Other Favorite Parts of our Vacation

At Khatatoni, our resort in Phuket, this elephant was waiting on our bed.  So cute!  It is made from rolled up towels and washcloths with pieces of an orchid for the face and toenails.

Okay, this HAD to be one of our favorite parts....massages by the pool, in the grass, on the beach, etc. for 300 baht...um, that's about $10....yeah, we each had a few of these.  There was a breeze and you could hear the waves crashing on the shore.  It was amazing!  The first day, I was talked into the foot scrub and then after my massage they asked me if I wanted a pedicure.

me: How much is that?
them:  150 baht (about $4)
me:  um, yeah, let's go ahead and do that too...

My splurge spa day cost about $23 in the end...nice...


Disclaimer....I would have totally posted a picture of me too to be fair, but my sweet hubby couldn't find the camera on the day I got my massage on the lawn outside our room.

Oh my goodness - I don't blame you one bit for taking complete advantage of that. No wonder you all looked so relaxed in all the pictures! :)

How relaxing......you should have indulged in one a day! :) And how cool is that-----right on the lawn?

How crazy fun is that? Cheap and awesome pampering? What a fun time for both you and hubby. Way to go girl!

A day at a spa sounds really good to me right now.

That is a deal for sure, How nice!! I just had my first pedicure in my whole long life last week and it was heavenly.. & I didn't pay for it either it was a gift.. It costs way more than that here in the States...

Earen said...

Oh my...that sounds heavenly! I was reading over your blogs (I'm a bit behind) and it looks like you had such a great trip. How fun!

No way! Let's just say the massages at the hotel we stayed at in Dallas were SLIGHTLY more than that. Which is why I didn't get one. You lucky girl!
