Aleenta Resort: Phuket Phang NgaVilla or Hotel Resort?
Which is best for you?

Luxury villa resorts offer a different experience from luxury hotel resorts.  Villas offer more privacy and a "get away from it all" type environment, while a hotel resort will offer first class facilities but they will all be in common areas.  A villa will offer you a private pool and grounds and often have private exercise facilities.  The resort hotels will offer these same amenities to all their guests, but typically with a wider selection.

Trisara Resort: PhuketWhat makes a villa or hotel resort better for you?

A luxury villa resort may be better for you if you travel with a large family.  Even the most expensive villas may cost less than taking a wing of a resort hotel with family and friends.  A villa may also be better for you if you highly value your family's privacy and security.  Personal service is also emphasized with staff to guest ratios as high as 4:1.  A personal cook, butler, full time maids, chauffer, au-pair and other services are readily available.

A luxury hotel resort may be better for you if you value an active resort experience.  A variety of quality restaurants will be on offer, large expansive pools with special features such as slides and children's pools.   Organized sport activities will be offered along with training.  Kid's clubs will offer you a chance to get away from the young ones for a while. 

Specialized spa services, yoga, Pilates, cooking, and other classes are common fare at both types of resorts.  While some of these activities and services will be on offer at a villa resort -they may be offered less frequently or in a more narrow range due to the smaller demand. 

Either way - you win.  Both offer you ways to tailor your experience to your unique needs.
