Given its gorgeous landscape and beautiful views of tropical locations, Thailand is one of the most popular destination sites for visitors from around the world. Bangkok, a densely populated and vibrant city, is the nation’s capital and offers many different options when it comes to choosing a villa. If you are traveling outside of Bangkok, there are also several options as well.
Before selecting a villa in Thailand, it is important to do some research before making your booking. First, it must be taken into consideration if you are traveling during the busy season or not. Prices and availability of villas can drastically change, depending on the season and if there are any special events happening while you are there.
Next, it is a good idea to find out if the villa allows for short-term or long-term stays only. In some instance, many villas will only allow guests that are staying for a minimum of seven days. In other situations, you may be limited to a certain number of days. If you need to make any modifications to the number of days that you need to stay, make sure that they have sufficient space for you during that time. If they are completely booked, you may need to secure a villa at a different location.
In order to maximize your success with the booking and to minimize hassle, you can also use a travel agent that is familiar with the various villas around Thailand. If you are not fluent in the local language, be certain to request a villa that has a multi-lingual staff that can assist you. Often times, booking agents, reservation specialists and office managers of hotels will be fluent in several languages, so this should put your mind at ease about any communication situations.
If you are traveling to a remote area of Thailand, you may need to plan carefully for your accommodation and transportation needs that will arise during your stay. First, make sure that the villa that you have booked has sufficient information on how to get from the airport (or whichever starting point you are at) to the villa. Road conditions and unexpected closures can add a considerable amount of time to the trip, so it is important to make sure that you secure an experienced driver that can navigate the often unpredictable conditions that make arise.
It may also be a good idea to have the contact information for other affordable luxurious villas in the area, in the event that you cannot make it to the villa that you booked or if you have an emergency situation and cannot travel to the villa. Having a Plan B in these situations can be extremely helpful and can save you a lot of headaches.
Once you arrive at the villa, be sure to do a thorough inspection of the villa that you will be in. Check that the level of cleanliness and comfort is up to your standards. If there are any problems, you should immediately contact the hotel manager so that you can fix the problem as quickly as possible.
Most staff members of villas in Thailand will respond to your needs with urgency and they are happy to serve you. The level of service should be exceptional during your stay and any problems that may arise should be immediately brought to the attention of the staff.
