A Different Types Of Accommodation Choices In Phuket

Jan 22, 2008
The largest island in Thailand, Phuket is South-East Asia's one of the most charming destinations, situated in the sparkling waters of the Andaman Sea. Located about 850 kilometers south of Bangkok by air and just an hour's flying from Bangkok, Phuket boasts of a stunning landscape comprising awe-inspiring scenery, blue seas, stretches of white sandy beaches, and beautiful sunsets.

Hence, it is not a wonder why Phuket is sometimes referred to as 'the Pearl of the Andaman.' When comes to attractions, Phuket presents a feast of attractions for visitors touring the destination, such as, Phuket Aquarium, with some rare species of fishes; Phuket Butterfly Farm, boasting of a vivid range of butterflies and other insects; Phuket Zoo, where monkey, elephant and crocodile shows are conducted; wats including Wat Chalong, Wat Kun Chi and Phuket Town Shrine; and Thalang National Museum, containing some unique art and artifacts.

However, despite this amazing range of attractions, many of the tourists come here due to its gorgeous beaches including Patong Beach, Kata - Karon Beach, Kamala Beach, and Bang Tao Beach, just few to name. Each of these beaches has its own significance, and is considered a mecca for enjoying water sport activities, such as swimming, deep sea fishing, paragliding, sailing, and much more. Whether you are beach bums, art or nature lovers, bird or wild life lovers, devotees, or honeymooners or newly weds, Phuket, in deed, has everything for a relaxing and memorable vacation.

It is estimated that millions of tourists, especially westerners, visit here per year. Hence, in order to cater to the growing needs of tourists, Phuket has an astounding range of accommodation choices, depending upon the preferences and interests of tourists. For instance, if you are a tourist who has come here for short stay, then some of the best choices are hotels and resorts. If you are budget conscious, you can opt for such options as boutique and bungalow resorts attached with all necessary facilities like swimming pool and recreational features, apart from inexpensive accommodations.

For beach lovers, some excellent beach resorts are available in destinations, many of which are just few meters away from some of the most popular beaches in the area. Mostly, they are complete with luxuriously appointed rooms, Thai style gardens, lush gardens, swimming pools, most modern spa facilities, and golf courses.

Al though hotels and resorts make available all that is required to make your vacation enjoyable, it may sometimes does not appeal a vacationer seeking more space, privacy, and freedom. For such vacationers, no other options would be better than private villas. They are also an excellent choice for holidaymakers who are here for a long stay. In contrast to a hotel or resort room whose average size is only of about 40 square meters, a villa may be usually in the form of house with size varying from 100 to 900 square meters.

From single studio and apartment style villas to five or six room villas, you can choose from a variety of astounding villas in Phuket. Some of the most sophisticated villas in Phuket come with three or more bedrooms, kitchen designed in European style and equipped with dishwasher and microwave oven, separate dining and living areas, excellent entertainment facilities coupled with satellite TV and CD and DVDs, and hi-speed internet connections.

Additionally, mostly they are complete with facilities such as indoor as well as outdoor Jacuzzis, barbeque areas, and private swimming pools. There are also some villa rentals, offering the services of maids, cooks, chauffeurs, and baby sitters. Above all, as in the case of beach resorts, many of the villa rentals are within close proximity to some of the top beaches in the area.

Let it be any type of accommodation choice or providers, majority of them provide superb arrangements in order to help you indulge in a variety of activities in the destination. For example, some providers organize canoe trips to explore the Phang Nga Bay caves. Likewise, special river rafting trips are organized for adventurous. Many of them also provide excellent facilities to enjoy such activities as elephant trekking, touring wildlife centers, and jungle walking. Further, for weary travelers seeking rejuvenation and relaxation, some of them offer superb spa services covering body massages, herbal treatments, mud baths, and beauty treatments.

A myriad of professional villa service providers are now there to provide you the best services in connection with Phuket villa rentals. Many of them even offer options to allow for a hassle-free booking online.
