The last day of 2013 started peacefully for Izabel Goulart, looking out over the Kamata Bay from the Naka Phuket Hotel in Phuket, Thailand. She was to spend a quiet day on the beach, topping up her tan before the evenings’ festivities began. As the sun began to set, it was time for a dip with friends Rodrigo Costa, Daniel Urzedo, Marcelo Costa and Michelle Lima, pictured diving into the pool in unison in the Instagram photograph above. With Beauty Stylist Rodrigo Costa on hand to help with hair and makeup, Izabel climbed into the beautiful white Mermaid dress, specially created for her by Lolitta of São Paulo just three days before leaving for her vacation.
To mark the close of 2013, the party moved to the beach resort of Amanpuri with its beautiful hanging flower garlands and lanterns, to meet up with more friends to join in with the celebrations. As the evening progressed, Izabel and others released traditional Thai sky lanterns with a prayer asking for their wishes to be fulfilled in the belief that misfortune would fly away.
Finally, as midnight approached, Izabel abandoned the Mermaid dress, and in true mermaid style, slipped into the waters of the Andaman Sea to watch the firework display signifying the start of 2014.
Izabel Goulart began her day in leisurely style by relaxing beside the pool at the Naka Phuket Hotel, with beauty stylist friend, Rodrigo Costa. Following a brief stroll around the grounds, she joined other friends for some paddle boarding and a toast on the beach of Phuket’s Amanpuri resort (bottom, left to right, Creative Director at Bluebird Shoes, Michelle Lima; boyfriend Marcelo Costa; Designer, Daniel Urzedo and Beauty Stylist, Rodrigo Costa).

Today, Izabel Goulart awoke in her ocean view room at the Naka Phuket Hotel, feeling in a happy mood. She and her party of friends are about to embark upon a kayak adventure, exploring the Phang Nga bay islands of Panak with its limestone caves, stalagmites and stalactites, and Ko Tapu or James Bond Island (made famous as the set for the James Bond movie “The Man with the Golden Gun”). “I’m amazed by the beauty of this island and the kindness of the Thai people”, she said. The day was rounded off with dinner at the Amanpuri beach resort, accompanied by traditional Thai music, before returning to the Naka Phuket Hotel for a restful night’s sleep.
Izabel Goulart and her party of friends moved north today along the coast of Phuket Island, Thailand, to the beach resort of Amanpuri (place of peace) for a day of fun in the sun. “Vacation mode is ON!”, said Izabel as she enjoyed the warm waters and stunning views across the Andaman Sea.
