All over the world, the trend in buying and renting holiday property has been on the rise in recent years. The growth of the villa rental market, in particular, means luxury residences have become the hot commodity for real estate agents operating in the world's top holiday destinations.
Thailand is one of the world’s leading nations in terms of the size of its tourist market, and has been at the forefront of this new trend with private villas sprouting up in many of its top holiday destinations and even in some urban ones as well.
In Phuket, for example, private luxury villas have become a fast favourite. Visitors from around the world love the personal space that a villa affords, and enjoy the impeccable service that often comes with staying at a managed property. Others just love the quiet, natural benefits: the view, the quietness away from traffic and major roads, the unique feel and aesthetic appeal of the properties. Whatever it is that an individual loves in a villa, there is just something about them that takes an average holiday and makes it truly unforgettable.
Phuket has been attracting tourists for years to its white sand beaches, lush blue waters, and beautiful marine landscape. When coupling these charms with world-class villas, the appeal only grows stronger. In other parts of Thailand, villas are also becoming more and more important in the real estate world. Although they may seem out of the price range of many, villas in Thailand are actually quite affordable. This is mainly due to price differences in land and labour, not because developers are cutting corners. New projects in Thailand are built to international standards by reputable contractors, who put in the time and effort to ensure every property is safe and finished to the highest standard possible.
Even with lower prices, luxury villas in Thailand still come with all the amenities one would expect of such opulent properties. Private pools and villas are commonplace, as are home entertainment systems, state of the art security systems, professional kitchens and more. Other advantages, such as private concierge services or a car and driver can usually be arranged beforehand or sometimes come included in the price of a villa rental.
For holidaymakers, villas are the perfect choice for a stay of one or two weeks. For owners, rentals also present the opportunity to make a decent return on their investment, especially during high occupancy periods around Christmas and New Year that make up the peak tourist season for Thailand. The tourist market in Thailand is very stable, and has even withstood seemingly difficult events such as the global economic slowdown extremely well. For those looking to buy property this makes Thailand a safe investment in addition to simply being a great place to own a property. Whatever one is looking for, buying or simply staying in a luxury villa in Thailand is sure to be a remarkable experience, whether the highlights are fantastic amenities, total privacy, or simply the delightful weather and culture of Southeast Asia's celebrated kingdom.
