Last week the stunning Gulu Lalvani’s Royal Phuket Marina was the host of the 7th International Boat show, PIMEX.
This is one event I really look forward to every year, there’s always a great atmosphere and it’s fun getting on board the boats, even if I do have to pretend to have enough money to buy one…
With great names like Ferretti, Riviera, Crownline and my personal favorite Pershing it’s no wonder I had such a nice afternoon starting with a fantastic lunch at Les Anges on the boardwalk, one of the first restaurants I ever ate at in Phuket all those years ago, and a restaurant that I visit regularly and can truly claim that I have never had a bad meal in.
Then a pleasant few hours followed wandering around the boats, and various stands. As soon as I got home I get a call to ask if I had seen Naomi Cambell at the boat show? of course I had missed her by two hours, and also rumored to be on the Island was Kevin Spacey. Both believed to be staying at the luxurious Aman Puri resort (not together by the way), which is located at the southern end of Bang Tao Beach and the north end of Surin Beach on the fabulous West Coast.
For anybody that havs been lucky enough to have spent time in Phuket, it will come as no surprise why so many of the Rich & Famous choose to holiday here and then to go on to invest in property. After all when you are earning millions for walking down a runway or acting in a film, it’s nice to take a break after all the hard work.
With the Phuket’s famous sunsets on the West Coast, its clear to see why they favour this location, and with sea view apartments starting at 7.8 Million Bhat (approx 150,000 euros) in the same area, maybe you don’t have to be an Oscar winner or supermodel to enjoy the same lifestyle.
