4-bedroom Villas

If your kids pine for a room of their own then our four bedroom villas could suit your family well. Four bedroom villas will also appeal to groups of friends and handfuls of couples looking for more facilities and that little bit of extra space. They'll often come with one twin bedded room, giving even more flexibility.

Illuketia

Illuketia

Sri Lanka » South Coast » Inland Galle

We thought Illuketia was a charming villa in a delightfully peaceful, rural location. The house has a fabulous colonial design, is airy and spacious and filled with an interesting collection of art and antiques. The wraparound veranda is a great feature and perfect for informal dining, especially as each side offers a different view of the garden. The four double suites are cosy and well-presented however a couple of the bathrooms are a little dated and Waterlily’s (Bedroom 4) intimate size is better suited to children or just one adult.

The villa staff were quiet but efficient. They swept the house and lawns every morning, assembled huge arrangements of flowers and served up well-presented meals of Sri Lankan and eastern cuisine (they can do western cuisine too). On our most recent visit we spied aubergines, gourds, chillies and other fresh produce neatly planted in rows in the organic garden. It’s lovely to know you’re eating fresh produce from the estate (and be able to go see it growing!). This, combined with the villa’s efforts at water recycling and their use of solar power, makes Illuketia an attractive eco friendly choice.

Manager Chathuri is delightfully helpful, but since she also manages Apa Villa Talpe (where she has an office), she’s not always on-site. Illuketiya is a great villa for friends, families, groups, nature-lovers and couples, and also makes a glorious setting for small weddings, which the staff are well versed in hosting. Despite the swimming pool being a 100m walk from the house, the staff will set up tables down here underneath the great boughs of the trees for lunch or dinner; nothing seems too much trouble for them. Note that the villa is a good ten minutes inland from Galle and can be tricky to find.

Villa Inti

Villa Inti

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

Green is said to be soothing for the soul, and in the verdant surrounds of Villa Inti almost every shade is represented; luminous rice paddies, spindly palms, lush leaves and foliage all conspiring to induce absolute calmness. Gurgling water fountains add to the serenity of this villa which feels wonderfully worn in without a hint of being worn out. The owners have great taste, obviously favouring comfort over ostentation and we happily soaked up the sense of intimacy and warmth, feeling right at home from the minute we walked in.

The atmosphere is one of pure tropical languor, easily indulged while sinking into a sea of cushions, sprawling on a sofa or lounging in a poolside deck chair. Service is relaxed – more of the ‘ask for’ rather than ’anticipated’ style – which suited us, but may not be ideal for those who like to be waited on hand and foot. When we managed to tear our eyes away from the scenery, we worked our way through the plethora of books, magazines, CDs and games, lamenting the fact that we didn’t have time for everything. We were happy to switch off, but the fast internet connection, good mobile reception and fax machine are handy for those who need to stay in touch with the outside world, which – despite the rural setting – isn’t actually that far away.

Villa Istimewa

Villa Istimewa

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

What a breath of fresh air Villa Istimewa is. Charming doesn’t even begin to describe it. It’s a very rustic villa with so much greenery that we half expected Tarzan to come swooping down to greet us when we arrived. With that said, it won’t appeal to everyone, but if you’re looking for an old-style Bali experience that will guarantee you forget all about home then this might just fit the bill. Location-wise it’s a winner being only 50m from Jalan Raya Seminyak and its stacks of boutiques, knick-knack shops, cafés and Bintang Supermarket – all within walking distance.

After nipping out for a coffee at French-style Café Moka (great pastries – just a shame we were too full from our big in-villa breakfast) we came back to the villa and simply hung out by the pool. The semi-outdoor massage studio will get a lot of use so make sure you work out your roster beforehand to keep squabbling to a minimum. The local masseur, Budhi, could give any shaman out of ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ a run for his money so take advantage when you can. Female therapists are also available for a more gentle massage if required.

Although the villa sleeps eight, we thought that might put a bit of a strain on resources and space so would recommend it more for a family or smaller group of singles.

Kamala Hills Naka 12 (James Bond Villa)

Kamala Hills Naka 12 (James Bond Villa)

Thailand » Phuket » Kamala

With this villa's hidden hillside location and secret pool trapdoor, James Bond himself couldn't have come up with a more clever design for enjoying a tropical retreat. It made for an exhilarating start to the day to drop straight into the water from the bedside and emerge into the pool for a morning swim. Why does the master suite have a trapdoor to the pool? Well, why not? It's a fun feature that makes this villa truly one of a kind.

