Phuket, the largest island in Thailand, shot to prominence as a major tourist destination. The main draw was the magnificent beaches. The growth in interest in sunlight and sand spurred the tourism sector and now Phuket boasts an impressive infrastructure complete with world class hotels, luxury Phuket villas dotting the beachfront, restaurants and some of the best nightlife choices available anywhere in Asia.
Phuket caters to the tourists who would like to break free from it all. As the stress of this competitive environment takes its toll, vacations are now increasingly becoming about relaxing and spending quality time with loved ones away from the eyes of the audiences. For many visitors, vacations are no longer about exploring new areas but reconnecting with themselves and as this new outlook gains centre stage, the hospitality sector also is reinventing itself to fulfil this requirement.
Travellers are drawn to the island because they can book their own Holiday houses, or private villa resort Phuket Thailand, that are more like professionally managed houses, so offer the best of both the worlds – the services and facilities of a hotel combined with the privacy, space and casual environs that only a home can provide. These leases are staffed with housekeepers and cook to look after the daily chores while others have concierge services to help with all activities such as booking tours and transfers.
Some of those luxury rentals also have attributes like private pool, Jacuzzi, Wi-Fi, and total entertainment systems and so instead of going out for entertainment and socializing, guests have everything they need within the comforts of their own environ.
Beachfront Phuket villas are especially popular since guests can actually wake up to the sound of the waves washing ashore and then proceed to spend the day soaking up the sun at the beach, taking a dip in the water or perhaps enjoy a picnic, making sand castle with the children. Those searching for something more passive could easily doze away the hours or read their favourite book from the balcony or terrace of the leasing when taking in the brilliant views of the sea and beyond.
There are several beaches in Phuket such as Patong beach, Karon Beach, Kata Beach, Kata Noi Beach. These beaches have a reasonable share of vacation villas. Patong beach is home to the island’s most happening nightlife and offers a selection of night clubs. Away from the holiday rentals, you can opt for eco-adventures in tropical forests or enjoy world-class diving in the Andaman Sea. From Phuket you could also go for a cruise around the mysterious Phang Nga bay.
