Day 2 - 21 Dec 2013
Andaman Club @ Koh Son Island, Mynmar
|(A 5-star hotel - The Andaman Club Resort)|
|(Beautiful swimming pools and landscaping)|
|(A clean comfortable room)|
From the jetty we were transported to Andaman Club Resort by the hotel van. We checked in the hotel at B2900/room. A refundable deposit of B4000 was required. We had to borrow an adapter from the front counter as the socket for electricity in Myanmar is different from Thailand. After we bathed and performed our prayers, we rested for a while.
Andaman Club is a five-star island casino and golf resort in Myanmar. It is located on 730 ha of Thahtay Kyun Island (Koh Son) within the Mergui Archipelago in the Andaman Sea. Directly adjacent to Ranong, in the south of Thailand and to Kawthaung, Myanmar (formerly Victoria Point) is a region famous for its gems, pearls, flora and fauna. The pier is 5 km from the Ranong city centre and it takes 20 minutes to cross the Andaman Sea to the island resort.
It is owned and operated by the VES Group of Thailand, under a long-term concession from the Myanmar government. Its facilities include a 205-room hotel, an 18-hole golf course designed by Jack Nicklaus, a casino, a water sports and scuba facility, a zoo, a fitness centre, a discothèque-cum-karaoke club, restaurants, a bar lounge, a 24-hour café, a business centre and a duty free shop.

Once rested, we had late lunch or early dinner at the Victoria Restaurant. We had white rice with delicious Tom Yum Kung with vegetable green curry. The Tom Yum was deliciously hot and very good.

|(A lingering therapeutic oil massage)|
We booked for an aromatherapy massage and Thai massage at Yuzana Spa for B2500 for 2 persons. The combo massage was so therapeutic to the body and mind. And again, tonight we slept very soundly.
