09:45 28/06/2014 A resort hotel with pretty pool, near to Patong Beach and Bangla Road. These are the criteria upon searching for accommodation in Phuket. But we’re facing a double dilemma, “budget and time”. We shun last minute travel and hotel bookings as surely it is expensive. Our funds just recently depleted after getting hitched. No way we’ll surrender the call of Poseidon. Our feet are itching to soak in the sand and whiff that salty breeze. We ain’t give up to obtain that damn cheapo temporary abode. Amazingly Agoda throws some pixie dust like a fairy godmother granting someone’s wish. Yay!

Amata Resort is a 3-star resort hotel located near to main Patong area. It is walking distance to both Patong Beach and Bangla Road. There are plenty of shops (souvenirs), massage parlors, money changers, restaurants lined up just as you walk to the main road.
Just as we walk towards the hotel, a young guy wearing a blithe smile took over our luggage which we happily oblige. We always appreciate hotels with extra accommodating staffs. Before we even reach the reception a refreshing welcome drink was already serve. Now, that is hospitality.
We took time and enjoyed our refreshment while watching some nice art decors above the reception counter. One could tell easily this hotel is bit age but still keep it’s charm in tact. We love sitting on the wooden chairs and mesmerizing it’s antiquated theme.
