Cloud 19 is a small boutique hotel with a restaurant called Lianapa. This is a property which we have not fully explored - there is also a spa...
But the food is special.
There is a choice of a Thai menu and a Western menu and I do have a choice for the THai because there are dishes which are not strictly Thai - more of a 'hint of'.
Worth a visit if you are at the Cape Panwa end of Phuket - even if you only visit for a cocktail and then visit the local restaurant on the sand - 'On the Beach'.

Suay Restaurant is a special find near to the centre of Old Phuket Town and not far from the local bus stop. This is a necessity to visit - it is also included as a place to stop on the Phuket Heritage Trail - another necessary thing to do if you visit Phuket.
Now the food.
The food is a gentle balance of Thai food and it's spicy flavour and foods not normally associated with Thai foods. AND the balance is superb - from the fruit shakes to the apple salad with crispy fried cat fish cigar. There are a number of other dishes which you can choose from but all of them are delicately presented and are a pleasure to look at AND eat.
Here's the menu
Then the building is a small wooden bungalow with wooden chairs around it - inside is also carefully decorated - everything is thought out AND there is free wifi.

There is an S'n'P shop in the Phuket International Hospital so when I do have to visit we always buy a loaf of bread in there... but there is also a Blue Cup Coffee Shop inside the S'n'P.
The coffee is reasonable and does have a good flavour BUT the cups are obviously not ceramic or served with a handle / cover and this does detract form the pleasure - but you are in a hospital?
But F.Y.I the best hospital for their coffee is Bangkok Phuket International.
