Why Book A Luxury Villa In Phuket
Selection of Incredible Phuket Villas
Thailand’s most renowned vacation destination, the island of Phuket is home to some of the world’s most spectacular luxury vacation villas for rent. Private beachfront beauties are discovered steps away from Phuket’s famed white-sand beaches, while chic, coastal cliffside villas promise dramatic panoramic views of Phuket’s breathtaking green landscape and magnificently blue sea.
Phuket luxury villas range from four-bedroom hideaway retreats to palatial ten-bedroom oases, often combining striking Thai design elements with a contemporary style to create glorious holiday villa rentals that are exquisitely unique. Impressive facilities and features include infinity pools with al fresco dining and lounge spaces, and often games rooms, private cinemas, and gyms, with some villas boasting tennis courts, lawns, and even in-villa spas.
Inspiring a wonderfully luxurious villa lifestyle, your stay comes complete with in-villa staff such as a personal butler, on hand to ensure you truly relax and your needs are seamlessly met. Meanwhile, private chefs create special dining experiences, while a concierge helps organize unforgettable experiences during your stay. You may want a private yoga session or a spa treatment too, which can also be arranged at your villa.
Where to Find the Best Villas in Phuket
Phuket’s west coast is a beautiful stretch of coastline, known as ‘Millionaire Mile’ because of its extraordinary villa properties. Here, green palm trees stand out against the cobalt blue skies, whilst the sparkling blue waters of the Andaman Sea lap at soft, white sands. Over on the east coast, you can find some of the island’s most exclusive vacation beauty spots too. Each area of Phuket offers something different, from tranquil settings to peaceful private villas close to island dining, shops, and nightlife.
Starting on the western side of Phuket, the idyllic areas of Natai, just north of the airport, and Nai Thon, just south, are within easy reach and are tranquil locations that are not as developed as some of the more popular Phuket hotspots. Moving down the coast, Bangtao, Layan, and Surin are idyllic locations that combine tourist appeal with laid-back luxury. Moving south, peaceful Kamala is in the heart of ‘Millionaire Mile’, yet still retains a relaxed air. Here, you feel close to the action yet still as if you are getting away from it all. Meanwhile, nearby Patong is Phuket’s ultimate hedonism destination, packed with tourist shops, bars, and restaurants that spill out onto the beach, with Kalim a quieter retreat just next door.
On the eastern side, Ao Po is where superyachts moor, so a must-stay if you are a yachtie, while Royal Phuket Marina is also all about ‘living the life’ with a glamorous waterfront vacation setting. Cape Yamu is its own little piece of paradise with an air of undiscovered beauty and some of the island’s finest restaurants and villa stays.
Phuket As A Destination
There are many picturesque beaches in Phuket to lounge on during glorious days of holiday sunshine. Pick the right beach and you can enjoy swimming, snorkeling, watersports, and even watching fire dancing shows, as well as dining on the sands.
In the north-west, Mai Khao Beach is renowned for being one of Phuket’s longest, at around nine kilometers, and welcomes sea turtles who lay their eggs here. Nai Thon Beach is part of Sirinath National Park and is a peaceful spot that is renowned as a snorkeling haven. Meanwhile, Bang Tao Beach is home to hipster beach clubs and is a popular sandy shore for families.
Surin Beach and Kamala Beach, going south, are ideal if you are looking for a chilled-out yet glamorous vibe. Meanwhile, Patong Beach is undoubtedly the party shore, with an upbeat energy day and night. Nearby Freedom Beach could be another world though and is a snorkeler’s paradise that can only be reached by long-tail boat in high season. Close to Kamala, Kata Noi Beach boasts a great dining scene, yet the actual sands are still quiet enough to relax. Nearby Karon Beach has more activities than most beaches and is a favorite with water-sport fans.
In the east, Ao Yon Beach has an old-style Thai-beach feel, while the nearby island of Naka Yai has plenty of pretty beaches. Other sandy spots include Koh Siray, Laem Ka, and the Maprao and Rang islands.
The sun always shines in tropical Thailand and Phuket promises blue skies most of the year, with temperatures rarely dropping below 25° Celsius. As will all Thai island destinations, Phuket has distinctly different seasons, with the climate dictating high and low tourist season too.
Without doubt, some of the finest days are between November and February, when it is fabulously warm without being too hot, with cool breezes and no rain. Going into March until at least May, Phuket experiences its hottest temperatures which, whilst still in the 30s, can feel hotter because of the humidity. Thankfully, air-con and oversized fans keep the heat at bay.
Beginning around the end of May and lasting through to October, the rains fall during the monsoon season. However, this can be a great time to visit as the cooling rains often only last for a short time or downpours come during the night, and the storms are fabulously dramatic too. With fewer tourists, this can be a relaxing time to visit.
Amazing Island Activities
Whilst you can experience a castaway beach vacation in Phuket and stay in a luxurious vacation villa, you can also enjoy lots of activities, adventures, and excursions too. Phuket has many attractions which makes it a go-to destination for families as well as groups of friends looking for the best experiential travel Thailand has to offer.
One of the most exhilarating day trips from Phuket is to head-out on a speedboat for an island-hopping expedition. Koh Khai and Racha Island are less than 20 minutes away, while you can also explore the divine Phang Nga Bay, Phi Phi Island, and Coral Island. For the best diving in Thailand, you can visit the Similan Islands during certain times of the year. Phuket is a yachting haven too, with regattas and events that are part of the international boating calendar. Sunset dinner cruises, PADI diving courses, snorkeling, and fishing as well as jet-skiing and kite-surfing, Phuket is a watersports oasis with a perfect climate for sailing.
Some of the best restaurants in Southeast Asia cook-up creative menus in Phuket and the island is a culinary destination where talented chefs create cuisine from all over the world. Dining is an experience, with achingly romantic tables, intimate al fresco dinners, and innovative menus too.
Visiting temples adds a rich, cultural layer to your beach break, with the 45-meter Big Buddha statue a must-visit as the sun sets with wide vistas over Phuket and out to the turquoise sea. Phuket Old Town boasts an evocative Sino-Portuguese heritage, with striking colonial-style architecture. Today, the historical shophouses are cafés, restaurants, and boutiques. There’s a great Sunday-night Walking Street market here too which many tourists flock to for local handicrafts and to sample the authentic taste of Thai food.
Waterpark fun, ziplining, and golf add to the long list of fun activities Phuket has to offer, and there is much to discover away from the island’s beaches too, exploring the island’s green, tropical jungle landscapes. Waiting up to yoga on the beach, taking a cooking class to learn traditional Thai recipes or inspiring wellbeing with massage therapy, Phuket is full of vacation riches.
