Thailand Discover Recover Review

Thailand Discover Recover Review


My last visit to Thailand was twelve years ago as a eighteen year old backpacker, My memories of this trip was of $5 a night guesthouses, full moon parties, long journeys on the back of old pick up trucks, lots of hangovers and greasy curries. So as you can imagine this luxury ten-day Thai health and fitness Discover Recover holiday was certainly a very different experience from my last visit, in fact it was was absolute bliss!

Bangkok was not the big monstrous dirty city I remembered. I can say I fell in love with the city on this recent trip, staying at the Metropolitan by COMO in a Penthouse suite we had a magnificent view of Bangkok from our room, we spent our three days here visiting temples, exploring Chinatown, and of course shopping, however the best moment of our time in Bangkok was the stunning degustation meal we enjoyed at the famous Nahm Restaurant, this was a perfect introduction to Thai cuisine for us and some of the most flavoursome food I have ever tasted, definitely a must try when in Bangkok!

Arriving in Phuket at night for the next seven days of our trip, we awoke to breathtaking views of the Andaman Sea from our bedroom. Words can not describe how stunning the view was from our verandah pool suite at Point Yamu by COMO. The suite itself was huge and spacious and the decor very modern and stylish, I believe I took more photos of the architecture and decor within the hotel than I did of anything else on our holiday.

One of the highlights of our stay was Point Yamu's famous healthy breakfasts, each morning we were treated to an ala carte selection along with buffet style yoghurts, fresh healthy juices and wheat grass shots, divine!

This trip almost felt like a honeymoon for us, so much quite time spent relaxing on our verandah by the pool. Yoga classes and massages just added to the calming effect. Point Yamu’s location was perfect, it was so quite and serene, away from the hustle and bustle of Patong, yet easy enough to travel around the island by car or motorbike, the hotel also provided complimentary excursions to a nearby stunning island. Another highlight were the staff at Point Yamu, they couldn’t do enough to make us feel welcome and accommodate our every need.

This is the first time I have return home from a holiday feeling like I didn’t need a major detox. We certainly both felt 100% healthier and de-stressed.

We would love to thank Samantha for organising every single aspect of our trip, and Health and Fitness Travel for providing us with this amazing experience that we will never forget. We highly recommend Health and Fitness Travel and COMO Hotels; everything was perfect in absolutely every way.
