A stay in a private pool villa under 5,000 baht may seem like a pipe dream, but it is possible. The list of advantages seems entirely too good to be true: a luxurious setting, similar in size and scope to a high-end hotel suite, but with way more privacy, better and more complete amenities and, most importantly of all, your own swimming pool? All of that, and in a place as famously beautiful as Phuket? Believe it or not, yes!
A private pool villa is an extremely cost-effective option for families and groups of friends visiting Phuket. It provides an ideal enclosed environment, which is significantly more luxurious than you would get by spending an similar amount on two or three rooms in a mid-range hotel. In addition, you might have to pay a little extra if you wanted adjoining rooms in a hotel, but a villa will keep your group together, making it a lot easier to enjoy yourselves together. You will also get your own kitchen, living room, sun deck and, most importantly, your own pool.
