The last three decades have seen Thailand’s tourism industry boom to the extent that it is now one of the most popular destinations on the globe for holidaymakers. Despite its long standing popularity with global travellers, the Land of Smiles continues to drive a cycle of reinvention that allows it to sustain its appeal to new generations of visitors.
Millions of guests arrive in Thailand each year to experience stunning natural scenery, authentic, mouth-watering cuisine, spectacular beaches and world renowned shopping facilities. Indeed, according to research by Trip Advisor, Thailand is topped only by New York as a shopping destination and recent years have also seen the country’s real estate market soar.
Thailand villa holidays are focused in coastal areas and on the idyllic islands situated in the south of the country. Popular islands like Phuket and Samui have attracted many villa developers, which now makes them top destinations for guests looking to rent a private holiday home. Lesser known islands like Koh Chang and Koh Kood are also now attracting visitors, while for local Thai people Hua Hin is a popular getaway as it is situated just a three hour drive from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok. The coastal resort city of Pattaya has also seen an increase in high end development and the city has improved its reputation among local and overseas investors. Again close proximity to Bangkok is a key attraction for Bangkok-based investors who make the most of weekend getaways to the coast. Pattaya is also only a short distance for those travelling from Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi International Airport.
The top destinations for luxury Thailand villas, are the tropical islands of Phuket and Koh Samui. To complement each island’s soft white beaches and twinkling turquoise waters, the luxury and quality of villas on offer for rent in these locations are second to none. Both destinations are also serviced by direct flight connections to cities across Asia, making them easily accessible to holiday-makers in search of a relaxing vacation.
Luxury villas on Phuket and Samui run the gamut from quaint two-bedroom bungalows to splendid ten-bedroom mansions with an extensive range of facilities, including a private gym, pool, movie theatre, expansive living areas, tennis courts, and sometimes even a private spa.
Staying in one of the many Thailand villas offer's guests a more exclusive experience, and many feature panoramic views of the lush surroundings and awe-inspiring ocean. What could be better than beginning your day by indulging in a breakfast of fresh Thai fruits on your villa’s private terrace? It certainly beats queuing up for a hotel breakfast buffet. Villas also offer the best of both worlds in terms of access to island amenities, with a high number being situated within easy reach of tourist towns and entertainment districts, but far enough away to offer an escape from the crowds.
