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.

Nirwana Golf  Villas - Ocean and Golf

Nirwana Golf Villas - Ocean and Golf

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Seseh-Tanah Lot

Even though you’re almost on the fairway of one of Asia’s best golf courses, you don’t have to be a golfer to enjoy a stay at this villa. Private homes with beachfront locations are not in abundance on Bali’s south-west coast, which makes Ocean and Golf a particularly good find as well as being good value. There are few better spots to enjoy the famous Bali sunsets than from this villa’s breezy balcony.        

Ocean and Golf incorporates the best of both worlds; a quiet and private residence which, for an additional daily fee per person, also has access to leisure facilities at the neighbouring 5-star resort – you can even order room service (although you do have your own cook who prepare meals from a suggestion menu charging only the cost of ingredients plus 20% service charge). However for guests who want to venture out to experience the shopping, restaurants and nightlife in town, this villa is a little remote (Seminyak, the popular entertainment hub, lies 23km south). We enjoyed walking around the sprawling grounds and whizzing from the villa to the hotel lobby in our golf buggy. The view of Tanah Lot temple from Cendana, one of the award-winning restaurants at the Pan Pacific Nirwana Bali resort, is magnificent – especially at sunset.    

Ocean and Golf is an ideal base for a group of golfers or a golfer who wants to bring the family along. It is sensible for seniors – there are two downstairs bedrooms if steps are difficult to navigate. Whilst there is a twin bedroom for children upstairs and plenty of TV’s to go around. As long as they don’t wander onto the fairway, it is a very safe environment for kids, and the complimentary facilities at the Pan Pacific Nirwana Bali  resort will keep children busy for weeks.

Nirwana Golf Villas - Villa Senja

Nirwana Golf Villas - Villa Senja

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Seseh-Tanah Lot

Villa Senja is not a swanky hi-tech villa, but this is reflected in the price, which is especially good when you take into account the discounts that you are going to get on your golf rates. This is the original luxury Bali style; commonly found in villas and hotels that were built in the ‘90s.Things move fast in Bali, especially in the field of design, so the style looks a bit dated these days, and is sometimes referred to as ‘Bali for beginners’. Nevertheless, the architecture, thatched roofs, local stonework, interior design and furnishings remain both charming and very tropical. There are numerous benefits to being linked to the resort; apart from all the aforementioned facilities, there is an on-site generator (so you won’t get any of the power cuts, which are unfortunately rather common in Bali) and the water pressure in the showers is great (again, this is something that can sometimes be a bit hit and miss in Bali). The villa is a long way from the delicatessens of Seminyak (18km), so if you want meals created with gourmet ingredients you will need to let the staff know well in advance. Local specialties with fresh local ingredients are therefore the cook’s forte, and you can always enjoy fine dining at the resort.

Oazia White

Oazia White

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Umalas-Kerobokan

One night at Villa Oazia White (such a beautifully simple moniker) just wasn’t long enough to really get to know her. That said, we still managed an afternoon on the sunbeds, some down-time in the balé, a movie session on the wonderfully soft couches, a convivial dinner party, a massage at the spa, an indulgent alfresco bath, some decent swim time, a leisurely breakfast and a full night of sleep … but it would have been nice to spread it out over a few long luxurious days.

Everywhere you look there is something to enjoy: antique statues, beckoning sofas, towering trees, flowering shrubs, fluttering butterflies and softly billowing drapes catching the breeze. And there aren’t many villas in Bali that have a river actually running through it. Perfect.

The onsite spa goes beyond the normal offerings of massage and nail treatments by delving into the holistic realms of the mystical with Shamanic Reiki, Cranio-Sacral Therapy, Aqua Flow Therapy, Balinese Shamanic Healing and much more. It has gained a reputation as one of the best in Bali.

We had a most memorable stay at Oazia Spa Villas: meals were prompt and delicious, the cushions were deep and the spa was heaven. All in all, a veritable ‘oasis’ if you will.

Old Palm House

Old Palm House

Sri Lanka » South Coast » Galle

Old Palm House is easily one of the best inland properties near Galle. Perched on a hilltop with views out over a leafy valley, it’s tropical, tranquil and one of my favourite places to stay. This hidden oasis offers the best of both worlds – easy accessibility to the beach (five minutes’ drive) and the opportunity to experience life (and explore) inland. The house is designed very much for succumbing to the easy, relaxed pace of life of the tropics. Polished cement floors keep you cool underfoot and oversized sofas are a delight to melt into. Being open on three sides, the dining area to the front of the house is light and airy, and makes a lovely venue for a meal, by day or night. Housekeeper Chinteka whips up a mean cocktail or two and kept us very well fed - you can ask him for just about anything. The other staff members were always enthusiastic, smiling and eager to please. Nothing seemed too much trouble. Although this is a four-bedroomed house, one of the rooms (the single) is very small and best suited to a child or a nanny. The master bedroom definitely overshadows the others in size and outlook, so you may have to draw straws for it; but for one family, the villa layout is superb – and the pool’s shallow lounging shelf is ideal for little paddlers.

