How to Enjoy a Staycation in Phuket

Planning an enjoyable and perfect vacation without leaving your vacation villa? That’s possible! If you’re staying in a resort near a beach in Thailand, below are some tips on how to make the most out of your staycation:

Wake up early

The best way to enjoy your vacation is to start early. You can experience a different kind of serenity and silence in the morning, especially when you get to witness the sunrise and hear the birds sing. Mornings in vacation villas are different from the mornings you usually witness, so try your best to see and feel them. Starting the day early means you get to enjoy a full day, and you have more time to spend on your vacation. 

Stretch your body

Start your day with a morning stretch. Kick start your energy level by keeping your body active and getting it ready for the day. If you are a person who needs a full-body workout before you can function well, you can hit the gym or enjoy the sea view while playing tennis with your family or friends. It is a great activity and time to sweat and prep your body for a full day of relaxation and fun.

Have a wonderful meal

Enjoying a hearty breakfast can uplift your mood, especially when it’s a healthy meal with a freshly squeezed juice served by the villa’s private chef. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and having a healthy meal in a beautiful place can make you happier and can boost your productivity level.

Have time for relaxation

Remind yourself that you’re in the villa to relax and enjoy, so take this opportunity to calm down and de-stress. There’s no need to rush and accomplish a vacation to-do list or checklist. It is your time to unwind, so take a nice swim or read a book by the pool. Do any activity that will make you feel happy.

In case you’re in for some learning, some villas have planned activities for their guests. In Diamond Cliff, for example, we have a Thai cooking class, aroma gel candle making, fruit carving, cocktail making, and even pizza decorating class for the kids. These are great group activities that will allow you to meet and mingle with other people.

Have a delightful lunch

By lunchtime, you can try the famous and authentic Thai cuisine while experiencing traditional Thai dining at Thai Orchid Restaurant. It’s Diamond Cliff’s way of letting you explore the culture and transporting you back to the past without living the present.

Take a rest in the afternoon

By siesta time, you can choose to stay in the comfort of your relaxing villa and give yourself a good rest. After an hour or two, you’ll wake up feeling refreshed again and re-energized for the rest of the night.

Take a walk

When the heat is no longer hurting your skin, you can take this chance to have a relaxing walk by the beach. Feel the sand in your toes and smell the breeze by the ocean. Nothing beats experiencing nature while waiting for the sunset.

Dine with an ocean view

For dinner, we recommend you have a sumptuous meal while watching the view of the Andaman Sea. This is made possible in Diamond Cliff’s Ocean View Restaurant. It’s a contemporary tropical vibe restaurant that is also next to the hotel pool. You can enjoy the good food and vibe of the pool and ocean at night.

Get a spa treatment

Finish the day with a spa treatment. Have a facial, a body massage, a foot spa, or any treatment your body needs to recover from the whole day of activities. This relaxing activity in the hotel’s sanctuary will surely prepare you for a night of good sleep.


You can always experience and enjoy a perfect villa staycation. All you need to do is find the perfect place that will give you everything you need to have a relaxing and memorable stay.
