Time for the Family
â€œA Phuket villa guarantees quality time for the whole familyâ€
Many of Phuketâ€™s rental properties are within easy reach of the beach, which means children can enjoy hours of fun and games during the day. Most of phuketâ€™s private villas also have their own swimming pool, and because there are no other guests around kids can jump in water as much as they like. When the sun goes down, some villas also feature their own dedicated games room or mini cinema, and settling down to a movie after game of Monopoly can the perfect end to a perfect day on Phuket.
â€œThe perfect base for groups of friends to relax and socialiseâ€
Phuket has become a magnet for group holidays with a wide range of boutique retail options and upscale beach clubs increasingly drawing a jet set crowd. A private villa is the perfect base for friends who want to do a little shopping in the morning, before heading back to the villaâ€™s private swimming pool area in the afternoon to soak up some rays. Poolside outdoor dining areas are the perfect to share a delicious Thai meal and some drinks before a night out on the town. Many of Phuketâ€™s private holiday properties are also located within easy reach of popular resort areas, and the manager can call a taxi to get to nearby bars and clubs. Multiple bedrooms also means everyone has a comfortable place to sleep off the nigh-time fun.
â€œMany couples choose to host their wedding in a private villaâ€
Unlike hotels, private villas offer couples the luxury to design the schedule of their big day without any rigid restrictions on timetable. To beat the heat, many couples opt to begin the festivities with drinks and refreshments in the late afternoon. After this, a sunset ceremony on the beach adjoining the property offers a stunning backdrop for proceedings, which can be followed by a dazzling photo shoot. Once dusk has fallen, itâ€™s time to eat. While some couples prefer to have a formal sit-down meal within the cool interior of the private villa, others choose to put on a sumptuous seafood barbecue and buffet on the outdoor sun terrace so guests can enjoy the tranquil gardens as they eat. To round of the celebrations, a poolside disco always goes down a treat, followed by an impressive firework display on the beach.
â€œA villa is the perfect place to ignite the holiday romanceâ€
With no strangers around, a private villa on Phuket is perfect for couples that want to get away from the crowds. The facilities on offer at many of Phuketâ€™s private villas make it easy to dial up the romance once the sun sets. Cocktails by the poolside are often a good way to start a romantic evening, followed by a mouth-watering meal whipped up by the villaâ€™s private chef. If your villa has direct beach access, a moonlit stroll along the seashore is a pleasant way to wind down after a day in the sun. It is also possible to indulge in a couplesâ€™ massage by hiring the services of a personal masseuse through the villa manager.
