Villa Abiente

Villa Abiente

Thailand » Phuket » Cape Yamu

Abiente is a superb holiday villa for active, modern couples and groups of friends, with its chic styling and setting on Phuket’s east coast, on the doorstep of the region’s best sites for yachting, kayaking and other outdoor adventures.  For those of us with less ambitious holiday plans, it’s also a fine place to do absolutely nothing but relax poolside and bask in the tropical sun!  The open-plan layout invited us to gather, relax and flit between the cool white interior and the pool with ease.  Each of the three bedrooms is similarly designed and furnished with king-sized beds and TVs, though only two enjoy a sea view and poolside setting – so there might have to be a coin-toss on arrival.  We were among the first to visit this newly built villa (mid-2017) and loved its bright and welcoming ambiance with a no-fuss minimalist edge and a few touches of whimsy here and there including a big mural splashed across the entry hall.  Abiente is among the newer villas in Baan Yamu, a decade-old estate with exceptional guest facilities available including a well-equipped gym, which we didn’t try out (lazy!), and the huge 75-metre pool, a good option for serious swimmers.

Avalon III

Avalon III

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

Staying at Avalon III exceeded all my expectations.  It is a small villa but has everything two people could ask for.  The exclusivity, privacy and location of this place make it my favourite one-bedroom villa in Canggu, and I would choose it again and again over any Bali five-star hotel with a front desk and fancy spa.  I recommend this villa to anyone, especially if you love the beach.

Who would have thought you could have your own little tropical beach house with a private pool for the price of a luxury hotel room?  We appreciated having air-conditioning in every room, and with glass doors looking onto the pool deck from the living room and bedroom, it still has a tropical jungle vibe, whether you are indoors or out by the pool.  Outside, there isn’t much of a yard, but there’s a table big enough for two to dine alfresco, and a set of wicker lounge chairs by the pool for sunning in total privacy.  At night, the pool lights up and you can gaze at the stars, so very easy to turn up the romance.

You can make your own meals, order groceries or room service, or get delivery from outside.  The villa staff were flexible and responsive to our requests.  We asked for maximum privacy, so they’d wait until we left to tidy everything brilliantly, and then they were always available outside the villa when we came back in the evening if we wanted anything.

Dea Villas - Villa Radha

Dea Villas - Villa Radha

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

There have been a few changes since we stayed at Villa Radha two and a half years ago, with the addition of two new villas to the enclave, a children’s playground, a gym and a spa. Staying at Villa Radha now means you have the choice of two spas on your doorstep. We decided, however, that we preferred the bygone era ambiance of the totally private wooden spa building within Villa Radha’s magical garden. Like the villa itself, the spa is another antique building so it is more in keeping with the overall character and charm. We noticed that with a total of five villas on the estate there is a now a little bit of hustle and bustle (and dare we say modernity) outside of Radha’s garden walls, but tucked away in our own private paradise – the gardens have grown and are even more beautiful than we remembered – we were able to completely relax and enjoy the wonderful service of the staff, and the great food. If you’re into sleek contemporary design the ethnic, rustic style of Villa Radha may not to be to your taste, but it is nevertheless immaculate and very comfortable, with all the trappings of the 21st century. There is no sitting room as such, but we enjoyed relaxing on the veranda, and were also very comfortable watching TV and movies in the air conditioned bedroom. As for the garden, well this is a landscaping triumph: forget any ideas of a modern Zen-like space, this garden will bewitch you with its tropical abundance of giant taro leaves, spiky pandanus, fan, parlour and travellers palms, bird’s nest ferns, heliconia, flowering frangipani, and rare fruit trees. It will make you wonder how it can be so full (almost to the point of being overgrown) and yet so meticulously maintained. At first we thought it was a little bit expensive for a one-bedroom villa, but when you consider the uniqueness of the property, the space, the facilities, the butler service, the pool, spa and gorgeous garden, you’ll probably agree that it’s extremely good value for money.

The Headland Villa 1

The Headland Villa 1

Thailand » Koh Samui » Taling Ngam

You'd be hard pressed to find a more romantic spot than The Headland Villas. The sunsets are unbelievable and the design definitely lends itself to love, with special touches like private bathroom terraces and sliding wooden shutters outside the bedrooms for added privacy. Even if you bring the kids or share with friends you can easily escape to your own space (upstairs in the TV room, for example while the kids are in the pool).

