As Southeast Asia’s island destinations become more accessible, with direct flights from key destinations in the region, more people are travelling to enjoy island treasures like Phuket, Koh Samui and Bali. This trend has also fuelled a property boom on many of the region’s islands, as owners and rental guests search for ever more luxurious and exclusive accommodation.
“Increasing demand for luxury means more private villas are being built in Southeast Asia’s island destinations.”
Many of the properties constructed on tropical islands serve a dual purpose. They provide a holiday home for owners who plan to use their luxury island villa for several months of the year. In addition, many property owners on islands like Phuket, Koh Samui and Bali rent their villas out to holidaymakers when they are not in residence.
Holiday of a Lifetime
Private villas can be enjoyed by a variety of individual and groups. Families, groups of friends, or even business associates can all take pleasure in the benefits provided by a private property for rent. Many couples in search of the ultimate romantic destination for their wedding also now choose to hire out a private villa to create a more bespoke celebration than a hotel would be able to offer. Villas are extremely versatile and the range of styles, configurations and locations on after mean the perfect property can usually be found to suit the needs of guests exactly.
A Personal Touch
Many private villas on islands like Bali, Phuket and Koh Samui have their own dedicated team of staff who are able to assist guests for the duration of their stay, making sure they enjoy the entire villa experience as much as possible. The best management companies train their staff to remain discreet but available so as not to disturb guests wishing to relax in peace.
“Staff help guests organise trips and outings to enjoy the surroundings and make the most of the destination.”
In addition to cleaning staff, the villa’s personal concierge can help guests organise hire cars and a range of daytrips on the island. Furthermore, the villa staff are able to make sure guests arrive to a fully stocked fridge, so they can chill out and relax after a long plane journey. In many private villas, it is also possible to organise the services of a personal chef who is able to whip up splendid three-course meals for guests who don’t feel like venturing out to one of the local restaurants.
A place to crash
In addition to the advantages offered by the dedicated staff at many of Southeast Asia’s luxury private villas, the range of facilities on offer make these properties the perfect place to relax in absolute privileged privacy.
Many luxury villas comprise the following amenities:
• Private swimming pool
• Tropical gardens and outdoor dining spaces
• Spacious and elegantly decorated living areas
• State of the art entertainment systems
Such a lavish range of personalised facilities makes a private villa very difficult to leave, even on a day trip. For those guests that do manage to explore the location, a villa is always the perfect place to head back to after a day out. You can on a DVD, open a bottle of wine and drift onto your own private space just as you would at your own home without distractions.
"No other form of accommodation can match the freedom and comfort of a luxury villa"
What could be better after a hot day of soaking in the sights than a refreshing moonlit dip in your villa’s private pool? The combination of a private facilities and the freedom to enjoy them at will is what makes a private villa stay such an appealing option, whether for a holiday, celebration or business gathering.
