A Fabulous Location
“Phuket villas are located in a choice of locations across the island”
Phuket, Thailand’s largest island is home to a whole host of private villas in a range of picturesque yet convenient locations. Families or couples seeking a little extra privacy often prefer to rent a property nestled in the hills and surrounded by tropical jungle, which covers much of the island’s interior. Such lofty locations offer spectacular ocean views, and a fresh breeze to keep guests cool all day long. Alternatively, visitors that want to be a little closer to the action may choose to rent a holiday apartment close to one of the island’s major tourist centres, such as Kamala or Kata beach where the shops, restaurants and bars are all closeby.
Designed for Comfort
“Phuket offers villas to suit a wide range of needs”
Whatever the size of your group, Phuket boasts a villa in the perfect location, with the perfect layout to suit guest’s personal holiday requirements. Families or groups that need to accommodate a large number of people often opt to rent a property with twin or bunk rooms, the latter perfect for older children. Alternatively, honeymooners and young couples chose more modest and romantic beachside suites to make the most of the stunning ocean views. Additional facilities add to the pleasure, such as a Jacuzzi and private swimming pool. Phuket also boasts a range of villas that are set up as “party pads” with sophisticated sound systems, poolside bars and barbecue units
A Touch of Tradition
“In terms of interior style, Phuket villas have it all”
Visitors that wish to truly immerse themselves in Thai culture often prefer to rent a villa with Thai design accents. Some guests even rent a fully traditional, wooden Thai style villa, built on stilts a few metres above the ground. Most guests prefer to stay somewhere with a few more modern creature comforts, but they can still enjoy a stylish Thai décor theme at many of Phuket’s villas. Colourful silk accessories and traditional wooden carvings certainly add a sense of the exotic location. Alternatively, visitors that prefer an ultra modern style of décor can go for one of Phuket’s contemporary villas which often feature striking, minimalist designs and the latest fittings and technology.
“Phuket’s private villa facilities rival the island’s most luxurious hotels”
With the fantastic facilities available in many of Phuket’s private holiday properties, it is a wonder that guests are ever able to prize themselves away from their havens of comfort and relaxation to explore the island. Inside, most of Phuket’s private villas offer ample living space, including multiple bedrooms, a top of the line kitchen and excellent sound and entertainment systems throughout. Some of the island’s most luxurious properties even feature their own private gym and sauna. The properties are just as luxurious once you step outdoors, and usually set in flowering tropical gardens with covered outdoor dining areas and a generous private swimming pool.
“A dedicated team of staff makes sure guests enjoy the best holiday possible”
The best villas on Phuket come with their own staff led by a villa manager who is also a fountain of local knowledge for guests. The manager is able to provide recommendations for the best restaurants and attractions on the island, as well as making reservations and booking transportation. Guests that want to indulge in a more private holiday experience can even organise the services of a personal chef or masseuse through the villa manager. Meanwhile the villa’s maintenance team, which usually includes cleaning staff and a gardener, is responsible for making sure the property is kept clean and pristine. In larger villas, members of the staff team often live on the property full-time.
