Thavorn Palm Beach Resort: Phuket, Thailand

For the last two nights we spent on Phuket, we had the pleasure of relaxing and exploring Karon Beach and the Thavorn Palm Beach Resort. As their slogan says, “nature”, we were surely transported from the Karon beach town to a jungle serenity.  Our stay at The Thavorn Palm Beach Resort Phuket on Karon Beach was just as the founding family of the Thavorn hotel group intended: peaceful. Located on a massive beachfront property, the tranquil grounds of Thavorn Palm Beach Resort house a beautiful orchid garden, two resident tortoises, rabbits and a host of birds and chickens. When we walked up the stairs at the front entrance into the lobby we were immediately brought to the VIP lounge for check in. The lounge is part of the, soon to be launched, reward program which gives members access to coffee, tea, soft drinks and snacks throughout their stay. After completing the check in process we were shown to our room. There are several room types at the Thavorn Palm Beach Resort, all of which are …

Coffee Talk @ Thavorn Palm Beach Resort: Phuket, Thailand

Coffee Talk is one of the restaurants at Thavorn Palm Beach Resort.  It is a quaint coffee shop with some really cool decor.  It truly made us feel like we were back in New York.  I couldn’t resist the Matcha latte!  It was creamy, flavorful and a perfect pick me up, packed with caffeine.  We also tried the Thai Tea, iced with tea ice cubes and sweetened with condensed milk.  This was a huge treat and something I still dream about. The coffee selection here is extensive and they have what they call “Siphon coffee”.  This was a really cool experience.  The heat the water by flame and it rises up into the top of the siphon.  Once brewed, the coffee filters back down into the bottom of the glass, ready to be served.  The coffee winds up being very smooth and flavorful, it does not burn or have a harsh aftertaste.  We gave it an accent by adding some dōTERRA cinnamon bark oil!! This is definitely one of the best ways to brew coffee …

The White House Tavern: Aspen, CO

The White House Tavern was our last meal in Aspen, and boy did we go out with a bang! We sat at the bar with Tyler and a full view of the open kitchen. Although this was only half of the kitchen, as the other half is in the back, we were still able to see a lot of the exciting action. Tyler started us off sharing a local beer on draught, while we decided what to have. Once he told us the special was a version of a reuben, we were sold. We just had to decide if we wanted to have the super popular chicken sandwich or a burger. I do not eat burgers very often because I like to have my burger rare or medium rare and sometimes it is hard to find a place that you can order this way. When I told Tyler this, he said “Go with the burger!”, so we did. We sipped our beer, which was really good, and toasted to a fantastic week in Aspen. We …
