Island hopping doesn’t get much more luxurious than this
Review of Luxury Yacht Experience by Laura McWhinnie from This Island Life
Technically not a villa, this yacht (Villa 4559) is also available to rent through Villa Getaways. The 76-foot yacht features four cabins that accommodate eight guests for overnight cruises, or 20 guests for a day cruise.
We had one good weather day during our stay on Phuket, which luckily coincided with our yacht experience. With an epic villa waiting back on the mainland for us, we chose the day cruise option. So on a rare sunny morning in Phuket, we joined the crew from Andaman Cruises and headed out to the limestone islands of Phang Nga Bay. If that wasn’t exciting enough, it turns out that this is the exact same yacht that Brangelina (R.I.P) took out last Christmas Day while they were in Thailand.
The water wasn’t clear enough that day to snorkel, so we made the most of the little inflatable boat that the crew attached to a small speedboat to whip us around in, turning the Andaman Sea into our very own water theme park.
The best thing about working up an appetite on a yacht is that the ocean is your smorgasbord.
When it was time for lunch, our crew headed out in their speedboat to buy fresh prawns from a nearby fishing boat. They then cooked them up on the grill and served them to us with fresh lime and chilli. As simple as it was, that casual seafood lunch was one of the best meals we had during our stay in Phuket.
Island hopping doesn’t get much more luxurious than this – so grab your crew and spend a day or a few nights out on one of Villa Getaways’ spectacular yachts.
