Celebrity Holidays in Thailand
Thailand has certainly long since shaken off its image of being a destination just for backpackers and travellers. Many luxury hotel brands have been investing in Thailand and for several years now we’ve been listing exclusive and luxurious villas across Koh Samui, Phuket, Koh Phangan and Krabi.
We’re not the only one’s who have fallen in love with Thailand. It’s been visited by several A-listers wanting to hideaway and soak up the beautiful surroundings with a hammock and a sundowner. Thailand Villas are perfect private boltholes for the rich and famous.
