From the first moment that you step into one of Thailand’s luxury private villas, you know you’re staying somewhere special. The design, décor, facilities, views and smiles on the faces of the staff immediately make you feel “at home” in your stunning holiday residence.
One of the best things about staying in a private villa in Thailand is the fabulous few moments when you first arrive at the property with the indulgences ahead laid out before you.
From the welcoming smiles of the staff, to the initial wow factor of the property’s aesthetics and visual appeal, there’s plenty to make your first impression a memorable one.
Your villa agency and the staff onsite understand that a welcoming ambience and relaxing atmosphere will help you settle into the holiday mood even quicker.
Below are some of the main reasons why so many of Thailand’s finest private villas make such a powerful first impression with guests.
After a long journey from the airport, or perhaps a boat journey from another island, there’s nothing that will make you happier to arrive at your villa than the warm welcoming smiles of the dedicated team of staff. Your villa manager will let the team know what time to expect you, so they’ll be able to head outside as soon as you arrive to help with baggage. Unlike a hotel, they’ll be expecting you – and only you. Being greeted by name before you’ve even checked-in adds an extra personal flourish
Drink it in
If you’re feeling a bit parched after your journey, and fancy something a little more tasty than the bottle of water you grabbed on the way, you won’t have to wait long before a tasty beverage is served by your villa staff. Often, a delicious “welcome drink” comes in the form of an iced mocktail made from fresh Thai fruits. However, if you have any other preferences, you can simply let your villa manager know in advance, then you could be looking forward to a chilled glass of Prosecco or a bottle of your favourite beer on arrival.
Refresh & Relax
If you’re feeling hot when you first arrive at the villa, then breathe easy in the knowledge that your villa’s staff will have prepared a refreshing chilled towel for you to freshen up with as soon as you arrive. The presentation is second to none at a private villa, and your towel will often be infused with gorgeous herbal fragrances that will revitalise your senses and leave you feeling ready for the indulgences ahead.
Wealth of Wonders
If the warm welcome and tasty beverage haven’t already won you over, then an initial tour of the villa will certainly do the job. From the stunning architectural design – whether that’s traditional Thai flourishes or eye-catching modern elements – to the gorgeous ocean views, there’s so much to feast your eyes on that you won’t know where to look next. Every sofa with plumped up silk cushions will beckon, and the vivid turquoise blue of your very own pool is sure to entice.
Make Yourself at Home
Once your villa tour is complete, then it’s time to head to your bedroom and settle in. Thanks to the villa staff, you’ll find your luggage already there, ready and waiting. There will also be fresh towels laid out on the bed so you can take a refreshing shower and there are often fresh Thai flower arrangements on the bed for extra wow factor. If you fancy an early night after a long journey, you can ask one of the villa staff to turn down the bed in advance of your arrival so you can slip straight into bed for a blissful sleep then wake up to you private paradise.