We really enjoyed our prime view of the jungle from all rooms, and especially from the terrace and pool where we spent most of our day. Floating on our back, looking up at the canopy overhead was truly a dream. By night, the jungle's drama continued with floodlights pointed towards it. On our first evening at the villa there was a brief rain shower, so when the lights came on we were treated to the wonderful sight of thick foliage glistening in the darkness, almost like a natural Christmas light show (we did stay here just after Christmas so it was a nice, festive touch). By day, we sat back and watched a squirrel jump out onto a papaya tree to snack on its bulbous green fruit while its avian friends flitted in and around the trees. A Chinese pond heron (we think) sometimes flew down to pose at the pool's edge – perhaps a bit of a show-off.

The bedrooms, with queen- or king-sized beds, offer a nice balance for kids and adults, though their sparse furnishings and lack of entertainment equipment make them suited for sleeping only. Which is fine, since this villa is more about enjoying time together in the pool and comfortable living-dining areas.

Having no staff in the villa meant we were left to our own devices for dining, but a list of places – some of which deliver – in a very useful villa guide led us to some good choices. The villa management company is helpful in getting you settled in and making recommendations for dining and getting around – it also provides an airport pick-up service (for an extra charge) though we had our own transport.

Villa Kelusa

Villa Kelusa

Indonesia » Bali » Ubud

Villa Kelusa is magical, and we feel really privileged to have stayed there.  When we first walked through the entrance and into the living pavilion we could hardly believe our eyes – the views are simply the best we’ve ever come across in Bali, and the way the landscape changed with each shift in the light was bewitching.  After a stunning crimson sunset, fireflies glowed in the darkness, the Southern Cross twinkled high above, and flashes of lighting in the far distance revealed fleeting glimpses of Bali’s mystical mountains on the horizon.  Then pulling back our bedroom curtains in the morning, we counted nine volcanoes hovering above the gossamer mist that carpeted the valley below.

We loved the layout of Villa Kelusa, which works wonderfully for multi-generation families and groups of friends who like to be together but still have space to spread their wings.  We haven’t come across another villa that accords such privacy and space for four bedrooms, and with three separate living areas and two swimming pools, even a crowd could get lost here.

While we retreated to the fabulous master bedroom of Pondok Sapi, a contemporary glass cube with fabulous views, our honeymooning friends loved the privacy of Pondok Surya, whose romantic bedroom, starting-within-the-living-room infinity pool and sensual double bathtub were much appreciated!

A special thank you to Wayan Sudana, the villa manager, who was a fount of information and enriched our stay. His delightful team hails from the local village, and many have been attached to the house from the beginning.  We’re just thankful the owner decided to share her delightful Bali home with us!

Villa Kemala

Villa Kemala

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

First impressions are always important and we received quite a welcome at Villa Kemala, with canapés and passion fruit juice enjoyed on the beautiful hanging terrace. Once we had settled in we were served cappuccino, homemade cakes and excellent, buttery cookies – quite a treat after a long journey.

Only completed a month before our stay (November 2012) we were lucky enough to be amongst the first guests to enjoy the pristine, sparkling newness of Villa Kemala. Rich in details, it’s clear that an enormous amount of time, energy and thought has gone into creating this elegant and luxurious haven. No corners have been cut, fittings are the sleekest, linens are the finest, artwork is stylish, iPod docks are in every room, and artefacts have been thoughtfully placed to avoid any sense of clutter. Gorgeous furnishings include sleek mosquito nets and throws in the upstairs bedrooms, and we were impressed by the small but carefully chosen selection of books and board games.

Villa Kemala seems to have all the bases covered, a peaceful and picturesque setting not far from the beach, stunning pool area and gardens, plus a spa balé for the girls and a pool room for the boys. The staff are fabulous, and took very good care of us without intruding on our space.

Kembang Desa Villas - Villa Ocean (4BR)

Kembang Desa Villas - Villa Ocean (4BR)

Indonesia » Bali » Tabanan

If you’re into nightlife, shopping and eating out in fancy restaurants, then Villa Ocean at Kembang Desa is not the villa for you, but if you love the great outdoors, the sight and sound of the ocean, the mountains and rural local life, you will love this place… we certainly do. Kembang Desa Villas are among our absolute favourite villas in Bali.

Returning to the villa after a long walk along the beach one evening, a delicious meal awaited us – nothing gourmet, just honest, well-prepared food. The cook produces meals from a tasty repertoire of Balinese / Indonesian / International dishes that hit the spot. We were also delighted by the villa’s collection of hundreds of digital movies – all without the evil scratch demon that can ruin the last five minutes of the most-engrossing films!

