Phuket, in southern Thailand, has a reputation for lavish, luxurious, holidays, thanks to its year-round glorious weather, white sandy beaches and warm blue seas, and not failing to mention, extremely economical prices. Luxurious Western and Asian-style villas are available to rent throughout the island, which is linked to the mainland of Thailand by a single causeway. The only real problem is choosing which one!
The rich, famous and just determined jetsetters have made Phuket their home. In less than thirty years Phuket has developed from a backpackers’ hangout to one of the foremost tourist destinations in the world. No expense has been spared. The luxurious facilities and exceptional service are incomparable. Many luxurious villas for rent in Phuket come with their own staff, and sometimes even their own private beaches.
The main beaches are situated along the west coast of Phuket and that is where the most sumptuous villas are too. Phuket’s name originates from the Malay word for hill, given to the cascading hillsides that run all along the coast by passing fishermen.
Luxury villa developers have taken full advantage of that geographical gift to give every luxurious rental property jaw-dropping views of the deep blue Andaman sea and the outlying islands. Patong, Karon and Kata are the most renowned beaches and Luxury Villa Phuket have a wide choice of luxurious villas for holidaymakers to choose from in those tourist centres, as well as further afield.
In high season more than a million people are in Phuket at any one time and demand for luxury villas is at its peak. But even when island life is booming, the daily pace is chilled and relaxed in any one of the dozens of superb properties available to rent from Luxury Villas Phuket. Toes in the sand, drink in hand; Phuket is Asia’s dream location for luxury villa holidays.
