The quality of private villas has increased dramatically on Phuket in the last five to ten years. When the sector started to grow in the late 1990s and early 2000s, the industry was marred by poor construction and a lack of regulation in terms of construction and standards, which resulted in oftentimes hazardous developments of poor quality and lacking sustainability.
In recent years, the government has improved regulations, and the global financial crisis has narrowed the market just enough so that only good quality firms with a proven track record of successful developments have survived. As a result, the construction quality and general aesthetic beauty of private luxury villas on Phuket has improved significantly making them some of the most desirable island properties in the world.
The variety of luxury villas on offer ensures there is something for everyone on Phuket, and the facilities for every purpose. Whether you're on honeymoon, want to get married, or are even looking for a private villa for your next company outing, Phuket has something to offer. Some of the most luxurious examples boast a full range of facilities that includes a private pool, fitness room, a host of bedroom types with ensuites, entertainment rooms with private movie theatre and games, mini-golf, sauna, spa and tennis. Added services such as onsite staff and concierge service either come with the villa or can be purchased separately through the management company.
In terms of locations, Phuket is ideal for nature lovers. Some villas are perched high on hills overlooking for Indian Ocean or Pha Nga bay with its many limestone cliffs ascending dramatically out of the water, while others are located close to the beach or main tourist towna for easy access. No matter where you choose to stay, you can be sure to always be close to nature and enjoy the sunny weather that makes Phuket so popular. What's more, the villas are often designed to make the most out of the tropical environs with large outdoor spaces and open living areas cooled by gentle sea breezes.
Villas come in as many styles and designs as there are owners. However given the rich tradition of Thai art and the availability of indigenous materials such as bamboo and silk, many villas feature interiors inspired by traditional Thai houses, giving them an authenticity that is hard to find in more modern properties elsewhere in the world. Traditional design doesn't mean old-fashioned however, and villas are often equipped with the newest technology such as satellite TVs, wireless internet, CCTV and all the comforts of modern life.
