Enjoy Phuket Even When it Rains
The rainy season in Thailand is seen as a time of renewal, rejuvenation and frankly, a respite from the hot days that proceeded it. However, for those who visit Thailand, the rain sometimes plays spoilsport. Lounging on the beach to catch some sunshine might not be possible when it is raining outside but luckily there are many alternatives. At the Mai Khao Beach in Phuket, there is actually plenty to do when it rains outside, so holidaymakers have nothing to fret about. Here are just some things that you can do in Mai Khao Beach when it rains.
Treat Yourself at Tea Tree Spa
If you weren’t planning to visit already (and we believe you should definitely plan to visit anyway), the Tea Tree Spa at the Holiday Inn Resort Phuket Mai Khao Beach is the spa treatment you need. With the thunderstorms passing overhead and the raining beating down outside, a Tea Tree Spa Signature Scrub and Massage is a great way to pass the time. For this treatment, the spa staff uses our signature tea tree scrub to revitalize your skin before you go in for a 90-minute massage, which includes hot stones and aromatherapy massage oil. The final step is an express facial treatment and a spa milk bath, so that you leave clean and refreshed! The Tea Tree Signature treatment is only one of many treatments and spa packages that you can enjoy at the Tea Tree Spa. Read about more of them here.
Wholesome Family Activities at the Holiday Inn
Just because it is raining outside it doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty to do indoors, especially if you are staying at the Holiday Inn Resort in Mai Khao Beach. We have family activities such as batik-painting, cake decorating, popcorn movie nights and even some fun Thai language classes for you to enjoy. If you love Thai food as much as we do, you’ll no doubt be very interested in learning some basics of Thai cooking from our staff. Spend some time learning a few new things with us, it’ll be like making hay while the rain pours!
Jungceylon Shopping Mall
You don’t have to be cooped up indoors in the rain. Instead of just picking a sedentary activity, why not pay a visit for Jungceylon Shopping Mall near Patong Beach. Jungceylon is the biggest mall in Phuket and it has all the activities that one would expect from a mall. You can go bowling, watch some movies at the cinema or enjoy some food at one of the many restaurants. Of course, you can spend some time shopping too!
Central Festival Mall
If Jungceylong is not exactly your cup of tea and you want to find more shopping options, Central Festival is another great destination. The Central Department store and a large variety of other speciality chains make Central Festival Mall a one-stop destination for almost any kind of shopping. For sports goods, you can visit Supersports, B2S has stationery, books and media and Power Buy has all kinds o
consumer electronic goods. There also a different selection of restaurants and boutiques in this mall, so you can expect a few different things here.
Thai Boxing Class
Aside from all the wonderful family activities, the Holiday Inn Resort also offers some sports activities. While Water polo and beach volleyball might be a no-go in the rain, our Thai boxing class is a fun way to spend the afternoon. Muay Thai, sometimes referred to as Thai boxing or Thai kickboxing, is a traditional form of martial arts that has been practised in Thailand for a long time now. Learn a few techniques from this class and get a workout in at the same time, it’s really the best of both worlds.
