Whatever Suits You
“All the advantages of a hotel or resort, but with added exclusivity”
What could be more blissful than the glow of the afternoon sun on your skin as you sip on a refreshing glass of coconut water by the pool? Unfortunately, at a hotel, such a fantasy of an exotic holiday in Thailand may be accompanied by water splashes from dive bombing children and a ten-minute wait at the pool bar. While these scenarios are quite likely in one of Phuket’s busy resorts, guests that stay within the exclusive surroundings of a private villa do not face such daily annoyances. Private holiday properties are especially ideal for families that want the space to spread out without worrying about making too much noise for other guests, or newlyweds that want to enjoy their honeymoon in peace. If you don’t mind a little extra company, many of Phuket’s large private villas are ideal to share with family and friends.
“The amenities rival those available in the island’s best hotels”
When you rent out a holiday villa, there are certain facilities you naturally expect such as a spacious communal living area, comfortable bedrooms, kitchen and maybe even an outdoor dining area. Phuket’s private villas come with so much more. If you are a fan of relaxing movie nights, why not rent a villa that has its own mini cinema theatre? A selection of Phuket’s villas even have their own private gym, sauna and dedicated games room. For guests that like to stay fit, a private outdoor swimming pool nestled in an exquisitely manicured garden is a must. Some of the villas available to holiday-makers even come with their own private tennis courts.
“Your villa’s dedicated team of staff is there to make sure your holiday is as relaxing as possible”
The professional staff that come with many of Phuket’s private villas provide the icing on the cake in terms of making your holiday the most luxurious, enjoyable experience possible. Essentially, villa staff are there to do all the heavy lifting so you can focus on your holiday relaxing. No one wants to spend their precious pool-lounging hours pouring over a well-thumbed travel guide, attempting to plan itineraries and reserve excursion tickets. Guests staying at one of Thailand’s private villas can make use of their villa manager’s expertise and ask for assistance in planning their holiday itinerary. The villa manager can also organise the perfect day in by drawing on the services of a personal chef or masseuse for guests to enjoy.
“Phuket boasts a range of remarkable villa locations”
Many visitors remember the sensuality of their first experience in Thailand. With the fresh scent of the sea breeze, the gentle sound of the surf and the glistening turquoise water in view, it would be hard to forget how well Thailand ticks all the holiday boxes. Those staying in one of Phuket’s beachside or ocean view villas can enjoy this array of sensual treats around the clock. With watersports activities and shopping options within walking distance, there will always be something to do. If you prefer the rich, earthy scent of tropical forest and the distant echo of exotic birdsong, maybe a villa perched atop a jungle covered hillside is better? Either way, you can find it all on Phuket.
