The worldwide reputation and popularity of Thailand as a tourist destination has grown considerably in the last decade and one of the biggest beneficiaries of this global attention has been Phuket. The island is today one of the most popular tourist destinations in the region, and home to a wide variety of services and accommodation options to cater to the many international arrivals that keep the airport busy year round.

Versatile Phuket

The most luxurious and therefore highly-sought after of the island's many accommodation options are its private Phuket villas, which offer guests an oasis of seclusion and luxury and the ideal place to totally relax. A villa is the perfect choice for accommodation no matter what you plan to do on Phuket. For couples that choose the island for a honeymoon, a villa provides the private space for true romance. For visitors on family vacations, villas also offer extra space for children and plenty of things to keep them occupied.

"The island's villas offer excellent value for money, so they also allow couples to have a highly luxurious experience without breaking the bank."

Sand, sun and seduction Phuket is well known for its accessible stretches of soft sand, and each beach boasts a unique character and style that sets it apart from the others. The most developed tourist beach is Patong, which is home to a large number of high-rise hotels and condominiums. Patong also has some of the island's best shopping and dining options, including gourmet restaurants run by chefs from all over the world. Other beaches offer a much more natural experience, with more isolated coves allowing visitors to experience nature or glimpse into what Phuket was like in years gone by. Some of the most popular beaches include:

  • Patong
  • Kata
  • Karon
  • Surin
  • Kamala
  • Mai Khao

Timing is everything

The warm climate on Phuket means it offers perfect conditions to go to the beach and enjoy the region's stunning marine environment just about all year long. Even during the rainy season, most days will not see more than a few hours or so of precipitation, and during the low season months prices for luxury accommodation also drop considerably. The island's infrastructure makes it easy and fast to get around and the international airport offers inexpensive direct flights not only to and from Bangkok, but also to other major cities throughout the region as well.

"Phuket deserves its reputation as an incredible island destination and the best way to fully experience its natural beauty is to stay in luxurious accommodation such as a private villa."

With a large number of Phuket villas available in a variety of exotic locations it's easy to find something to match your taste, budget and holiday expectations, which is why many international visitors return to the island and stay in its villas again and again.
