In the last few years, the number of villas on offer to guests in Thailand has risen dramatically. Most hotels and resorts tend to be located close to the more popular beaches or cities, while private residences are often situated in quiet, often hidden areas, surrounded by nature. Even on popular tourist islands like Phuket and Koh Samui, private villa accommodation is often found some distance from the main tourist centres, but good road access means rental clients can enjoy seclusion and privacy with easy access to the full range of facilities and amenities on offer in the area.
Whether an extravagant mansion or a secluded retreat, Thailand's private villas now offer something to suit every taste and preference. Couples planning a romantic getaway have a choice of locations and designs, as well as a range of onsite services to complement their escape. For a family reunion or wedding, renting a secluded private villa is also an extremely comfortable and cost effective alternative to booking multiple rooms in a hotel. A vast choice of designs and facilities can be found all over the country, from seaview palaces on Phuket or hidden retreats in Koh Samui's southern bays, to traditional Thai style wooden residences in the hills around Chiang Mai.
Phuket has long been known as one of the world's top holiday destinations, so the choice of villas there is now vast. Many of the best properties are squirreled away on private compounds in the hills and feature stand alone homes that offer guests absolute privacy with a team of staff on hand that includes chefs, villa managers and cleaning staff, allowing guests to simply relax and forget the world outside. Koh Samui offers equally appealing secluded villas, and also boasts the highest number of beachside properties in Thailand. Even with several villas standing adjacent to one another on the beach, the feeling privacy and peace is hard to match elsewhere in the world. Larger groups can also choose to rent several villas for the ultimate private family or group holiday.
Although most people's vision of paradise is a deserted island or countryside idyll, undisturbed by the tourist crowds. In reality, most private villa guests also seek a certain amount of comfort, service and luxury. Thailand's many private villas generally manage to combine all these elements to offer the best of all worlds. A remote location can also offer easy access to essential amenities. What's more, with a full service approach offered by professional agencies like Phuket Samui Villas and Homes, guests can relax in cosseted privacy while also indulging in a range of modern comforts that generally includes fine cuisine, contemporary technology, access to water sports and recreation, even in villa spa treatments.
Thailand's rich traditions, combined with a strong western influence in terms of design and architecture also means that even the most secluded residences are often as sophisticated as a modern city home. Private swimming pools, imported furnishings and kitchen equipment, contemporary works of art and specialist lighting and security systems all add to ease of the stay. Even when removed from the crowds, staying at a private villa in Thailand can be an incredibly indulgent and extravagant holiday experience.
