Phuket is planning a reopening to welcome back international tourists who are fully vaccinated from 1st July 2021.

But we need to see the finer details once we get closer to the opening date, specially for vaccinated travelers from India. Having said this, it is surely a positive sign towards a slow and gradual opening of destination Phuket, and I expect a full opening with least or no restrictions by Q4 2021.

Keep an eye on TAT’s official Newsroom with latest updates: NEWSROOM

I write this blog to introduce you the benefits of booking a Private Luxury Villa in Phuket, along with a list of most sort after Luxury Villa properties (from 3 bedroom going upto 10 bedroom to cater to all family sizes) in Phuket for your consideration and future planning.

The focus is Private Villas, rather than Hotels and Resorts, which Phuket has many. But for obvious reasons a Luxury Villa Holiday is the way to go as destination Phuket opens up to international travelers.

Why Book a Private Villa: The Benefits:

1. Privacy

Its exclusive use, just for your family or group of friends, so privacy comes naturally. The staff is handpicked, discreet and specially placed at the Villa just to serve your preferences and service demands.

2. Safety and hygiene

In the midst of a pandemic, one of the main concerns for travelers is the health of their family. Each Villa on the list below adheres to strict hygiene controls and cleaning procedures. The staff members are being vaccinated on priority and regularly tested. They have undergone extensive training and safety management measures have been executed across our portfolio. The health and wellbeing of our guests and our employees remain our top priority.

3. Exclusive use of facilities

Unlike in Resorts and Hotels you do not have to share communal facilities with strangers. When you book a Private Villa all facilities such as a private swimming pool, jacuzzi, air-conditioned gym, games room, or home cinema are for your group’s exclusive use. No need to adhere to a time slot to use the facilities. Maintenance and sanitation of the facilities is guaranteed and the Villa Manager can arrange for private trainers, yoga sessions or spa therapists on request.

4. Remote work

This is in case you prefer, you can check into a private villa for a long stay and you can continue working from home, surrounded by all the comforts of a luxurious stay. Many villas have a well-equipped study and all have high-speed WiFi so you can easily log in on office days. With plenty of places to spread out, kids can continue their remote schooling too. Take those conference calls, without having to change the background, your reality will be enviable as it is!

5. Personal service

Each Private Luxury Villa is typically staffed with a manager, butlers, housekeepers, gardeners and security personnel depending on the destination, and you can even have your own private chef. They work as a seamless team to create an extraordinarily luxurious villa vacation – just for you. Friendly yet professional, the staff members are managed by a Villa Manager and are trained to be discreet and efficient.

6. Kids are welcomed with open arms

Within the safe enclave of a private villa, you never have to worry about your kids wandering away or meeting strangers. Families are welcomed with open arms at these family friendly villas and with so many staff members ready to play with them, your children will never want to leave.

7. Luxury of Space

A villa booked exclusively for you is your own private property for the duration of your stay. Spread out and enjoy the space. Great for multi-generational families or a group of friends – there’s plenty of room for everyone, without anyone being in each other’s way.
