villa, there’s a lot of windows, sun decks and I am in love with those turquoise walls & doors, it really feels like a little house by the sea, where you just sit and feel the sea breeze come in. Walking into this one of a kind bathroom Imagine relaxing in this bath tub with all...

May you never be too busy to stop and breathe under the palm trees. Is it summer yet? xx Leslie www.nakaislandphuket.com

Happy Chinese New Year! I am sure the New Years treat you well. Wishing everyone good times with “Salt in the Water and Sand in the Air.” This is what everyday should be like, agree? The Naka Island, an exclusive boutique resort on the Naka Yai Island, A Luxury Collection Hotel & Resort by Starwood. Only 25 mins from the airport (including 5 mins speedboat), and it feels like a world away. I couldn’t ask for more to be accessible to this unique, authentic, and enriching place and not having to deal with my seasick! A warm welcome with a buggy ride to a welcome ceremony, waking up the dragon to notify him we are here! Nice t...
