Around Balesin Royal Balesin Villa, Costa del Sol and Phuket
On your way to this side of the island, you will drive by a long stretch of winding road and in the evening it’s pitch black. The first signs you will see that there’s something waiting for you is some bright light from a distance and most likely that’s the Royal Balesin Villa looking majestic in the evening. We had dinner at Phuket on the evening of our first day and it was a good start. The satay wasn’t so stellar but everything else especially the Pad Thai blended perfectly well with the bottles of Stella Artois we consumed. The following evening we had dinner at Costa del Sol where the star of our dinner was the to die for cochinillo paired with overflowing sangria and wine. It was the only way to usher in a weekend in the island.
