Novotel Phuket Phokeethra is a luxury hotel set in picturesque Phuket Old Town, the historic centre of Phuket City that was built on the proceeds of the island’s tin-mining wealth during the 19th century, and which is famed for its Sino-Portuguese architecture.
Some of the gracious old mansions have been turned into boutique hotels and museums, whilst the classic shophouses have become galleries, restaurants, boutiques and handicraft outlets.
Rambles around the Old Town will take in lively markets, little family-owned eateries selling local food, and colourful temples and shrines.
The hotel, which features views of the town, mountain and bay is newly built, and has all the modern comforts a traveller would expect when staying in five-star accommodation.
This includes a Phuket outdoor swimming pool, a fitness centre, and a gracious city-centre spa, offering guests the opportunity to enjoy everything from a traditional Phuket massage to a full spa journey, and a lazy swim in the pool to a workout at Phukets best fitness centre.
The Phuket hotel gym is InBalance Fitness, a Novotel brand that is recognised not just as Phukets best fitness centre, but at Novotel properties throughout Thailand.
Guests on a long stay, and local residents, can take advantage of a special gym membership price, which after discount is just 12,500 baht per year. This includes one hour a month with a personal trainer, access to the swimming pool, and a one-night stay in a Superior room.
Located on the third floor, this Phuket hotel gym is fully equipped with the latest cardio and strength equipment, and is open 24 hours a day. Access is by keycard, for the security of guests and members.
The current gym membership price for Phukets best fitness centre is valid until 31 December 2019.
Directly next to the Phuket hotel gym is the Novotel Phuket outdoor swimming pool, with much of the pool area protected from inclement weather by the hotel’s projecting structure, and with a gorgeous view across the city.
Access to this Phuket outdoor swimming pool, which is open daily from 7am to 7pm, is the same as when visiting the Phuket hotel gym, which means security for the Novotel Phuket Phokeethra guests, and for regular users enjoying the special gym membership price.
Perfectly complementing Phukets best fitness centre and the Phuket outdoor swimming pool, InBalance Spa Leticia is also a Novotel brand.
Leticia spa at Novotel Phuket Phokeethra offers guests a traditional Phuket massage, a comprehensive menu of Thai aroma, sports and foot massages, wraps, rubs and body scrubs, and rejuvenation skin treatments.
The spa, which is open daily from 10am to 10pm, is also on the third floor, adjacent to the Phuket outdoor swimming pool and the Phuket hotel gym. Private treatment rooms ensure that guests enjoy to the full the tranquillity of this calm retreat, and the gentle ministrations of dedicated therapists employing traditional techniques to soothe mind, body and soul.
Regular guests and local residents taking advantage of the special gym membership price to use the Novotel Phuket Phokeethra facilities will also be interested to see the special prices and promotions offered by Leticia spa.
Currently, the spa has its summer promotion programme, designed especially to counter the hot days and the effects of time spent exploring the fascinating sights of Phuket Old Town.
While a traditional Phuket massage is always a favourite way of relieving fatigue, the Aroma Massage takes this a step further, being a 1.5-hour treatment using fragrant and therapeutic essential oils to activate the natural healing properties in your body, and ease muscle tension. Usually 1,200 baht, this treatment during the summer months is reduced to 800 baht.
Another big discount is available during the summer on the Sports Massage, especially useful to those taking unaccustomed exercise and sporting activities. This specialised one-hour treatment involves the systematic manipulation of the soft tissues in the body that are relevant to playing particular sports, therefore offering both relief and relaxation. Usually priced at 1,600 baht, during the summer the Sports Massage is just 1,200 baht.
The Novotel Phuket Phokeethra Leticia spa offers traditional Phuket massage, scalp massage, back and shoulders massage, and foot massage, also known as foot reflexology.
The Leticia Signature Massage is a favourite Phuket massage that uses essential oils, massaged into the skin, and includes a warm foot compress and a head massage. During this year, the price for the 60-minute version is 1,200 baht, and the 90-minute version is 1,600 baht.
The Thai Touch, a traditional massage, is rooted in ancient heritage, using pressure point massage and stretching to reduce tension. This treatment includes foot massage, and head and back massage. The price is 950 baht for 60 minutes, and 1,200 baht for 90 minutes.
Other traditional massages are equally as reasonably priced, making the third floor of the Novotel Phuket Phokeethra the perfect destination for you to keep on top of your personal wellness programme, and if you are a regular visitor or a local resident, to enjoy the added benefits of a special gym membership price to keep you in tip-top form.
Add to this the fact that the hotel has 180 beautifully appointed guest rooms and suites, offering modern and spacious accommodation for all types of traveller, including couples and families with young children, and staying here becomes a genuine Phuket Old Town experience.
Novotel Phuket Phokeethra is the best-located hotel in Phuket Old Town from which to explore this fascinating historic locality, and to use as a base from which to travel to other parts of the island. This luxury hotel is also near to the main departure jetties for boats heading out for island hopping excursions into the bay.
