Phuket is home to a plethora of exquisite private pool villas with breathtaking ocean vistas. Travellers from all around the country and all around the globe make their way to the island for a tropical getaway. Although we’re grateful for the countless options, decision-making when it comes to picking a hotel or villa can be rather overwhelming.
Perhaps you still want to maintain some social distance, and yet you don’t want to miss out on the comforts and amenities of a hotel stay. Bringing the two together, these five-star Phuket hotels and resorts offer private villas that will tick all of these boxes.
