With an inviting swimming pool as its centerpiece, Phuket’s The Iris Pool Villa is a stunner. The two-bedroom house is spacious and airy, with lots of open communal areas for lounging and relaxing, soft lighting and handsome, darkwood furniture. A kitchenette means you can get stuck into some cooking, while a massive tub introduces another welcome, although hardly necessary, aquatic wallowing option. A location in the island’s far south means you’re only a short taxi ride from some excellent, lesser-visited beaches.
