Phuket, Thailand has long been known for its natural beauty, rolling hills, white sand beaches, sweeping vistas and luxury holiday villas. It also has a lot to offer if one is looking for a luxurious villa vacation with their family or corporate team.
Experienced villa consultants from Villa Getaways share some things to do for an exciting & memorable phuket villa vacation.
Phuket Muay Thai Boxing:
The passionate sport of Thai boxing is called Muay Thai, a fighting style that involves every part of the body including elbows, forearms and knees. Muay Thai is Thailand’s national sport and is now gaining world renown as more and more international athletes flock to Thailand to learn this ancient martial art. If you don’t mind the violence, it’s well worth attending a Mauy Thai match for the drama, passion and traditional Thai cultural experience. Tip: Ask your villa manager for a personal recommendation on the best fight clubs and upcoming matches. A little local knowledge goes a long way.
Traditional Thai Massage:
Nothing beats Thai massage for a wonderfully blissful pampering experience performed by trained masseuses (generally all Thai massage therapists are women) in a soothing environment. Thai massage is usually performed without oil. The client will lie on a massage bed on the floor wearing comfortable, loose fitting clothing. The massage generally lasts two hours, during which the masseuse kneads and stretches the body, leaving you feeling totally relaxed. Tip: Villa staff can arrange for Thai massage and many other spa treatments to be performed in the comfort and privacy of your own holiday villa.
Phuket Market Experience:
To discover the real Phuket, try visiting one of the numerous local markets. Thai markets are a myriad of exotic sights, sounds and tastes. Along with piles of multicolored fruits and herbs and displays of tantalizing Thai food, don’t be surprised to find vendors selling crispy fried grasshoppers and worms! Dozens of markets take place in Phuket every day, rain or shine.
Thai Cooking Classes:
If you adore the fiery flavours of Thai food and you’d love to learn the secrets of preparing these delicious dishes, try a cooking course at one of Thailand’s traditional Thai Cooking Schools. A variety of courses offer options for beginners to experienced chefs and offer instruction in selecting ingredients, cooking techniques and achieving the perfect balance of flavours. Tip: Take advantage of the talented Thai chefs serving in your villa rental. Villa staff would be delighted to organise a personal cooking class where you can learn to prepare the very dishes you enjoyed at dinner.
