SETTING THE SCENE
With an hourly direct flight heading south to Phuket, you could easily reach the enticing, palm-lined Kata Beach. There, on a nearby hill, is Eastin Yama Hotel Phuket, featuring a heaven on earth. ‘Yama’, in Hindu and Buddhist cosmology, is the third of the six heavens, in which dwellers are satisfied for all five senses. Owing to this concept, Eastin Yama Hotel Phuket carefully prepares every single element to pamper you as if you are in Yama heaven.
A selection of six types, ranging from Superior to Suite, of 104 rooms is available, with average space but fully equipped with amenities. Noticeable flora decoration appears almost everywhere in a room, or even in the hotel. It is a flower of paradise which is always illuminated, implying that it is waking hours when you could enjoy the unceasing touch of heaven at Eastin Yama Hotel.
Fulfilling your visit to Phuket, Eastin Yama Hotel would not let you miss the southern taste. SENZEES, a Thai restaurant, provides you with an all-day dining experience with authentic farm-fresh cuisine prepared with organic ingredients and traditional techniques. Just a few steps from SENZEES, you can lie down by the pool and enjoy snacks and drinks from the noticeably blue SIP Pool Bar.
* Make sure info is most up-to-date. As you see “Eastin Yama Hotel is scheduling an opening of ..” in the article, you should recheck whether it has opened. In this case, there are only SENZEES and SIP Pool Bar at the hotel now.
WHY I’D RETURN
A memorable scenic sunset from the rooftop pool appears sharply in my mind when I think of Eastin Yama Hotel. Whether you chill out on your terrace or lie down near the SIP Pool Bar, you can enjoy the wonderful dusk. The taste of all dishes at SENZEES is very alluring: I do miss the authentic Southern flavour there!
