I think the older you get, the more you tend to think birthday celebrations are kinda overrated or maybe it’s just me? I used to love celebrating with a big group because I always thought, the more the merrier right! But, nowadays I realize it’s quite tiring to host a party and then the worst part has got to be the cleaning up part. I have been telling Jo I want to have a pool party for my 30th birthday celebration. I’m not joking but I have been dreaming to have a pool party since 2 years ago and it never came true because when at moment I start planning I get distracted by how much money and hardwork is needed in order to host a perfect pool party! Do I need to mention not everyone will turn up at the party in swimsuits? Yup, Malaysians are not very good when it comes to themed outfits T_T
So then Jo suggested we should plan a birthday getaway instead, just the two of us! We haven’t done any birthday getaways for a while so I told him, “why not!” The only problem was where should we go? At first we thought of Koh Samui because we’ve never been there but I told him I wanna just chill at a resort and do nothing so no sight seeing or any activities. Well obviously going to a new place is a big NONO, so I told him why not we just head to wherever destination that MAS was having a sale on hahhaa, so we ended up in Phuket! We have been there a few years ago and it was fun because we went island hopping and etc. So this time I demanded to just chill at a nice resort and get pampered!
We booked our ticket at RM300/pax for MAS which is quite a good deal right! Then when it was time to decide which resort we should stay at for our 4D3N trip. I was looking at hotels and I came across Pullman Arcadia Phuket located at Naithon beach which is 45 min away from Patong beach, but just 15 min away from the airport! This is perfect because I want to stay far away from tourist attractions! So we booked our 3 night stays at Pullman and since it’s my birthday we decided to go with their one bedroom pool villa!!!
Then off we went for my birthday getaway!
Our flight was not bad because it was only an hour+ flight and thank god they served a proper meal instead of the usual greasy sandwich hahahahaa.
Welcome to Pullman Arcadia, and I totally forgot to take pictures at the lobby because if you’re a guest staying in the villas you dont have to check in at the lobby. They will proceed to check you in in your villa! Villa guests also get a cellphone to call your personal concierge at any time! And oh, by the way, as a villa guest you also get a complimentary ride from the airport to the hotel, make sure you email them your arrival time after you have made your booking!
Lets get straight to our room!
Our HUGE walk-in-closet in the villa! Jo and I get to take one side each because we cant do that in our new house now T_T Each of us also get a robe, a pair of outdoor and indoor slippers! O yeah, a beach bag and towels for us too!
They provide all the necessary toiletries.
Ahhhh even the flowers also super pretty!
Our little private pool in the villa!
Another great thing about the room is that we get complimentary soft drinks and coffee everyday!!!
Our own private pool is just one step away from our bedroom!
Changed into my swimwear and went for a dip in the pool! The weather was perfect and the water was quite warm! My giant gold swan was a rental from Fullanda Swimwear! They provide float rentals any where in Thailand, please check out their page for more information!
Waking up to view like this is a blast, since we dont get this view often so I quickly grabbed my bikini and did a few shots.
Off we went to have breakfast and that’s our main entrance.

When we were bored of our own pool, we went to take a short walk at the beach around the hotel.
Then it started drizzling T__T so we headed back to our room. Nothing can stop us from enjoying our little getaway because we have a bathtub that we can enjoy even on a rainy day!

On our last night at Pullman, I celebrated my 30th birthday at the Italian restaurant in the hotel and cut my birthday cake in our bed in a bathrobe hahhaa. This is how you should really celebrate turning 30 haha.
Thanks to Jo and Pullman for making my 30th birthday so simple but memorable.
