With a helpful attitude, multi-language skills, extensive local knowledge and solid hospitality training, villa managers can transform a great Thai holiday into an unforgettable one. Whether you are travelling as part of a family, as a couple or with a large group of friends, a private villa is the ideal place to stay in Thailand. Many of the rental properties on islands like Phuket and Koh Samui boast their own swimming pool, Jacuzzi, sun terrace and spectacular sea views. If the lavish surroundings and extensive facilities are not enough, the majority of properties also come with their own dedicated manager whose job it is to make sure you have the best holiday possible. From the moment you arrive at your destination, right up until the moment you leave, your villa manager can be relied upon to makes use all your needs are catered for and your holiday wished granted. Arrive in Style Champagne After a long haul flight to Thailand, followed by a connection to Phuket or Samui, the last thing you want to do is haggle over prices with a taxi driver. If this is the case, get in touch with your villa manager before you arrive so that he or she can arrange for a car to come and collect you from the airport, and transport you straight back to your private villa. Once you arrive, you can also arrange for the manager to have the fridge fully stocked with all the goodies you desire, whether that’s grocery essentials or cool cans of beer. Your villa manager can even arrange a chilled bottle of champagne to be popped on your arrival at the villa. Mealtime Marvels Cook It’s dinner time, and you are overwhelmed with the array of recommended restaurants online. There is no sense in gambling when you have an expert on hand to give you tips on which are the best menus on the island. Your villa manager will even arrange transportation to the restaurant of your choice, and make a reservation for you in advance. If you don’t feel like going out, the manager can easily arrange for the chef to cook up a storm in the villa’s own kitchen. Physical Treat Massage One of the highlights of any holiday in Thailand is the generous supply of quality massage and spa treatments on offer. Guests at a private villa don’t even have to step outside the property to enjoy the most relaxing of treatments. The villa manager will happily organize a therapist to come to the villa and pamper you. Some villas even have their own dedicated spa rooms, but if not, the outdoor pavilion overlooking the beach is always a nice spot to enjoy a massage accompanied by the sound of waves lapping at the shore. Sail Away Yacht Even if you purchased a guide book before visiting Thailand, the last thing you want to do is sit down and plough through pages of information before you can actually go anywhere or do anything. Make the most of the villa manager’s local expertise – he or she will be able to help you plan the very best excursions. The manager has contact with a local network of companies and businesses, so they will be able to organize everything from a shopping trip a private yacht charter. They will be able to recommend the very best shops and boutiques for shopaholics or the best choice for a day out on the golf course. Party On Yum If you are in the Land of Smiles for a celebration, then a private villa is certainly the right place to be staying. With a wealth of local knowledge, your villa manager will be able to put you in touch with all the key people to make your party sizzle, from caterers to the best DJs. They can even source friendly waiting staff to keep your guests happy with drinks and nibbles served all evening. Your villa manager will also act as a go-between with all of these different service providers to make sure you get exactly what you want.
