Mel: Thailand & Singapore

Winter had begun and family George needed to escape it!! We decided on a family trip to Phuket and Singapore with our two year old (adventurous, I know!!!)


The flight over with Singapore Airlines was faultless. Very polished, probably helped by the fact that we had an extra seat to share. Best in-flight entertainment I have seen. Cabin crew were very accommodating with Mast 2, who did decide to have a little cry before falling asleep for the majority of the way… We transitted through Changi in Singapore, which is actually a great airport for children. Lots of space to run, play equipment and some interactive entertainment.


Before we knew it, we had landed in Phuket and were making our way to the beautiful Mom Tri’s Villa Royale on Kata Beach..


This property is a little slice of paradise. Small enough that the staff know you by name, big enough that constantly seemed like we were the only ones there! Perched on a cliff overlooking Kata Noi beach, the grounds are immaculate and there is a choice of 3 pools (although, only 1 of these pools is suitable for small children). We had a little villa with its own pool and plenty of space for our little darling (terror!!) and it suited us perfectly.


Food there is always top-notch and we enjoyed breakfast overlooking the andaman sea. It was low-season, so no swimming in the beach, as it was too rough. We did lots of walking and explored the local area – it was Karon we preferred for meals with Two Chefs and Wine Connection our favourites. Most places we visited were enthralled by Mast 2 who lapped up all the extra attention. One must is Sunday Brunch at Twin Palms in Surin of a Sunday. About a 45 minute drive from Kata, it is well worth the trip. An amazing array of delicacies and favourites are available to eat  – and wash down with a glass of bubbles 🙂


We visited Singapore for 3 nights on our way home. We found it to be a very family-friendly destination with plenty to keep the kids entertained! Musts are THE ZOO, SENTOSA ISLAND and Gardens by the Bay. Eating out is expensive but the quality is amazing. We loved the choice of restaurants at Clark Quay!! Mast 2 especially loved “the Port of Lost Wonder” at Sentosa Island – a waterpark designed for 2-10 year olds.
