With 280 million international visitor arrivals expected in 2017, Asia is a fast-growing region for tourism, but unlike places such as Spain, Tuscany or the Caribbean, it’s not as well known for luxury villa rentals. This is changing, however, with a growing number of superb villas available in some of Asia’s hottest destinations including Bali, Sri Lanka, Phuket and Samui island.
Savvy travellers, especially those travelling in groups or extended families, are beginning to discover that the right villa can offer the customised care and service impossible to find in a hotel…often at more attractive prices.
Staying in a luxury villa means enjoying the ease of waking up to find your favourite breakfast ready at the poolside dining table, prepared by your own chef and service staff. No buffet line-ups. No vying for the attention of busy waiters.
Only in a private villa will you have the chance to share the spectacular sea views with only your loved ones, and have a swimming pool for your exclusive use. No battles for poolside sunbeds. No strangers to watch out for as you swim your daily lengths.
Within the privacy of your own villa, easily and efficiently plan your holiday activities together with the in-villa manager with expert local knowledge, dedicated to your needs alone. And possibly have a chauffeur standing by all day to whisk you away to the beach, the spa, a romantic restaurant, a scenic viewpoint.
Entertaining in a holiday villa is a breeze, with not only a team of support staff at hand, but full kitchens, formal dining rooms, spacious terraces and top-notch media choices -- some villas even have plush private cinemas. From an intimate cocktail evening to a grand wedding, villa rentals provide the perfect backdrop for a memorable experience.
Holiday villas allow you to roam and relax freely – relish the comfort to be yourself whether in the privacy of your bedroom or in the villa’s shared gathering spaces. Unlike the rigid layouts and furnishings of hotels, villas offer more flexibility and comfort for families and travellers of all ages. Kids will love escaping to their own fun-filled twin- or bunk-bedded room while their parents may enjoy some quiet, restorative moments in their luxurious master suite.
Freedom, comfort, privacy and a highly customised level of service have made luxury villa rentals a more enticing choice for travellers seeking to discover the best of Asia.