Pandawas Villas

Pandawas Villas

Indonesia » Bali » Ubud

When we rolled up the final steep hill and through the entrance to Pandawas Villas, the stars were overhead and ambient lighting cast elongated shadows across the tropical foliage. Had we arrived in the Garden of Eden? We were led through a pavilion with an intricately painted ceiling tracing the story of the five Pandawas brothers from the Mahabharata (after which the estate is named), and into a huge living pavilion that must be bigger than many entire villas! We later read that this dramatic arrival has been designed to mirror the brothers’ journey through the mountains, leaving worldly desires behind in search of Lord Shiva. The setting is gorgeous, with a real sense of retreat from the hurly burly and immersion in nature’s bounty. There’s space in spades here, with beautiful gardens and lots of private corners for those who want to slip away from the other villa guests. Other than the fountains and constant hum of the cicadas and chattering staff, the only noise was the odd motorbike straining up the steep hill by the villa, emphasizing the delightful quiet the rest of the time. The swimming pool is enormous and there’s plenty space to stretch out, on the deck, or have a massage in the spa balé. Our favourite spot was the Buddy’s Bar balé which commands the highest point of the resort and looks out over emerald rice terraces edged with towering palms – a very special place visited by the famed herons from nearby Petulu village. We liked the double lounger in the bedroom – perfect for languishing with a good book and a lover. The large bed was comfortable but the bedding itself was disappointing. Having said that, other details were well thought out – the universal multi-point sockets fitted throughout the villa, for example, and the home entertainment system in each bedroom.

Panorama Summit

Panorama Summit

Thailand » Koh Samui » Choeng Mon

A line from The Carpenters’ song: “I’m on the top of the world, looking down on creation” pops into my mind as I lie on a sun lounger by the pool at Panorama Summit. Yet although we’re almost in the clouds, it’s only a short (but admittedly steep) drive to the village and pristine beach below. Nothing obscures the view here – even the hedges of white bougainvillea are perfectly trimmed to knee-height so you look over the pretty blossoms, past the coconut plantations, to the glistening temples and beyond to the sailboats in the bay.

And the view doesn’t fade with the sunset. At night you can see the village lights, a green glow from the squid fishing boats, fireworks from the beach resorts and, if you’re as lucky as we were, spectacular flashes of ‘dry lightning’. One of our favourite places to enjoy the view was from the front edge of the infinity pool, perhaps not ideal for those who suffer from vertigo though.

When we felt the need to pay for our over-indulgence at one of the many excellent local seafood restaurants, a friendly game of tennis (racket and ball hire available at the office) at the estate’s shared court, or a walk down to the beach – and back – did the trick.

We enjoyed delicious continental breakfasts prepared by the resident housekeeper, but if you want a cooked breakfast (or a private chef to prepare any other meal), this can easily be arranged for a reasonable fee plus provisions charged at cost plus 15%. Khun Pee, the villa manager, will gladly help you arrange a chef and can take care of many other concierge services too, be it an in-house massage or a boat trip to one of Samui’s outlying islands.

Pantai Lima - Villa Waringin

Pantai Lima - Villa Waringin

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

We stayed at Villa Waringin on a writers' conference and all agreed there could be no finer place for a coming together of creative minds. The villa's homely ambience makes you feel immediately relaxed, while complementary facilities like pull-down projector screens, plus a team of willing, able staff remove every possible hassle, leaving you to get on with the business of the day. The same ease would definitely apply on a holiday, and we tested this theory to the full whenever there was a break in proceedings. Reclining on the terrace sofas with a choice of teas and delicious snacks (the chef does an excellent Croque Monsieur) certainly got the creative juices flowing, as did lying on the cushioned sunbeds by the pool, while some of the best ideas actually emerged during the delicious barbecue dinner on the poolside lawn (not least the notion of a second helping of fresh prawns!). When it was time to retreat to our supremely comfortable bedrooms, flat-screen TVs and iPod docks ensured no one felt over-burdened with work worries before drifting off to sleep. In the morning a fabulous breakfast spread included fresh fruit, eggs with back bacon and pain au chocolat - ample fuel for the day ahead. Although it's a shame not to be able to swim in a sea so close (there are huge breakers and dangerous rip tides), we were more than happy to gaze and gasp at the waves, sound in the knowledge that come sunset we'd be immersed in the pool, watching the sky blush to greet the evening stars.

