Sometimes it’s just not enough to have a gorgeous resort swimming pool or access to one of Phuket’s lovely beaches. Sometimes the pool is just too busy, and you need a little private space. Sometimes it’s just too many steps to the beach. Which is where Phuket’s luxury private pool villas solve everything.
Private pool villas give you and your family your own separate pool, totally secluded and just for you. Many private pool villas in Phuket are located in the top-end Phuket luxury resorts, but there are more economical options available – and during the low season you can get them at a much-reduced price. Here are just a few suggestions for the perfect Phuket pool villa. There’s plenty more – let us know your favorite!
