Private Villas vs Hotels – A Savvy Traveller’s Choice

December 11, 2015 Hotel News No Comments Email Email

With 263 million visitor arrivals in 2014, Asia is one of the fastest growing markets for tourism. At the same time, the person-to-person accommodation booking site Airbnb has seen meteoric growth, with millions of travellers now choosing to stay in private homes rather than hotels.

Research has shown, however, that despite having more opportunities to book Airbnb-style places, most still prefer full service accommodation while on holiday.

For this growing number of savvy, discerning travellers seeking a home away from home yet five-star hospitality, Heaven Rentals is proud to have curated a collection of 400 luxury villas in the most beautiful beach and island locations of Thailand, Indonesia and Sri Lanka.

Based in Phuket, Heaven Rentals selects the finest villas from Phuket, Koh Samui, Koh Kood, Bali, Lombok, Nusa Lembongnan and Sri Lanka’s South Coast that offer guests unequalled service standards in utmost privacy and peace.

Are private villa rentals only for the super-rich and royal? Definitely not. Groups and families especially will discover that the right villa can offer more attractive prices with the customised care and service impossible to find in a hotel.

Your villa, your choice. Imagine waking up to find your favourite breakfast ready at the poolside dining table, prepared by your own chef and service staff. No buffet line-ups. No vying for the attention of busy waiters.

Imagine sharing a spectacular sea view with only your loved ones while swimming in your villa’s private pool. No battles for poolside sunbeds. No strangers to pass by as you swim your daily lengths.

Imagine planning your holiday activities together with an in-house manager with expert local knowledge, dedicated to your needs alone. And a chauffeur standing by all day to whisk you away to the beach, the spa, a romantic restaurant, a scenic viewpoint. No pushy tour agents. No taxi fare negotiations or hassles.

Easy entertaining In a private villa entertaining is a breeze, with not only a team of support staff at hand, but full kitchens, formal dining rooms, spacious terraces and top-notch media choices — some villas even with plush private cinemas. From an intimate cocktail evening to a grand wedding, villas provide the perfect backdrop for a memorable experience.

Freedom to move Holiday villas allow you to roam and relax freely – relish the comfort to be yourself whether in the privacy of your bedroom or in the villa’s shared gathering spaces. Unlike the rigid layouts and furnishings of hotels, villas offer more flexibility and comfort for families and travellers of all ages. Kids will love escaping to their own funfilled twin- or bunk-bedded room while their parents may enjoy some quiet, restorative moments in their luxurious master suite.
