Phuket Villa Rental
Phuket Thailand City Page Guide
If you are looking for the perfect holiday location with sun, sea and sand then you have hit the jackpot with Phuket. Not only is this exquisite island destination filled with all the regular tourist highlights, it also has exclusive locations for the most discerning traveller.
Phuket is one of the gems of Thailand, being the largest island in the country and host to over ten million visitors a year. But if you don’t want to be swamped by the crowd in stacked hotels, then we have just the solution – Phuket Villa Rentals.
Best Rental Villas in Phuket
Crowds are great, but they are not for everyone. When you go on vacation to Phuket, you can either lounge in a hotel with a hundred other guests, all diving in the same pool, or you can rent a villa with your very own private pool.
Jump out of the pool and enjoy a massage with your partner and lounge in your dress robes on your private balcony, while enjoying gourmet meals and wine. What more do you need? But alas, there is so much more on offer.
Expect nothing less from Phuket’s leading villas spread across the coastlines such as Trisara, NAKA Phuket and The Shore. These villas each come with their individual pros, and the only con is you can’t stay here forever. Trisara is great for families, as they have many kids’ activities, while no kids are allowed at The Shore.
All of your basic amenities come provided, such as fine dining with exquisite Thai cuisine and fresh sea food, full-treatment spas, proximity to shopping districts and peace and quiet.
There are also great penthouses and condominiums that can be rented via Airbnb. The amenities may not quite be the same, but the accommodations are other-worldly and nearer to local attractions.
Top Local Attractions
The highlight of Phuket is undoubtedly the wide selection of beautiful, white sand beaches. Patong Beach is the most developed and most popular. Surrounding the beach is a buzzing city centre with bars, restaurants, theatres and souvenir shops. The only drawback is it can get congested.
For more serenity, you can sail to one of the 32 smaller islands surrounding Phuket, including James Bond Island. No visit to Phuket would be complete without a visit to the island featured in the Bond classic – The Man with the Golden Gun. You could join the regular cruise ships, or you could rent your own private yacht and travel in style.
When it comes to cultural and religious heritage sites, there are many to choose from, but none more important than Phuket’s Big Buddha. The 45-metre-tall statue of Buddha is one of the most dazzling sites you’ll find in the city. Located on top of the Nakkerd Hills, the white marble covered edifice is hard to miss. Other temples with gem-covered statues are located across the city, but they have strict dress codes, so make sure you inquire before you visit.
For history buffs, make sure you stop by at Phuket Philatelic Museum. The home of Phuket’s first post office was turned into a museum and it hosts stunning local artwork. For the animal enthusiasts, you can enjoy an elephant ride at Phuket Zoo, or pop by the aquarium.
Another top-draw for marine lovers is Similan Islands. The clear, turquoise waters make it a great place to snorkel. For another truly unique experience, try kayaking through the limestone caves of Phang Nga Bay. After all, it is nice to get a bit of shade on this hot island, and no place better than beneath a cascade of glistening stones.
When it comes to sports and leisure, the Laguna Phuket Golf Club is unmatched in all of Thailand, and some would even say in all of Asia. The 18 hole, par 71 course in Laguna Phuket Resort is an immaculate green haven for the golf enthusiast and novice alike. Rub shoulders with some of Thailand’s best golfers and enjoy beautiful scenery while you are at it.
If hiking is more your speed, then take a walk through Khao Phra Taew National Park. It is one of two national parks on the island, but it does not get as many tourists as the more popular Sirinat National Park. A great place to stretch your limbs, cuddle up under a tree and spot some local harmless wildlife like deer and monkeys.
for a truly remarkable site, take a trip to Promthep Cape just before sunset and watch the sun fade into the sea by Rawai Beach. This place alone, is responsible for many of the tourists in Phuket. It might be a bit crowded, but it is worth it.
Wining and Dining in Phuket
People all over the world love Thai cuisine, but you haven’t really tasted it until you make a trip to Thailand, and there is no place better to experience the length and breadth of it than Phuket. Thai food has one of the most varied dishes on the planet, with more options and food combinations than you can possibly ever experience.
Yet, despite the varied indigenous options, Phuket still manages to include the best intercontinental dishes, with specialty French, Italian and Chinese restaurants across the city.
Phuket caters to every culinary need and budget, right from those with an affinity for local foods served on the boardwalks of the bustling metropolitan area, to those with a penchant for the finer things in life. You will be spoilt for choice with the Michelin quality restaurants.
If you fancy upscale Italian cuisine, then book a table at the very romantic La Gritta Restaurant, located at Patong Bay. Get your fill of Wagyu beef, salmon Rossini with foie gras and tasty lamb chops imported from Australia.
Would you prefer something more indigenous perhaps? Silk Restaurant & Bar at Andara Resorts & Villas has a nice blend of Thai and Western cuisine. Their food is so good, many people sign up for cooking classes. For gourmet French cuisine, Boathouse on Kata Beach is a great option.
If you would rather not leave the comfort of your villa to enjoy gastronomic delights, then you might want to stay at Iniala Beach House. Esenzi restaurant is an award-winning, seafood-oriented masterpiece and the service is also first-rate.
