Not too Close and Not Too Far – The Best Hotel in Phuket for Plane Spotting
21 October 2018
Plane-spotting is Just a Leisurely Beach Stroll Away
Everyone wants to find that perfect Phuket family resort. For plane-spotting aficionados visiting Phuket that means a hotel near Phuket airport that allows you to get up close to the runway. The beach at the foot of the runway on St. Maarten Island in the Caribbean has become famous for its proximity to jets landing and taking off. But Phuket offers the same type of experience by visiting the pristine white sands of Mai Khao beach. Holiday Inn Resort Phuket Mai Khao Beach is the perfect place at which avid plane-spotters canbook a stay, as much for its proximity to Phuket airport as for its tropical tranquillity and the facilities it has to offer. Just a leisurely beach stroll away to the south from the Holiday Inn brings you to the foot of the runway at Phuket Airport. From there you can watch the planes landing and departing over the ocean from the safety and comfort of the beach. The runway is protected by a fence between the runway and the beach. Plane-spotters should always stay on the beach-side of this fence to avoid security violations and for your own personal safety.
The High Season Brings an Increase in Air Traffic
Now that the high season is quickly approaching, the airport is gearing up for a sizable increase in arrivals as holiday-makers flock to the sunny beaches of Phuket. This makes the next few months the perfect time to book a stay at Holiday Inn Resort Phuket Mai Khao Beach. With the end of the rainy season and the beginning of bright skies and balmy weather from November through March, this also makes the upcoming months the perfect time for plane spotting. You will soon be able to spot planes from all over the world arriving in Phuket, from sleek and small executive jets to jumbo airliners. By booking your stay at a hotel near Phuket airport, you will be able to easily enjoy all the plane-spotting you could possibly desire.
Relax at the Holiday Inn Resort Phuket Mai Khao Beach
When it’s time to relax, stroll back along the beach and explore everything that Holiday Inn has on offer at Mai Khao Beach. This hotel is definitely a Phuket family resort. Besides a Kid’s Club and a family pool catering to the younger members of the family, at the Holiday Inn in Mai Khao beach, kids can dine for free. For adults, you can attend a Thai cooking class, workout in our fitness centre or try your hand at Batik-painting or Muay Thai boxing. For the less adventurous, dine in one of three dining facilities or simply have a drink at the pool bar. There’s never a shortage of things to do. And best of all, you’ll enjoy your stay surrounded by the Holiday Inn’s warm, ‘Thai-style’ service and efficiency. Whether you’re an avid plane-spotter or simply want to enjoy Thai hospitality, the Holiday Inn Resort Phuket Mai Khao Beach is the place to be for your Thailand holiday.< Back to Blog
