Time for a splurge

Had enough of bamboo bungalows furnished with a mosquito net modelled on swiss cheese? Of bucket flush toilets with a hole in the bucket? Of soiled sheets you wouldn’t bury your garbage in? Of chickens and dogs waking you at 4am? Then don’t fret — we’ve just added a new series of features to offer you an escape from the hardship of backpackerdom — Travelfish splurges — and when we say splurge, we mean SPLURGE!

These stories will pick out what we believe the absolute best of the best, and we’re not holding out on price — that’s right, in all likelihood, you will need an expense account — preferably someone else’s!

As always these places will have been reviewed anonymously — so no perks, no freebies and no hotel propaganda — you’ll be reading exactly what we think.

We’re starting off with the spectacular Trisara Resort on Phuket and next week will be jumping over to the other side of the gulf to a very special spot on Ko Samui… we’ll try and rattle off one every week, but don’t hold us to it!

So without more ado, please meet Trisara.
