This post is part of a series. To read more from this trip:
After bidding farewell to our gorgeous Ocean Front suite at the JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa, we made a quick 30-minute visit to the Coral Executive Lounge before our upcoming flight to Kuala Lumpur.
Phuket has Coral Lounges in both the Domestic (T1) and International (T2) Terminals. The Coral Executive Lounge in Terminal 2 is located on the 4th floor of the International Terminal alongside a handful of other Coral and Thai Royal Orchid lounges.
The lounge features a small spread of hot and cold food – not too shabby for a small contract lounge in Phuket.
There is seating capacity for about 50 people as well, with views that look down towards the terminal.
The lounge also provides WiFi, which tested quickly enough to stream video.
The most impressive feature of this small lounge is the complementary 15-minute head, neck and shoulder massage. We didn’t see it advertised anywhere, except in the conditions section of the Priority Pass website.
I’m guessing other guests weren’t aware of this benefit, since we were able to receive our massages immediately. Shortly after ours were finished, a line began to form and the two masseuses had their work cut out for them.
After our massages, we made our way to gate 84 to board our flight to Kuala Lumpur on MH787.
Overall, we were really pleased with the Coral Executive Lounge and would totally recommend dropping in for a quick massage if you find yourself with a little extra time in Phuket. Just don’t forget to bring change to tip your masseuse (we gave them US dollars since we didn’t have any Thai Baht left).
