An Island Oasis
Islands like Phuket and Samui are favoured by visitors as idyllic clusters of paradise
Thailand’s private villa market is centred on charming island hotspots like Phuket and Koh Samui, although villa rentals in other parts of the Kingdom are rapidly gaining popularity. On Phuket, the majority of private luxury villas are concentrated on the western side of the island where they benefit from proximity to the island's many entertainment choices, with a wide choice of restaurants, bars and beaches found in the area. Visitors in search of quieter destinations outside Patong, Kata and Surin will find that many of Phuket’s outlying beaches have a collection of stunning holiday properties to offer.
Koh Samui is home to an impressive array of luxurious holiday villas
Situated in the balmy waters of the Gulf of Thailand, the collection of private holiday properties on Koh Samui are more than a match for those available on Phuket. Indeed, many of the villas found on Samui rival the island’s top resorts in terms of the facilities and personal service on offer. The most popular areas around the island include the long Chaweng beach strip on the east coast and the charm of northern Bophut and Maenam, where impressive villas are dotted along the coast or in the hills overlooking the sea. On the islands western coast, destinations like Lipa Noi and Taling Ngam are home to charming clusters of eateries and resorts, in addition to a number of impressive private villas. Other advantages of Samui’s west coast includes stunning views of the Gulf’s Ang Thong National Marine Park, and a more secluded, serene feeling for guests.
The Villa Advantage
Renting out a private villa is often a more economical option than booking out several hotel rooms
The extra freedom afforded by villa accommodation is one of the main reasons they are rapidly gaining popularity as one of Thailand’s most luxurious accommodation choices. If more than one couple, a family or a group of people are travelling together, it makes sense to rent a villa rather than paying full rate for several hotel rooms. What is more, the added exclusivity and privacy of a private holiday rental also makes it. Many of Thailand’s private holiday rentals are more than a match for the Kingdom’s five-star resorts when it comes to the specialist services on offer. Guests residing in a private villa can often make use of private chefs, drivers and even concierge specialists. With all that personal service available, guests have the chance to make their Thailand vacation the holiday of a lifetime.
Nothing less than Perfection
With the right rental agency, finding the holiday villa to suit your needs is a breeze
Finding the perfect villa in a market as big as Thailand can prove challenging and take some of the joy away from holidaying. However, agencies like Luxury Villas and Homes provide a smooth service for holiday-makers by providing online pre-booking services to make the process selecting the perfect villa an enjoyable one. Reputable companies can also assess each group’s requirements to offer handy tips for selecting the perfect villa, whether the property will be used for a lavish birthday celebration or the ultimate romantic getaway. Management companies such as Luxury Villas and Homes also boast a large portfolio of the best villas in the region, complemented by the personal service that comes with the collection, making for a one-stop choice when planning the perfect holiday.
