As tourism continues to rise in the country of Thailand, it is inevitable to see Phuket’s new development to accommodate the growing number of tourists. Phuket is said to be the birthplace in Asia of what is referred to as the modern villas. It was back in 1987 when the first villa was constructed by Amanpuri and then in 1994 it was followed by the Banyan Tree.
According to the managing director in a consulting firm based in Phuket, Bill Barnett, luxury is now the very definition of villas in Phuket. Take for example the Riviera Residence which can be found in the island. International guests who are planning to relax and spend money in luxury should be able to rely on developments such as this. If you are planning to visit the island soon, there are a number of other villas which you can consider.
The Anantara Phuket offers 83 units of pool villas that will make one think that they are in a Thai village from the south because of the traditional them. The landscape of the garden was designed by Bill Bensley who is also responsible for the landscaping of Mandarin Oriental, One & Only Resorts as well as Four Seasons. There is a lagoon within the garden that houses a group of ducks. The villas boast a private swimming pool that is 33 square meters in diameter.
Andara was built by Allan Zeman who is a business tycoon from Hong Kong. He built the pool villa with family and friends in mind. The spot of the villas is just across his home in the island of Phuket. He desired to share the experience of waking up at the most beautiful view with those who stay in the villas. The hotel has a mythical Thai history theme which is evident in the material decorations used such as maidaeng, teak and makha.
Amanpuri is the villa that started it all. Its location is very exclusive and it is home to high profile visitors. It is the reason why Phuket is now home to the best villas in the country including the investment-worthy and Phuket’s new development Riviera Residence.