For those craving company and variety, being virtually inside the grounds of a luxury resort means the options for dining and entertainment are far more diverse than you would expect in such a secluded location. The cool, white decor and uncluttered interiors not only show off your sun tan, but also mean you don't worry too much about drifting between the pool, terrace and fridge in your beach gear. The staff keep a low profile and are 'on-call' rather than 'in-situ' for most of the time (although extra hands can be brought in, as needed, at extra cost), so you're left to do your thing in satisfied peace.

Being part of a small estate also gives you the option of hiring more than one of The Headland Villas for a family gathering or celebration. Once ensconced in your own villa, however, you neither see nor hear your neighbours unless you want to. It's quite rare, even on Samui, to find such modern comforts so close to unspoilt nature and traditional island life. The combination of the two makes for a memorable holiday indeed.

Since our initial visit three years ago, the Headland Villas have flourished and now blend even more naturally into their surroundings as the gardens have become more established. The properties have been well-maintained, with little evidence of wear-and-tear.

The Headland Villa 5

The Headland Villa 5

Thailand » Koh Samui » Taling Ngam

We felt that Headland Villa 5 was a perfect example of ‘indoor-outdoor living’ with its rooms opening up to the elements via stack-away doors and the entire building positioned to make the most of the cooling sea breeze. Outside, we appreciated the lush garden kept cool by the trees. We liked that the main living area opened on all four sides, with the outdoor covered dining area to the rear and the pool and views to the front. Tall windows let in the light, yet a covered overhang prevents the harsh sun from penetrating the house. During our stay, a storm suddenly came in from across the bay. The staff were quick to pack away outdoor cushions, and close up where needed. Retreating inside, we were able to watch the storm as it lashed the beach and boats, but we still had the feeling of openness due to the large windows. It’s as though the villa put on her rain jacket and went puddle-hopping. In under an hour the storm passed and she put her sundress back on again as we moved outside to make the most of Taling Ngam’s famous sunsets.

We spent a very pleasant hour or so sunset-watching – and later star-gazing – on the strategically positioned sun loungers in the sala. When we could tear our eyes from the ocean and glance in the opposite direction, we were rewarded with views of the jungle and coconut groves. Here the jungle truly does meet the sea.

Taling Ngam is known as the sunset coast, so it was a pleasant surprise to wake early and see the sunrise over jungle and hills to the other side before enjoying an alfresco breakfast of tropical fruits, cereals, yoghurts, toast and croissants. The sound of chirruping myna birds rather than traffic noise reminded us that we were far from the crowds of Samui’s northern and eastern shores; we felt as though we were visiting the island as it was a few decades ago – except now we had the luxury of electricity, internet and other mod-cons.

Villa Bulan Madu

Villa Bulan Madu

Indonesia » Bali » Jimbaran - Bukit » The Bukit

Villa Bulan Madu is a wonderfully romantic little villa.  The setting is very pleasant and, given how open the rooms are, very private. The villa shares the same owner, staff and kitchens as its neighbour, the five-bedroomed Villa Indah Manis, so has the benefit of a large staff who discreetly disappear next door until summoned. For us, the staff could not have been more helpful and the food we had was beautifully presented.

Lakshmi Villas - Solo

Lakshmi Villas - Solo

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

On our recent return visit to Villa Solo, with another three years of villa reviewing experience under our belts, we decided we should have scored it a little bit higher, so we’ve adjusted the numbers to reflect this. The nothing-is-too-much trouble butlers here have all been trained by Magnums – one of the top butler training schools in the world – and it shows. We were really impressed! Most villas of this size in Seminyak are self catering, so a personal butler on call 24/7, plus a menu of delicious food (prepared by a chef in the main service kitchen), is a treat indeed. Nothing has changed at the villa itself, it is still very private, and it still looks new because it has been immaculately maintained, along with the plants that line its walls. Villa Solo is ideal for a single person, a couple, or even a family of three, looking for something bigger and better than a hotel room. An extra bed can be provided for a child. It is also very good value for money. Don’t expect anything grand: Villa Solo is simple, stylish, modern, practical, immaculate and private.
