The benefits of a Phuket Villa

As Thailand has grown into one of the world’s premier vacation destinations, so too has Phuket, which is now globally famous as a major tourist destination and also home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

A relatively new phenomenon for visitors to the island is the availability private rental villas. These fabulous properties have quickly captured the imaginations of those in search of the ultimate island break an its now possible to find a huge variety of styles, sizes, and prices to match the budget and taste of almost any independent luxury traveller.

A Personal Touch

Visitors to Phuket (internal link) are also frequently enamoured by the legendary hospitality and warmth of the local people and many work as staff in private villas, taking care of guests during the stay. This personalisation adds to the holiday experience, and when combined with the exclusivity and luxury of a Phuket holiday home, makes for a unique and memorable island vacation.

"It's the people make a country special, and in Thailand, the people are naturally hospitable."

Privileged Luxury

The private villa market on Phuket is extensive and varied, with top class properties (internal link) on offer that compete with the best luxury hotels and resorts. International construction standards are applied, with state of the art design increasingly becoming part of the scene and special materials often imported from the mainland and beyond to build villas that are supremely stylish and extravagant inside and out.

Key benefits of a private holiday villa

  • Total privacy
  • Exclusive facilities
  • Onsite services
  • Stunning locations
  • Unique designs
  • Affordability

Although the most common image of a villa that usually comes to mind is a smaller house, perfect for couples looking for privacy and romance, many of Phuket's palatial villas come with up to 10 bedrooms and even boast staff quarters for the onsite team. These expansive properties are therefore also ideal for large gatherings, such as family reunions, weddings or corporate retreats.

Price benefits

Renting a large villa can actually come out cheaper than paying for numerous hotel rooms for the same amount of people, and will of course be a vastly more personal and private holiday experience. Most large villas have living, dining rooms and modern equipped kitchens, providing the perfect space for large groups to gather, eat and socialise. A personalised benefit that rarely exists, even in a large hotel, and one that also saves you money on food and beverage.

Design Standards

 "Given Phuket’s warm climate, many villas on the island also come with private pools, as well as high end appliances such as large plasma TVs in every room, home theatre systems, and private spa facilities."

 As far as design goes, villas on Phuket vary greatly. Traditional Thai wooden-style houses are still quite popular, but those looking for something a little more modern and stylish will also find a choice of options to match their tastes. Phuket is a famed location for that dream holiday, and staying in a private villa will certainly make the stay even more memorable. Absolute privacy, coupled with a wide variety of stunning designs and first class facilities make Phuket villas the perfect choice for couples, families and large groups alike.
