Even when you choose a private villa on a tropical island in Thailand as the preferred location to relax and recharge; it's still important to ease into your holiday headspace. First impressions last, so always try to make sure your arrival sets the scene for the indulgences to come.
For most of people, a holiday in Thailand offers the chance to step back from the stresses of our everyday routines and just relax.
For visitors spending their vacation in one of the Kingdom’s luxurious private holiday villas, the relaxing scene can be set from the second you arrive by arranging a few home comforts. That way, you and your family can look forward to a soothing start to the holiday after a long journey to reach your dream destination.
Below are some ways to ensure you wake up refreshed and ready for a fun filled vacation in your private tropical paradise.
Toast to Good Fortune
After a long haul flight to Phuket or Koh Samui, you are more than likely to be feeling a little travel-weary. What better way to get into the holiday spirit than with a glass of champagne when you arrive at your villa? Not only will a glass of bubbly taste wonderful after your long journey, but a toast is a also an appropriate way to celebrate the start of your vacation. If you are traveling with little ones, you can pre-arrange a few juices with your villa manager so they don’t miss out on the celebration.
A Welcome Snack
You’re likely to be feeling a bit peckish after a long journey, and if you’re not ready for a spicy Thai feast, then why not pre-order some delicious snacks on arrival? Your villa manager can arrange for you to arrive to a fridge full of delicious delicacies, as even the islands in Thailand now have all sorts of imported food available. Why not start with warm French brie on crackers, drizzled over with honey and served alongside a delicious helping of Parma ham? If you’re sweet tooth is craving its sugar fix, you can even have your villa manager to pick up some delicious pastries from the local patisserie.
If your hunger goes beyond a snack, you don't have to head out straight after arrival to a local restaurant. You can pre-arrange a meal to be prepared your villa chef who will whip up a mouth-watering feast of your choosing in the fully-equipped kitchen. Whether you are in the mood to kick start your holiday with a few spicy Thai dishes, or perhaps to indulge in the local catch of the day, just let your villa manager know your preferred choices via email in advance of your arrival.
Relax and Refresh
One of the drawbacks of a long haul flight is the aches and pains you might be feeling after sitting in the same position hours. If your muscles are feeling sore, than banish the pain with a massage on arrival at your villa. Whether you are in the mood for a relaxing oil massage or an invigorating traditional Thai massage, a therapist can come to your villa to pamper you with your choice of treatment. Follow up your massage with a dip and a long evening soak in your villa’s bath tub to make sure you wake up feeling refreshed and revitalised the following morning.
Out and About
Once you have settled into your private villa, kick start your holiday with a day of exploration. If you want to learn more about Thailand’s fascinating culture and history, have your villa manager put together an itinerary for you to see the local temples and historical sights. Alternatively, if you need a little more time to get into your holiday head space, you can sail off into the ocean to explore the country's marine attractions. You and your family can enjoy the delights of the underwater world on a day trip for Phuket or Koh Samui, as well as relishing the magnificent coastal scenery the islands have to offer.