Paresa Grand Villa 5

Paresa Grand Villa 5

Thailand » Phuket » Kamala

Water, water everywhere! From the expansive sea views to the three swimming pools to the fabulous baths, there's no escaping from aquatic delights at Paresa Grand Villa 5. Soothed by its cool earthy tones, gorgeous Southern Thai design and seamless outdoor and indoor spaces, our worries simply floated away in a sea of serenity. We loved the openness of all the rooms -- there's nothing quite as refreshing as peeling aside an entire wall to greet the morning's tropical breezes. Equally as nice, as evening arrived, was the ease in which the bedrooms could be made cosy by drawing the curtains and switching on the romantic lighting, while the air conditioning cooled down hot bodies after a day in the sun. Paresa's picturesque location and impressive facilities are ideal for a wedding or other celebration, with a full contingent of resort services and staff on hand to help. As a resort-style villa, Paresa does not have the live-in staff that regular villa guests may anticipate but a butler is easily reached by phone. We felt that the subtlety of the interior design made the villa a bit generic looking; some splashes of colour would have added flavour. However, what the villa lacks in character, is made up for by the Paresa Resort staff's smooth professionalism and the good range of activities on offer such as cooking classes, yacht trips, spa sessions or market excursions (additional charges apply). Paresa's many staircases will make it difficult for those with limited mobility and a watchful eye on young children will be needed with the open pools and lack of barriers on some steep areas.

Patong Hill Villa (4BR)

Patong Hill Villa (4BR)

Thailand » Phuket » Patong

In our several journeys up and down Phuket’s busy west coast, we’ve whizzed past the entrance to the narrow, lush lane of Patong Hill Estate many times and always wondered what it looked like inside. The estate is a property pioneer of sorts, being what we understand is the first luxury villa estate in Phuket, built in the early 1990s at the dawn of the island’s tourism boom. This four-bedroom Patong Hill Villa and its sister five-bedroom villa next door were built more recently (2004) at the top of the estate. Though it lacks the flashiness of some of the newer Phuket villas, it’s a lovely, welcoming place with an easy charm that we felt at home in immediately. Patong Hill delivers the full Phuket Island experience: impressive sea views, a jungle setting with whirring cicadas and birdsong, subtle touches of luxury and loads of comfort. The service here is friendly and casual, and there’s a lack of formality that can be a welcome thing if you just want things taken care of with little fuss. If you’re seeking turn-down service and a line of crisply-dressed staff greeting you with garlands on arrival you’ll need to go elsewhere. The villa’s serene setting was marred somewhat on first impression as we arrived to the sound of a blaring TV, which wasn’t turned off till we asked. Once the peace was restored, however, we happily settled in to a routine of watching clouds drift by while sipping cool drinks on the terrace and languid sunbathing sessions by the pool. Though the villa provides a tranquil escape, we think it’s also an ideal launching point for a more action-packed holiday with the bright lights of Patong so close by. Patong is teeming with restaurants to explore, too, though you’d be hard-pressed to find a Thai meal as good as those prepared by the villa cook. Dining in-villa also offers better value since, typically for any tourist-oriented place, there can be some hair-raising prices at some of the better-known eateries in Patong.

Pure Villa

Pure Villa

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

We felt like royalty staying at Pure Villa. The staff were exceptional, not only in taking care of our every whim but also in creating moods to suit the moment. The sheer white elegance of the villa became a canvas for mood lighting at night; tall silver candle holders placed by the staff along the length of the veranda added a warm glow to the evening and lights in the pool turned the water fluorescent with a rainbow of colors. A Bose speaker system installed at every corner of the property meant yoga on the lawn (mats provided), walks around the estate, massages and swimming were all enjoyed with a soundtrack to suit, and the villa iPod was loaded with all the genres we could ask for. With little light pollution, the night sky was amazing, and from the master bedroom we could watch the stars and the sunrise from the comfort of our bed; hello luxury!    

With the in-house chef having exceptional skills in the preparation of Indonesian and Western food, we didn’t look much further than the villa for our meals; and all at only the cost of the shopping plus a 20% service charge. When we did venture out to discover the local sights, having two cars and two drivers on hand (8 hours per day inclusive of cost, petrol extra), and who knew the area so well, made things very easy.
