For those of you who saw my photos and posts about my holiday off the coast of Phuket, you will know that the holiday was amazing and so was my accommodation.
I booked my accommodation on luxury escapes, which is a website I watch very closely for deals as they have predominantly 4 and 5 star holiday bundles for up to 70% off the recommended retail price. Most of these bundles include some meals, drinks, airport transfers and usually spa treatments, and if you’re really savvy you can find an all inclusive one. I purchased an all inclusive package at The Village Resort, Coconut Island, which is a private island off the coast of Phuket. The resort is on its own island that is reached by water taxi (it takes 5 minutes) and included in my deal was unlimited water taxi rides to and from Phuket, airport transfers, 7 nights in a 5 star jacuzzi suite for 2, unlimited food and drinks including alcoholic beverages at either of the two restaurants or by the pool side or beach side, and 2 spa treatments. This package was for 2 people and was $1998 – what a deal! The staff were incredible and they really encouraged us to eat and drink as much as we liked – even though it was coming out of their budget!
So with these deals, and most of the deal on luxury escapes, the only additional thing you have to buy is your flights! But when you purchase these accommodation deals, you get a voucher and you have a year to book your holiday so you don’t have to worry about flights or getting time off work just yet, and when you’re ready you can look around for the cheapest flights and then enquire with the resort if they can accommodate you for those dates.
Recently Luxury Escapes have also been branching out into offering tours and even offering some packages that include flights – so they’re expanding their market and trying to offer something for everyone.
