These days, staying in self catering accommodation should no longer result in a low standards of customer care, just as booking a plush hotel is not a cast iron guarantee of a superior holiday experience. Krabi boasts a good number of high quality villas that offer a first class service based on the principles of the ‘serviced villa’ concept. This innovative approach to self catering is in essence a hybrid of hotel and self catering style accommodation, offering the best of both worlds.

So, what exactly are the advantages of staying in a serviced villa? Here are five great reasons to try a Krabi villa instead of a hotel or resort this year – you will no doubt discover many more!

1) Private Facilities

One of the key advantages of a serviced villa, is that this type of accommodation offers guests a level of privacy that large hotels and resort simply cannot provide. Guests in a serviced villa are spoilt with a range of totally private facilities that include beautiful gardens, swimming pools and other luxurious amenities which allow an altogether more intimate holiday. Most serviced villas also benefit from a number of on-site security features such as perimeter walls and in-villa safes, so that added seclusion needn’t come at the expense of peace of mind.

2) Significant Costs Savings

A Krabi villa can be significantly cheaper than a hotel room of an equivalent standard, which is particularly true when travelling with a big group of friends or family. The use of a villa kitchen and barbecue makes dining at home or in the delightful villa grounds a pleasant option and also achieves dramatic savings by cutting out the need to frequent expensive restaurants. Entertainment is usually well taken care of too – the majority of Krabi villas feature extensive in house entertainment systems that make costly evenings out a thing of the past.

3) A Truly Tailor Made Service

‘Self catering’ is not really an accurate description of serviced villa accommodation – in actual fact, a reputable serviced villa typically promotes all the services that you would normally associate with a top class hotel such as daily maid cleaning, fresh linen or airport transfers and often much, much more! Many Krabi villas offer an additional selection of discreet services that afford a level of customer care almost unheard of in larger hotels and resorts. These can include an on-call, personal concierge, in-house chef, in-house massage and beauty treatments, unlimited transport in and around your Krabi resort and assistance with trip and excursion booking. The service can be tailor-made to your individual customer requirements, providing a unique holiday experience with as much or as little in the way of attention as required.

4) Stylish Accommodation in Desirable Locations

Serviced villas in Krabi not only showcase contemporary and traditional Thai architecture, these stunning homes are also specifically designed to cope with the tropical climate making your stay ultimately more comfortable. Krabi villas are routinely set in extensive grounds located in some of the most sought after areas, often just a stone’s throw from the nearest Krabi beach or town. Guests benefit from state-of-the-art kitchens, lavish bathrooms, generous bedrooms and ample living accommodation, in addition to all the mod cons necessary to make your stay infinitely more agreeable, such as air conditioning, satellite TV and free wifi.

5) A Chance to Experience Real Krabi

Many villas are situated in genuine neighbourhoods – this enables guests to sample authentic Krabi life and ultimately enjoy a more memorable holiday. Shopping in the bustling markets for exotic fruit and vegetables to stock up your villa fridge is not only fun, it also puts you in direct contact with the locals. This provides a true insight into the Thai way of life, something which you cannot hope to experience from within the grounds of a fancy hotel that caters solely for foreigners.
