High Tourist Arrivals In Phuket Even During The Low Season

If you want a second home where you can settle in, relax and enjoy the spectacular view, your best option is private pools villa Phuket that is perfect for a group of friends or family. The generous living spaces will allow you to enjoy a vacation without being confined to a private room. Gatherings and socializing are allowed at the private areas of the resort.

Last year, Phuket hit historic high arrivals of 8.4 million due to the strong low season and the double-digit growth in the number of Chinese tourists. According to C9 Hotelworks “Phuket Hotel Market Update” report, the island is becoming a year-long tourist destination. Passenger arrivals averaged at 641,863 per month during the low season compared to 759,703 arrivals during the high season. The gap between the low season and high season is very close.

According to Bill Barnett, managing director of C9 Hotelworks, hoteliers around the island must be pragmatic about the shift in geographic segments. Phuket International Airport is in effect the point of entry for tourists to Khao Lak. There are almost 9,000 hotels that can provide accommodations to the growing number of visitors.

Both the cheap accommodations and classy beachfront properties gained the benefits from the increasing number of Australian and Chinese tourists. On the other hand, while arrivals are growing in number, the average length of stay is reduced because of the regional Asian market take-up. Moreover, Airbnb is becoming a mainstream competitor to hotels and resorts.

Barnett further warned hoteliers that while the recent upgrades on the Phuket International Airport and the new terminal are welcome news to the hospitality industry, it is does not really solve the real macro issue. The need to diversify Phang Nga’s improving tourist market urgently requires a new airport.

If have not yet booked for accommodations at private pools villa Phuket because you are worried about the cost, don’t despair because it is cheaper than luxury hotels. You gain more value from a spacious villa than booking for several hotel rooms. Services available at luxury hotels like maid service, housekeeping, concierge and 24-hour room service can also be enjoyed at the pool villas.
