Luxury Holiday Homes Phuket
Phuket is a well-established destination for both short and long term visitors, most of whom are drawn to the island by its breathtaking beaches, warm ocean and a relatively affordable cost of living.
An increasing number of visitors are opting to purchase or rent luxury holiday homes on the island and choosing to spend extended lengths of time there. This not only gives visitors more time to explore local attractions, but also allows them a greater opportunity to explore the surrounding islands that pepper the stunning Andaman Sea. Island-hopping to destinations like Koh Phi Phi and trips to the mainland to places like Krabi and Phang Nga is especially popular.
Phuket’s Location Advantage
Dominated by lush green forested hills and fringed by spectacular beaches, Phuket’s stunning natural scenery is just one of the reasons why visitors flood back to the island every year. Popular areas for luxury holiday homes are Kata, Kamala, Surin and Bang Tao, all of which boast a choice of local and international restaurants, shops and entertainment venues. Indeed, Phuket’s reputation as a shopper’s paradise has grown significantly thanks to the selection of malls, designer boutiques and galleries no open across the island.
While Phuket attracts a variety of visitors, from young couples to families, it’s also extremely popular with retirees who enjoy Southern Thailand’s warm climate and myriad opportunities for outdoor living. Improving transport links and the high standard of health care offered by Phuket’s international hospitals also means residents and long term guests enjoy a very comfortable lifestyle in a safe, warm tropical environment.
Community Spirit on Phuket
Visitors have been making Phuket their home for years, and as a result, the island is well-developed in terms of clubs and societies that provide information and support for new arrivals. There is also a wealth of professional services available, including English speaking lawyers, international estate agents and a choice of English language media, including two local newspapers. There’s plenty of opportunity to network with like-minded people or meet up and make new friends. Whether it’s dinner at a local beachside restaurants or a yoga class, there are plenty of opportunities for residents and visitors to branch out to enjoy the social side of island life.
