Elite Havens, the leading provider of high-end vacation rentals in Asia and a subsidiary of Dusit International, one of Thailand’s leading hotel and property development companies, has seen the quality of its offerings celebrated in a new Netflix reality series, The World’s Most Amazing Vacation Rentals.
The show, which premiered on 18 June 2021 and is now available for viewing to more than 208 million subscribers worldwide, sees hosts Mr Luis D. Ortiz (Million Dollar Listing), Ms Megan Batoon, and Ms Jo Franco (travel content creators) showcase remarkable properties around the globe and the life-changing experiences they have to offer.
A large portion of the first episode is devoted to NoKu Beach House, a sublime beachfront getaway in Seminyak, Bali, which is managed as part of Elite Havens’ hand-picked portfolio of close to 300 fully staffed private luxury havens throughout Asia.
Created by award-winning, internationally acclaimed interior designer Alex Zabotto-Bentley, and surrounded by an immaculate tropical garden, the private six-bedroom residence boasts a beach-facing plunge pool, a tennis court, and an outdoor cinema and spa. Guests also benefit from a full fleet of professional in-villa staff, including personal butlers, massage therapists, and a private chef who prepares customised gourmet meals.
“NoKu Beach House serves as a wonderful showcase of the Elite Havens experience and the bespoke services our distinctive properties have to offer,” said Ms Maya Rigg, CEO, Elite Havens.
“We are delighted this stunning villa has been featured in Netlix’s exciting new show – especially as host Luis D Ortiz, who spends his life around luxury properties, described it as ‘luxury at its best.’ In the post COVID-19 world, luxury villas provide the perfect secluded and safe hideaway for travellers seeking a highly personalised holiday experience.”
“And as the first episode of The World’s Most Amazing Vacation Rentals highlights, Elite Havens has everything in place to exceed guest expectations with bespoke services, stunning locations, and unrivalled local insight.”
Established in 1998, Elite Havens performs integrated marketing, reservations, concierge and management services for luxury villas across Indonesia, India, Japan, the Maldives, Sri Lanka and Thailand.
Dusit International acquired the company in 2018 as part of its three-pronged strategy for balance, diversification, and expansion. This strategy includes providing broadened experiences for customers beyond Dusit’s traditional hotel brand line up in the midscale through to luxury segments.
In Dusit’s home base of Thailand, Elite Havens offers a wide range of secluded and luxury villas on the paradise islands of Phuket and Koh Samui. From three-bedroom residences in prime beachside locations, to a 20-bedroom mansion set within a sprawling garden, each property promises to offer unfaltering service standards; professional, highly trained villa staff; and the personalised services of the Elite Concierge.
Group CEO, Dusit International, Ms Suphajee Suthumpun said, “Leveraging our rich experience in operating full-service hotels for more than 70 years, Elite Havens gives travellers a unique opportunity to stay in some incredible private residences while enjoying the same gracious hospitality for which our legacy brands are renowned.”
“With stunning locations and incredible designs, Elite Havens’ spacious properties are ideal for groups of friends and families seeking highly customised, secluded vacations at exceptional value for money.”
“Thanks to Elite Havens’ unrivalled community links, they promise to offer unique journeys of self-discovery too. Netflix’s new show highlights the distinct appeal of this fast-growing segment of the lodging spectrum, and we are delighted that Elite Havens’ offerings have been named among the world’s best.”
