Phuket - Jesinta and Buddy


Jesinta and Buddy (a famous Australian couple) took a trip to Thailand to celebrate their first wedding anniversary recently. One of the hotels that they chose to stay in was us at Cape Panwa Hotel - where they shared cocktails round the pool, took photographs from the balcony and enjoyed themselves on the beach.
