Unless you have a uber limited menu or a really bad chef in the house, I can't imagine how could anyone dislike room service. Make a call and have freshly made meals delivered straight to your bed side? I can live with that kind of luxury for a lifetime! So for our very-chill Phuket trip, we had not one, but two in-room meals in Holiday Inn Resort!
The American Breakfast
At 10 sharp in the morning, our doorbell rang and the hotel staff brought in our very large tray of breakfast. Plentiful to share between the two of us.
Our pastry basket were served warm and flaky, which I supposed were baked just hour ago. The fruit platter was really abundant too, though I wasn't quite sure what to do with the lime.
A casual splash of milk for the cereal and a playful jab at the poached egg, excellent to start the day!
Phad Thai, Grilled Ham and Cheese Sandwich
Admittedly, we toned down at Trattoria Capri da Rico just so that we can explore more of the in-room menu. With options from the four in-house restaurants, there's sure to be something for everyone. I opted for the classic noodles which should be from Charm Thai, served similarly in a cracker bowl and full of wok flavours. The girlfriend's simple choice of sandwich and fries made good munchies in front of the TV.
And like all Thai meals, they sure weren't sloppy with the condiments!
