Private Holiday Pleasures
“A Phuket villa boasts excellent facilities to hand”
Many visitors travel to Thailand to enjoy its balmy climate, and one of the best places to enjoy an afternoon lounging in peace and comforts the sun is by the side of a private infinity pool in one of Phuket’s holiday properties. Unlike hotels, the daily routine of guests staying in a private villa is not dictated by the opening times as it would be in a hotel. While hotel guests may be required to dash to the pool to claim a sun-lounger, villa guests can enjoy a leisurely breakfast before strolling out to the pool area to relax in a lounger of their choice. The range of other private facilities on offer includes everything from a personal gym to a cinema room for the ultimate exclusive retreat.
“Dedicated staff provide services that help guests personalise their stay”
Most private villas come with a team of staff that includes a manager, housekeeping and maintenance team. Guests looking for more luxury can also hire the services of a personal chef or even a private masseuse. The villa chef can prepare culinary delights to order – either Thai or Western dishes – in the villa’s kitchen. This is a particular treat if guests don’t feel like venturing out, or if they are sharing with friends and prefer their own company to that of strangers. After a long day of sightseeing and shopping, indulging in a relaxing massage is one of the best ways to soothe aching muscles. In fact hiring a personal masseuse has become particularly popular with female groups of friends having spa parties or hen night celebrations. All in all, guests staying in one of Phuket’s private villas have the luxury of receiving truly personalised service that is perfectly tailored to the kind of holiday they enjoy.
