Our arrival at Phulay Bay Ritz Carlton was kind of surreal. As it was already nightfall, the reception pavilion was surrounded by thousands of candles, some real, some not. It is a visually stunning entrance into the resort, which unfortunately was not captured on our camera.
We were welcomed by the assistant GM of Phulay Bay and our Butler Ing. There is no check-in/ check-out counter at the reception area; the butler handles everything in the villa. From the reception area, we were whisked away in a golf-cart to our Reserve Villa.

Miang Khum, a welcome snack. I mentioned to Butler Ing that I love Miang Khum and she arranged a plate of it everyday.
