Looking at the well kept conditions of Banyan Tree Phuket Double Pool Villas (DPV), it's no wonder I thought that it's spanking new. Launched in 2006 but now marketed as a luxury boutique establishment within the 3 properties of Banyan Tree Phuket, it is catered for guests looking for exclusivity and refined luxury.
The luxury starts the minute you arrive at Phuket Airport, where a staff will meet you upon arrival and whisk you through the fast track lane and into the waiting car. It's nothing new but it's a perk that is included as part of the package for the DPV guests. Luxury is about the little details.
There are only 24 villas in this premier enclave that has its own private resort entrance and lobby. The one bedroom DPV is approximately 1,300sqm in size, which is substantially bigger than the other Banyan Tree villas that are approximately 170-380sqm.
Here's a look at my "home" for the next few days.
At the DPV, guests will have their own villa host who is on call 24 hours a day... it's just a speed dial away on the Nokia mobile phone that they provide. How thoughtful is that?
I am loving this place and have decided that I should come back every year. It ain't difficult since it's only an hour plus plane ride away to this paradise.
