Phuket is a luxurious tropical beachside destination and is one of the most visited places in Thailand for its various wonders. For one, they may be touristy, but apart from Patong Beach, they have really stunning and well-maintained beaches.
We would like to think of Phuket as a destination for a quiet, self-pampering and luxurious retreat – where we’d do nothing but laze in our villas, enjoy every sunrise, take a dip in our private pool, treat ourselves to a spa session, indulge in good meals, and take a stroll by the sea of blues.
Imagine doing all these in mansion-sized villas; waking up to a breathtaking ocean view is not a just a dream in Phuket. Because Phuket is home to some of the best villas in the world. Here is our take on the 12 Luxurious Villas in Phuket That You Must Stay At Before You Die.
Aleenta Villa is one of the more popular choices in Phuket. The deluxe beachfront resort sits on Phang Nga, and is a contemporary luxurious accommodation with free wifi throughout the villa.
The luxurious Pool Villas are to die for; spacious and equipped with an outdoor terrace, a private pool and inviting sun deck. The Pool villa is also within walking distance to the beach.