Make sure you wake up early in the morning when the air and sky are at their most calm and be rewarded with a mountain vista that will leave you speechless. We felt so privileged to stay in this magnificent location, not many visitors get to venture this far, so it really is a rare pleasure and an experience that will stay with us forever.

Villa Kendra

Villa Kendra

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

One of life’s simple pleasures is to drift off to sleep and wake up to the gorgeous smell of tuberose flowers wafting through the air, so we were thrilled to see that Villa Kendra had stocked every suite with a generous arrangement of these classic tropical flowers. Greeted by the staff with fresh watermelon juice and cool hand towels, we were immediately drawn to the pool deck; enjoying the sound of overflowing water against the busy backdrop of the neighbourhood. This villa is perfect for an extended family vacation: mum and dad can take the upstairs master bedroom with the kids in the connecting twin-bedded room, while grandparents, aunts, uncles, or teenagers will be more than happy with the Pool and Garden Suites down below. The kitchen is suitable for light self-catering such as drinks, snacks for the kids and easy meals that don’t require an oven, but the area really lends itself to eating out. After a lazy afternoon by the pool, we decided to go out for dinner and walked 400m to Hana, a small Japanese restaurant, where we tucked into a perfect bowl of ramen and sautéed salmon teriyaki. Then we slowly window-shopped our way to Bintang Supermarket to stock up on a few bits and pieces before heading back to the villa. After a big dose of ultra-hip Jalan Raya Seminyak, we really appreciated the lack of pretension and laid-back family ambiance at Villa Kendra. Next morning, even while we enjoyed our breakfast of poached eggs, whole wheat toast and fresh fruit besides the pool, we were already dreaming about the mezze platter from Zula, just down the street on Jalan Dhyana Pura. Our recommendation: don’t stay at Villa Kendra if you are weight-watching. With the excellent order-in service from Baliepicure and all these tempting treats on your doorstep, you just don’t stand a chance!

Villa Kipi

Villa Kipi

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

We found Villa Kipi to be a modern, practical villa in an excellent close-to-the-beach location. We thought that the size of the rooms and the number of indoor and outdoor living and dining areas was delightfully generous for a four-bedroom property, and even if it was filled with a group of eight guests there would still be plenty of spots for individuals to lose themselves.

This is quite a grown-up villa – possibly best suited to a group of adults - but would also work well for a family despite not being specifically family-friendly. For example, the outdoor area features an extended timber deck around the pool in place of a lawn so even though it is large there’s not a true garden for kids to run around in.

The colonial-style furnishings are lovely; the bathrooms are stylish, light and airy, and a TV in each bedroom ensures yet more privacy for folks who want to escape from their companions. Our favourite room was the open-air lounge on the upper level. We also enjoyed our time at the beach (albeit rather a scruffy section of the beach) without hawkers, touts, or overcrowding spoiling the party. And it was just a three-minute walk back to the villa for a shower and a laze beside the pool. Brilliant! At sunset we returned to the beach for a few beers at a small and popular open-air bar.

The staff at Villa Kipi are helpful and cheery and while they aren’t the most highly trained of professionals, they know how to make your holiday fun. There is a superb selection of home-cooked delights on the suggestion menu, and breakfast is really good too, especially with the sound of the crashing surf just over the way.

Kurulla Villa

Kurulla Villa

Sri Lanka » South Coast » Unawatuna

We found Kurulla Villa to be a very tranquil and convenient base to explore the surrounding beaches and fort of Galle, since its excellent out-of-the-way location is still so close to both. It is a great property for families, offering uncluttered spaces and plenty of privacy. The house is surrounded by a large garden which is mainly flat and laid to lawn, making it ideal for children of all ages to tear about in. The garden is enhanced by a wonderful 22m pool (great for exercising) with a wide, sociable, semi-circular, shelved entrance ideal for lounging or sitting half in or half out of the water. This section of the pool is also quite shallow, making it even more suitable for children.

The house boasts a scattering of antique furniture from both Sri Lanka and abroad, however, since there are only a few paintings and pictures on the walls, the overall effect is quite minimal, a feeling highlighted even more as a result of the ceilings being so high. Whilst there is a small selection of CDs and pool toys, there are no DVDs or board games and only a few books, so you might want to bring some of these with you.

The staff of three keeps the house in order and housekeeper Chandana stays in the staff quarters at night. The cook prepares meals from a basic priced menu, although you can also discuss other simple options with him, which Chandana will then price up for you. Guests also have the option of self-catering or, since there are so many good restaurants within such a short distance, eating out in either Unawatuna or Galle.
